Amy Schlosser


Greetings from Skyway Realty! I’m so glad you decided to learn more about me.
My name is Amy Schlosser and I have been a residential realtor for the past 23 years and now a Principal Broker.
I grew up in a small town of DePere, Wisconsin. (Go Pack Go!) I received a bachelor of science degree with majors in philosophy and sociology in the early 90s. In the late 90s I began working at my sister and brother-in-law’s real estate firm as their administrative assistant.
In 2000, my family and I relocated to Knoxville, where I obtained my real estate license and have been proudly serving buyers and sellers ever since. I have two adult sons that mean the world to me along with their beautiful wives and a brand new grandson!
I have many years experience in new construction sales and the last couple of years have had the pleasure of working on a major real estate development with an amazing group of people here in Tellico Plains.
Tellico Plains is a special place that holds many great memories for myself and many people.  Whether it’s camping or hiking at Indian Boundary, Tellico Plains has a lot to offer. The town is filled with friendly people who are passionate about their town, and they are always willing to share stories of its history.
If you are considering a vacation home or your forever home, we are here to help!

David Fankhauser

Sales Associate

David Fankhauser, most often called ‘Dave’ – because who can pronounce his Swiss-German last name? – is a 20 year Tellico Plains resident who moved here to begin a new adventure in this beautiful mountain community with three generations of his family.


Dave has been active in Tellico Plains’ development from the very first day by purchasing and rehabbing old, worn-out buildings to good-as -new. Since Day One, he’s been intentional on how best to balance the beauty of this rural area while planning for sensible growth; and most of all, how to keep Tellico Plains a home for all, preserving its core of family values and serenity.


Dave listens.  Generations of both locals and newcomers want Tellico Plains to remain a place where everyone waves to each other.  Whether you’re “kin” or not, you are still “family;” it’s the relationships that count.


As a Real Estate agent, Dave understands that helping buyers and sellers conduct an honest transaction is one of the most important transitions of life. He knows construction, development, land use, and also how bulldozers and track-hoes can create beauty in harmony with the environment.  He knows how to listen to what your dream is too.


Dave and his wife Sandy live close to family, very quietly on a small farm that’s practically a natural park. Before arriving in Tellico Plains, they lived in big cities like Chicago, Columbus, Miami and Orlando. Prior to moving to Tennessee, climbing the corporate ladder, chasing and creating money was their life. Finding Tellico Plains truly was a God-thing; it’s probably a story much like yours, and it’s a miracle to be here!

Osvaldo Ferrer

Sales Associate

Osvaldo Ferrer, or what he likes to be called “OZZY”, is somewhat of a passionate, non-stop, Swiss knife!

He has a 20+ year background in residential mortgage financing. He is currently a licensed MLO (Mortgage Loan Originator) in the state of Florida, where he resided for the last 13 years. He is currently pursuing licenses in other states, Tennessee to start with, Alabama, North Carolina, Georgia and New Jersey.

Having experienced the real estate purchase and sales process first hand through the financing aspect of the transaction, he is now a licensed realtor both in Florida and Tennessee. Ozzy decided to pursue becoming a realtor here in Tellico Plains after falling in love (as he describes) with Tellico Plains, its people, and Skyway Realty. He loves walking the lands and discovering every nook and cranny of East Tennessee.

He is also a licensed Insurance Agent in TN & FL. Ozzy believes that an investment as large as a house or land ought to be protected after such sacrifice from all parties involved to make it happen. “You have to take care, protect, and fight for what you work so hard and love” is one of his life’s philosophies.

And if that wasn’t enough, Ozzy spends some 4-6 weeks a year in supporting “Jacob’s Well”, a Christian ministry here in Tellico Plains that educates people in how to support themselves in their own homestead. He enjoys serving as a translator (habla Español), teaching Bible classes through Zoom, trying to teach himself ancient Hebrew and Greek through YouTube, working on his own homestead, but most of all, enjoying his family time with his wife Natalie, baby girl Eliora, and two dogs.

If more of a fast-pace is your style, Ozzy is the right agent for you.

Jenny Blair

Office Administrator

Jenny Blair is the new Office Administrator for Skyway Realty. She comes to us from Denso, a global operations company, after 21 years of employment. She has lived in Madisonville, Tennessee, her whole life and is a true East Tennessee girl –
Jenny is married to her wonderful husband (who is a great cook!) and has five children — four of which are boys — so her house has a revolving door! She loves spending time with her family, making new memories everyday. Most of those memories involve their dog, Zena! Jenny loves bringing Zena to Tellico Plains to enjoy the outdoors. Their favorite spot is Iron Works Grille right on the Tellico River, so Zena can splash and play and make new friends.
Jenny grew up on a farm and remembers the “simple life, before cell phones and the internet.” She recalls square dancing in downtown Tellico Plains and is excited to be spending more time in the area. Her mother sold real estate when Jenny was a teenager, so Jenny is familiar with the fast-paced and dynamic approach of the real estate world.  She’s the smiling voice you hear when you call!
Christine Bonham

Photographer & Media Specialist

Hi! I’m  a graduate of Florida State University with a degree in Marketing and a minor in Advertising. I took that degree to get my dream job – staying home to homeschool my three children. Consequently, I took a ton of pictures documenting homeschool field trips and debate tournaments and just daily life.

After my kids graduated I looked for an excuse to keep my creative juices flowing and camera in hand. The opportunity arose to assist Skyway Realty with the photography and video of homes and land. Currently, I use my camera and drone to help tell the stories of Tellico Plains, the mountains, woods, and the abundance of dream properties in area. When I’m not behind the lens, I’m usually refinishing antiques, traveling the world with my  husband Jon, painting, or making sure my bees are happy honey makers.
