“Rich and Natalie were excellent to work with! They were incredibly kind and responsive as we navigated each step of our move from out of state to Vermont with two little kids. They went out of their way many times to make the process smooth and easy. We were continually impressed by their attention to detail, vast knowledge and helpful advice at each step. We couldn’t recommend them more highly.” -Ashley & Ben purchased in Williston 2021

“I want to thank Charlotte for all you did for us in the successful selling of our home. I don’t know how we would have done it without you! You went way out of your way to handle all the extra details, no one else would have considered it, but you thought of and accomplished everything. Thank you Charlotte Gardner!
Working with Lauren and her team was a dream. We were working through the difficulties of purchasing a home from afar, and Lauren ensured we received prompt and friendly attention for every step of the process, she truly didn’t miss a beat. It made us feel as if we were present for the process despite not being there. I’ve been through many home buying/real estate transactions. My experience with Lauren is what I’d call the gold standard of customer care. She is extremely knowledgeable of her area, well versed in the details of her market, well connected to partners in the community, and always prompt to respond. I have, without hesitation, recommended her to several friends and she has provided the same outstanding experience to them as well.
Lauren was terrific! I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell. She was very knowledgeable and supportive as well. We appreciate all of her help in getting our home sold.Great work ??
Second Time using Rich and his team. Once again they went the extra mile to ensure our transaction went smooth and seamless. Would use Rich again if I ever had any real estate transactions in Vermont!
It was an absolute pleasure working with Amanda! This was the second house that I have purchased, but the first in many years. Amanda was responsive and a true advocate for me the whole process. She even came to the closing, not because she had to, but because she wanted to be a part of the process. If you are looking for a knowledge realtor, a wonderful person to work with, please ask for Amanda
Very knowledgeable, responsive and patient in what was a very difficult sale of our property. Rich was a pleasure to work with. If we were to sell another property would absolutely use Rich again.
Amanda was wonderful! Great sense of humor and a vast knowledge about real estate. She helped my boyfriend and I buy our home. She stood in our corner and gave honest and helpful advice when it came to negotiation. So happy we got to work with her!
We had the fortune of working with Rich on the original purchase of our condo and the sale. Rich is extremely knowledgeable, approachable and responsive. He takes the time to gain a genuine understanding of his clients wants and needs and truly has their best interests at heart. He also has a great team behind the scenes. We would definitely recommend him for any realtor needs!
