    Testimonials

    Collin Rogers is the best realtor I have ever worked with. He is very knowledgeable of the Chattanooga Valley and the surrounding areas. Collin was more concerned with what I could afford, wanted, and needed, more than he was concerned with the commission he’d make off the sale. This wasn’t just a transaction to him, but building a relationship with his client. Collin Rogers is Partner with Barry & Diane Evans | Evans & Friends
