Live in Downtown Nashville in a Custom Loft at 227 2nd Avenue North

Originally constructed in 1911 to house a denim factory, this historic building in Downtown Nashville has been meticulously converted into three exclusive single level lofts. Each loft includes a private garage bay which easily houses two cars with the optional lift system. From the private garage, enter this exclusive building with an automated video door entry system that leads through the lobby to the building’s original brass elevator now fully restored to include smart phone enabled secure entrance to each private home.

The elevator doors open into the perfect marriage of historic and modern. Nineteenth century brick walls and beech hardwood floors are the ideal backdrop against the contemporary light fixtures, gleaming marble counters and soaring 13’ ceilings. The luxurious kitchen includes a 12’ marble island and Viking kitchen package with commercial grade gas cooktop, double ovens, and refrigerated wine storage. Red lantern pendants originally housed in the Grand Ole Opry train station continue the loft’s historic theme while automated Lutron lighting, temperature, and speaker control wiring offer modern convenience.

An additional window wall at the far end of the loft allows still more natural light to pour into the ample living area. The perfectly appointed powder bath and separate office space complete the picture of functional and beautiful urban living.

Welcome Marcus Affeldt to RE/MAX Homes and Estates

The Lipman Group Sotheby’s International Realty is thrilled to welcome Marcus Affeldt as an affiliate broker.

blockquoteI moved to the greater Nashville area from the West Coast in the summer of 2009. Since then, my time here has been a textbook whirlwind of excitement, opportunity, luck, and hard work. I came to the volunteer state as a hungry musician, eager to take advantage of all that “Music City” had to offer. I was not disappointed. Almost immediately I felt the hospitality, electricity, creativity, and charm that so many people who visit the area fall in love with. I felt opportunity. I felt excitement. I felt community. I knew that Nashville was my home.

Marcus Affeldt, RE/MAX Homes and EstatesDuring my first year as a proper “Nashvillian”, I earned the opportunity to work and travel with some of Country and Pop music’s most A-List artists such as Sugarland, Lady Antebellum, Sara Bareilles, and One Republic. It was through these experiences that I gained a better understanding of the “real” Nashville. It was through these experiences that I built (and still maintain), friendships and strong industry relationships that will last a lifetime.

Despite Nashville winning my heart, I’ve always taken pride in my desire to never stop exploring, (or learning). Last year alone, my wife and I backpacked through 35 cities and 17 countries. I set out to learn more about the culture, architecture, community, and diversity that made each place we visited so unique. We slept on couches, in hostels, on trains, or any other place that we could rest our heads. Talk about gaining a new appreciation for real estate! I started to understand the value of finding a place to “put down roots”. It was during these travels, that I started to realize my passion for helping others find a place to call home.

Finding your niche in Nashville can be difficult without an insider’s perspective. Being such a diverse and growing area, the landscape is (literally) changing daily. From 12 South, to Germantown, to East Nashville, to Brentwood, to Franklin, to Green Hills, Nashville has something special to offer for everyone. The trick is knowing where to look. As someone who frequents many different areas of the city on a consistent basis, I have an in-depth understanding of Nashville’s unique and increasingly diverse communities.

I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Marketing and Business Administration from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. I am also a member of the Greater Nashville Association of Realtors (GNAR).

When not helping clients achieve their real estate goals, I actively compose music for network television such as ABC, CBS, NBC, MTV, HGTV, and Discovery. Chances are, you’ve already heard a good deal of my music on your newest favorite reality TV show!

It is my goal to provide clients with a unique and a creative approach to fulfilling their real estate needs.
