Real Estate Scorecard names Tellico Village 2014 Bliss Award Winner for Happiest Community of the Year

LOUDON, TENN. (February 7, 2014): Local active-adult community, Tellico Village earned the 2014 Bliss Award for Happiest Community of the Year after Real Estate Scorecard visited 241 communities in the Southeast and polled its residents.

Volunteer spirit is key to what makes the 7,000 residents of Tellico Village so upbeat, says the award announcement. Villagers who help oversee more than 200 clubs and organizations, three golf courses, three fitness centers and a yacht club run the community.

“This large master-planned community is one of the friendliest neighborhoods Real Estate Scorecard has come across,” the release by Real Estate Scorecard said.

Real Estate Scorecard asked over 490 property owners to post reviews of Tellico Village to its website. The organization summarized some of the responses in a recent press release:

“The community and residents have successfully planned to integrate new residents into the life of the community. It is impossible to live here without making great friends, and enjoying a wide variety of athletic cultural and volunteer activities.”

“This place is a true treasure; we are torn between bragging about it and wanting to keep it to ourselves.”

“THE PEOPLE make Tellico Village the happiest place!!! They are friendly and helpful. It doesn’t matter if you have a big house or a small one folks are welcoming.”

Margie Casey, CEO and founder of Real Estate Scorecard will be at Tellico Village March 23-25 to present the award. She visits hundreds of communities in the Southeast each year and is an industry leader of online reviews for master planned communities in the region.
