Talking time capsule houses with the Wall Street Journal

The Wall Street Journal contacted me a few weeks ago for a big story about time capsule houses and the people who look for them and love them. I also pointed reporter Leigh Kamping-Carder — who did a great job! — to some of our favorite retro-realtors including Alyssa Starelli and Ed Murchison, who both also were interviewed and quoted. And check out the spectacular basement in the house that Alyssa sold — that carpet!! Folks without a subscription so far have been able to read the story via the link on our Facebook page — or click here if you have an online subscription. There’s a fun video, too. Hooray for the Retro!

What’s your favorite quote from the story?

    Great article! I know I’m late to the party but I have to say that Robin Miller’s comment, “As soon as I walked in the door, it was pretty amazing,” describes exactly how I felt when I walked into my 1966 ranch – it just sucked me right in!

    Darn! Never got to see the article, Facebook wanted a registration.
    Alyssa, Ed and Pam – the experts!

    Congratulations! I am so happy to see your mission of appreciating and celebrating excellence of mid century home amplified in the WSJ!

    Pam… and thanks so much for allowing us to read that great article via your Facebook page…. sigh…. I’d take ANY one of those luscious homes!! My husband has the wonderful ability to fix ANYTHING, and I’d not change a thing in any of those perfect houses…. except the $$ perhaps! Sure wish we could find an affordable one of these gems, my lovely husband could fix any of the gnarly bits!! ????

    My favorite photo in the article is actually the one of Javier and Jake’s apartment. I love the bold drapes!! ????
