Ron and Stephanie handled the sale of my home and it couldn’t have gone more smoothly. From recommending vendors to make small repairs around the house to consulting with me about the asking price and right through the staging of the home and negotiating offers with potential buyers, I could not be happier with the outcome. Ron is a savvy realtor whose guidance resulted in multiple offers for my home, all of them over the asking price and right in line with the highest appraisals in my neighborhood. The closing took all of 15 minutes and was actually an enjoyable process.
I never felt rushed or pushed — Ron worked with me according to my own timeline. When my schedule got busy and preparations for selling the home slowed to a crawl, Ron never expressed frustration; rather, he said repeatedly, “I understand. I’m right here when you’re ready to get rolling again.”
He has a wealth of knowledge about all aspects of the home selling process: vendors — from small home repairs to window cleaners to roofing specialists; ways to photograph the home so it looks magnificent; descriptions of the home that would make anyone want to purchase it, and excellent relationships with title companies that ensure everything comes off without a hitch. He also has an encyclopedic knowledge of Nashville, its neighborhoods, history and all the nooks and crannies where you might find an interesting home for sale or there’s a good deal to be had.
In a few weeks, he will be handling my purchase of a new home in Spring Hill, and just after that, the sale of my fiancée’s home. I’m not the least bit worried about how these transactions will go. For the first time I feel like I have a realtor I can trust and who makes decisions based on what’s best for ME.

Ron and Stephanie were great to work with. I’m a first time home buyer and I feel as though they did a great job helping me through the process and explaining exactly how everything would work. Couldn’t have made it any easier.

Ron and Stephanie are the best!
After working with Ron for years in the retail business many years ago, I decided to call him to see if he would be interested in helping me find a new home. It had been over 20 years since I had purchased a home and I wanted someone that I knew would shoot me straight but also knew me and how stubborn and hard-headed I could be.
This journey began close to a year ago and Ron knew that I was in no hurry to buy and really wasn’t sure of exactly what I was looking for or what area I wanted to live in. Ron was very patient with me and every time I found something I wanted to go see, he would set it up and off we went. We would then discuss all the pros and cons of each home and area we viewed. There were many times that I would drive around or just go to open houses and then send him a list of the ones I had looked at. He would research each one and again would give me more than enough information to assist me in my decision making. This went on for months – on again off again. Then finally, I thought I had found the house I wanted. Both Ron and Stephanie spent lots of time pulling comps and getting everything in line for me to make an offer and the next morning I told him I had changed my mind and didn’t want to purchase an older house. I had finally made one decision – I wanted a newly built home. So the search continued. Ron never showed any signs of frustration with me even though I was totally frustrated with myself. We finally found an area where they were extending into a new phase of an existing subdivision. I was able to pick the floorplan I wanted and the builders had just poured the foundation on a perfect corner lot.
Once the contract was in place, Ron was there with me every step of the way. It took just over three months for the house to be completed and I probably drove by at least 3 or 4 times a week during construction. I was constantly calling or texting my questions and concerns to Ron and he would be on the phone to the builders to get answers or solutions to all my worries. Ron always made me feel like my problems were his problems and even though I knew he was very busy with several other clients, he always found the time and made me feel comfortable and important. When it came time for the inspections, Ron had a list of everything I needed to do and even provided me with choices of inspectors. And finally, the time came for the final walk thru and closing and of course, Ron was there to make sure everything went as planned. I have been in my new home for about three months now and couldn’t be happier. Thanks to Ron and his “patience” I am in my perfect home! If you are looking for someone to help you buy or sell a home – you should call Ron!

Stephanie and Ron did a great job. They’re very friendly and professional. Anytime I needed help or had a question they were very prompt in answering my questions and responding back. They also have great local knowledge being that I moved to Tennessee from out of state. I would highly recommend them for any realty work.

From start to finish, working with Ron and Stephanie exceeded all of my expectations! They know the local market inside and out and they simplified the daunting task of selling my parents’ home. They advised me of what needed to be done to prepare the home for showings and even helped with some of the cleaning. They sold the home in less than a week and worked diligently to expedite the process for a quick closing! When reviewing the buyer’s offer, every detail was patiently explained so that I felt empowered in making an informed decision. They exhibited honesty, professionalism, and kindness and did exactly what they said they would do. I always felt they were looking out for my best interest, and had complete trust in them. I’ll refer them to everyone I know!

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.

I just had to sell a property with Ron in a difficult situation. Ron was INCREDIBLE! He was on top of EVERYTHING! He kept me updated through the whole process, step by step! He was respectful and made sure I was taken care of at the time of the closing! This guy knows what’s he’s doing! I was so impressed with his professionalism and the “treats you like family” feel about him!

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!!

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.

Stephanie went above and beyond to help me find a home. She was very responsive and listened to my needs as a buyer. She was always one step ahead in finding me the perfect home. It seemed like we drove all over Middle Tennessee to find me a home. She was able to answer all my questions and if there wasn’t a question she knew then she took the time to find that answer for me. Finding a home is a very emotional process but she was there to lift me back up at times when I feeling defeated by the process. Not only is she a great realtor she is also a great friend! You can’t go wrong by choosing her as your realtor! Thank you Stephanie for everything!
I was lucky enough to be referred to Ron and his daughter Stephanie. They were so great to work with and went above and beyond to make sure I had everything I needed to make the daunting task of home buying easier. I would recommend this team to anyone, and can’t wait to buy my next home with them by my side.
