Kieran T. Donnelly - REALTOR®


Recognized for his professionalism and best-in-class commitment to real estate by both his clients and the industry, Kieran brings a deep background in marketing to his role as Realtor. With a passion for education, Kieran is committed to serving his clients by staying ahead of the latest trends in real estate.

After growing up outside New York City and spending several years after school working in Boston, Kieran decided in 1992 Vermont was a place he would like to call home. After moving to Vermont, Kieran worked at IBM for nine years, where he marketed the technology company's ability to manufacture world-class computer chips. His job at IBM took him across the United States and beyond as he marketed IBM's capabilities to companies such as Apple, Sony and Qualcomm. 

While at IBM, Kieran earned his Master of Science in Business Administration from St. Michael's College, a program that stresses leadership, administration and management skills. After leaving IBM, Kieran worked at what is now GE Healthcare in the Radiology Division, where he marketed the company's software offering. Kieran decided to transfer his marketing skills to real estate and in 2003, Kieran joined Coldwell Banker Hickok & Boardman Realty, where he quickly became a valued member of the agency's team.

Testimonials

Kieran is nothing less than great. He managed the sale of our house effectively through targeted advertising in various media and negotiated the best offer from the many we received. Kieran is a true professional in what he does and the best Realtor we have worked with in our many moves.
- M.S & C.M., Williston
There were 5+ points in this transaction where it should have fallen apart. Permitting issues, twists and turns with insurance, financing. He was tireless and wildly successful in minimizing and eliminating each and every risk - managing the timeline, protecting our deposit, protecting us from ourselves - an unbelievably skilled professional. I learned things. I was initially a little skeptical of the need to have a buying agent at all, as we have bought two homes prior to this one with no representation on either the buy or sell side. Oh how I was mistaken. Those were easy transactions with known parties and many years ago, For this property, the market conditions were (still are) extremely challenging for buyers, in particular Burlington, and compounded again by the extreme uniqueness of the property. It is arguable that this is the most coveted street (and certainly the highest priced), in the most expensive city in Vermont. The challenge of getting our offer selected when competing with numerous offers, some cash, and many above asking was extreme. Our offer had to come together quickly, and Kieran's counsel on the structure of the offer, down to finite detail on the style of proposed financing, nuances of the escalation clause, proposed time to close were 100% absolutely invaluable. Getting a house without a cash offer in this market alone was an accomplishment, on that street, I'm not sure another agent would have even accepted us as a client, I don't think any others could have pulled it off. Unreal skill. What's more, I don't think we overpaid by a single penny. Kieran got us into that house 10 times between the acceptance of the offer and the close so we could bring architects and contractors through. Incredibly accommodating. His knowledge of the market, working relationships with the insurance & mortgage broker were absolutely invaluable. It is our dream home. Kieran made it happen, I doubt another agent could have. We will be forever grateful
