Executive Title celebrates owner

Executive Title & Escrow, PLLC celebrated its owner — roughly eight months after taking over and re-naming his new company — with a Farragut West Knox Chamber of Commerce-sponsored ribbon cutting at the business’ office, 10269 Kingston Pike, Tuesday, April 9.

Ameesh A. Kherani, an attorney with offices in Knoxville and Jacksboro, purchased the title company in August 2023, renovating the facility and making upgrades.

“Executive Title & Escrow is an attorney-owned and operated, trusted, reliable, full-service real estate title insurance company, protecting the American dream of ownership for decades,” Kherani said. “Real estate property is the nation’s largest asset, and behind-the-scenes Executive Title & Escrow works to ensure the quick and secure transfer of land, fostering lender and consumer confidence in their real estate investments.

“The objective of Executive Title & Escrow remains the same as it has always been: helping the parties in the real estate transaction determine their rights and interests and assure that land transfer is expeditious and secure,” he added.

Instruments, sheet music, lessons as Lane Music moves near Town

Lane Music has opened near Farragut, providing musical instruments, sheet music, lessons and more at 10910 Kingston Pike, Suite 107.

“We do a little bit of everything,” said Logan Paul, store manager. “We’re the only full-line music store in the Knoxville area.”

It sells acoustic pianos, high-end acoustic and electric guitars and is an exclusive dealer for a few different brands.

The company touts itself as the largest Kawai piano dealer in the state and provides band instrument rentals for schools and individuals.

“We do lessons as well,” Paul said. “We have a few different teachers.

“We have two that (teach) piano specifically, two different styles — traditional and modern,” he added. “The other two teachers both mainly do guitar and bass. One of our guitar/bass teachers (a retired U.S. Army veteran) also teaches all the folk instruments — mandolin, dulcimer — and he does trumpet as well.”

Paul explained the teachers are private, so they rent the space from Lane Music.
