Hometown Realty gives East Tennessee the Homecourt Advantage

At Hometown Realty, we’re always looking for new and innovative ways to give you the homecourt advantage when it comes to real estate, using cutting-edge technology and innovative marketing. We are locally owned and actively involved in the community. The Tennessee fan base is one of the most passionate in the country. Vol nation is like no other. That’s why we’re thrilled to announce our recent NIL deal with Josiah-Jordan James, a talented scholar-athlete at the University of Tennessee.

For those unfamiliar with the term, “NIL” stands for “Name, Image, and Likeness,” and it refers to the right of individuals to control and profit from the use of their names and images. With the recent passing of the NIL law in Tennessee, college athletes can now profit from their likeness and name, and Hometown Realty is proud to be at the forefront of this new and exciting market.

Josiah-Jordan James is a name that has become well-known in the SEC. At the University of Tennessee, James has made a big impact on the court, helping to lead his team to success and earning recognition as one of the top players in the SEC. Even when battling injuries he is encouraging and cheering on his teammates from the bench.

So what makes James such a special player? One of the things that stands out about him is his versatility. At 6’6″, James has the size and athleticism to play multiple positions on the court. This allows him to impact the game in a variety of ways, whether he’s scoring, rebounding, or facilitating the offense.

Another thing that makes James stand out is his basketball IQ. He has a great understanding of the game and always seems to make the right play. Whether he’s passing the ball, taking a shot, or playing defense, James consistently makes smart decisions that benefit his team.

Finally, James has a competitive fire that sets him apart from other players. He is always looking to make a big play, and he never gives up, even when things aren’t going his way. This competitive spirit has helped him to make big plays in clutch moments and to become a leader on the team. His unselfish play demonstrates his commitment to ‘there is no “I” in team.’

What the Future Holds

Despite sporadic injuries, it’s clear that Josiah-Jordan James has a bright future ahead of him. He has already made a substantial impact in his collegiate career and will only continue to excel in his future endeavors on and off the court. 

As Ryan Coleman Founder of Hometown Realty mentioned, “We’re proud to be a part of this landmark moment in the real estate industry. Our NIL deal with Josiah-Jordan James is a testament to our commitment in supporting the University of Tennessee collegiate athletes. It was a pleasure to have the opportunity to work with Josiah. It was apparent he is a fine person of excellent character and an engaging personality. His parents are to be commended for the young man he has become. We can’t wait to see what the future holds for “Triple J”, and we’re excited to be a part of it.”
