Your Smoky Mountain Real Estate Experts


I’m Deborah Korlin, owner and Principal Broker of CENTURY 21 MVP in Sevierville, Tennessee.

I have been involved in real estate for most of my adult life, and in 2004 I started my career as a full-time professional Realtor. I have helped many hundreds of clients buy and sell real estate in the greater Smoky Mountain area of East Tennessee.

My husband Mike and I bought Century 21 MVP in 2008 and we have since grown it to almost 50 Agents. Our office has received numerous awards and was Tennessee’s highest ranked individual Century 21 office by production with over 500 closings each in both 2021 and 2022.

My specialty is representing buyers and sellers of fine homes and estates, investment cabins and new construction as well as representing developers and entire resorts.

I work closely with my personal team which consists of our son Greg and our daughters Amber and Alexandra as well as our transaction coordinator Veronica Powell.

When I am not working with my clients, I enjoy life on our 40-acre farm near Douglas Lake in Sevier County with my husband Mike, our horses and our Swiss Shepherd dog Coda.
