Headline Homes: June 2018

5102 Pickney Drive, Brentwood

The June list of Middle Tennessee’s most expensive home purchases doesn’t have a single sale under $2 million. A couple of Floridian football vets showed up on the list: One is a former Miami Dolphins offensive tackle, and the other is a former executive for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers organization. Also, the creator of The Healing Code — known professionally as Dr. Alex — purchased a home in Brentwood.
