Nashvilles Professional Sports Teams
The Tennessee Titans NFL Football
Nashville is lucky to have two major teams in the world of professional sports. The Nashville based Tennessee Titans are recognized as one of the best teams in the NFL and their potential continues to grow.
Mike Reinfeldt is the CEO and relocated here from Seattle. Mike found the ability to search for homes online a great advantage when they were looking for a home in Nashville. Gary Ashton was Mike's realtor and helped the Reinfeldt's find the new home in Nashville in 2007. Look for more news about the Titans and RE/MAX in the coming months.
2008 had been a great start for the Titans and in particular the outstanding talent of Cortland Finnegan. Cortland was a RE/MAX Elite client and worked with Gary Ashton in finding a home in Brentwood TN. Since his move to follow Titans ex coach Jeff Fisher, Cortland home is now on the market in Annandale.
2012 saw the departure of Mike Rinefeldt from the job as COO but we would like to thank Mike for assiting with the involvemnet of The Ashton Real Estate Group in coming the Official Real estate Team for the Titans in 2012. We all wish him well in his next endevour in the NFL.
Here is Mike's parting message:
"Although I am extremely disappointed in the decision, I thank Mr. Adams for the opportunity over the last six years," Reinfeld said. "Having moved into this expanded role in February, I’m not only proud that we are on pace for a successful financial year, but confident that Ruston (Webster) and Mike (Munchak) have made significant strides on the football field and are a move or two away from taking the next step. I certainly understand and share in the frustration of Mr. Adams and all Titans fans, there are a great deal of good people here and patience is probably prudent at this point. I have supported this franchise as a player and executive and wish it nothing but success in the future." Mike Reinfeldt Dec 2012
The Nashville Predators Ice Hockey
The Predators are the professional Ice Hockey team in Nashville and have come very close to making it to the Stanley cup finals. 2012 was almost their year. But we all know the next season is going to be even better! As the pride in the team continues to grow each year the interest in having a professional hockey as an intergral part of the life of the Nashville residents continues to grow.
RE/MAX Elite has close ties to the Predators as owner Carrie Zeier has a passion for hockey which has grown out of the involvement of her two boys who play for the Junior Predators. Carrie was previously married to former NFL quarterback Eric Zeier who also played for the Georgia Bulldogs college team.
2012 saw RE/MAX Elite become the Official Real Estate Company for the Predators and as a result The Ashton Real Estate Group now represents real estate interests in both The Titans and The Predators.
The Nashville Sounds Minor League Baseball
The Nashville Sounds are the minor league baseball team for the Music City. There has been much talk of building a new stadium as part of the rebirth of downtown Nashville but for now the plans seemed to have been shelved. The disappointment was felt throughout the community as the current stadium, although having a lot of sentimental appeal, really needs to be replaced ;)
