About Andy Hodes

Chattanooga – the Scenic City – was a great place to grow up! It’s been our home since my great-grandfather, Abraham, chose Chattanooga after leaving Russia in 1905. For five generations, the Hodes have called Chattanooga home.

After earning my B.S. in Business Administration from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, my career took me away from my home town. I moved to South Florida and worked for a few years for a non-profit and then moved to New York City, where I met my beautiful wife, to start a career in Risk Management. Concurrently I earned an M.B.A from Baruch College – City University of New York. After a few more years away, I convinced my wife, who is from New York City, that Chattanooga is where we needed to be.

Returning to Chattanooga is the best thing I’ve ever done. It is simply the right place for me, not to mention that the rest of my family loves being here, too. While I was away, Chattanooga transformed from a polluted city without much to offer to the incredible Chattanooga that we’ve come to know and love. The beautiful mountains and waterfront scenery greet us at every turn. Downtown has transformed to a vibrant, user-friendly site of innovation centered around the majestic Tennessee River. It was a great homecoming many years ago and continues today!

Along with changing homes, changing careers was at the top of my list. I sought an opportunity to help other people and to have more control over my destiny. Real Estate was the perfect match that brought together my attention to detail, my love for helping people, and virtually no ceiling to my growth or success.

Currently, I am a licensed Real Estate Broker in both Tennessee and Georgia, a founding member of Keller Williams Realty – Chattanooga East, and consistently rank in the top tier of Chattanooga Realtors. In 2006, I founded The Scenic City Team, putting together the best real estate talent in Chattanooga that provides expert and personalized service to our clients throughout every transaction, I am proud of my team, their expertise and the way they put our clients first – just like me!

Melody and I have two sons, Micah and Jonah, who are also proud Chattanoogans like their Mom and Dad. Spending time with my family and friends is at the top of my list of favorite things to do. When not with my family or selling real estate, I volunteer in the community and take advantage of everything our scenic city offers.
