Who are your biggest influences?

People who I’ve looked up to don’t just define success by the dollars they make. If you’ve talked with me at all about my job as a realtor, I’ve told you that I see myself as a helper – not a salesperson. Whatever goals my clients have, I help them reach those! For my clients to be happy on closing day and for them to benefit from my hard work – that’s what I call success!

What are some things you’d like people to know about your company?

Oak Leaf Real Estate was founded by Kim Rowland, Broker. Kim has been in the Tennessee real estate business for decades and has successfully overseen multiple real estate offices, large and small.  Oak Leaf Real Estate is an intentionally small, boutique real estate firm focusing on taking great care of our clients, through life transitions that involve real estate. Upsizing, Relocating, Downsizing, Investing, Land Purchasing. We are here to help!  

How did you get started?

Since 2014, I have worked as a relator in Nashville and Middle Tennessee. I pride myself on taking exceptional care of my clients and always going above and beyond. Selling/purchasing a piece of real estate is one of the most important decisions we can make in our lifetime. I love using my experience, knowledge, and expertise to take as much stress as possible off the shoulders of my clients. There have been a lot of real estate market fluctuations in Middle Tennessee, and we’ve experienced some extremes just this year. Navigating the market is what I do best and I absolutely love that no two days are alike in my job.

What advice would you give someone looking to get into your industry?

Real Estate is not for the faint of heart. The highs are high, but the lows are low. Chat with a current Real Estate Agent about their experience and ask them everything. Be ready to never stop learning, as the market is ever-changing. Be tenacious yet flexible. Don’t be afraid to answer a question with “I don’t know” then seek the answers.   

Reach out to Rachel for your real estate needs, if you have any questions or would like to chat about what is going on in the market today! She would love to meet you.  Follow her on Instagram and Search Tennessee Properties.
