We Could Invest In Real Estate Anywhere...We Choose Memphis!

There is something special about Memphis and the people who live here.

I've been lucky enough to live in three great cities in my life.  I grew up in Dallas, Texas and loved every minute of it.  Being born in Texas, I still claim to be a Texan and I guess I always will.  I still have family, friends and business associates in the the Dallas Ft. Worth metroplex and as many of you know, my family recently started DallasInvest.com as our second city of operation.  What a great city and a fantastic place for single-family rental investments.  But that is a story for another day.  Today is all about Memphis.
