LIVINGSTON – After 19 years as a RE/MAX franchise, Dino and Catherine Cates, brokers/owners of Remax Crossroads in Livingston and Cookeville, have joined EXIT Realty International under the regional umbrella of EXIT Rocky Top Realty of Crossville.
EXIT Realty International is headquartered in Toronto and is emerging as a new leader in the market. This will be EXIT’s sixth office in the Upper Cumberland. The Cates’ will maintain their locations at 518 W. Main St. in Livingston and 208 S. Jefferson Ave. in Cookeville.
“This is a tremendous and critical move for us, which we do not take lightly,” Dino Cates said. “Buying and selling real estate for some is literally a life-and-death situation. Real estate is at the very heart of their existence. We take this very seriously and are committed to providing our clients with the best services available. And we know this move to Exit Realty is the best decision for our clients.”
EXIT is planning to open 3,600 franchises in North American with more than 100,000 sales representatives by the year 2020. Joining a national franchise is key for referrals; Cates – a 2013 Ovation Award winner for Excellence in Professional Services – is projecting an increase in sales and market share as a result.
“To stay we are excited is an understatement. We are ready for the next phase of our mission to serve our clients,” he added.
