Chattanooga

CHATTANOOGA



Chattanooga is a small city located in Hamilton County, Tennessee. It has everything a big city offers except for over-population, over-crowding, and traffic jams. While the city itself has a population of 155554 (per census 2000) when you include the metropolitan area the population is 465,161. While most reside in the suburbs, rural living can be found within 10 minutes in any direction from Chattanooga.

Hamilton County borders the Georgia counties of Catoosa and Walker. Chattanoogans benifit from this convenience. While there is not a Tennessee State income tax the sales tax is higher than in Georgia. So, many people that reside in Tennessee head to Georgia (Ringgold, Fort Oglethorpe, or Rossville) to shop. On the other hand, many people that work in Chattanooga live in Georgia because the property taxes are slighlty less. Click here to see Property Taxes.

Chattanooga has traditionally touted its tourist attractions, including the Tennessee Aquarium (A freshwater and as of May 2005 a saltwater aquarium), caverns, and developments along the Tennessee River. In the downtown area are both the Creative Discovery Museum (a hands on children's museum dedicated to science, art, and music), the IMAX 3D Theatre, and the Hunter Museum of Art (which also completed a recent expansion). Chattanooga is also home to the Lake Winnepesaukah Amusement Park & SoakYa WaterPark. Just a mile outside of downtown Chattanooga is the Chattanooga Zoo at Warner Park. The red-and-black painted "See Rock City" barns along highways in the U.S. Southeastern states are to attract visitors to the Rock City attraction in nearby Lookout Mountain, Georgia. Incidentally, Chattanooga means "rock coming to a point" in the Creek Indian language (most believe it refers to Lookout Mountain or the rock outcroppings thereon). Other attractions in the Lookout Mountain area are Ruby Falls, an underground waterfall, and the Lookout Mountain Incline Railway, a steep railway which rises to the top of the mountain. Near Chattanooga, the Raccoon Mountain Caverns in Lookout Valley hold a number of sightseeing and family fun opportunities. The Ocoee River, host to a number of events from the 1996 Atlanta Olympics offers several recreational activities such as Rafting, Kayaking, Camping, Hiking and Biking.

What people are saying about George...

If you are moving locally or from out of state, do yourself the biggest favor ever and engage the services of George Kammerer. George's knowledge of the area is unsurpassed, and guided us to an area that we described we were interested in living and suited our specific needs. Since we were moving from out of state, the timing was critical that we could coordinate our time and George's to the maximum. He also is remarkably quick to respond to any email or text that you submit. He is the first realtor [we've used] that truly wants his clients to be happy! He asks questions that are relevant to finding the house that you expect to find within the price range that you specify....George does not "push" nor does he "fast talk" you into making a hasty decision. He is a very patient man and has a background that can assist you in answering questions you may have while reviewing a home. I believe my husband and I are "sort of picky" and we would rate George a 5+ in every area shown above. Ruth VonDreau
We worked with George in selling our home (which was a great experience), so having him help us buy our next home was a no-brainer. He was always available to us, and would hunt down information we felt important in the listings we were viewing. His expertise in the area, especially Chattanooga, was very helpful and allowed us to finally choose a home for our family. We would highly recommend his services. Ralph & Jennifer Hairsine
We visited Chattanooga on 2 separate occasions to look at properties with George. He gave us 100% of his time and attention and knew exactly what we were looking for in a home. We trusted him so much in fact that we ended up purchasing a home that we never got a chance to visit in person. It came on the market just as we were leaving Chattanooga, but George visited the listing, took pictures and inspected the property. He was certain it was the home for us and we trusted him. George went above and beyond what we expected by visiting the home to make sure that it was properly maintained for 3 months while we prepared to relocate from Nevada. He even turned on the air conditioner for us once the weather warmed up to keep the house comfortable. We are happy to have met him and now be able to call him a friend Jacquie Brown
