Howdy, partner

New ground broken: Stallings a Coldwell Banker Wallace-Wallace partner with bros.

Claudia Stallings, new partner with Coldwell Banker Wallace & Wallace, Realtors, started with the company as an agent in 2004 after having her interest in real estate piqued by helping her parents find a home in Farragut in 2002.
Not one who specializes in the “hard sell” by her own admission, Claudia Stallings’ new career direction was sparked by trying to help her parents, Paul and Phylis Garrison.

“I started thinking I might be interested in real estate when my parents decided to move to Farragut in 2002,” said Stallings, recently named Coldwell Banker Wallace & Wallace, Realtors’ first female partner since the 1940s — and first partner outside the Wallace family — for a company started in 1936 by James A Wallace Sr. and his son, Charles A. Wallace.

“I started looking for houses for them. I found I thoroughly enjoyed the process,” added Stallings, who obtained her real estate license then was hired as a CBWW agent out of the Farragut office, 10815 Kingston Pike, in 2004. She was elevated to principal broker in 2010.
