Nashville TN is an exciting city with many types of restaurants, several colleges and universities, and many styles and prices of housing. We love living and working in Nashville, and invite you to email or phone us with questions about living in the area, or just to talk about your future plans. We have a diverse clientele; some are investors who want to buy more properties; some are investors who want to sell their portfolio; some are seniors who want to downsize; some are relocating executives who need a home for entertaining and living comfortably. We have bank customers whose foreclosure & REO properties we list and sell. We never rush our clients to make a decision, as we work on your schedule, not ours. We can refer you to private lenders, mortgage lenders, and other vendors in the area. And, of course, we never accept a fee for referral to a vendor or lender. Even though vendors come highly recommended to us, or we have had personal experience with their work, you should always interview them and get other references and come to your own comfort level with them before contracting.

As we know, staging, or organizing a home's furnishings to show off its best features, can take ordinary and ugly spaces and turn them into beautiful and appealing places.   Savvy sellers know that in this market, they MUST get their home show ready to sell.  By watching shows like HGTV, they hav...

My friend, Peggy Elliott, is an inspiration.  She is housebound, but uses her creativity to make Rag Tag Critters.  They are unique; you won't find them at Wal-mart. She has been featured in this blog. Check it out. Sarah
