About Us

Platinum South is a boutique real estate firm covering the entire business cycle from buying via managing to selling properties. Its center is in Nashville, Tennessee (USA) with contacts in Paris (France) and Berlin (Germany). This international presence allows us to serve our clients with a full range of services not only in both continents and across the Atlantic but also to serve them in English, French and German.

Our Story

Platinum South has several roots: its founder and owner Catherine Aubale Epstein was originally having a successful real estate activity in San Francisco since 1974. To this she later added a business of similar activities in Paris and Berlin with Paul Mensing . She then moved to Nashville, one of the fastest growing real estate markets.

Platinum South combines the great experience and specific expertise of several partners with different backgrounds. This makes it a unique team which knows the secrets of success of large corporations and real estate developers just as much as the needs and constraints of small property owners where each and every team member must be ready to do whatever is necessary to keep the clients’ best interests.

So here are the key and unique points Platinum South can offer you:
o Professional experience and expertise
o Multiple property ownership
o International presence and languages
o True management perspective
o Acting locally
