Deena Svendsen
Born in Utah and brought up in the custom home-building business, Deena has loved architecture, home design, and real estate since childhood. Her father and grandfather ran a successful artisan carpentry and home construction firm, a family enterprise that prided itself on immaculate service to clients. Growing up in the company business instilled Deena with a deep respect for service and professionalism.

The music and entertainment industry brought Deena to Nashville with her husband and their four children in 2010, and she has fostered a profound love and appreciation for Music City. Considered the firm’s go-to guru for Nashville and Middle Tennessee adventure ideas, venues, entertainment, great restaurants, and outdoor explorations, Deena has focused her knowledge of Nashville and her background in service into a career of connecting new families and locals alike with their future homes.

An East Nashville resident and Nashville local for 20 years, Murn has seen her community flourish and prosper through the many evolutions of Nashville and its ever-changing legacy. The growth and splendor of America’s Music City excites and inspires, and Murn says she’d be hard pressed to find a better home base from which to enjoy the city than East Nashville.

While Murn’s commitment to her clients always comes first, when she’s not helping connect hearts to homes she’s teaching Yoga, training new instructors at Shakti Yoga University, volunteering with Be Well in School, interviewing local Nashville residents on her podcast “Inner Mission,” scouting out new favorite parts of the city with her partner Olivia, or playing in the backyard with their three dogs; Benji, Jax, and Dolly.

Real estate has the potential to be joyful and rewarding. Murn seeks to make it that way for every client she works with. To chat with Murn and find out how she can help you buy or sell your home, call her at

Alex Bailey
 Alex lives in Donelson with her husband and two sons.  They built their home five years ago, a home that Alex herself designed.  During that process, she gained immeasurable knowledge of every aspect of a house–from the foundation to the roof to the interior design.  She now employs that wealth of knowledge to find clients their perfect home.  

Alex holds a business administration degree, specializing in music business, from Belmont University.  She stayed in Nashville after graduating from Belmont, as she wanted to make Nashville her forever home.  She loves everything the city has to offer, and has a deep understanding of what it means to not just buy a house, but to make a home.  

Alex is personable and motivated.  She is genuinely excited to work with each client and help them find the home of their dreams.  When she is not hunting for houses, you can find Alex hunting for antiques. She is passionate about music and food and meaningful relationships. You can reach Alex at 231.838.5283
Stephanie Blount
Born into a family of real estate investors, Stephanie has been excited about real estate since she helped flip houses as a kid, but took the long route when turning her passion into her profession. Stephanie’s interest in advocating for clients initially led her to nursing school, after which she spent years as an Operating Room Nurse in the greater Nashville area.

After nearly 10 years in the Nashville area, Stephanie realized that she wanted a career that was more connected to her beloved city. When purchasing her current Murfreesboro home, she found that she wasn’t ready to let go of the experience. She was hooked on real estate, and there was no turning back.

Stephanie feels fortunate to have discovered, through the peers and mentors who guided her, a distinct way of working in real estate that aligns with her personal and professional values; working not only to buy and sell real estate but to build longstanding relationships with all of her clients. She focuses on each client’s unique needs and helps with real estate issues or questions wherever and whenever they arise.

When she’s not in the office, you can find Stephanie on a nature trail, trying new restaurants or just enjoying life with her husband, Jeremy, and their adorable pups, Prim and Gus. You can reach Stephanie at 662.891.3258
