Engel & Völkers has opened a brokerage in Chattanooga, marking the first Tennessee location for the global real estate brand. The newly established Engel & Völkers Chattanooga comes as the result of a partnership between Engel & Völkers and local real estate company Bridge City Realty. Real estate professionals Tonjia and Jeremy Landreth will lead the office.

Engel & Völkers Chattanooga will also be comprised of 18 real estate advisors, who will service home buyers and sellers in Chattanooga and several neighboring counties.

“Chattanooga has seen a lot of urbanization and growth,” says Anthony Hitt, president and CEO of Engel & Völkers Americas. “With companies like Amazon and Volkswagen establishing roots in the area, it’s received a surge of interest from affluent clientele and international real estate investors.

“We’re confident Tonjia and Jeremy, with their knowledge of the local market and proven success with Bridge City Realty, will be the ideal partners to establish the Engel & Völkers brand and best serve clientele in Chattanooga’s evolving real estate market.”

“Demand is high in Chattanooga, with downtown properties rarely staying on the market for more than a few days,” Tonjia says. “The Engel & Völkers brand brings standards of professionalism that are necessary in the current Chattanooga market and enable our agents to best accommodate our clients locally and abroad, whether buying or selling.”

Engel & Völkers operates a network of brokerages in more than 30 countries spanning five continents. Information: www.chattanooga.evusa.com
