New realtor Laurena Morehead has joined Crye-Leike and became friends with top producing realtor Rommel Ramos. 

Ms. Morehead first met Mr. Ramos when he was speaking and mentoring at a Crye-Leike College class she was attending as a new agent for the company. Mr. Ramos mentioned wanting to team up with another agent who was passionate about working with real estate buyers and said Ms. Morehead fit that description well. 

Mr. Ramos and Ms. Morehead have combined their real estate expertise to work together as Team Ramos for Crye-Leike based out of the company’s East Brainerd branch office.  Mr. Ramos focuses on helping sellers list, market and sell their homes for the most money possible and Ms. Morehead guides buyers through the entire process of purchasing a home helping them find an affordable house they can call home. 

“Team Ramos is off to a great start,” said Mr. Ramos. “We work well together because we compliment each other’s strengths and we pride ourselves on helping people sell and buy homes, not just houses. We realize a real estate transaction is one of the biggest financial decisions people face, so advising our clients to make the best decisions for them and their situation is our top priority.” 

Team Ramos assists buyers and sellers in and around Hamilton, Bradley, Catoosa, and Walker counties. They specialize in working with residential real estate sales, first-time home buyers, investment properties, and REO bank owned properties.  Mr. Ramos and Ms. Morehead are both members of the Chattanooga Association of Realtors, the Tennessee Association of Realtors, the Georgia Association of Realtors, and the National Association of Realtors. 

“As a new realtor, I’m honored to get to work with someone like Rommel who has acquired so much real estate knowledge and expertise,” said Ms. Morehead. “Rommel has been a great mentor to me as a new agent ever since I was first inspired by his work ethic when I met him in Crye-Leike College. He is a very hard working man and doesn’t seem to sit still much.” 

Mr. Ramos has been a top producing realtor for over a decade. He consistently ranks as one of Crye-Leike’s top realtors in the company’s Chattanooga region and he ranked as the top selling agent for the company’s East Brainerd branch office for 2012.  Mr. Ramos is also a member of the Crye-Leike Multi-Million Dollar Club. 

Although Ms. Morehead is new to the real estate profession, she’s had a love for homes and a dream to become a realtor since she was a teenager.  She was recently inspired to finally pursue a real estate career after selling her home and purchasing a farm. Those transactions reminded Ms. Morehead just how much she loved real estate.  She enjoys working with buyers to help them find that perfect place to call home. She especially enjoys assisting young couples find and purchase their first home.
