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.

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

Thanks to you, Carolyn and Geri for such a great job of managing this purchase. It felt great being in the hands of such a professional organization!

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

Dear Geri & Crew: Thank you so much for selling my Burlington property. You made it easy even though I was out of town. Thanks for organizing the repairs, letting me know what paperwork needed to be done and coordinating everything with my lawyer.

...we absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE our condo! I feel like we've been there forever, and it's only been a week. I am so glad that Carolyn set us up with our "listing cart"...I got the jump on seeing it before anyone else (and that Carolyn was able to get us in to see it right away)! Thank you for all your help, and please thank Carolyn and Ivy as well...they were great.

Leslie and Jim, Colchester, VT

Carolyn and Geri, thank you for all of your time, organization and most of all for being you! I'm thrilled with my new home.

Deb, VT

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!
