Barry Hamilton, Team Leader for 2018 Top Producing Team said, “My brother Woody and I were learning Real Estate sales lessons before we had high school diplomas by watching our mom, Bonnie, navigate negotiations and family relocations to Chattanooga for many years, We returned to town as adults and realized what an all-encompassing and rewarding career she had created. While each of us has a different client base, our values and business sense are stronger together than apart; that strength is reinforced by working with trustworthy fellow Realtors at Realty Center."

The firm’s Rising Star for 2018 is Ian Pfeiffer of the East Brainerd campus.

The annual celebration was jointly a 10th Anniversary of Realty Center Title and Escrow, a full service firm providing Title Insurance and Closing services for the entire region and to celebrate the 1000’s of homes sold in 2018.
