 Some testimonials of The Grumbles Team:

The video above shows two happy clients of The Relocation Engineer after selling their home of 24 years in Franklin's Buckingham Park and finding an off the market ranch home in Maplewood Subdivision to buy.   Our services were valuable in putting this complex transaction together.


In the video above, Al and his wife Sandra relocated from California to Franklin for retirement and as the video shows they are so happy that they chose The Relocation Engineer, Mike Grumbles, and his team to help with the process from neighborhood selection down to getting the walk through completed and a punch list prepared so the home would be enjoyable from closing day. The Relocation Engineer saved them money and time and energy along the way. The entire process was monitored and tracked on spreadsheets so that the clients could see that they were getting what they paid for and that items along the way were being monitored and followed-up on. If you want a more enjoyable new construction buying experience Al says to contact The Relocation Engineer, Mike Grumbles, at 615-587-5843.

Another testimonial for The Relocation Engineer and the Grumbles Team is in the video below.  This testimonial was from William after he bought his first home for his growing family.   We provided education and guidance to William all along the way and he attended our home buyer seminar.


The Relocation Engineer and The Grumbles Team was chosen to help this family buy a piece of land to build a future home upon.  This is their testimonial of our team "Thank you for all the work you did for us.  Barbara had great patience with us and was a joy to work with.  We know that we aren’t the easiest folks to please, but she always went the extra mile any time we asked for things.  I am thankful we were able to work with you guys.  If we ever need any more Realty service we will let you know.  Thanks for serving us well!!" .

We have a photo of them at DLO Title with Barbara Rutan from The Grumbles Team.  Whether you are looking for land, a home, or something unique we can provide the right advice.

The Relocation Engineer, Mike Grumbles, was hand selected from out of a huge group of REALTORS to represent this family on the purchase of their Franklin home that will be the first home of their young child.

The home shopping experience was made simple and the detailed market information about neighborhoods that the buyers had interest in was provided to the buyers.   The made a very easy selection of a home that needed a few finishing touches which these buyers were excited to take care of to get a great deal in the Franklin market.  

After the negotiations were completed, the Relocation Engineer's systems were initiated so that all of the proper inspections were completed and the financing terms of the contract could be met.  The home purchase went smoothly and the sale took place two weeks early so that the young family could take ownership prior to Thanksgiving and get Hudson settled into his first home.

It was a pleasure to work with these excited clients, and I hope that they will enjoy this wonderful brick home with a private rear yard.

New home for Franklin Family


After 15 years in a Franklin home this couple is grateful that The Grumbles Team SOLD their home and helped them buy a new home in Stags Leap Subdivision.  They met The Grumbles Team via their premier real estate search engine website and once they met and discussed the options for selling a home and buying a more upscale home they decided that Mike was the person for the job.  We searched high and low for the right house for them and since they loved the outdoors a home with a pool in Stags Leap was perfect for them.  We got the COMING SOON home under contract and then went to work selling their home in Franklin's Cannonwood subdivision.  With a "Take-Away" marketing strategy we sold the home in the first weekend at above the asking price, and helped them navigate four offers.  Let The Grumbles Team yield these results for you.  Visit us at and watch the video below and see the photos of the home they sold and purchased below.


We moved them from this:

This Facebook Testimonial of The Grumbles Team from Alisa Tate sums it all up!


A family in Spring Hill, wanted to upgrade thier current home to a larger one with nicer features.  So we walked them carefully through the process of finding a home and getting the mortgage with CMG Financial and they love their new home.


This family wanted for years to sell their family home where they built in the 1970's.  The tried and eventually connected with The Grumbles Team and we obtained the success that they were looking for.  We helped them navigate the issues with selling an older home on 16 acres and worked through the county issues with septic and well water and they are now happily enjoying their new home.  Please see their short video. 

Chris is a repeat customer to The Grumbles Team.  In October 2013, she came to us looking for another home and if you watch this 40 second video you will see and hear that SHE LOVES THE GRUMBLES TEAM, and she uses us because we are professional, swift, and precise.  We helped her acquire a home in Nashville that she got for $7000 under the appraisal and we got the seller to pay Title, and fix many of the items from the home inspection.


The Grumbles Team made the dreams of a Franklin family come true.  After 18 years in their Franklin, TN home they wanted to upgrade and one of our marketed homes was the perfect home for them.  We showed them the property and walked them through the process of writing a contingent offer and promptly marketed their home in Buckingham Park for sale to get top dollar and a quick sale.  As you can tell from the video below, they are quite excited about the process and how we handled all of the heavy lifting except on moving day. They enjoy their new home in Carronbridge and we wish them all the best with the new forever home.


In May 2013 The Grumbles Team helped a seller sell a very special property that was originally built in 1830 in Brentwood, TN.  The home was artfully restored by Debbie Laster.  She wanted to share with the world her experience.  Watch this short video to see how happy she was that she found us.


 Another Grumbles Team Success Story, the family wanted to change homes for school zoning and, we were able to sell their home and get them into a new one in the timeline that they wanted.




The Grumbles Team recently handled a new construction home purchase for the Roger's and here is what they had to say about the experience.

Tiffany is excited that the home she wanted to have sold quickly was handled with diligent care by The Grumbles Team. We were able to procure a contract in a week for $247,500.

We listed and sold this client's home in under a week with 4 offers.  He was very happy and excited to cash the check from closing!


"We heard your team was the best in the business and you definitely proved that” Nick and Tamera, Nashville first time home buyers.


The Grumbles Team was blessed with the opportunity to work with the family member of a past client and they needed a home quick.  We were able to help them choose the right home and negotiate the inspections and the timing was perfect.  Just watch to see how excited this couple was to have had The Grumbles Team as their representation. 


The following is a video of a satisfied seller that asked us to sell his home so he could retire to Florida.  We got the job done quickly and left him with a feeling of accomplishment and he was glad he chose The Grumbles Team over the rest of the agents he interviewed.  We brought him multiple offers and sold in for more than the asking price and got the contract in just 8 DAYS!

Another seller that was satisfied with the listing services of The Grumbles Team. We consulted on the renovation, staging, marketing, and got this house sold for over the list price after multiple offers were drawn in on the property and received a contract in just about 30 days.


Thank you for all of your diligent work in dealing with our home” The Tarrents, Franklin.


"The Grumbles Team went the extra mile to find us the best value in a home and to explain the process at each step.  The team went from a working relationship to a friendship and they were not afraid to dig to find our dream home at a dream price."  Ed and Chris , Nashville TN

 Testimonial from a transaction where The Grumbles Team represented them in Selling and Buying both on the same day:


This is our favorite testimonial from a first time home buyer family:

The Grumbles Team has experience in mortgages, relocation, and first-time ownership. We have diverse backgrounds in other professional fields and utilize those experiences to best serve our clients.

Craig in Franklin, TN was excited about his properties first place ranking on Google after only a week and the number of showings that led to multiple offers and a sale at a great price over his expectations in 12 days.   See the video of his testimony.

Beth in Spring Hill, TN was a first time home buyer and she was glad she used the services of The Grumbles Team.  Listen to her testimonial video below.  The Grumbles Team explained the process from A to Z and knew about foreclosure offers and short sales and was up on market pricing.  The Grumbles team negotiated to get the repairs done even when things seemed stalled.  The timing was perfect for her moving plan.  



Sunday made a family move to Tennessee with her sons and The Grumbles Team took her specific conditions into account and made all the necessary preparations for her to make a move from Florida as convenient as possible.



Daniel is a young professional in Nashville and he was pointed to The Grumbles Team by Google. He was treated with respect during his home purchase and he became a very informed buyer that was able to get a great deal on his first home. Hear his viewpoint of how Barbara of The Grumbles Team helped him.


Heather closed on her new home at DLO Title in Franklin with the assistance of Region's Bank Mortgage. Listen to her experience with Barbara of The Grumbles Team. Don't let another agent tell you that a foreclosure has to be bought AS-IS. Barbara negotiated closing costs for the buyer and repairs to be made per the Buyer request. If you want a tough negotiator on your side then contact Barbara at The Grumbles Team.

Here is a handwritten letter from a client that we assisted in a successful move from FL to TN.  This just shows that the Grumbles Team understands that people won't remember what you did for them but they will remember how you made them FEEL.  We strive for our clients to feel cared for and respected.
