The general neighborhood of Midtown is very progressive and neighbors advocate quality of life issues. Please feel free to contact me about your housing needs and with any questions you have about the Rhodes area, Midtown or Memphis in general.
The only real public transportation we have in Memphis is MATA. Rhodes College is on North Parkway which is on the MATA line. Depending where you want to go though you may be transfering quite a bit. Rhodes is in the section of Memphis known as midtown and most of the homes there are older. I live in midtown myself, a few blocks from Rhodes, and love it! I also have a couple of listings within walking distance of Rhodes. If you would like more information I would love to help you out. Give me a call any time...901-570-0900.
