Ivy Naef Realtor®/Broker
A REALTOR since 2006 and BROKER since 2016, Ivy’s real estate career began as an Agent Assistant at Coldwell Banker Hickok & Boardman before turning her focus to work with Clients throughout Northwest Vermont. Committed to education and exceptional service, she received her Broker’s License in 2016. A resident of Ferrisburgh, horse owner and competitor in barrel racing, she developed her real estate expertise in familiar territory and has made a niche - working with Sellers and Buyers of equestrian property, small farms, and rural property. Her natural instinct is to advise Sellers on how to best position their property for sale. She is passionate about helping people, and understands horse keeping and ownership well enough to be an asset in their sale or purchase. Ivy is equally as excited about working with first-time home owners. An investment property owner herself, the idea of working with someone who is excited about their first home is "the best part of the job," she says.
When not competing in a barrel race, rodeo, trail riding, or hanging out with her family, rescue dog, Honey and cat Myrtle, you’ll find Ivy volunteering and heading up the Annual Big Change Round Up Benefit Gymkhana in New Haven or standing in as a tutor for students at local high schools.
Prior to real estate, Ivy was a high school teacher. Her teaching skills, patience, communication style, and knack for answering questions clearly have helped her excel as a REALTOR.

Ivy has helped me twice to buy and sell houses. She was polite, extremely responsive, motivated, and fun to work with both times. Ivy made the buying and selling process smooth and prompt. When I was looking for a property where I could keep horses, she helped me ask the right questions about turning an open piece of land into one with a small barn and paddocks. Ivy’s passion and dedication for helping people find their dream home really shows. I will continue to use her in the future for my selling and buying needs!

Ivy helped my wife and I buy our first home, and a few later she helped us sell it when we moved out of state. She was organized, explained every step of the buying and selling process as we went, listened to our wants and needs, and was easy to reach an communicate with. Ivy also has the confidence of an experienced agent, which is very reassuring when unexpected circumstances arise. As her clients we always felt that we had a knowledgeable advocate on our side. I would recommend Ivy to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate in Vermont.

Her insight and marketing of the homes has led to quick sales and really easy purchases. I would recommend Ivy to anyone looking at buying or selling their home with the highest confidence. Thanks for all your help Ivy!

Ivy made the home buying process so easy! I was an anxious first time home buyer, she was patient and attentive and helped us find and close on our perfect home within a few short months. We are very grateful to her for all of her care and attention. If we ever move again she will be my first stop and I would highly recommend her!
