Ever since Modernist houses hit the mainstream market in the 1950’s, the real estate community has largely stayed away. Unaware of history, contemptuous of design style, and overreacting to certain flaws, realtors can do more to scare buyers away than to close the deal.
Two Modernist realtors keep it real about these livable works of art.
Crosby Doe is one of the leading Modernist realtors in America. Since 1983 he has sold houses by internationally prominent architects including Richard Neutra, Harwell Hamilton Harris, Rudolph Schindler, Frank Lloyd Wright, John Lautner, Charles Eames, Craig Ellwood, Pierre Koenig, and Frank Gehry.
Emilie Huin started in real estate only four years ago but has become one of the leading Modernist realtors in North Carolina. She sold (and preserved) an important and endangered Modernist house in Chapel Hill by the late Arthur Cogswell.
