Truths About the First Year

Helping people has always been important and natural to me. I worked as a registered nurse for 13 years when I decided to pursue my second dream, real estate. While this decision did not come lightly and I knew it would be very different than my clock-in and out job, I had the passion to […]

Short Term Rental Questions

I have some questions for you all regarding short-term rentals. I would love a response.  1) Would you ever stay in a place with the knowledge that it is likely haunted?

What is a patriot?

On 9/11 you often hear talk about patriotism and supporting troops and first responders. Much of the time these things are synonymous. You are a patriot by supporting the government, military, and establishment. I would suggest a slightly different definition of a patriot. To me, a patriot is someone who seeks to make our country […]


One of the single most important things you can find in your Realtor is the relationships they build within the real estate community and within the community at large. Real estate is so much more than a sales industry. It is 100% a relationship industry. It is the relationships that get the work done. No […]

You might have a job where you work for a big corporation, a school system, a mom-and-pop business, or yourself. You might be a public service employee like a police officer or in the […]

Who is Your Barbara?

I have several aunts and my parents and my brother. My wife’s immediate family is smaller but awesome too. Plus we have bonus family through friendship relationships […]

Coffee. Shopping. Community.

I love Murfreesboro! I understand this is an unusual thing to type at the beginning of a story, but I do love Murfreesboro. I have lived in a small handful of cities, and I choose to call Murfreesboro, our Rutherford County seat, home. I took a circuitous route to get here, but I hope you […]

Busy Bees

On Friday I got to go on a short hike with my buddy Bryan Nale. We hiked the Vesta Cedar Glade. It is uniquely, ruggedly beautiful. The highlight of the hike, by far, was when we were in the actual glade and there were these short little trees with big clumps of tiny white flowers. […]


The words you use matter. Precise language is imperative to accurate communication. Many people think that distinguishing one word from another, when the meanings are similar, is just semantics and the user (or corrector) is being petty or too picky. I would disagree. Let’s compare just a few words that have been watered down due to […]
