Whether you’re preparing to travel or to move, you have a lot on your mind as you make sure that all of the boxes are checked and the details are taken care of. Adding pets into the mix further complicates things – there’s even more to remember and you’re sensitive to your furry friends’ potential anxiety as they encounter unexpected activity and are introduced to a new environment. Thankfully, there are plenty of resources available for traveling with pets. Here are four of our favorite things to do as we prepare to be on the move with ours!
1. Invest in pet-calming products
Any kind of travel can be stressful for your animals as they encounter the unknown and their senses are flooded with new sensations. There are plenty of products available to calm your pet’s anxieties, particularly for dogs and cats. Pheromone collars and diffusers are available to help your pet feel safe and secure. Lavender oil can be sprinkled inside a carrier for a calming effect. Chew tablets containing vitamins and natural flower and root extracts offer relief to many animals. A pet calming vest, which applies gentle pressure to specific areas in order to reduce anxiety, is an accessory to consider. And have you heard of pet-calming music? Similar to classical music but slower, simpler, and in a lower key, this music can provide a comforting soundtrack in a noisy world. Don’t forget to check with your vet before using any new products with your pets.
2. Find a trusted pet mover
You don’t need to worry if you’re unable to transport your pet yourself. Air Animal Pet Movers is a family-owned pet relocation service. Over the past 40 years, it has grown into one of the most comprehensive and well-respected pet shipping companies in the country. A family-owned business with over 50 years of veterinarian experience, Air Animal Pet Movers loves animals and understands both the medical and psycho-social needs of relocating pets. As pet owners themselves, their pet moving specialists can be trusted to help your beloved animal travel in comfort – they have successfully moved more than 100,000 animals over the last four decades!
3. Utilize pet travel apps
There’s no shortage of helpful apps out there to assist you in keeping your pet comfortable and healthy while traveling. Here are just a few of our favorites:
Vetfinder – This app uses your current location to help you find a nearby veterinarian or emergency animal clinic and allows you to refine your search by specialist.
Red Cross Pet First Aid – Perfect for helping you prepare for any kind of pet emergency. This app allows you to enter your pet’s info and keep track of things like diet restrictions, medications and vet appointments, and also gives you step-by-step instructions for many pet health problems. Rather than having to frantically search the internet in an emergency, you’ll have it all at your fingertips.
Dog Park Finder – This app uses your current location to help you find pet-friendly parks, as well as alerting you to any that state, “No Dogs Allowed”.
A fabulous online resource can be found at GoPetFriendly.com/road-trip-planner. Plug in your starting point and your destination and find pet-friendly restaurants, activities, services and more along your route.
4. Book a NowLeasing Suite
We love pets! And we know you will appreciate the comfort and luxury of staying with your furry friend in one of our beautiful temporary furnished homes rather than holing up in a motel that allows animals. We offer many suites such as these at Tapestry Brentwood, which provides an on-site pet spa with a washing and drying station. You and your pets will feel welcome and at home, which is exactly what you’ll need at the end of your travels.
Contact us to book your pet-friendly suite in some of the finest residential communities across the country.
Traveling and moving with pets present unique challenges, but there are many resources out there to help you prepare and to give you peace of mind. Take advantage of them, and let the (pet-friendly) adventure begin!
Does a corporate relocation have you feeling like you’re stuck in limbo, trying to find the perfect home in Nashville while managing all of the other details and stresses that moving brings? Is it time for you to downsize, or does your growing family require more space, but you’re struggling to find a new home in the midst of the housing inventory shortage in Tennessee’s major cities? Are you building your dream house – and is it taking forever?
Nashville’s reputation as an “It City” continues to grow.
The city’s affordable cost of living, quality of life, arts and cultural scene, and beautiful parks and lakes make it an attractive destination for relocation. With each month that passes, more companies – and their employees – are moving to town. AllianceBernstein, a New York-based global investment management firm, just recently announced that it is bringing 1,050 jobs to Nashville. Nashville expects to see an increase in population of a million people over the next five years! All of these moves to the city add to its low housing inventory.
Memphis finds itself in a similar situation.
With a shortage of houses on the market, even buyers who are prepared to act find themselves without many options. New listings typically generate multiple offers and sell quickly, and it can end up taking much longer than anticipated to find that perfect, or even close-to-perfect, home.
This high demand often leaves builders with a problem – a shortage of skilled laborers.
For every five tradesmen currently retiring, only one apprentice is in training to fill their position. Contractors often have to wait long periods of time for various brick-layers, foundation experts, and framing and flooring crews to be available. It’s estimated that the time it takes to build a home has increased by 20 to 30 percent because of this worker shortage. Having a house built can be stressful, particularly if you find yourself in a time crunch. Where do you go while you wait the extra time it takes to finish your new home?
If you find yourself in any of these situations, we’ve got the perfect solution for you.

Memphis brings to mind images of barbeque, Elvis, and the blues. And while the city boasts a multitude of great places to enjoy each of these things, it has even more to offer. Whether you’re staying for weeks or months, there is plenty to discover in Memphis that will surprise, woo, and delight you. Come with us as we explore a few Memphis classics, peek into the windows of several luxury boutiques, and sample the delicious offerings at some of the city’s best restaurants and nightclubs. It\’s our Luxury Destination Guide – Memphis Edition.
20twelve: Located in the Broad Avenue Arts District – one of the most interesting and innovative places in the city – 20twelve is an ultra-modern, well-curated boutique filled with the latest fashionable pieces. From clothing to accessories, bags to beauty products, you’ll find new designers to love at this fashion-forward destination shopping experience.
Mednikow Jewelry: Offering fine jewelry with a distinctly Southern appeal, this boutique provides the discerning shopper with pieces of unmatched quality and design.

Stock & Belle: A fun and funky spot carrying multiple local and small indie brands, Stock & Belle also houses Low Fi Coffee shop inside their location in the heart of the South Main Arts District. Women’s and men’s clothing, furniture and home goods, art and curiosities, and excellent coffee? We’re sold. In town on the last Friday of the month?

The Rendezvous: Memphis is known for its barbeque, and you can’t go far without stumbling across a restaurant smelling of smoke and offering up ribs, pulled pork sandwiches, and tender brisket. There are countless places to try, but we suggest starting at Charles Vergos’ Rendezvous. Operating out of a basement off an alley in downtown Memphis since 1948, Rendezvous serves their signature dry rub ribs to locals, tourists, and celebrities alike.
Paulette’s: Paulette’s has been a Memphis favorite for 40 years, and for good reason. Located near the river in the scenic community of Harbor Town, it’s the perfect place for business meetings, romantic dinners, and gatherings with family and friends. The food is delicious – don’t miss the hot popovers with strawberry butter – the wine menu is fabulous, and the service is unparalleled.
Flight Restaurant and Wine Bar: Flight offers small plates of beautifully prepared food served in flights of 3 as well as wine flights specially designed to pair perfectly with the food. Try a flight of steak (filet, elk, and bison), a flight of soup (lobster bisque, seafood gumbo, and a soup of the day) and end with a flight of dessert (too many amazing options to list). An innovative approach and a memorable experience.
Andrew Michael Italian Kitchen: An elegant setting with multiple rooms, a cozy bar, and open-air eating near the herb and vegetable gardens, Andrew Michael features innovative Italian cooking rooted in Southern tradition. Their housemade pastas and locally sourced meats shine, and their staff makes excellent suggestions to appease multiple palates. Try their special “no-menu” tasting dinner on the last Monday of each month for a special treat.
Beale Street : No guide to Memphis would be complete without mention of this iconic home of the Blues. With live music venues, famous soul food diners, and funky shops, there’s plenty to keep you entertained. Finish your night at King’s Palace Cafe’s Absinthe Room for a potent, colorful drink or 2 complete with a small, flaming sugar cube.
Mollie Fontaine Lounge: Located in a beautiful historic home in the heart of the Victorian Village, Mollie Fontaine offers a chic, edgy lounge with a full-service bar upstairs and down as well as the option to sit on their delightful patio. Small plates are big on flavor and the music offerings are on point.
Memphis Grizzlies: Basketball fans can take in a game at FedExForum and cheer the Grizzlies on!
Earnestine and Hazel’s: Dive bar. Soul Burger. Greatest jukebox in the country. And rumored to be haunted. Need we say more?

One of the many major decisions you will need to make during and after a divorce is where you will choose to live temporarily. You may have been told or realized one of the following:
- It s best to move out to keep peace in the home.
- The negotiations have been finalized and it s time to move on… and decide what to do next.
- Your new home isn t ready to move into yet.
For various reasons, Nashville and Memphis area divorcees will most likely experience a time when you will need temporary housing during a divorce.
We d like to recommend a Now Leasing fully furnished rental. Here s why…
We can help you find the perfect temporary kid-friendly short term stay.
Your family therapist, pastor, and attorney will most likely tell you that the children need as few disruptions as possible during divorce. They need consistency, familiarity and peace in order to heal and thrive after divorce. Children also need to be close to both parents, school and their friends. Attorneys and therapists will recommend keeping a child s environment as calm and as familiar as you can during this life-changing experience.
Now Leasing can help you find the perfect kid-friendly temporary home in Brentwood, Franklin, Germantown, Nashville, Memphis and the surrounding areas. Your children can have the same comforts they’ve become accustomed to- parks, playgrounds, entertainment, school and more. Our rentals are furnished with the luxury and comfort they need to get them through this difficult season and help them transition into their new lives.
There s no need to lower your standard of comfort.
During this difficult season, divorcees in Franklin, Brentwood, Germantown and other Memphis and Nashville areas will often need to move from their luxurious 4,000 square ft. custom dream home to a much smaller space. Furnishings generally stay in the home until the settlement has been finalized. We have good news for you: You don t have to settle for below average temporary housing with sub-standard furnishings.
Now Leasing is the ideal temporary and fully furnished experience for downsizing and transitioning. Our designer furnishings and decor are similar to what you experienced in your previous home. Unlike an extended stay hotel, your comfort level will not change. You can have the comforts you need to heal and move forward into your new life.
There is flexibility with a Now Leasing experience
You have no way of knowing how long your divorce will take. In Tennessee, if you have minor children, there s a 90-day cooling off period no matter how simple or complicated your divorce process. Otherwise, the cooling off period is 60 days. And lets face it; We’ve all heard the horror stories of divorces lasting anywhere from 1-2 years. Often times with larger estates divorces become more complicated and can last longer.
Now Leasing offers flexible leasing options. Accommodations can be weekly, monthly or yearly. You don t have to worry about making too much of a commitment to a lease. Flexible lease terms give you the freedom to take your time and decide what s best for your future housing needs during and after your divorce is final.
New single life
Our Now Leasing experiences are located in the best parts of Brentwood, Nashville, Franklin, Germantown and the Greater Memphis area. These are some of the most vibrant and active cities in the USA. You are within steps of entertainment, nightlife, phenomenal dining experiences and more.
Our rentals are complete with on-site amenities like exercise facilities, saunas, restaurants and more. Amenities can also include fantastic community spaces, 5 star swimming pools, hot tubs, fire pits, grills, and tennis courts. Ideal and non-threatening spaces to get out and meet new friends, and perhaps find new love. It s the perfect environment for healing and moving on.
We are here to help divorcees in the Nashville and Memphis areas navigate temporary housing decisions during the separation and divorce process. There s no need to lower your level of comfort. Let your Now Leasing experts help you find the perfect transitional, fully furnished space that will help you move into your new life beyond marriage.

The Now Leasing Experience vs the Extended Stay Hotel
When booking short-term corporate housing in Nashville or Memphis, the first thought many people have is to book an extended stay motel or hotel. These furnished mini-suites have become a go-to staple for rentals needed beyond a few days. Extended stay hotel rentals are a safe bet- generally nice, clean and somewhat easy on the budget and on the eyes. But why play it safe?
What if we told you there s a much better, more appealing alternative to extended stay hotels in Nashville and Memphis? And it s probably within your travel budget. Would you be interested?
If so, read on…
It s time to ditch the bad photos and the temperamental air conditioner in your nice-enough suite. Don t settle for being stuck in seclusion near the airport where the only thing to eat is the chain restaurant next door full of screaming kids. You have far too much to do and see to waste away in a cookie cutter extended stay hotel.
Our Now Leasing suites offer short-term corporate and personal renters a more peaceful, luxurious experience in the hottest and trendiest parts of Nashville and Memphis. Close to everything you need to see. And well within your financial reach!
Here are 5 reasons to choose the Now Leasing experience over an extended stay chain hotel in Memphis and Nashville:
Location, Location, Location
While most extended stay hotels like to set up shop in the industrial graveyard (often way out by the airport), Now Leasing offers executive suites in the nicest and trendiest apartment and condo buildings in and around Nashville and Memphis. Our luxury suites often overlook the lights of downtown, offering easy access nightlife, fine dining, and entertainment. Want something quieter? We also have luxury suites in the more quaint parts of town. Close to shopping, farmer s markets and some of the best comfort food in the South!
No Equality in Quality
At Now Leasing, we believe you shouldn’t have to wonder if your comforter has been washed or if your water glasses are clean. Our clients are met with the highest level of service standards. You can be sure that our luxury residential options are the best in town. Our Memphis and Nashville furnished residential homes are more than a place to live and sleep. We outfit all of our properties with unique designer furnishings. Our suites are more than just beautiful on the inside, too. Take advantage of lush gardens and hiking trails or cool off in beautiful pools with outdoor cabanas, billiards tables and fireplaces. Our quality surroundings cannot be matched!
It seems that the best an extended stay hotel can offer in amenities is a small kitchen with a stove that you can’t fit a skillet on. At Now Leasing, you can get a beautiful full chef s kitchen with granite countertops, new appliances and a fridge that can fit more than a few airplane bottles. You can actually host a dinner party with business clients or make a home cooked meal for a night in. Enjoy pools, saunas, gyms, theatres and more. We have a long list of amenities you can find here.
At any run-of-the-mill extended-stay hotel, a quick trip down to guest services is all it takes to get tips on where to go or what to do. The only problem is, they tend to only send you to chain restaurants close to the hotel or to attractions you might visit on a 6th-grade field trip. At Now Leasing, our concierge services give you the hottest spots in town for dining and entertainment. We also help you with reservations and help you pick the perfect night out based on your specific likes and interests. Whether you are looking for unique and upscale shopping, the best spa experiences, or those eateries that only the locals know about, the Now Leasing team is here to help you find the best experiences in Memphis and Nashville. We will help you go home with a story to tell.
Do you find yourself dreading the move-out after a month in a room? At Now Leasing, our dedicated team can work directly with your employer to take care of all the details. We even help you with move-out! Now Leasing will talk to your employer to arrange the perfect place, close to where you need to be for work. Our team can help you get moved in and plan your stay while you are here. When it is time for you to depart, we arrange checkout, help you move your baggage to the airport, secure a ride and we even return items like formal attire.
Choose Now Leasing, You ll Be Glad You Did!
Let your stay in Nashville and Memphis be filled with good business deals, new friends, memories, experiences you will never forget, and incredible food. We are here to make your life easier while giving you the best that Nashville and Memphis Tennessee has to offer. Let the team at Now Leasing help you find the perfect short-term residential suite in Nashville or Memphis. We can t wait to meet you!

Remote Workers Can Work From Anywhere…
Here s Why it Should Be Nashville.
If you could work from home and didn’t need to go into the office ever again, where would you live?
Working from home is becoming less a luxury and more the standard in the 21st century. Record numbers of remote workers around the globe now make their own hours, raise families, go on trips and often… work in their pajamas!
One of the biggest perks of remote working is living ANYWHERE you want.
These days, more and more people are saying farewell to the office, along with bad coffee, impatient bosses and break-room birthday cake. These workers are smartening up and taking their workplace to the comfort and relaxation of their own homes. And guess what also finding productivity numbers are going up once the stresses of office life go away! Now Leasing believes that home-based workers are starting to not only look beyond their office buildings but also the cities in which they live.
So to those executives we ask why not Nashville?
The United States Census states, As communication and information technologies advance, workers are increasingly able to perform work at home. Since work is often more than simply a means of making a living, but tends to dictate how people organize their lives, changes in work patterns have both economic and social implications.
Of all the incredible cities in America, how do home-based workers choose where to move themselves and their families? They start by doing some research. They look at school success rates, cost of living, crime rates, economic security, recreation, weather, culinary diversity, cultural diversity, political leanings, real estate, traffic and even how nice the people are.
You may be wondering why Nashville so often graces the top of the list when people consider where to move. Quite simply, it is because Nashville scores high in every category that people consider when looking for a new home. If you don’t believe us, just take a look at the growing numbers of people who moved to Nashville in the past decade alone:
Downtown Nashville Residential Population Growth
Here are a few more lists that Nashville topped in the past few years:
Nashville Ranks No. 13 in 100 Best Cities to Live
US News & World Report: Best Places to Live
Men’s Journal: The 10 Best Places To Live Now
Nashville Ranked 13th Best Place To Live
Think Nashville may not be the best fit for your particular demographic or lifestyle? Think again! Nashville is the perfect fit for ANY remote worker lifestyle
…Its Excellent for Executives
According to the most recent Census, about one-fourth of home-based workers were in management, business, and financial occupations. Many of these positions are corporate executives. Often, companies will send their executives all over the country, closing deals and opening up new branches, leaving many of these executives working from hotels, airports and coffee shops. Now Leasing offers luxury executive and corporate suites to these executives and we see how often they decide to hang their hats in Nashville! In a job where all planes, offices and continental breakfasts look the same, Music City offers a splash of color, culture and excitement to come home to. Not to mention, more bang for your buck in the residential market as compared to New York or Los Angeles.
It’s time to try out Nashville for yourself!
…A Must For Millennials
We re seeing a boom in companies hiring at-home workers from Apple to Amazon! Amazon recently announced that they will be hiring 5,000 home-based workers. They understand that employees who are happy and not stressed by the daily rigors of office life perform better, leading to better productivity and an improved bottom line. For young professionals, there are distinct advantages to working from home in Nashville.
- Great networking and connection groups.
- Above standard music and arts scene.
- One of the new creative hot-spots in the country.
- Valuable multi-industrial networking events for young professionals in Nashville which can lead to home-based workers feeling more connected than they were in an office.
…Great for Golden Workers
Working from Nashville can be an excellent option for senior workers. According to the U.S. Census, About 1 in 10 workers who worked exclusively from home were over the age of 65 in 2010 and that number has only grown. Since Nashville is such a great place for people of all ages, you can make amazing memories with the kids and grandkids by going to hockey games or live music! You may still be working from your home office but the moment you clock out, you have the Nashville playground at your disposal to make new memories.
…Perfect For Working Parents
In a recent study conducted by Remote.co of nearly 130 remote companies, they found businesses with large remote workforces have a higher percentage of women in leadership roles than traditional office-based companies. They also found that 72% of women in leadership roles were parents or caregivers. Nashville is perfect for parents for many reasons including schools, kid s recreational activities and more.
Here are some great reasons why parenting in Nashville is one of the best experiences in the U.S.:
- Play at the Country Music Hall of Fame’s Musical Petting Zoo, offering young musicians the chance to try new and familiar instruments.
- Andrew Jackson’s Hermitage: Home of the People’s President features special activities for kids.
- Visit Nashville Public Library and dive deep into a good book, or join story time.
- Enjoy the great parks around Music City like Centennial Park, home of the iconic Parthenon. Kidsville provides excellent activities to get children engaged in arts, storytelling, crafts & more.
- Nashville Children’s Theatre is ranked as one of the top five children’s theaters in the U.S. by TIME magazine.
- Catch an awesome kid show at the Belcourt Theatre.
- Check out the Nashville Shores, a 385-acre water-filled play area for the entire family.

Call today to book your Now Leasing luxury corporate suite.
Nashville is HOTTER and in more demand than it has been in any year in our history. Because of this trend, corporate housing has become high in demand, leaving many business travelers stuck without a home away from home or resigned to a mediocre corporate suite.
Places like the spectacular new Nashville Convention Center along with a multitude of professional conferences and other business attractions have brought RECORD NUMBERS of corporate executives and visitors to Music City for business purposes.
While some companies may have difficulty booking even subpar, mediocre corporate suites for their employees due to availability, clients of Now Leasing are finding and securing THE PREMIERE luxury corporate suites in the hottest locations around Nashville, Memphis and other hot and growing USA cities.
According to the Corporate Housing Industry Presentation published by the General Services Administration, the average number of nights stayed for a corporate housing booking currently sits at about 85 nights. This number is up from 78 nights per booking just ten years ago.
When it comes to Memphis and Nashville, TN more people are coming and they are staying longer, which further complicates corporate suite availability.
According to the Nashville Convention & Visitors Bureau, Nashville saw 13.9 million visitors this past year alone. This can make finding available space for an 80-90 day stay quite difficult. For this reason Now Leasing continues to secure and provide the finest corporate suites located in the hottest areas of booming Nashville and Memphis.
Many companies are selling extended stay for the masses, resulting in customers not receiving the QUALITY and LIFESTYLE they have worked so hard to achieve. Options like these (which can often contain extended-stay hotels, full service hotels, condos and apartment communities) do not always provide the full list of amenities that OUR clients are seeking. The following data from CHPA shows more clearly the benefits of corporate housing as opposed to alternative options.
It s clear that corporate suites are the better investment, even without factoring in the far-above-industry standards that Now Leasing provides. Not only are our properties state of the art in design and technology, but also delivers an excellent hospitality experience. We are happy to be your partner while we have the pleasure of hosting you in hot Music City.
Now Leasing has the perfect place for you, your associates and your family! Every executive has a different story and a different lifestyle when they clock out. While you are a client of Now Leasing, you will be working with a company that creates the luxurious and unwinding experience when you walk through the door.
Is your idea of unwinding a nightcap with co-workers after closing the big deal?
How about a nice family dinner with bedtime stories at the end?
Or perhaps a Martini before a night out on the town listening to good music?
Your idea of luxury and unwinding can be ANYTHING YOU WANT it to be with Now Leasing. You work hard so we are here to do the same for you by finding you the best possible place in Nashville to live.
Our goal is to deliver you the spoils of what you work so hard for. Let us encourage you to not wait until everything is booked. DO NOT SETTLE for something less than you deserve.
