At NowLeasing, a family-owned business, a distinct spirit of family and camaraderie, of looking out for each other and for our customers, is what influences the culture and tone inside our offices.
We’ve said it before but we can never say it enough – each of our employees is an important member of our team, valued for his or her unique strengths and years of experience. It’s our hope that, by sharing a bit about each one with you, you’ll understand just what makes the NowLeasing family so unique within the Corporate Housing and Relocation industry.
Today, we are excited to introduce you to…Christine Lea Caldwell!
Christine is the Operations Manager, the “Ship Captain”, at our Nashville branch. She is bright, friendly, helpful and full of confidence – this lady can do just about anything! Christine is our newbie – she joined our team in April of 2018 after spending 4 years in the real estate world, where she managed some of Nashville’s Top Producer real estate teams, at 3 different brokerages in the Downtown area. This managerial experience has been invaluable as she has transitioned into her vital role with us.
An integral part of Christine’s day-to-day job is assisting individuals and corporations who are in need of or currently in residence at NowLeasing’s Nashville properties. She enjoys managing reservations, speaking with clients and assisting them with their various needs, but as a self-described “Numbers Person” she also gets to utilize her many strengths by digging deeper into the company’s daily operations to manage, update and create new systems. She likes gathering information and really getting down to brass tacks, researching rental rates, profit & loss, and analyzing how many of which type of units they need to meet Nashville’s temporary housing needs.
These logistical strengths, along with the company’s culture of support and the Now Leasing team’s synergy, were behind one of her greatest moments on the job. Recently, not just one but two large film crews were coming to Nashville and in need of housing for their production crew and cast members.
Christine and her team were able to prepare 30+ units – including special requests for furnishings, floor plans, unit location and amenities – in a span of only 2 weeks. “This was a real eye-opener,” remembers Christine. “It was a lot of work! But I felt it was a huge accomplishment for me with only being with the company for 5 months, and having the trust from, not only our President but my team, to lead this project was super validating. Everyone here works so well together and is willing to get in there and help.”
4 more things you should know about Christine…
She’s a Unicorn.
With thousands of people moving to Nashville each month, it’s getting more and more uncommon to find a native of the city – hence the name “unicorn”. But Christine, who moved here with her family when she was 7 years old and spent her formative years attending Nashville schools (Brentwood High Bruins), considers herself one of them. She’s loved watching Nashville grow and especially appreciates how welcoming and friendly its people are.
She’s a soccer fiend.
Christine played WPSL professional soccer in 2015 upon returning to Nashville after completing her double major in Marketing & Entrepreneurship at The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. AND her boyfriend is currently a member of Inter Nashville’s professional soccer club. So if she’s not at work and not at home, it’s likely you’ll find her at the soccer field.
She just finished fostering her 34th dog.
You read that right. Christine has a soft spot for rescue Pitbulls and has at least one foster dog at all times. Of the 34, 2 have made their way permanently into her heart and home: Gracie, who was her 18th foster pet, and Kingston, adopted earlier this month.
She’s got the perfect recommendation for you if you’re following the Carnivore Diet.
Christine (who does not follow the Carnivore Diet but does enjoy new dining experiences!) loves to recommend one of her favorite downtown Nashville destinations for those in need of a fun, filling dining experience. Rodizio Grill is a Brazilian steakhouse known for its mouthwatering meats and delicious cocktails. “Just make sure you don’t eat much for the whole day before you go!” she advises.
If you’re looking for a short-term, corporate suite in Nashville, Christine will be happy to take good care of you. Give her a call today!
Franklin TN – a vibrant, growing town with a unique blend of history and modernity – is tucked just 14 miles south of Nashville. While being so close to the city is certainly a draw, Franklin TN has joined the ranks of America’s Top Places to Live on its own merits.
With its charming town square, hospitable residents, fun and funky antique district, and ever-growing, innovative industries, it’s no wonder that people are flocking to this dynamic place. There are so many things to love about this area!
Here are just 4 of our favorites…
- The Thriving Economy
Franklin’s recent population surge is owed in large part to significant growth in innovation and technology-driven industries. Now the home to multiple major corporations such as Nissan North America, Mars Petcare, Verizon Wireless, Tractor Supply Co. and several others, the town has seen an impressive increase in job growth over the last few years.
Well-established companies aren’t the only ones calling the Franklin TN area “home” – over 30 percent of the small start-up Inc. 5000 companies in Tennessee are located here as well. This growth is projected to continue, creating a virtuous cycle of job creation and capital that’s infused back into the local economy. Franklin’s leaders and residents are committed to balancing this rapid growth with historic preservation, such that you’ll find a Civil War battlefield preserved in the midst of a bustling downtown.
- The Phenomenal Community Events
Speaking of downtown – Franklin’s downtown association hosts many fun events throughout the year. Two of their annual street festivals, Main Street Festival and Dickens of a Christmas, are consistently named among the best in the Southeast. The Franklin TN art scene comes alive on the first Friday of every month, when a free art crawl takes locals and tourist alike through dozens of stops in downtown Franklin’s historic buildings and highlights Williamson County’s local artistic talent.
From Bingo night at one of Main Street’s favorite pizza places to the Saturday morning Farmers Market (don’t miss the donuts!) to vintage baseball games to live shows and movies at the beautifully restored Franklin Theatre, there’s always something happening for everyone.
- Our Luxury Furnished Listings
We offer 5 beautiful locations within a few miles of this downtown Franklin TN gem. At NowLeasing we pride ourselves on providing a high-end residential experience complete with designer furnishings and all the best amenities and these listings fit the bill! With garden style tubs, club-quality fitness centers, salt water swimming pools, beautifully appointed interiors and peaceful nature trails, these residences are close to amazing retail, entertainment and dining destinations in Cool Springs as well as Brentwood and downtown Franklin. Our short term rentals are designed to provide you both the style and luxurious comfort that you want – you might just be tempted to stay in as often as you go out!
- The Incredible Food
We really can’t mention the Franklin TN and Cool Springs area without going on and on about the food. Tucked among downtown’s idyllic Main Street are old favorites like Puckett’s Grocery and Restaurant, the Franklin Mercantile Deli (the “Merc” to local devotees) and McCreary’s Irish Pub & Eatery, along with hotspots such as GRAY’S on Main and 55South. Pizza, BBQ, artisan ales – you’ll find it all here.
Can’t decide? Sign up for a Franklin Food Tour – you will not leave disappointed (or hungry). And no mention of dining options in the area would be complete without referencing the over 200 delicious destinations in Cool Springs – don’t miss Tupelo Honey Cafe or Amerigo’s Italian Restaurant.
It’s no surprise that people are clamoring to live in such a fabulous part of the country. We love being here and we want to help you find your place, too. Please get in touch to reserve your premium luxury temporary residence – we can’t wait to welcome you to Franklin!
The Gulch neighborhood in Nashville, once the site of a bustling train yard, is now one of the city’s most innovative areas. Since its revitalization began in the early 2000s, the Gulch has grown into a vibrant community marked by its green initiatives (it was the first neighborhood in the South to be LEED-ND certified), its upscale restaurants and lively nightlife and its old warehouses-turned-new-offices. While we could list dozens of things we adore about the Gulch neighborhood in Nashville, we’ve narrowed it down just a bit.
Here are 4 things we love about Nashville’s Gulch:
The Incredible Variety of Delicious Food
Whatever you’re in the mood for, the Gulch’s numerous restaurants have got you covered. Looking for seasonal, accessible comfort food and a great outdoor patio? Try Adele’s. In need of a burger glazed with Honey Bourbon and topped with local bacon? Check out Burger Republic. Searching for the perfect bowl of satisfying ramen? Look no further than Otaku Ramen. Coffee shops, juice bars, high end restaurants and pizza places, perfect biscuits and succulent hot chicken – the Gulch neighborhood in Nashville has plenty to keep you well-fed and coming back for more.
The Convenience of a Walkable Neighborhood
From its earliest planning stages, the Gulch neighboorhood in Nashville was intended to be a connected, walkable neighborhood. With restaurants, offices, retail, entertainment, and the very best in urban living within reach, a car just isn’t required. What’s more, over 10,000 jobs are located within a half mile walk of the neighborhood and most businesses. And residents are within a quarter mile of bike and walking paths. A pedestrian bridge connecting the Gulch directly to downtown is in the works and set to be completed by 2019!
Our Luxury Furnished Listings

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.
