Become Part of the Colonial Family
Colonial Properties Cabin and Resort Rentals is locally owned and operated by Ben Hughes and his family.
Ben and his wife Rachel reside in Sevierville with their three children; Caleb, Brady and Waverly.
After receiving his real estate education from Walters State Community College, Ben began his real estate career in 1998, becoming the youngest licensed real estate agent in the history of the Great Smoky Mountains Association of REALTORS. Throughout his career in real estate sales, Ben amassed an extensive collection of awards and accolades. With numerous multi-million dollar production years, Ben reached Gold and Silver production status 9 of the 10 years of his real estate career. He was also voted the #1 real estate agent in the area by the readers of the local newspaper, The Mountain Press.
In 2005, Ben set his sights on an ambitious goal, the opening of Colonial Properties Cabin and Resort Rentals. With his extensive knowledge of the local real estate market and studies in property management, Ben set out to open the best vacation rental management firm in the Great Smoky Mountains. In June of 2005, Colonial Properties Cabin and Resort Rentals opened with only 2 vacation rentals on their program. Since that time, Colonial Properties has grown to become one of the largest management firms in the area, focusing on community involvement, relationships, and a commitment to excellence. While Ben still holds an active real estate license, his focus has shifted onto the continued growth and management of Colonial Properties Cabin and Resort Rentals.
Ben's wife Rachel is a licensed esthetician and graduate of Middle Tennesse State University. Most recently, Rachel has assisted two of the largest spa's in the area with their design and layout, product purchasing, inventory management, services menu and branded marketing. Her passion for working with people and developing lasting relationships is a quality unmatched in her industry.
Caleb is a freshman at Sevier County High School where he enjoys playing football, baseball and basketball. He is an honors student and member of the Junior Beta Club.
Brady is an eighth grader at Pigeon Forge Middle School where he enjoys playing football and basketball.
Waverly is the youngest of the family, but definitely has everyone wrapped around her finger. She just began walking and loves Mickey Mouse and dancing to any musical sound she hears.
