David Fankhauser

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.

Christine Bonham

Photographer

Christine Bonham has made Tellico Plains home these last 18 or so years. A graduate of Florida State University with a degree in Marketing, Christine took that degree to get her dream job – staying home to homeschool her three children.

 

Documenting 18+ years of homeschooling field trips, cross country road trips, speech & debate tournaments, and just everyday life, she took pictures constantly.

 

After her kids graduated she looked for any excuse to keep her creative juices flowing and her camera in hand. The opportunity arose to assist Skyway Realty with the photography and video of homes and land. These days, she uses her camera to help tell the stories of Tellico Plains, the mountains, woods, and the abundance of dream properties in area. When she’s not behind the lens, she can be found refinishing antiques, traveling with her husband Jon, painting, or making sure her bees are happy honey makers.

Since most of Christine’s work requires her to be out of the office, you might catch her out and about capturing the beauty of some of East Tennessee’s finest properties, friends and family, or spectacular scenery.
