Chris Von Lunen
Chris has loved Brevard County since first coming here as a child and now he and his wife are raising their two beautiful children in Viera.
After getting a business degree from the University of Central Florida, he caught the real estate bug from buying his first house complete with renters and repairs. Getting exposure to the potential of property ownership, he quickly became hooked on real estate investment.
That led to purchasing foreclosures, short sales and new home construction; whole house renovations, creative financing and tax deferred exchanges; Internet marketing, mega open houses and nail biting negotiations. From the inside out, he’s worked with buyers and sellers, appraisers and inspectors, banks and private lenders.
And now he’s offering years of inside information to his clients and making it a priority to provide a better way. He’s known for great customer service, consistent communication, strong attention to detail and ensuring a positive, seamless experience.
He’s come to develop a unique philosophy that it’s about the people, not the agent. He likes to tell clients, “I’m not number one, YOU are!”

Intro When embarking on a new adventure, a guide helps you navigate unfamiliar territory.That’s true whether you are climbing a mountain, diving on a reef – or building a custommodern home. Leah Carpenter is your guide at Modern Duran. She walks you through every aspect ofdesigning and building a distinctive, custom, luxury residence. The streamlined spaces,clean lines, and details of these Phil Kean-designed homes are a refreshing change formany clients in Brevard County. Leah ushers them through the process and explains theins and outs of modern-living homes.
Family Tradition Leah was born into the home-building business. Her dad was a custom-home builder inMelbourne for 30 years before retiring. Mom was an interior decorator. Leah’s father wasalways on the cutting edge of design because he got his start in California. He relocatedthe family to the East Coast to start his company and bring that distinctive California stylehere to the Sunshine State.Growing up in the custom-home business gave Leah an appreciation forbuilding things from the ground up. She saw the appeal of creating a home from scratch and making it exactly what the buyer needs, based on their lifestyle.But there was one primary difference between daughter and parents: Their taste andstyle were significantly different. While her parents built homes with a more traditional style, Leah gave them her opinion of how to modernize the designs. Even as a young girl,she was trying to inject a little Frank Lloyd Wright into Brevard County’s newest homes.
International Flair After high school, Leah’s affinity for doing things her way led to a career in theentertainment industry and homes in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Houston, Miami, andJapan. After 15 years, she came full circle and moved back to Melbourne so her kidscould grow up in the same small-town atmosphere she enjoyed.Leah worked in general real estate for a while after returning home, but her first love wasalways new construction. She thrives on guiding clients through the rough spots andcreating a seamless building experience. Going to work for Christopher Burton Homes and Modern Duran gave her the opportunity to merge an innate awareness of thehome-building process with her lifelong admiration of clean, modern design.Living in Japan only strengthened Leah’s appreciation of minimalist design elements.Now more than ever, she sees the beauty in connecting indoor and outdoor livingspaces and looking at every component of the home as a piece of functional art.
Personal Experience Leah’s position as a Modern Living Consultant focuses on customer service. It’s arole forwhich she is uniquely qualified after sitting on both sides of the table. A few years ago,she had the challenging experience of building her own custom home with a traditionalgeneral contractor. Leah personally worked through all the issues that go along withhiring a builder who doesn't understand the client’s vision.That was before Modern Duran. Back when the only local option for building a modernhome was to hire a traditional builder and try to pull him along to see your vision.Things are different now. Leah is ready to shepherd you through the home-buildingprocess with the insights gleaned from her own experience and a lifetime around the business.
