Rob Grant staff
LAKE Rob Grant & Associates, Real Estate, has had Ruth Chasolen
on staff as a real estate sales agent since 2005. Grant said he was
especially pleased that Chasolen came to RGA with a broad background
Her prior experience includes her role as vice president of sales and
marketing in a high-end furniture manufacturing company founded by her
grandfather and father in Paterson, N.J. in 1935. She was in charge
of showroom sales of their traditional, hand-carved furniture and worked
closely with designers and their clients. "Working with the interior
design trade also offered me the opportunity to see a somewhat related
business, real estate sales, as an interesting and rewarding profession,"
Chasolen said. "My move to Saranac Lake has enabled me to combine
my love for this special town, its people, culture and history with
a career in real estate. It has provided a unique opportunity to bring
my enthusiasm to others seeking real estate in the area."
Chasolen said her goal was to find employment with a top agency who
shared many of the principals and ideas of her former workplace. "I
feel very fortunate to have connected with Rob Grant & Associates,"
Chasolen said. A resident of Saranac Lake, Chasolen at one time owned
a home in Jay where she vacationed with her family for many years, thus
cultivating her appreciation for the Adirondacks and all it offers.
She attended William Paterson University, majoring in psychology. She
has two sons, one a dentist who lives in Sarasota, Fla. and the other
a jazz pianist who lives in Manhattan.
