Chesapeake Home Renovation

Monica Curry wasn’t even looking to buy a house when she did. 

Monica is a Real Estate Agent and Technology Specialist for World Class Realty who met Michelle and Stuart in 2020 when she was selling an investment property she owned. Stuart suggested to Monica how to make it work…a true win-win. “We will buy it, renovate it, and then you list it,” Stuart explained. That started this awesome relationship. 

In October 2021, Michelle and Stuart showed Monica a house which was a mile from her son’s home. With no intent to move at this time, Monica made an offer on the house built in 1976 which was only a mile from her son’s home. 

The house needed a lot of renovation. The kitchen and floors were just one aspect which needed change. The home did not work for this contemporary, highly successful and driven real estate agent! Michelle has been designing homes and renovation for twenty years, listening intently to her clients. Monica pictured an industrial style, that no fuss, no nonsense inspired from the look and feel of renovated warehouses, factories, and other industrial structures. Michelle met with her vendors to prepare for Monica’s visits with her to their showrooms. Though selections were more limited than usual during the height of the 2020 pandemic, Monica got what she wanted: industrial black, dark grey, iron pipes you see in her kitchen shows you the finished renovation. Touches of blue, for the island and fireplace compliments Monica’s vision and all of it brings the 70s to 21st century living! Amazingly, the entire renovation was complete in 9 weeks. 

“Michelle’s professionalism as a designer is the best,” said Monica. “Not only does she listen but she comes up with recommendations which really make a difference. I love the creativity that we were able to implement working together. Meanwhile, Stuart was always on top of everything that needed to be done in my home.”
