Welcome Home Package

Going Live in...

3... 2... 1...

Countess Estates has the Welcome Home Concierge Service going live August 5, 2016!


Do you know someone moving into Middle Tennessee? Well, let us know so that we can welcome them to the neighborhood.

What does everyone need when they move in? Connections and Referrals!
The best way to find out is through people who have worked with the companies. Countess Estates will only refer companies who have shown consistent work performance. 

What's the difference between Countess Estates and all of those websites and apps? Well, even though they say that they have "verified" the company, all I have seen them do is send an email to the person who does the recommendation. I have never received a telephone call from any one of them much less have they visited the location to see the work first hand! Some of these websites will make the contractor pay a monthly fee AND A referral fee even if there is no actual contract signed. Some companies require the contractor to charge a certain amount and/or give a quote over the internet. While that may sound great, the fact of the matter is that quotes need to be personalized.
So, many of the great companies remove themselves. 

Someone from Countess Estates has personally seen and visited locations where each and every one of the referred contractors has worked and seen their results. These are real verification of services!

Call today to refer someone or to schedule your own meeting!

Chi-Rho On The Website

 Changing the Herm to the Chi-Rho

http://www.todayifoundout.com/index.php/2011/12/the-x-in-xmas-doesnt-take-the-christ-out-of-christmas/

IN Church on Sunday, we were given Deuteronomy 6: 10-11 to meditate over. This I have done over the last few days and will continue to do. However, I went back to the beginning of the chapter to learn the context.

Basically, we are told to observe and practice the laws. (I encourage you to read the entire for yourself.) We are to love our ONE God, "With all our heart, and with all our soul, and with all our might." We need to teach our children and make sure that it is decorative and visibly seen by everyone. And, then on 6 : 9 the Bible goes on to say that we should "Write them upon the posts of our house, and on our gates."

Interestingly, the Herm was the symbol of the Greek god Hermes, and was the marking post of land borders. Hermes was the god that symbolized the multiplication (or not) of land and cattle (the wealth of the land).

Now, as a Christian, I can't very well continue to have these on the website as people may think that I represent a pagan god. So, I need to "mark my posts" with my love for Christ. As a historian, I chose a historic symbol, the "Chi-Rho." This is the symbol that Constantine saw in the sky, and which made the state religion of Rome change to Christianity.

I believe this particular photo is from a church, but I am not sure as the location where I got it from did not state the precise location, only that it was "public domain" issued. I like it specifically because it shows the symbol over the Cross and there are two men humbled beneath it. These are obviously soldiers and so are probably Crusaders. I will add that I do not in any way promote violence against anyone, nor do I promote any aggression toward someone of a different faith. This is simply a beautiful symbol of Christ and I think that it goes well with the theme of buildings (The roof and the columns). Of course, I reserve the right to change any picture in the future.

So, the final point is that I want to make sure to write my love of Christ upon my posts - my house, my gate, and my business.
