Hello! My name is Tonya Gendreau and I am a Realtor with Crye-Leike Realtors. I would like to take a few minutes to answer your questions. Clarksville is a great place to live. I have been here 10 years and I love it. I am married with 2 children and I am glad I am raising my children here.

Clarksville has a population of 111,800 according to CNN.money.com. Our median house price is $125,647. We have a low cost of living here.

We are experiencing tremendous growth with new schools, new hospital, and new neighborhoods. Our current hospital is Gateway Hospital, however, Clarksville has just built a replacement hospital. It should be done this year. They are now completing the inside. I believe it will be a great new asset to Clarksville.

Our housing is extremely affordable and holds it appreciation rates very well. Clarksville is listed in Kiplinger's Magazine as projecting a 6.4% gain through 2009. It is number 1 in the country according to their report.

Tiny Town Road is a great place to live. It bridges the Ft. Campbell side of town to the St. B side of town. 5 to 10 minutes either way. This area is growing extremely fast especially out toward exit 1. Tiny Town has a new theater called the Great Escape and we are selling tons of land for more businesses and retail to build and grow with us. Plus we have lots of new schools for our children to attend. As far as crime is concerned, I haven't heard any complaints from clients in that area. Police patrol these areas constantly to prevent crime from occurring. If this is something that may concern you, I would advise you to find a neighborhood that you like and then contact the police department for crime statistics.

We are growing so fast and many from the west are coming back to Clarksville to retire. Our infrastructure is constantly building and growing to sustain new citizens every year.

I am happy that you are considering Clarksville as your residence for you and your family. If there is anything that I can assist you with, please feel free to contact me at tonya.gendreau@crye-leike.com.

Just a quick note... The TAR's weekly newsletter reported today:

"Clarksville has been singled out as the most promising real
estate appreciation market in the country by Fiserv, a global company
that provides information management systems and services to the
financial industry.

The company projects real estate prices will rise 6.4 percent
through 2009 in the Montgomery County city of about 125,000.

The statistic is in stark contrast to the overall national real
estate market."

Hi all.....we are looking to relocate to TN and this area sounds interesting. Close to Ft Campbell?? We were looking to be near a base, if possible and considered Redstone (south/middle TN) or Ft Campbell areas. Is it hilly or flat? We are in FL and sick of flat. My home state is WV and love the terrain, it's just not centralized to all our family. Looking for land to build on.

Clarksville/Montgomery County varies from slightly rolling hills to fairly "rough" terrain with the most common being somewhere in between. The flatter terrain is in the north part of the county with the south being very hilly in places.

Most of the Clarksville area is as flat as a board, absolutely nothing like what you had in WV. Down around Nashville it gets decently hilly, but theyre not the Smokies or anything either. If you liked WV's terrain, settle in eastern TN.

Well, I would agree with Steve-o that it's nothing like WV in terms of being mountainous, but I'd completely disagree with it being "flat as a board". You can go to a Google map of the area and turn on "terrain" and judge for yourself. As I mentioned earlier, I would describe it as gently to moderately rolling hills. And by the way, I grew up there and still own 50 acres on the east side of the county . . . I've sure walked enough of "them thar hills". Up near the Kentucky border and around Ft. Campbell it is fairly flat.

Well ok, the more I think about it, the more you sound correct. The area does have rolling hills scattered throughout town. I remember some decent hills near downtown, some south of town, even some neighborhoods near Kickers that had some decently steep hills. Then there is the area near the old railroad bridge and near the cave which were decently hilly too. Sorry, I forget the street names, its been awhile since I lived there.

I lived further east, near Tiny Town Rd, and spent most of my time around that area, which is very flat.
