Started in 1983 in Sevier County, Homes & Land was one of the first real estate magazines in East Tennessee. Locally owned by Russ & Cheryl Haskins, they have been serving the real estate community of East and Middle Tennessee. Through the years the Haskins have won many awards from Homes & Land for their hard work but none are greater than the honor they received from the Great Smoky Mountains Association of REALTORS® in 2003 when the board named the new addition of their building "Haskins Hall" in honor of what they've done for Sevier County.
Homes & Land is a family owned and operated business. They are assisted by their son, Russell, their daughter, Kristina Longmire, and their son-in-law, Glenn Longmire. Russell and Kristina have always helped with the business even when they were young doing small "paper work" tasks. As they grew older their tasks increased and now Kristina manages the office and production while Russell manages their Foothills of East Tennessee edition and co-manages Knoxville. Glenn knew he was marrying into a family business so it wasn't long after he joined their family that they put him to work too. Glenn now manages their Tennessee Valley magazine and co-manages Knoxville. Joining the family team in 2005 is Russ & Cheryl's nephew, Kerry Haskins. Kerry helps out in all aspects of the business.
Since their beginning in Sevier County, they have expanded to 7 Homes & Land magazines covering communities across East and Middle Tennessee. Locally the Haskins cover communities from Carthage to Gatlinburg and from Byrdstown to Athens and many cities in between. Homes & Land magazine is a nationwide franchise in over 30,000 communities across North America.
Homes & Land is also an internet pioneer. Back in 1992 they were one of the original companies to offer online listings to homebuyers. Many changes have taken place online since then and Homes & Land has stayed on the cutting edge, recently unveiling one of their newest products, Homes & Land EZ Tour. Homes & Land EZ Tour automatically creates online property tours when agents upload six or more listing photos to HomesAndLand.com. Agents do not need special cameras, equipment, or software. The effect is similar to the one used by film maker Ken Burns in his popular documentary on The Civil War. The listing is put in motion as the viewer pans in and out of the property photo. Agents can also post their Homes & Land EZ Tour to their personal site and to other popular real estate websites. In 2001, Haskins developed RetireToTennessee.com to reach baby boomers moving to our state. You can find information about different communities across East and Middle Tennessee on RetireToTennessee.com as well as local real estate for sale in Homes & Land.
