Raving Fans

I want to take this opportunity to offer a testimonial of the great work and service you provided during the marketing and sale of our home in Shelburne, VT. It was a unique property that appealed to a limited sphere of buyers in a serious downturn in real estate. And you SOLD IT! ...As far as I am concerned, you are the best real estate agent in Vermont and we are so happy we went with you. I highly recommend you to anyone looking to sell or a buy a house in Vermont.  

Jerry, Webster, NY

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!

Donald and Susan, South Burlington

Our experience with Geri Reilly covers our last three real estate transactions. Obviously we keep going back because of our strong satisfaction with her professionalism. She is an excellent communicator, extremely knowledgeable, and has a passion to get the job done the right way. In addition, she is a very friendly, sensitive, and fair person. We would certainly use her again, and highly recommend her to anyone.

Pat & Scott, Essex 2014

Geri and her team were great to work with. My wife and I purchased a home from them in South Burlington VT. Ellen Zdyb showed us many homes and is by far the hardest working realtor I have ever met. She was great to work with. Once we went under contract, Geri and Kim took the reigns and worked for us tirelessly. The entire office was great to work with and I would highly recommend Geri and her team to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

Erin & Jared, South Burlington 2014

Your knowledge of the Burlington area was fantastic...thank you for your professionalism and easy-going style. We loved working with you!

Heather & Scott, Burlington, VT

We had a great experience with Geri and her team. Dedicateed, professional, and knowledgable of the market. Geri's work ethic is quite evident when you start to work with her. In our case, to receive the best offer possible for your house. Our house sold after 3 days on the market, and very close to asking price. For anyone looking for a highly respected, dedicated real estate person she is the one. I would like to thank Geri and her team again for their hard work.

Ian & Dale, Essex Jct 2014

I can never thank you enough for all your hard work on this. We could have never got this far without your persistence and professionalism dealing in some of the most difficult situations.  Again, I THANK YOU SO MUCH!!  I will always continue to tell everyone use Geri or you're NUTS!! We're your newest biggest fans!

Eric, Colchester

It was very re-assuring to have Geri and Ellen to participate in the process of the purchase of my condo! Thanks so much for taking the time to answer my questions and making yourself available! Best of luck and continued success with your business!

Heidi, 2014

You gave Bobbi and I marvelous counsel over the years; should we ever again look for a property in Vermont, you'll be our agent - you're the best!!

Gino, Pennsylvania

Hi Geri, Bryce and Team - Thanks for ALL your help this year. House is great and pool was fun last summer!
