About

Not interested in Colonials? Neither am I.

If you are looking to buy or sell a mid-century modern home in Maryland, Virginia or DC, you have come to the right place.

I am a licensed Realtor with Long & Foster in Maryland, D.C. and Virginia, who specializes in marketing mid-century modern properties and helping buyers find just the right home for their families–and their cool furniture. I can be reached at 301-503-6171 or via e-mail at michael@moderncapitaldc.com.

When my wife, daughter and I moved back to D.C. in 2005, I started looking for a resource about mid-century modern homes and neighborhoods in the area. I couldn’t find anything, so I started the blog Modern Capital.

The earlier blog, and now my new site, is dedicated to covering mid-century modern and modern real estate, design and events in the D.C. area. It also is committed to raising awareness and supporting efforts to preserve the region’s mid-century modern architecture.

This passion for informing people about the variety of mid-century modern homes in the area and an intense interest from readers looking for a real estate professional who understands and appreciates this type of architecture, led me to pursue my real estate license.

I am a proud supporter of the D.C. Preservation League, Docomomo-US, the National Building Museum, the National Trust for Historic Preservation the 2016 Hollin Hills House and Garden Tour. I am also a Board Member of Docomomo DC.
