A little over 4 years ago, Music Therapy Connections (my private practice and music studio) found a new home at 1234 Centre West Drive. My co-owner Katey and I were convinced it was meant to be when we first took a tour of the building; the layout was absolutely perfect for our needs.
Not only was the layout perfect, but so was the location. Our families commented on how convenient it was, and it also happens to be the exact midpoint between Katey’s house and mine. It’s also right down the street from our bank, Walgreens, and Starbucks (you know, the essentials!).
For the first two years, we shared the building with an eye doctor clinic until they moved out, leaving the other half of the building vacant ever since. It’s been nice having the common restrooms and parking lot all to ourselves, but our current landlord listed the building for sale, so we worried a day would come when a new owner would want our space for his or her own use.
Meanwhile, my husband was considering purchasing a building for his own company, Rambach Insurance Agency. Between the two of us, we had been paying a LOT of money in rent over the years, so when he found out my building was up for sale, his curiosity was piqued.
After looking at the available space on the other side of the building, crunching lots of numbers, consulting with lots of people, and doing some thinking, we made the decision to go for it. As of September 16, the newly formed Rambach Properties, LLC is the official owner of 1230/1234 Centre West Drive!
This is only the beginning of our adventure, though. Now begins the process of building out the vacant space to suit Zach’s needs and to create a 3rd space which we plan to rent out to another business (let me know if you’re interested!). Also, MTC is expanding our existing space to create a dedicated music therapy wing, which is super exciting for our team and for our clients.
We are looking forward to the day the dust settles and both my husband’s and my businesses are housed under one roof. It will be super convenient for handing off the kids as needed, and patrons of both our businesses will have a one-stop shop :)
Years ago, I suggested to Zach that we take on some kind of business venture together, and he mentioned the possibility buying real estate. I laughed at his idea thinking that would be the LAST thing we’d ever do together, but now here we are.
Thanks go out to our family for their love and encouragement, my team for their patience and support, and Matt Larison for these beautiful photos. Thank YOU for continuing to follow along with all my adventures! I have no doubt there are more to come.
