Larry Lipman | Owner and Realtor® | Leadership
I suppose you want to know who I am and what I’m about. I could give you a list of my accolades or guide you through the last 32 years of my experience, but instead, I would like to take the next paragraph to help direct you with your real estate needs and offer a snapshot of our company in hopes that you can find exactly what you are looking for. After 18 years as Lipman Realty, an additional 11 years with a well-known real estate franchise, and now RE/MAX Homes and Estates, Lipman Group, I believe we know a good amount about maintaining and growing our most valuable resource – our client and agent relationship. We strive to work diligently and focus on our clients’ goals, and achieve success through living and striving to be a relationship-based company. We believe it is all about our clients. Fortunately, our company allows our reach to stretch from this beautiful city to an international forum, but I will always be a Nashvillian, a community builder, a businessman, a husband, a father, a relationship activist, and a man of my word.
Chris Grimes | Managing Broker | Leadership
Alaska-born, Atlanta raised, and a lover of Nashville, I was born the eldest of four children…and growing up in a house with three strong-willed siblings, I developed a tendency to lead, to negotiate, and to extend grace. In 2003, I attended Barney Fletcher’s Real Estate School in Atlanta, Georgia, and embarked on my own path in the real estate industry. My great-grandfather and my grandfather both enjoyed success in real estate investments, so when my mom and I started our careers in real estate in 2003, we felt we could also do well. In 2014, I accepted Larry Lipman’s invitation to join his firm. While working under Larry’s leadership, I found myself studying under a consummate professional who exemplifies grace and tact – treating every client with the utmost respect. I am excited to be working in Nashville’s only RE/MAX Collection office: RE/MAX Homes and Estates, Lipman Group. When I’m not working or tending to my spouse’s and my farmette – home to our fruit grove, 23 chickens, 4 cats, and 3 dogs – I enjoy investing time in organizations that help better the community such as Greater Nashville Realtors and Nashville’s Antiques & Garden Show.
