Eden House Nashville | The Oertel Group

We are so excited to announce this project with our Chicagoland followers and those following us from all over the country! You may or may not know, but Nashville has been on the rise over the last several years. People are moving to Nashville in droves, because, what’s not to love about Nashville?!

Meet Jonathan Heard, a Nashville native, specializing in land development and new construction. He and his business partner Lacey Newman have made it their mission to help improve their hometown through working with strategic, thoughtful developers. Currently, Lacey is the leading luxury listing agent in the Green Hills area. She has curated an effective sales strategy for hundreds of clients including industry leaders, celebrities, and professional athletes! Together, Jonathan and Lacey make a powerhouse team that has been working in Nashville real estate for over 15 years!

So where does the Chicago-based Oertel Group come into the picture with Nashville-based Jonathan Heard & Lacey Newman? 

The Oertel Group is Compass' official Chicagoland/Nashville Ambassadors of Eden House! That means that we work closely with the sales team and have all of the behind-the-scenes information on Green Hills' first high-rise condo development. But, we do it all while representing you as the buyer. As luxury experts in the Green Hills area, we are uniquely qualified to educate you not only on this project but all real estate in and around the Green Hills area! With the Heard/Newman team being a top producing team for Compass in Nashville, we thought this important connection between our two teams within the industry, would make a great blog post to share with our collective readers!

Read all the way through to find out more information about what makes Nashville such a real estate hot spot, its booming job market, and all of the amazing luxuries and conveniences that Eden House has to offer!

What makes Nashville such an amazing place to live? What do you attribute to the sudden influx of new residents moving to Nashville?


Soul-moving live music plucks on your heartstrings every time you walk past a restaurant or bar! Great weather and a reliable four-season climate ensure beautiful outdoor enjoyment year-round. A vivid and historic art and cultural scene are woven into the brick side streets while colorful murals adorn Nashville buildings. A booming economy with strong job growth ensures long-term success, security, and peace of mind

Nashville lives along the peaceful shores of the Cumberland River. The Great Smoky Mountains offer weekend revelry in the coveted natural beauty of the American Southeast. And in Nashville’s backyard, the city is home to 56 golf courses, over 200 public parks, 80 miles of paved trails, and more than 30,000 acres of inland lakes!

Turning indoors, Nashville excites and entertains through live music opportunities while award-winning museums, galleries, performing arts centers, and auditoriums make Nashville an international melting pot of culture and creativity. For a night out on the town, the ‘Entertainment Center of the South’ never ceases to amaze with world-class dining, luxury shopping, and major sporting events.

With low taxes and a blossoming development market, Nashville is attractive to both families and businesses, with over 81 people moving to the city each day and entire companies relocating almost overnight.

ULI's annual "Emerging Trends in Real Estate Report" describes Nashville as a supernova and “the explosion of a star that creates unusual brilliance, but more generally the term refers to things that explode into prominence or popularity. So it is with the five metro areas in this new category.”

Wow, that all sounds so amazing! Let's get to Eden House! What makes it such a special luxury development for the area? And, for our readers, can you explain a bit about Green Hills, Nashville, where Eden House is located?


Eden House is a new era of luxury living in Nashville’s most coveted neighborhood, Green Hills! Eden House offers an incomparable lifestyle of sophistication with well-appointed amenities and ninety-two residences that span over sixteen stories!

An offering like Eden House has been long-awaited in the Green Hills neighborhood. Until now, the desirable high-rise lifestyle has only been available to downtown residents. With the exception of the uber-successful, luxury lease opportunity adjacent to Eden House, Vertis. We have already seen a large demand from existing Vertis tenants, who would rather own than lease, including a penthouse prospect currently under negotiations. Residents in Green Hills desire a lifestyle of ease and accessibility, which is why the unique positioning of Eden House is in high demand.

Appropriately titled, stepping into Green Hills and Forest Hills feels like escaping into an arbor fairytale! Though the neighborhood is just blocks away from Nashville’s most prized shopping districts, high-end retailers, famous restaurants, and excellent schools, the mature forests of the Green Hills/Forest Hills region have been preserved and well-tended. Offering an idyllic setting of shaded, wooded, private living right in the heart of Music City.

An affluent but quaint neighborhood, 15 minutes from the core business district of Nashville. Green Hills is known for its bustling new development, historic homes, dining, and shopping!

Jonathan loves being close to all of the development projects put together by our team. But he also enjoys the golf course where the work really takes place!  He also loves finishing his day with his developer friends at the Corner Pub before a short 8-minute drive back to his house in neighboring Forest Hills.
