What You Need To Know
I grew up in Honolulu and went to college in Boulder at the University of Colorado, earning a B.S. in Journalism with a double emphasis in Advertising and Marketing. I've been fortunate to live in many world-class cities like Seattle, Boston, London, and even briefly in Tel Aviv and Aix-en-Provence in southern France. Each seemed like a gigantic neighborhood, made up of a series of walkable villages, which allowed me to work and play close to home. When I chose Nashville in 2000, I was drawn to similar "urban suburban" neighborhoods and have been discovering their unique quality of life ever since. My family now includes three children: a daughter, 18, a graduate University School of Nashville, and 13 year-old boy/girl twins who attend JT Moore Middle School. We live in Belmont/12South, which we LOVE, because it's a place where you can have a dog and kids and a yard - and still get to dinner in the Gulch in five minutes, and be in your symphony seat ten minutes after that!
The city neighborhoods of Sylvan Park, Hillsboro/West End, Belmont/12South, as well as Germantown and East Nashville are some of my favorites, because your whole life can unfold right outside your door: amazing restaurants, art and music and sport venues, coffeehouses, great schools, and one-of-a-kind shops, with parks and greenways within easy reach. My first home in Nashville was in Green Hills, so I have a soft spot, too, for the surrounding close-in suburban communities of Belle Meade, West Meade, Hillwood, Oak Hill, Forest Hills, and Brentwood.
Since 2012, I've been involved in the purchase, marketing, and negotiation of more than sixty transactions with a market value exceeding $40 million. I've worked with families, couples, medical students, CEOs, investors, and everyone in between. Whether you're looking to buy your first house or your fifth, identify an investment property, or sell a multi-million dollar dream home, my approach remains the same: I see my role as your advisor and advocate. You can count on me to be a straight-shooter, innovative marketer, astute negotiator, and creative problem-solver.
I seek every chance to leverage my experience and professional network in ways that will benefit my client. I have a multi-discipline background in banking, advertising, and corporate communications, that combines the core components of every real estate transaction. And my drive to generate win-win outcomes has earned me solid working relationships with my industry peers, as well as other partners-in-the-process, i.e., mortgage lenders, home inspectors, closing attorneys, and contractors. I am a member of the National Association of Realtors, Tennessee Association of Realtors, Greater Nashville Association of Realtors, Real Estate Investors of Nashville, Nashville Civic Design Center, and Greenways for Nashville. I'm proud to say I earned VILLAGE's 2015 MVP Award and serve currently as Greater Nashville REALTOR's Vice Chair of Professional Development.
Nashville is a truly special place, said to be as far south as Northerners want to go and as far north as Southerners want to go, and it's within 500 miles of 60% of the U.S. population (!) so travel is easy. Nashville's big city culture and small town warmth draw artists, industry, and entrepreneurs to its rich and relaxed way of life. It's a friendly, generous, inclusive, and growing community with a great story, one that’s made better with the addition of each new resident. If you're a "suburban urbanite" like me, come find your place in the heart of Nashville. You're going to fall in love, and find that it's an exceptionally cool place to call home.

"Anne provided clear/focused advice and guidance, and is always the professional with the personal touch. She is very attentive to reconciling clients’ needs with the marketing and business needs of successfully selling a home. She spearheaded the use of an innovative marketing tool (she made a movie about our house – with actors!) that provided direct results, but most importantly helped secure maximum value for the sale of our property. Because of the great respect I have for Anne’s knowledge, abilities and professionalism, she was the first person/Realtor I recommended a close friend contact when she made the decision to sell her West End home – and my friend was overjoyed when the sale closed 30 days later!” --Mike Martino, Seller, Parthenon/West End, $1.4MM
"As first time home-buyers, we were new and unfamiliar with purchasing a home. Anne helped guide us through one of the biggest decisions of our lives with confidence, professionalism and ease. She tirelessly went above and beyond for us, spending hour after hour and mile after mile helping us find the perfect house for our family. And when it came time to go to bat for us, she rolled up her sleeves and delivered. Anne is an expert in her field, and does it all with a genuine smile. She is the best and we would work with her again in a heartbeat. We’ve already recommended her to several of our friends. Ten out of ten!" --Nick and Meredith Bullock, Buyer, Currywood Acres
"I had a tear-down property under contract that I was looking to wholesale quickly, and after contacting Anne for assistance she was able to line up a buyer for me within an hour (!) and close in a very short period of time!! Anne helped me when I needed it most. I highly recommend working with her!” --Rodney Stevenson, Wholesaler, North Nashville
