Chattanooga Home Winter Weather
Winter brings the chill and can make you want to curl up inside. But nobody wants a sky-high heating bill either. If you've been out walking the dogs, hiking, running errands, or touring Chattanooga homes for sale, these tips will help keep you warm and toasty all season long.

  1. Schedule a tune-up. Before the heating season starts, have an HVAC professional make sure your heating equipment is in good working order. Cleaning, removing fuel deposits and changing filters will reduce inconvenient breakdowns and keep it operating at peak efficiency.

5C's of Credit
The process of buying a home starts long before you start looking at listings. It starts when you begin building credit. The ways you spend money and the debts you carry will have a significant impact on your credit.

  1. Character Counts
    Lenders will examine your credit report to determine your credit risk. They will look at how long you have worked for an employer and how long you have lived at the same address. Lenders want to see stability and consistency as these are the foundations of good character.

Chattanooga Green
Kermit the Frog became famous for telling folks "It's not easy being green." It wasn't that long ago when Chattanooga locals decided to prove Kermit wrong.

Our REALTORS® are here to share information about Chattanooga's bright future.

In the 1960s, Chattanooga was choked with smog. Ozone, particulate matter, and toxic chemicals formed a thick soup which swirled throughout the city. Little was done to change this until the 1990's when the city introduced free, all-electric buses for people to use throughout the downtown area.

Discover the Difference a REALTOR Makes
When you're ready to buy a home (or sell one), you need every possible advantage. One of the biggest advantages you can have is getting a great REALTOR® on your team. And while there are plenty of talented real estate agents out there, our years of listing Chattanooga homes for sale have taught us that working with a REALTOR® can make all the difference in the world. 

REALTOR® Versus Real Estate Agent

The terms REALTOR® and real estate agent might seem like they describe the same thing, and you might have even heard them used interchangeably. But there is a crucial difference. A REALTOR® is a real estate agent who is a member of the National Association of REALTORS®, which means that he or she must uphold the standards and code of ethics of that association. Anyone who earns their real estate license can be called a real estate agent, but becoming a REALTOR® involves a more rigorous process and adherence to a strict code.
