FAIRVIEW, TN., – Crye-Leike Realtors congratulates the associates and staff at the company’s Fairview Tennessee branch office on their official State of Tennessee sanctioned adoption of the first mile of Highway 100 on the east side of Fairview.


The stretch of adopted highway is near by Crye-Leike, Realtors Fairview branch office, located at 2239 Fairview Blvd., Suite 100.


“Adopting a section of state highway gives us the responsibility of collecting trash along the roadway,” said Sheree Rudd, Managing Broker for Crye-Leike, Realtors Fairview office.  “In return, the State of Tennessee provides us with a marker to recognize us for our gesture and efforts to keep Fairview beautiful.”


Rudd says the process to formalize the highway adoption was fairly easy.


“All we had to do was contact the Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) office in Nashville and see what portions of the highway through Fairview were essentially orphaned,” said Rudd.  “We thought the first mile as you come into Fairview from Nashville and Franklin was the best stretch for us to take care of.”


As hard working Realtors, Rudd says it’s important in our profession to always make a good first impression.  She believes, by adopting a portion of the most heavily traveled roadway through the community, it’s a great way to extend a positive impression to the residents of the community and anyone who’s just driving through.


“According to TDOT, there are still a few good area along the highway in Fairview still up for adoption,” said Rudd.  It would be great is we had business partners along the entire stretch, ensuring the roadway remains free of unsightly litter.”
