3901 Estes Road

In May, Gov. Bill Haslam’s niece once again topped the Headline Homes list — only this time it was for a sale rather than a purchase. Meharry Medical College’s CEO bought a $2.2 million home on Woodmont Boulevard, and Bob Doyle — Garth Brooks’ manager — also sold his Nashville home.
