Nashville Real Estate Insiders


Whether you want to buy or sell a Nashville home – or seek to lease a Music City property for days or years, you need real estate professionals with passion and integrity.


Music City’s hot right now, but we’ve been buying, selling and managing Nashville residential properties for 20 years. Insider understanding with broad experience best serves your needs.


Relationships rely on communication. You want candor, clarity, and care from those handling your real estate investment. We promise all that and more With Sound City Realty.

Your house should feel like home.

It’s never just a house.

Those walls, windows, closets, appliances, floors and nooks hold – or will – memories, dreams and aspirations. Life unfolds there. Buyers may be in the market for the first time or entering a new life phase, needing to accommodate a growing family or wanting to downsize and simplify. Sellers may be shifting gears, too, relocating beyond Nashville, or aiming to maximize the time and investment they’ve made in their home. Sellers and buyers aren’t all that different. They have goals and questions about how best to achieve them. At the core, of course, they are people. People – and Nashville real estate – are our specialties.

Applying for rentals with confidence, even when you’re unsure your application will be approved.

A lease may last longer than your current romantic relationship! When looking to move to a new place I think most people jump too quickly at filling out an application, paying the application fee, and revealing very personal things about themselves in writing. That is why you should take this step with intention and caution just as you would any other long term relationship. The answers on this application will determine how prospective landlords and property managers see you and who you are.  And often it becomes a legal and binding addendum to your lease asking that you agree that you gave truthful and honest information. Things happen, people make mistakes with money, people have unexpected medical bills…but being honest is always best.

Fairs and Fried Oreos: The Tennessee State Fair and the Wilson County Fair

The South created “fried” Uncle Buds in my neighborhood has this great new sign and the other day it read “There is no northern fried anything.” So true, and I venture to say that fairs in any other part of the country only try to match our southern fried fair foods. Fried oreos, fried pickles, fried butter…yes butter. It’s a tradition of ours to stop by the Tennessee State Fair the second week of September as it often falls on our wedding anniversary. We have seen drag races, contortionists and even a live trained monkey that will demand a $5 bill before he will let you take his picture.

The Tennessee State Fair is held every year on, you guessed it, The Nashville Fairgrounds, and it’s a big one. I recommend bringing small bill denominations and ear plugs because of the race track. It’s a must for sight seeing and people watching. This year it runs from September 8-17, 2017.

Donelson – just a “Slip Up” from the City and Oh So Hip!

Andrew Jackson once called the area around The Hermitage “Slip Up” but it’s now called Hip D. It may be a far cry from the dairy farm it used to be, but Nashville’s best kept secret is Donelson in zip code 37214.

Just 7 miles from downtown riverfront, Donelson sits along the Lebanon Road corridor and has in 2016 realtor.com rated it the 15th most desirable zip code in the country. The lots have mature trees, often an acre or more, and prices are increasing slowly. Lately finding a property for sale in 37214 is akin to finding a needle in a haystack and when you do find them they are mostly ranch style homes and a few charming 1940’s-1950’s style cottages.

Finding community among The Nations

In 2003 Anthony and I bought a house on Elkins Ave that looked like an elf lived there. It had a hobbit type staircase, a rounded fireplace reminiscent of a Kiva in the southwest and was in shambles. We renovated it and rented it out for year. We were riding out the frenzy that was happening in Sylvan Park, the neighborhood west of I-440, between Charlotte and White bridge road. We thought Nashville had “topped out” in that neighborhood and we felt moving our investments into growing areas would be wise.

The game of short term rental permitting goes into overtime

Nashville’s mixture of culture, sports, music festivals, live music and industry conventions yields top dollar for lodging and hotels are booked solid. Travelers, looking for more than a room with a bed and a sofa often look for alternative lodging in Nashville’s over 3,000 legally permitted privately owned short-term rentals properties. The numbers tell a lot about the impact these STR’s have had on the Nashville economy. Matt Curtis, senior director of government relations for HomeAway highlighted a recent economic impact study commissioned by the company that says short-term rentals in Nashville provide an annual economic impact of $477 million — a figure that critics of the industry dispute.

Moving with kids

Back to School…might have you thinking harder than your kids.

We have two sons in middle school.  They attend Metro Nashville Public Schools. The schools in Nashville have been great to us and we continue to be impressed. When we left elementary last year we noticed other parents with kids deciding to sell their houses and move their families into other counties. One of the reasons is Davidson County middle schools are 5th-8th grade and middle schools in Wilson, Williamson and Sumner Counties are 6th-8th.
