Buying a home isn’t one decision, but instead, it’s a series of smaller choices. Once you make the initial decision to buy a home, you’ll need to decide on your budget, size, and which neighborhood will fit the lifestyle you and your family want. Every Memphis neighborhood has a unique and often eclectic personality. The Judy Mac Team can help you find your perfect home in your perfect neighborhood. For instance, if you’re looking for a beautiful place for families that still has everything you need to get the most out of work and play, Collierville might be the right option for you.
Get to Know Collierville
Collierville enjoys the pastoral fields and soft rises of the eastern part of Shelby County. Many neighborhoods feature estate-size lots and are near enough to forests and creeks that allow residents to share their space with many pleasant forms of wildlife. However, the area is only minutes away from upscale shopping dining and other amenities.
If your family enjoys the outdoors, you’ll be happy to know that the gently sloping landscapes and wide green expanses make Collierville the perfect backdrop for an enjoyable 18 holes at one of it’s five popular golf courses. Residents can also enjoy relaxing days spent in one of 11 neighborhood parks or enjoy any sport at any of the city’s 30 athletic fields. Every family can find something to enjoy in Collierville.
Even though Collierville has a lot of rural appeals, it’s easy to enjoy Memphis and any other suburb by traveling on the I-385 Bill Morris Parkway. Additionally, the Canada-to-Mexico I-69 is in progress and will eventually connect with I-385. Highway 72 and the Poplar Avenue transit corridor meet just a few miles from the town’s center, meaning downtown Memphis with all its amenities are only a short drive away.
If all that wasn’t enough, Collierville is currently a leader in statewide growth, attracting over 45,000 residents, a big jump from 31,000 in 2000. It’s also home to major businesses, including the FedEx World Headquarters. Collierville was chosen as one of Relocate-America's Top 100 Places to Live in 2008, and in 2014, the historic town square was ranked by Parade Magazine as the "Best Main Street" in America.
