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.

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.

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.

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.

Emma and I wanted to thank you both for everything! Stephanie, you were so patient and helpful in our home search. As first time home buyers we really appreciated all the guidance you provided. Geri, we really appreciate your help in the negotiations. We felt very well represented throughout. We are so excited about our new home and we love it very much already. We really feel like we found the perfect first home for us. So thanks again for all of your help and guidance.

Josh & Emma, Burlington 2014

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.

Geri Reilly and her team made the process of viewing, contracting, dealing, and closing on a home very smooth. They took a lot of the anxiety out of our first time home buying experience.

Mieko, 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.
