Chad Copenhaver is a licensed realtor with Realty Executives Associates who has been serving the real estate needs of the people of Knoxville and East Tennessee for over 11 years.

Originally from Charlotte, North Carolina, Chad came to Knoxville in 1994 to attend the University of Tennessee where he earned a degree in communications and played for the UT Tennis Team. Chad was a four-year Letterman, served as the men’s tennis team captain for two years and graduated from UT with honors. After graduating from UT, Chad served as the Director of Tennis for Cherokee Country Club for eight years until 2006, when Chad decided to follow his passion and pursue a career in real estate.

Since 2006, Chad has had a successful career in real estate. Chad’s typical work days involve listings, showings and managing various properties in Knoxville. Chad has worked on all aspects of buying and selling real estate, from new construction to financing to closing. Chad’s experience, expertise and knowledge of the market allow him to properly serve his clients, both buyers and sellers. Chad is a hard-working, reliable professional who quickly gains the trust of his clients. The proof of that lies in his repeat business; the majority of his business is generated from referrals.

Chad lives in West Knoxville with his wife Natalie and daughter, Caroline. They are awaiting the arrival of their second daughter, Olivia James, this April.

Buying and selling a home can be an exciting but sometimes stressful process, and Chad enjoys working hard to make it a seamless, positive experience for all. At the end of the day, his clients’ happiness is his priority.
