Cookeville is my home—I was raised here from a young age. After graduating from TTU with a degree in Marketing, like many graduates, I was unsure what I wanted to do. As the daughter of a Contractor and a Real Estate Broker, I watched this area develop and change; I had seen homes built, sold, and subdivisions grow.  So, I decided to follow in my mother’s footsteps and become a Realtor® and I’m glad I did. I enjoy working with people and find such satisfaction in knowing I have helped someone buy their first home or sell their home.

I started Real Estate in April 2002. For 13 years, I worked as an Affiliate Broker for First Realty Company in Cookeville and in April 2015, I joined my mother in opening our new firm Gaw-Bernhardt and Associates. Now I have the pleasure of working with my mother, Brenda Gaw, and our Associate, Julie Callahan. Together with our combined experience of over 50 years, we look forward to working with you to meet your needs—whether you are buying or selling your home, looking for commercial property or acreage.
