  • Scenic Views!  Sumner County is classy and elegant. It’s in the foothills, so there are rolling hills that create beautiful views.  This area also has areas that are very much ‘country’ if you want to ‘get away from it all’.
  • Friendly People!  With all the people moving in from other states, Sumner County has somehow retained it’s Southern Charm.  I recently had a client that had just moved here – and she ended up with a flat tire and was on the side of the road.  She said a man stopped and changed her tire even though he was in a shirt & tie.  She told me that ‘moss would have grown on her before anyone would have helped her before’.  That made me feel proud to live here.

A personal note from Pam Rumley
Buying a New Home is one of the largest financial transactions most of us will make in our lifetime, and ‘due diligence’ is so very important during this time. And sadly, most of us aren’t even aware of real estate agency laws. No one tells us. I’ve written an article on this very legal subject and it would be well worth your while to read over it. I want you to at least be aware of your choices when buying a new home! Please feel free to call my private line 615-428-8500 with questions or if I can help you in any way! I look forward to hearing from you.
