Memphis-based Crye-Leike Realtors recently opened its second Springdale branch at 2704 American St. in east Springdale.

 

The office was formerly home to Jerri Jenkins & Associates.

 

Jenkins and her staff will be joining the Crye-Leike family with Jenkins serving as the branch’s managing broker.

 

But the 3,000-SF office is only a temporary home for the staff.

 

Around the first of the year the office’s team of two staff personnel and 12 licensed Realtors will be moving to a new 6,000-SF office in Lowell.

 

Crye-Leike director of public relations Mike Machak said the move to Lowell will allow the office to nearly double the number of licensed agents.

 

On Oct. 1 Crye-Leike broke ground on their new, 14,000-SF west Springdale office, which is located at the intersection of West Sunset and Founders Park Drive.

 

The office will house the west Springdale Crye-Leike branch and a new branch office of Realty Title and Escrow, which is also owned by Crye-Leike owners Harold Crye and Dick Leike.

 

The temporary west Springdale location currently houses 20 agents.

 

The number will increase to 75 with the completion of the permanent location. The team, which is lead by managing broker Kendall Riggins, has about 300 listings.
