Dear Carolyn, Our lives changed for the better the day we met you. We have now moved in our new townhouse and are delighted to be here. Thanks you so much for taking the time to show us different properties and keeping the best for last! It was a pleasure doing business with you.
 

Tom & Micheline, Shelburne, VT

Thank you so very much for all that you've done in selling the farm land and getting us through each situation that occurred. Take care and God bless!

George, Dawn and Ken

I can't thank you and Carolyn enough for this dream come true! I haven't stopped smiling since Friday and randomly cry in happiness! I told Billy last night that my cheeks are starting to hurt from smiling all the time. Thank you so much Geri!

Kelley, Jericho

Hi Geri, Just wanted to let you know that we are pleased with the result and appreciate all your efforts. Please extend our thanks and appreciation to your team.

Bill, Winooski

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 staff were wonderful throughout the entire sales process. Anytime we had a question they were extremely quick to find the answer and get back to us immediately. She had people on call to quickly and inexpensively fix items that needed repair. She was able to achieve our goal of selling our home when other agencies had fallen short. I would most definately recommend Geri Reilly Real Estate for folks and families alike who are looking to buy or sell a home in Vermont.

Tina & Sam, Milton

My wife and I would highly recommend Geri and her staff should you need to purchase or sell a home in the area. We worked primarily with Stephanie O'Brien and Geri Reilly and had a wonderful experience with both. They knew the area of Chittenden County that we were looking to buy in very well, and kept us abreast of new homes coming onto the market. They also worked very hard to sell our home in a timely fashion during a tough time of the year to sell. The staff is very professional and responsive to questions or concerns that came up during the process. We have worked with four different real estate agencies through the years during our home buying and selling, and by far had our best experience with Geri and her team.

Brad & Anne, South Burlington

Geri has by far been the best realtor we have ever worked with. She was always professional but in a warm, friendly way. I often felt like I must be her only client because her attention and responses were so prompt, even though I know how busy she is. We sold our house promptly and found a great condo, all thanks to Geri!

Lynn, Essex

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

From my initial contact with Geri Reilly concerning my interest in the area, she and her staff provided me with outstanding service. They provided me with detailed information about the market, responded in a timely manner to my queries and requests, arranged a highly organized and efficient weekend of home tours that was consistent with my expressed interests, and represented my interests efficiently and professionally as we worked through the negotiating process and final closing of my new home.
