Welcome to the 27th National Arts & Crafts Conference at the Grove Park Inn held February 21-23, 2014

The annual conference and antiques sale is extraordinary! Over 175 Vendors will be there including all the fabulous artisans creating contemporary works in the Arts & Crafts Style; Furniture, Pottery, Art, Jewelry, Textiles, Carpets, Stained-glass windows, Books, Silver from England, Lighting and Hardware made by hand, so much more. This is the place to be if you love all things Arts & Crafts as I do. Come visit my “Bungalow Brown” exhibit at the Conference.

For the second year I will be manning my real estate booth on the 10th floor across from the elevator. I will provide examples of the unique Arts & Crafts Styles which fill the 14 National Historic District neighborhoods throughout Asheville. I will have brochures filled with samples of the unique bungalows which are currently on the market so attendees can discover how affordable they may be compared to where they currently live. I will include classic Craftsman, Foursquare, Italianate, Spanish and Colonial Revival styles, etc. and several examples of new Craftsman bungalows being built with quality, character and charm. For more information, I hope people will give me a ring and set up an appointment to pop by our 1925 Dutch Colonial Bungalow office at 54 Merrimon Avenue. My Broker Associates and I will be setting up MLS saved searches for people who would like to receive emailed links to the newest listings as they come on the market. It is my understanding, that many attendees have been coming to the Conference for 8-12 years and are considering retiring to Asheville. As your local broker who specializes in the marketing and sale of these fabulous homes, I offer my combined experience in building new Craftsman Bungalows since 2000 and selling real estate since 1989. I am a 3rd generation real estate broker whose son just received his real estate license while finishing his Junior year in college. Frank Brown knows the real estate business and I have designed/built over 400 new homes, so I have really good eyes for the details when it comes to showing homes to my clients. I hold a BA in Art, hold a VA Builders License and Brokers Licenses in VA, TN & NC. Yes, I have been called a perfectionists when it comes to home construction details and site placement so you will be in good hands. I promptly reply to my email, text and answer my phone: 828-989-6556 try me.

Here is a wonderful example of the unique bungalows in the Historic Grove Park Neighborhood, a 1927 “Airplane” Bungalow I sold in 2013.
