Hite & Sharpe Announced as Award Recipient During January 25th Installation & Awards Reception
CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (Jan. 29, 2024) – Mark Hite & Steven Sharpe were named 2023 Realtors of the Year by fellow real estate professionals with Greater Chattanooga Realtors. The award was presented at the Association’s recent Installment & Awards Reception.
The Realtor of the Year award is given to a Realtor in recognition of their contributions to the real estate industry, the community, and the local and state Associations. Mark Hite and Steven Sharpe not only were active members of the Association but continuously and consistently participated in civic activities to better causes in Greater Chattanooga while encouraging and inspiring others to do the same.
Mark Hite served on nearly every local committee and twice served as President for Greater Chattanooga Realtors®. Mark was involved in several charitable organizations, including Cempa, Chambliss Center, Habitat, Rotary, Pink, CHI Memorial, Launch Pad, American Heart Association, and American Cancer Society. He was quick to jump in and help with his time, his experience, and his checkbook, contributing more than $200,000 annually to local nonprofits and did so with a kind heart and a mindset of community stewardship giving a hand up, not a handout.
Steven Sharpe served on nearly every local committee and was the 2023 Greater Chattanooga Realtors® President. Steven served as a state Director and also served on five state committees. In 2023, Steven was awarded Good Neighbor by TN Realtors, which propelled him to be in the top 10 finalists for the National Association of Realtors Good Neighbor Award for co-founding with his wife, Lindsey, Camp Horizon, a camp for kids with special needs. Steven was a Realtor Party Major Investor and was involved at the national level, serving as a Director and on the Leadership Edge Advisory Board.
“We will forever cherish the time we had with Mark and Steven and will value the impact they had on our association, our members, and our community,” said Kadi Brown, 2024 Greater Chattanooga Realtors® President. “Their void is felt by so many, but their memories and legacies will not disappear,” said Brown.
