President / Broker
Kinard Realty was founded by Bob and Dixie Kinard in 1974 with one office in Dalton GA. Kinard Realty affiliated with the International Brand Coldwell Banker in 1982 and has been a loyal member of the franchise since. Coldwell Banker Kinard Realty expanded into the Fort Oglethorpe and Ringgold market areas in the late 1980’s and expanded into the Calhoun market in 1999.
Longtime team members Mike Maret, Bill Blackwood and John Thomas formed Georgia One Realty, Inc. and acquired Coldwell Banker Kinard Realty in 2007. Continuing the tradition of the Kinards, Maret, Blackwood, and Thomas navigated the company through the “Great Recession” of 2008-2011 and the company now has over 80 agents company-wide covering the I-75 corridor between Chattanooga and Atlanta. The Calhoun office moved into a new office location in 2013 and an office expansion of the Ringgold office is planned in 2015 as well as future growth opportunities in the Bartow County area.
