SOLD | 47 Ridgelawn Rd

Yeah! Another sweet listing sold this past week. The original Sears Kit Home retained all the original character and charm and was well located in West Asheville. Here is what the seller’s said about us: Troy and Kelly were fantastic partners in the sale of our house! We were out-of-town owners and we completely trusted their counsel. They navigated through the  entire process professionally and thoughtfully and were extremely responsive. They clearly have a thorough understanding of the local market and have all the solid contacts necessary to make things happen when needed. We would have not hesitation to recommend Troy and Kelly and us them again if the need arises. Cheers! Troy and Kelly

Modern Fans

Ceiling fans are always a topic of discussion when we tour homes with clients and one of the first things, along with light fixtures, to get changed out of homes to add a more modern aesthetic. Finding affordable options wasn’t always easy, but finding options with clean lines is easier today. One of our modern news and shopping feeds sent us this link at 2Modern. We thought they pulled together a nice assortment of options. So, stay cool as you stay cool in your home. Cheers! Kelly and Troy
