Southern Homes Real Estate 

Katie Schmeltzer is co-owner of Southern Homes Real Estate and loves guiding her clients through the process of real estate. As a mom of three boys, when she isn’t working with clients, Katie is busy keeping up with her family.

Prior to embarking in a real estate career, Schmeltzer was a teacher. During her down- time, she loves running and has previously competed in the Ragnar Relay. She’s married to Andy Schmeltzer; their boys are Ryne, Greer and Hayes.

Schmeltzer, who has been in the business for 13 years, loves interacting with people and aims to be intentional every step of the way and always make the client the priority. One thing many folks may not realize about real estate is how much of an emotional process it can be.

“Clients might be buying their first home, downsizing from the home they raised their children in, or selling a parent’s estate,” she said, adding her number one piece of advice in this market is for a client to know their numbers. “Knowledge is power! It’s also so very important to hire the right real estate professional.”

She recommends clients study how much they can afford, what is needed for a down payment and what closing costs will be.

  • Editor's Letter

    August is the calendar month when summer begins its slow crawl towards autumn, but not before a few more hot days and thunderstorms. Enjoy the bounty of the season: vine-ripened tomatoes, ripe melon, sweet corn on the cob, and blueberries are just a few of my favorites. Luckily for us, Murfreesboro is blessed with one of the finest Farmer’s Markets in the state where we can do just that! Nothing screams summer better than a homecooked meal of fresh fruits and vegetables, locally grown and sold. Read More
  • Garage Barre + Bike

    You may have noticed the corner of Church St and Vine St on Murfreesboro’s downtown square looks a little different. What once was an empty building with a black coat of paint now features a pink-and-white striped wall (that you’ve probably seen photographed on social media.) Inside these striped walls are barres, bikes, and a community that is flipping the idea of a “boutique fitness studio” completely upside down. Read More
