    Eric is not only a compassionate but knowledgeable professional. He took the time to listen to my needs/concerns/wants and was honest and helpful in making my sale a success. I would highly recommend Eric for your real estate transaction needs. I certainly will use him in the future.

    Sold a Condo home in 2018 in Burlington, VT

    Eric went above and beyond to help us find our first home!! Took us to almost a dozen house before we stumbled onto the one we wanted. He had his work cut out for him in dealing with a “for sale by owner” but he took it with great stride. He was always super prompt, he would get the information  we requested from each house visit within 24 hours, he also gave great outside opinion as to what he thought about the property’s and various things to look for that suited us. He made sure to get to know who we were as a couple so as to better refine our search for a home. Eric went above and beyond, once we found our home he made sure that we got it! He worked out all those awesome contractual things that being a buyer without help would have stunk to try and figure out. Eric kicks butt

    Bought a Single Family home in 2018 in Jeffersonville, VT.

    It was a truly great experience working with Amanda to find and purchase our first home. She made us feel at ease with the process, and her knowledge and level of communication was top notch. I would recommend Amanda to anyone who is looking to purchase a home.

    Bought a Single Family home in 2019 in Jeffersonville, VT.

    Excellent service in all respects. House sold in one day. Rich has a keen understanding of the real estate market, including how to set an appropriate price and prepare for sale. We had two full price offers the first day it went on market.

    Our experience with Rich Gardner and his team was terrific from the first point of contact through our closing. We filled out an online inquiry and had a call within 15 minutes. Rich came to our house for the consultation and, refreshingly, was the only broker who visited who had not already decided what our home was worth. He brought no “comps” with him—just wanted to see the house and what it had going for, and against it. The three other brokers we had in to compete for our business brought sales plans and comps with them and had already decided where in the real estate pecking order our house fell. After spending 90 minutes learning our house, asking detailed questions and describing his process, he scheduled a meeting with us for a few days later (this was over a major holiday so likely would have been sooner) in which we visited him at his office and he presented his plan for how best to sell our house and position it price-wise. It is important to note that we were selling our house in an “off” time—right after the new year—and were worried about traffic and interest. Honestly, Rich’s suggested list price was higher than the other three brokers and by quite a bit. We were worried that our house would languish on the market and we would have to cut the price. We laughed with Rich that he had to convince us to list our price higher since I am sure that his arguments with potential sellers is the opposite. Rich assured us that our list price was do-able and backed it up by showing us apples-to-apples comparisons of homes in our area that had sold. Everyone on Rich’s team, especially Allison and Rebecca, were terrific to work with. Every time we had a question, someone was there to answer it. The follow through/follow up was amazing. The pictures of our house were beautiful. Now for the best part, our house sold the day it went on the market for more than the asking price with another offer as a back-up on the same day. Clearly that doesn’t always happen, but even selling a home in an off time of the cycle, Rich knew what he was doing. Our closing went well (we were dealing with terrific buyers and they had a great agent, as well) and was smooth with no big surprises. Rich has integrity and his team will earn your respect. We highly recommend Rich and the Gardner Group

    I worked with Matt earlier this year and he was AWESOME – superior knowledge of the local area, buying process, and all things technical. He was always able to accommodate our schedule and was always very prompt and responsive. Matt is not only a great realtor, but an all-around nice guy. It was a pleasure working with Matt and I would not hesitate to recommend him.

    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.

    I have worked with Jay twice and the Gardner Group as a whole five times for purchases and/or sales of property over 10 years. I could not make a higher recommendation for a greater group of folks. Jay responded almost immediately to every inquiry I posed. Their team is not only hard working and  professional, but make you feel comfortable throughout the process, and take the stress that comes along with purchase/sale to as low as it can be. Thanks for everything!

    Mikail Stein is one of the premier real estate agents in Chittenden County. His knowledge and passion for the industry set him aside from his peers. Mikail helped my wife and I purchase our first property together, and we couldn’t have asked for a better agent. Mikail knew just the right amount to encourage us, while offering honest, and valuable input. He navigated us through the buying process from start to finish- while we looked at a variety of options to determine the best fit for us. He was incredibly patient with us, but was always eager to show us the next property. What began as a professional relationship grew into a personal friendship, and we look forward to working with Mikail again in our next purchase/sale.

    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.
