Joan took such great care of us and our needs. There are so many facets to purchasing a home and she guided us for 18 months before we found what we proudly call home now. And she got us new appliances, service calls for utilities, AND a price cut all from the sellers! I cannot recommend her highly enough.
- Buyer, Richmond VT
Joan helped us in every step of the process. She was a wonderful advocate and did a wonderful job of negotiating. Her knowledge of the area was of paramount importance as we moved from out of state. I feel Joan was the primary reason we were able to purchase our new home. She has my highest recommendation.
- J.D., Burlington VT
Joan assisted us in selling our longtime home and buying a smaller home. In selling, she took pains in staging the house and was attentive to our schedules. When we were away, she even picked up the house herself before showing it. In our purchase, she showed infinite patience and offered wise advice throughout the process.
