...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

Thank you for your help with everything. I admire your knowledge, grace and professionalism. Thanks again for a job well done.

Karen, MA

Thank you is not enough to say for getting my house sold. I am so relieved to have it behind me and get on with my life. I have enjoyed working with you and would highly recommend you.

Joan, South Burlington, VT

Thank you again for helping us buy our new house. We're settling in slowly, and really love it. You guys were total pros to work with and I appreciate all of your help.

Mike, Shelburne

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

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 and her team make a complicated process seem like a breeze. The entire team is professional, knowledgeable, and a pleasure to work with. We very highly recommend Geri and her team — they are simply the best!
