Doug Boardman


Lauded by clients for his professionalism and expertise, Doug Boardman has been acknowledged by the real estate industry for his achievements while cultivating a business built on referrals.

Doug, whose grandfather and father were instrumental in Hickok & Boardman's early success, grew up in Burlington and graduated from Rice Memorial High School, after which he received a Bachelor's degree in economics from St. Lawrence University. 

Doug's achievements in the real estate field have been noted by the industry, and has earned the prestigious Coldwell Banker International Diamond Society award, which is given to the company's top performing agents. Doug also assisted the buyers of Burlington's two highest residential sales, with both deals representing multi-million dollar transactions.

His expertise extends from a high-end development straddling Lake Champlain's Malletts Bay, to working with buyers and sellers of existing homes in the Chittenden County. His focus also includes investment properties, lakefront properties and homes in Burlington's exclusive Hill Section.

Helping his clients make smart decisions drives Doug's real estate practice. "I enjoy the negotiating piece of it," he notes. "It's rewarding to put clients in a better financial position." Part of his approach includes using social networking to help clients, whether it's via Facebook or through old-fashioned social events.

Giving back to the community is imperative for Doug. His volunteer work and contributions have included Opportunities Credit Union, Sara Holbrook Center and its New North End Youth Center and has helped Coldwell Banker Hickok & Boardman Realty with its past United Way campaigns.

Doug lives in Shelburne with his wife, Hillary, and their three children, Millie, Freddie and Mac.


Doug certainly knows how to get deals done efficiently and expediently, and is right there with you every step of the way to assist with the challenges that inevitably arise between contract signing and closing. He provides extremely valuable, straightforward and objective advice. Doug is more than just a broker, he's a partner!

"Doug did a great job keeping all parties in the communication loop. He got questions answered in a timely fashion, had great suggestions, and went out of his way multiple times to facilitate the sale. He did an outstanding job overall - very easy to work with and very knowledgeable about the area. Will highly recommend him to any friends / colleagues."
- Jeff & Lisa, Colchester
A much belated but heartfelt Thank You to you and your staff that made the sale of 108 so easy-peasy! You really went Above -And- Beyond on more than one occasion and know that we appreciate it!
