About CHORD Real Estate

It all began years ago when Founder Steve Luther noticed several high net worth individuals being taken advantage of solely because of their lack of time to oversee the details.

Steve shared: “We’ve all heard stories of young athletes, newly signed artists and others being ‘taken’ by ‘professionals.’  I determined then to develop a brokerage that IRRESPECTIVE of price point would:

  • Provide ALL clientele with an unmatched level of services
  • Charge competitive rates
  • Maintain clients’ privacy with the strictest discretion, and given my own personal background in I.T., incorporate the very latest in technology.”

With the addition of wife and Managing Broker/Founder Ashley Luther and former Music Industry Executive & Founder Van Hohe, Steve found just the right core team to bring his vision to fruition.  

Now the team has grown and incorporates Realtors from many aspects of Nashville’s professional traditions including Health Care, Sports, Entertainment, International Business, Hospitality and more.  The widely talented agents at CHORD Nashville are now fully resourced by our signature Concierge Service, acclaimed stagers and executive staff.  We truly look forward to serving you!
