A native Nashvillian, Rob Bearden attended Montgomery Bell Academy and graduated from Belmont University with a BS in Psychology. Rob came to the real estate business after a 14 year career in banking where he worked for Renasant Bank (formerly Capital Bank & Trust) in Nashville. During his time in banking, Rob specialized in real estate-related areas, including property valuation and bank-owned properties. During the last recession, he managed and sold hundreds of REO properties on behalf of the bank. Using the knowledge gained from conducting countless short sales and foreclosures, Rob became an appraisal specialist in the bank’s credit department.
In 2019 Rob brought this experience to the real estate industry, where he joined his wife, Shelly Bearden, a broker at Worth Properties. Together they live in Forest Hills where they are raising their three boys, one dog, two gerbils, one hermit crab, and one still-missing pet snake.
Rob enjoys running and hiking at Radnor Lake, coaching youth sports, and cheering on his favorite sports teams, the Nashville Predators, Georgia Bulldogs, and Tennessee Titans. He is actively involved with Habitat for Humanity, Percy Priest Elementary PTO, and Montgomery Bell Academy. He and Shelly attend Woodmont Christian Church.
