Well, just like that another year has flown by and one thing is for certain, we have so much to be thankful for. For a great team, our wonderful clients, our loving families, friends and so much more.
When Josh and I set out to start our own brokerage last year, it was a risk. We stepped away from what was safe and familiar but it was absolutely worth it. We learned so much, especially that we have a team that we can count on and the best clients in the world. We would not be here if it were not for you. We estimate that by the end of 2019, we will have helped our clients purchase and sell over 100 homes with an estimated total of over $19 million dollars of real estate closed.
Our big leap of faith this year was starting our own design company. Advising our clients on design and staging has been something we have always done. But we realized we felt really passionate about this side of the business and wanted to pursue further. Our biggest project of the year was Claybrooke. Josh and I purchased the home and completely renovated it (thanks to an incredible crew) in just about two months. We were so proud of the final product and handing over the keys to the new owner was really a special moment. Now going into the New Year, one of our focuses will be positioning our newly founded Monteith-Legault Design Company to take on multiple new projects.
In addition to these successes, the rest of our Monteith-Legault family also had many achievements throughout the year. Chris lost 140 lbs and had the highest grossing sales year of his career. Nick, our newest member of the team, got his real estate license and Bobbi passed the real university course and is in the process of getting her real estate license in early 2020. She also added a new furry member to her family, a black and white dog (Koda).
As we move forward into 2020 and a new decade, the future is bright we are excited to see what this new chapter holds for us.
Thank you again for your support. Happy holidays and enjoy a wonderful new year!
– Marji, Josh, Chris, Nick and Bobbi
