Doug Betty - Founder/Director
TNREIA established 2012

I am a dedicated and passionate REALTOR® who combines my love for the industry with my desire to help others. I understand the importance of providing exceptional customer care and guidance to my clients. I have a degree in business management and over 20 years of experience in sales and management.

As an active agent in Nashville, I represents both buyers and sellers on a day-to-day basis. I bring a strategic yet personable approach to the home buying and selling process, leveraging my years of experience to ensure my clients obtain the best value for their dream home or achieve a smooth and stress-free sale.

My expertise extends beyond traditional real estate transactions. I have a proven track record of working with investors, helping them grow their portfolios, maximize profits from house flips, and identify the best use for their investment properties. My background in business gives me a unique perspective and the ability to work effectively with professionals.

In addition to my role as a Real Estate Broker, I am also a Co-Owner of Oyster Real Estate Advisors, Co-Owner of TNREIA (TN Real Estate Investors Association), Co-Founder of Middle TN Investors and Wholesalers Network, and Co-Founder of Corkscrews and Contracts Real Estate Podcast. 

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with friends, cooking, exercising, traveling, and exploring all the exciting opportunities Nashville has to offer.

With me as your REALTOR®, you can trust that you will receive exceptional service, expert guidance, and a true advocate throughout the home buying or selling process.


Artist, entrepreneur, fix-and-flips and wholesaling.  Prior to real estate, I was an actor in Los Angeles, California and owner of Sumetra Media, a web based audio production house that focused on supporting distance learning companies.

I love my church community and previously served as President of the Board of Trustees at Unity of Nashville.  Along with networking and helping others achieve their investment dreams, I am currently working as Concrete Sales Director for Southern Legacy Companies.  Along with Jennifer Hamrick, I am also Co-Founder of the Middle TN Investors and Wholesalers Network, as well as the Corkscrews and Contracts Real Estate Podcast.  My hobbies include watching Nashville hockey and football, going to country music concerts, camping, cooking, and flipping houses with my Mom, Beverly Love.


I began a career in real estate over 30 years ago when I unwittingly bought my first 'investment' property -a one acre lot in Bon Aqua, TN with a mobile home. Who knew it would turn into an obsession for Real Estate? I continue today acquiring properties and building a residential and commercial portfolio. 

I have been involved in many aspects of the residential and commercial real estate business, including property management, leasing, land sales, assembling urban parcels, due diligence and investment real estate.

I have never been as excited by the opportunities in the real estate market as I am today. Both passive investors and investors who actually want to do the work such as rehab, management and so on are finding great returns at today's prices.

My specialties are wholesaling real estate, managing real estate, purchasing real estate without banks, self-directed IRA investing, passive real estate investing, & turn key rentals.


My husband, Doug, and I are long-term buy-and-hold real estate investors, investing in both commercial and residential properties in and around Middle Tennessee and East Tennessee. We truly enjoy our real estate investment business, in part because we learn something new everyday through the many people we meet. Tennessee is a great place to invest, and we're so glad to be here!
