Upon entering our real estate office in Downtown Murphy, you will see the original 1856 deed to the McNabb Family Farm. Lawrence McNabb's third Great-Grandfather Edmond walked into these mountains at the age of 16 with his little sister, Anice. Our family has deep roots and a rich history in these mountains. Lawrence has paired his love for these mountains with his extensive travels, bringing you an unparalleled experience.

Your Real Estate Specialist for the Tri-State Mountains


The McNabb lineage has been rooted deeply in these mountains since the early 1800’s. It would be an understatement for one to say Lawrence’s heart is tied to these Smokey Mountains. Having been blessed with loving parents who exposed him to the majority of our great country over his childhood, he was fortunate enough to have witnessed the true beauty of the rest of the country… but the mountains of Appalachia always called him back. Ironically, thanks to a chance meeting, he married a “Buckeye” who was visiting this beautiful area and, as they say, the rest is history.

“Fortunately life has blessed me with my travels. Having seen the beautiful regions of our country enables me to understand where people are coming from and what properties may suit their interests. I want folks to see what I see here…a serenity that is untouched. Life here in these mountains is slow and easy…like my Scottish and Irish ancestors before me, that’s why I love these mountains so.”
