RP Homes Has 2 New Consultants Join Its Team

Monday, December 6, 2021

Home design and building company RP Homes has announced they are expanding their business into home selling with RP Realty. This expansion has opened new positions at RP Homes including a sales consultant position filled by realtor Chelsea Sanders and new sales consultant Chris Roach.

Ms. Sanders, a new and ambitious real estate licensee, is a member of the National Association of Realtors and comes from Los Angeles, Ca. Born in Louisiana and raised in South Carolina, Ms. Sanders missed the southeast and fell in love with Chattanooga.

“RP Homes is a great fit for me because of my passion for helping customers and families find a new home that is uniquely their own,” said Ms. Sanders. 

With a background in Retail Buying & Planning, Corporate Aviation, and Entertainment (SAG-AFTRA actress) Ms. Sanders has a unique and varied skill set that makes her both relatable and knowledgeable, said officials. 

Ms. Sanders, a dog lover, has two cats and would rather be outside than in - whether that is finding a new swimming hole along a hike or walking the Walnut Street Bridge. 

RP Homes - We build neighborhoods that we want to live in. We’re concerned with all the details, from aesthetics to how you live in it. We envision how it feels when you drive into the neighborhood, we think about the exterior feel of your home, we plan for life within your home. We apply our artisan sense of design and construction to create a community you are happy to be in and a house that you are happy to call home.

Mr. Roach grew up in northwest Georgia where he spent many of his young days on construction sites with his father who was a home builder. His adoration for architecture and roaming newly built homes started as soon as he could walk. 

“We all find our purpose in what we do," said Mr. Roach. "Joining the RP Homes team allows me to encapsulate all that brings me joy--my love for real estate, helping families find their dream home, being along for the ride of the build, and watching a community come together."

His diverse experience includes many years in sales, working on the set of National Geographic’s TV show - Building Wild, where he assisted in the design execution of luxury cabins in the mountains of Vermont, and being the right hand of the CEO and founder of a local IT security firm in Chattanooga.
