Meet The Team! Elliot Rocheleau

Signature Spotlight...Elliot Rocheleau!

 

 

You may have encountered Elliot while inquiring about a rental property, or on a home showing. Let's learn a little bit more about Elliot...

 

What is your favorite part about working at Signature Properties? 

 

The variety of the work I do on a day to day basis...no two days are the same, and I truly enjoy a continually changing work environment. 

 

What is your favorite part of being involved in real estate? 

 

Meeting different people from all walks of life and getting to see/tour all of the great properties our region has to offer. It's a very interesting experience. 

 

Give one piece of advice to someone thinking of buying a home today.

 

Take your time and ask questions. There are tons of resources available to consumers today to help with the home searching and buying process. Although the process can seem daunting, there are plenty of people available to help you navigate the everchanging market. 

If your clients, or friends, were asked to describe you, what would they say?

 

I think they would describe me as: Friendly, Hardworking, Upfront and Helpful...at least I hope that's what they'd say! 

What do you like to do when you're not at the office?

 

I love to be outside. Snowboarding, and pretty much any outdoor activity I can get my hands on will keepy me happy. My family recently bought a home of our own, so I spend a lot of time doing upgrades and all of the maintenance projects that come with homeownership. Of course, I also like to spend as much time as possible with my family. 

 

If you could learn to do anything, what would it be and why?

 

Everything...seriously though; I truly believe anyone can learn anything they put their mind to if given enough time. If I had unlimited time and money to learn, I would like to learn a little bit more about everything. If I had to pick a starting point, it would be renewable energy because I feel that technology is so important to our future. 

 

Who is your biggest inspiration?

 

My wife and my family are by far my biggest motivators. They help push me to learn and to better myself every single day.

 

That sounds like a great support system. Tell me more about your family.

 

I have an extremely energetic and fun 6 year old stepson, a beautiful and supportive wife, and a daughter on the way...I'm excited to say the least!

 

Tell me about your proudest achievement. 

 

I know this sounds rather cliche, but purchasing my first home for my family and myself has probably been my proudest achievement to date. I had a goal, I stayed dedicated to it, and I achieved it...what's more personally satisfying than that?

 

 

 

 

 

 

Daylight Savings Time Begins!

 

Spring is on the way!

Daylight Savings Time Begins Sunday March 8th.

 

Don't forget to set your clocks ahead 1 hour this Saturday before going to bed. Yes, we may be losing an hour of sleep, but we'll be gaining an extra hour of daylight each day!

 

This is also a great time to test your smoke detectors and change their batteries. 

 

With temperatures on their way up, you might be in spring cleaning mode. Check out these tips to spruce up your home for spring, and holding a successful lawn sale to clear out any extra clutter.
