I was honored to be nominated to the 2017 Inman Innovator Awards. Back in March, we decided to pioneer new lawn signs for the Capital Region community. We printed 200 Welcome lawn signs and made them available to our clients and supporters. We received overwhelming support and lots of positive feedback. Our story was picked up by the national real estate publication, Inman News.

The Inman News editors were so moved by our story we were nominated for the 2017 Innovator Award, for the most innovator marketing plan. Unfortunately we didn’t win, but we were proud to be recognized by the national publication among so many talented real estate brokers from across the country.

We’re not giving up. We’ll continue to innovate and experiment with new marketing.

Welcome Lawn Signs

UPDATE: Signs are here. If you’re interested, please submit your information via our order form.

Once you submit your order, you can call the office at 518-423-1916 during M-F, 9am-5pm. All signs will be available for pick up at our office (421 New Karner Rd, #11A Albany NY 12205).

Thanks again for your support. Although the signs are compliments of Monticello, we encourage you to make a donation to a local organization serving immigrants and refugees.
