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 home search is so tiring, and sometimes stressful, that the thought of moving,  but FIRST having to scrub and paint the walls, refinish the floors, and do whatever else needs to be done, is just so overwhelming and unappeali...

We all know that the real estate business model is changing. Several years ago a broker fee might be 6-7% of the sale. Half usually went to the buyer's Realtor, and half generally went to the seller's listing agent. Our team has discovered that we have to be flexible on our selling fees, and we ...

This is a great list of things the seller can remember to do while waiting to close. I would add two things: Contact utility companies to turn off utilities, perhaps a day or two after closing, just to be on the safe side in case closing is delayed. Contact your homeowner's insurance company and ...
