Life at The Governors Club

A Salute to Margaret Tullis
This month the POA Board would like to spotlight Margaret Tullis, our Ghertner & Company On-Site Property Manager.
Margaret has been married to Reggie Tullis for 52 years. They have three sons and six grandchildren.  Reggie is a Portfolio Manager with Ghertner & Company. Reggie and Margaret live in Brentwood. Their son, Chuck, his wife, Keelie, and their 13-yr old twins, Madden and Macie, live in Hanover, PA, where Chuck is SVP of UTZ Snack Foods Co.  Greg, his wife, Lauren, and their children, Abbie, Parker, and Rylee, live in Conroe, Texas, where Greg has served in law enforcement for 11 years. Margaret and Reggie's oldest son, Butch, passed away in May 2000. Butch's son, Austin, lives in Franklin and is a freshman at Austin Peay in Clarksville. Margaret also has a miniature pinscher who she loves dearly.

Margaret has served in the hospitality and retail industries for 25 years. While in the hotel industry, Margaret worked with Drury Industries in Cape Girardeau, MO and Ramada Inn in Nashville.  Margaret was also a part owner/manager of small motel in Hendersonville.  During this time, Reggie changed careers, and they relocated to Birmingham, Houston, and back to Nashville.  Upon their return to Nashville, Margaret worked as a manager of the Bombay Co. Cool Springs store, where she received accolades for "Highest Sales in Southeast Region" for multiple years.

At the end of 2006 Margaret decided to retire.  Margaret quickly discovered that retirement was not for her and decided to seek part-time work.  Margaret says, "Be careful what you pray for, as it may come quickly." Reggie came home from work soon after and informed her that Ghertner & Company was looking to fill a part time job for an on-site manager of the Governors Club.  Margaret was quickly interviewed by Ghertner & Company and the POA board at the time and started as the on-site manager in March 2007.

Margaret's main objective is to provide daily on-site man­ management assistance and to support homeowners with any questions or needs that they may have.  She ensures that the property is being taken care of appropriately by all vendors who support the neighborhood- security, landscaping, ARB professionals, pool maintenance, mansion maintenance and repairs, fitness center maintenance, building sites, relations
 with Kemper, etc. Margaret can be seen daily driving the neighborhood to ensure everything is in order and ensure there are no issues in the neighborhood.  She is an unbelievable asset to this neighborhood. The POA board greatly appreciates all that she does. She is very organized and communicates and handles issues very efficiently.

In her leisure time Margaret enjoys travelling to Pennsylvania and Texas to visit her grandchildren and taking cruises. Her favorite place to visit is Hawaii. Reggie begged Margaret for years to travel to Hawaii, and on their 40th anniversary, their children surprised them with a trip to Hawaii. Since then they have traveled to Hawaii three times. Margaret also enjoys reading, working in the yard and, of course, shopping. She enjoys watching her favorite football team in the fall - the Tennessee Vols. Margaret and Reggie attend Brentwood Baptist Church. "Margaret is thankful to God, Reggie, and the residents of TGC for allowing her the opportunity to be a part of this wonderful community, which she appreciates regardless of the situation or issue." 

Margaret -We sincerely appreciate all that you do for this community. You are a joy to work with and a fantastic asset to this neighborhood.
