Success Stories

Some of our favorite sales. We’d love to add your home (or future home) to the list!

The Tate House
Cross Plains, TN
circa 1850

This iconic home was off the market for over a century before our listing. Our marketing plan included professional video production and a 360-degree tour. Visit to see some of our marketing.

Braswell Home
Scottsville, KY
circa 1908

Built by a local lumberman during a boom time in this quaint Kentucky town. Our marketing included extensive research into the history of both the home and the city.

Victorian House
Smiths Grove, KY
circa 1875

We visited some historic homes in Tennessee with our buyers but they found the perfect match when visiting this bed and breakfast on the National Register of Historic Places. We negotiated a contract with the sellers and managed inspections and closing remotely while our buyers packed for their move from the west coast.

Mayor Meguiar’s Home
Portland, TN
circa 1906

Originally the home of the first mayor of the city, this home is within walking distance of downtown dining and attractions. Our marketing attracted interest nationwide and multiple offers.

Cumberland Telephone & Telegraph
Hopkinsville, KY
circa 1903

A rare example of Dutch renaissance architecture in southern Kentucky, this unique building was captured by night riders during the Black Patch Tobacco Wars. Our sellers worked hard on renovations and we helped them get multiple offers and top dollar for their property. Visit to see some of our marketing.

Sylvan Park Cottage
Nashville, TN
circa 1928

This renovated cottage with a huge detached studio made for an attractive listing in a hot neighborhood of Nashville.
