Serendipity Sundays - Millions of Records The weather was rainy and cold so it was a perfect day to visit the Country Music Hall of Fame. Others thought the same thing and the lines were long. This was a very enjoyable day learning about the roots of country music and reminiscing and singing along with some great musical talents. This is a must-do if you are ever in the Nashville area and located downtown near great restaurants, the Bridgestone Arena and many famous Honky Tonks, Funny that many of the songs referred to Nashville and Honky Tonks.

I learned that a gold re...

Spring Forward 2018 | Do It Before You Go to Bed Saturday NightWhen Do You Set Your Clocks Forward? This weekend we again will set our clock ahead to start Daylight Saving Time. It happens on Sunday morning at 2:00 AM, March 11, 2018. There is much controversy as to whether this practice should be continued or whether it has outlived its effectiveness. It gets light later in the morning and the light extends into the evening hours which some people think does not need to be messed with. Most of the states and many foreign countries participate in this practice. Those of us in Tennessee, we will be setting our clocks an hour ahead this weekend. It happens every year on the second Sunday in March and we go back to standard time on the first Sunday in November.I really like Daylight Saving...

Serendipity Sundays - Spring Signs The weather is jockeying with us and dipping into the 20's and 30's at night and getting into the 60's and 70's during the days. The trees and flowers are getting the signals that it's time for spring and the brilliant sunshine is confirming it. There have been so many warmer days in the last couple of weeks that I have seen several people out in shorts and flip flops. The first flowers to emerge are generally the crocus and hyacinths. Then the daffodils and forsythia follow and I know spring is on the way. We will not have 6 more weeks of winter like Punxsutawney Phil said. The redbuds and Bradford pear trees are blooming and so are the Japanese Cherry trees. Another indication that spring is coming is the activity in the real estate market. It is bus...

Do You Have a Safety Plan in Place?Severe weather passed through Clarksville this past weekend on Saturday night. A couple of neighborhoods suffered severe damage and several homes were declared condemned. Dozens more had damage and 3 of my homes under construction got some amount of damage. Thankfully there were very few injuries reported in the storm area and nobody was killed. A few people were taken to area hospitals as a precaution.Part of the reason that people stayed safe is that they listened to the warnings and took action to get in from the storms. For years, the National Weather Service has asked everyone to have a plan and to identify a safe place in their homes to ride out the storm. When the warnings were being broadcast on weather alerts, local radio and TV stations, peop...

 Reaching Championship StatusTo be a champion you have to think like one. Once you think like one, you have to act like one and do the things that bring you to championship level. That is what being a professional in the real estate business means to me. It is not a hit and miss attitude; it is a commitment and a mission. I will not do it any other way. I am proud of the years I have served and as long as I engage in this industry, I will deliver the best I can. The winter market hasn't changed much from what was happening in the summer and fall. This means that there has not been much quiet time to plan for the future because the future is now. We will glide right into the spring market. To keep my momentum going means to stay focused and keep my systems working, functioning and going ...

What People Like about Hickory WildHickory Wild continues to be a highly requested neighborhood and community in the northeast part of Montgomery County. It is a well planned neighborhood of single family homes only. There is plenty of common area and community space where residents can gather and ride bikes or walk safely. The subdivision's playgrounds typically have lots of children using them with moms and dads sitting close by chatting and visiting with their neighborhoods.I particularly like the promenade entrance that greats you the moment you turn into Hickory Wild.  Detail and planning is even realized in the matching, decorative street signs and street lights. The bell towers ring and are tastefully surrounded by landscape and trees. Underground utilities, natural gas and city ...
