BHHS Woodmont Realty Founder’s Day
Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Woodmont Realty annually celebrates the first weekend of June the inception of the successful real estate brokerage that continues to service the middle Tennessee region.
It’s a nostalgic gathering of the company hosted by our four current owners; Tonya Hamilton, Ginger Holmes, Tisa Musgrove, and Jim Owens. Each year the Founder’s Day party is held at the home of one of the original founders of Woodmont Realty, Raymond Pruett and his wife, Diane. The event brings together brokers, office support staff, current agents, and our retired legacy of agents to reflect and look forward to the future.
Due to the Nashville Predators’ incredible advancements in the Stanley Cup playoffs this year, Woodmont Realty owner’s decided to host a Predators Watch Party. With 4 large screen televisions and multi-speaker sound system, the Founder’s Day has an exciting new spin on the event. Everyone was encouraged to wear their Predator pride in blue and gold ready to watch our local hockey team smash their competition in an epic Stanley Cup Finals event.
“Founder’s Day has always been one of my most favorite company events every year,” states Ginger Holmes, President and Managing Broker at the Nashville office located off 8th Avenue South in the heart of the Wedgewood/Houston district. “It’s a great chance for our agents, now and from the past, to gather and celebrate the accomplishments of being a long standing brokerage that continues to service our growing city and surrounding counties.”
Currently Woodmont Realty has a total of 128 agents speaking over 12 different languages and providing real estate expertise to 9 counties in middle Tennessee. “Our firm is a work hard/play hard environment where we truly do live by our motto of ‘built on tradition, focused on the future’…” shares Nancy F. Malone, Managing Broker at the Brentwood office location. “We strive to acquire quality over quantity of our sales professionals. Customer service is our number one priority.

Whitland Avenue July 4th Celebration
A huge crowd gathered on Whitland Avenue for the annual 4th of July celebration.
The event started with a children’s parade. Kids decorated their bicycles with red, white, and blue bunting and mounted small flags from the handlebars and rode down the street. Smaller children were pulled in wagons decorated in patriotic themes or even pushed in baby carriages. And numerous dogs sported red, white and blue bandannas.
After the parade, a band played Sousa
marches and patriotic songs and there was a dramatic reading, the Pledge of Allegiance and the National Anthem.
Following the program, everyone enjoyed the picnic, which included hot dogs, fried chicken, casseroles, vegetable dishes, fresh salads, and cakes and pies and so much more.
As always, it was an event that was fun for all and lifted spirits in the best patriotic way.
