In other words, specialty homes that are for sale, but are kept privately in our back pocket per the owner. We will be getting a few more over the winter months prior to spring. If you have interest in being on a list of potential buyers please email us at hello@modernasheville.com. We can send you our Buyer Questionnaire and forward you any information that would be appropriate as we get it. Cheers! Kelly and Troy
