When our agents aren't shredding down the mountain, they are out and about across Northwest Vermont, helping homeowners prepare their homes for sale.

Clearing the Path to Success
Curb appeal is a key component of a successful home sale, and while things can look a little different in the winter months, a tidy property will stand out! As we close out the fall season, remove the remaining leaves from your property and your gutters before the first snowfall arrives.

Top 5 Mistakes Home Sellers Make

Ready to sell your home this spring? As the temperatures warm up in the Green Mountain State, you are not alone. Spring is one of the most common times of year for a homeowner to put their home up for sale, so it is essential to make sure your property is competitive against others coming to market. Throughout the process, there will be a variety of decisions for you to make, which will ultimately determine if you have a successful and profitable sale.
