Thank you so much for everything! You rock!!

Cheryl, VT

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

Ellen Zdyb and Geri Reilly were wonderful to work with and really looked out for my best interests when finding a new home as a first-time buyer. They made great recommendations for a loan officer and legal counsel to further ease the process of buying real estate. I certainly would recommend Geri Reilly Real Estate to anyone looking to purchase in Chittenden County.

Adam, Essex Jct

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!

Robert and Melissa, Westford

My wife and I would highly recommend Geri and her staff should you need to purchase or sell a home in the area. We worked primarily with Stephanie O'Brien and Geri Reilly and had a wonderful experience with both. They knew the area of Chittenden County that we were looking to buy in very well, and kept us abreast of new homes coming onto the market. They also worked very hard to sell our home in a timely fashion during a tough time of the year to sell. The staff is very professional and responsive to questions or concerns that came up during the process. We have worked with four different real estate agencies through the years during our home buying and selling, and by far had our best experience with Geri and her team.

Brad & Anne, South Burlington

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

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!

Jackie, South Burlington, VT

Dear Carolyn, Our lives changed for the better the day we met you. We have now moved in our new townhouse and are delighted to be here. Thanks you so much for taking the time to show us different properties and keeping the best for last! It was a pleasure doing business with you.
 

Tom & Micheline, Shelburne, VT

Just wanted to say thank you again for sticking with this. I know it was a long process and I'm grateful it's finally over. Will give a call when I'm looking for my next house!

Amy, Colchester, VT

Thanks. If it wasn't for you I would probably never have owned a house! You made it so easy. I love everything about my new home! Thanks for finding it for me. You make the world a better place.

Bev, New Haven, VT
