We are thrilled to say there are a number of reasons why DeSelms Real Estate ranks as the most qualified real estate team in the Nashville and Middle Tennessee area. From our top-of-the-line marketing, vendors, and award-winning agents to being Dave Ramsey’s personal realtor to consistently being top 10 for US transactions in the Wall Street Journal, we thought we’d share 11 things about DeSelms Real Estate that you might not know.


11 Things about TDT:

  1. Family run business – Terry DeSelms started practicing real estae in 1989, before forming DeSelms Real Estate. Today his daughter, Tara, is co-owner and Vice President of DeSelms Real Estate and her husband Kenny is an Affiliate Broker and a past Rookie of the Year.
  2. Dave Ramsey’s Personal Realtor – Terry has been Dave’s personal real estate agent for years, helping him buy not only the home he raised his family in but also multiple investment properties. Terry even helped Dave’s daughters buy their homes, and when Dave decided to find the perfect lot to build is his dream home in Franklin, Terry and his team were right there with him every step of the way.
  3. Top 10 in the US for transactions – Terry’s “DeSelms Real Estate” has consistently been ranked in the top 20 Nationwide by “The Wall Street Journal.”
  4. Continuous Training – Terry and his Team have been #1 in Middle TN for over 15 years. Part of the reason, we believe, is that we offer continuous training for all our agents. Our Real Estate Boot Camp helps train newer agents while keeping our seasoned agents on their toes by continuing their education as well.
  5. Professional Staff backing up our agents – Working at DeSelms Real Estate offers you a chance to take advantage of all of our in house services, including full time staff members consisting of 4 listing and closing coordinators, 2 short sale experts and 2 marketing specialists. We also offer all of our agents extensive training, meetings with Terry and agent shadowing experiences.
  6. Open Door Policy – When Terry was new in the business, he tried to go to other agents to learn their tips and tricks, but was turned down. He decided then that he would always have an open door policy and will freely teach agents who want to learn. Terry and DeSelms Real Estate offer a shadowing program for outside agents to come and spend the day shadowing him and the Team.
  7.  1st Billion Dollar Team – DeSelms Real Estate is the first “Billion Dollar” team in the state of Tennessee.
  8.  25 years in the business — DeSelms Real Estate averages selling a home every 14 hours, 15 minutes and 12 seconds while the average agent sells a home every 37 days.
  9. Top of the line in house marketing – If marketing isn’t your strength, never fear – we have an in-house marketing team that is available to train and assist you.
