About Crugnale Associates
Brothers Mike and Chris started Crugnale Associates LLC after partnering with a Lexington, MA based landscaping company that has been servicing the surrounding community for over 30 years.
The brothers were first in business together while growing up in Belmont, MA. As kids, every snowstorm they would shovel snow for all of their neighbors. Through word of mouth, the initial 5 clients grew to over 15 clients over the years. After many years of shoveling snow for their neighbors, the brothers soon became the neighborhood handymen. Neighbors started to reach out for help with household chores such as moving furniture, cleaning out garages and painting living rooms. They were always more than happy to take on the work and help out their now friends.
During the summer months up until graduating from college, the brothers both worked at a golf course not too far from their home. With jobs starting out as caddies, they were able to move on to working in the pro shop and on the grounds crew. From a young age, Chris also worked with a local landscaping company for many years.
After graduating from college, both brothers pursued careers in the financial markets industry. After many years in the investment world, they both realized they would rather work outside than in an office. In spring 2016, Chris moved on from his career at an investment management firm to pursue an opportunity to work with a Belmont, MA based real estate development/landscaping company. In fall 2016, an opportunity to attain work trucks, equipment and some clients came about that was too good to pass up. The prospect of the brothers being able to work together again, building a business that they love led to the formation of Crugnale Associates LLC.
At Crugnale Associates LLC, we strive to offer the best landscape and snow removal services possible with a keen eye for detail. As a local family business we emphasize quality customer service and reliability.
