These Realtors have achieved the highest volume in sales for the company within its East Tennessee Region. The rankings are based on closed gross commission income.

Jay Robinson of Crye-Leike’s Downtown Chattanooga branch office was named Crye-Leike’s 2004 Producer of the Year within its East Tennessee Region, the fourth year in a row Robinson has held this title.

Crye-Leike’s No. 2 sales producer in 2004 was Judy Allen of Crye-Leike’s Cleveland branch office, followed by No. 3, Sandi Hennon of Crye-Leike’s Signal Mountain branch office.

“Our sales leaders are to be commended for their achievements, but Crye-Leike would be remiss if we didn’t further recognize the remaining members of Crye-Leike’s sales team who helped the company reach a record breaking year in 2004, $4.6 billion in sales, the highest ever in company history,” said Chief Executive Officer Harold E. Crye. Crye-Leike’s sales force of over 2,800 sales associates closed a total of 29,581 transaction sides in 2004.

Crye-Leike of Chattanooga’s year-end sales volume totaled $573.6 million, up 16 percent, and property sales totaled 4,000, a 7 percent increase from the sales reported through 2003.
