MEET OUR TEAM

DARLENE BROWN

I’m a Chattanooga native and a longtime advocate and investor working particularly in the revitalization of downtown. Living & working downtown in the ‘90s before most would step foot in the city, I led the reinvention of Loveman’s as downtown’s first successful residential development. I saw a ghost town when I looked outside the window of my downtown residence in the evening, but I believed the city had potential. Instead of dark, empty streets, I saw a vibrant, energetic downtown where people lived, worked, and played. After 30 years in the real estate industry, I opened my own brokerage in the bottom level of Loveman’s and, with Ryan, have grown the brokerage to span 3 offices and over 140 agents. Over my 40+ year career, I have held virtually every office at Greater Chattanooga REALTORS including President and REALTOR of the year.

RYAN MAY

A love for my hometown and perhaps a genetic predisposition for the real estate industry compelled me to leave the corporate world and join Darlene to form the Darlene Brown Ryan May Team. After graduating McCallie School in Chattanooga and Samford University, I spent nearly 20 years in business, marketing and sales at Coca-Cola Bottling Company United. I returned home with a greater appreciation for our city, its unique beauty, opportunities and quality of life. I am invested in Greater Chattanooga Realtors serving on MLS Committee and the Board of Directors. Building relationships across the industry and city, and having a reputation for both ethical and profitable business growth has been a priority for me.

 

ALLISON HILLIS

As the trusted real estate advisor for my clients, I understand that selling and/or buying a home is complex and deeply personal. There is also a lot at stake financially and personally. This perspective on the process and the responsibility felt towards my clients drives me to truly be an expert at the job. I understand the market, the players, and all of the variables involved in a real estate transaction. I want to make sure you feel supported and that you have a trusted advisor by your side. 

DILLON MAY

I was born and raised in the Chattanooga area and have loved being able to work in the city that has always been my home. After graduating from Notre Dame High School, I attended the University of Georgia where I studied Economics. I moved home to Chattanooga to help with operations for The Southern Belle Riverboat where I earned my Master Captains License. I have previously worked in logistics, learning the importance of a quick response and being available to clients. I have been working in real estate since 2018 and specialize in the Southside, Northshore, and Downtown.
