SOLD | West Asheville Contemporary

Yeah! Last week we closed on this contemporary West Asheville property with one of our sweet buyer clients. Her patience paid off and we couldn’t be more happy for her and her new home. Cheers to you Brooke! Kelly and Troy

And here are some sweet words from her — I first met Kelly Erin-Spinney and Troy Winterrowd of Modern Asheville Real Estate three years ago. I found them to be very engaging and knowledgable about the Asheville real estate market. I knew I would be looking to buy larger home in three to five years and quickly realized they were the agents I wanted to work with when the time came. I was not disappointed. I am a very organized and detail-oriented person ~ Kelly and Troy are also. I felt comfortable every step of the way during my home purchasing experience. I never felt pressured or neglected. Once I found a listing that I was interested in they handled the negotiation smoothly and efficiently. They were in daily contact with me. This will be my seventh home and I have never had such professional and caring agents. Now we are in the process of selling my current location in Asheville. It has been a pleasure working with the Modern Asheville team and I highly recommend them!”
