Betsy’s passion for real estate grew during her 17+ years working for the largest modular home manufacturer on the East Coast. Throughout her tenure, she was a key player in handling work from accounting and office management to event planning and marketing. A New Hampshire native, before beginning her career, Betsy and her husband enjoyed four years living in Japan while he served the US Air Force. Both were eager to return home and establish roots in New England. In 2018, the Merrill family moved to Vermont when she was introduced to Coldwell Banker Hickok & Boardman. Excited to be back in the real estate industry, Betsy worked as an assistant to Michaela Quinlan, handling transaction management, client communications and marketing. Michaela has been recognized among the top 5% of all Coldwell Banker Agents worldwide and is the recipient of the 2019 Seven Days Readers’ Choice for Best Real Estate Agents. As Michaela’s business continued to grow, Betsy became licensed to elevate the services they can provide clients, forming the Michaela Quinlan Team. Outside of real estate, Betsy’s passions include hiking, yoga, energy work and cooking delicious plant based meals for her family. She also is active in supporting initiatives that end food insecurity. Formerly foster parents for teenage girls, she and her husband have firsthand experience seeing how stability in food, housing and a nurturing environment play a vital role in developing independent living skills.
Betsy lives in South Burlington with her husband, Jon and their daughter. They are very active in Vermont’s incredible outdoors.
