David & Yvonnca Landes
David & Yvonnca Landes have been in the real estate business individually for 20+ years. As a couple, they have worked together for the last 18+ years. Born in Pittsburgh, PA, David moved to Knoxville as an adolescent in the mid eighties, graduated from Farragut High School and went on to study marketing at the University of Tennessee. Immediately following college, he began his career as an appraiser. This start led to forays in all different aspects of the real estate industry.
Yvonnca, conversely, was born and raised in the town of Harriman, TN, a small, close-knit community about 25 miles west of Knoxville. Her love of all things real estate began with her career as a mortgage broker in 1997.
Since their beginnings in the industry, both David and Yvonnca have continued to expand their business interests to include all aspects of real estate. Both are appraisers, mortgage brokers, and Realtors. They are the proprietors of First Equity Mortgage Group, LLC and The Appraisal Firm, LLC. Their affiliate broker’s licenses are hung with Realty Executives Associates. Through their businesses and affiliations, they currently work & specialize in several fields of the real estate industry. Both ply their trades – not only as Realtors, appraisers, and mortgage brokers, but also as real estate consultants and investors as well.
As a practicing agent, Yvonnca is the recipient of the Knoxville Area Association of Realtors Award of Excellence as a Million Dollar producer 2010-2021. She is also a member of the Realty Executive Associates 100% Club, as well as the Knoxville Elite Club, ranking among the top 50 agents in Knox and surrounding counties. Realty Executives is the TOP sales company in the Knoxville market. Her affiliation with Realty Executives has been a very important change in her professional life. Only experienced professionals are affiliated with Realty Executives. The company has more MILLION DOLLAR PRODUCERS than any other company.
Yvonnca has also ventured into the arena of home staging, answering a demand from many of her clients and fulfilling her passion for design. This has led to the creation of their newest company, Landes Staging & Home Design. Under this umbrella, a team of professionals is available for the simplest of design projects and consultations (from re-decorating to remodeling), to large scale home staging, geared towards helping sellers portray their homes in the best possible light, to maximize sales prices and minimize marketing times.
It’s true, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. So, it was only natural that Adrienne followed her parents’ footsteps into real estate. While Adrienne is the newest member of The Landes Team, she has been exposed to the real estate industry virtually all of her life. She is currently enrolled in school, with a double major in interior design and business management. Her contributions to The Landes Team include working with both buyers and sellers, and specializing in home staging.
