Blake handled the sale of my late brother's condo in Knoxville and was fantastic throughout the entire process. He promised personal service and did not disappoint. In fact he went beyond the call several times. His contacts for prepping the condo prior to sale and for the repairs needed following the inspection were invaluable. They did the job professionally, quickly and reasonably He always responded promptly to my inquiries and found a buyer even before the property was listed on MLS. Selling real estate long distance is nerve racking and Blake made the process as painless as possible. I unreservedly recommend him to anyone buying or selling real estate in the Knoxville area.

Helped me purchase a home in Farragut, Tennessee. Great agent with extraordinary communication skills. Highly recommend Blake because of his ability to problem solve and negotiate on my behalf. He took a lot of time to help me find the right home for my needs. He would be my first choice if and when I decide to sell my home because of his easy going personality coupled with his responsiveness. He is very knowledgeable and takes time to listen to my questions and concerns.

Lauren Hightower
My husband and I are so happy that we choose Blake to represent us in our search for our first home. He was always prompt and quick to answer any calls or emails that we made. He was always direct with us about the houses that we looked at, if he felt it was a home that had to many problems or was overpriced he helped in guiding us in the right direction. This is a necessary quality when hiring a Realtor, and such a comfort to a buyer. As a buyer you want to know that the Realtor you have hired has your best interest at heart. I would highly recommend Blake! He is extremely knowledgeable about the Knoxville market and caring about the needs of each client.

Blake is easy to work with and very professional. He was able to meet with me on my schedule. He is not pushy and looks to make clients for life and not just for the current search. Blake understand what his client's are looking for to make the house search easier. His Realtor portal website gave me houses that match what I was looking for and updated every night. I would recommend him to friends and family!

Selling your first home and buying a home can be such a stressful situation. Blake sold our condo in a week and was extremely accommodating to help us find our new home quickly. He made the whole experience as stress free as possible. Blake was such a professional throughout our home selling and buying process. He went above and beyond my expectations of a realtor. I would proudly recommend him to anyone!
Bill Thomas
Blake was very helpful in the purchase of our new home! He was extremely courteous from the first time we spoke. He was knowledgeable in answering out multiple questions and accommodating in setting up viewings of the home we purchased. He always made us feel comfortable and at ease each time we met. We were blessed to have been able to work with him and refer him to everyone we meet looking to sell or purchase a home.

It is hard to make a decision on wether or not to do business with friends, but this is one I am thankful that we chose to do. Blake took on the job of helping me to sell my property/home in East Knoxville, knowing that it could be a timely event. He maintained the highest level of professionalism, costumer/client care, honesty and patience throughout the extent of our business. I now not only respect him as a friend, but have also grown to respect him as a professional and business man. I would not hesitate to refer him to my family, friends, and/or anyone looking into buying or selling real estate.

We recently used Blake to purchase investment property. We are out-of towners and needed an agent with a very thorough knowledge of the area. Blake was the guy, he gave us his knowledge of all areas and guided us to make the right choice. Yet, we never felt "steered". Our hunt, and then closing was very quick and smooth and Blake was always on top of things. He is immediately responsive by phone, text, or email, which is invaluable in the real-estate process. We have bought and sold numerous properties in several states, and have dealt with LOTS of Realtors...many pushed on us by RELO companies. Blake is at the top of the list. We will definitely use him again
Larry Watren
We used Blake to sell our lake house last year. We were very satisfied with his services. Blake did whatever it took to negotiate and close the deal on our home. We are now using him to sell our lake lot. We highly recommend Blake as a realtor and have passed his name on to our neighbors who will be selling their home.
The Adams Family
Blake Rickels did an outstanding job selling our home here in Knoxville, TN. I feel very lucky that he was recommended to us. I couldn't of asked for better customer service. I highly recommend him if your looking to sell a home. He always answered his phone and responded quickly to any emails or text messages.

After a frustrating six months on the market with another real estate company and one offer that was withdrawn after a half dozen counter offers back and forth, we listed with Blake who sold our house in LESS THAN A WEEK, showing it multiple times before it even hit the MLS!!! He was proactive, responsive, positive and extremely professional. He knew the area, our target buyers and how to market our home for a quick sale. We would not hesitate to recommend Blake Rickels without reservation! He's simply the BEST!!!
Tim McGinnis
Blake did an outstanding job selling our home! He is a true go getter and provides impressive service through out the entire sale. His advertising was excellent!

Blake was the 3rd agent to help sell our Parent's Estate. Living over 2500 miles from the property, it took a VERY SPECIAL relationship between seller and agent. The first 2 were recommended by local people. Being 4th generation Sales I should have started off interviewing agents, brokers and houses myself. When you loose a Parent unexpectedly, you look for any help you can get.... After the first 2 agents didn't work out, I started interviewing agents myself. After 3 days and getting one on one with 11 of Knoxvilles's finest agents, I decided to go into business with Mr. BLAKE RICKELS With Keller Williams in Farragut TN. Having hired and fired hundreds of sales people in the last 30 years I can say without any hesitation that Blake Rickels is one of the top 5 Sales People I have EVER had the pleasure to work with! I explained to Blake that I was 2500 miles from the house. He would have to be there in my absence.... Blake never blinked. He said that would be "no problem". Blake Rickels backed up every word of it. If it was a call to go by the house to turn off the lights or meet with a contractor, he NEVER let me down. When the yacht industry comes back, and it is.... I am going to make Mr. Rickels a VERY WEALTHY MAN. You see, I am going to steal him and his talent and bring it to yacht sales! Blake Rickels comes with my HIGHEST RECOMMANDATION! Feel free to contact me via Zillow for my personal endorsement. "They don't care how much you know until they know how much you care". A heart felt Thank You Blake..... Ed Bancroft U.S. Navy Ret.
