The Jordan Home
If you were to ask Demetria and TJ Jordan what led them to their charming Southern traditional home in Harrison, they would tell you it was fate. After deciding their family of three had outgrown their home, the duo began looking for a place where their family would have plenty of room and they could entertain guests.

“I have a friend who is a realtor, and after I mentioned that we were interested in moving, she instantly came over. Within three or four days, we had purged a lot of our belongings, and our house was on the market,” says Demetria.
And it didn’t take the couple long to find exactly what they were looking for in a new home, either. A series of happily orchestrated events led them to a new development not far from their previous home, where they fell in love with a charming home modeled after one the builder had seen in South Carolina while on vacation.
“After we found the home we wanted and put ours on the market, I stood in the driveway and prayed. I said, ‘God, we want our house gone in seven days,’” explains TJ. “This house was contingent on us selling ours, and we didn’t want to lose it. And what do you know – on the seventh day I’m lying in bed when I get a text from our realtor telling us we had an offer.”
