Johnathan Forester

Commercial Broker, Auctioneer

As Principal Broker of the BROKERS REALTY (Commercial Division), Johnathan also serves as Primary Auctioneer of the Auction Division. Unique to the Tri-Cities region, this division is the only auction company in East Tennessee and Southwest Virginia that specializes in commercial, industrial, and investment properties.

As a life-long resident of East Tennessee, I have worked in the real estate industry as a broker, agent, and auctioneer for nearly a decade. I began my career as an Auctioneer at East Tennessee Development and Auction Company after attending Mendenhall Auction School in North Carolina and Nashville Auction School in Tennessee.

I found myself transitioned into the Principal Broker role of TCI Group Jerry Petzolt Agency in Johnson City. After several rewarding years at TCI Group, I founded The Brokers Realty & Auction, Inc in 2014 with a focus on Commercial Real Estate & Auctions, over time adding 5 auctioneers and over a dozen of the best Residential agents in our area.

I'm very proud of what our team has accomplished in such a short period of time & look forward to a limitless potential for growth & learning in this Industry I love so much.
