Happy Birthday Frank Lloyd Wright

In honor of one of our most celebrated architects we thought it would be worthwhile sharing, once again, one of our favorite posts on the man himself.  Cheers!

1953 Frank Lloyd Wright interview by Mike Wallace | I scoured the internet for something of interest to watch last night. It is not always very fruitful, but this time I found something “fantastic” — at least from my viewpoint. If you’ve never seen this before I’m happy to share this treasure with you today. His belief in individualism and his views on the lack of intellectualism and “mobocracy” hit home today. I won’t say more, but simply encourage you to spend 50 minutes to watch this interview with a true visionary who is, obviously, very comfortable in his own skin. Enjoy the segment here . Cheers!

Top Review for Modern Asheville Real Estate

More than anything we love it when our clients are pleased. We were especially honored to hear the following words. Thank you so much Kristin. We are so happy for you! Kelly and Troy

“Kelly and Troy are a seller’s dream team. The whole process of listing my home with Troy and Kelly could not have been better. They had beautiful, professional photographs done for the listing, listed my house at just the right price point, and offered great advice throughout the process. My  house was under contract at ‘asking price’ within 36 hours of hitting the MLS.

And they are also a buyer’s dream team, too. They found me a wonderful MCM house in the neighborhood I wanted to live in, at a price I could afford and negotiated everything beautifully. From listing day, to the subsequent sale of my house, to closing day on my new house took exactly 50 days. There were no hitches and I always had the feeling Kelly and Troy were completely on top of everything in each step of the process. They communicated well and clearly. I even left the country for a week (a pre-planned trip) in the midst of everything and felt absolutely relaxed doing that, knowing that both of my house deals were in the hands of this super competent team. Throughout the process, I always felt they had my back.

They are smart, extremely professional, enthusiastic, knowledgable, classy — and fun! I was proud to be represented by Modern Asheville and would use them again in a heartbeat.”

Just For Fun?

For the past couple of weeks as we drive through downtown and see the alterations to the former BB&T building — somehow this movie scene flashes through our minds. Anyone else? What are your thoughts? Cheers!

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!

Before and After | Mid-Century

For all the years we’ve been in the business and watching cool properties we get to see a lot of diamonds in the rough. This one especially tugged at our hearts when we saw the 1965 vintage, mid-century home in North Asheville in its original and untouched condition. The home sits in the Kimberley Woods neighborhood — one of the many well located, mid-century and ranch home neighborhoods we have here in Asheville. Driving through last week we recently saw the updates and had to share. What do YOU think?
