Nashville has been chosen as one of the first cities in the US to have high speed Internet connectivity provided by Google Fiber. This internet speed is to be about 100 times the speed of an average internet circuit, at a lower overall cost.  Google, as you would expect, is a data driven company ...

So you’re unhappy with the results? Were your expectations too high? Could it be that you expected “Luxury” but were only willing to pay “Discount” prices? Were you CLEAR with your intentions and desires relative to the purchase? How much research did you do before purchasing? Did you study the f...

What do big fish do? They eat smaller fish. In the case of a mega-fish like Zillow, they can gobble up all kinds of fish (even other fishees like Trulia). The problem is, they’ve bought most of their competition, but those pesky MLS’s and Brokers (who “own” the data) are getting cranky about synd...

So you have a problem, and you want to hire a Professional to fix it. Let’s say you notice a 1/2″ crack in the exterior wall of your house from the earth to the second floor. It’s a stair step crevice that you’ve never noticed before, so you’re thinking something happened recently. Not wanting th...

Belle Meade Homes for sale - 6 homes sold in February of 2015 at an average price of $1,021,000, during the bitter cold and ice storms. In my opinion, this is a sign that luxury home sales in Nashville will be very active this year. 6 Belle Meade homes sold in February of 2015 compared to 10 sale...

So often, our most destructive opponent is ourself. Yep! Self-sabotage reigns supreme when we let it roam unrestrained. Don’t you hate when you do something “STUPID” after which you say to self: “I know better!”? We can all imagine 1,000 reasons NOT to do something . . . We can find plenty to wor...

Back in the day . . . Seafarers ALWAYS Charted their intended course of travel before leaving port. Nowadays, the equipment is far more sophisticated, yet the savvy most travelers still chart their courses before leaving port. Whether it be by Car, Boat/Ship, Plane, Train, Bicycle, Hitch-hiking, ...

When a wild animal gets caught in a trap . . . he’ll panic and struggle so vigorously that the cause of death is exhaustion . . . or he’ll leave a body part in the trap and subsequently bleed to death. Morbid but true. In a soccer match, the easiest way to get the ball from an opponent is to appl...

Green Hills condos are always in high demand, but this spring should bring a whole new level to the sellers market. During the month of February when everything was iced in and frozen, 9 Green Hills condos closed. The Nashville MLS is showing that 24 condos are available for sale, but in reality,...

Something a little different today! Every so often, we all could use a taste of validation and encouragement . . . so I thought I’d share 2 of my favorites. “The engineer Buckminster Fuller is often cited for his use of trim tabs as a metaphor for leadership and personal empowerment. In the Febru...

Can there be too many choices? A long-standing comment about Nashville is that there’s a church on darn near every corner. Nowadays: “There’s a new BANK or Pharmacy or Restaurant sprouting out of the ground every day (It seems).” How do all of these businesses survive? Where do they get their cus...

The short answer? They DON’T! Trends show us not much more than the natural ebb and flow of Market Dynamics. These flows “trend” up or down and give the “experts” fodder for proselytizing about the significance of the cycles . . . and their opinion of the health of the market. Yes! The ONLY semi-...

Uh-Oh! Starbucks’ good intentions have been derailed by inappropriate action. Starbucks will stop writing ‘Race Together’ on your cups now The most intriguing things I’ve heard about this PR fiasco is their dismissal of the whole thing simply by quipping “let me assure you that we didn’t expect u...

Let's talk about FOOD!

It’s easy to get yourself so wound up that EVERYTHING is a BIG deal! That doesn’t leave much (if any) room for breathing. How often are you really “ALL IN”? Are ALL the eggs actually in a single basket? What’s the WORST that could happen? Aw Come ON! The sky is NOT falling and we’re not all about...

    I read the Tennessean every day, but a day late.   My husband gets the daily paper. He reads it throughout the day and then puts it into MY "pile". Occasionally he also puts some other publication in the pile.   Last week, the"other" publication was the AARP newspaper.   The cover had OUTRAGE...
