Crye-Leike to Hold Over 1000 Open Houses Company Wide

Memphis, Tenn. – With spring upon us and the home buying fever in the air, Crye-Leike, Realtors, the largest real estate company in Tennessee and the Mid-South, is putting a different twist on a traditional approach to selling residential properties. Crye-Leike is planning a company-wide Sunday open house that will feature over 1,000 homes for sale over a three-week period within Crye-Leike’s Memphis, Nashville and Chattanooga markets.

Called “Crye-Leike’s Spring Spectacular Showcase of Homes,” the Crye-Leike promotion will showcase their residential properties for sale on Sunday, April 14 in the Greater Memphis area; Sunday, April 21 in the Greater Nashville area and Sunday, May 5 in the Greater Chattanooga area. Open house times vary between 1 p.m. and 5 p.m., so check the Crye-Leike advertisement in Sunday’s real estate section of The Commercial Appeal.

“This company-wide effort was organized to give potential buyers easy access to a huge selection of choice listings within a few short hours,” said Harold Crye, chief executive officer. “There is no other real estate company in the Middle Tennessee region that can hold a company-wide open house on this scale like Crye-Leike. Our selection is unparalleled. We think it’s a win-win opportunity for buyers, sellers and our fellow Realtors.”

Realtors say that spring and summer traditionally are the busiest home buying seasons and that open houses generate an average of three to four visitors per showing.

“It is our experience that customers may not necessarily buy a house they see from one of our open houses, but they do purchase other Crye-Leike houses for sale,” said Crye.

A complete listing of those Crye-Leike open houses planned in the Greater Memphis area for Sunday, April 14, 2002 will be featured in a special Crye-Leike advertisement within The Commercial Appeal’s Sunday real estate section.

Crye-Leike (, a full service real estate company for 25 years, is the nation’s 13th largest real estate company. Crye-Leike, Inc. in Memphis has a sales force of over 1,100 sales associates who are located in 23 branch and franchise offices in eight counties throughout a three-state Mid-South region in Tennessee, Arkansas and Mississippi.
