6th Ave Homes

We are two guys — a detective for the city of Fort Worth and a musician in a Country Rock band (Green River Ordinance) — 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 personally bought, sold, and restored over 100+ historic properties in Fort Worth.

6th Ave Homes has grown since its inception and in the fall of 2016 we expanded our company to include a team of real estate, guides, agents, designers, property managers, commercial agents, and renovation experts to help YOU buy, sell, and renovate YOUR home or commercial property. Since then we have helped hundreds of Fort Worthians find a create a space that feels like them. In 2017 we started work on The 411, our first commercial development, where we transformed an old 17,000 square foot warehouse into 4 retail stores, a restaurant, bar, and an event space. In 2019 we were chosen as the “Small Business Of The Year” by the Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce.

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. Real Estate with Soul.

Fairmount Historic District

The oldest neighborhood in Fort Worth. Houses are all from the 1920's. Big front porches. Funkiest neighborhood in Fort Worth (mini austin). Lots of artists, community gardens, home brewers, pubs, restaurants, big biking community, lots of community events and hanging out b/c of front porches.

House Shows

6th Ave Homes does real estate differently. From our fun designs and restorations to the unique way we market, we are shaking up the industry.

One of our favorite ways we do this is with our 6th Ave “House Shows”, our version of an open house. We host house concerts in our homes, inviting our clients, neighbors, and community to a fun night of music and “home”.

The Office

We renovated an abandoned & condemned 1920 Victorian House for our office space.
