Buying a home is a very exciting and often frustrating process as well. Finding the "perfect match" for what you are looking for is hard enough, but understanding the whole process can be even more difficult.
When my fiancée and I began considering buying a home in the Nashville area, we began searching the internet and finding possible houses on the MLS to look at. We wanted to casually get a feel for the market, without the presumed "high pressure" to buy, that we envisioned a Realtor would bring to the equation. While out driving one weekend in the Hermitage area, we were parked in front of a house for sale, just casually looking.
John and Sarah, happened to pull up to "show" the house to prospective buyers, John approached our car with a friendly greeting, asked if we were looking to buy a house, and gave us his and Sarah’s business cards. He said "call us if you want to go looking at houses sometime," no pressure, just a friendly indication they would be available if we needed them.
A few weeks later, we were ready to really get serious in our search, called Sarah and John, gave them some houses we were interested in seeing, and some basic guidelines of what we were looking for. That evening, Sarah, had made appointments to view the houses we had stated, plus, found some similar ones for us to look at. In viewing these houses the next day, Sarah and John were very friendly and helpful in providing information about them, but more than that, they asked us questions in terms of what we liked and disliked about each house, and they "listened" to our answers. They did not pressure us in any way, and made us feel comfortable in expressing our opinions, positive or negative. The next day, driving through a neighborhood that was near some houses we had suggested for viewing, John found a house that fit the description of all the "likes" we had from the previous day’s viewings. It was because he had listened so well the day before, that he knew it was the house for us! We went and looked at it, and made an offer that day.
Throughout the process after finding the right house, John and Sarah, have provided a wealth of information and guidance. From the "offer negotiations," home inspections, mortgage financing, and closing process, they have been there to answer any questions and gather needed information I have had. They have been a true "partner" in this process.
For someone looking for a realtor that is in it for the right reasons, "helping you buy a home, not just sell you a house," John and Sarah are your realtors. They are very knowledgeable and are great people to work with. In the end, we got the "home" we were looking for and made a couple of great new friends.

I found Mrs. Rummage to be quite nice and easy to get along with. She was willing to work with our hectic house hunting schedule, which was not an easy task to do, but she helped us look at as many houses as we could fit in our schedule until we found the ONE right house for us. In the end, I was very please to have worked with her and her husband, and would recommend them to anyone searching for their dream house.

When we moved to Tennessee in 2009 John and Sarah were the first realtors we reached out to. We found that we needn't look any further. Their knowledge of the market as long time residents in Nashville is unsurpassed. The showed us upwards of 30 properties to find the perfect home. I have since recommended them to friends and they helped them in the same great way. They are patient and sensitive to they needs of their clients. John and Sarah have my highest recommendation.

Sarah was very kind and took her time with me as we tried to find the perfect home for me. With her help we found it and I have been here 8 years. Also, when my father passed, Sarah sold the home for us, very quickly. Thanks so much, Sarah.

Sarah Rummage helped us understand the process of selling a home and walked us through each step with expertise and patience. She answered the phone or contacted me very quickly each time I reached out to her with a question or concern. She met me at my place of work when I could not get away to meet her, and she came to my home in order to ease my load of being a career mother and mom of 2. Her and her husband, John, treated our children as if they were a part of their family. I highly recommend them if you are looking to sell or buy a home. We will be using them when we make our next move.

Sarah and John assisted us when we moved from IL to TN. They are so pleasant, knowledgable of the Nashville market and SO patient as we looked at a lot of homes. They are very intelligent about real estate and are wonderful at negotiating.
