“Earning my CRS designation will allow me to do my job as a Realtor with more confidence which is an added value to my clients,” said Claire. “The extra hours of education were well worth all the things I have learned about adjusting to each market, helping my clients with their needs verses their wants and knowing how to work my real estate business with better and faster results.”


Since 1989, Claire has been a full time licensed Realtor in Tennessee assisting buyers and sellers in and around Germantown, Collierville, Cordova and East Memphis. She specializes in residential real estate sales focusing on first-time homebuyers, new home construction and relocation.
