Anderson County is thriving!
What a wonderful event I attended earlier today. The City of Clinton hosted the Anderson County Chamber of Commerce member’s coffee. It was attended by area business leaders along with our local politicians. Members were talking about new the Confluence Solar plant coming into the I-75 industrial park along with a possible expansion at one of the other local plants. The need to support our local small businesses was also discussed. Sellers Realty was represented at the event by Jo Suggs, Joey Smith and myself, Melissa Davis. It was a great opportunity to network with area individuals.
The housing market in Anderson County is doing very well right now. We are very fortunate that we have not taken the “hit” to our market like other areas of the country. In my opinion, that is due to the fact that we have the industry in Oak Ridge and also, TVA that are not based soley on customer demand. Sellers Realty is starting out 2010 with a full sales pending board, a feat that is very seldom done in the winter months in real estate.
Also, Leslie Sellers, the co-owner of Sellers Realty and manager of the appraisal department, was inducted last night as President of The Appraisal Institute. The Appraisal Institute is an advocacy and education organization that has 91 chapters and more than 25,000 members. Everyone at Sellers Realty is very proud of this accomplishment. Who would have thought a man from Clinton, Tn. would achieve such a distinquished honor? Leslie travels the world advocating the principles and ethics of appraising.
So this week has been a busy week at Sellers Realty! Let’s keep the momentum going!
