Crye-Leike Congratulates 2019 East Tennessee Regional Top Producers

Knoxville, TN:   Crye-Leike Real Estate Services announces its 2019 top producing award winners for the East Tennessee 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.

CEO and Co-Founder Harold Crye honored the region’s agents and award recipients at Crye-Leike’s Knoxville 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:
