I met Marco and Christina in March 2019, which feels like forever ago. They were referred to M&Co. by a good friend of theirs, and we quickly set up at meeting at our WeWork office. Marco and Christina owned a condo in the Gold Coast, and as first-time sellers, they were eager to learn more about the listing process, as well as discuss their next purchase.
I remember the first time I visited their home in the Gold Coast. I felt as if I had just walked into the pages of an interior design magazine. Every piece of furniture and decor fit perfectly together in their vintage condo. Christina has a natural eye for design — as evidenced by their chic kitchen and Paris-themed bathroom. We listed the home and quickly went under contract with a buyer (and even got a back-up offer!).
It was officially time for Marco and Christina to find their new home.
For this residence, Marco and Christina were searching for something special. They adore vintage, of course — the more character and original charm, the better. We soon found a penthouse in Lincoln Park that checked all of their boxes. They wasted no time — they toured the home and presented their offer. In the end, they won the bidding war!
Since closing day, this beautiful space has been brought to life by Marco and Christina. They updated the kitchen and bathroom, and they even added small touches like accent wallpaper in the built-in living room bookshelves. Their style is totally timeless — I’ll have to let these photos do the talking.
Since living here, they’ve welcomed their baby boy, making their home complete. I’m so thankful for these kind and talented clients-turned-friends!
