English term or phrase: homey ring
This phrase was drawn from "I think that has a great homey ring to it", and the paragraph it was involved in is as follow:
"I won't pretend that I'm any great expert on closings, since I've only been to a few. But I will explain the basic principles that govern them. Closings take place at the title insurer's office, and are generally handled by a closing officer. Closing officers are referred to as closers. I think that has a great homey ring to it. "

Please tell me soon, thank you everyone in advance!

agree  chica nueva: ring = the characteristic sound or impression; homey = having qualities usually associated with home; comfortable, familiar, etc (Collins Concise English Dictionary) -> homey = 舒适;亲切? Haha, this is US idiom (not my thing). see 'down-home', 'folksy'?
