By Leah Schmalz

When broker and realtor Kelli Enos decided to establish an office location for Savvy Solutions Real Estate, she wanted it to feel like a home. A fresh coat of paint, cozy waiting area, refinished floors and decorative accents transformed the space at 7708 Matthews-Mint Hill Road into a welcoming environment.

After sitting vacant for years, Mint Hill native Jessica Harris has plans to convert the five buildings and three ball fields into a place of hope for children throughout the area, with a proposed opening date of August 2017.

After praying and talking to others about her vision, Harris met with the current owners of the building in September to discuss her ideas for the property. Negotiations brought the property price down to $150,000, with just $50,000 of that required to close on the sale.  […]
