Sunday Morning Modern

largeMOD MEN | Here is a timely story as we at Modern Asheville Real Estate work to enter a couple of mid-century homes for Griffin Preservation awards. It would be a first for this era of homes locally. As inspiration enjoy this story about the restoration of a mid-century architectural masterpiece. In 1962, Skidmore, Owings & Merrill architect Arthur Witthoefft won the AIA’s highest honor for a home he built in the lush woods of Westchester County. Having fended off a developer’s wrecking ball, Todd Goddard and Andrew Mandolene went above and beyond to make this manse mint again. Check out the article HERE. Happy Sunday!

Congrats to the Atomic Duo

We wanted to congratulate Megan and Todd of Atomic Furnishings and Design on their new home. As their energetic, mid-century Aunt and Uncle, Kelly and I couldn’t be more pleased for them. Below are some words from Megan. Cheers to you both!atomic-comp

“In case people have been wondering why we have been so busy lately and hard to track down it’s because we’ve been in the process of purchasing our first home. We decided to work with Kelly Erin-Spinney at Modern Asheville, because who better to know our taste and aesthetic than a mid-century and modern real estate company (not to mention she is a very good friend of ours). We were so impressed with her professionalism and knowledge of the home buying process. She would literally drop everything when we would ask to view a home. We are just so thankful to have had them involved in our first time home buying process and highly recommend them to anyone in the Asheville area! We just closed on our home this morning and we are ecstatic! It took a lot of blood, sweat and tears to get to this point and we are so glad we pushed through. Our modern home is located in Burnsville NC just down the street from our good friends Leigh and Kristian. More photos and lots of blogging coming soon.” Megan

Kudos for the Dynamic Duo

d8085586-9665-480c-9ca5-ee8daaf4d0daWe received some sweet testimonials from clients this month that we just had to share. Cheers to our great clients and friends!

SELLER Jeff who left our community for, where else, Palm Springs has been a friend and long-term client with us. Thanks for singing our praises. We miss you! “I have worked with Kelly and Troy three times while in Asheville. Every single experience was top-notch. They KNOW this market — mid-century, modern, cutting edge — all of it. They love what they are doing, and you can feel it. They are strategic and never once wasted my time. Everything they showed me was on the money. Kelly had the Mbrook Compvision to see past obstacles and offer solutions if needed, and it was never in an effort to sell me on something. I always felt that Kelly and Troy were on my side, had my best interest at heart, and that I was THE most important client they had. They have class and smarts and made selling AND buying easier. I’ve been on both sides of that table, and let’s face it, those can be stressful times. But I never felt stressed or pressured. They take care of all the angles. I will be forever grateful for their expertise and sincerity. You will not find anyone who works harder for you, or makes it as fun. Look no further!” And did we tell you the home sold for above asking price at a record level for the neighborhood?

BUYERS Andrea and Lucy just moved here from San Francisco. As we are always saying well located ranch homes are a great resource for “Making Your Modern” here in the mountains. We found them one walkable to town with mountain views. They are thrilled and preparing for the renovations with the architect and builder team all lined up. As always we can’t wait to see the results. “Kelly and Troy had an immediate intuitive sense for what we were looking for and helped us identify those types of houses without distraction. They work so seamlessly as a team–Troy’s ability to Sunset Compcreatively visualize the possibility for a house and its surrounds; Kelly’s extraordinary efficiency and list of contacts. We found a home quickly and were able to see its possibilities. We were also able to close quickly. We are comfortable having relied on their knowledge, and they were awesome to work with. We have now chosen to work with them on a second project.”
