For our first blog post I thought I would tell you the story of how Prestige Homes of the Tri-Cities, Inc began.
Imagine being able to pick and choose the people you spend the most time with at work?
That is exactly what we do at Prestige Homes.
Prestige Homes of the Tri-Cities is one of the youngest and most innovative residential real estate companies in the Tri-Cities of East Tennessee and Southwest Virginia. We were born in September of 2009 and have had an exciting and fulfilling early childhood. We have grown from two to twenty agents and two staff over the last five years.
How did we get our start?
It all began at the urging of an agent who wanted to come to work with me. The problem was she didn’t want to work in commercial real estate. Her passion was interior design and putting people in homes they love. Our company at that time (Bob Callahan REALTORS®) specialized in commercial real estate only. She asked me “Would you consider opening a residential company?”...... and well the rest is history.
Thanks to her urging, we are now building an exciting business helping people buy and sell homes all over the Tennessee Tri-Cities and Southwest Virginia. I am not sure I would have done it, if I had attempted to plan the business. It would have scared me senseless to see a monthly advertising budget! Nope, no plan then, but a huge plan now. We want to fill all the cracks we perceive to exist in our area market and keep filling them until no one wants or needs homes anymore.
We have fun, enjoy each other and sell real estate. It’s such a pleasure to work with people you actually like and respect...what a novel idea.
