The Story of Market by Modern Nest
Phoenix natives and husband and wife duo, Brendan and Jillian Bader, started the company a little more organically than you might think. Brendan gained a love of home building and architecture as a young child sketching out home floor plans while his family remodeled their own homes. He then went on to earn his degree in Construction Management at Arizona State University. After graduation, he took on a short-term summer position with a builder in Newport Beach, CA which only solidified his love for the building industry. Brendan returned to Scottsdale, AZ to start his business flipping bank owned residential properties.
After losing their newborn daughter, Jillian left her teaching job to join Brendan full-time helping with his growing homebuilding business. After finding a love for design during that difficult time, Brendan and Jillian began building luxury spec homes in the Scottsdale, AZ area, which attracted lots of local attention.
After struggling to furnish their homes with pieces they truly loved, Jillian and Brendan decided to jump head first into the retail world and Market by Modern Nest was born. Our brick and mortar store, located in Old Town Scottsdale, AZ, opened December 5, 2020 and has been a really fun way to meet followers of ours in person and bring a piece of Modern Nest to all homes.
