Betsy Forrester


After 41 years in the greater Burlington area, I still take delight in the natural beauty of Vermont every day! My knowledge of bike routes, trails for walking/skiing/snowshoeing, as well as schools, employers and events runs deep. Patiently helping clients find a home that matches their lifestyle and budget or providing the resources for a seller to maximize their sale go hand in hand with my professional, honest, diligent yet upbeat approach to real estate. In partnership with Meg Handler, we offer our combined experience in negotiation, marketing and problem solving, and together donate 10% of our profit to the Vermont Land Trust.


I cannot speak highly enough of the experience. Betsy was professional, highly responsive, diligent, and has a wonderful sense of humor. I always felt she was looking out for our best interest. It was clear she took her fiduciary responsibility seriously as my husband and I definitely would have paid more without her sage advice
- Buyers, Essex
Betsy was wonderful to work with throughout the whole process and made our first home buying experience pleasant and seamless. She took the time to get to know us and our priorities, and her guidance and expertise were invaluable, especially when it came to making an offer and navigating the purchase process.
- Buyers, S. Burlington
I cannot thank you enough for the patient, diligent professionalism you have brought to this transaction. We are grateful for your expertise and follow-through. Thank you again for a stellar performance!
