Our Story

Palmetto Properties, LLC

Is a family-owned and operated real estate development company that embodies the entrepreneurial spirit of two generations. Founded by David and Tanya Coffey, who have successful careers outside of real estate development, the company is dedicated to creating unique and efficient residential and commercial spaces. Their vision was born during a lunch at Popes Cafe, one of Shelbyville’s most well-known restaurants, located in the picturesque square of Shelbyville, TN. Fueled by the desire to meet the demands of the fast-growing community of Shelbyville and Bedford County, Tanya and David created Palmetto Properties LLC to offer budget-friendly properties that are well-designed and cater to different needs. Since 2014, the company has steadily and consistently grown its holdings, and it now offers a diverse range of properties, including single-family homes, duplexes, and commercial office and retail space for lease. Palmetto Properties LLC prides itself on delivering exceptional service and creating long-lasting relationships with our clients.
