About Modern Charlotte

Gail Jodon - Realtor®, Broker, Owner
I have been crazy for mid-century modern design for years and consequently am an avid collector (code for hoarder) of all things modern. My MadMod addiction has led me to flea markets, estate sales, yard sales, eBay and yes... curbside cruising! I have amassed a good deal of knowledge along the way (not to mention some great MCM goodies) and wanted a way to share it with fellow MCM lovers, like you!

I started LiveModernCharlotte.com in 2010 in hopes of bringing you great ideas for mid-century modern living and new MCM resources.

A Little About Me

My love affair with mid-century modern homes began years ago when I was a teenager growing up in a 1950’s Midwest neighborhood.

When I moved to Charlotte in 2002, I was immediately captivated by Charlotte’s modern homes. Charlotte’s mid-century modern heritage is rich; from modest atomic ranches in the Madison Park neighborhood to the sprawling MCM custom homes of the Cloisters and Foxcroft. I have found interesting modern homes in almost every neighborhood of Charlotte. I was surprised and dismayed at how poorly these modern homes were being marketed and were generally ignored. As a result, modern homes were demolished or sold for land value.

I am happy to have become a part of what is now a thriving Modern Charlotte community of homeowners, buyers and modern enthusiasts. I have researched neighborhoods, mid-century modern architects and actively work with non-profit groups that promote preservation of Charlotte’s mid-century modern architecture.

In 2009, Charlotte had its very first Mid-Century Modern Home Tour of which I was happy to chair in partnership with Historic Charlotte. It was a huge success and featured a whopping 18 MCM homes! I also assist George Smart of Triangle Modernist Houses with his research on Charlotte’s MCM architects and mid-century modern home inventory.

My goal as a real estate broker has been to avidly promote these wonderful homes which led to the creation of my site ModernCharlotte.com and to Modern Charlotte Realty.
