Carrying on a family tradition, Roger M. Moore, Jr. founded R.M. Moore Real Estate in Knoxville, Tennessee in 1995 and opened an additional real estate office in Sevierville, Tennessee, in 2005.  Through first-rate customer service, in-depth understanding of the market and a cooperative team approach, the firm has grown more than 900% since its first year.

In January 2008, R.M. Moore Real Estate Company gained a national platform by affiliating with Sperry Van Ness, an Irvine, CA-based firm that shares Moore’s philosophy of putting the client first, treating people fairly and being aggressive in a positive way. The Sperry Van Ness platform offers resources to market local properties to a national audience of brokers, tenants and investors. The extensive resources offered are also leveraged to deliver industry-best advisory and consultancy services to clients.

The affiliation has helped to sustain the firm’s growth. In 2008, the firm ranked no. 3,453 on the Inc. 5000 list of Fastest Growing Private Companies in America and ranked 49th in the magazine’s list of the Top 50 Real Estate Companies in America.
