Marketing and selling modern architecturally significant homes is a highly specialized area of real estate. My main objective is to help those who see the value in architecture. This website gets thousands of hits a month from people seeking unique modern and mid-century modern homes. I work primarily in the five counties based around Philadelphia, but I have set up a network of other modern specialists throughout the country. Please also feel free to contact Craig if your are outside the Philadelphia region so that I can connect you with the modern specialist in your area.
Currently there is a number of significant mid-century and modern properties on the market, including some by well known architects who designed homes in the area. Two of Louis Kahn's award winning homes are available. There is a fantastic Montgomery and Bishop home close to center city on 3 acres.
