Local Realtors Recognized As Best In State

Monday, April 28, 2014

Two Chattanooga realtors were recognized as the highest performing RE/MAX real estate agents across Tennessee at an award ceremony in Nashville.

Nickie Schwartzkopf was honored with the BrokerFirst award, for utilizing RE/MAX’s BrokerFirst interactive program designed to help RE/MAX brokers successfully grow and manage their businesses.  Ms. Schwartzkopf was selected for the award for embracing BrokerFirst and actively integrating the program into all aspects of her business.

Jason Farmer, broker and owner of RE/MAX Renaissance Realtors, earned the Showcase Average Commission Award for his team. The Showcase Award is based on agent growth, average monthly and yearly commission per agent, percentage of productive agents and other metrics of success. Mr. Farmer’s team ranked highest out of all other offices of similar size (31 to 50) across the state.

“Nickie and Jason have set the gold standard for excellence and RE/MAX loves to publicly recognize members of our team who achieve outstanding results for their clients,” said John Crimmins, senior VP of Operations. “Home buyers and sellers in the Chattanooga area can rely on these two realtors, plus the many other RE/MAX agents in the area to achieve their homeownership goals.”
