6th Ave Homes originally focused on old home renovations when it was founded in 2014. It has since become one-stop shop for real estate when it began offering buying, selling and renovation services last year.

“Gretchen and Christine are both incredible assets to our team, offering their impeccable design expertise to our client base,” Williams said in the announcement. “Their creative styles, attention to detail and passion for helping people create a place to call home are key qualities that we value.”
