About • Ron Rice • Stephanie Miller • Benchmark Realty, LLC

Ron Rice Nashville TN Real EstateI was born and raised here, went to school here, got married here, raised two wonderful kids here, welcomed two amazing grandkids to our world here, and owned and operated businesses here… get the picture? Nashville is my home, always has been, always will be. I love it here!

Real estate had been an interest of mine for years, but when my wife and I, as new empty-nesters, moved to the downtown area several years ago, my passion for real estate and my hometown really ignited. Having previously spent almost thirty years in retail management and small business ownership in Nashville, I gained the experience and skills necessary to offer my real estate clients the unrivaled level of service my past clients enjoyed.  I am 100% committed to you, and whether representing you as a buyer or seller, my duty is protecting your best interests and striving for a smooth transaction from our first meeting until we reach the closing table.

My wife and I have returned to our roots in Donelson, where we met while in high school at DCA.  Our daughter and my real estate partner, Stephanie Miller, lives in Lebanon with her family.  While we specialize in the areas of Downtown Nashville, Donelson, Hermitage, Old Hickory, Mt. Juliet and Lebanon we have and do serve clients all over Middle Tennessee.  

As a Nashville native, I’ve spent a lifetime watching our city evolve, and I am enthusiastic about showcasing it to others and serving their real estate needs.

What some of my clients have to say:

“From our very first meeting with Ron, we knew he’d be a good fit for us.  He listened to what was important to us and delivered with each and every home that we looked at. Ron always put our best interests first and never attempted to “sell” us anything.  Without a doubt, he helped us find our dream home. It was an enjoyable journey and we are grateful to have had Ron guide us through the entire process. Ron is more than just a realtor. He has quickly become a trusted friend and will forever be considered family.”

-Jay Martin and Tara Long


Ron helped me sell one of my properties just last month and I couldn’t be happier with everything he has done for me! He got me the best outcome and went above and beyond! I highly recommend him!”  We had 3 offers in less than 12 hours and sold for above list!

– Morgan Holmes


“ Was blessed to go to lunch with my old friend Ron Rice. After knowing someone for 20 years, I can truly say this is the go to guy for anybody looking to buy or sell their home in the Davidson County, TN area. Ron has been a professional all these years and knows Nashville well from downtown to the border counties.

-Michael Guess


“I don’t even know where to begin. Ron was the best realtor. We used him to sell our home and help us find our new home. My husband and I enjoyed having him on our side through this process. Ron is the reason we sit on our porch at night and feel so blessed. He helped make us the happiest family that loves to come home every night. Dreams really did come true thanks to him.”

-Ashley Spears


“Ron listed my daughters property after talking to us about the price we should offer. In less than 12 hours had 3 offers!! We couldn’t have done this without him helping with the staging and extra work meeting us at our property and on our time. He is very knowledgeable about the industry and has answers for all your problems you run into. He knew what to ask and when! I have given his name to 2 other people and will continue to refer others!!.”

-Vickie Jacobson

When we began planning the sale of our house we anticipated at least a month or two on the market and were prepared for many showings and having to evacuate the house at a moment’s notice. However, soon after Ron came to our assistance we were in a multiple offer situation and within days we had a  contract well over our asking price. Initially, I had been uncomfortable with the selling process but he left me at ease and I couldn’t have been happier with how it all worked out. He assisted us with getting our home ready for the market by pointing out what should be repaired/cleaned for optimum showing. Ron checked prices of comparable homes in our area and set a price that got prospective homebuyers in the door. Finally he was on top of the contracts, paperwork, and deadlines.

The house search was a little more difficult as we had specific desires in our future home. We were looking for an older home that had acreage for a reasonable price. Ron was very patient with us and took us to visit many homes over a several week period. We were made aware of homes the moment they came on the market. He answered all of our questions and walked us through the contracts we had to sign which was very helpful as this was not something that I do every day. We never felt rushed, even though were very diligent about our inspection contingencies as we had no desire to get into a bad situation. Whenever I felt we were overdoing it he encouraged us to keep at it and didn’t want us in a house we were uncomfortable with. He got us out of our first contract due to inspections. Ultimately, we found exactly what we were looking for and he negotiated the price below asking. Ron also came to both closings with us as we signed all the final documents, which was a comfort. We would recommend him to everyone!
