Crye-Leike Congratulates 2019 Chattanooga Regional Top Producers

Chattanooga, TN:   Crye-Leike Real Estate Services announces its 2019 top producing award winners for the Chattanooga Region. To be named a top producing agent or team in one of Crye-Leike’s nine-state regions, individual(s) must have earned the highest sales volume, or had the highest number of real estate transactions, for that year.

The region saw an 11 percent sales increase in 2019. CEO and Co-Founder Harold Crye honored the region’s agents and award recipients at Crye-Leike’s Chattanooga Kick-Off meeting in January.

“We are very proud of the dedication and commitment seen by all of our agents and top producers,” said Crye. “2019 was a record-breaking year for the company and would not have been possible without their hard-work and drive.”

Congratulations to the following Crye-Leike associates:
