Mid-Century Modern Dreams are Made of These

By Marisa Swenson, August 7, 2018

Just sold – After many months of searching and many offers submitted my very sweet and patient buyers scored a dreamy mid century modern of their very own. They beat out multiple offers (one all cash even) by getting creative with what they had available to offer and it worked! Congrats Kevin and Kiersta, welcome to the MCM owners club. Let us know when we can put you on a tour!

 

Mid-Century Modern Homes

Over the past 10 years I have worked to build an extensive database of people interested in knowing more about these homes, buyers looking to purchase them and sellers curious about what their unique home might be worth. I also live in a custom built mid-century modern home and understand first hand the joys and pains that come with caring for these special places. If you are interested in purchasing or selling a modern home, Rummer homes, or mid–century homes contact me – I keep my fingers to the pulse of this market and would love to help!
