Since 2003, we’ve been lucky to have helped over 350 families buy or sell a home in or around Nashville.
Here’s how we recommend getting started.
Initial Phone Consultation
We suggest scheduling a complimentary phone consultation. During this call, we will briefly discuss what you are looking for, your current living situation, and any other questions or concerns you may have. We are happy to help make an initial determination on what your dollar can buy so you can be as realistic as possible. If you are obtaining financing, we can recommend the smartest course for beginning the loan pre-approval process.
We understand that purchasing a home is a major life event and a very personal process, so our first meeting is designed to be as comprehensive and educational as possible. We will answer all of your questions to determine if we are the right fit for you. If we aren’t, we will gladly refer you to a respected agent with experience in your area of interest.
During our first meeting, the following topics should be discussed:
- What is most important to you
- Neighborhoods/areas of interest
- The homebuying process
- Strategies for successful negotiation
- Current market conditions
- How to mitigate any inevitable bumps that may arise
- How we work, and how a real estate professional is compensated
The expectations and protocols for both parties will also be discussed, as well as fiduciary responsibilities and how our clients formalize their relationship with an agreement designating us as their Realtor. By the end of the meeting, it should be clear whether or not we are a good fit.
The Particulars Of Our Team Structure
In 2014 Stephanie was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. As her disease progressed, she began encountering mobility challenges that made some aspects of selling homes a bit more challenging. These days, she works from her home office where she manages contracts, negotiations, and marketing while James can generally be found out in the field opening doors for buyers, attending inspections, and meeting with new prospects.
This arrangement has proven to be ideal. Our buyers enjoy the convenience and benefit of having two fully-licensed professionals on their side without enduring the hassles of a large team structure with unlicensed assistants and admins filing in the gaps.
Our Business Philosophies Include
- Maintaining a small and intimate clientele in order to provide personal service
- Treating colleagues as colleagues, not as competition
- Offering honest opinions and setting realistic expectations
- Engaging with clients who trust that our motives earnest
- Changing your mind about the stereotypes of real estate agents
We’ve never aspired to have our faces on billboards or to oversee a throng of underlings. We are proud to be independent, locally-owned brokers. We want to personally guide you through every aspect of your move. We will never pass you over to a junior/new agent. You will always deal with us.
Our mission isn’t to sell thousands of homes – though over the years we have sold hundreds of them. Our goal is simply to help two or three families each month. This boutique philosophy ensures that our clients receive the personal attention they deserve and it provides us work we can be proud of.
