Nashville New Year Reflections 2014
All total, T.J. Anderson | Real Estate Partners helped make 57 wonderful people and couples in 2013. These great folks either moved up, moved on (and we are sad to see them leave), or decided to call Nashville home for the first time, in which case we welcome them! Nashville has arrived, and we are proud to be part of the housing, culture, and business boom that all of us Nashvillians, native and otherwise, enjoy on a daily basis. I'm confident that most of us enjoy telling people where we live and work, and do it with a confident smile!
For those of you that know me, you know I went through my own "case study" in selling my home and moving homes. The mental and physical roller coaster was one I rode, and gave me a deeper understanding for what my clients experience during each transaction. While we have always lead with the philosophy of making our clients lives easier and more convenient, we now fully understand that real estate transactions involve emotional ups and downs, which need to be met with patience and understanding...and perhaps a closing toast of champagne!
From a business perspective, real estate transactions have become FASTER . In 2012, my team moved to a fully digital platform, so we already were completely paperless. In 2013, we took our offering of conveniences a step forward with our DotLoop transaction management system. With an email address and an internet connection, we are able to secure signatures, transactions, and ultimately, HOMES, quicker than most, and in the most efficient way.
In addition to transaction management, we were able to upgrade the website you are currently visiting. We believe you won't find a better MLS search out there, as we have embraced Google's stronghold on all our online lives. You can search for homes by general city, all the way down to walkable neighborhoods. In addition, we added "location based" searches to narrow your search, whether you are tied to a desk, or out and about on your smart phone (fyi, for our awesome app, text "TJ" to 615.866.4670). We want our customers and clients to be fully armed with real estate information. We understand that you have a choice in your real estate service, and each time someone chooses to use our site and our service, we feel good knowing they are getting the best.
In 2014, I can only see the market continuing to improve. Heck, Forbes placed Nashville #4 on it's top cities to invest in 2014! We call that exciting.
This year our goal is to help over 100 clients and families. We're also always looking to grow our team with likeminded people, so if you know anyone reach out to us.
We will again be heavily involved in neighborhood events and charities. Look for us this summer, as we again sponsor the second annual "East Side Hootenanny". We also will be working closing with local pet rescue organizations, as we hope to assist with the adoption and care of Nashville's stray dogs. After all, dogs need a home as much as people!
Here's to a wonderful 2013, and looking forward to an even better 2014! We look forward to working with you Nashville!
