Active Real Estate Joins Coldwell Banker Real Estate Franchise Network

TIFTON, Ga. - Feb. 24, 2016 // PRNewswire // - Active Real Estate is now serving the Tift and Ben Hill counties' residential real estate market as the newest member of the Coldwell Banker® global franchise network.  The firm will now do business as Coldwell Banker Active Real Estate.

The company was founded by Melissa Burgess in 2007 and has 15 independent sales associates with more than 65 years of combined experience in real estate sales.  Burgess was one of five sales professionals from the company recently honored by the Tiftarea Board of Realtors with the Circle of Excellence award, joining Al Johnson, Mona Bennett, Blake Marshall and Lamar Boyer.

"We are proud to have Melissa and her sales associates as part of the Coldwell Banker network and look forward to expanding the Coldwell Banker presence into the south central area of Georgia," said Budge Huskey, president and chief executive officer of Coldwell Banker Real Estate LLC. 

"Our area offers a sense of community coupled with an affordable cost of living that is below the state average," said Burgess. "The continued growth we are seeing with new businesses opening storefronts and restaurants in the area, especially in the historic downtown district and west of Interstate 75, Tift Countycontinues to show signs of a positive local economy.  Our housing market is being impacted by low inventory levels at the entry level, making it a great opportunity for homeowners thinking about putting their home on the market."
