Chattanooga Real Estate Agent Jay Robinson, founder of the Robinson Team of Keller Williams Realty, announced the addition two additional buyer’s agents to his already dynamic team of real estate professionals. Tricia Adams and Sarah Brandt, both of Chattanooga, have joined the Robinson Team as full-time buyer’s specialists, effective immediately. 


Mr. Robinson, founder and owner of the Robinson Team of Keller Williams Realty Downtown Chattanooga, had this to say about the addition of Ms. Adams and Ms. Brandt: 


“We are excited to have Tricia and Sarah join our team, their outstanding energy and exceptional skills will be a strong compliment to our team,” said Robinson.

“Even as our real estate market continues to grow and evolve, my top priority continues to be ensuring that our clients receive the very highest level of service—every move we make starts there.”


Ms. Adams, a graduate of the University of Georgia and was an NCAA Champion swimmer for the Bulldogs. Adams joins the Robinson Team bringing with her an outside appreciation for the Scenic City. She said, “My husband and I made the choice to raise our family here in his hometown and it was the best decision we’ve ever made,” Adams said of her move to Chattanooga. “The quality of life, the friendly people, the vibrant downtown, the beautiful landscape—Chattanooga has it all. Whether you are looking to start a tech company or a family (or both!), there is just no better place to be.”


When she is not working with clients, Ms. Adams enjoys spending time with her husband Zac and their son Smith. Prior to embarking on her real estate carrier she developed a strong work ethic as a swimming coach at several NCAA Division I institutions—including Florida State University and Clemson University.


Ms. Brandt is a graduate of the University of Tennessee and a native of Knoxville. She moved to Chattanooga in 2013 and fell in love with the Scenic City. “Chattanooga is clearly a city on the rise and I am thrilled to be a part of its revitalization,” said Ms. Brandt when asked why she decided to begin her real estate career in the Scenic City. “From the outdoor amenities and the natural beauty to the hottest boutiques and restaurants, you simply can’t beat what this city is selling.”


Prior to entering the real estate profession she honed her people skills in the health care industry, most recently with Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Tennessee. She and her husband Rob are passionate about the outdoors and conservation and they enjoy traveling, hiking, fly fishing, and shooting sports.  


With the addition of Ms. Brandt and Ms. Adams, the Robinson Team now has a total of seven agents and a fulltime support staff of four. Led by founder Jay Robinson and his wife Ali Robinson, they have assembled a unique team of real estate professionals who utilize decades of experience and market-leading technology to meet all of their clients’ home buying and selling needs.
