Signature Brokers Affiliates With Better Homes And Gardens Real Estate In Tennessee

Thursday, December 8, 2016

Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate announced on Thursday the addition of Signature Brokers to its franchise network. The newly-named Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Signature Brokers, led by broker/owner and real estate veteran Gina Sakich, will continue to serve the Chattanooga area, including the Ooltewah, Apison, Soddy Daisy, East Brainerd, Hixson, Harrison and North Shore communities.

“The appeal of Chattanooga’s outdoors lifestyle, matched with their growing technology scene, is an attractive combination,” said Sherry Chris, president and CEO, Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate LLC. “The talented agents affiliated with Signature Brokers have mastered the art of selling homes in this area and understand their clients’ wants and needs. Gina Sakich’s many years of experience, combined with the marketing experience of her team, makes them a natural fit for the Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate network.”

Ms. Sakich, broker/owner, Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Signature Brokers said, “This is a milestone mark for our brokerage. By working with the team at Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate, we will optimize our web presence, marketing tools and branding to serve our client base in a more impactful way.” 

Chattanooga, sometimes called “Gig City,” is known for having one of the fastest, most affordable high-speed Internet services in the U.S. Accordingly, the region has attracted a burgeoning technology scene of programmers, entrepreneurs and investors looking to have a presence in the main business district. The corresponding growth in Chattanooga is easy to see — historic factory buildings have been converted to luxury loft apartments, and there is a heightened number of open-space offices, restaurants and shops.

In addition to being an attractive hub for technology incubators and the industry as a whole, Chattanooga is a popular destination for retirees, as it sits on the Tennessee River and is near the Appalachian Mountains. In fact, it was named Outside Magazine’s Best Town in 2015. It is home to top venues for rock climbing, road and mountain biking, hiking, white water rafting, hang gliding and more. It has a 15-mile river walk and is also a short drive to major cities including Nashville, Knoxville, Atlanta and Birmingham.

Ms. Sakich has been working in the real estate industry for more than 20 years. Committed to giving back to the local community, she has formed partnerships with The Partnership for Families, Children, and Adults and has planned philanthropic events with Habitat for Humanity.
