Lilly Rayson

My name is Lilly Rayson and I love being a Realtor®. I am a 1987 graduate of The University of Tennessee, Knoxville with a BS in Business Management. I worked successfully for 22 years as an Account Representative in the Pressure Sensitive Label, Business Forms and Promotional Products industry. Ned Rayson is my husband and business partner. We married in 1997 and started working together in the Business Forms and Promotional Products industry in 2001. In 2003 we purchased a wholesale engine parts distribution company. Ned ran the parts Distribution Company and I continued as an outside sales representative until a year after our son was born.

Together we always enjoyed homes. We added a major addition to our first home and then built two custom lake homes, and have completed major Master Bath and Kitchen remodels. In 2008 I decided to become a Realtor®. It has been a wonderful choice. In my first full year as a Realtor®, I was Weichert Realtors® Rookie of the year for Tennessee, Kentucky and Alabama. I’m also a Knoxville Area Association of Realtors® Award of Excellence multi-million dollar producer. I work with sellers, buyers and investors and I would love to work with you.

Ned Rayson

Hello, I’m Ned Rayson and I was born and raised in Knoxville, Tennessee. With the exception of a brief time living in the Western US, I have lived my whole life in West Knoxville and Loudon County. One of my great loves is playing guitar. While I said I was moving west for college I really went to play music. I quickly learned I was just good enough to be a starving musician. So I came back to Knoxville.

Upon returning to Knoxville, I spent fourteen years working in my family’s Hosiery business until the mill closed in 1983. After that I worked for PS Engineering, an avionics company that produces intercoms and audio selector panels for general aviation aircraft. My next position was as an account representative in the form, label and promotional products industry. In 2003 my wife Lilly and I purchased a Power Sports parts distribution business which I operated until I sold it in September of 2015.

I have always loved houses; buying, building, remodeling and yes, selling them. My personal experience includes a major house addition, several large remodeling projects and building two custom lake homes. When I sold the parts business it was only natural that I join Lilly as a Realtor®. I love working in a field that interest and excites me. Real Estate is that field. Anything I can do for or help you with, no matter how large or small, just let me know. I would love to be your Realtor®!
