Old Days to New Ways: Featuring Kelly M.

Hello Homes is #blessed to have seriously amazing clients.  On top of just being great people, some of them are also super handy! In this series, we are showcasing a client that saw the potential in their space and took advantage of it.  Let’s begin…

Kelly M. knew that downtown was where she HAD to be.  Thus, our search began.  After looking at a few different buildings, she narrowed her search on the infamous Union Square.  Character, size, location, and price all aligned with her vision.  When we listed the unit that is now hers, she knew she had to act fast. After only a handful of days on the market, Kelly submitted an offer and a month later, she was the proud new owner.

AFTER PHOTOS AND INTERVIEW WITH KELLY M.

HH: What was the one thing that drew you to this condo?

K.M: There were way more than just one! This history of the building was what first drew me in. Then, once I saw the actual unit, it was the openness of the whole place- the high ceilings and the 15 foot windows blew me away. And the spiral staircase of course!

HH: What was one thing you couldn’t wait to change?

K.M: The countertops! And the carpeting in the loft upstairs.

HH: What piece of your remodel do your guests love the most?

K.M: Definitely the mural. I’m not sure if it’s considered a “remodel” but it’s certainly the piece in the unit with the most character.

HH: What projects were DIY and what did you hire a contractor for?

K.M: I ripped up the carpet in the loft and laid hardwood, painted a few walls, and tiled the kitchen backsplash myself. The only thing I hired out was the countertops and the mural.

HH: Where do you enjoy spending most of your time in your new remodel?

K.M: In the living room/kitchen area. It’s so open and my view of the Westside is the best.
