Tech tools are simplifying the sale and renovation of homes.
By Charlene Oldham

SHELLIE ROBERTS AND wife Leslie Falch were on the road to Washington state, where they planned to relocate, when their real estate agent called to tell them about Missouri’s impending stay-at-home order.

Stagers back in St. Louis had just finished prepping the couple’s home in Tower Grove South for a photo shoot to publicize the sale of the home, which was scheduled to go on the market the first day of the stay-at-home order.

To fast-track the process and permit showings before the shutdown, their agent, Christopher Thiemet, founder of Circa Properties, offered to snap the photos himself on a Saturday and take the listing live, complete with a virtual tour, by Sunday. “This was fantastic, because that same day, since it was before the lockdown, some people were able to come in and view the house,” Roberts says.

Cut from the Same Cloth

“Turkey Tracks” is a 19th-century quiltmaking pattern that has the appearance of little wandering feet. Patterns like the tracks, and their traditions and myths, have been passed down through the generations, from their frontier beginnings to today, where a generation of makers has embraced the material as a means of creating something new. Olivia Jondle is one such designer. Here, she’s taken an early turkey track-pattern quilt, cut it into various shapes, and stitched the pieces together, adding calico and other fabric remnants as needed. The result is a trench coat she calls the Pale Calico Coat. Her designs are for sale at The Rusty Bolt, Jondle’s small-batch fashion company based in St. Louis. —SAMANTHA STEVENSON
