Second Story Expands With New Hires

Tuesday, March 13, 2018
Second Story Real Estate Management, Chattanooga’s full-service property management group, expands with five new hires for 2018. "This change is a reflection of the rapid growth in Chattanooga due to local startups and established enterprises moving in, resulting in a higher need for residential and mixed-use commercial space," officials said.
 
“We are thrilled to add these new members to our company. Second Story is here to serve the Chattanooga community, and with our expanded team, we are confident we can better accomplish our goal of connecting your organization to the right space or buyer, and then simplify the process through technology,” says Tiffanie Robinson, founder and CEO of Second Story.
 
 
The new team members include Natalie Hostetler and Kelly Fitzgerald as the affiliate brokers, Amanda Leming as the director of residential development, Joe Viland as maintenance supervisor and Diane Wilson as the accounting clerk.
 
Natalie Hostetler has more than 13 years of progressive experience in corporate training, sales, commercial leasing and development. She has worked for three Fortune 100 companies since she graduated from University of Tennessee, Knoxville.
 
After getting her degree in architecture from Auburn University, Kelly Fitzgerald started her career in the design field and later expanded her position into commercial real estate. She continues in her role as founder and head of Society of Work, Chattanooga’s first shared workspace community.
 
Amanda Mayo Leming has spent the entirety of her professional career in property management, including managing high-value leasing in Savannah and Chattanooga. "Her experience proves her ability to thrive in retail, sales and management environments," officials said.
 
Joe Viland joins the team as the maintenance supervisor with an extensive background in quality control, facility management, contracting and safety. He is OSHA 30 certified and has held management positions for more than 10 years. 
 
After getting her accounting degree from UT, Chattanooga, Diane Wilson served as an accountant for CBL & Associates Properties for more than 18 years. She became a licensed realtor in 2007, but she continues to work on the accounting side of the business.
 
Second Story Real Estate Management launched in the fall of 2016 and, soon after, opened in its permanent home in the Co-Op on Cherry Street. Second Story manages the Fleetwood Building, The Tomorrow Building, The Edge, Lyerly Medical Pavilion II and many other properties.
