Today is my birthday.
At the age of 46 I feel like life is just beginning.
This year has seen a lot of changes, and I’m at a very happy place in life.
In late 2007, Kathy Sollien and I left our brokerage firm in order to start our own firm RE/MAX Maple Leaf Realty.Â We spent a couple of months building the office space at 203 Northside Drive in Bennington and opened our doors in early February.
As everyone knows, this year has been a challenge for Buyers, Sellers, and in turn REALTORSÂ®.Â Our new agency is well-funded and capitalized, and we planned for this type of market, and we’ll be fine financially.
As we’ve moved through the year, we’ve been able to step back and look at the real needs of the marketplace.Â While there are other agencies who work in the Commercial Sales & Leasing market, I personally feel that my background in opening retail businesses and consulting to business owners gives me a unique perspective in the Commercial Market.Â It is for this reason that I created “The Richardson Group” which is now officially the Commercial Division of RE/MAX Maple Leaf Realty.
Another part of the commercial division is our Residential Marketing & Leasing services.Â We have created the infrastructure to be able to market residential rentals, screen tenants and write leases for area landlords.Â This process ensures a better quality tenant through proper screening and standardized rental guidelines.
These new offerings allow RE/MAX Maple Leaf Realty to be a full-service real estate brokerage, and I encourage you to call me today at 802-447-3210 to discuss how we can help you with buying, selling or renting your residential, commercial or investment property.
