"When we decided to sell our home of 25 years, we chose Bruce Jones as our realtor and couldn’t be happier with the entire experience. From the sale of our home with multiple offers to the purchase of our new home, Bruce made the process seamless. He was on top of every detail, patience, and just an all around great agent to work with! Highly recommend Bruce!"
"Estoy agradecido por el servicio brindado por Maria excelente persona y muy atenta a responderme todas mis dudas para adquirir mi nuevo hogar, me ayudo bastante y gracias a Maria se logró el objetivo, 100% recomendada."
"I could not have asked for a better realtor than Bruce! The Nashville market is so competitive and Bruce assisted me in finding a home in the exact area I wanted to be in. He was extremely knowledgeable, always responsive, and constantly went above and beyond to make sure my needs were met. I would highly recommend Bruce to anyone!!"
"Look, what you need to know is that Bruce Jones & his team will give you the best service of a lifetime. The people behind this company are solid gold. When I started out as a developer here in Tennessee, I hired them as one of my first Realtor/Partners. The first project was a home run. Second build, on schedule on budget. Third & fourth, just as good, and so on, Bruce Jones and Co now represent approx $30mm in custom Luxury-Spec homes as of 11-15-22."
"Maria was wonderful in helping me look for a home. We saw multiple properties and then went over all the pros and cons of each of those proprieties based off the criteria I provided her. She provided honest feedback and was not just trying to pressure me into a purchase. She did a truly fabulous job."
"Our home buying experience was outstanding with Darcee because she handled every detail perfectly, with ease and grace. We started our process as out-of-state buyers, and after our first phone conversation, we were confident Darcee would be a good-fit to help us find our second home. She educated us on different areas outside of the Nashville area, showed us many homes to get an idea of what we were looking for until we found our perfect (and I mean perfect) home. Early on we had one little hiccup with a home we had put an offer on, and decided against it. When we called Darcee on a Friday night to let her know, without missing a beat she told us not to worry or stress, she would handle everything, and she did! Darcee is very knowledgeable, honest and always makes you feel like you're her only client."
"Bruce truly puts his client's best interests first. He talked us out of taking a low offer with a risky sales contingency. His patience and expert advice resulted in a higher sale price. We appreciated his experience on the entire process and local expertise on Williamson county."
"Darcee Aston was my REALTOR® for a home I just completed purchasing. It had been several years since my last purchase, and to be honest...I kind of dreaded the process. However, I found that Darcee was very willing to accommodate my (pretty specific) requests concerning the type of home, land, etc. She was great negotiating with the sellers, and was able to provide invaluable knowledge and guidance throughout the whole process. I'm very happy with the results, and with Darcee's work! Would highly recommend her to anyone!"
"Darcee was a great Agent and worked to make sure I got everything I wanted. She stayed consistently in contact with the builder throughout the building process and even upon completion making sure everything was perfect . She is extremely personable and will work diligently to make sure you are taken care of before, during and after the home buying / selling process."
"Maria was an amazing realtor! She helped my husband and I find the perfect home for our family! She made the process easy and quick based on our needs! She was such a delight to be around. Thank you for everything Maria!!"
