Our Favorite Books of 2019

It’s a constant goal of ours to continue honing our craft for our real estate clients and to become better citizens of the world, and one of our favorite ways to do that is through reading (and listening to) books/audiobooks. Below are some of Ron and Stephanie’s favorites from the past year and a few we’re currently reading. We read some of these multiple times and read some of them together or with Stephanie’s kids and mom. We usually work through a few at once so we don’t make good book club members, but we’d love to chat about any of these that you’ve read too! We would also love to hear about any books that you would recommend to us for the new year!

If you or your kids struggle to get excited about reading, find a Little Free Library near you, join a book club at your local library, start a virtual book club, connect with us on Goodreads, get lost for a few hours at McKay’s Bookstore, or choose a book that has a film adaptation so you have a movie to look forward to when you’re done reading!

About the Author

My wife and I live in Donelson, where we both were raised and graduated from high school (DCA Classes of 1983 and 1984).  Our current home is on the Cumberland River, very close to my childhood home and the former homes of both my McDonald and Rice grandparents.

Our daughter and son are grown now, and our daughter, Stephanie Miller, is my real estate partner.  She lives in Lebanon with her husband and their two children.  While Stephanie and I specialize in the areas of Downtown Nashville, Donelson, Hermitage, Old Hickory, Mt. Juliet and Lebanon, we have and do serve clients all over Middle Tennessee.

As a Nashville native, I’ve spent a lifetime watching our city evolve, and I am enthusiastic about showcasing it to others and serving their real estate needs.
