I hope everyone had a nice weekend. It’s hard to believe we only have nine days until it’s football time in Tennessee! We’re looking forward to a great season.
Last week we recorded 2,022 total documents which keeps us right on trend with prior weeks. Year-to-date numbers in comparison with the past two years are still going up:

The retail center located at 6461 Kingston Pike on the corner of Major Reynolds Place and Kingston Pike was the highest value property transfer of the week at $8.5 million. D. Gengenbach purchased this property from KCMR LLC.
The second highest value property transferred was the Wendy’s restaurant located on Strawberry Plains Pike which was purchased by the Jin Family Trust from Modem IV LLC for $1.9 million.
