Slyman Real Estate

Project Description

The year was 1971. Five years earlier James “Jim” Slyman had graduated from Carson-Newman University with a major in business and a minor in economics. Having worked for the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) since graduation, Jim had a vision for a business of his own.

Since high school, the Knoxville native had been fascinated with real estate. He finished his last day at TVA on a Friday, and opened Slyman Real Estate & Auction Company in the back room of a Hallmark card shop the following Monday.

More than 50 years later, Slyman Real Estate & Auction Company has become an integral part of the regional real estate landscape and a true family business. Six members of the Slyman family have been joined by nearly two dozen of Knoxville’s finest Realtors in providing a boutique atmosphere with big-company results. Call us today, and enjoy the positive real estate experience that only a local agency can provide.


Throughout East Tennessee, the Slyman name has represented excellence in real estate for over 50 years. Founded in Knoxville, Tennessee by James “Jim” Slyman in 1971, Slyman Real Estate is the area’s top producing independent real estate company. We pride ourselves on offering a superior level of service accompanied by a big helping of Southern hospitality. When it’s time to buy or sell your property, you can trust our experienced team of full-time agents to be committed to your real estate needs.
