I was born in Memphis. I have moved away twice and returned to live here. The bar-b-q is not the only thing brought me back and will keep me here the rest of my days. Forbes gave Memphis the number 3 spot on its America’s Most Miserable Cities list back in February. This week Forbes rated Memphis #1 among the Country’s Most Dangerous Cities.
I am not writing this post as a Convention and Visitors Bureau or Chamber of Commerce piece. The positive, fun, safe, educational, entertainment, and cultural aspects of Memphis life are easy to research.
Imagine being a real estate agent specializing in in-city properties. How would you respond the Forbes stories? How would you sell Memphis to someone relocating or considering moving here? I would love to see your responses. For me a driving tour with lunch at an authentic Memphis bar-b-q spot seems to be the perfect introduction.
