Irene Poole, Vermont Realtor

Irene Poole


After living in many parts of the country, Irene settled in Vermont in the 1990s, attracted by the green, wild, and mountainous landscape. Even before becoming a real estate agent, Irene had a fascination with property, especially houses that needed work.

Irene decided to combine her passion for helping people with her interest in real estate and joined the Chris von Trapp Team. Chris, a fellow Addison County resident and Realtor®, brings over 30 years of experience in residential homes, luxury estates, investment property, land, and new construction.

Because of Irene's diverse work history (massage therapist, assistant judge, mediator, non-profit director) she is comfortable working with a wide range of buyers and sellers. When not working, Irene is a volunteer Emergency Medical Technician and takes long walks on the roads and trails near her home in Ripton.


Irene was a recommendation from a good friend who is a Realtor. Irene helped us navigate the process quickly and efficiently. We talked through our requirements and budget and fell in love with the first home we saw. The house had competing offers and Irene helped us secure the winning offer. Irene went above & beyond.
- P.D.
Irene was phenomenal! As first-time home buyers in the current market, buying a house was stressful. Irene walked us through each step, advocated for us, connected us to local resources, and helped us through an intense 6-week process. We can’t recommend her highly enough.
- S.A.K.
When we first met Irene, she had a positive attitude that continued throughout. She listened to what we wanted & our time frame to move out of state. She walked us through selling our home, communicated with our agent out-of-state, & stayed involved to the end. If you're looking to buy or sell, you won't be disappointed in Irene
