With a huge following in the Nashville area, including Brentwood, Franklin, Bellevue, Mt. Juliet, Hermitage, Old Hickory, Donelson, Hendersonville, LaVergne, Smyrna and points in between….. and expertise that spans over 30 years and thousands of transactions, Team Kipp, is not only a household name, but a force of nature in the Middle Tennessee real estate industry.
During that time, which includes some of the best and the worst market conditions ever seen in the region, David & Sharon Kipp’s business has thrived and grown. Their secret? Their sterling reputation is built on honesty, openness, thoroughness and independence. Team Kipp partners freely disclose information to their clients that COULD HAVE A BEARING ON THE SALE OR PURCHASE OF THEIR PROPERTY AND consistently maintain the highest standards of ethics and fairness. They help their clients to understand all of the factors involved at every step of the process and clearly outline the pros and cons of any position a client might wish to take. They diligently research every aspect of a property and transaction to ensure that their clients make the most informed decisions possible, negotiates astutely on their behalf, then executes the closure flawlessly. Plus, members of Team Kipp have the independence and insight to focus on what’s really important in selecting a home: a refreshingly candid, savvy and down-to-earth approach to service that yields generations of satisfied, loyal customers.
An early interest in law led David to earn his J.D at Vanderbilt University. But soon his passion for business and real estate took over. Following in his father’s footsteps, he sold Real Estate for over 30 years. Today he focuses on managing their Real Estate Investments and supporting the team as an unlicensed assistant.
For Sharon Kipp, the Real Estate business is about one thing: People. Yes, she has over 30 years of real estate experience and a prestigious alphabet soup of certifications “ABR (Accredited Buyer Representative), CRS (Certified Residential Specialist), GRI (Graduate Realtors Institute), e-PRO (Internet Professional), GREEN (NAR’s Green REALTOR Designation), SFR (Short Sale and Foreclosure Specialist). But those, like the I-Pad, I-phone, cameras, advertising and contracts, are simply tools that help her focus on the immediate individual needs of her clients.
In addition to Sharon’s work with clients, she believes in “Paying it Forward” and is involved with fundraising and volunteer activities in their community, serving as long time Board Member and Past President of the Donelson Hermitage Chamber of Commerce, current Board Member of Greenways for Nashville, past Board Member of the Greater Nashville REALTORS, fundraising and build participant with Habitat for Humanity, local schools and charitable organizations such as The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society , American Cancer Society, Volunteers of America and Susan Komen Race for the Cure.
Originally from Alabama, Sharon has moved a bit and lived in Georgia, Mississippi, Texas, California and Tennessee… calling Nashville home twice. Sharon understands the stress involved in relocating, starting new schools, new jobs , making new friends and finding a new home.
Relationships and information are two key elements in any real estate transaction. All member partners of Team Kipp enjoy creating those relationships, hopefully lifetime relationships. They want to make a difference in the quality of peoples lives “Whether they’re selling or buying, they need to know about todays market conditions and what to expect.” They need a good listener, the right strategy, expert negotiation skills and someone in whom they can place their trust with one of the biggest investment of their lives.
Making it happen is a hallmark of Team Kipp’s service, and the reason their business is comprised almost entirely of repeat and referral clients. They get referrals not only from their past clients, but from other agents. They’re the kind of agents that other agents feel really good about referring their clients to. Letters of appreciation from their clients and their colleagues from other real estate companies describe the Kipp’s approach .. “professional, thoughtful, extremely helpful, protective of our interests…. Year after year, Team Kipp member partners achieve consistent, award-winning top producer status along with the respect of their clients, their neighbors and their peers.
And their slogan “A Family Tradition in Real Estate” is not just a slogan.. it is a fact. Team Kipp members are a savvy, committed and tough negotiating team, but most importantly, they operate their business the way they would expect to be treated if they were the client. David’s father, Dave Kipp, Sr., was a pioneer in Real Estate in the Donelson, Hermitage, Inglewood, Madison & Old Hickory areas. He also served as President of the Board of Realtors for Nashville in the 1960’s (now known as Greater Nashville Association of Realtors aka GNAR, now Greater Nashville REALTORS).
