Residential Broker Michelle Larnard Opens Cohasset Headquarters
Accomplished South Shore Realtor Celebrates Growing Real Estate Business In Ceremony With Local Dignitaries
COHASSET, MA – Building upon 17-plus years of experience as a licensed residential real estate professional on the South Shore, Michelle Larnard recently celebrated the opening of her new eponymous residential brokerage firm on King Street (Route 3A) in Cohasset, MA. The milestone was marked with an official ribbon cutting ceremony that included participation from local dignitaries including State Senator Patrick O’Connor.
Ms. Larnard launched Michelle Larnard Real Estate Group in January of 2018 after several years as a top broker at William Raveis and Coldwell Banker. Michelle Larnard Real Estate Group brings a high degree of professionalism and expertise to each listing, employing the area’s leading real estate sales and marketing professionals. Ms. Larnard has a proven record of success and recognition as the top sales producer in the Town of Scituate as well as top office producer and listing agent five consecutive years from 2013 through 2017 at previous firms.
Since its launch, the Michelle Larnard Real Estate Group has brought 37 homes under contract in the first six months of 2018. The firm recently marked its 25th completed transaction, closing over $22m in sales volume since opening the business.
“The South Shore has always been home to me, and I take great pride in a job I love that allows me to promote the amazing quality of life among the communities we serve,” said Michelle Larnard. “I started my own brokerage to be able to deliver a white-glove level of service to our clients that is rooted on a foundation of expertise, responsiveness and performance. This level of customer service and attention can get overlooked in a hot real estate market, but I believe it distinguishes us at Michelle Larnard Real Estate Group.”
Having lived in Hingham, Norwell and Cohasset, and now raising her family of eight children in Scituate with her husband, Eric, Michelle (Boyle) Larnard brings a unique perspective to listing homes in the region. Specializing in luxury and waterfront properties, Ms. Larnard has several years of experience managing complex transactions for discerning clients. Additionally, Ms. Larnard’s team brings added expertise for those relocating to the area, dealing with new construction, or buying or selling a property with FEMA flood insurance stipulations.
The Grand Opening celebration included participation from the entire staff at Michelle Larnard Real Estate Group. State Senator Patrick O’Connor headlined a group of dignitaries who attended and helped to mark this milestone. Attendees cut a ceremonial purple ribbon and congratulated Michelle and her team on the new office, predicting that a “purple storm” would soon hit the South Shore with the team’s purple sand dollar real estate signs already ubiquitous around Hingham, Cohasset and Scituate.
“Michelle has deep roots in the South Shore community, and I both congratulate and wish her well with this new endeavor,” said State Senator Patrick O’Connor. “I applaud her entrepreneurial achievements and I’m excited to see this woman-owned business thrive. Michelle is a proven leader with a track record of success.”
With newly listed single family homes often only on the market for a matter of weeks, Ms. Larnard and her team are constantly finding innovative ways to distinguish their clients’ listings. Recently, a trolley tour of multiple listings was organized to show prospective buyers several homes in a relaxed, non-competitive setting, hoping to take the edge off of a stressful process. As the real estate market shows little sign of slowing down, Ms. Larnard hopes to expand her team and grow her business to connect with new buyers and establish meaningful relationships with owners preparing to sell their homes.
Michelle Larnard has been an active licensed Real Estate Agent since 2002, serving the residential market in the South Shore region of Massachusetts. Ms. Larnard is a member of the South Shore Realtors Association, the Massachusetts Association of Realtors, the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) and the National Association of Realtors. Ms. Larnard has a Bachelor of Arts in Economics from Amherst College and is a proud graduate of Notre Dame Academy in Hingham, MA. For more information visit www.larnardrealestate.com.
