After 15 years in a Franklin home this couple is grateful that The Grumbles Team SOLD their home and helped them buy a new home in Stags Leap Subdivision.
They met The Grumbles Team via their premier real estate search engine website and once they met and discussed the options for selling a home and buying a more upscale home they decided that Mike was the person for the job. We searched high and low for the right house for them and since they loved the outdoors a home with a pool in Stags Leap was perfect for them. We got the COMING SOON home under contract and then went to work selling their home in Franklin's Cannonwood subdivision. With a "Take-Away" marketing strategy we sold the home in the first weekend at above the asking price, and helped them navigate four offers. Let The Grumbles Team yield these results for you. Visit us at www.FranklinTNRealEstateGuide.com and watch the video in the link above and see the photos of the home they sold and purchased below. Mr. and Mrs Fancher Aug 2014
"Mike was very professional and I am very pleased with the service he provided during the process of selling my home. I would highly recommend him. He was always available to answer any questions or concerns I had and exceeded my expectations." Mrs. Lent Oct 2014
"I have and will recommend Mike Grumbles and his team of agents as they did what they promised. They priced the home to sell and in 8 days brought in multiple offers and a successful sale." Mr. Gorham's June 2012
"Couldn't be happier with Mike as our agent. We found out about him through word of mouth. He became our realtor after giving the first one 6 mos. to sell our house without success. We then were able to sell and buy another in aprox. 2 mos. We would call him first next time." Mrr and Mrs. Long Sept 2011
"We moved from out of state & rented a home through The Grumbles Team. We were astounded by their character & integrity through the process. Their level of personal service is unlike any we've experienced. After all, a rental is not exactly a million dollar transaction, but that didn't matter to them. They treated us like their most valuable client & made the process very easy. They exceeded our expectations on every level. The Grumbles Team is our real estate partner for life!"

Franklin by Pricepoint:
Franklin is made up of two school districts, The Franklin Special School District (FSSD) with grades K-8 and Williamson County Schools with K-12. Based on the location of the home you choose in Franklin your children could be zoned into FSSD and that means you would incur an additional tax for FSSD schools. The FSSD lines currently split some subdivisions so make sure to clarify the exact address when verifying school zoning. Regardless of the zoning under 8th grade, they all attend a Williamson County High School and in Franklin that would be Franklin High School, Centennial High School, or Independence High School.
In addition to the public school system in Franklin there are many private schools offerings including Battle Ground Academy, Franklin Christian Academy, Franklin Classical School, Grace Christian Academy, and St. Matthew Catholic School. Beyond this there are many other choices for private learning institutions in Williamson County outside of Franklin.
