A conversation with Marie Lee

We recently had a chance to sit down and chat with Nashville Real Estate Agent Marie Lee.  

Q: It’s an honor to speak with you today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.

I’m Marie Lee (@movemetotennessee) and I’m an associate broker with TYLER YORK Real Estate. I’m a relocation specialist who focuses on helping out-of-state buyers make the move to Nashville/Middle Tennessee by creating entertaining & educational social media content.

Q: Why did you decide to follow a career in real estate?

I was a teacher who left the classroom and was unsure what route I wanted to take. My partner was a mortgage lender and I heard about how real estate was changing lives financially. I knew I wanted to teach people HOW to buy and invest in real estate. Becoming a Realtor seemed like the best fit!

Q: As a real estate professional, what is one of the challenges you face in the industry? How do you overcome them?

Right now, the market is fast & competitive. I coach my clients on how to quickly beat the competition with strategy. This looks like finding off-market deals or homes with potential negotiation power. We develop strategic offer terms that create a win-win scenario for both the buyer and the seller.

Q: What do you enjoy most about your day-to-day job?

Educating and leading others! Deep down – I’m still a teacher, and I’m so grateful I get to teach about real estate. I focus on teaching the ‘HOW’ and the ‘WHY.’ Nothing excites me more than a consultation.

Q: Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?

Social media has been the foundation of my work. It’s how I connect with potential clients and provide FREE educational content. I began focusing on Instagram Reels, and my following/transaction pipeline exploded. Because my content focuses on how to buy a home and relocate to Nashville, I am able to help many people find their future home in their best-fit location.

Q: What career goals do you have for the next five years? What’s next for you?

I dream of creating the premier, concierge-style relocation real estate team for Nashville. The focus would be to provide a seamless purchase & move experience, from one state to another, with a team of vetted, professional service providers.

Q: What’s a myth about real estate?

‘It is impossible to buy a home right now.’ Right now, I am closing several deals for buyers using FHA/VA loans or downpayment assistance programs. Even if you don’t have 20% down, or an insane amount of cash – you’re probably closer to buying a home than you think. It’s all about being informed about your options AND who you work with. Nashville has one of the hottest real estate markets in the country, and I help buyers

Q: Finally, how can people connect with you if they want to learn more.

Instagram is my preferred platform! Give me a follow and send me a DM (@movemetotennessee). I’d love to connect to give tips and see how I can help you – with real estate or social media.
