(Memphis, TN) – Jeff Blakeney has joined Marx-Bensdorf as an Affiliate Broker. Prior to joining the firm, Jeff served as a senior account manager for Experitec, Inc., a company specializing in the sales and support of products and services provided by Emerson Process Management, one of the world’s largest providers of equipment, engineering and services for industrial process control and automation.
With 25 years of sales and management expertise, Jeff is eager to apply skills honed in his previous career to his real estate clients.
Jeff’s wife, Melanie Blakeney, is already a REALTOR® at Marx-Bensdorf and the two will work together to serve their valued clients. Before Melanie joined Marx-Bensdorf in 2018, she served as CEO of the Memphis Area Association of REALTORS® (MAAR). 
“In the world of engineering, customers and projects have specific needs that make them unique and help a facility to function optimally,” says Jeff. “I enjoy listening and learning from clients and then designing and delivering a solution that exceeds their expectations. I am thrilled to team up with Melanie to help our clients sell their beloved homes, or to find an ideal fit for their new home.”

A graduate of the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, Jeff has a Bachelor’s degree in industrial technology.

When he’s not working, Jeff enjoys bass fishing, backpacking, and hiking long distances on trails such as the Appalachian Trail and the Pacific Crest Trail. Jeff and Melanie reside in Memphis with their border collie, Daisy.
