Local Flavor

7/29/2016

Are you new to Jackson or looking for some local flavor? Check out these 8 restaurants that are original to Jackson!

Tulum Fresh Mexican Grill: If you combine the lush flavors and tropical feelings of Cancun, Cabo San Lucas, and add a big dose of San Diego, you will find yourself arriving at Tulum Fresh Mexican Grill. Tulum’s menu is constantly evolving with its fresh and imaginative takes on traditional offerings. All of the salsas are homemade daily from SCRATCH!

  • Location: 71 Carriage House Drive Jackson, TN 38305

Rock N Dough Pizza & Brew Co.: The Rock’n Dough food philosophy is “fresh and local”, because fresh and local tastes better and is better for you and our community! They make all their dough and sauce daily, and shred their own cheese. They smoke their own meat and prep all their fresh veggies in-house. At some of their locations, they go one step further and grow our own basil and tomatoes! 

  • Location: 16 Jackson Walk Plaza Jackson, TN 38301

Dumplin’s Restaurant: Dumplin’s, a specialty bake shop, has been a Jackson favorite since 1990! People from all over West Tennessee have come to love their homemade rolls (one of Jada’s favorites), fresh salads, hot casseroles, and the best desserts to be found. From family dinners and business lunches to Sunday brunches, everyone will love Dumplin’s!

Old Town Spaghetti Store (Jada’s #1 Favorite): Home of the Country Italian Grill. Whether you are looking for the best Italian food in town, or just a fun place to hang out and have a good laugh, there is no place like the Old Town Spaghetti Store! This is also Jada’s favorite local restaurant, “They bring you bread as long as you sit there and put it in your mouth…I just love their bread!”

  • Location: 550 Carriage House Drive Jackson, TN 38305

Catfish Cabin: Catfish Cabin has provided the Jackson and West Tennessee area with good food for more than 30 years!

Dixie Castle: Located in the heart of downtown, Dixie Castle has been locally owned for over 20 years! They have daily plate lunches along with a lunch menu. At night, the menu includes steaks, chicken, pork chops, and shrimp. I would personally recommend the pork chop…it’s great!

We want to congratulate Jada for completing the Pricing Strategy Advisor (PSA) certification! This is a great accomplishment and just gives you another reason why YOU should chose Jada as your realtor!

When you are looking at a home, are you buying at the right price? Don't guess...work with a PSA. As a PSA, Jada can help you find your home at the right price.

Why Real Estate?

7/18/2016

Many ask the same question...How and why did I get into real estate?

All my life I have been interested in investing in real estate, whether that means buying houses and fixing them up to sell or investing in rental property. I have owned up to 15 rentals, and I currently own 10 rental properties. It is by far the best investment that I could have ever made, and it provides great cash flow!

In real estate, you are your own boss and can work as much or as little as you would like. Being a self motivator, selling real estate has worked great for me. Thanks to all of my loyal buyers and sellers for my success! I wouldn't be where I am today without your support!

Benefits of Home Ownership

7/11/2016

Home ownership has many advantages, both personal and financial, but buying a home is an important decision. Understanding the differences between renting and buying can help you decide if it is the right time to make the leap.

 

Benefits of Home Ownership:

  • Tax savings
    You may earn significant tax savings because you can deduct mortgage interest and property taxes from your federal income tax as well as many states' income tax if you itemize your deductions.
  • A stable monthly housing expense
    Your monthly housing loan or mortgage expense can remain the same for the life of your mortgage, depending on the type of loan you choose.
  • Equity
    You may build equity in your home over the life of your loan, which allows you to plan for future goals like your child's education or your retirement.
  • Personal satisfaction
    Your home can be a great source of pride and satisfaction - giving you peace of mind that you've built a solid foundation on which to build your future.

 

Think you might be ready? Have more questions? Please don't hesitate to contact me. I look forward to hearing from you.

 Sincerely,

Jada Slayton
