Kayla is a Tennessee native who is proud to call the Volunteer state home! She grew up about an hour east of Nashville in a town called Cookeville and attended Tennessee Technological University for undergrad. Fun fact, Kayla is a two-time cancer survivor and a quarter of a Dentist! After earning her degree in Microbiology, she spent a year in Dental School at UT in Memphis before needing to come back to Nashville for medical leave.
It was at that time that Kayla and her now-husband bought their first property, and she found an unanticipated passion in Nashville’s real estate market. She is quick to tell friends that her ending up in this career path is proof that you always land where you’re supposed to land!
Kayla treats her clients as though they are her own family, with a comforting attitude, a sense of understanding, and a strong desire to help. To her, the best part of working in real estate is knowing that you are helping people make possibly the largest financial decision of their lives. “I love facilitating folks in saving money, making money, and occasionally dodging bullets. Owning real estate is so empowering, and being able to play a role in that for someone truly is special.” The real estate transaction is an intimate process and she considers it an honor to play such a large role in helping people find their place in the world.
When she isn’t working, Kayla divides her volunteer hours between Big Brothers Big Sisters of America, an organization called Dec My Room, and Nashville’s Rally Foundation. She loves to give back and is always keeping an eye out for a way to make the world a little happier. Kayla also loves finding Nashville’s hidden gems, walking the trails of local parks, and spending time at her Hermitage home with her loving husband and their adorable Wheaten Terrier named Norm!
“Sarah and Kayla helped us find the perfect home. Could not have asked for a better real estate agent. Out of the handful of homes we have been in and out of, this was the best agent I have ever dealt with. We felt like we were their only client. They paid close attention to details throughout the whole experience. If you are looking for a team to get the job done with finesse, look no further. You will most definitely be in the best hands in Nashville. No doubt about it.”
“I cannot express enough how much we love Kayla and the whole Moving Music City team! They really are a wonderful team of people who put our needs first and were so helpful through the whole process. Every question was swiftly answered. We could not have asked for a better/happier team to work with!”

“We recently worked with MMC to find a home, and had a great experience! Our move was a bit complicated coming from out of state with very hectic schedules, but Kayla toured houses for us virtually and helped us narrow the field to the absolute favorites before we arrived in-person. The entire team was great helping us through the process and connecting us with all the right locals to get settled in. Highly recommend!”
Josh & Krista
“You should definitely use Kayla and the rest of the team at Moving Music City if you are looking to buy or sell in the Nashville area. We bought AND sold with them. Both transactions went amazingly smooth! Kayla was available whenever we had questions. Her advice and guidance were invaluable as we navigated the Nashville real estate market. Everyone we encountered on the team was friendly, professional, and personable. They are seriously a joy to work with!”
Michael & Sarah Kneff
“This team of ladies sold my town home within 48 hours! They also helped me purchase my dream home in the middle of Music City. It was a flawless process and they really helped take all of the stress out of moving. They will meet with you and help to determine your goals and then they make everything as easy as possible. Thank you so much Kayla, Sara, and Casey! You guys rock!”
