High-end homes in the Med City market are rare commodities, so one luxury real estate brand is building its own.

Lakes Sotheby’s Realty, represented by Rochester Realtor Michelle Kalina , is marketing plans to build two model houses in the Millie Meadow Estates development in southwest Rochester.

The homes will be built by Zen Custom Homes, a Rochester design-build firm.

Kalina, who introduced Sotheby’s to Rochester in April, said the plan is to list the planned houses at $1.77 million each. The first one will be a five bedroom, five bath walk-out residence.

She is known in Rochester for her previous experience operating a beauty boutique called About Face, marketing diamonds and as the chief yogini and wellness coach at Michelle K. Yoga Experiences.
