Thanks to those of you who have continued to support our agents, our company, and through our Village Fund, the community. I’d like to give all my blog readers a quick overview of where Village has come this year and express my hopes for the new year.
The Village family of agents has grown to over 200 and we now have four offices, including one downtown at 301 Church Street. Our family of services is quite complete as well, with CLG Title & Escrow and CityLife Lending now running strong and providing exemplary service to support you and our business. They join Solve, our marketing venture partners as well as Core Development Services, our project management and investment advisory services company. Together, we’re making my goals and vision of responsible real estate and urban revitalization a reality. Our agents sold 1894 homes this year – and we are in various stages with 45 residential and multi use projects at last count! We are at a 43/57 ratio between new infill construction/adaptive reuse and resale homes.
Thanks to the generosity of many and the continued support of the Village Fund, we have given $220,000 in grants to 85 organizations in our community this year. One of our favorite initiatives included monies raised for Greenways for Nashville. Our agents gifted over 1190 memberships to our buyers and sellers and helped direct over 1,000 new members to that organization! We also enjoyed outreach to Salama Urban Ministries, which is doing great work in the Edgehill Community with after school programs for children. Some of our other recipients included Barefoot Republic Camp, Nashville Area Habitat for Humanity, Affordable Housing Resources, Park Center, Urban Land Institute, Social Venture Network and Magdalene House. We’ve had grant recipients from 30 organizations visit our sales meetings this year to speak with us about the work they are doing as well as to educate our agent group and help us to be & become better stewards.
I would love to help you in the new year and would ask that you send your friends and family to my team when they have real estate questions and needs. Thanks again for your support!
