Raving Fans

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

Michael and I would like to thank you for all your patience and hard work in getting our house sold.

Michael and Donna, Colchester, VT

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

Thank you so very much for all that you've done in selling the farm land and getting us through each situation that occurred. Take care and God bless!

George, Dawn and Ken

Decided to go with Geri Reilly because of her experience, and knowledge. We were pleasantly surprised by her work ethic. She handled every detail of the listing and sale of our home. Questions and concerns were addressed promptly. Her knowledge of the market is thorough. Geri Reilly moves real estate.

Mike & Pam, Milton

Geri you are the best. Thank you for all the extra attention you paid to mom and her family. You did exactly what you said you would and went up and beyond getting that house sold.

Carole, South Burlington 2014

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.

Lisa

Thank you for all your help! You went above and beyond what you needed to do!

Jeff, Fairfax, VT

Thanks for all the work. You have a great team. Always on top of things. Pictures were great. Advertising was wonderful. Thanks for all your help in listing and buying. We might have spent too much on the buying end without your input.

John and Janice, Williston

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!
