Between you, me and the lamp post,
if you want to blend in, we're not your people
Carrie and Christine had their "first date" at a local pizza shop in Arlington, MA, during the summer of 2021. Carrie had come to Leading Edge Real Estate to work with Christine and help the team launch a new brand. At that lunch and subsequent lunches, the two curly-haired Gen-X moms realized the power of their combined skills and experience. Their passion for helping those who help others find a home led to the launch of Post & Beam and brought them here today.
Where does the name Post & Beam come from?
The meaning of our name is rooted in home construction and is probably familiar to most of you in the real estate industry. The posts and beams are the framework of most homes constructed in the U.S.
The words "post" and "beam" also have alternate meanings that perfectly express our specialty.
The Post is the vertical structure that holds up a home, and "to post" means to announce or make something known.
The Beam is the horizontal reaching element that creates support in the framing, and "to beam" is to shine a light or to smile brightly.
The very definitions of the words that make up our name personify who we are; here to support you, help you communicate, and make you shine!
