Amherst Madison Summer Advisor Forum


Our Vision is a real estate brokerage whose primary function is to serve as a pillar of ideas, professionalism, and community. A group of people who deal in humanity, not in transactions or tools. A special place because of special people. Professionals with heart. A company built to last by people who care. Impassioned with the vitality and spirit of everything that encompasses the word “home”.

Amherst Madison was created to show people that a real estate brokerage can be more. More than the status quo of insincere offerings made by insincere people who only pose as “professionals”. Instead, we can be connectors and creators; mavens; trusted advisors. Diligent and sincere members of a community who are more interested in building trust through lifelong relationships than in the dollar figure attached to their next sale. A brokerage can and should be a home where peers and colleagues gather in partnership to make each other better in order that they might serve clients and reinvest into community. A place where people mastermind and share great ideas with each other because “a rising tide lifts all boats”.
