We are one of the top teams in Memphis, and we are also ranked in the top 1% of all agents in Memphis. We sold 240 houses for $45M in 2019, 194 for $44M in 2020- the year of the pandemic and over 200 houses for over $50M in 2021! We don't just list homes, WE SELL them. Considering the average agent in Memphis sells 5-7 homes a year, I’d say we’ve earned the “expert” title, and we wear that title proudly!

So, what makes us special? You have an entire team at your disposal! Imagine going for your annual physical and the doctor is the only one there – checking you in, weighing you, vaccinating you, doing the exam, filing your insurance (yikes!), diagnosing you, treating you and then scheduling your next appointment. We don’t try to wear all the hats. Each team member specializes in their particular area, and we communicate with each other for a flawless transaction. A team of specialists working on your behalf will always outperform a generalist!

"Thank you for selling my Cordova home in 5 days. The previous Realtor couldn't do it in 6 months."

Jen- This seriously just made my day!!! Does this give us a better idea about a closing date? I've been on the verge of tears since this morning and needed some cheering up and you just did the trick=) I can not thank you enough for the awesome job you did. I will refer all of my friends and family to you exclusively, because you have been such a pleasure to work with, and because we just love you as a person. We could tell you cared and that you want the best for us- not to mention all the hard work you are willing to do. One day we will be in the position to buy our "forever" house and you will be who we call on for sure when the time comes. Thanks so much for everything that you have done for us over the past few months. It feels like a HUGE burden has been taken away and it wouldn't have been without your help. See you soon!Thank you, thank you, thank you!=)

"You win my realtor of the month award.   Other people had the houses for six months plus and sold one.... And that was before the subprime crisis!"

"I can't believe you sold my house for MORE than list price in 3 days! Thank you thank you!"

"I just wanted to take the time to thank you for all of your hard work selling our home. It was very stressful having to relocate before the closing and you made the whole process a breeze! Thanks!"

"You delivered your promise to me. Thank you for keeping your word, and for selling the house for the price we needed. Expect referrals!"

"We couldn't have done it without you. You were a blessing to us! What could've been a hectic experience turned out to be easy and fun, just like you said. Thank you for everything!"
