Bring It Or Else

Ha! … except for the whole dead deer, that is …

Shopping, Househunting, and Potter, Oh My!

I did not join the throngs of shoppers hungry for the deal of the century yesterday as they picked through clothing, toys, and other merchandise at box stores and malls.  For that I am thankful.  Instead, I showed houses from dawn (if you call the crack of 11:00 am dawn) until dusk.  It put me in the spirit of showing you some of the best buys in LaVergne… with permission from the listing agents, here they are (along with the agent contact information).

620 Hollandale Rd.
2158 Square Feet, 3 Bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths
Privacy fence in backyard and nice bonus room downstairs

This house is listed by Linda Miller from my Bob Parks Realty office.  It’s already bank-owned and has been completely cleaned, painted, and new carpet installed.  The caveat of buying a bank-owned home… if you have an offer accepted by the bank it’s not yours until all ink is on the paper. Time is most definitely of the essence so do not delay putting it in writing if you come to a verbal agreement.  You can reach Linda for more information at 474-9472 or

2705 Pickards Point
Madison Square subdivision
1235 Square Feet
3 bedrooms, 2 baths, 1 car garage

I was genuinely surprised to see this house still on the market given the fantastic price.   There is a cathedral ceiling in both the living room and master bedroom (and an interesting architectural rock design on the master wall) and the house is very appealing.   Listing agents Lisa Morrow (957-8539) and Cindy Spears (542-0277) of Crye Leike can be reached for more information.

Finally I have to brag about 281 Bill Stewart Blvd.  The super clean house has 1756 square feet, 3 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths, and a 2-car garage.  It’s listed at $124,900 and the sellers are looking for an offer!

For information about these homes or any other in the middle Tennessee area, you are welcome to contact me as well.

Mortgage interest rates are starting to edge up again and we are finally seeing more buyers in the market… signs (we hope) that the housing market is beginning to creep out of the recession.  It will take some time but it’s starting.

And Harry Potter!  OH MY!  Went to see that movie last night with my daughters.  Bring your kleenexes!


Let’s Organize a Flash Mob

My pal Tonya posted this on her Facebook status and it was amazing.  While I can’t sing and my dance skills are frightening at best, I think it would be GREAT to organize a flash mob.


Who wants to organize a LaVergne flash mob? We could do one for the Smyrna Christmas parade … LaVergne crashes Smyrna parade.

Dear So and So

My new favorite way to post!


Dear DNJ,

Last year you printed the winners of the Ruthies Awards online.  This year… nothing?  Is this just a way to sell more paper products?

What’s the Deal??


Dear Daylight Savings Time,

The early darkness…. it makes me want to stick a fork in my eye.

I Must Need More Vitamins or Something


Dear Golden Corral,

We want you to come to LaVergne.  Please hurry.

Everybody Loves Buffets


Dear Ryan’s Steakhouse,

We’d take you instead … so get on it before Golden Corral has a chance!

Don’t Serve Any Brussel Sprouts, Though


Dear Readers,

We would really like to find more volunteer writers.  I would promise that we don’t bite, but actually sometimes we do.  But don’t let that keep you away!  If you’ve ever dreamed of padding your resume (aka “Featured Writer for This is”) or if you happen to live here, are coherent, and like writing… this gig could be good for you and good for us!  We don’t pay anything but that’s because we don’t make anything.

Won’t You Please Think About It,
Kathy T.
