Originally from Delaware, Alexis King relocated to Sevierville, TN in 2012 after attending Drexel University in Philadelphia where she received her BS in Psychology, minor in English, and later her MS in Communication with a concentration in Public Relations. Upon moving to Tennessee, Alexis worked as a visual merchandising manager for J. Crew. After a year, she realized Sevierville just didn’t feel like home, and decided to make the move to nearby Knoxville. After moving into the Landings Riverfront Apartments she quickly learned of a job opportunity to work in their office as a Leasing Agent. Shortly after starting her employment with The Landings, Alexis was promoted to Assistant Community Manager. Two years passed and realizing she had a niche for property management, along with a desire to gain more experience in the real estate industry, Alexis accepted a position with local Terminus Real Estate in 2016. As their Property Manager, she handles a number of tasks dealing with just about everything including leasing, development, resident relations and retention, HOA management, coordination with maintenance and other vendors, as well as anything else that comes up during day-to-day operations.
Megan Noel grew up in a small town outside of Knoxville. She attended East Tennessee State University in Johnson City where she graduated with a bachelor’s in science in Psychology with a minor in Sociology. Megan spent the early part of her career working in hospitality and the restaurant business where she cultivated an unequivocal forte for unearthing greater capabilities in promotional marketing. After graduation, she accepted a manager in training program with Abercrombie & Fitch(A&F). In 2015, Megan and her husband broke new ground, relocating to Knoxville, TN where she accepted a store management position at the A&F store in the West Town Mall. Although she enjoyed her time in retail, Megan likes diving headfirst into solving complex problems and uncovering new possibilities, so she began her search for a new challenging opportunity. In September 2017, Megan began working as a Corporate Office Manager for Terminus. Megan has been quick to pick up on the ins and outs of the industry and continues to accept the opportunity to take on more responsibility as it arrives. Megan partakes in many areas of the company’s general operations with her main focus being financial bookkeeping. One of her favorite things about working for Terminus is that employees wear many hats, so she also helps manage all of the properties, performs walk through evaluations, participates in managing special projects, and many more exciting tasks.
A life-long Tennessee resident, Megan Gray (just like Megan Noel) grew up in a small town just outside of Knoxville. Megan graduated from Walters State in 2010 and then worked as a pharmacy technician for CVS Pharmacy for most of her adult life until coming to Terminus. Megan came to Terminus by way of Megan Noel, who also works in the office. When a position for a Project Manager opened up, she immediately thought of Megan Gray. Megan loves planning and organizing which makes her a perfect fit for her job. Megan helps manage all the properties owned by Terminus Real Estate. The biggest project currently is the works is of course the conversion of the Sterchi Lofts in condos, but day-to-day her projects and tasks vary whether it’s ordering supplies, paying invoices, communicating and overseeing jobs with the construction and maintenance crews, answering tenant questions, talking to and hiring vendors, and more. There is always something new to be done or handle but she says that’s what keeps her job exciting!
