You don’t survive for a century in the real estate business, let alone flourish, without providing the kind of service that results in repeat clients, referrals and positive, infectious word-of-mouth. But at Blanchard and Calhoun, service goes beyond the transactional. It’s a belief. A philosophy. A cornerstone of our corporate character.
Service was built into the foundation of Blanchard and Calhoun from the very beginning because it was a part of founder George Blanchard’s own make up. Example? When the Augusta Lions Club formed in 1922, George Blanchard was there — not just to help with the development of the chapter, but as part of the formal reception committee that met the visiting delegations of Lions Club members traveling to Augusta for the presentation of the charter, some from as far away as Atlanta and Savannah.
George Blanchard understood that service isn’t simply an aspect of good business, it’s a necessary element of community and a responsibility of the civic-minded, and because it was central to his own being, he was willing to roll up his sleeves and lead by example, even when it wasn’t easy or convenient. It’s a legacy of service that we continue to follow to this day.
