Spindler was dubbed the “Queen of Alamo Square” by residents and agents working in the area but soon realized what she loved about the neighborhood was less about the location than the architecture. She simply couldnt get enough of the built-ins, carved wood, and detailing in these homes. “In a lot of cases, you cant even afford to create that anymore,” she says. She changed her tagline to “The Victorian Specialist” in 1996 and today estimates that some 80 percent of the deals she works on—with both buyers and sellers—fall into this style niche. “Its much more interesting than trying to pick a farm area,” she says.
Home layouts can also be optimized so animals can comfortably hang out with their human owners. Spring Creek Designs Smutko found that she and her husband were constantly needing to walk around their 60-pound German shepherd, Tess, in the kitchen. When the firm redesigned the room, she requested a larger aisle between the work island and sink. “We wanted Tess to be with us, but without being stepped on,” she says. She selected a hard quarter-sawn floor that would withstand Tesss claws. Technology and internet-enabled products can also help. Smart cameras and lights allow homeowners to keep tabs on pets and ensure theyre comfortable when alone in the house. New electronic collars can activate pet doors so that homes remain secure. Winter Park, Fla., architect, builder, and licensed interior designer Phil Kean incorporated that technology when he designed the New American Home in conjunction with the National Association of Home Builders. He also used an artificial turf called K9Grass that is designed specifically for dogs and eliminates the challenge of muddy paws and dead spots on the lawn.
