I might add, if you have not been to the Nashville area in some time or at all, you are in for a very pleasant surprise. Nashville is now among the top growing cities in the US, and Williamson County (Brentwood and Franklin) is the 7th wealthiest county in the US. Come enjoy live music, home to Country Music, art museums, historic houses, and Civil War battlefields.


Looking forward to meeting you in March! David Wright

I am a CLHMS and also one of the founding members of the Institute for Luxury Home Marketing and feel it is one of the best associations for Luxury Real Estate.

Thank you, Joyce Marsh, for recommending the Institute. If you have anyone in Central Florida wanting to move to the next level or needing this course, please send them to Tennessee. I am sure they will thoroughly enjoy their visit. Plus, can you imagine the referral system they could build from here. So many Nashville, Brentwood, and Franklin residents buy summer homes in Florida.

David, thank you for sharing this class information. I hope this course will be well attended. I remember Sharon Simms who used to be active here on ActiveRain as well.

Thank you, Silvia. The class has a cutoff 75 people and we are more than halfway there with registration. I have looked up both Sharon & Tami on ActiveRain and saw neither one very active. Sharon has a fascinating background and has also taught the luxury home market classes.
