MCDONALD REALTY

When people think of South Knoxville, they think of new businesses such as TrailHead Beer Market, SoKno Taco, Alliance, Simpl, Honeybee, South Coast Pizza, Landing House, Everything Mushrooms, Hi-Wire Brewing and long time favorites like Ye Ole Steak House, Round -UP, McDonald Billiard Supply and Kay’s Ice Cream.

Only the strong survive the ups and downs of the market, and Bonnie (28 years) and I (15 years) are still standing. It’s fitting that McDonald Realty, LLC join the list of South Knox favorites.

My Dad, Bill McDonald, taught me simple but crucial rules applicable in real estate and in life: “Don’t ever tell a lie because then you don’t have to remember what you say; treat all deals the same regardless of the number of zeros; return your calls; a pig gets fat, and a hog gets slaughtered; and at the end of the day, all you’ve got is your name.“

Dad would say “if we can make a living in South Knoxville, we can make a living anywhere.” Bonnie and I are fortunate to have been mentored by him. South Knoxville isn’t “the red headed stepchild of Knoxville” any more; it’s the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. For those who have always lived across the bridge, South Knoxville isn’t just a location. It’s a lifestyle!

We love East Tennessee’s natural beauty, and we welcome everyone to come enjoy all we have across the bridge.

McDonald Realty will open in May 2020 in the heartof the South Knoxville waterfront. When people see the McDonald Realty Logo, I hope they know that we can help with all their real estate needs. We believe relationships make the difference.
