"Lisa both sold our home and found us a new one to move into. We had wanted to downsize and move to Nashville from Brentwood. She had been showing us condos in mid-town. Ultimately she brought us a buyer (our house was not listed) and we closed within 3 hours of their arrival. She negotiated a lease back on our behalf for 2 months in order to have time to find our Nashville home. On a Sunday morning she called and asked if we could drive to West End Ave immediately. A lovely unit was about to go on the market but she had gotten advance notice. We met her there and bought the unit immediately! Would we use Lisa again? Or recommend her to others? Absolutely!"

"Working with Lisa was an amazing experience! I couldn't have asked for more or better help, or better experience in the area. This was my first purchase and I was so lucky to have Lisa to guide and help me along the way. We looked at many places and ultimately found an awesome spot that I absolutely love. If I ever decide to upgrade/move, I will absolutely be calling Lisa for her help once again! If you're looking for an awesome experience with a great realtor and an even better person in the Nashville area, look no further-Lisa is the best!"
"We just closed on a home in the Governors Club in Brentwood. Lisa was a great asset in our home search - we looked at about 10 homes together and a whole lot more on the internet - she was patient, attentive, responsive and very, very nice. She knows the Nashville area and gave us a good overview of all neighborhoods. My wife and I will call on her again and we certainly recommend her."
"Lisa sold our home and also helped us buy our new home. She was a pleasure to work with and went way above and beyond on our behalf. I trust her completely and would never think of working with anyone else in Nashville."
"Lisa knows her market and will deliver prospective clients properties of interest. She is thorough and keeps her clients well informed throughout the home buying process. Professional, approachable, and genuinely interested in keeping clients informed - you will not be disappointed!"
"I moved to Nashville from another state and have always been grateful for Lisa's persistent determination to locate a residence for me. I was on a time constraint and needed Lisa to be my eyes and ears in the current market. The major plus with Lisa is she listens to you and understands immediately what your shopping for in a residence. Also, I liked how frank and honest she was throughout the buying process. It saved me time as well as money."
"Lisa is the consummate real estate professional. She can be trusted to represent her clients in the most ethical way. My wife and I and our daughter have worked with Lisa and She's Great! Her knowledge of Nashville is unsurpassed and her "Sunshine" personality is infectious. I recommend Lisa to everyone I know, she's the best!"
"Lisa is the consummate professional. She is very connected in the Nashville metropolitan area, is highly regarded by other realtors, and knows her stuff. We found our condo through her and we would undoubtedly use her services in the future. Plus she is delightful on a personal level so it is time well spent to be with her."
Buyer & Seller
"Lisa was very easy and wonderful to work with in both buying and selling my home. She listens to your opinion then give you her expertise. She was quick to response to any questions or concerns you have. The whole process was stress-free by working with Lisa."
Buyer & Seller
"Lisa did a great job for our family in finding and purchasing (and later selling) a condo for use by our college-aged daughter. She was very good about giving us information as to the market and ultimate marketability of this asset for our given purpose."
"Lisa is an excellent, responsive, negotiator that has worked for me on the buying & selling of local Nashville real estate. Lisa is Nashville's condominium expert, and I wouldn't want anyone else on my side. Her integrity and knowledge is unmatched."
Buyer & Seller
"I have used Lisa to both purchase and to sell a property; most recently to list a property in 2016. She is very focused and efficient, knows the area and the market, and devotes her time and energy to the client and to closing the deal. She was very helpful in working with us long distance in providing recommendations for services as indicated for renovation and repairs."
