Keller Williams Realty Plans New Office In Anderson

by Jay Hufnagel

Keller Williams Realty (KW) is in the planning stage of opening a new office in Anderson, South Carolina. Tommy Stevenson, Team Leader in the Greenville, SC KW office, will be the new Operating Principle (OP) for the office and the Western Upstate area. The Market Center will be called Keller Williams Realty Western Upstate.


Terri Anderson, from Terri’s Team Real Estate, will be the Broker in Charge (BIC) of the office until a new Broker and Team Leader is announced and trained. The main office will be located at 4107 Liberty Hwy in Anderson.


Tommy estimates that by the time the Market Center opens, sometime in September, there will be over 60 Real Estate Agents committed to the new office. Plus, he added, as with most KW Market Centers, he expects this office will be profitable in its first full month of operation. All of this coming at a great time, as Real Estate activity appears to be heating up in the Lake Hartwell and Lake Keowee areas.


As you can imagine, Real Estate Agents all over the Upstate are setting new goals and looking for new opportunities. Working with KW and its “Win Win” culture may be a great way to increase their business.  Here’s an excerpt from Tommy’s website:  “At Keller Williams® (KW) we believe in training our associates so that they have the knowledge to build the best possible real estate team and have a successful career. When a KW Realtor® develops a system that works and is successful, they don't mind sharing it with everyone else.  Our associates and leadership believe in helping you obtain your goals and want to see you get there.”


On a personal note, I’ve worked with Tommy Stevenson on many occasions, and I expect his expectations are well within his grasp. Within the next couple of months, expect to see hundreds of red KW signs in front of homes for sale throughout the Upstate.

Lake Lanier - Whose water is it anyway?

by Jay Hufnagel

Come on ….  Think about it. Isn’t it common sense that, if water runs through your property, you should be able to use it for appropriate purposes? I can’t believe all the hoopla over the use of Lake Lanier’s water. Even before the lake was built in 1956 water from the Chattahoochee and Chestatee rivers was used by the people that inhabited the area around the river banks. It’s hard to imagine that Congress, when they originally set up the purposes for the lake, would want to exclude all of the municipalities that surround the lake, from using its water.  A recent article from the Gainesville Times (July 30, 2009) ran an opinion column by Lt. Governor Casey Cagle (recently sent out by the 1071 Coalition Group to their membership). In the article, Cagle said “Georgia has a fundamental right to the water that originates from its rivers and rain.”


Again … think about it.  If you put a rain barrel under your roof gutters, doesn’t it make sense that you should be able to use the water that drains into it as you see fit. Let’s hope, if this challenge isn’t worked out shortly, that the 435 Congressmen that will vote on this use the same common sense. What do you think?
