Geri is the best, I called her from Florida where I now reside and told her I wanted to sell my condo in Vermont. She handled everything, she had an electrician, fire saftey people, glass people and ther workers come to our condo to do some work required by inspection. She has a closing coordinator in her office that handles everything and keeps you informed as to what is happening. Geri sent me weekly info on who had been looking at the condo. Unbelievable experience!!! There is nobody better.

To everyone at Geri Reilly Real Estate: Thank you for a job well done. The entire process from listing to selling to closing went very smoothly and quickly. It was a pleasure doing business with your firm. We would recommend your company to anyone interested in buying or selling a home.

Carolyn and Gary, Florida

Geri and her team made us feel like we were their only clients with the personal attention they gave to every detail of our home buying experience. Any and all questions or concerns in the process were immediately responded to and addressed to our complete satisfaction. We appreciated their expertise and guidance and were confident that they were working in our best interest every step of the way. We are now happily living in our dream home thanks to Geri Reilly Realty.

Kathleen & Richard, Richmond

We cannot thank you enough in selling the apartment so quickly. You were great in handling the process. Again, thank you - you are the best!

Pauline & Reg

We greatly enjoyed working with Geri and her team. We were impressed with the advertising and what a beautiful virtual tour of our home. Very professional and well done. Our home sold in one month which was a great surprise since we tried on our own for a year without any results. We highly recommend Geri to get the job done.

Tammy & Brian, Fairfax VT

Geri was fantastic! The concierge services were a godsend. Geri was always on top of everything and walked us through the whole process!!

I recently purchased my first home with the help of Geri Reilly Real Estate after a referral from my brother and sister-in-law who have purchased 2 homes with them. My agent was Bryce and he was very knowledgeable of the local real estate market. From the very beginning I did not feel pressured at any time into putting an offer into any of the houses we looked at and felt that he was truly looking out for my interests in the process. Several months of looking and many, many emails to him about different homes I saw and I found the one I wanted to make an offer on. The purchase process could not have gone smoother and Geri and Bryce were very involved the whole time and fought tooth and nail for me in the negotiations. The office of Geri Reilly is staffed by an incredibly knowledgeable and helpful staff from top to bottom and their help made my first home buying experience truly a pleasure. I will certainly be doing all my future property transactions with them as my agent. I highly recommend working with them as they will treat you with respect and dignity and be on your side throughout the process!

We very much appreciate all you did for us during this whole process; from that first meeting we had at your office, to the house hunting fun, all the way to the closings. You have a great organization, so please thank everyone for us that played a role.

Brad & Anne, South Burlington  

Thanks. If it wasn't for you I would probably never have owned a house! You made it so easy. I love everything about my new home! Thanks for finding it for me. You make the world a better place.
