Why Work With Us?
Here's what our satisfied customers are saying about us:
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!

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.

We just sold our house with the Lipkin Audette team, and I would highly recommend them! They were very professional throughout the process, and actively marketed our home until it sold. The feedback they collected and fed to us from the early showings helped us position the house for a successful sale, and once we had made a few adjustments per the feedback, poof the house was sold! And it was interest from an open house run by their team that put us over the goal line in terms of getting an offer. From that point forward, they were good and trusted advisers as we went through the negotiation process and continued to drive the sale process hard right up to and through the closing. Closing on Dec 28th was no small feat also, and it provided a huge tax advantage for us versus closing in the following year.
People always say things like "save money and sell it yourself", but we know from this experience that we'd probably have an empty and unsold house this winter if we'd gone that route. With Carol Audette, Kim Corey and Dawn Harvey's help, we're happily paying one mortgage, not two, and we are very confident that we got the best price for our home. Count us in the extremely satisfied bucket. You can't ask more from a realtor!!!

"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."

I worked with Jill Vespa from the Lipkin Audette Team. In short. Awesome, if you can, work with Jill and the team. As a first time home buyer Jill took the time to walk me through every step of the process. She listened to my needs and wants throughout the process. She provided sound advice and feedback throughout. Jill was always available to talk. She made the home touring process a breeze. The stress I was feeling about having to do negotiation was completely negated by Jill's guidance and owning of the process. Jill also went above and beyond to connect me with other local business I required the services of throughout the hunting, purchasing, and even after purchase process. The rest of the team at Lipkin was also helpful throughout the process. I can not imagine the entire process going any more smoothly or pain free. It was a joy.

Kim Corey is amazing! I heartily recommend her to everyone. She is extremely knowledgeable, patient, and sincerely wants to find you the perfect place. Stop looking and work with Kim! You'll be thankful you did.

Amanda Bell was the buyer's realtor for a home that we just sold. We did not use a broker to sell the home and Amanda was honest, helpful, and so lovely to work with. I cannot recommend her highly enough. She was also very professional, keeping the best interest of her client in the forefront at all times. But she did this without ever making me feel like I was under attack or like she was trying to take advantage of me or the situation. Without Amanda, we would never have been able to close on time. Closing quickly was important to her client and it was my goal as well. She made it happen and I couldn't have kept up without her. She has a fun, modern way about her that makes it more relaxing to work with her than many realtors. Zero drama, all the knowledge, quick and concise, solution oriented, and a committment to professionalism. I'm a fan!

We started our property search over a year ago with a long list of requirements for our first house purchase. Jacob Smith and his team were so patient and helpful during the long search, and when we finally found a home that checked off all the boxes, Jacob stepped up to bat for us every step of the way. He helped us put together offers on holiday weekends, formulate desperate response letters at 10 PM, met us for house showings early on weekends, and helped us through the hectic process of trying to buy a house in the Burlington market - all with a smile even as we apologized for putting him through all this. With the pace of the market and the number of steps involved, Jacob was a godsend helping us through the process and we can't speak more highly of him. We'll definitely send folks his way!

"Cindy was everything we wanted in an agent. Being new in the area, we felt as if she took us under her wing. She was very honest, fast, and knowledgeable about the process of buying a home. She was a real pleasure to work with."

"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."
