Bobbe Maynes REALTOR
A member of the Coldwell Banker International Sterling Society (the top 17% of all Sales Associates Internationally), Bobbe Maynes was also named one of five "Rookie All Stars of the Year" by the Northwest Vermont Board of Realtors in 2015. A known community leader and marketing/communications expert, Bobbe brings that experience to her work with home buyers and sellers. The former Director of Communications for United Way of Chittenden County, she also served as Vermont’s first Commissioner of Tourism & Marketing and was the founder/co-owner of two local inns. After her retirement from United Way in 2012, Bobbe realized that a career in real estate was an ideal way to combine her marketing and sales skills, love of architecture and commitment to creating positive change for Vermonters.
"I have had many, many years of working directly with people to help them achieve their goals or find what makes them happy and fulfilled. Teaching, owning and operation two bed and breakfast inns, heading up the State of Vermont's Tourism Department, and being part of the executive team at United Way of Chittenden County gave me immeasurable experience working with and for others in collaborative ways. What could be more important when buying or selling a home? I bring that skill and many hours of volunteer community leadership to Coldwell Banker Hickok & Boardman Realty - a socially conscience company that stands above other organizations in service to others and the real estate industry."

I cannot stress enough what a joy it was to work with Bobbe and Robert. My husband and I were in a unique situation and had to buy a house fast. Not only were Bobbe and Robert super understanding of our needs and situation, but they provided what felt like one-on-one service and was always available via text, phone, or email. Throughout the process, Bobbe and Robert were proactive and took all of the guess work out of the transaction. I would highly recommend working with Bobbe and Robert; you will get the attention that you need with service that is exceptional!

Client comment: Robert was my main contact. He was attentive to detail, consistently in contact, and delightful to work with, He even power washed my front porch before the house went on the market! Bobbe and he developed and executed a great, straightforward marketing plan, not based on magical thinking but on solid tactics. One new feature they tried was inviting the neighborhood for a separate showing. The buyer didn’t appear from that network, but it was a great tactic, and one I appreciated. I was extremely happy with both Robert and Bobbe as my agents.

Bobbe consistently went above and beyond with attention to detail, knowledge of the area and the process, and helpfulness with matters not within a broker's normal scope of work made this by far the best agency relationship we've ever enjoyed. We couldn't have been more pleased & give her our highest recommendation.

Bobbe and Robert could not have been more attentive and action oriented toward the goal of selling our home. Their professionalism was top-notch! We thank them, and their amazing team, for all the work to get our house well positioned to attract the new owners. We have not stopped touting the work done by the Maynes team!
- Susan & Jerry Martin, Grand Isle
Bobbe is in every way a professional and is attentive to detail and the needs of her clients even before they know they have needs. She is friendly and easy to work with. She makes the selling and buying process (both of which are cumbersome) easier. The professionalism that emanates from Hickock and Boardman is without exception as always. We could not be happier with our process and would recommend and be her client again.

Working with Bobbe and Robert was fantastic! My home sold quickly and there were many details that needed to be covered in a short amount of time. They were there every step of the way. I highly recommend them and will absolutely refer them to family and friends!
