RE/MAX Renaissance Realtors Of Hixson Hosts Ribbon-Cutting

Wednesday, March 14, 2018

RE/MAX Renaissance Realtors of Hixson hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony and open house on Tuiesday sponsored by the Chattanooga Chamber of Commerce.  Over 100 members from the business community and public were on hand to celebrate.

Business owners Frances Vantrease and Beth Dodson welcomed the guests and thanked the community for their past support.  Ms. Dodson said, “We are thrilled to be adding a REMAX office and expanding services to the communities of Hixson, Soddy Daisy and Sale Creek."

The full service real estate brokerage opened with a principal broker and four realtors, and plans to add 2-3 more full-time agents within the next few months. 

According to principal broker Brenda B. Purcell, “Our goal will be to provide client friendly services.  We realize that buying and selling a home can be both exciting and stressful for consumers.  If we do our jobs correctly, we can help eliminate some of this stress.  Further, by having an office near, them it is easier for our clients to reach us.  Even in a high tech world, we realize that real estate is 'all about the relationships and needs of the customers.'  We want to be out and about in the communities they live, work and play in.   We will strive to be partners and community builders with them.”

RE/MAX is seeking agents with at least 2-3 years of experience in real estate to join their growing firm.  For more information, contact Brenda Purcell at 423-648-8200, or stop by for a tour of the new office located at 6204 Hixson Pike.
