Larry Michaels Broker / Realtor
Larry Michaels is a knowledgeable, passionate, and detailed oriented REALTOR with extensive background in property management, construction and education. Formerly the COO for a Chittenden County based development and property management firm; Larry negotiated the purchase of commercial land deals, and oversaw residential neighborhood development, and leasing activities. His ability to negotiate and bring projects from idea through the municipal planning process, construction, and occupancy is testament to his “can do” anything is possible spirit. With over 15 years of real estate experience in Vermont and as a real estate investor himself, Larry enjoys working closely with his clients navigating the unique and sometimes challenging aspects of buying and selling homes and land. Larry sees his role as the hands-on facilitator whose goal is to ensure his clients reach the closing table and walk away pleased with the result. Larry’s hands-on approach is nothing new. While living in Alaska, Larry taught education courses at the University of Alaska Anchorage in both experiential learning and outdoor adventure. These courses brought instructor and student into the outdoors for day, weekend, and weeklong adventures in the Alaska’s backcountry. From this experience Larry was asked to teach for both Outward Bound and the National Outdoor Leadership School. Following these teaching experiences Larry moved to Vermont in 2000 to be closer to family and friends. Although Larry no longer teaches students directly he believes we can all learn from each other and therefore as a real estate agent Larry believes with guidance, and a little patience thrown in, all of his clients will accomplish their goals. Larry enjoys spending time with his family exploring Vermont by hiking, bicycling, and most recently sailing.

This was our first experience buying land and building so we went into this unsure of what to expect and how to proceed with each step. Larry made this whole experience a joy. His service exceeded our expectations. He was thoughtful and a pleasure to deal with. We will for sure use Larry again in the future. Thanks Larry!

We contacted Larry regarding the sale of our 2 rental condos. We had sale contracts for both within a week and completed both sales in less than a month. Larry managed showings, inspectors and purchasers respecting the privacy of all concerned. We were fully satisfied with Larry's professional management of the process.
