Happy Birthday Frank Lloyd Wright

In honor of one of our most celebrated architects we thought it would be worthwhile sharing, once again, one of our favorite posts on the man himself.  Cheers!

1953 Frank Lloyd Wright interview by Mike Wallace | I scoured the internet for something of interest to watch last night. It is not always very fruitful, but this time I found something “fantastic” — at least from my viewpoint. If you’ve never seen this before I’m happy to share this treasure with you today. His belief in individualism and his views on the lack of intellectualism and “mobocracy” hit home today. I won’t say more, but simply encourage you to spend 50 minutes to watch this interview with a true visionary who is, obviously, very comfortable in his own skin. Enjoy the segment here . Cheers!

Top Review for Modern Asheville Real Estate

More than anything we love it when our clients are pleased. We were especially honored to hear the following words. Thank you so much Kristin. We are so happy for you! Kelly and Troy

“Kelly and Troy are a seller’s dream team. The whole process of listing my home with Troy and Kelly could not have been better. They had beautiful, professional photographs done for the listing, listed my house at just the right price point, and offered great advice throughout the process. My  house was under contract at ‘asking price’ within 36 hours of hitting the MLS.

And they are also a buyer’s dream team, too. They found me a wonderful MCM house in the neighborhood I wanted to live in, at a price I could afford and negotiated everything beautifully. From listing day, to the subsequent sale of my house, to closing day on my new house took exactly 50 days. There were no hitches and I always had the feeling Kelly and Troy were completely on top of everything in each step of the process. They communicated well and clearly. I even left the country for a week (a pre-planned trip) in the midst of everything and felt absolutely relaxed doing that, knowing that both of my house deals were in the hands of this super competent team. Throughout the process, I always felt they had my back.

They are smart, extremely professional, enthusiastic, knowledgable, classy — and fun! I was proud to be represented by Modern Asheville and would use them again in a heartbeat.”

For the past couple of weeks as we drive through downtown and see the alterations to the former BB&T building — somehow this movie scene flashes through our minds. Anyone else? What are your thoughts? Cheers!
