Serving Memphis

As the oldest real estate firm in Memphis, they know a thing or two about the greater metro area. Memphis is the metropolitan hub of a five-state area known as the Mid-South. Home to more than a million residents, the greater Memphis area offers something for everyone. Residents of Memphis enjoy a relatively low cost of living, the purest water supply in the country, more trees per square mile than any other city, a temperate climate, four distinct seasons and the hospitable atmosphere and pace of the "City of Good Abode."

Today, Memphis has one of the lowest costs of living of any major U.S. city. It offers a wide variety of affordable housing to suit almost any lifestyle. Choices range from high-rise apartments and renovated downtown lofts overlooking the river to a seemingly endless array of single-family homes in the area’s numerous metropolitan, suburban, and rural neighborhoods.
