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.
