Joan Rose

Joan Rose of Ooltewah has become affiliated with Coldwell Banker Pryor Realty, Inc. As a realtor and affiliate broker, Ms. Rose will specialize in residential real estate. 

She is well respected in the business community for her years spent marketing commercial banks and financial services in the Chattanooga area for AmSouth Bank and First Volunteer Bank. Her marketing background and communication skills have led to a successful transition into the real estate arena. 

Ms. Rose said, “I’ve always loved real estate and in particular buying and moving into a new home.  The excitement of taking a house and making it a home has always been special to me.  I can remember our last two moves – being so excited that I’m up before dawn bubbling with anticipation of the move into a new home.  Buying or selling a home can be a stressful experience; but it can also be rewarding and exciting."  

When asked how one goes from a marketing career into real estate, she said, “It’s a natural transition – the real estate industry requires good marketing skills. You’re working with people to help match them up with just the right property.  Handling a real estate transaction is very detailed oriented and requires good communication skills – that’s what marketing is all about.”

Ms. Rose is a graduate of Leadership Chattanooga, a member of the Chattanooga Women’s Leadership Institute, and serves on the Board of Directors for Junior Achievement.  She volunteers in various roles with the United Way, the Chattanooga Chamber of Commerce, the Salvation Army and St. Francis of Assisi Episcopal Church.

He was a Division III football coach at some monastery of a place in Minnesota and that’s a long way from the Southeastern Conference. Our orbits rarely overlapped but somewhere down the line we were at the same table for dinner. Once that happened, it seemed like the ... (click for more)
