Opposites excel at Property Shop
Brown, Patty use diverse skills, interests to build success
When Diane Patty and Lisa Brown met while working at Loveman’s 33 years ago, they could not have been more different.
Their disparities spanned politics (Patty the conservative, Brown the liberal), religion (Patty a Baptist, Brown a Methodist) and, perhaps most precariously, sports.
Preparation the key to Patty’s success
Carmen Patty was 23 and ready to conquer the world of real estate. Her first stop: a tumbledown property with two houses. The price: $30,000.
An out-of-town buyer had found the listing and stayed with the deal until closing day. Then she bailed.

View from the Hill: Haslam less clear than usual on run for US Senate
Gov. Bill Haslam usually gives an answer to every question, even if his subjects and verbs don’t agree. But when it comes to a potential run for the U.S. Senate, he stumbles.

Vols' shaky start exposes raw nerves as Dawgs roll in
Tennessee football coach Butch Jones had more than Georgia on his mind this week.
Rumors on message boards and reports on sports talk radio flamed the fires around Jones and the Vols after last Saturday’s 17-13 victory over Massachusetts at Neyland Stadium.
New Vols AD fixing Hart’s errors. Jones next?
What does John Currie’s decision to reinstitute the name “Lady Vols” for all women’s sports at the University of Tennessee have to do with Butch Jones? Bear with me:

Make your kitchen a keeper
Your kitchen is probably the most important room in your house. It’s where your kids do their homework, where your friends come for coffee, where you pay your bills and – for most of us – where we cook our meals.
It’s also one of the first things at which home shoppers look, which is why experts in the home design profession pay close attention to color, pattern, lighting and appliance trends.

If you want to enjoy a comfortable retirement lifestyle, you don’t need to have been born rich or even to have earned scads of money during your working years.
