Robert Threlkeld knows about taking risks. One of the first risks he took in his adult life was getting into real estate. That risk turned out to be one of the best decisions he has ever made.

“I started in real estate in 2012 just as the economy was starting to rebound,” Threlkeld said. “I went into real estate because I felt there was a need and opportunity to help people and be my own boss at the same time. It sounds strange now because so many people have gotten into real estate over the last several years, but when I got my license that was not the case. It was a big risk at the time but something I am so thankful for. I have poured my heart into this business and it has been a rewarding experience.”

Now an Affiliate Broker and a Triple Gold Award Winner for 2018 Production at Keller Williams, Threlkeld called on friends to help him as he was getting started. My first sale was for my friend and neighbor in Northshore Village, Todd Love, he explained. I sold his condo and helped him purchase in Northshore Town Center. I am always so grateful for business, but the clients who trusted me early on really mean a lot to me.

Friends and family are important to Threlkeld. Robert and his wife Hailey have been
married since 2013. They live in a mid-century modern home in Riverbend with two rescue dogs named Scooter and Gracie.

“I enjoy playing golf and while I don’t think I get to play enough, Hailey thinks otherwise,” Threlkeld said with a smile. “We are so lucky in East Tennessee to have so many outdoor activities at our fingertips. Mountains, lakes and rivers-- we’ve got it all, and I enjoy it all.”

Threlkeld knows that in order to do a great job for his clients, he must equip them with the information they need. “We try to do a lot of work on the front end to prepare our clients to put their best foot forward when they find the right home,” he explained. “It is crucial for the agent to have a good pulse on the market and position the buyer’s offer so that it appeals to what the seller is looking for. And conversely, when selling, it is crucial to price a home right and know how to navigate all the variables of the offer process so we can get our client the most we can from the home sale.”

Being persistent, having a competitive spirit and possessing a servant’s heart are the core
principles Threlkeld follows.

“This profession requires you wear so many different hats and is honestly not for the faint of heart,” he stated. “There are many ups and downs which require an even-keeled temperament to make it through the long haul. Real estate contains many ‘gray areas,’ but we stay away from those. We are building our business on a solid foundation, and we know at the end of each day we can sleep well knowing our clients are being well cared for.”
