Parks is proud to highlight an amazing agent from our East Nashville office, Mattie Cantrell!
Mattie has been a part of the Parks family since she got her license a little over a year ago. She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication from Fisk University and a Master of Education degree in Curriculum and Instruction with a focus in Elementary Education from Tennessee State University. Mattie specializes in education and guiding buyers and sellers through the real estate process.
Mattie has served as a community liaison and education leader for the past 16 years. Her interest in real estate began shortly after starting her career in education. As she began to influence the lives of many young people, she learned how home and community connect us all. Mattie’s expertise in coordinating, building partnerships, and her love for community make her a great resource during the real estate process. Her goals are to continue helping others reach their real estate goals and ultimately partner with stakeholders on developing communities with residential, commercial, and educational resources.
When asked why she chose to join the Parks Family of REALTORS®, Mattie stated, “The mission of Parks aligns with my values and mindset. The supportive culture, spirit of community, progressive track record, and the dedication to helping others live a magnificent life made Parks the agency for me.”
If Mattie could offer some tips to new agents, they would be to take advantage of the support you have around you and to always continue educating yourself. “I highly encourage new agents to reach out for support from their broker, mentor, other agents, and real estate groups. Stay educated with frequent training offerings through Parks, Ninja, and other various platforms to grow your business. Let everyone in your sphere know that you are available and ready to assist them as a resource in the real estate industry,” she stated.
In her spare time, Mattie enjoys reading, writing, shopping, and spending quality time with her family and friends. She also loves mentoring young people and serving with community and educational organizations. Fun fact: Mattie was the production assistant on the set of the Dixie Chicks "Wide Open Spaces" music video.
