nashville tn: Making Your Home More Energy Efficient WITHOUT Burning A Hole In Your Pocket - 06/21/13 03:34 AM
Making Your Home More Energy Efficient
WITHOUT Burning A Hole In Your Pocket
You don’t have to take out a second mortgage in order to considerably cut your utility costs . Yes, ET Solar Panels are sweeping roof tops across the country and although they pay for themselves after several years its still a HUGE chunk of dough to cough up. I’m the kind of person who likes to see immediate reductions in my costs rather than wait a few years in order to see a value! So if you aren’t in the position to upgrade to revolutionary green technology … (0 comments)

5 Ways to Get Your Nashville Home Ready to Sell in 2012

Well, first of all, HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!  So far it's off to a great start, but I'm only three days in :P
I am not doing New Year's Resolutions this year.  As I said on Facebook, "I'm entering into 2012 with goals of living passionately in both my personal and professional life. I want to learn more about myself and the loved ones around me. I want to let go of fear. I want to pursue things that I have not previously been brave enough to … (3 comments)

nashville tn: PBR Stands For Something Other Than Pabst Blue Ribbon: Professional Bull Riding! - 09/04/09 01:55 PM
Okay, I was born in Nashville, TN.  I was raised right in the heart of Davidson County (Nashville).  I have heard a lot and seen a lot related to Western and Country Music and the whole lifestyle of it. 
Now let me say this before I start my story... My parents were both loving and supportive and generous, providing me lessons in a variety of athletics, art and music.
Let's just say that my parents didn't exactly raise me to appreciate the finer points of being a "cowgirl" in the "big city" and, while they did love that I excelled at my … (1 comments)

nashville tn: A Tribute to My Loving Grandmother - I Will Miss You! - 02/20/09 03:55 AM
I lost my last living grandparent on Wednesday.  (February 18, 2009) She was my grandmother and I loved her.  She lived to the ripe old age of 94.  Her name was Cornelia Stanford Lowe.  She was a retired school teacher. 
Let me tell you a little bit more about my grandmother, whom I affectionately called Mamaw.  (please say that word in the most southern way possible, and really draw out the "aw" part of it at the end for emphasis!) She stood all of 5' 1" (or was it 2") - and was a real example of several things to me.

nashville tn: Buyer Incentives May Help Your Nashville Home Sell Faster! SHOW ME THE MONEY!!! - 01/08/09 05:23 AM
If you are currently selling or thinking of selling your home in the Nashville / Middle Tennessee area, then you probably know it's ONE TOUGH MARKET OUT THERE!!! Inventory is HIGH - and the need to make your house stand out from the crowd is greater than ever! 
It IS POSSIBLE, though, to attract more buyers to your property if you entice them with extra Buyer Incentives.  These aren't always cheap and you may just prefer to lower the price of your house.  But here goes!
Pay some closing costs.  If you haven't heard the news, the economy is rough … (4 comments)

nashville tn: Why Some Nashville Homes Just Aren't Selling! - 01/08/09 04:41 AM
We have all heard the news that the Real Estate Market is slow.  And in Nashville, TN and Middle Tennessee, we are having some trouble with that reality!
You see, a Buyer's Market is a rare thing in Nashville.  As the Seller of a home here - and especially if you have been a Seller several times - you are accustomed to being in the driver's seat!  Calling the shots, negotiating the highest price for your home.
Let me switch gears for a moment - hmmmm, maybe I should go with this whole driving analogy here!

In the mind of most … (1 comments)

nashville tn: So I Switched Real Estate Brokerages... Let Me Explain - 01/07/09 04:40 AM
A couple of months ago, I got the word.  Prudential Woodmont Realty was going to be "consolidating" offices.  We had four, and we were going down to one.  The selected office of choice was going to be in Brentwood.
Now, I was a part of the Green Hills office.  And absolutely loved it there.  Loved the people, the owners, everything. And I really do MISS everybody!!!
But the Real Estate Market in Nashville and Middle Tennessee has been slow.  There is not a lot of argument about that.  It has, of course, been slow nation-wide.  The good side of it is that Nashville has … (4 comments)

nashville tn: Bricktops Restaurant in Nashville on West End! - 12/28/08 02:58 PM
I have had the pleasure of dining with friends and family on several different occasions at Bricktop's on West End in Nashville.
Although I sorely miss Houston's which was a Nashville staple for years, Bricktop's offers great American cuisine for around $20/person (lunchtime that is) - expect to pay a bit more for dinner. 
I have not been disappointed with anything I have tried at Bricktop's, from the fish tacos to the ribs!  Great chicken salad as well, plus a killer key lime pie and also I have heard that "The Chocolate Chip" is also amazing - a chocolate chip cookie … (1 comments)

nashville tn: The Trees of Christmas at Cheekwood Botanical Gardens in Nashville! - 12/28/08 02:07 PM
Since I was a little girl growing up in Nashville, TN, I have visited Cheekwood Botanical Gardens time and time again!  As the daughter of an avid gardener, I spent many a spring, summer, fall AND winter day on the beautiful grounds of the Cheek Family Estate. 
From hunting Easter eggs to having a surprise 18th birthday party there, Cheekwood has always been a place of happy activities - they always manage to have a lot to do and see throughout the year.
It was a real treat on December 23rd to be able to go with my Mom and … (1 comments)

Here are the closings for November 2008's Downtown Nashville Condo Real Estate Market!  Only two closings in November - not so good still.  I think we are going to see some better results for December, but if you are hoping to sell your downtown condo any time soon, think low low pricing to get it sold!

nashville tn: California Pizza Kitchen Comes to Nashville's Green Hills! - 12/13/08 09:11 AM
So I FINALLY went to California Pizza Kitchen for lunch a couple of weeks ago.  When I had seen it previously, it was always packed out and I HATE to wait for a seat!  Anybody else out there with me on that one?
Anyway, I had a Thai Crunch Salad, which is probably not the "right" or "best" thing to get there.  Here is the description of it - Shredded Napa cabbage, chilled-grilled chicken breast, julienne cucumbers, edamame, crispy wontons, peanuts, cilantro, julienne carrots, red cabbage and green onions tossed with a lime-cilantro dressing. Topped with crispy rice sticks and Thai … (0 comments)

nashville tn: Asian Fusion the Pei Wei Way - Nashville's Green Hills Newest Asian Food! - 12/13/08 08:50 AM
I think that once upon a time I ate at a Pei Wei Restaurant in Southern California.  But this Asian restaurant has also made its appearance in the Middle Tennessee area - I know there is one in Brentwood and Murfreesboro, most likely in other areas as well.
The Pei Wei that I am writing about is in the new Hill Shopping Center, just across the way from Whole Foods in Green Hills.
To me, it's just a standard Asian fusion type of restaurant and you can get something quick for around $10 in Nashville, which is nice. 
I remember that … (1 comments)

nashville tn: Looking for Indian / Pakistani Food in Nashville's Green Hills? - 12/13/08 08:39 AM
It is an ABSOLUTE PRIVILEGE to write this blog on Shalimar!!!
Shalimar is an Indian Restaurant in the Green Hills area of Nashville, Tennessee.  I have been eating at Shalimar for well over ten years and am totally in love with the place!
One of my Indian friends swears that it is actually more of a northern Indian / Pakistan type of food place - me, I wouldn't know the difference!  All I know is that they regularly serve up some of the yummiest ethnic food in Nashville!
My favorites include, and I usually get, chicken masala or chicken tikka masale, … (0 comments)

Affectionately known as "Dragon Park", Fannie Mae Dees Park in the Vanderbilt area of Nashville, TN, has been delighting children and art lovers alike for over 25 years!  Located at 2400 Blakemore Ave. in the 37212 zip code, Dragon Park is a small open air park with a playground and a huge mosaic dragon!
If you look closely on the dragon, a mosaic masterpiece, you will see loads of characters, from animals to people to magical sea creatures!  It was the creation of Pedro P. Silva in the late 70s and was spruced up in 1999.  As a child, I can … (4 comments)
