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.
The real estate market is extremely competitive right now in the Nashville, Middle Tennessee area.  That seems like a good problem to have, right?

Nashville has been chosen as one of the first cities in the US to have high speed Internet connectivity provided by Google Fiber.

Scams are all around us, and one of the more distressing for a lot of consumers and Realtors these days is the con artist who spots a vacant listing which is for sale, runs a ‘for rent’ ad with extremely cheap rent, then disappears when he/she gets the deposit and first month’s rent from the uns...

If you are selling your home, you might want to change to payment by check when you put the home on the market. You will need to call your bank to check the procedure to stop auto drafting, and also call the customer service number of your lender to let them know.   The reason to change is that, ...
My yardman made his last visit to my house last week, until spring. He raked up most of the last remaining leaves, and the trees are almost bare. Homes can look forlorn in the winter, and not as appealing as in the spring or summer.  When looking at homes in winter to buy, buyers should try to e...
We know that there are many seniors who continue to live for many years in the same home where they have raised a family.  A lot of these homes started out being modest in value. But in the last few years, city growth and new construction have made many properties much more valuable.     If you a...

As in other markets, we have ‘hot’ areas in our area where properties sell quickly.  Even older properties which have no modern updating can sell quickly because of the location and the possibility of teardown or subdividing.     We recently sent a ‘just sold’ postcard to an area around one sold...
We have seen it happen. Our buyer walks into a gorgeously renovated (flipped) home, maybe in an older, up and coming part of town, and falls in love. Their offer is accepted, and they can’t wait to close and move in. We hope the romance with the home continues for as long as they live in the home...
