Rob Bearden

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 numerous real estate-related areas, including real estate lending, 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 Fridrich & Clark Realty. Together they live in Green Hills where they are raising their three boys who attend Ensworth and MBA.

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 a board member with the Tennessee Chapter of the American Cancer Society and the Blake McMeans Foundation. Rob is actively involved with Habitat for Humanity and Montgomery Bell Academy. He and Shelly attend Woodmont Christian Church.

Client Testimonials

“We cannot recommend the Bearden Team enough. For years we considered making a move, but the process seemed so daunting and complicated in today’s market. In a realtor, you need a seasoned professional who has the network, connections and insight into the market as well as a team that takes the stress off of you. The Bearden team is every bit of this and so much more. They were so knowledgeable, diligent, responsive and organized. We felt like their only client which we know was far from the case. We highly recommend working with them, you will not be disappointed!” – Beverly and Jonathan Conley

“We cannot possibly thank Shelly, Rob & the whole Bearden team for everything they have done for us during the home search and buying process! From the first introductory call with Shelly, it was clear we were in great hands. She was incredibly attentive and knowledgeable and made sure to ask us all the right questions in order to figure out what we were looking for. Moving to Nashville from out of state, we definitely needed extra guidance on areas/ communities and they were very patient and definitely helped steer us in the right direction. We have worked with realtors in the past and didn’t even know this caliber of service existed in the field! Shelly and Rob are truly next level – super professional and communicative, genuinely helpful and not pushy, kind hearted and reliable. We know they have gone way above and beyond what their job is supposed to provide and we’re so appreciative of everything they have done for us as first time home buyers. Also their entire team, Heather, Stephanie, everyone has been a 10/10. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you Bearden’s! We not only bought our first home but we also gained friends in the process.“ – Judi and Craig Agnello
