"Tristan was instrumental in helping me buy my first home. He really listened to what I was looking for and helped me find an amazing neighborhood that fit my wish list. Not only did he help pinpoint a great neighborhood, but he also went the next step of helping me locate and go under contract on a home before it was even completed or listed. Thanks to Tristan, I was able to choose many of the finishes in the home, and I walked in with already built-in equity! I cannot recommend him enough!"
"I would absolutely recommend Tristan to anyone looking to buy/sell in the Nashville area. He was instrumental in finding our dream home and and made the process from inspections to appraisal to repairs seamless. He has deep knowledge of the different areas in Nashville along with a great grasp of the market and trends. I look forward to working with him again!"

"I had the good fortune of meeting Sara at an open house. Viewing properties with Sara was informative and stress free in equal measure. Every question was answered and detail attended to with impressive promptness. Her recommendations for home inspector, mortgage and insurance companies were also spot on and made the entire process a breeze. I've felt completely at ease because I know that Sara was not going to miss a single detail. I would sincerely and highly recommend Sara to anyone looking for property in Nashville."
Brandon, CEO at Counsel Trust Company
"We just purchased a $1M+ home with Sara as our agent. She did an incredible job finding our dream home in an incredibly hot area - before it went on the open market. She helped us get a contract done quickly and then guided us through a complex set of contingencies and got it closed. We could not be happier!"
"Because we were purchasing a new home on contingency of selling, we needed a realtor who could negotiate lots of moving pieces, and Tristan was that person! He never dropped the ball and was always timely and responsive to all of our needs. Thanks to Tristan, we were able to purchase our dream home and even sold our previous home within the first weekend of it being on the market. What could have been extremely complicated and stressful went through without a hitch. Thanks, Tristan!"
Buyer & Seller

So skilled I made the recommendation she become our corporate representative and welcome other recruits in the same way!"
