“Choosing to enter the real estate industry is an easy decision for some, especially when a booming market hits,” Dixon said. “However, to become a Realtor and set yourself apart from the crowd, there are a few choice words one must live by: honesty, professionalism, loyalty, ethics and, most importantly, humility. I’m honored to be chosen as this year’s Tennessee Realtor of the Year.”
Dixon has been a member of TAR for 32 years. She serves as president of the Eastern Middle Tennessee Association of Realtors, a position she has held in that organization a total of three times.
Dixon was also elected by her peers to serve as the 2005-06 TAR Division 2 Vice President, has sat on the state board of directors seventeen times since 1991, and has chaired multiple state committees.
She also served Tennessee on the National Association of Realtors board of directors from 2007 to 2010. Dixon is very active in politics, participating in all TAR Hill Visits since 1987 and serving as vice chairperson, chairperson and treasurer for the Realtor Political Action Committee in 2006, 2007 and 2009.
In addition to her professional experience, she is a member of the Mt. Juliet/West Wilson County Chamber of Commerce; supporter of the Fraternal Order of Police, #71 Sam Houston Lodge; member of the Wilson County Planning Commission since 2003; and an active member of the Hermitage Church of God, serving on their board of directors since 1995.
Of her community involvement, Dixon commented, “Being a Realtor doesn’t stop at your client list. I don’t sell houses; I sell homes. And these homes are occupied by individuals that make up my community. I feel it an obligation and an honor to help within my community.
