Thank you all so much for the part you played in my new home purchase. Stephanie, without you there would be no perfect home, you persisted in finding the exact one to my specs, Geri for always being on top of it all (what would we all do without dot loop). I can't wait to get back there to see it! I know this was all worth it!

Robin, California

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

I can't thank you enough for the incredible job you did on the listing, showing and sale of my condo in Williston. Your professionalism and skills are unmatched! You made the whole process enjoyable and educational. I very much appreciate all your help and guidance. I wish you continued success!

I couldn't have asked for a better real estate professional. Geri Reilly is a very knowledgeable, gently persistent, courteous, honest professional who is willing to go the extra ten miles to get the sale and closing done. Geri Reilly Real Estate are a great team to have on your side and her experience and contacts made what initially seemed an impossible closing very possible. Due to the seller's bank's miscommunication and their lack of follow up, I had to close in one day or have my dream house go to auction on the following day despite the fact that the bank had accepted my short sale offer. Geri and her team helped make the closing happen; I closed just shy of the 5:00pm deadline! She is definitely the best in my book.

S. Brown, Colchester

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

Geri and her team made us feel like we were their only clients with the personal attention they gave to every detail of our home buying experience. Any and all questions or concerns in the process were immediately responded to and addressed to our complete satisfaction. We appreciated their expertise and guidance and were confident that they were working in our best interest every step of the way. We are now happily living in our dream home thanks to Geri Reilly Realty.

Kathleen & Richard, Richmond

I would highly recommend Geri Reilly Real Estate to anyone. Geri Reilly works hard to get the job done and is very successful at doing that. She sold my condo for what I asked for, and her, and her staff were very helpful in guiding me to the closing.

Angela, 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

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

Joey & Karen

A tiny note with a great big thank you. You were great to work with and I appreciate all your help. Can't wait for you to see my new abode.
