Bought a home in 2015 in Glencliff, Nashville, TN 37211.

Michael is an amazing Realtor. I wanted to find a home as quickly as possible after being pre-approved; Michael worked the weekend after Christmas setting up numerous houses for me to view. After finding the right house Michael was able to write up an offer right in the house with his laptop and hotspot. Besides being a great realtor he is a cool guy and made the house finding process really fun. He was so fast to respond through the entire closing process and set up the sale so that the seller paid all at closing!

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $100K in Heron Walk, Madison, TN.

Michael, in a word, is consistent. Even after a year of searching through countless listings and viewing too many disappointing houses with me, Michael never stopped sending listings and calling me with hot leads and timely insights. He never once expressed even a hint of frustration about the long journey with me; he just stayed the course. In the end, I secured an amazing deal on a house where I want to be.

Michael is very easy-going in nature, but he has a sharp business mind and a very keen sense of what is happening in all areas of the Nashville real-estate market. Michael lives and breathes real-estate. His decades of combined experience as an investor, property manager and broker enable him to confidently guide clients through the process and navigate any surprises along the way.

After buying, selling and viewing homes in 3 states, I have met with many realtors. Most are reasonably friendly and some seem very energetic or sincere, but after some weeks or months, the patience and tenacity fade. Michael is, at the end of the process, the same as he was at the start. If you're looking for a home anywhere near Nashville, Michael Tinsley is the only name you need to know.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $150K in Paragon Mills, Nashville, TN.

As first-time home-buyers, we entered the market ignorant of the process and rhetoric, and our initial goals were fairly shapeless.

We were suspicious of the bronzed, photoshop-enhanced glamour shot realtors that dominated the listings that we were looking at, but by chance, we met Michael Tinsley for a few showings and never looked back.

As we went with Michael to see houses throughout Nashville, Michael educated us about neighborhoods, home renovation techniques, warning signs, process, negotiation, and future projects.

With Michael's expert assistance, we ended up with a fantastic first home that feels 100% right and plenty of confidence in future projects.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $275K in Nolensville, TN.

My wife and I feel fortunate to have worked with Michael Tinsley during our recent home search. We went into this search with a wide range of interests and Michael continuously adjusted our search parameters and helped us narrow down what we really wanted. He found houses for us to view and consider no matter what crazy idea we came up with. Throughout the whole process we felt like our needs were a high priority to him.

One thing I especially appreciate about Michael is his perspective as an experienced property owner and landlord. He has a thorough knowledge of construction, historical building materials, what to watch out for during certain time periods, household repairs and maintenance, etc. When I walked onto a property with Michael he started noticing things I wouldn't notice and telling me about them. That was a HUGE help!

His referrals were solid as well. He referred us to a mortgage company, titling, and home inspector, all of which were great to work with. He seems to have high standards for his connections.

The next time my wife and I are in the housing market we'll be looking to work with Michael again. Great guy and a great agent!

Bought a home in 2014.

I would absolutely recommend Michael to anyone looking to buy a house! He was very helpful to us as first time home buyers. He was patient with us and we were looking for a little over a year and we bonded on a friendship level. We were lucky to have found him as our realtor and have someone to share our excitement with after we closed on our perfect home he helped us find! #1 best realtor goes to Michael for sure!!

Showed home in 2013 in Monticello, TN 37122.

Michael Tinsley is very knowledgable in all aspects of real estate and answered all our questions. I would highly recommend his services. He has managed many properties so he is able to quickly spot trouble areas of a home and knows what it takes to correct that problem and can give excellent advise. Michael is very friendly and trustworthy, he will be a great asset to any home buyer or seller especially first time buyers. I would not hesitate to use Michael' s services again in the future - he was a pleasure to work with in our recent search for property.

Bought a Condo home in 2013 in Nashville, TN.

Michael was very responsive to my questions, set up email listings that helped me find my home, showed many properties, and one multiple times. This purchase was the easiest I have had with the back and forth of documents, had good referral for services, and Michael even assisted me with repairs.
