2. Nashville history not easily recreated -

After Tim Walker realized no one was killed in the Christmas morning suicide bombing on Second Avenue, his mind turned to the history the city might have lost, a history he has worked decades to preserve amid the cranes and congestion that seem to dominate Downtown Nashville.

3. Is our problem the tax rate or undervaluing property? -

Since taxes seem to be involved in most real estate conversations, let’s talk tax.

This being a real estate column, it would be more appropriate to discuss property tax than sales tax or income tax, although the state income tax of other states and the absence of an individual income tax is helping to drive the local property tax skyward in Nashville.

4. Bryant-McCormick, Stranch win 2020 Athena Awards -

Kee Bryant-McCormick, an attorney with Bone McAllester Norton, PLLC, is this year’s winner of the Athena Leadership Award, and Grace Stranch, an attorney who has been honored by the Tennessee Supreme Court for her commitment to pro bono work, has been named winner of the Athena Young Professional Leadership Award.

5. Time to end farce of Evergreen Place preservation -

They look out of place because they are, in both setting and time, two forlorn mid-19th century structures inharmoniously situated behind a Region’s Bank and within sight of the Home Depot that created the problem. They’re orphans, log and wood-shingle outbuildings locked behind a chain link fence that’s both protector and prison.

6. Giarratana: Think vertical to help preserve non-urban neighborhoods -

Tony Giarratana has for decades devoted himself to transforming downtown Nashville into a vibrant, walkable community for residents and office workers, building such landmarks as The Cumberland, the Bennie Dillon Lofts, Viridian and 505 on Church Street.

7. Nashville needs to own up to its past role in slavery -

Nashvillians may not like to hear it, but just as the city is a celebrated crossroads for transport of goods and services via railroad, long-haul truck and airplane today, the place now acclaimed as Music City once was an “It City’’ for the slave trade … And it’s time to fess up.

8. John Cooper Q and A: Take care to remain 'livable city' -

Q: What do you see as the role of the mayor? What can the mayor do? What can the mayor not do?

A: “The mayor is given clearly in Nashville a dominant role in setting the tone for the city. That does not necessarily jump out at you from the (Metro) Charter ...

9. Nashville homes go for beans compared to Boston -

While many local real estate investors have sat on their hands during the recent boom – watching in disbelief as the market careens out of their comfort zone – out of state money continues to roll in. And that includes international investors.

10. 2019 on pace for another record year in home sales -

The bubble has not burst, but the city is set to explode. The Greater Nashville area is on its way to yet another record-breaking year with year-to-date sales totaling 15,698, compared with 15,606 sales through May 2017, the year the record was set.

11. Real estate frenzy shifts to those looking for rentals -

The uptick in residential property sales, in both condominium and single-family homes, has been well-documented, but the most active sector this spring is the rental market.

On any given Sunday, there are many more renters scouring the market than those seeking ownership, and there is no comparison to the speed of the game. In most cases, those seeking long-term rentals – six months or more – must rent the properties sight unseen.

12. Time is right to address mass transit shortcomings -

For those who are unaware, there will be a referendum on May 1 that allows voters- residents of Davidson County to decide if the city should move forward with a transit plan. As the material being disseminated by the Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce notes, today is the best day you will have in Nashville traffic, plan or no plan.

13. Midstate real estate hitting right notes heading into ’18 -

Historically, real estate begins to slow about this time of year as the community falls into the festivity of the seasons. Not this year.

A ghost of Nashville Christmas past would not recognize the place today; hence, I suppose, the necessity to have a different ghost for Christmas present and yet another for Christmases yet to come.

14. VUMC now operating clinics in Walgreens -

Vanderbilt University Medical Center has begun operating and providing clinical services at 14 retail health clinics within Walgreens stores located across Middle Tennessee. The clinics build upon the continued relationship between Walgreens and Vanderbilt Health, which has included infusion services provided throughout the Middle Tennessee and Walgreens pharmacy participation in VUMC’s clinically-integrated network.

16. 2017 has chance to shatter 2006 sales record for area -

As you might recall, the year 2006 holds the record for the most unit sales in residential real estate for any year since the Greater Nashville Realtors have been reporting sales figures.

That year, 40,056 properties were sold in the area. To provide some perspective, there were 38,954 last year in what most would consider the most rabid market of all time.

17. The same, only different: Nashville has seen a market like this -

Greater Nashville Realtors President Scott Troxel drew some double takes when, after giving a summary of June real estate closings, he pronounced: “I suspect that we will come close to the record of 40,000 annual closings” that occurred in 2006.

19. No matter who wins, rates will rise, sales will slow -

Next week there will be an election, and that is all I shall say about that. Maybe a little more. If Hillary Clinton wins, interest rates will rise and real estate will slow slightly. Should Donald Trump win, look for real estate to slow somewhat and rates to increase.

20. Nashville’s homeless: 2 groups with vastly different problems -

23. How will neighborhoods fare under Barry? -

Nashville’s mayors shape their reputations in very individual ways, and those legacies take shape over time.

NASHVILLE (AP) - The seven candidates vying to become Nashville's next mayor have spent a combined $12.5 million on their bids - the equivalent of $43 for every registered voter in Music City.

26. Cardwell a link to Metro’s past, present -

Metro Trustee Charlie Cardwell definitely is a member of the “good old boys” network that ran Nashville for decades.

Just ask him.

But he also knows that era is long gone and he continues to serve Nashville, as he’s done since 1958.

27. Former mayor Purcell traces city transformation to 1978 election -

Former Mayor Bill Purcell lived through the transition from the good old boys who ran Nashville to the “new Nashville,” in which a displaced Yankee became mayor in 1991 and began the type of forward-thinking, executive-style leadership that has propelled Nashville to skyline-shattering status on the national stage.

28. Boner, Peel and a reporter’s call spark a city’s embarrassment -

Nashville’s mayor broke into a broad smile and funny walk, pointing across the main dining room at the old TGI Friday’s on Elliston Place to a young reporter seated at a long table with eight colleagues and friends.

29. Boner, Fate and our summer of shame -

Phil Bredesen knew what he was trying to do. He just didn’t know if he could accomplish it.

“I had this sense that Nashville was ready for change,” says the former Metro mayor and Tennessee governor, reflecting on his early motivation for taking on the system that had run Nashville for decades.

30. Next mayor must solve traffic, education woes -

“Traffic is getting worse by the day.” I must have heard that complaint six times last week. Those exact words.

Perhaps some road construction coupled with Vanderbilt’s graduation complicated the situation, but that seems to be the feeling here.

31. Surprise career twist for area’s top recruiter of corporations -

Ask Janet Miller about her remarkable career at the Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce and she’ll likely attribute it to good timing or pass credit onto others.

But ask others about her and they’ll talk about an exceptional ability to lead, build trust and forge relationships with a diverse range of people, and, above all, her will to win.

32. One million new residents headed to Middle Tennessee: Where will they live? Will we be ready? -

For Middle Tennessee, the question is not, “If we build it, will they come?” It’s more like, “How will we build it before they come?” During the next 20 years, Middle Tennessee’s 10-county region will absorb 1 million new residents. That’s twice the growth rate of the rest of the nation.

33. Nashville building spree is less about Mayor Karl Dean, more about the city’s 10-year-old ‘50-year plan’ -

If you want to see where a mayor’s true priorities lie, just look at his capital spending plan.

More than any other area of government, it’s where a mayor’s genuine wishes and priorities are expressed.

34. More work to be done in bettering Metro schools -

When Bill Purcell was mayor of Nashville, he had a favorite Realtor story, much to the chagrin of Nashville Realtors, I might add. One of the more painful aspects of the tale is that it is true.

Here’s how it goes. Mike Neal was hired to become the president of the Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce. The term “area,” when used in this context, does not refer to Williamson County, Franklin or Brentwood, as each of them at that time had their own chambers of commerce.

35. Bass, Berry & Sims names new members -

Former associates Wendee M. Hilderbrand, Michael J. Holley and Price W. Wilson have been elected to membership in the firm of Bass, Berry & Sims PLC.
