AEGIS-Michaud Properties, Inc.Who or what is AEGIS?
When Ann Michaud founded AEGIS-Michaud Properties, Inc. in 1995, she chose the name AEGIS because of its significance and historical meaning. According to the “Dictionary of Word Origins” by John Ayto, published by Arcade Publishing, Inc., New York, 1990, the word aegis came to English directly from Latin. “The notion of ‘protection’ contained in this word goes back to classical mythology, in which one of the functions or attributes of the Greek god Zeus (and later of Roman Jupiter or Minerva) was the giving of protection. This was usually represented visually as a shield…”
This “notion of protection” appealed to Ann in selecting her company name because it conveys her overall philosophy in providing Real Estate services. Also, the shield in the logo further reflects the historical protection concept and serves as a continuous reminder of AEGIS’ commitment of Excellence to our clients.
We specialize in residential sales, working with both the home seller and the home buyer, mostly in the resale of existing homes in upscale residential areas. We help people find fine homes in all price ranges throughout the Montgomery area.
