Arthur and Florence Lee recognized the advantages of Columbia County Life and moved to Red Rock in 1955. They realized there was a need for a real estate agency and, in 1961, opened their real estate office. The Arthur Lee name became a by-word as newcomers moved to the area. When Arthur died in 1975, his son George Lee, then Canaan Town Justice, took over ownership of the company.
By that time, Jean Price had already made a name for herself and in 1985 was invited by him to become one of his agents . She quickly became a top producer, a distinction she still enjoys today.
When George retired in 1987, he offered the agency to Jean, recognizing she had the work ethic to continue its name and tradition.
