On December 30th, 2011 Signature Properties integrated into a Meadows Mountain Realty branch office and is operating under the Meadows banner.
The owner of Meadows Mountain Realty, Judy Michaud, and the previous owner of Signature Properties, Lynn Kimball, have a long & successful history together. They both moved to Highlands in the mid 1980’s and worked under Johnny White, Director of Sales, known at the time as ”Highlands Falls Realty”. This team sold out Highlands Falls Country Club and in 1996 Lynn purchased the real estate firm from the developer of Highlands Falls. She expanded the company into the general real estate business under the name of Signature Properties. After 22 years as a Broker at Signature Properties, Judy had the opportunity to purchase another local real estate brokerage firm Meadows Mountain Realty. She said “Although I loved working with Lynn and Johnny at Signature Properties, I saw this as an opportunity to build a legacy for my family. I am blessed to have a great group of brokers and staff plus I get to work with my two daughters, Michelle Michaud Muraco and Patricia Michaud Cox, both of whom play a significant role in the success of our company.” Lynn fully supported Judy in her endeavor and they have always remained close friends.
Their simple explanation for this move is that “although we were unique apart and we are powerful together.” Kimball and Michaud both said, “It is truly a blessing for us to be working together again.”
Judy plans to combine the best of what both firms have to offer into one dynamic real estate firm. They both noted, “This is a new day in the real estate industry and technology is essential in marketing property”. If you check it out on the internet, Meadows’ presence speaks for itself. In 2011, Meadows Mountain Realty far exceeded the number of sales of any other real estate firm in Highlands.
Meadows Mountain Realty will now have two locations. The original Signature Properties location across from Highlands Falls Country Club has become a Meadows office. Lynn will remain as Broker-in-Charge and under Meadows Mountain Realty will have more time to do what she does best, list and sell real estate and assist the team of brokers at the Highlands Falls location in doing the same. Meadows will maintain their current office in Downtown Highlands. However, in April they will move their Downtown location to Church Street, in the Old Edwards Inn complex.
