Thanks for stopping by.

Here is some info about 6th Ave Homes

 

 

6th Ave Homes

We are two guys — a detective for the city of Fort Worth and a musician in a Country Rock band — who love bringing old properties back to life. We are an unlikely pair, but we are business partners, neighbors and also best friends. In 2014, we started a real estate company, 6th Ave Homes, that specializes in buying, selling, and renovating old houses. Together, we have bought, sold, and restored over 40 historic properties in Fort Worth.

6th Ave Homes has grown since its inception and in the fall of 2016 we have expanded our company to include a team of real estate agents and contractors to help you buy, sell, and renovate your home or commercial property. In 2017 we will start work on The 411, our first commercial development, where we will transform an old 17,000 square foot warehouse into 5 retail stores (including our own furniture and design store), a restaurant, bar, and an event space.

Restoration is what drives us and our company. Every day, we believe that we have the opportunity to impact our community in a positive way. Watching things be brought back to life is what keeps us going. We try to incorporate the idea of restoration in everything we do, from our relationships with our clients to the houses we work on. We want to make everything better than when we found it.

Our mission is simple: Creating Homes. Building Community.
