Ryan Feisley

Senior Architectural Designer

 ryan@curatechatt.com

As a graduate of The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga (Interior Architecture and Design) Ryan started to understand that there is design in everything we see, with endless opportunities to learn. Throughout his studies he has learned that sometimes the most simplistic thoughts are what make your designs great. With a background in Real Estate and Construction, he has gained knowledge of the process these projects undergo, giving him the ability to understand the little details that make these dreams become reality. Ryan enjoys spending his personal time with his wife, Brittany, and Goldendoodle, Millie. He also enjoys visiting family in Ohio and going to the family farm. His favorite hobbies include: kayaking, woodworking, small groups, hunting, fishing, going to the beach (wife's favorite) and getting his hands dirty with random projects. Ryan says, “Design is like a coffee bean, sometimes you will get ground up, beaten down and exposed to great heat from individuals, but when it's all said and done, it will give those same individuals the energy and fulfillment they need.”

Jamie Leithart

Director of Sales

 Jamie@curatechatt.com

As soon as I was old enough to count cash, my brother and I had a fruit stand where we would sell vegetables we grew...Right out of college I started my career in finance, working at Wells Fargo briefly, and then JPMorgan Chase, progressing from teller, to Manager on Duty, and Private Client Banker. At Chase, I was named a National Achiever, an award only given to the top 5% of bankers across the company. Throughout the six years I worked in banking, I always had a passion for helping people with financial decisions and real estate. After obtaining my real estate license in 2016, earning top sales awards every year, I still felt that the most rewarding part of my job was creating lifelong relationships with my clients and their families.” Whether she is working with first time homebuyers or seasoned investors, Jamie’s specialty is helping buyers determine the best home to fit their lifestyle, guiding them in making a sound investment. She has learned to think outside the box for buyers, resolving questions they may not even know to ask. She says, “Custom homes really allow me to help buyers choose the perfect homesite and create a dream home that is tailored to their unique lifestyle.” Jamie loves spending time with her husband Jordan and her 5 month old girl, Ava, in her free time. Some of her interests are golfing, yoga, hiking trails, finding waterfalls, floating in the river, paddle boarding, trying new restaurants, traveling, and pretty much anything outdoors!
