Market Knowledge, Experience, and Service
"I've used Steve and Luke for the purchase and sale on six different properties in the Burlington area both rentals and primary residence. I have since relocated out of state and recently closed on a 16 unit apartment building and it made me realize how great Steve and Luke are to work with. They are significantly more organized and motivated to close the deal than what I've experienced with other agents. They are always available to answer questions and on the last two deals I had already relocated out of town so they went the extra mile to get all the details taken care of, overall a great experience, highly recommended."

"We just wanted to thank all of you for your work on the sale of the house. It was our first time through the process, we needed to move quickly, and wanted to be able to trust we were in good hands. That was definitely the case...you guys were always responsive, great advisors, and so competent in understanding the market, the city, and how to navigate. This went very well, thanks to you!"
- Sam & Emily | Palm Beach, FL
"If you’re looking to buy a house Amanda Bell is you’re girl! I started looking to buy my first home at the beginning of the year and Amanda was amazing! Being a first time homebuyer I had tons of questions and she was always available to help me and made the process very easy to understand. Took me to many showings to figure out exactly what I wanted and always had my best interest at heart. She spent many hours with me over the months until we found my dream home and always made me feel confident and like she would never give up searching for the perfect home for me! I couldn’t be happier with my first home and it’s all because of her honest hard work and dedication! Thanks so much!"
- Katlin | Vergennes, VT
"Steve and his team were simply outstanding. The service, communication, and professionalism were top notch. We could not have been more pleased. They handled everything and made what could have been a stressful time very easy. We would recommend them to anyone. Really nice, genuine, and kind people too. We are 200% satisfied."
- Alexander | Medford, MA
"We are so very pleased to have worked with Kim Corey! She led us through to an accepted contract the same day we looked at the home despite there being multiple offers. We appreciated Kim's warm and helpful style, as well as the professionalism of your agency. Thank you so much we are so happy in our new home!"
- Carol & Mike C | Essex, VT
"We can't recommend Jill Vespa and the Lipkin Audette Team enough. Jill worked with us for over 2 years to find the right home. She was always available to answer questions and easily adapted to our changing parameters. Jill was great with scheduling viewings and upfront with us on the houses we looked at. In the end, we surprised her by finding something outside the parameters we had given her. But Jill bounced right in and helped us though the whole process."
- Debra | Richmond, VT
"I couldn't have done anything pertaining to the sale of my condo without Steve and his crew! I live out of state and never had to leave the comfort of my computer. They were all attentive, knowledgeable and concerned with what I was concerned with. I could not have asked for anyone better!!"
- John | Sarasota, FL
"Kathy Hale is the absolute best! We used Kathy five years ago for the purchase of our first home and contacted her again when we were looking to purchase another. She was the perfect person to have guide us through the buying and selling process. She was able to find us our dream home - a perfect balance between what my husband and I both wanted in a home (which believe me is no easy task!). Kathy was knowledgeable, responsive, and so considerate of our busy schedule. I would recommend Kathy to anyone looking for a realtor and more. She became a part of our family and we are going to miss seeing her on a weekly basis!"
- Emily | Georgia, VT
"Steve and his team are the best in Burlington in my opinion. I have purchased and sold a number of investment properties in Burlington in the last 5 years and Steve has represented me for all of them. The most recent sale had numerous last-minute issues pop up and Steve and Luke took care of them so that I didn't have to worry. Steve and his team know the market better than anyone, they're very sharp, they're friendly, and they really do go the extra mile to make buying or selling a property as smooth as possible for their clients. Highly recommended."
- Marsh | Burlington, VT and Steamboat Springs, CO
"Many of our friends were telling us that we should try to sell our house on our own and save the cost of commission that a realtor would take. We toyed with the idea but in the end decided to let professionals do what they do best. I would not call what Steve did "taking" a commission. He and his team of Luke and Keeley EARNED every bit of that commission. Steve sold our house in 3 months. Actually, he got a contract on it in a month and a half and then proceeded to take care of permits, inspections, re-inspections, plumbing, electrical, window installation, all so that we could close by the end of the year. Anyone who knows the strange, complex laws of Burlington knows what this means. If I had taken this on myself, it never would have happened. Steve and his team know what they're doing, can predict the future and made this a really seamless, easy transaction for us. I would definitely use them again and recommend them to anyone looking to sell a property in Burlington."
- Aaron | Burlington, VT
"Steve and his team excellent in every respect throughout our home buying process. I was only able to view properties at specific times due to a relocation and the team accommodated every request. I would highly recommend Steve."
- Tim | Williston, VT
"Steve and his crew have set up 6 or 7 sales and purchases for me over the last several years. His knowledge, expertise, hard work, and attention to EVERY detail have made these transactions trouble free and profitable! He doesn't miss a thing. I hardly had to lift a finger in these transactions. I recommend him to everyone."
- John | South Burlington, VT
Steve has helped me with multiple, complicated, real estate transactions over the years. He is very easy to work with, straightforward, full of knowledge and an overall great guy. I will always use his services, well worth the money.
- Seth | Underhill, VT
"I have purchased two houses with The Lipkin Audette Team, their expertise in the local market was indispensable. They helped me negotiate a fair price and have continued to go above and beyond helping me determine fair market rents. I can't give them enough credit, I plan on using them exclusively in the future."
- Lincoln | Burlington, VT
"I was extremely impressed with Steve's expertise with not only the normal aspects of selling a home, he also helped me greatly to address a number of issues which without his assistance probably would've ended the sale. Steve worked with zoning, codes enforcement, and the fire safety to correct a number of issues in order for the buyers to remain interested in the property. In addition, he was able to line up people to remove a large amount of unwanted items from the garage, and another contractor to fix some things. I feel he really went above and beyond to help with items, and it also speaks to his resourcefulness in having the capabilities to handle complex and difficult properties. He was very responsive, and always called me right back if unavailable at the time I would call. Lastly, and most importantly, I truly feel he was able to negotiate the best possible selling price for my property. He really fought hard to secure a price that I think was fair and realistic. I would recommend Steve without hesitation. He is a consummate professional, and handled my sale masterfully."
- Keith | Westcott, MA
"Extremely knowledgeable about the housing market and the area. He was very responsive and always available. He gave excellent advice and was a great problem solver."
- Karen | Barrington, RI
"I highly recommend Steve Lipkin. His easy-going style mixed with his breadth of knowledge and attention to detail makes the process of buying or selling less stressful. Having Steve on your team is a real asset when navigating the complicated world of real estate transactions."
- Amey | Westford, VT
Meeting Needs Even from a Distance
“Aloha Steve, I do really appreciate your efforts in getting my multi-unit sold. Having recently moved out of state, I needed someone willing to do the running to get my property sold. From the beginning you were aggressive in marketing and getting potential buyers in to look and immediately generated offers. Once under contract the real work began to get buildings into compliance and satisfactory to the buyer. You remained calm and confident under setback and delay, meeting people after hours, even on Thanksgiving weekend. This being one of my most difficult sales, it was nice knowing I could rely on you to go above and beyond to get things done. I look forward to working with you again. Mahalo"
- Shawn Bedard | Hawaii
“It was with great pleasure that I contribute to your letters of testimonials for a job well done in selling my home in Bolton Valley. This was a challenging opportunity considering both the weather and political environment at Bolton but your persistence succeeded in allowing me to sell my home at full value, even though I was 1,000 miles away. Your efforts convinced me to recommend your services to my sister-in-law who informed me you were able to sell her home in just one day. Great job on both opportunities. If anyone is considering a Realtor to represent their property, they would do no wrong by engaging your services, and quite honestly have to be crazy to go with anyone else. Best of luck and thank you once again."
- Skip Ballou
"Jacob and his team were a pleasure to work with from my initial inquiry phone call to his office throughout closing. I live across the country from the property I sold through Jacob and communication was prompt the entire time. He is knowledgeable about the area and his team employed an aggressive and effective marketing campaign to sell my unique property for a competitive price in a reasonable amount of time. I would use Jacob's services again in VT and would recommend him to anybody needing an experienced and professional realtor in the area."
- Brandon | Las Vegas
Anticipating Needs and Negotiations
"We really appreciate all of your hard work in selling our Burlington multi-family property. You anticipated and solved issues before they even arose! We look forward to working with you again on the next one!"
- Jeff and Gail
"Luke helped me out at a difficult time finding a place to live. He was relentless putting in the time and effort showing me as many places as possible. His professionalism and knowledge of the market was outstanding. Luke helped me overcome some difficult obstacles and a tight budget to negotiate a great price. I look forward to working with Luke again."
"Our time on the market with you was a treat, even in this market. We always felt that your team was on top of every detail of the process and that we were in very good hands. We sincerely felt as though we were your only customer, and yet we know how truly busy you all are. It is still a mystery to us how you were able to make us feel so important and yet do such large volume business in our area. It is the perfect blend of experience and service. The initial pricing strategy with Carol and Kathy was incredibly detailed, well researched, accurate and focused. The showing and marketing process with Kathy was professional, positive and energetic. Your administrative staff who took our calls always made us smile with their genuine enthusiasm; and the closing was extremely well orchestrated and managed. You all took the weight of the world off our shoulders."
- Michael & Dina Townsend
"Thanks again Steve for all of your help in selling our house. From our very first meeting right through the closing we felt like we were dealing with a trusted advisor and a friend who was looking out for our best interests. Especially during some tense negotiations you were always cheerful and pointed us in the right direction. Thanks so much for all your help, we've already recommended you to two of our friends thinking of selling."
- Justin & Susan | Burlington
"Jacob worked with our daughter and son-in-law and found them their perfect home in Winooski and when it was our turn to find our forever home, we chose Jacob to be our buyer agent. From the time we started seriously working with Jacob, it took us only a month to sign a contract on our perfect home.
Jacob was both personable and professional whenever we met with him or spoke with him over the telephone. He always got back to us in a timely manner and never lost his sense of humor through it all. His knowledge of the area helped narrow the search for our new home. His communication skills both in dealing with us and the seller made our buying experience a pleasure. We highly recommend Jacob Smith to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a property.
- Dan & Linda | Colchester
"Steve was available to answer our questions any time. If we left a message he called as back as soon as he could. Every time we work with Steve he goes above and beyond to help us out. Thanks you!"
- Peter and Erin Dufault
“I hired Steve and Luke to sell my 3 unit rental property in Milton. I have bought and sold a lot of properties over the years and it is always hard to pay the commission, But I want you to know this is one time I do not regret having to pay the commission because they did such a fabulous job. Steve was always responsive, whether I called him or emailed him or texted him he always got back to me. He did not do things the easy way, he did them the right way and it really made a difference. If you are looking to buy or sell a home or investment property you can’t go wrong hiring Steve Lipkin.”
- Diane Lemieux | Milton, VT
"We had a great experience working with Lindsay to purchase our home. With specific criteria in a competitive market, we were probably not the easiest buyers to work with at times. Lindsay was attentive, responsive, and willing to help in any way. It was a pleasure to work with Lindsay & the Lipkin Audette Team."
- Molly & Mark | Richmond, VT
"I just wanted to express my elation despite the trials and tribulations of selling property. I hope you realize the talent and perseverance of Steve Lipkin. He is not only abreast of the forms and regulations of the world of realty, he is quick to respond and, actually answers his phone when it rings; a very unusual commodity today! He made my involvement minimal, and set the whole process in a manner of ease and facility. I normally don't “megaphone” my thanks in this fashion, but I could not remain silent on this one."
- Jack Mentes | Burlington, VT
"Steve was awesome. Very helpful. Very accessible, easy to talk to and ask questions of. He was Great!!!!"
- Ted and Linda

Our excellent buying experience was almost totally due to our interactions with Steve and to a smaller extent the offices and services of H & B."
- Rick and Danielle Vincent
"Great Communication! He made us feel like we were his top concern. I have already spread the word that Steve is a great agent."
Understanding Customers’ Needs
"We had the pleasure of working with Steve Lipkin while selling our condominium in Burlington. A client could not ask for a more professional, competent and pleasant individual with whom to work. Steve was always available no matter how trivial the issue and he always resolved our challenges with grace and speed. There is a concept in business known as Customer Delight. It defines the state of mind of a customer when his/her expectations have been exceeded. Well, with Steve Lipkin we experienced Customer Delight all the way. We highly recommend Steve and would welcome any potential clients to call us for more details, but suffice it to say that Steve Lipkin is THE BEST!!"
- Greg Winfield
"The experience I had with Luke was great. He went out of the way for me. The attention to detail was excellent, he was very helpful and listened to what I wanted. I do not regret talking to him and am grateful he was able to find me a great place. Luke not only helped me find a place but also helped me with the area and many of its attractions. I would recommend Luke to anyone."
"I just wanted to say thanks for all of your help on the Nye purchase. You were great to work with and so very helpful with all of our hurdles. You are a true 5 STAR realtor and will be referring you to our realty network so if we ever have any other clients up in your area we can refer them over to you. Thanks again!"
- Kody Gilbow | VA Mortgage Lender
