Keller Williams Realty announced the addition of Zac Adams as the newest member of the Robinson Team of Keller Williams Realty. Mr. Adams is joining the team as a commercial real estate agent.

Through his background in the sales industry, Mr. Adams has honed his expertise in operations and marketing in complex, fast-paced environments. With over 15 years of experience, Mr. Adams’ exemplary relationship building skills, as well as his organizational and communication abilities will be a great asset to the Robinson Team.

Jay Robinson said, “Zac’s diverse sales background will serve him well as he assists our clients in finding property that will suit their business needs. We are thrilled to increase our focus as a team on commercial real estate and we know he will rise to any challenge he meets. We look forward to having Zac as a fully dedicated staff member who will continue to meet the needs of our clients and community.”

Born in Dalton and a native of Atlanta, Mr. Adams began his career as a competitive swimming coach after completing his Bachelor’s degree in Broadcast Journalism at Louisiana State University, where he was a three-time letter winner and SEC finalist on the collegiate swimming team. He has coached all ages, in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Raleigh, North Carolina, and the Atlanta area before becoming head coach at Anderson Swimming Club in Anderson, South Carolina in 2008. He then was named assistant swim coach at Clemson University in 2010, followed by serving as director of operations for the Florida State University athletic department in 2011, concluding his coaching career as an assistant swim coach at Georgia Tech.

For the past eight years, Mr. Adams has worked in sales for Arena USA followed by serving as Director of Competitive Swimming for Adidas Swim. It was through these experiences that he developed and enhanced his knack for sales and marketing strategies.

Due to his years working in competitive coaching and sales, Mr. Adams says making the move to commercial real estate sales is a natural progression.

He said, “Having played competitive sports all my life, I have always been driven by learning from mistakes and finding ways to better myself. I joke that because of this, I have become a ‘jack of all trades, but master of none’. The biggest lessons sports and sales has taught me is the ability to problem solve. I think this is what has prepared me to dive into my new role head first and look forward to the challenges that come with commercial real estate,” said Adams.

A love of sports and competition runs in the family, as Mr. Adams is the son of Brent Adams, who was inducted into both the UTC Hall of Fame and the Greater Chattanooga Sports Hall of Fame in 2017. A four-year starter in the offensive line at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, Brent Adams was voted the team’s most valuable player as well as its most valuable offensive player as a senior in 1974, when he was a second-team Little All-American. He was an eighth-round draft choice of the Atlanta Falcons and broke into their starting lineup as a rookie in 1975. He played with Atlanta through 1978 and finished his five-year NFL career with the Los Angeles Rams. He was voted to UTC’s all-century team and is in the school’s hall of fame. His sister, Merritt, also a Chattanooga resident, swam at Northwestern University and currently works in pediatric orthopedics at Erlanger Hospital.

“I am so proud of the legacy left by my father at UTC and in Chattanooga as a whole. He has always taught me to excel in everything I do, and I am honored to continue his legacy in this great community I am lucky to call home,” said Mr. Adams.
