There is much history between these women. They both moved to Highlands in the mid 1980’s when both Kimball and Michaud were hired by Johnny White to sell Highlands Falls Country Club. As of 1996, this team had sold out Highlands Falls Country Club. Kimball bought the real estate firm from the developer of Highlands Falls and proceeded into the general real estate business under the name of Signature Properties. After 22 years of service to Signature Properties, Judy had the opportunity to purchase the already successful real estate firm of Meadows Mountain Realty. Her motivation was to have a business of her own, along with her daughters Patricia Michaud Cox and Michelle Michaud Muraco, both of whom work with her and play a significant role in the success of Meadows Mountain Realty. Kimball fully supported Michaud in her endeavor and they have always remained close friends.
Their simple explanation for this move is that “we were unique apart and powerful together”. Kimball and Michaud both said, “It is truly a blessing for us to be working together again”.
Their plan is 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 alone far exceeded the number of sales of any other real estate firm in Highlands.
The original Signature Properties’ location across from Highlands Falls Country Club will remain the same with their existing team of brokers. 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 their team 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.
