Brian Copeland runs the Nashville And Beyond Team alongside his brother, Brad, sister-in-law, Molly, two dear friends from his music industry days, Sarah and Belinda, and three administrative support team members. Brian was the 2011 Nashville REALTOR® of the Year. In 2014, he was named one of Inman News‘ 100 Most Influential Real Estate Leaders in America. Most recently, he was the 2017 President of Tennessee REALTORS®. In 2016, Brian, a Golden R President’s Circle Hall of Fame RPAC investor, served on numerous committees, and currently serves on Commitment to Excellence. He founded one of the largest technology camps in the country, attracting more than 1,500 real estate professionals from more than 30 states. 2017 marks the eighth annual event. Brian has appeared on numerous real estate television shows for HGTV and The Learning Channel. He says his favorite show so far was a one-time show he co-hosted called “The Top 25 House Hunting Tips,” which aired in 2009. However, some of his other episodes of “Good Buy, Bad Buy,” “House Hunters,” and “Flip That House” still air today. Brian’s roots are in East Tennessee where he grew up in Clinton. His mom, dad, and brother all recently moved to Nashville to be closer as a family, but they were a Southern Gospel singing group from as far back as he can remember. The family toured the hills of East Tennessee with a guitar, piano, and four-part harmony. He later went to Carson-Newman University, where he started more formal training in music and communications. He completed his master’s degree at The University of Tennessee, Knoxville. In the late 1990’s, Brian accepted a job in Nashville’s music industry to later transition into the real estate field in 2005. Brian says he loves being a REALTOR® because it’s one of the truest portals into community service and gratitude. As a board member for Greenways for Nashville and Metro Nashville’s Farmers Market Commission, he is a true advocate for neighborhood issues and his city’s infrastructure. He and his spouse, Greg, founded one of the only food pantries in North Nashville, feeding more than 175 families each month. In 2014, the pantry won the Mary Catherine Strobel Volunteer of the Year Award. They live on a farm in Madison with their two children, Micah (6) and Esther (3).
