After 16 years of helping home buyers and sellers with their real estate needs, Chattanooga realtor Gayla W. Choate decided it was time to make a move to Crye-Leike to better her business and better serve her customers.
“After having a career in real estate sales for the last 16 years, I have built a reputation as an agent who skillfully focuses on my customer’s needs and have many satisfied clients,” said Ms. Choate. “I have grown my business steadily and look forward to growing it even more as I excitedly join Crye-Leike.”
Ms. Choate is now a member of the Crye-Leike sales team in the company’s Ooltewah branch office. She is a licensed realtor in Tennessee and Georgia working with buyers and sellers in and around Hamilton, Bradley, Catoosa, and Walker counties. She specializes in all types of residential real estate sales focusing on first-time homebuyers, relocation, new home construction, farm and land, condo, townhomes and investment properties. She is a member of the Greater Chattanooga Association of Realtors, the Tennessee Association of Realtors, and the National Association of Realtors.
“I have lived in the Chattanooga, Harrison and Ooltewah area for over 59 years. With my family experience in residential building and having built four new homes of my own, I bring a lot of knowledge to my real estate profession,” said Ms. Choate. “I was proud multi-million dollar producer my first year in the business and have carried on that tradition bringing a servant’s heart, great integrity and knowledge to the marketplace.”
Before becoming a licensed realtor, Ms. Choate worked as an information records representative with the Tennessee Valley Authority for 30 years. With the TVA, she was also a certified trainer for Diversity Awareness. She was a union member with the Office and Professional Employees International Union for 30 years serving as a vice president, designated union representative, and a member of the contract negotiation team and the health insurance committee.
