Known affectionately as the “Country Music Capital of the World,” Nashville, Tennessee is a city garnering a lot of attention. Let’s check in with Lawrence Lipman, owner; and Jasper Tollett, managing broker, of the Lipman Group Sotheby’s International Realty for their insight into Nashville’s market.
“While its deep-rooted Southern charms remain as pronounced as ever, it’s no secret that Nashville is undergoing the kind of sudden contemporary makeover that only a few cities around the United States have experienced,” says Tollett. “Buzz surrounding the city has been off the charts in recent years, as steady job growth and its reputation as an entrepreneurial haven have yielded a massive influx of development; more than $2 billion worth of new projects have led none other than the New York Times to deem Nashville an ‘It’ city. Naturally, increased interest in the area is also reshaping the residential landscape.”

"Trending neighborhoods throughout Nashville speak to the myriad of lifestyle options available in the city,” Tollett continues. “Belle Meade, for example, has become home to captains of industry, entertainment legends and even a former U.S. vice president – which is why Forbes described it as one of the 25 Places to Retire Rich.

“While Nashville is famous for being the home of Andrew Jackson, as well as the home of former vice president Al Gore,” Tollett says, “other celebrities that call Nashville home are, Dolly Parton, Tim McGraw & Faith Hill, Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban, Amy Grant, Vince Gill, Wynonna Judd, Billy Ray Cyrus, and Carrie Underwood just to name a few.”
