"Hope helped us find a home 3 years ago and responded to every criteria that we gave her. One was that we could call her back 3 Years later to sell it. It all worked on both ends. She made a long-distance sale simple, communicating at every step and representing our interests at every turn. Highly recommend!"
Beth Curry - Knoxville TN
We contacted Hope to help us sell our house after trying to sell it ourselves. In less than 48 hours she developed a comprehensive marketing plan, and conducted a comparative analysis on our home. She brought in a professional photographer and videographer and quickly had our house on the market. Within two weeks we had a showing, an offer and eventually a contact. Hope and her team were the consummate professionals. They were extremely responsive, helpful, competent and thorough. She kept us updated along the way and took care of every detail even though were already had moved to our new house in another state. She made the process so much easier. She went way above and beyond and I highly recommend her. I have never seen anyone work harder for a client. Do yourself a favor and call Hope Cudd. See for yourself what a true professional looks like, you will be glad you did
Dan Johnson - Friendsville TN
Our realtor in Washington picked Hope to be our realtor in Tennessee for a reason. The reason is because Hope is professional, personable, knowledgeable and helpful in all aspects of moving to a new area, not just choosing a home. Hope doesn't try to sway you to buy a particular property unless you want to buy it. Hope is always looking out for her client's best interest.
Buddy & Donna Lee Maryville, TN
I would hands down recommend Hope Cudd, for the selling/buying of your next home. Very easy going to deal with, worked around my schedule, made sure I was on top of everything..always sending me listings...what I enjoyed the most was that she wasn't pushy and really made me feel like she was looking out for my best interest, not only in purchasing a home but also the potential resell as well. I've personally dealt with other realtors where they like to deal only in emails and text, anytime hope had something important to say or something that needed my prompt response I always had a phone call..I couldn't have asked for a better realtor to guide me in the process of my new home...she's not only gained a customer for life in my but an advocate for how wonderful of a job she does
Walter Largaespada - Maryville, TN
Hope and Amy Davis are AMAZING! We moved from Wisconsin and obviously could not be here all the time for buying our home so Hope and Amy kept us in the loop constantly and were SO HELPFUL. It made us nervous not being here for the home inspection and such, but they took care of it for us and even when I had offered to call certain people for inspections, etc., they said they would handle everything. It was very comforting and made the process less stressful. They also recommended veterinarians for our animals and offered any advice/questions we have about the area. THANK YOU GUYS SO MUCH. Sincerely appreciate everything you have done for us!
Athena & Jacob Shepard - Walland, TN
We had an absolutely great experience with Hope and her partner Amy Davis. They were no doubt the best two we could have had on our home buying experience. They had everything we needed to us as quickly as they could and great ideas. We recommend them to anyone buying or selling. Definitely number 1 in our book
Eric & Martina Fisher- Maryville, TN
Hope is the best of the best! If you want the best realtor in Knoxville or the area, look no further because you found her. Trust me, this is the second home I have bought with Hope and she is fantastic. Always professional and always willing to help you find the dream home your looking for. Thanks again Hope!
Karie Hodges Knoxville, TN
Hope has the experience, knowledge base, and expertise we were looking for in a Realtor. She was able to help us get the house up, on the market, and sold quickly. I am more than satisfied.
Mark Steiner Maryville TN
Making the decision to sell our home was a big one but having Hope Cudd as our agent made the process very quick and smooth. Hope is a true professional but caring and fun also. She is with you and guides you every step of the way. She took care of all the details and was there whenever we needed her. I would recommend her to anyone, buying or selling.
Beth Haug Maryville, TN
Hope is an excellent real estate agent. She came to the home prepared with necessary information about the property, comparable real estate listings, and a plan for advertising our listing. I was very impressed with her list of possible buyers and how they might use the property. She carefully evaluated the house and property. She sent a list of recommendations to upgrade the house and property to make them more appealing to a buyer. She sent a weekly e-mail to keep me informed of website activity on our listing. Hope sent an e-mail notification each time our property was being shown and a follow up e-mail notification of the feedback from the showing. I found this extremely helpful. When she received notice of an offer, she notified us immediately. She met with us and advised us in creating our counter offer. We had several things to accomplish before closing and she very graciously stepped up and helped to prepare for closing ahead of the contract date. She came to my home to pick up pest control contract. She also worked with the title agency to see that closing went as smoothly as possible.
On a personal note, I would like to express my thanks for her understanding and compassion as we went through the process of selling our family home. This home was built by our grandfather and we, the heirs of the estate, spent a lot of our childhood time in this house. It was a very bittersweet time and Hope was very respectful of our emotions, sad to see it go, but glad to move on with settling the estate. She was friendly, always returned our calls, listened to our concerns, and made good professional recommendations. I am very pleased with her professional work as our real estate agent.
Janet Small- Maryville, TN
Hope Cudd and Amy Davis from ReMax First in Maryville, TN partnered to make my family's home buying experience simply amazing. They were able to get me and my family in to our new home before Christmas (within 5 weeks of making an offer) simply because they would not take "no" for an answer. Hope and Amy always kept us up to date and never were too busy to sit down and explain to us answers to all questions we had each step of the process. Simply an amazing experience. Do not hesitate to contact Hope or Amy when you are in the market for a new home
Chad & Crystal Price - Madisonville, TN
Hope and Amy made our selling experience quick and easy! From the beginning, they were very honest and open with us, took time to answer any questions that we had, and helped us sell our house in a very short amount of time. They made us feel comfortable throughout the whole process, and we truly believe they had our best interest in mind. I would definitely recommend them to anyone buying or selling
Adrian & Kristin Womac- Rockford, TN
Really went to bat for us! We feel we got a great deal and they stuck with us thru any bumps in the road, had issues with final home inspection and they were by outside, we had no idea what to do since this was our first home. Would highly recommend.
Sheena & Kyle Johnson - Knoxville, TN
This was a professional yet fun under taking. Everything was explained and addressed quick fast and in a hurry. She was great in every detail. From the showing of multiple properties, to putting in 3 different offers and the final offer and purchase of our home. Including closing which was a pain that they took charge and got done quick.
Darrell Banks Bean Station, TN
Hope listened to what we wanted and helped us find the perfect home. She gave us great advise and walked us through the entire process. She was quick to get back with us with any concerns and stayed on top of every detail. I really appreciate all of her support and would recommend her to anyone I know.
Billy & Christina Hampton - Maryville, TN
Hope is not only very experienced in the field, but understands how to deal with people. She kept us well informed and walked us through the negotiations with tact and assurance.
Hope is honest in the assessment of your home as well as in the house you want to purchase. She tells you not what you want to here, but what you need to know!
We trusted her opinion and she sold our house when 4 others previous agents could not!
Thank you from both of us!
Carlos & Cathy De La Cuesta
Hope was exactly what my family needed. She made the difficult process of preparing and selling a home while we lived far away in another state relatively easy and a success. Always responsive and knowledeable, she was critical to our experience.
Brian Scott - Frederick,MD
Strongly competent, thorough and prepared.
Dr Ben Roe
We began our search online from out of state. Hope was the first realtor to return our call and her punctuality carried through the months-long process. She was a joy to work with and her perfect mix of professionalism, integrity and faith helped guide us into our perfect home! I have since introduced her to several other clients who are equally as impressed!
Steve & Amy Davis
"Hope was wonderful throughout the entire process of selling our home. Her knowledge and expertise were priceless. She was readily available to answer questions and kept us informed of next steps along the way. She took care of all of the details that we would have overlooked on our own. We wouldn't have been able to sell so quickly especially in such bad weather without her guidance and support. We highly recommend Hope to anyone looking to sell their home."
- Tim & Susann Starrett Maryville, TN
“Hope was recommended to us after our home had been on the market for 9 months and we had had no offers! She provided us with information about area comparables and showed us what price we needed to list our house to be competitive. We were able to sell it within 8 weeks! We were so pleased with the whole process because Hope kept us informed on how things were going even when we moved just 2 weeks after listing the house. Her expertise in the real estate market made a huge difference..even in things like sign placement in our yard. I just wish we had started with her initially. (October 2011) instead of going through 9 months of waiting. But God’s plans are higher and better and his timing is perfect! We’re thankful it included Hope.”
– Richard & Ramona Jordan Maryville TN
“We both bought and sold our homes with Hope. There is absolutely nothing I could say negative about the experience. We had never used a Realtor before and had no idea the process of buying or selling a home. Hope was the perfect choice. We had special requirements for our home as my husband is confined to a wheelchair. She listened to our needs & found the perfect house for us. She negotiated an amazing price for us and assisted us in finding the bank for financing. Very easliy accessible and I will always have her number memorized. Then when it came time to sell our home, she showed us what the fair market value was & we sold our home to the first people who looked at it! We always knew Hope was on our side. We felt very comfortable because of her knowledge in all the steps it takes to close.”
– Danny & Michelle Malone Maryville, TN
Hope worked hard on finding a buyer for both our properties.
Kenneth Marsh- Alabama
“I have purchased multiple properties during the last 20 years and can honestly say that I have never encountered a real estate agent that even comes close to equaling the outstanding service provided by Mrs. Hope Cudd. As a real estate attorney and real estate developer, I deal with agents and brokers on a daily basis and have become accustomed to the complacency demonstrated by a large percentage of so-called “real estate professionals”. Selling a home is a lot more than simply putting up a sign and waiting for calls and I’m afraid that fact has been ignored by many agents.
Mrs. Cudd stands in sharp contrast to the stereotypical agent. I am still impressed with the service she provided from my initial call all the way to closing and beyond. In essence, Mrs. Cudd’s services are so thorough and complete that I can not thing of a single item I would have wanted or needed that wasn’t taken care of by Mrs. Cudd. Her knowledge of the products she is selling and the region she works in is truly impressive and she dutifully answered every imaginable question I had. The fact that I’m relocating my family from Florida made the transaction even more complicated, but after my very first meeting with Mrs. Cudd, I realized that with her working by our side, the transaction and relocation would be very smooth.
Mrs. Cudd provided us with voluminous information on the area and the the many pamphlets and booklets we were handed have become my relocation bible. Mrs. Cudd and RE/MAX have put together an impressive amount of information on the area, ranging from every telephone number I could even need, to local facts and figures on various useful topics. Over and above what she provided in writing, Mrs. Cudd’s candid and honest personal information on the area helped my large family feel very much at ease with our big move. In addition, Mrs. Cudd’s help in facilitating and coordinating outside services, such as home, termite and septic tank inspectors, surveyors, title and insurance agents and more, was instrumental in making this sale so smooth and enjoyable.
Mrs. Cudd’s level of service is so thorough that I’m not embarrassed to admit that if not for her constant emails, letters and reminders, I would have forgettten to address several key items needed for closing. Mrs. Cudd clearly possesses excellent communication and interpersonal skills and she really has found a perfect combination of professionalism, experience, knowledge, honesty and friendliness. On a more personal level, I believe that one of Mrs. Cudd’s greatest assets is that she comes across as someone who loves her job, is honest and sincere to a fault and wears her heart on her sleeves – what you see what you get! In this day and age, this is a very refreshing attitude and one that all brokers and/or agents should aspire to.
I’m at a loss for words to express in more detail how meeting Mrs. Cudd and working closely with her has positively impacted my family. I had perviously met with a few other agents in the area and the experience was not very pleasant. I was beginning to get a bit discouraged, but when we met Mrs. Cudd everything changed for the better and I’m convoked that we may not have moved to the area if we had not crossed paths with her.
I would be honored to talk to any of Mrs. Cudd’s potential clients and you can feel free to give my name and number to anyone you deem necessary. My current number is (305)986-4563. I will provide Mrs. Cudd with new contact information once I move to Friendsville in December.”

When it came crunch time she was on top of things and made sure everything was done
Carl Miller, Maryville TN
“I was recently reminded that the sale of a home is a very emotional process. Given all of the emotional issues that go along with the sale of a home, the current housing market adds even more stress onto this entire process. I was especially aware of this when I began working with Hope and Suzie because I had been working with another realtor for two years! Although my former realtor was a very lovely person, our experience with the attempted sale of our home was particularly stressful and completely unfruitful!
It was after a year and a half of no interest shown at all in my home that Hope and Suzie were recommended to us. I informed Hope And Suzie that I was currently working with another realtor and that I intended to complete my contract for at least another six months. I was particularly impressed early on with Hope and Suzie because they worked very hard and provided us with a complete market analysis of our home and made many helpful suggestions to help us, even though it would be possible for us to use these suggestions with our current realtor. I was immediately impressed with their professionalism!
Perseverance, patience, and professionalism prevailed in the end when we reached out to Hope and Suzie last winter to ask them to assist us in the sell of our home. We had complete confidence, based on our past experience with them, that they would represent us very well. As a matter of fact, our expectations were met and exceeded during this process with Hope and Suzie. They wasted no time in taking pictures to market our home, displayed a fabulous sign, but began looking for the “right” people for our property! We were most impressed with their suggestion to us that we stop spending a lot of money on this home and made practical, affordable suggestions to help us statge the home. This was a very valuable piece of advice for my husband and me because we were under the impression that we had to replace and fix everything from soup to nuts on this house. Hope and Suzie helped us to put into perspective the things that truly needed to be done to sell our home. As a result, we received a larger financial gain when our home sold.
In just a few short weeks after we too the suggestions that Hope and Suzie made we had our first and final offer on our home! We can’t thank our realtors enough for making this experience so wonderful and fruitful. It was truly a pleasant experience from our first meeting all the way through to the closing of our home.
A few weeks following the sale of our home, we received a photo album of very precious pictures of the landscaping and all of the rooms of our home. Given the fact that this was a very special home to us, this token meant more to us than we can say.
I can honestly say that because of our experience with Hope and Suzie, we have a whole new standard to compare all real estate agents! Thankfully, we will not need to look any further as long as Hope and Susie are around!”
– Kelly & David Bratcher, Knoxville, TN
“It was a real pleasure working with you to find our dream home. We really appreciate your hard work and attention to details. Your knowledge of the business and of the area was exceptional.
Especially helpful was the binder you put together with the local area information. My biggest concern with this process was timing and it worked out perfectly. Bonnie and I feel that we have found a new friend in Maryville. Thanks Hope.”
– Jerry & Bonnie Righter. Maryville, TN
“She placed various professional signs to direct buyers to our home and priced our home at market value. Hope did an excellent job in marketing our home. We recommend her as an agent to anyone that is looking fo help in listing or buying a home. She made professional brochures, hired a pro photographer & she gave advice on staging our home to appeal to the most buyers. With Hope being our agent and pricing it with current market prices; our home sold within 37 days.”
– Jeff & Martha Shook Maryville, TN
“Our buying experience with Hope Cudd was excellent in every way. She knows the area and really listened to our wants and needs. No text or phone call to her went more than an hour without her responding. We were moving here from out of state and we just can’t say enough about how easy Hope made this whole experience! She was a blessing!”
– Ronald & Terri Klingman Maryville, TN
“She stayed on top of every detail,dealt with everything in a timely manner & was always available to answer any questions that we had. We used Remax here in Nashville also. Hope Cudd and Alex Sigg are my realtors for East TN & Middle TN. Top of their game!”
– Douglas & Kathy Hall Nashville, TN
“Your attention to detail and thorough knowledge of the area plus meeting my wants and needs were beyond my expectations!”
– Matt Johnson Walland, TN
Excellent service, Hope is very hard working and extremely dedicated to her clients!
Amy Humbert - Maryville, TN
“She possesses a rare combination of intelligence, initiative and caring, a combination which could easily propel her to the top of any career field, and we count ourselves lucky that she chose real estate and was available when we were looking. Our association with Hope began when my wife was searching for information on the internet; Hope had the foresight to put together a welcome packet for prospective clients. Once we contacted her, she remained vigilant and dedicated, providing tips, advice and eventually a well reasoned reconnaissance of available houses in the area. Once we had found a house, she was amazingly thorough and professional in handling the paperwork and inspections required. We truly could not have done all that we did in the time we had, had it not been for Hope. We heartily recommend her to anyone thinking of buying or selling property in the Maryville area. She will definitely not disappoint you.”
– Calvin T & April P Higgs- Maryville, TN
"Prior to meeting Hope Cudd, I had talked to 2 other Realtors and they were no help at all.
I called Hope on a Sunday night & she answered the phone. Unbelievable! From that moment until present she has gone 100% above and beyond. I could not have purchased this home without her. She is the best of the best in the business. There were a few obstacles but Hope took care of them and made the entire buying process perfect."
- D. Ulivi Coal City, IL
Whether you are first time home buyer or purchasing the home of your dreams, choosing the correct agent is by far the most important aspect to ensuring a successful outcome to a difficult and stressful process. While many traits define the best agents, by far and away the most important thing to consider is- can I trust my agent? While I could go on and on how Hope is extremely competent, knowledgeable, hard working and personable, the best thing to know about this fine agent is that you can trust her. My home buying experience was full of twists and turns and almost guaranteed yours will be also, but regardless of what happens, Hope is there for you. I started with an agent and ended with a friend. Stop looking, you have found your agent.
Kevin Carpenter - Maryville, TN
I had a great experience with both Hope & David. THey guided me through the process and encouraged me when something didn't go so well. Both seemed to have great rapport with other agents. I really feel both were more concerned about me being happy rather than just making a transaction happen."
- Stan Burnette- Alcoa, TN
She stayed on top of every detail,dealt with everything in a timely manner & was always available to answer any questions that we had. We used Remax here in Nashville also. Hope Cudd and Alex Sigg are my realtors for East TN & Middle TN. Top of their game!"

Your attention to detail and thorough knowledge of the area plus meeting my wants and needs were beyond my expectations!"
- Matt Johnson Walland, TN
"I was just thinking today about how much I love our new home. Although there is still a lot to do, it’s coming along nicely. I want to thank you for helping us with the purchase.
It was so nice to work with you again. Having someone we feel comfortable with makes the home buying experience much more pleasant. When we need a realtor again, we will definitely call you.
But, until then please don’t be a stranger!
Thanks, Tara & David Maryville, TN
Hope recommended changes for me to make at my house, which made it show better. She was so helpful with what I needed to do before I listed the house, and gave me 24 hour notice before each showing. She was very knowledge about the market in our area. She worked in difficult situations at times to show my house, but never commented on it, She is very good at doing what she says she will do. I had my house listed with two different agents in the past, but they did not sell it. I would recommend her highly for selling or buying a home. She also gave me the name of a honest repair co., which I had a hard time finding by myself. She went beyond what her job was to help me with every step in selling and buying a house. Her knowledge and experience with selling, closing laws and procedures were super, She was a professional in every way, dress, honest, and respectful."

- Richard & Ramona Jordan Maryville TN
Hope Cudd is a great agent. She took charge and made my home ready to sell and talked me through all that it would take to sell my house. She found all the right people that could make the house repairs and sold the house after only 3 weeks of multiple showings. She made sure that the people that where interested in my home were prequalified for a loan, so as, that there was no time wasted on people that could not even afford a home and I did not waste valuable time on an offer that would not go through. They had to be qualified with a bank before an offer was excepted. She was on top of everything , everyday, right up to the closing.
Would recommend her highly.
Thank you Hope for a wonderful job, helping me and doing all the work.
