Chris Todd Named Director Of Professional Development At Real Estate Partners Chattanooga

Friday, January 5, 2018

Real Estate Partners Chattanooga LLC has named Chris Todd its director of Professional Development. In this newly created position, Mr. Todd is director and facilitator of the new Partners Work2Win agent career development program.

The Work2Win program will join the ongoing core curriculum courses taught by veteran real estate educator Pam Duffy, director of Training and the popular agent collaboration “Mornings with Mary” workshops facilitated by Mary Sanders.

“Chris brings energy, structure, accountability and a great record of success in working with both new agents to jump start their careers and experienced agents to attain higher levels of sales production. We are excited about the new ‘success tools’ he is offering beginning this month,” Company President Darlene Brown said.

Mr. Todd is a certified trainer with a career performance history in pharmaceutical, industrial and tech sales, before embarking on a real estate career shortly after relocating to Chattanooga. He, his wife Kay and their two children live on Signal Mountain.

The Work2Win program is a reflection of Real Estate Partners corporate philosophy and company culture.  “We are implementing an ongoing multi-faceted, dynamic program to give both our new agents and experienced professionals the specific information, tools and accountability support to Work2Win,” Mr Todd said of his new professional development platform.

The Work2Win program also offers “transparency” to new agents working to build their real estate business, according to Ryan May, Business Resource and Development director for the company.
“To be successful and productive in the real estate industry a strong work ethic must be the foundation. We are giving our real estate professionals the tools to work to win in their business and with that in our profession as well,” Mr. May said.

"The strong work ethic, dedication to clients and customers and a mandate for continuing education paid off for Real Estate Partners again in 2017 as it generated $240,485,827 in sales volume with a total of only 55 agents on board during the reporting period of 01/01/2017 - 12/31/2017. The company had the highest average sales price at $283,927 of any of the top five real estate companies and was the only locally-owned, independent real estate company to rank among the top five Chattanooga real estate companies, according to reports generated through the Greater Chattanooga Association of REALTORS data base," officials said.

The 11-year-old company has two offices, Downtown in the Southside District and East location on Shallowford Road. A third location on Signal Mountain will open during the first quarter of this year.

I travel to other neat old cities and don't see nearly the graffiti vandalism as in Chattanooga.
