Beyond the exceptional service given to Buyers and Sellers, Lakeside Real Estate Group has not forgotten the people who have made them so successful for over 25 years, the residents of Tellico Village.

Community involvement is a cornerstone of our company. The majority of our agents live and play in Tellico Village and surrounding neighborhoods, and community pride rides high with us. And because we do live here, our agents offer the best insight in finding the Tellico Lake neighborhood and home that is perfect for our client’s lifestyle.

The Tennessee Volunteer spirit is a communal thread in our company, binding us more closely to our community and the organizations that provide needed services throughout the area. Lakeside’s owner, Michael Ruppert Jr. and our agents know the importance of involvement and participation of both time and monetary sponsorship to support these groups.

Since taking over the helm of Lakeside in 2010, Ruppert has been proud to support many worthy causes, including the Smoky Mountain Service Dogs which provides and trains service dogs for our Military Veterans, the Public Library at Tellico Village, The Tellico Village Volunteer Fire Department, the First Baptist Church of Tellico Village, the Tellico Village Community Church, the Tellico Village Property Owners Association, Stay in Tellico which helps transition aging Tellico Village residents from their homes to assisted living so that they may stay in their beloved community and providing free office space to The Loudon County Clerks Office so that Tellico Village residents have easy access to that office’s services.

Lakeside is ever conscious of our company’s civic responsibility to this area, and through our success as the real estate market continues to improve we are able to give ever more back. Community service and volunteerism strengthens the community and the people who live in it, and that is an investment that Lakeside Real Estate Group is proud make.
