The Tennessee Titans
2012 is already looking like its going to be a good year for the Titans. With a successful draft and being able to retain many of the key players from the 2011 season, the growth of the team is now recognised as being amongst one of the early contenders for the next Super bowl!! As the year progress, the Titans will have the support of The Ashton Real Estate Group of RE/MAX Advantage as we all enjoy the success of national recognition not only in the world of sports with the Predators but also in the world of real estate.
Gary Ashton: The Official Real Estate Agent of The Tennessee Titans
As of August 2012, Gary Ashton and The Ashton Real Estate Group of RE/MAX Advantage, were named as the official real estate team for the Tennessee Titans and all the organization staff.
CEO: Mike Reinfeldt
In early February 2007 I received a request for information about the Nashville area real estate and the potential buyers name was Susan Reinfeldt the wife of Mike Reinfeldt. At that time I had no idea that this was about to become one of my most high profile clients to date. Mike Reinfeldt was in the final stages of interviewing for the General Manager position at the Titans organization.
New GM Moves To Nashville
Mike, at the time, was the Vice President of football operations at the Seattle Seahawks but had a long history with the Oilers and the owner Bud Adams. Mike was the front runner for the job and so it was time to for him and his family to start exploring the housing market in Nashville.
Once the Reinfeldts registered on the site for additional information, I called and talked to Mike's wife Susan Reinfeldt and she told me about the possibility of the move if Mike got the job. This started the process of narrowing down the search area based on price, schools, access to the Titans HQ in addition to a number of other factors.
In 2007 the Titans GM found a home with Gary Ashton as his Realtor
Once we had the area narrowed down, both Mike and Susan were using the site to find suitable homes, which I would then preview and take additional photographs for them to get a "virtual pictorial" tour of the homes.
After Mike had officially accepted the job, he moved down to Nashville and lived in temporary accomdation while taking on the task of taking over the responsibilities of the GM position. In addition Mike was gearing up for the draft and trying to find time to preview areas and subdivisions for Susan and the family before they all made a trip down from Seattle.
Eventually, the Reinfeldt family made a decision about the school and the area where they wanted to live, and once the kids were finished with school in Seattle, the whole family moved to the Nashville area.
"Moving a family cross country is a very stressful event especially when your husband is up to his ears at work and your kids are hectic as they complete their school year. The folks at The Ashton Real Estate Group made a tremendous effort to put my heart at ease. They worked round the clock to find a home that suited our needs and wishes. I believe Gary has a unique ability to uncover nuances about a family and he then uses this information to find a suitable setting. For this reason and many others the Reinfeldts will use the Ashton Real Estate Group for all their real estate needs." Susan Reinfeldt January 2008
The 2007-8 NFL Season
As the year has progressed the Titans have had ups and downs with heart breaking final minute and over time losses as well as injuries that seriously impacted the team but they stuck together and developed a reputation as having one of the most formidable and respected defenses in the NFL.
Now, as we enter the start of 2008, the Tennessee Titans have made it through to the Superbowl Playoffs.
The Super Bowl Playoffs
In the game against San Diego they are seen as the underdogs but as Mike Reinfeldt talked about on his radio show the Oilers were big under dogs and were not expected to win any of their playoff games against supposedly superior teams but they did!
Keep an eye out for the Titans...they may surprise the rest of the country this year..but not the Titans fans in Nashville Tennessee!
The Official Real Estate Agents of The Titans
To be able to be part of the Titans organisation as the official real estate agent is something that Gary Ashton has been working to achieve for some time now. In 2012 the association with Mike Reinfeldt and his family has continued and hopefully we will have some exciting news in the coming months.
