With 25 agents the teams production climbed to just over $65,000,000 in terms of value of the homes sold in Nashville. This was a production figure that was recently recognised by RE/MAX at the RE/MAX convention in Las Vegas in March 2012.

A message from Jennifer Wray of The Ashton Real Estate Group of RE/MAX Elite, the #1 RE/MAX real estate yeam in Nashville and Tennessee as well as being in the Top 25 RE/MAX Real Esstate teams in the USA!

This week I showed properties in West Nashville to a First Time Home buyer for the second go around and showing property onSaturday to a couple in the Gallatin area.

It's definitely getting busier now in Nashville as I see properties becoming unavailable pretty quick when just listed. BUYERS need to start moving quicker when deciding on a home.

The Nashville Market is starting to pick up!
