tn: Remarkable – Exceptional – Quintessential – AVAILABLE in Bellevue - 08/21/13 06:02 AM
816 Huntwood Place is now available Sometimes, conjuring the right words to capture the true essence of a property isn’t easy for this REALTOR . . . This house is one of those houses because it is simply magnificent in so many ways.
The minute the current owners walked in the front door in 2001, they KNEW this was the right house for them, and they have absolutely cherished every minute of their time savoring the privacy that the “Escarpment” behind offers, watching the deer play, and enjoying the easy one-level living the house so graciously provides.

tn: When "Better than new" really IS! - 06/30/13 12:16 AM
In all my 20+ years of selling real estate in Middle Tennessee, I have been the curmudgeon when it comes to being a believer that ANY house could be “Better than new.”
How can something – ANYTHING – that’s already been “used” be “Better Than New?”
Wouldn’t “Normal wear and tear”  make it less good than new?
With the appliances being “aged,” won’t they wear out faster?
How ’bout that old saying that “when you buy “used,” you’re inheriting someone else’s problems?
Today, I stand before you and declare that I am now a convert.
There IS such a thing as “Better … (3 comments)

tn: 5048 Lakeview Lane - Radnor Lake - Oak Hill - Nashville, TN 37220 #in - 04/16/12 05:36 AM
This is one of those neighborhoods into which you can't even buy yourself very often - RARE!
Lakeview is a quiet little street that deadends into the Radnor Lake property. It’s on the “Back side” away from all the noise  Sometimes, I get the opportunity to list a house for sale that REALLY excites me . . . and because I’m a Nature lover, 5048 Lakeview is a REAL winner.

This house has HUGE potential for expansion or can suit any family quite well as is just as it has this current owner. There’s no amount of flowery language I … (0 comments)

tn: 1013 Greenwich Park - Abbottsford, Green Hills, Nashville, TN 37215, $789,000 - 04/11/12 01:44 AM
Remember the cows on Abbott Martin? 1013 Greenwich Park – Abbottsford – Green Hills $789,000   
Having grown up in Nashville, I remember every summer driving daily from our house in Green Hills down Abbott Martin (To the Mall or Swim Club) and seeing the pastures, cows and horses on a magnificent farm very close to the mall. I have always loved that about Nashville . . . A city that’s not so big that you don’t have to go far to be in the country. Sadly, there was a barn fire years ago on that farm, and the owner was … (2 comments)

105 Timbercrest Ct is exceptional in SO many ways for the Buyer who has a thirst for getting away from it ALL while being just a short hop to the interstate and all things Nashville, TN. What’s most exciting to me about this house (other than the location) is the flexibility of the space . . . Everything from myriad “Play Spaces” . . . Places for retreating and relaxing . . . or exercising . . . or working (Home Office) . . . The lower … (2 comments)

tn: "The Emperor's New Clothes", A river in Nashville?, "The Real Estate Market is DEAD" . . . and other Local myths. #in - 03/19/10 12:43 AM
So . . . Have you read Hans Christian Andersen's Fairy Tale, The Emperor's New Clothes?
Wiki's page @ here's_New_Clothes
If not . . . Follow that link where you'll find the text. It's a great little story about the Power and sometimes foolishness of Leaders who can get so wrapped up their "Highness" that they create an environment that's murky and not real.
Like not being able to see the forest for the trees.
In this great story, everyone tells the Emperor what he wants to hear lest they be judged as being impure and foolish . . .
