The popular HGTV renovation show gives homeowners the choice of loving their home or listing it after the update. The decision often comes down to the family not wanting to leave their existing neighborhood where they have established friends and relationships. It’s an scenario that plays out across the country on a daily basis.
For one Downtown San Antonio resident, the phrase has a unique meaning. As one of Kuper Sotheby’s most successful real estate brokers, Nicholas Kjos, is also a proud resident at Alteza above the Grand Hyatt. Having shown Alteza to many potential homeowners, Nicholas sold himself on the lifestyle and moved into Alteza last year. Kjos was enthusiastic about partipating in “Their Own Words”, a short video presentation on TheAlteza.com where homeowners share their reasons on why they love living at Alteza.
“The floor-to-ceiling windows here at the Alteza really showcase our downtown,” says Kjos. “When I bring clients in, they are in awe. From there, I can point out….this is the restaurant you’re going to be going to every day.” Kjos adds, “One of the amazing things happening right now is Hemisfair park. Imagine going back and buying a condo adjacent to Central Park right before it started.”
Kjos’ excitement for the Alteza lifestyle certainly fulfills the “LOVE IT” component, and now he can “LIST IT” too. Kjos secured the resale listing for the most luxurious penthouse at Alteza. According to Kjos, it was the views that sold Broadway producer Paul Boskind on this two-story penthouse in downtown San Antonio. ‘”I was in awe. I looked at what else we had in San Antonio in terms of penthouses and there was nothing like it,’ says Mr. Boskind. He paid $2.975 million for the home in the Alteza Residences above the Grand Hyatt hotel in 2013. Nicholas Kjos of Kuper Sotheby’s International Realty is now listing the apartment for $4.5 million, and it was recently featured in the Wall Street Journal.
“LOVE IT” and “LIST IT” – You bet!
