Stellar Review for the Modern Asheville Team

Sweet! We love it when our clients and community honor us with their kind words. This one meant a lot to us as we truly do work to get to know our clients individually and match their style and taste no matter what it is. Cheers!

“Sometimes things don’t go according to plan in life. My husband and I were in the process of planning our build for our new modern home. We purchased the lot, we met with builders, architect and designers. We then came to the realization that perhaps this was just not for us. We had an endurance and financial limit. We worked with Modern Asheville Real Estate before in the purchase and selling of our previous home. The experience . was great and both Kelly and Troy made it a very easy process. So, we call on them to help find us a home that satisfied our tastes and lifestyle. We kept the faith that one day we would get “The Call”. The both understood who we were and with their grasp and knowledge of this market, we knew they would come through. THEY DID! We had the opportunity to view our home before ever hitting the MLS. It is so important to work with brokers that not only understand who you are, but also have the inside track to this hot market. Their years of experience, solid reputation with our Asheville community came through for us. Sometimes the disappointment of the best laid plans can lead to something far better. Thank you Modern Asheville!”

Modern Atlanta 2 Modern Asheville

Modern Asheville hosts some of our best homes this year in our 4th annual tour in our mountain city. The tour, sponsored by the Atlanta Design Festival organization and Modern Asheville Real Estate, will feature six very unique homes.

Many people associate Asheville with the 19th-century Biltmore Estate. Today, living here is not about turrets, gargoyles or excess of any kind. Our city in the mountains is a playful escape where nature, culture and creativity prevail. The local terrain and climate make outdoor living appealing nine months out of the year.

Asheville residents are passionate about designed spaces, too. Modern Asheville Real Estate’s design partners balance cool, clean lines with the warmth of Mother Earth through site-specific design, view angles, natural light and materials, and sustainability. They are pioneers of innovative building and stewards fo the environment.

Please join us, along with our community architects, builders and homeowners for our satellite home tour on May 26th to find out what makes a modern lifestyle herd in Asheville so unique, so special and so very possible. Find information and tickets here. 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.

Check it out. Cheers!
