A University of Pennsylvania graduate, Caroline Rigsby has lived in Atlanta, London, Philadelphia, San Francisco, and Boston, where she worked in investment banking and real estate development before returning to her hometown in 2005 to work with noted developer and visionary Tony Giarratana, pioneer of Nashville’s urban residential scene.
While working with Tony, Caroline sold the original thirty-three Cumberland Penthouses in downtown Nashville’s first new residential building built in a half century. She served as both construction manager and head-of-sales for the sixty-five luxury condominiums at Belle Meade Court.
As a friend of Shirley Zeitlin, another Nashville visionary, Caroline was invited to join Zeitlin Realtors in 2011. While she has sold an incredible range of property—investor condos to million dollar historic homes and cabins in Leiper’s Fork—Caroline specializes in urban luxury and Nashville’s walkable neighborhoods.
Caroline is an outdoor enthusiast and photographer. Her photos have been displayed at West Elm, The Red Bicycle Coffee & Crepes, and Music City Lofts.
My expectations for a Realtor may be higher than most because I am a Realtor myself, but because I am licensed in another state, I was unable to represent myself in TN. Caroline came highly recommended to my family’s LLC as we were looking for investment properties in Nashville and she has helped us locate two ideal properties. From showings-to-closings, Caroline not only meets, but consistently surpasses, the service and professionalism I expect. She ensures that her clients are presented with properties within their parameters and is knowledgeable about market pricing and neighborhood dynamics. She is very responsive to requests for information and thorough in providing the details necessary to make an informed decision. And best of all, she is a pleasure to work with, genuinely cares about her clients and makes long days of looking enjoyable and productive. I cannot recommend Caroline Rigsby highly enough!

We found Caroline through a friend’s recommendation and she was fantastic! Caroline is a powerhouse realtor; she has a background in construction, a solid grasp of urban neighborhoods, an eye for detail, and has a great network for home buying related referrals. More so, she is a perfect blend of personable and professional. Our requests (regardless of how minute) were met with an open mind and she worked diligently towards meeting them as though she were buying the home herself. We highly recommend her as a buyer’s realtor and when the time comes for us to sell, will definitely seek her again.

My husband and I first met Caroline in 2012 when we were purchasing our first Nashville home. Not only did we hit it off right away, as she’s a genuinely beautiful person, but she had us close on our home in less than a week and the process could not have been smoother! We were actually out of town during the closing and she seamlessly navigated us through it all over the phone. Her communication skills and dedication to her clients are excellent and we could not have been happier. We have since worked with Caroline on the selling of our home as well as in the search of investment properties, and we truly cannot say enough good things about her! She is an absolute gem. We recently sold our home and needed some details taken care of before putting it on the market. Caroline referred us to a contractor who had a team of people come out and take care of it all. When we listed she had us under contract at full price in 24 hours! Having worked with many realtors over the years in Nashville, Miami and Spain I appreciate how talented and invested Caroline is at what she does. We are very grateful for having met her and having had her help and advice over the years. Her professionalism, knowledge and dedication is stellar and I highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. Whether you’re buying or selling, she will open your eyes to just how much a great realtor can help you have a successful real estate transaction.

I was a first-time home buyer in a new city and was very happy to have Caroline to guide me through the process. I moved into my new home less than 7 weeks from arriving in Nashville and meeting Caroline. Friends and family said it can’t move that fast and it won’t go that smooth, but it did! I shared with Caroline my top requests of a new home and that first Saturday she picked me up with 10+ listings printed and we proceeded around town. It took a couple of weekends looking at many locations and we found the one. She showed it to me on a Saturday and again on Sunday to do a final comparison and Monday the offer went in. Caroline kept me informed of what to expect in the process – what we were waiting on, what were the next steps, and whose responsibility it was. She had me prepared so there were no surprises. I would highly recommend working with Caroline. As a single home buyer in particular, she was a great help in adjusting around my work schedule and making the most effective and efficient use of my time, which was greatly appreciated.

My husband and I found Caroline Rigsby through recommendations from a mutual friend. As we were moving from out-of-state in the spring of 2016, we were in need of a very reliable realtor and adviser regarding the Nashville area. We found such a person in Caroline. She is extremely competent, knowledgeable, professional and is very personable to boot! It was a pleasure to do business with her even though we were communicating long-distance. She provided expert advice and has comprehensive knowledge of the Nashville area and its environs. Caroline took the time to understand what our needs and wants were. Her communication skills are excellent. When we arrived for our abbreviated house hunt, she was ready to hit the ground running. Due to her invaluable guidance and resources, in our short time allotted, we entered into escrow on a wonderful property. We left town happy and satisfied that Caroline had found the very best property for our family. Our home purchase went off smoothly and without a hitch due to her hard work and dedication. Now that we are here, we are truly enjoying our lovely home. It is my pleasure to recommend Caroline Rigsby to anyone who wishes to have a true professional (and lovely person!) as their Realtor.

Caroline made the experience of buying our first home much easier than we could have imagined. She is detail-oriented and walked us through each step of the process with impressive expertise and appreciation for our wishes. Caroline’s professionalism and knowledge of Nashville real estate, builders and mortgage lenders gave us confidence that we were getting the best deal for our family. We would not change anything about our experience working with Caroline and will highly recommend her to all friends and family. She will be our realtor when we sell or buy a house again in the future.

We have used Caroline Rigsby for three purchases in Nashville over the past two years. Her professionalism and knowledge of the real estate market in Nashville have made each one a smooth and worry-free transaction. As out-of-town purchasers, she has been able to take our checklist for a property and help us find the right ones with efficiency and the knowledge that we were making the right choices. Her attention to detail and followup contact go above and beyond the ordinary service you would expect from an agent. We plan to continue using Caroline in the future and would recommend her to any purchaser or seller in Nashville.

I was introduced to Caroline through a colleague at work when I first found out I would be moving to Nashville from Michigan. Working with her was one of the most pleasurable experiences in an extremely stressful situation; buying my first house. From the start she was easily accessible, answered emails/texts/phone calls promptly and professionally. I was living out of state at the time, so electronic communication was our only option, and it was very reassuring to have “someone on the ground,” so to speak, who was in my corner. By the time I actually got to Nashville I felt very prepared and confident to look at the places she had sent me prior to my arrival. She was with me for every step of the way, making sure all the t’s were crossed and i’s were dotted – I couldn’t have asked for a better Buyer’s agent. But our relationship didn’t end once the closing documents had been signed. She has continued to help me make my first house into a home by referring me to different contractors for various projects around the house. Most recently, an old leak in my dining room ceiling opened back up within a few months of purchase. After unsuccessfully reaching out to the seller’s agent to find out who did the previous repair, Caroline took it upon herself to get the ceiling repaired for me. I don’t know of too many agents that would have done that. I feel confident in highly recommending her to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home in the future!

My husband and I recently worked with Caroline Rigsby on our move from Indianapolis to the Nashville area. Not being from the area it was a bit challenging for us to determine where we should live. Caroline helped us through the process of finding a part of town that worked best for us. We only had one weekend to come down and house hunt. She lined up 12 houses for us to view over 2 days and we found our home the first day. The entire process was very easy. Caroline kept us informed throughout the offer, inspection and up to closing. I would definitely recommend Caroline to others. She knows the area very well and she is more than competent in navigating the buying process.

Thank you so much for your assistance in helping us locate and purchase our first condo! We could not be happier with the service you provided. You made yourself available when we could look at possibilities – even when the timing may not have been the most convenient for you – and you were always reachable whenever we had a question. From the get-go you demonstrated incredible patience with us, kept on finding properties that you knew we needed to visit, understood the market extremely well, and made sure everything fell into place at the right time for us. The end result: a successful search and purchase, and we’re exactly where we need to be! We’ve bought and sold several homes over the past 25+ years, and know how difficult the process can be at times, but your efforts made this purchase so seamless and easy for us. We would (and will) recommend you to anyone else we hear might be looking to buy or sell a condo or house. Thanks again! With all our respect …
– Rick & Audrey L. (Buyers)
Simply put, we could not have done it without Caroline. We were very pleased with Caroline’s accessibility, but even more so with her helpful attitude when we needed to speak with her after business hours and on weekends. She is sincere in her desire to help, which is a big relief to us as first time homebuyers who definitely required extra attention. We are now moving into a home that is absolutely perfect. Thank you, Caroline, and we will definitely recommend you to our friends.
