"In short, TJ was awesome. He never once pressured us to look for something that was outside of our budget or didn't fit our style. His main concern was that we found the right house for us. He really cared about us and our future life in the home. He was also very knowledgeable about the areas (not just the architectures) that we might be best suited for. Now that we're settling in to our new (and first) place, we couldn't be happier! We're ready for the warm weather to stick around for a while so that we can get cracking on our outdoor projects! I have already recommended working with TJ to some of my friends who are currently looking for homes in Nashville and will continue to do so."
