I grew up in Nashville attending public school and also Castle Heights Military Academy in Lebanon TN. After high school, I came to Cookeville to attend Tennessee Tech University. After living in Atlanta, East Tennessee and Southwest Virginia, I made the decision so many of my customers have–to live in Cookeville! The community left an impression that lasted long after I graduated and I wanted to come back here to raise my family. A major factor influencing my to decision to live in Cookeville was the climate and the access to so many recreational areas including Big South Fork, Center Hill, Dale Hollow and Cordell Hull lakes. I also recognized that Cookeville is full of opportunities to get involved with school, church, community, and civic organizations. I am convinced that my decision to live in Cookeville was one of the best I have made. I also met my wife of 21 years here and she is a NATIVE of Cookeville!
My friends know me as a Corvair buff– I have driven Corvairs for over 30 years. Although I have now scaled back from over ten Corvairs to one ‘66 convertible, I have a son and grandson who share my love for Corvairs. But my interests aren’t limited to cars—I enjoy camping, fishing, hiking and biking, too.
Now in my 25th year at American Way, real estate is a passion that has been extremely rewarding to me and my family. We have made lifetime friends through this vocation. In 1999, my wife joined me at American Way and our partnership has been extremely beneficial to us and to our customers. It is my personal goal to bring friendly and professional service to every transaction with my customers.
I sincerely hope to meet you and share my enthusiasm for Cookeville and the Upper Cumberland!
This is the second time that I have worked with Mac Evans and I have only one regret – I wish that I had known him many years earlier so I could have used his services more!
Mac & Karen, You both have the patience and grace of saints, for which I am very grateful. Many thanks for helping me to become a homeowner.
Over a period of quite a few years Mac Evans has helped us buy and sell residential properties seven times! Every single time, he made no promises that he could not keep, produced more than we expected, and, by listening carefully, seemed to know better than we did what we were looking for in our new purchases. Moreover, Mac (and later, Mac and Karen) are scrupulously honest and straightforward. They repeatedly impressed us with their knowledge and mastery of the Cookeville/Putnam County market. Beyond that, they have mutually positive relationships with lenders and real estate attorneys in the area, delivering swift and accurate results at closings. Mac and Karen never wasted our time but also excelled at soothing any of our anxieties as buyer or sellers. Our latest experience? Our house sold within the first four days of the MLS listing!

My husband and I worked with Mac and Karen in finding a home in a market that was largely picked over because we were looking at the end of the Spring/Summer season of brisk sales. We were very particular about what we wanted and even considered building a house. But when we described what we wanted to build and a home that met that criteria opened on the market, Mac suggested it immediately and we found our “dream” home. Mac treated us as if we were high end clients and he is amazing in how fast he will return an email or phone call, even when he is on vacation. We were so pleased to have his years of experience and depth of knowledge of the market in Cookeville in order to meet our wish list.

Mac and Beverly listed our home in April, 2014. They quickly scheduled an open house and we had several showings, had a contract and were closed within four months. We are very pleased, they did a fine job, nice work. A perfect 10.

I have worked with Mac Evans before and wanted him to market my house. He is on time, positive, honest and reliable. I have recommended him to two other owners. Mac Evans is the best.
Mac and Karen Evans are a fantastic, ethical, professional, and hard working team. I have had several real-estate dealings with them. They sold my condo, my home, a medical office building, and a commercial property on the West End. They know their stuff! Whether a straight forward or a complicated transaction, they represented my interests with integrity. I highly recommend Mac and Karen. I would certainly use them again and again!
One year ago on Halloween, I closed on my home on Inglewood Drive thanks to the hard work of Mac and Karen Evans who were “oh sooo patient” with me.
Thanks. I am enjoying my new home! Wanted to thank you both once again for putting up with me during the house hunt!
Hope all is well with you!!!! Happy Halloween!!!!
I’m not a long time resident of Cookeville, but almost 8 years ago we were looking to relocate to this beautiful city. A friend suggested that we talk to Mac Evans, and we were truly happy we did. Mac worked diligently to find us a lot and a builder we could work with to build our lovely home. He did a real professional job for us, and I have referred him to a couple of good friends of mine, who are very happy with him too. When I’m ready to sell my home, I won’t hesitate to work with Mac Evans again.
In July of 2013, my wife and I listed our home at 1080 Sugartree Pointe with Karen and Mac Evans, realtors at American Way Realty, in Cookeville TN. Having used Mac and Karen on a previous sale, we knew we would get excellent service. It turned out better than expected. Our first showing brought an offer that eventually closed in late August. Not only a fast sale, but a closing that happened without any problems. All paperwork and the assistance we needed were provided promptly. Professionalism and honesty were what we appreciated most.

When my mother and I decided to combine households we thought it would take a long time to both find the right home to share as well as for each of us to sell our existing homes. We knew that finding a home with both separate and common living areas might be difficult. Mac found the perfect property almost immediately. He, Karen, and Beverly also worked diligently to find the right buyers for our homes. In less than six months (record time) we found the right house and sold both of our homes.
When my husband and I decided it was time for us to buy our first home, we were clueless about the process. We had looked at a couple of houses but were getting agitated by the agent’s insistence that we make an offer. When we found Mac & Karen Evans we knew we wanted to stick with them! They never pushed us to make an offer, were patient with all my questions and completely helped us through the entire process. Thanks to Mac and Karen, my husband and I now own the house our children will forever call home! We have since sent a friend to them and would again.
