Nashville's 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 with the introduction of Heisman Trophy winner Marcus Mariota, the franchise quarterback and client of The Ashton Real Estate Group.
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.
2008 had been a great start for the Titans and in particular the outstanding talent of Cortland Finnegan. Cortland was an RE/MAX 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 was sold in Annandale.
2012 saw the departure of Mike Reinfeldt from the job as COO but we would like to thank Mike for assisting with the involvement of The Ashton Real Estate Group in becoming the Official Real Estate Team for the Titans, starting in 2012. We all wish him well in his next endeavor 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. 2015 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 integral part of the life of the Nashville residents continues to grow.
In 2017 The Predators did make it to the Stanley Cup finals and unfortunately lost in Game 6 but some of the scenes show that Nashville is a hockey town!
RE/MAX has close ties to the Predators as RE/MAX Elite owner in Nashville Carrie Zeier has a passion for hockey which has grown out of the involvement of her two boys who play hockey. Carrie was previously married to former NFL quarterback Eric Zeier who also played for the Georgia Bulldogs college team. Eric and Carrie are now divorced.
2012 saw RE/MAX Elite become the Official Real Estate Company for the Predators. The Ashton Real Estate Group of RE/MAX Advantage now represents real estate interests in The Titans.
The Nashville Sounds Minor League Baseball
The Nashville Sounds are the minor league baseball team for the Music City. There was much talk of building a new stadium as part of the rebirth of downtown Nashville. The new stadium is now built and fully operational and RE/MAX is now a major sponsor of the Sounds team.
RE/MAX Advantage and The Predators and Titans
At The Ashton Real Estate Group of RE/MAX Advantage, our agents are in full support of the Titans and the Predators. This is not only because of our genuine interest in the success of our home teams but also because of the media interest that is associated with having a successful team and how this helps with the nations perception of our city. Carie Zeier, the owner of RE/MAX Elite is known as one of the strongest supporters of the Nashville Predators and can be seen at nearly every home game! A successful team helps to "sell" Nashville which in turn sells real estate!
