Crye-Leike, Realtors On the Move in Germantown

BRENTWOOD, TN.- Crye-Leike, Realtors announces that its Exeter office location, one of two branches in Germantown, has relocated to a larger commercial office space – at 3030 Forest-Hill – Irene Road.  The office will be under the leadership of Managing Broker Sue Stinson Turner, CRS, CRB, PMN, e-PRO, SRES.

“We will be known as the Germantown – Forest Hill branch office from now on,” said Sue Stinson Turner, Managing Broker with Crye-Leike, Realtors.  “It’s exciting to be in a new location that will offer us and our clients more comforts, convenience and truly world class service.”

Stinson Turner joined the company in November 1998 when Harold Crye & Dick Leike purchased the former Pyramid, Inc. Realtors and the leased office space on Exeter and six other locations throughout the Memphis area.

“Overtime is became apparent that our space on Exeter was not only too small, but it was in very close proximity to other Crye-Leike, Realtors branch locations in and around Germantown,” said Stinson Turner.  “Here on Forest Hill – Irene Road we are so close to Highway 385 that it will vastly improve our ability to serve more clients and communities in the area.”

Convenience is just part of the story.  Crye-Leike’s new Forest Hill location offers 16 thousand square feet of office space, almost double the 85-hundred in the former Exeter location.  And now at Forest Hill, Stinson Turner anticipates being able to grow her sales team of 109 agents up to as many as 180.

“That’s my goal,” said Stinson Turner.  “Given the fact that we’ve already had nine new affiliate brokers join us in the move over – I’m well on my way to reaching my goal of 180 new agents.”

In addition to real estate services, the Forest Hill location will also be home to a branch of Realty Title and Escrow, Magna Bank and will have on duty a representative from Crye-Leike Insurance.

“Between now and our official Grand Opening in November, we’ll have two of the familiar big red Crye-Leike, Realtors signs in place on our new location,” said Stinson Turner.  “We’re so glad to be in the neighborhood, and look forward to serving our past clients and new clients from our new home in Germantown.”

Managing Broker Sue Stinson Turner has 30 years of real estate experience, the last nine years with Crye-Leike, Realtors.  She is a Director and the Division One Vice President of the Tennessee Association of Realtors and a Past President, a Director in the National Association of Realtors and a former Past President of the Memphis Area Association of Realtors.
