Cool Customers

When the market gets tough, the tough get fixin' - and that's just what clients Liz and Mark did when they purchased this darling SE Mid-Century ranch. The previous tenant of 28 years was a smoker, and much of the carpet and walls were badly nicotine-stained and in desperate need of some TLC!

With some hard work and a little elbow grease, an encouraging Agent, some flooring updates, and a splash of paint, these two determined buyers managed to turn a tired old house into a simply swoonworthy retro home in just two weeks. Urban Nest Realtors have an eye for potential, and love helping clients work to transform a vision into reality...and it might not be as impossible as you first think!
