Mark had an open house in Bellevue this week and completed his training with WCAR.

Having completed his first VFD on Wednesday, he is showing a $800k c. 13,500 Sq ft Lake home in Hendersonville this weekend, a property previously sold by Gary Ashton in 2007 for $1.65M but now being sold by the bank.

This week, Paula Piskie finalized a contract on a home in the Governors Club in Brentwood TN.  The home is listed for just $3.0M and the home inspection was carried out on Friday.  When the home closes in October 2011 it will likely be the most expensive luxury home to close in Brentwood that month, or even that quarter.

The Governors Club is one of only a small number of gated communities in the Brentwood and Nashville area that has a full time manned security policy. This makes this desirable golf course community an attractive proposition when it comes to residents who require a higher level of security or just like the idea of living in a restricted access community.

This is another client that Paula met while doing virtual floor duty (VFD)
