Becky is co-founder and Managing Broker of Scout Realtor Group. A hometown girl at heart, Becky had several opportunities to relocate away from Chattanooga, but says no offer ever topped staying close to family. A local public school graduate (ERHS class of ’92), Becky’s past work experiences include restaurateur, veterinarian assistant, insurance, and real estate.


Her real estate career began in 1997, when she began working with a development group based in Los Angeles. It was the combination of New Urbanism and interest in land planning that caused Becky to get hooked on real estate development. "There is something rather magical about envisioning a neighborhood or a community and watching it come to life from the ground up," she has shared.

After spending a few years working in the world of mixed-use development around the country, Becky's real estate path took a turn to residential development and sales. In 2001, she went to work for RealtyCenter, at the time Chattanooga’s largest independently owned real estate company, where she ascended through the ranks to managing the first New Homes Sales Division in Chattanooga. In 2004, she earned her Broker’s license and founded Builder Realty Group with partners until leaving in 2007 to join a general brokerage firm when the real estate industry as a whole was experiencing a significant downturn.

Becky's passion for creating communities and mixed-use communities goes hand in hand with helping buyers find their perfect home as Becky attends most regional planning meetings and keeps an ear to the ground. In the fast-paced world of real estate, often times the perfect development is still on the drawing board or right around the corner. Conversely, she uses the same knowledge to best position properties for sale, taking advantage of timing to reach the goals of her clients. When a new development is in the planning stages, a seller may need to consider the ramifications of selling now or later. This is where Becky focuses her energies with clients - personalized marketing strategies.

"Being new to Chattanooga, Becky was amazing at helping us think through important factors in finding a location, such as schools, local activities, restaurants...etc. She was not shy in challenging us to think through the long term investment to ensure we were making the right decision for our family. Her local knowledge of the market and area was a bright spot during a stressful time!"
