Like a power couple, the husband-wife duo has a shared passion
for the same craft. She knows design, marketing and has a keen
eye for real estate investments. He's interested in engineering and
building. Together, they make up Austin Modern Properties, a Texas-based custom luxury homebuilder.
"We jumped in with both feet," Adam Mosier says. "I'm the
bricks and sticks side of things and Amy makes it all look pretty."
Founded in 2015, the company is still young and smaller-scale.
But the couple likes it that way. Focusing on quality and details,
Austin Modern Properties builds between eight and 10 custom
homes per year.
"Much more important than the number of homes we build
each year is the quality that goes into those homes," Amy Mosier
says. "Our top priority is to design and construct a home that reflects the utmost care and attention to detail that goes into each
and every project. We build each home as if we were building it
Austin Modern Properties specializes in custom homes, spec
homes and urban infill development projects in and around central
and south Austin's urban neighborhoods. The company has been
focused on building homes close to Austin's downtown that range
in price from $350,000 to $2 million.
"We like higher-end construction with higher-quality materials," Adam Mosier explains. "We want to be known as a higher-level builder."
