Women in Design

It is exciting for us to see more women take center stage in all aspects of life. Here is a great overview of some of the groundbreaking women in Architecture from our Architizer news feed. Please enjoy and have a great Thursday!

2 Homes Sold | 2 Happy Buyers

Our team recently closed on two homes for two different Asheville home buyers. Amanda kindly assisted the above buyers into a bright and cheerful new built home within the competitive West Asheville market. And Kelly helped wrangle the below Lakeview Park modern remodel into the hands of our buyers just before hitting the market. Yeah! You have to be diligent in today’s Asheville Real Estate market. Way to go team!

We are so happy for all our people as they become happy and thriving members of their new communities. Cheers to you all!

The spacious and versatile lower level is finished just enough to make it your very own. This one will be ready for you by early March.

Happy Anniversary to Modern Asheville Real Estate

kw-anniversaryKelly and I have many anniversaries around our business and like to have options for positive celebration {Cocktails} thru the year. However, today marks the start of our 5th year of being with Keller Williams Professionals. {Yeah!} And just this past week we got to celebrate with many of our peers being in the Top 100 of local agents. We are super proud!

Once again, we are grateful for each other, our clients and our community. Cheers! Kelly and Troy

Community Bill of Rights Kick-Off Party

Today, many people feel powerless. As you very well know that is just not true. You always have the power to make choices and do something about any given situation. Given the state, national and world political stage we are reminded to take steps in our own individual lives, as well as, in our surrounding community. That is where we can begin to affect change. With that in mind we want to introduce you to the Community Bill of Rights and the Asheville Community Roots Organization by inviting you to the Bill of Rights  kick-off party.

The Community Bill of Rights is a City ordinance that will: Enable citizens to prohibit the activities of corporations that pollute our water, air and soil. Allow us to make ongoing decisions about where we live, without interference from the State and aaccelerate the equitable transition to 100% renewable energy.

Make a difference in your life right here. If over 200 other communities in the US have done it, including the state of New Hampshire, we can, too! We hope to see you out there. Cheers!

Paint Colors for Staging

As real estate agents with a visual sense we are always being asked about what to do in preparing a home for sale. While we do love light and neutral paint choices we are, also, big fans of grays and well curated pops of color for accenting key walls. The below recent article on houzz seems to capture a clean aesthetic while giving it some personality. Check it out. Cheers!
