Work with the best.

There are plenty of reasons why we’re often referred to as the best realtors in Chattanooga. We’d love to show you, too. Since 1982, the Kelly family has grown Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Realty Center into the residential real estate firm that home buyers and sellers trust. We’re pleased to represent clients as their housing needs evolve over the years—from first-time home buyers to expanding families and later empty nesters. Repeat business and referrals continue to tell us that our clients appreciate the experiences that we provide. 

We also understand the unique aspects of home buying and selling during the COVID-19 pandemic. Our Realtors combine virtual tours with sanitizing best practices and deep knowledge of each community to safely move Chattanooga.

Local roots. Global reach. As part of the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices network, we bring unmatched quality to every transaction. Whether you’re moving across town or across the nation, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Realty Center is ready to help you with your next move.

At a time when things seem to move lightning fast, solid relationships matter. We are your Forever Agents in Chattanooga.

Meet our Leaders.

Our regional Brokers are talented listeners and problem solvers. Coupled with decades (120 combined years) of moving Chattanooga, our team is equipped to represent our clients to the fullest.

Byron Kelly

Byron's parents, Ben and Karen, had him working in Real Estate offices for as long as he can remember. He credits his excellent sense of direction to having been on nearly every street of Hamilton County by the age of 12 for one appointment or another. With two full decades as a broker now under his belt, he strives to keep civility and professionalism as top priorities for his Realtors and this firm. North Chattanooga is home base for Byron and his family to explore the Scenic City.

Amy Kuehnel


Experience in Real Estate started at an early age for Amy. Growing up in a family of investors and entrepreneurs, there was always buying and selling activity, meetings with contractors and developers, designs being drafted, and negotiation skills being sharpened. She found the industry very intriguing, so eventually left her 15 year career as an educator.  In 2007 she obtained her Affiliate Broker's license, followed by her Broker’s license in 2022.

Amy is a life-long Chattanooga resident, currently calling the community of Signal Mountain her home, where she enjoys volunteering, hiking, gardening, and is a devoted leader for the Signal Mountain campus.
