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 is currently the developer of Farmhouse Commons, bringing 26 townhouses to the market in South Burlington and is marketing a luxury community straddling Lake Champlain's Malletts Bay in Colchester. Doug specializes in properties along Lake Champlain, the Hill Section and Downtown Burlington Investment Properties.

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." 

Giving back to the community is imperative for Doug. He is a Shelburne Lacrosse coach and past board member of Opportunities Credit Union, Sara Holbrook Center and its New North End Youth Center and has helped Coldwell Banker Hickok & Boardman with 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!
