Yvette Freeman is a haunter of flea markets, where she picks forsaken treasures out of the trash, but she also has a day job.
“I’m a real estate developer who just happens to be a designer who owns a furniture store,” she says. One of Freeman’s current areas of interest is the Northwest Washington neighborhood of Bloomingdale. Her restored treasures now include an early 1900s vintage townhouse with some unusual features.
Freeman bought the house the way real estate pros do things — very creatively.
“The house was not on the market,” Freeman, 47, says. “We had made six or seven other offers on properties, and it didn’t work out. I saw permits in the window of this house, and, being in the business, that’s what I’m looking for.”
