Get to know Richard Barbee
If you need a professional real estate broker in the Knoxville area, I am ready to serve.
I am a native of East TN. I earned my B.A. and M.Ed. at Carson-Newman College. I will soon have my Ph.D. from Amridge University.
I am the very proud father of two hearty, smart, good boys. They are my motivation and inspiration.
In my free time, I enjoy practicing martial arts (Muay Thai and BJJ), lifting weights, hiking, camping, reading, and more. I love to laugh, watch cartoons, play games, and listen to music (from Marvin Gaye to Gospel to Hip Hop to Bluegrass).
I take pride in whatever I do. I want to do it well. I am something of a perfectionist in that sense.
I write for 5 local papers. I have always enjoyed the writing process.
