Here are a few things my clients have to say about my services. For my full list of recommendations visit my profile on Zillow.
Shannon is awesome! She came over to my house and thoroughly explained the sales process and went over the comparable sales so I would have a good idea what my house was worth. I listed my house with her the next day and she immediately put my house on numerous internet sites which immediately helped get my house shown several times over the next few days. Within five days of her listing the house, I had an offer which was acceptable and 30 days later my house was sold! Shannon was always available to answer my questions and guided me through the sales process. Everything went smooth. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. I would highly recommend Shannon to anyone that is wanting to buy or sell a home!
Scott Martin, Seller
My husband and I used Shannon as our realtor to purchase our first home. We absolutely loved working with her. Before we even met, she sent us information to help prepare us for what to expect on our house buying journey, and she walked us through the whole process step by step. She was always easy to contact and prompt to respond. I would definitely recommend Shannon to others looking to buy a home.
McKenzie & Doug Lindsey, Buyer
I feel like I really lucked into getting Shannon as my realtor! This was my first home purchase, and I don’t have family in town, so Shannon’s expertise and empathy were sorely needed. She very quickly understood what I was looking for in a home and possesses a depth of knowledge about Knoxville that enabled her to show me just what I had in mind. She responded to queries at all times of the day/week and was always looking out for my best interest. I never had to worry about anything falling through the cracks, and I felt confident in relying on her knowledge and experience where my own were lacking. I can’t recommend Shannon highly enough! I love my new home, and Shannon was my rock through the entire process.
Jessica Abernathy, Buyer
Shannon will exceed all of your expectations as an agent. She knows the area extremely well, suggests properties but is also very open to input from the buyer, answers questions quickly and accurately (no matter how many questions!) and she makes the process as painless as it could possibly be. She is simply amazing!!
Elizabeth May, DVM, Buyer
Shannon did a tremendous job representing me in the sale of our Condo in Knoxville. She showed great knowledge, skill and initiative throughout
the process. This was critical for me as I was hundreds of miles away during the entire process. Shannon sourced various people to prepare the property, aggressively marketed it, and closed the sale. I would recommend Shannon to anyone who is looking to buy or sell real estate in the Knoxville market!
Stephen Bradley, Seller
We are so happy with our new home purchase! Although we were not new homebuyers, the process could not have been smoother. We relocated with a job promotion and had “no clue” about the city or where we should live. Shannon knows Knoxville! Most important to us she listened to our wants, needs and desires in a home and matched those with properties in areas we would like within our budget. We very much appreciated Shannon’s fast & efficient communication skills via email, phone calls, & texts. This communication kept us “on track” during a long distance buying process and family relocation. Once we narrowed the search to the area of town we wanted to live, she found us the perfect house. If you are currently living in Knoxville or looking to relocate to the area, we would highly recommend Shannon to find you the home of your dreams. We can’t thank you enough Shannon Foster-Boline!
Scott & Theresa Eddy, Buyer
Shannon was wonderful to work with! As first time home buyers my husband and I were unfamiliar with the process, but she walked us through it step by step! She made herself avai
lable to fit our schedules, even during the holidays and went above and beyond to show us so many homes on the market. I would highly recommend her services!
Amanda & John Feathers, Buyer
Definitely a relocation expert. Our family was a out of state corporate relocation given a short time to find a home and close on one. Most searching by us had to done long distance and trusting the professional local knowledge of Mrs. Foster-Boline and her personal knowledge of us gained by long distance communication. Her work ethic was excellent and her responsiveness time back to us via e-mail, phone, and sometimes even text was amazing and much appreciated considering our special circumstances All home showings had to be done in several short high pressure visits where we flew into Tennessee to look at sometimes 10 homes a day in 3 counties. She would always clear out our schedule for us those trips and treat us with the utmost hospitality as clients. You were given the impression that no matter the price range of the client that she treated all of them with the same hospitality. Her knowledge was impressive in her field. She would always be strictly honest and observant about every home we were shown looking out for our best interest always first, in both presently and in the future as a homeowner. She would then after laying out the facts always let us on our own form our own opinions intellectually and emotionally about the homes we visited. Her negotiation skills with sellers were excellent. She always was fair and ethical with sellers, but advocated for us to make sure we didn’t pay more then a home was worth the two times we made an offer and that any additional reasonable requests we had were addressed. The home we ended up purchasing was not something we just settled for as one would think in a high pressure limited time relocation scenario, but a newly built gorgeous dream home with beautiful architecture inside that people ooh and ah over and has the latest energy efficiency technology. We owe it all to Shannon Foster-Boline.
Kimberly & Lewis Terry, Buyer
Being first-time purchasers, we knew very little about the home buying process. Shannon not only provided us with information but also answered our questions thoroughly so that we were able to make informed decisions. She kept in contact with us throughout the process, updating us on negotiations, contract details, inspections, etc. Shannon treated us as though we were her top priority at all times. Without a doubt, she provided excellent service. We will certainly recommend her to our friends and family!
Lindsay & Raymond Holmes DDS, Buyer
My husband and I were fortunate to meet Shannon when we were relocating to Tennessee. My husband was retiring and we were moving to the Knoxville area as part of our life dream after retirement. Since we were moving to Tennessee from Louisiana, we needed a Realtor who was willing to go the extra mile for us. We knew we wanted to live in Seymour, and among our requests was a mountain view with a large yard.
From the first conversation I had with Shannon, I was impressed with her professionalism and eagerness to work with us to find our perfect retirement home. Not only did she find it, it was house number 3 we looked at!
Shannon handled everything deftly from the contract negotiations through closing, and we felt like we were in good hands. We sold our house in Louisiana in a week, so the turn-around time was swift. Shannon made it seamless and easy. She was eager to help in any way and always made us feel like we were a priority. We actually enjoyed our home-buying experience and would absolutely recommend her to anyone considering making a home purchase.
Sally & Ronnie Portier, Buyer & Seller
We’ve nothing but great things to say about Shannon Foster. Buying a home from 2600 miles away was a huge source of stress for us and Shannon did everything in her power to make us feel at ease and make up for the distance. She is knowledgeable about the entire Knoxville area. She went above and beyond the call of duty for us every step of the way- meeting with us late after hours to tour a home and checking on our house after a storm after we closed and before we arrived in Knoxville. Shannon really cares about making sure her clients are happy and wants to make sure they find the right home. She is highly recommended for anyone looking to buy a home in Knoxville and she’ll be the first person we call when we are ready to “upgrade”. Thanks so much Shannon!
Sara Frazier, DVM & Craig Frazier, Buyer
Shannon was simply wonderful. She was enthusiastic, professional, patient, and knowledgeable. Right from the start she took time to understand exactly what I was looking for. After she showed me a few houses, she offered to do a preview before taking me to see more homes, thereby saving me a huge amount of time as I have a very busy work schedule. We looked at the houses she though would fit me and indeed I was able to find a great home in less than 2 months! She continued to be very helpful through the process of home inspection, contract negotiation, loan application, and closing. I felt that Shannon always had my best interest in mind and gave me her honest opinion. She made what could have been a tedious and long process a very stress-free experience for me.
Shannon is simply the best if you want someone who is upbeat, truly helpful, and has your interests at heart. My two dogs and I thank Shannon for our perfect home!!
Olya Smrkovski, DVM, Buyer
Patient and accommodating are the 2 words that come to mind when I think about my family’s experience with Shannon. We have moved over 6 times with the last being to Knoxville, Shannon outshines our past experiences. She was readily available to show houses and patiently helped as we visited over 40 homes until we found the one that fit our (ever changing) needs/wants. In addition, the technology available through Wallace & Wallace helped us narrow our search quicker without wasting time visiting homes that did not fit our needs.
I recommend Shannon to anyone moving to Knoxville or the surrounding areas, she is one of the best.”
Michael & Beth Yobe, Buyer
I want to take the opportunity to tell people how lucky we were to find someone like Shannon Foster as our realtor in Knoxville. My partner Sophy and I moved here in September 2011 from NYC after accepting a job at UTK. As we were getting closer to the moving date, the people at UTK vet school recommended we talk to Shannon Foster about finding a place to live. So we sent her an email and she got back to us immediately. We asked her to look up some properties that were for rent since we didn’t know the city and didn’t want to rush any buying decisions. She moved heaven and earth before we got there to find as many nice rentals in all different sides of town so that we would have a good idea of what was out there. Little did we know she didn’t even specialize in rentals, but she made it seem that’s all she did! She took us all around town, from one house to the Other and picked up immediately what our likes and dislikes were. She took her time to know us so that even if we were to rent, we would feel we were moving into a home. By the end of day one she took us to see the house we currently own now. The idea was to talk to the owners to see if they would rent it but she knew we would love it, and we did!
When it came time to talk mortgage business not only did we have no idea what to expect as new home owners but we felt we were not even qualified. Shannon pointed us to a GREAT mortgage broker that even took us to our first UTK game when we moved here! She held our hand through the ENTIRE process and I am not kidding. We had to return to NYC pretty much immediately after getting our loan approved which meant she was going to have to help us get through the rest of this entire process! From our point of view buying a house was so easy! But we are very conscious that it was all because she was here to make sure we were getting what was fair. She was here with the inspector, when they appraised the house, final walk through, every step of the way and always keeping us informed. She was professional, efficient and organized which we very much appreciate. I think there was another offer for the house that we (thankfully!!) didn’t even know about because Shannon was the one taking on the stress of it.
We feel blessed to have found such a wonderful home but we could have never done it without Shannon and her amazing disposition. She is the “can do” attitude you need to find the house of your dreams! Thank you so much to Shannon and her team, we LOVE our home!

Late in 2010, I decided that I wanted to find an alternative to my cookie-cutter condominium in West Knoxville. I wanted a home that was reasonably priced but had good character. Someplace I could see myself retiring in one day in the distant future. I spoke with Shannon Foster about this goal, and she asked me some very pointed questions and began to introduce me to the wonderful homes in transitional areas of downtown Knoxville. These beautiful homes have wonderful mixes of many terrific attributes. Each has unique qualities which make them very endearing. Each is relatively old, but due to a great deal of effort by previous owners they are also often updated with new wiring, heating and air and appliances. Many are surprisingly well priced.
Shannon very patiently guided me through a months-long process of narrowing down her understanding of my needs until ultimately we found a very charming home in the North Broadway neighborhoods. She has been a great resource in representing my interests where I may not be as knowledgeable, and she has helped keep me optimistic about the whole process when I became frustrated.
Shannon brings a unique arsenal of charm, patience, savvy and creativity to the whole home-buying process. I would most heartily recommend her to anyone looking for a new home.
Vania Smrkovski, Buyer
My wife and I first met Shannon when we viewed one of her listed properties in early 2010. Things didn’t work out as planned so we had to put the house hunting on hold for a few months. When we were ready to start eagerly looking for our new home in late 2010, we decided to work with Shannon because she was very personable and professional.
I couldn’t ask for a more patient and hard working person to work with. I spent 7 years building custom homes for other people, so I was very set on what I wanted in a home. After searching for an entire year, we finally found what we were looking for. Shannon was there every step of the way on our long journey for our new home.
She set up everything needed with all the aspects of buying a home and we didn’t have to worry about anything.
I have worked with other Realtors in the past and I can say that Shannon is by far the most hard working, pleasant person you could ever ask for whether you are looking to either buy or sell a home.
Doug & Mary Arsenault, Buyer
A friend of Shannon’s recommended her to me. I am so thankful to her for that. I was selling my house, and had met with another realtor, who made me feel very self conscious. Shannon was great from the moment I met with her. She had a very positive attitude and made feel comfortable about listing my house with her. Once we received an offer, she did a wonderful job walking me through the negotiating and closing processes. Whether you are buying or selling, Shannon will look out for your best interest. She is very professional, organized, and conscientious.
Beth Reed, Seller
I would like to give my highest recommendation to Shannon Foster of Coldwell Banker, Wallace & Wallace Realty. She took over from another agent that had married and moved away when the economy was beginning to take a real turn for the worse. Shannon was tireless in her effort to market our home and used every available means to create traffic through the property. We were extremely happy that she went the extra mile for us on several occassions as we were out of state most of the time. Shannon arranged for lawn mowing and landscaping as well as securing the contractors to do the repairs needed to pass the rigid final FHA inspection. We are very grateful and would not hesitate to use her services in the future.
Tom Brain, Managing Director, The CIG Network, LLC, Seller
I purchased a home back in April with Shannon acting as my agent. I wasn’t very sure what I was getting into at first, especially since it was right at the end of the First-Time Homebuyer tax credit period; but when the Coldwell Banker website put me in touch with Shannon, she was helpful right from the start.
After I had done my homework on the real estate listing sites and found some homes I was interested in viewing, Shannon always seemed to be able to fit me in her schedule where it was convenient for me. She was also interested in what I wanted, not just selling the house; after each viewing she would ask me what I liked and didn’t so that she could find other possibilities for me. There was even one occasion when we were not scheduled to view a house we passed, but she immediately made the appropriate phone calls to get us in- good thing, because that was the house I purchased.
During the closing process, she was always willing to take time to explain what was going on, what and why she needed documents, even pay a visit to the basement after the inspection to find the listed issues. And once again, when the bank was able to close early, she immediately found the time to make it happen.
If you’re a homebuyer with lots of questions (and even a little nervous- it’s a big decision), Shannon will do an excellent job of helping you through the process. She doesn’t look at it as “selling you a home”- she builds a relationship with her clients.
Jonathan Humber, Buyer
We recently purchased a foreclosed home with the assistance of Shannon Foster as our real estate agent. Our case was an especially complicated one, and without Shannon’s experience and propensity to stay on top of the little things to keep them moving, I don’t think we would have a good outcome.
We found Shannon to be personable, easy to work with, and professional. She went above and beyond our expectations as a realtor. We highly recommend her.
