We have used Nancy Jenkins Realty for many years. We purchased and sold several rental properties over the years. The service has always been top notch. Our most recent sale went very smoothly. As residents of Florida our "hands on" option is greatly limited. Nancy and Brian have helped us in several areas that came up in preparation for the sale. A great comfort for us - so far away. These are great people!
-Bob McKay – October 17, 2016
Peter Goldsmith was the agent that we worked with and he was awesome! We didn't think we had a shot at the house we got because it was priced about $20,000 over our max budget. After we looked at it we told Peter we liked it but couldn't afford it. He gave us great advice; he said make an offer of what you would pay, because its been on the market for a long time it may sell for much less than asking. So we did and we ended up getting the house for a price under our budget. Peter helped push the whole process along and was a great agent to have as a first time buyer. I highly recommend Nancy Jenkins and especially Peter Goldsmith
-Erik Lahr – October 13, 2016
We had been shopping for a year long distance and when we finally made our move to Vermont Patti with Nancy Jenkins real estate was at our beck and call. We could not have navigated the closing process without them.
-Katie Franco – September 21, 2016
Our experience with the Nancy Jenkins Team and Alison Barges was beyond expectations. Alison and her team were able to sell our home under the complicated circumstances of a new development and construction soon to be next to our home. Our home was to become a main intersection for construction equipment for 8 years. Many friends and neighbors suggested we sell FSBO but we decided to go with Alison because of her knowledge and friendliness she presented to us on her first visit. We really appreciated having Alison and her team when negotiations started as there were many addendums to sign. I will continue to use Alison and her team in the future and highly recommend them.
-Tammy Jadus – September 22, 2016
We received attentive customer service which showed us that you really cared about our home buying experience. We would highly recommend this agency. We had a very positive experience from start to finish. The service was warm, welcoming and prompt and we always felt like we were in good hands. Dare I say buying a home was fun?! With your agency it was!
-Joanna Thomas – September 21, 2016
Nancy Jenkins team was knowledgeable, patient and responsive throughout the entire buying process. In a fast and competitive market I feel like that gave me the edge I needed to buy the house I knew I wanted when it finally became available.
-Drew Brinckerhoff – September 21, 2016
Our long-time dream (over 30 years) has been to retire to Vermont. After visiting and vacationing in Vermont for many years with our children, we knew that this would be our "home" one day. Peter Goldsmith helped us reach our dream. We are now settled in our comfortable home in Underhill, graced in what we feel is the most beautiful setting in Vermont!
We initially reached out to Peter in October 2015, knowing little more than we would at some point be retiring from Pennsylvania to Vermont. Our timeline and specifics as to where we wished to settle, other than "the Burlington area" were very uncertain, yet Peter was eager to assist us in our search. Through our many conversations and interactions with Peter during our 7-month search, he understood the importance of the sense of community and surroundings we were looking for. With no regard to the amount of time invested, Peter educated us first-hand as to the feel of the various communities surrounding Burlington. We spent countless hours on the phone as well as traveling around with Peter as we continued our search.
Peter's knowledge of the communities and the market were indispensable in helping us locate and settle on the "perfect home", in a community which we have found to be extremely welcoming and supportive. We appreciate that Peter always had time for us, and we continually felt Peter's personal interest and commitment to helping us find our home.
We thank Peter and Nancy Jenkins for bringing us home!
-Francine and Michael Mellott – August 29, 2016
Nancy is absolutely the best realtor in Chittenden County. You always know how good someone truly is when problems arise and they deal with them professionally. She was knowledgeable, caring and dedicated to my best interests. I would highly recommend her to anyone selling or buying a house.
-Patti Pelkey – August 26, 2016
We worked with Patti Brinckerhoff, who was absolutely wonderful in assisting us with a long-distance house hunt process, with only a few short weekends to actually visit potential homes. She was great with accommodating our situation by masterfully scheduling viewings all over the region in a way that felt neither rushed nor drawn-out. We saw a wide range of properties before settling on our new home, and she was wonderful about giving us useful insights but not pushing in any particular direction. We are happily moved into the new house and couldn't be more pleased with the service we received!
-Morgan Cole – August 24, 2016
We just recently bought and sold houses with the Nancy Jenkins team. The team was great to work with, the coordinated both closings and the process went smoothly on both. As an extra bonus, they let you use their moving truck which saved us hundreds of dollars.
-Elizabeth King – August 24, 2016
Great coverage, regularly updated our photos. Got folks through the house. I was surprised that not many of their own buyers came through, but that might just be how it flowed. Good and fast updates after showings. Really good in the end game. There was a last minute disruption on the buyer's side. It suddenly went away. I believe that the Jenkins team used their muscle to make this happen. I also always felt Amanda represented our interests, that she was not just trying to get the sale done so she could collect her commission.
-Britt Cummings – August 24, 2016
An absolutely positive experience! Nancy Jenkins and her team made the difficult process of selling our parent's home from afar surprisingly simple due to their responsiveness, process expertise, and a demonstrated willingness to go above and beyond to ensure that every detail is taken care of. Her extended team of recommended contractors and service providers were all top-notch, professional, and reasonably priced, resulting in a quick turnaround on tasks necessary to get the property ready for sale. I would strongly recommend Nancy and her team to anyone who is preparing to sell their home!
-Alex Verret – August 9, 2016
This company was timely and professional in every aspect. Peter Goldsmith, the realtor I worked with was extremely good at communicating, was always willing to show me any property as soon as I informed him of ones that I was interested in looking at. I thought he was very good at pointing out both the pros and cons of each place we looked at, so I could make an informed decision. Once the offer on the place was put in and accepted, both Peter and the people in the office stayed in contact and kept me up to date on what I needed to do before the closing. Overall, I found Peter and everyone else at this company very easy to work with. They are friendly and helpful and I would highly recommend them to anyone.
-Sarah Thrall – July 27, 2016
Great people to work with! Helped us get into a brand new home customized for our needs. Always responded to e mails and phone calls very quickly. 5 out of 5 stars.
-Tiphany & Josh Lovejoy – June 29, 2016
Nancy Jenkins and her entire office are realtors against whom all other realtors should be measured. They are 11 on a scale of 1 to 10 on all the important measures: responsiveness, advocacy, process expertise, and a willingness to repeatedly go above and beyond to ensure that every detail is taken care of. Working with Nancy provided that particular pleasure that one gets from working with a professional who is at the top of their game.
-Erik Tyrrell-Knott – June 22, 2016
We love that there is a whole team of people, each of whom attended to every detail of our sale. We had previously had our place on the market for 2 years with little to no bites. With Nancy Jenkins, our listing went live on a Tuesday and by Friday - 4 days later - we had 2 signed offers in hand to choose from. The remaining process to close was quick and efficient and the team helped us with every step. We also took advantage of the free loan of the moving van which we really appreciated. Cannot say enough about them. Will recommend Nancy Jenkins to anyone and only use them for any of our future needs. Thanks!
-Denise Dean – June 22, 2016
Alison Barges from Nancy Jenkins is the best Agent I've had the pleasure of doing business with. Not only did she sell my condo in 6 days, she took the stress of the purchase and sale like it was her own home. If you need an agent please call the team at Nancy Jenkins. They are amazing and care for and love their clients!
-Michelle Thiabault – June 9, 2016
I'm not an easy grader, but the 5 star treatment is appropriate in every area. I will say that paying the commission on a transaction is painful, but I did get a lot of value in my dealings with Nancy. My purchase and sale went flawlessly. They were very attentive to my needs and answering my questions. I refer them to whoever will listen to me. The big surprise value for us was in using Nancy's list of vendors. Wow, did these people ever want to do a good job for a Nancy client. The movers, the electrician and the contractor who did work for us in our new home were OUTSTANDING. Unbelievable. All super professional, and each came in under budget. These are contractors that I will reach back out to (and I have referred the contractor more business to friends who needed the service). Nancy is incredible. Do yourself a favor and use her (and her list of preferred vendors).
-Michael Burdick – June 9, 2016
She did it again! Alison Barges of Nancy Jenkins Real Estate sold my townhouse in less than a week. In less then a week we were under contract with a full price offer! I was worried about my home inspection and Fire Marshall visit but Alison helped me with every step along the way. Thank you Alison and Nancy Jenkins Real Estate for everything you did. We look forward to working with you again.
-Rebecca Nelson – May 17, 2016
Thank you very much for the personable, responsive, and excellent service you provided in selling my home. I was very pleased with the service Nancy Jenkins provided over twelve years ago in the both the sale of my existing home at the time and the purchase of a new home to replace it. I am happy to say that this most recent transaction reflects the consistency that I have seen and maintains the trust and confidence I have in Nancy Jenkins. You are the best and will always recommend NJ.
-Bernie Gregoire – April 4, 2016
We worked with Alison Barges to purchase a townhouse in Essex. Alison understood exactly what we were looking for and within a few days we had our new home. Which we love! We would highly recommend Alison for both the selling of a home and the purchasing. She has already sold one home for us and in less than a week has our other home under contract.
-Rebecca Nelson – March 30, 2016
I met Patti from Nancy Jenkins when I called her to see a property that I saw on Zillow. Patti showed me numerous properties over the course of 9 months. Patti was awesome. She never doubted that the perfect home was out there for us. She was always willing to go that extra mile for us. Patti was so careful with every detail. We bought our home in January and are so thrilled with our choice. Patti was wonderful to work with throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Patti to help my friends and family find their perfect home. Carol in the office was also terrific in answering any questions I had. The B Team list of contractors has been so helpful. It is my go to list when I needed to hire my painter, tile installer and roofer. We are new to this area and this has been such a valuable resource for us. The workmen that are on the list have been approved by Nancy Jenkins and have proven to her they do high quality work. I have been so pleased with the work that has been done in my new home.
-Rosemary Zezulinski – March 12, 2016
Sold to a very difficult buyer, and Nancy kept her cool and always made us feel that she was looking out for our best interest, even being in close contact with us while she was on vacation.
-Jane Greenberg – February 12, 2016
We have had nothing but a great time working with Alison Barges and her team! Alison spent over a year helping us look at houses, trudging through snow and working with our crazy hours. She not only is super personable, but she's so knowledgeable. When we'd go through houses, she'd be able to point out things that might need to be repaired or were questionable. We couldn't have gone through the stress of the buying process without her and her team- we've been told we had an extremely easy go of buying from friends, and we definitely give credit to the Nancy Jenkins Team for that! All we can say is Thanks!!!
-Kirstin Van Luling – February 11, 2016
I had a great experience with Nancy Jenkins Realty. Amanda Gerlack was my agent and was very responsive to my needs. She met with me when she said she would and spent the time needed to get the job done. The house was listed in the price range I expected. The house was initially under contract within 48 hours of listing. When the initial buyer backed away we had a new buyer in a matter of days. Communication was very good throughout the process even though I was 1800 miles away. Closing went off on schedule with mo problems. I would recommend this team to anyone looking to sell a property.
-Michael Spaulding – February 4, 2016
We loved working with Alison Barges of Nancy Jenkins team. We miss hanging out with her since buying our home! Alison was super responsive and as first time homebuyers, led us through the process by keeping us well informed, explaining when we needed further explanation, and answering our questions as they popped up. We would recommend Alison and her team to anyone looking to buy a home.
-Lindsey Lathrop-Ryan – February 2, 2016
The star rating says it all. Nancy is superb! Nancy helped us sell our home and she was the agent for the seller for the house we bought. In both cases, she acted with integrity and closed the deals. I can't recommend her more highly.
-Carol Ode – December 17, 2015
My husband and I used Nancy Jenkins Real Estate to purchase our current home. We specifically worked with Patti Brinkerhoff and couldn't have asked for a better experience. She was quick to respond with any questions we had and was amazing when it came to communicating between us and the seller. For first time buyers we felt well informed and not overly stressed with the home buying process thanks to Patti. We would recommend her to anyone looking to purchase in the area.
-Ashley Wright Clark – December 11, 2015
Nancy Jenkins was incredible in helping us find our dream home. We worked with Alison and she was fantastic. We felt like her only client. It was a smooth process because of her help.
-Matt Price – December 1, 2015
Working with the Nancy Jenkins team to sell my condo and purchase my new home was wonderful! They were great at keeping me well informed as the transaction progressed and was very specific with what I needed to do and who I needed to contact by certain dates. Any questions I had were answered exceptionally fast. Nancy Jenkins' team is very professional and personable. I felt very comfortable and confident I was working with a great company throughout the entire process of purchasing my new home and selling my condo. And with a free moving truck to use, you can't go wrong!
-Stephanie Draper – December 7, 2015
I would, without reservation, recommend the Nancy Jenkins Realty Team. My sisters and I inherited a property in Vermont and live 750 miles away. Nancy, Carol Blouin, and the rest of the team were great to deal with. They kept us all informed at every step of the process (not easy from afar) and I felt they always had our best interests in mind. The sale went as well as could have been imagined considering the distance involved. You will not be disappointed when hiring Nancy and her team for your realty needs.
-Al Parker - December 3, 2015
We had a fantastic experience using Alison from Nancy Jenkins Real Estate. She was incredibly knowledgeable and was invaluable when it came to guiding us through the process. Then entire office was exceptional! They were all helpful and got back to us quickly! I honestly couldn't have imagined going through this stressful process without Alison, Carol, and the rest of the Nancy Jenkins Team!
-Hillary Boucher – December 3, 2015
Nancy Jenkins is THE best in the business. She, and her team, were responsive to every concern, need, request. Their advice on staging our condo was excellent. (It sold to the first couple to look at it--they looked one day and the next day we had a contract.) Nancy worked with us to stage our home so that it would sell and her advice made it all happen. Plus, Nancy and her team are a joy to work with. They are sincere and know how to help and present us with all information. Thank you Nancy Jenkins.
-Kay Stambler – December 2, 2015
Nancy and her firm were wonderful. We bought our new house and sold our old one with them - they were terrific on both transactions. They were totally responsive and courteous and gave us great advice - our house sold for asking price in less than two weeks, and the asking price felt really good to us. The purchase was a little harder because of difficult sellers but Alison, Nancy's daughter and our realtor, gave us insightful advice and reassurance along the way! Highly recommend.
-Betsey Allen-Pennebaker – November 12, 2015
Alison Barges makes real estate look easy! Not only did she find us an amazing house to buy, she also priced and marketed our condo for a super fast sale! During the home-shopping process, she found properties with all the features we were interested in and helped us make informed decisions. From start to finish, she was amazingly helpful and communicative. Alison is knowledgeable, organized, hard-working and fun! We loved working with her to buy and sell our homes.
-Emily Klupa – October 31, 2015
Nancy knows the Market and knows what sells. She is helpful in telling a Seller what they need to do in order to get the house sold and has a list of handymen that can get the work done quickly and professionally. Her team is very responsive and helpful. They will get the job done!
-Angela Miller – October 8, 2015
Nancy has a great deal of expertise of the local, state and national housing market. She had done a thorough market analysis by the first meeting I had with her. She helped me price my house appropriately, and we had an offer within two weeks of putting it on the market.
-Kim Martin – October 2, 2015
My experience with Nancy Jenkins from the beginning to closing was a truly phenomenal experience. Living in another state, I had the opportunity to meet with Nancy Jenkins staff (Amanda) on a weekend at my condo to discuss my goals and expectations. During that visit I found Amanda to be very professional, courteous and knowledgeable. From every email and phone call, Amanda and the team including Carola and Kelsey were on top of every single detail regarding the selling of my property all via email and phone. I am very happy to have found them and would not hesitate to utilize their services again. They were flawless in their approach in selling my property and showed the utmost in professionalism and customer service. They truly went above and beyond my expectations ! AAAA++++
-Jason Yu – September 24, 2015
Second time dealing with Nancy Jenkins team, nothing but good comes from that office and of course Nancy is top notch real estate professional. When we sold our home Nancy and her team were quick to respond to our needs and to the changing market. when we bought the next house she and the team were just a quick call away before they had the ball rolling again for us. Thank You!!!!
-Allen Yergeau – September 2, 2015
I cannot express our gratitude to Dick Elkins for the time he gave us and the number of houses we ran him through in only two days and making himself available to our daughter, on her schedule, for the house inspection. We were completely satisfied.
-Dennis Putnam – September 1, 2015
I'm currently residing overseas and wasn't able to make it to the States for the purchase. Patti was wonderful in ensuring that the entire process went without a hitch. She was most professional, yet personable, knowledgeable, accommodating, and responsive, making the whole experience as stress-free as it can possibly get under the circumstances (including a 7-hour time difference and my being a first-time buyer)! I couldn't recommend her enough. Thank you so much, Patti!!
-Valeriya Rouzanova – August 25, 2015
We bought our first house with Nancy. We bought our second house with Nancy. We downsized to a townhouse with Nancy. There is no other buyer broker we'd consider---she is professional, kind, honest and savvy.
-Kathy Stamper – August 18, 2015
Nancy was right on top of things-- knew the market and handled every aspect of the transaction with aplomb and courtesy. Her staff was also excellent, kept me well informed and made the process as easy as possible.
-Andy Leader – August 14, 2015
The team at Nancy Jenkins Real Estate was amazing, especially our agent Allison! They were extremely helpful through the entire home purchasing process. They were all very prompt in regards to answering questions and concerns. Our family would highly recommend anyone from this team. Great job and we had a great experience with them.
-Marlon Verasamy – August 5, 2015
Nancy Jenkins and her team are the absolute professionals in their field. I have bought and sold many homes and have never had service even close to theirs. The sale of my home was particularly difficult because I was out of town for the winter when a pipe froze, flooded the house and caused extensive damage. Nancy was an absolute blessing; she knows so many helpful people and she masterminded the sale even in those circumstances. She and her team are absolutely the best. Absolutely!
-Sharon Lea – July 16, 2015
Nancy and her team are the best! They are knowledgeable about many different areas in Vermont and sold our house in a unique market quickly. Their impressive expertise helped us through some bumps to get to closing and we are so thankful! The staff is responsive and helpful proving quick feedback and status throughout the whole process. Their customer service including customer appreciation days, children's gifts, usage of their moving truck all add personal touches to make moving easier for the whole family. I highly recommend Nancy and her team for your next move!
-Amy Jackman – July 14, 2015
We were so happy and satisfied with the services we got from Nancy Jenkins . Amanda was very patient, helpful and very resourceful in helping us finding our ideal home . Brian was so terrific and very knowledgeable in giving us realty advices and all the office staffs were very accommodating in the processing. Nancy Jenkins as a person was a real deal, she's very cheerful and inspiring . We will definitely recommend Nancy Jenkins Real Estate to our family and friends .We can't thank you enough for all your joint efforts in helping us towards our ideal home . We are so happy with our new home . Thanks a lot....Nancy Jenkins ...More power to you all!!!
-Joy Cummings – July 11, 2015
If you are looking for an agency to help you sell your home in an efficient, professional and timely way, we recommend Nancy Jenkins Real Estate. Nancy had our home sold in six days after putting it on the market!!! Thanks again Nancy!
-Harold and Thelma Mishkit – June 23, 2015
I've worked with Alison Barges at Nancy Jenkins multiple times over several years. She is knowledgeable, efficient, kind and doesn't ever pressure you. It always comes through crystal clear that Alison puts my best interests first, even if sometimes it means that I don't pursue a purchase and she doesn't make any money! I would never use another realtor. Alison is classy, honest and amazing at what she does.
-Christina Ensalata – June 3, 2015
I speak for Tracy as well as myself when we say it was a pleasure working with The Nancy Jenkins group. Allison work very hard to make sure that we were taken care of, right up to the very last minute. Kelsey was always very willing to allow me to use the moving van, which was such a huge help. I would highly recommend working with such a fine group and if for any reason we are ever to be in the market for another home, I would not hesitate to use you again. Thank you so much for everything!
-Adam Piche – April 30, 2015
I was extremely happy that I chose Nancy as my realtor. It was a very difficult and long process, but Nancy was always there when we needed a question answered, and there when the last-minute negotiations were going on beyond the closing. I can't recommend Nancy Jenkins and her entire team - Kelsey, Benton, Joanna too highly.
-Carole Zucker – March 26, 2015
Nancy and her team were extremely professional and very helpful in selling our home. Nancy really knows the market. I would say Nancy and her team went far and above what other realtors have done for us in the past. They were very responsive when things needed to be done at the house, especially since we were no longer living there for much of the time the home was for sale. They were always checking the house and if something needed to be done, we were quickly informed. The final negotiations were handled very smoothly and she made sure our interests were well taken care of. Overall, it was a real pleasure to deal with her personally, and her team was very professional and extremely competent. I would highly recommend her to anyone selling property in Vermont.
-Mario Falsetto – March 26, 2015
This is always stressful, but Nancy Jenkins team went out of their way to make it go as smoothly as possible. I really appreciate the help and support of the entire Nancy Jenkins team! Thank you. Also have to comment that I was floored by Amanda Gerlack and her quick response to my listing. This could not have been more impressive, as I got an excellent offer on the FIRST day of my listing. Really impressive!
-Kathleen Martin – March 15, 2014
The Nancy Jenkins team did a great job, except for the weather during my moving could have been a bit warmer.
Very pleased with it all.
-Joan Wilson – March 14, 2015
The experience that we had with the Nancy Jenkins team in selling out house on 235 Isham Circle in Williston was second-to-none! Ultimately, that means that your team of real estate professionals did an awesome job and was flawless in every way.
The process wasn't stressful and your team took care of everything making the closing go so smoothly. Alison was always there for late night calls, Carol made sure all of our closing items were taken care of, and Kelsey was very accommodating in working with us on our many truck requests.
As I told Alison today at our closing, I will refer your team all day long (already have in many cases) because from my perspective, you're the best the State of Vermont has to offer when it comes to Real Estate!
-Michael Ludwar - February 27, 2015
My wife and I were looking to buy in the Burlington area because we had just taken a new job. This was going to be our first house so we sought out recommendations and Alison Barges was the first person recommended. We could honestly not have been happier. Being from the Burlington area she knows it very well. She was always easy to reach, answered all of our numerous questions, and masterfully guided us through a the home-buying market and process. She met with us via phone before we moved to the area and went through our wants/needs and had developed a plan of action that included seeing some 25-35 homes/condos. By making herself available for numerous long days she was able to help us immediately become familiar with the area and feel comfortable with where we wanted to live. Because she thoroughly explained the process when it came to our first bid we felt comfortable with the situation. We ended up in multiple offer situation on our bid, and through Alison's local knowledge and availability we were able to win the bid and still come in below the appraisal value. I would definitely look to Alison again for future home buying or selling!
-Robert Deal & Claire Forbes – February 9, 2015
Amanda Gerlack is amazing, not only is she knowledgeable about the business but she takes her time with you and makes sure you get into exactly what is right for you. She is not pushy at all, like many other realtors who are just in it for the money, she truly cares for who she is working with. I will refer her to anyone that is looking into purchasing a home. Her and her team are truly one of a kind, thank you.
-Tracie Pandolfi - February 3, 2015
My wife and I have dealt with Nancy and her team a few times during the last 20 years. Both buying and selling. The service that we received is outstanding. The communication from the team has always been a key part for us. We like to be kept up to date. That is what The Nancy Jenkins TEAM does. Nancy has always been a great negotiator, this last time Nancy was out of town and we had the pleasure of working with Amanda. Amanda was also great. "The apple doesn't fall far from the tree" I would recommend Nancy Jenkins real estate to anybody. I do have to mention that Nancy has a outstanding office manager and her name is Carol! Carol was even emailing to us while she was on vacation. You call Carol with a question you'll have a answer in no time. Carol is the "Rock" of the team.
-Greg & Donna Robert – January 13, 2015
Our experience was terrific! Quick and complete responses. Took the worry from us. Will recommend to everyone we know! Thank you again to the whole team. Could not have asked for better.
-Roland and Fran Berard – December 30, 2014
David has expert knowledge of the hyper local market we were shopping in. We were finicky and he was patient, objective, and relentless. He always had my interests and schedule first and no question or concern was left unturned. He is low key which we liked, but could apply pressure when needed. Home buying is not easy and David sold us two (one investment) that both were perfect - that's a pretty good track record.
-Larry Sommers – December 12, 2014
Amanda Gerlack is the best realtor I've ever met! Amanda helped my sister and I sell our father's house in downtown Burlington and went beyond the call of duty to make sure things were done well. Since neither my sister or I were in the state, Amanda took on the responsibility to talk to the city, the fire marshall, the property managers, etc in order to make sure the house was sold. She kept us informed of every step that was being done and whenever I had a question or sent her an email she would respond within an hour. Her work ethic and problem solving skills are unbelievable and my only disappointment is that she doesn't live in Texas so she could help me buy a house. into purchasing a home. Her and her team are truly one of a kind, thank you.
-John Jertson - December 16, 2014
We worked with Amanda Gerlack as our primary point of contact. She was helpful, responsive, and always looking to go the extra mile to keep the sale process moving forward. In particular we had a last minute issue arise that required us finding a handyman on short notice. I was out of town and my wife was busy prepping for the move and handling the logistics of three small children. Amanda stepped up, without being asked, and got us connected with a local handyman that could come out to the house within 24 hours. Most of the handymen that I had attempted to contact didn't even respond within 24 hours. Her help here was invaluable. We were also in the unique position of being part of a job-related relocation, so there was a third party that had to be tied into all of our paperwork and negotiations. The team at Nancy Jenkins handled it without a single problem, it was a very smooth process overall.
Selling a home, starting a new job, and moving out of state are stressful things to do. Amanda and the extended team at Nancy Jenkins realty made it as worry free as possible, which was a great help. I would use them again in a heartbeat and I have recommended them to anyone I know that needs a realtor.
-Hillary & Kevin Ogg - December 11, 2014
Kelsey, Carol and Nancy were great. the second time you handled a sale so well for us. You all kept us well informed. Nancy knows how to get a deal done. we appreciate the extra care you gave us.
-Michael & Laura Ancel - November 20, 2014
Joe and I are extremely pleased with the professionalism, knowledge, support and especially the quick sale of our property on West Street in Winooski. Nancy explained so much to us before we put the house on the market to help us understand the market, the trends etc. Our only regret is that we did not go to Nancy last year when we initially put our house on the market. Nancy has a great support staff! Carol Blouin was absolutely wonderful, everyone that we worked with during this process was exceptional, we have no complaints, we would recommend and I have, Nancy to other property owners that are thinking of putting their property up for sale. It was a pleasure working with everyone at Nancy Jenkins real estate!!! -Darby Shaw - November 20, 2014
We are so happy and are now living in our dream home..THANK YOU SO MUCH Patti and Nancy and everyone involved..we are blessed beyond measure..xoxo
-Karen & Peter Newman – November 7, 2014
I've sold several houses over the years and none were handled any better than Nancy's team. We asked for help in setting the asking price & we got good market info. We got an offer right away & got good advice in negotiating the deal. We had issues with inspection & got help resolving minor issue to move to closing. Recommendation for atty to handle close--they were also professional & handled everything. No concerns about rating Nancy 5 stars.
-Jack Musgrove – November 19, 2014
I worked with Patti for my home purchase. I had some terrible things happen with my first closing attorney and the property title (later had to change to a new attorney), and she went above and beyond to help me through the process. She's very detail- and deadline-oriented, and I'd recommend her highly to anyone who is also that way.
-Marla Keene – November 19, 2014
I had lived in my old house for over 39 years. Nancy was very respectful and honest about what needed to be done to put the house on the market. I loved the fact she had a list of people to call to help with various jobs.. Nancy was great in keeping me informed as what to expect, etc. She is a great negotiator for sure... Thank you. I would certainly recommend Nancy and her team any day of the week.
-Janet Johnson – October 29, 2014
Alison Barges was an amazing advocate during my recent purchase. Alison and I started out with little to no relationship and after my purchase and her amazing efforts to advocate and listen to my families needs I would consider her a loyal friend. Alison went above and beyond, continuing after the sale to help me address issues that were not discovered during the home inspection. Alison was available to provide not only empathy but also help me to address the challenges financial and otherwise with the sellers. Alison's local expertise and insights were invaluable as she provided recommendations regarding lenders, inspectors, contractors and more. I cannot recommend Alison enough for her loyalty, expertise, and friendship.
-Nicole Morris – October 11, 2014
First of all, Patti Brinckerhoff was the very BEST!! My husband and I enjoyed working with her and trusted her opinion and information. I believe that her experience really was beneficial with buying our new HOME!!!! She overcame all obstacles and we were able to buy the home we wanted with the program we wanted!!
Being able to use the moving truck that Nancy Jenkins provided was a God Send. And, you were Very helpful, Kelsey, especially with all the rescheduling that had to be done.
I feel that it was a very positive, and learning experience, that I hope we don't have to experience again for another 100 years!! :)
-Vicky Chicoine - October 1, 2014
We worked with Alison Barges to establish the market value of our home, prepare for showing, and listing. We priced to sell, but were extremely surprised by 8 showings in 7 days, and a contract by day 10. The Nancy Jenkins Team, from photographer, to closing coordinator, are professional, courteous, and responded to our questions within hours. Our listing was prominently displayed on the various internet real estate search engines, which really helped to generate interest.
-Sue Quinn - September 30, 2014
Nancy and her team came through for us, helping us sell our home on a tight timetable for a job-related relocation out of the state of Vermont. We had many issues to deal with regarding the property and Nancy always had solid advice to offer. Her negotiating skills saved us money. She was also our realtor when we first moved to Vermont 17 years ago. We cannot say enough good things about our experiences with Nancy Jenkins--she is the very best!
-Banschbach - September 22, 2014
I hired Nancy because I knew she was one of the best. She knows the market and she proved it. Under deposit in 3 weeks. I recommend her highly. P.S. All of her TEAM is exceptional!!
-Todd E Martin - August 8, 2014
So our experience was a while ago, but we used Nancy and her team 3 times. When it comes to knowing what to do to sell a house or to get you the house you want, Nancy absolutely knows what she is doing.
We tried several different realtors in the area before coming to Nancy. We were extremely impressed with the method and process that she use to determine the right price to list a house at, how to market it, when it is time to adjust the price, and lastly negotiating the sale of the house. If you're looking for a realtor and not sure who to use, ask her to come out and take you through the process she uses and ask other realtors for how they determine these things. I've never seen a realtor that is this methodical about coming up with that magical first listing price (which can really screw things up things right from the start even if everything else is perfect). that combined with thei extremely aggressive marketing to get your listing in to the hands of as many prospective buyers as possible in as short a time as possible usually leads to a fast sale at a price that is a couple percent higher than what the others can offer.
In addition, (at least when we used her), she really had things well thougth out in terms of the services she offered, which included ih-house financing and a moving truck for loan (for free) for local moves. She and her team made things so easy that once you have used her, you become really a bit spoiled when you move away and have to use someone else!
The one thing that you need to be ready for is that she and her team move at about light speed compared t most real estate agents, so once you engage, you better be ready to get your house in basically perfect (show-ready) condition and keep it there until you've got a signed contract. That takes a lot more work than some peopel maey realize before getting into it.
-Erik P. - August 1, 2014
I couldn't be happier with my experience with Alison and your office. My house had been on the market off and on for nearly two years with no luck. I listed it with Nancy Jenkins and I had a contract in three weeks! Alison was more than wonderful through the whole process, as was the entire staff. I would not hesitate to use your office again in the future.
-Beth Shuler - July 29, 2014
Nancy has many years of experience and it shows. She does a very thorough market analysis including national and local house price trends. She priced our house accurately and it sold very quickly. She is honest, non-pressuring, and very thorough. She made many good suggestions for making our home more saleable.
-John Owen - July 16, 2015
Nancy was an enormous help with this process, starting with a review of what we needed to do to get our house ready to sell, through the negotiation process, to the final closing. And she respected our timetable. She is low-key, very knowledgeable, and thoroughly professional. We highly recommend Nancy and the services provided by her entire team. Every single one of them were exceptional.
-Ann Owen - July 16, 2014
I sold and purchased through Nancy Jenkins. Her team is exceptional. Nancy is dedicated to making the purchase/ sell experience as easy as possible for her clients. Her team supports that. Nancy Jenkins Realty is market savvy. They will be your guides and your advocates. Most importantly they listen. Your important to them. Can't say enough about how much I appreciate their efforts on my behalf. It's all good with this Nancy Jenkins Realty team.
-Minor - July 9, 2014
Wonderful experience working with David Minor at Nancy Jenkins. I had worked with a few different buying agents, and ended up going with Nancy Jenkins, because David was very helpful, friendly, and professional. I definitely recommend him, and will certainly use them in the future should I plan to Buy/Sell. They even let us borrow a moving truck to make the move from our old place, to our new place easier.
- June 20, 2014
I chose to list with Nancy Jenkins Realty due to their impeccable reputation, and I could not have made a better decision. The Nancy Jenkins team is client-centered and extremely professional. Even though they are a very busy office with many clients, they made me feel as if I was their only one! The care and service that I received from Amanda Gerlack, our "Super Agent" (a title bestowed upon her by my seven-year old son), Carol Blouin, Joanna Findley, Kelsey Webb, and Nancy Jenkins herself was second-to-none. They helped me navigate through what can be a very stressful process, and they did so with kindness, care, respect, and expertise. I could not be happier with my experience as a client of Nancy Jenkins Realty. I would buy and sell a house every year if it meant I could work with them again.
-Daniel & Laura Taylor - June 6, 2014
We worked with Alison, Carol, Kelsey, Joanna during this transaction (I am sure there were more in the background as well). The team at Nancy Jenkins was professional, attentive, honest, and simply put - excellent to work with.
Prior to listing our home, Alison worked up the best price for our home. She met us at our home and explained the reasoning for the listing price and the method used to calculate that price. It was presented perfectly. It made sense and was right on. It very thorough and well thought out. It showed the science behind coming up with that perfect listing price.
After listing, the team reached out to us, introducing themselves, explaining their role. The communication could not have been better. It was both proactive and reactive. Meaning, they reached out to us first. And, whenever there was a question on our part or something needed for the listing or sale, they were on it! The team's response was quick, complete and accurate.
Overall, I would suggest the Nancy Jenkins team to everyone. We have used them to both buy and sell. When you work with this team, you will see why they are number 1! This team knows Vermont and they know real estate. When you work with Nancy Jenkins, it is a relief knowing you have a strong team working for you keeping your needs and best interest as number one priority!
-Brian McQueen - June 4, 2014
We are foreigners and went through the process of buying a home. The Nancy Jenkins team, and especially Alison Barges were exceptionally good to find us a house in less than a week. The closing went smooth thanks to Alison and the team supporting us in any matter. We can highly recommend the Nancy Jenkins team and would go with them anytime again.em>
-Tino & Gabriele Treiber - June 3, 2014
From the first day, to the last on the sale of our home, Nancy Jenkins Team was Superior! Alison Barges answered all our questions and always got back to us in a timely manner. Benton took the most beautiful photographs that would catch the eyes of the buyers to want to come and see our home and Kelsey, Joanna and Carol managed the listing extremely well. Having access to Nancy Jenkins moving truck was an added bonus! We cannot thank this team enough for all they did, going above and beyond. Thank you to you all You were well worth having on our side!.
-James & Donna Wall - May 3, 2014
Lori Mallette was great to work with, she is very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. As first time home-buyers she took us step by step through the process, making us feel at ease, even when dealing with complicated matters such as rent-back agreements. We would definitely recommend her and Nancy Jenkins Real Estate to anybody looking for help in the future!.
-Prescott Stanton & Jackie Wheel - April 25, 2014
Nancy (and her team) are amazing and experienced professionals. It was a true pleasure working with them. Their guidance was so helpful and their sensitivity to my feelings was comforting. It was a positive experience and I would HIGHLY recommend them. I am so appreciative and grateful and I would advise anyone that is looking to sell to contact Nancy Jenkins..
-Linda Zinn - April 8, 2014
Nancy and her team sold my home using their expertise in statistics, decor, sales, negotiations, communications, construction and finances with skill, patience, compassion, respect and follow through. I highly value their services and would work with them again in a minute!
-Teri Gerbode - March 21, 2014
We had a wonderful experience with Nancy Jenkins and the whole team. Amanda was fantastic and set up times to see homes whenever we needed the time to be and anytime I sent a text or email the response was immediate. Everyone was a pleasure to work with and made it so easy for us as we were buying and selling. Even the sellers and buyers we were dealing with were fantastic. I will be telling my friends and family to choose The Nancy Jenkins team if they decide to sell or buy. You are the best. Thank you for helping us find our dream home..
-Tammy & Brian Benoit - March 11, 2014
I am very happy with Nancy Jenkins, Carol Blouin and your team. I was a realtor myself for many years and I know how much effort they put into selling my condo and I was very impressed with the way they kept in constant touch with me and provided help with getting necessary documents, work people and etc. I would recommend Nancy very highly to anyone considering selling (or buying) real estate. It is worth it to pay the commission to benefit from her experience and work ethic..
-Brigid Chick - February 26, 2014
We have worked with Nancy Jenkins and Patti Brinckerhoff on 2 occasions and have been very pleased not only with their professional manner but also with great results in finding the perfect place to live. Their office runs so efficiently and guide you through every step in the process of buying or selling. We sold our home within 2 weeks at full asking price and bought a townhome that we love so much. We are very satisfied customers!
-Dianne Davis - February 21, 2014
Nancy Jenkins and her team? In a word they're "awesome."
I recently sold a house on January 7, 2014 that had languished for six months on the market in 2012. In desperation, I turned to Nancy Jenkins Real Estate in late November 2013, for her expertise. To my great astonishment the house had a contract on it five days later!
I cannot emphasize enough how competent, careful and accommodating her staff is, from the Office Manager Carol Blouin, to Kelsey and Joanna in the front office to Benton, the jack of all trades, who does a myriad of jobs for the team.
Even on a Christmas holiday out of state, Nancy and her husband, Bryan, still had a finger on the pulse of any sales, buying or selling, for which they were responsible. I couldn't believe how hard Nancy was working even long distance. My early morning calls came in regularly just as though she was twenty minutes away in her office. She is truly amazing.
There is an expression from the movie Star Wars, 'May the force be with you.' If you need to buy or sell a home, the only 'force' you need is Nancy Jenkins and her team..
-Colette de Loeschnigg - February 20, 2014
We were so thrilled to have Alison Barges working with us to purchase our first home! The Nancy Jenkins team was able to be flexible and accommodate our needs. That was important to us, having two small children and a tricky schedule! When it came to negotiations, Alison was looking out for our best interest in all aspects of the home buying process and is very knowledgeable about properties in our area. We couldn't have asked for anything more!.
-Ashley Levine - February 19, 2014
Good communications and persistence in bringing a sale to fruition with multiple home owner association and title issues..
-Steve Knight - February 5, 2014
Nancy was very patient in allowing me time to find just the right home. There are not enough good things I can say about her expertise and skill in guiding me through the process of purchasing a new home. Thank you so much, I am very grateful.
-Susan W. - January 26, 2014
Selling a home/condo is a challenge. Sell property from 2500 miles away is an even bigger challenge. I can honestly say that the support you and your staff made it happen somehow. AMAZING! You have been and will be my #1 choice for a real estate firm.
-Ron Ward - January 18, 2014
My husband was a realtor for more than 30 years and has known Nancy professionally for all that time. When it was time to sell our home, we knew from experience she was the best choice.
-Pat Nugent - January 12, 2014
Nancy and her team were very easy to work with and very knowledgeable about the home sales environment in our area. We were anxious to sell our home quickly and were amazed at the number of showings we had immediately after listing and how quickly our house was under contract with a good offer. Nancy carefully guided us through the process of evaluating offers and making appropriate counters.
-Chris Putnam - January 12, 2014
My husband and I used Nancy Jenkins Team both in the selling and purchasing end. During the sale of our home in 2008 we worked with Alison Barges who was exceptional. The team went to work for us and in the end we sold our house for more then the asking price and had four offers to pick from! Folks it doesn't get any better then this. Because of this experience, when it came time for us to look at land to buy in VT, we once again looked to Nancy Jenkins Team! This time we worked with Amanda Gerlack. Here we once again had excellent service. We ended up purchasing 123 acres of land. Closing was quick and efficient with Amanda coordinating the team to once again deliver excellence. We hope to begin construction of our dream cabin in the next year! Thank You "Nancy Jenkins Team"!
-Diane and Paul Dufresne - January 9, 2014
We had the pleasure to work with Patti Brinkerhoff. Patti was superb. She was reliable, kind, and professional. She made sure we knew what was happening every step of the way. She definitely made our experience a pleasurable one, and we will highly recommend her to anyone we know who is looking to buy or sell a house. thank you!
-Hannah and Andrew Christiansen - January 9, 2014
Nancy Jenkins team rocks! The process of buying my condo was made easy and fun from start to finish. My agent was responsive to all of my questions and concerns. I was shown listings that matched my desires and needs. Highly recommended!
-Drew Brinckerhoff - January 8, 2014
Nancy and her team bring a wealth of experience and expertise. We were so pleased with how Amanda represented us when we bought our dream home. She helped maneuver us expertly through tricky negotiations, and was highly responsive, flexible, and dedicated through the entire process. We always felt she was looking out for our best interests, and not (like some other real estate brokers) her own.
-Pam Macauley - January 7, 2014
We cannot speak highly enough about the staff at the Nancy Jenkins Agency . Exceptionally professional , responsive , knowledgeable and sincerely interested in helping their clients find the right transaction . The advice & input we received from Patti Brinckerhoff directly contributed to a wonderful experience and the closing on our dream house . We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Patti & the Jenkins Agency.
-Jack Kelly - December 27, 2013
This is the second time that I have worked with Alison and it was just as wonderful the second time as it was the first time! She was friendly and professional. She was always available to answer questions and consult with me on next steps, etc. Carol was also a pleasure to work with. She was very organized and very prompt in getting back to me.
-Gina Mazzei - November 6, 2013
There was not one instance during the sale of our house where we didn't know we had picked the right team to market our home. The level of knowledge, experience and attention of Nancy and her entire team made the whole experience a walk in the park. One contractor that we hired to do some pre-listing maintenance in our home said he hoped we were truly ready to move because Nancy and her team "don't mess around" when it comes to selling. He wasn't kidding! This is not the first time we've gone through the process of selling or buying a home. However, it was definitely the most enjoyable!
-Jean Tharpe - November 1, 2013
It was a wonderful experience in every way dealing with Nancy Jenkins and her very capable staff. From start to finish, every detail was handled very professionally and with such ease. I would highly recommend Nancy Jenkins and it was such a pleasure doing business with her.
-Nini Crane - October 8, 2013
Alison was amazing!! She was very knowledgeable about not only the buying/selling process - but in so many other areas such as the importance of having septic tanks inspected.
She's a very skilled negotiator and offered us the perfect balance of support & encouragement throughout the entire process. Alison was excellent in communicating with us through phone, email and texting. I felt like she was always accessible to answer our questions.
We are thrilled to have had the opportunity to work with Alison and will be recommending her to our friends and family!!
-August 30, 2013
Hi, Nancy and Carol,
Just a quick note to let you know we have reached our new home in Tucson and are slowly getting unpacked and organized. We are happy to be here. :-)
We still can't get over how smoothly everything went from the first phone conversation in April with you, Carol, to the closing with you, Nancy, last Friday - and everything in between. We realize that the smoothness was due in large part to the efficiency of the Jenkins team. It is an amazing organization with wonderful, highly professional people. Thank you for all you did on our behalf. We appreciate your hard work!
With sincere thanks,
-Jan and Ken Hopper - August 1, 2013
Nancy went out of her way to make the closing happen. She's a pro. One of the best. And she does it all with a good spirit. She has the experience and the knowledge to work through the problems of a real estate deal, but also attends to what might seem the smallest of details. I am quite thankful that we had her representing us.
-Bill Drislane Attorney - June 26, 2013
Thank you for a job well done in selling the Condo within days of the listing. Your extra attention to detail in inspecting the condo to assure that it was ready for sale went beyond the expectations of the sales process.
-James Ware - June 24, 2013
I would like to endorse The Nancy Jenkins team concerning our recent sale. Without the help and assistance from Nancy and other members of her team we really don't know if we could have managed. They were always available when we needed them. Would give the a A plus rating.
-Conrad and Cheryl Wexelblatt - June 24, 2013
Very pleased with Nancy Jenkins and the complete service provided by her professional staff. Communications were always prompt and pleasant. She and her entire team made selling a pleasant and easy experience. Thank you!
-Dick Taylor - April 4, 2013
Dear Nancy I just wanted to thank you and your crew in a job well done in selling our house. After having our home on the market for over 4 years with three other real estate companies who will not be named I was playing golf with a friend and venting about the fact that my house had still not sold when he mentioned that his wife worked for Nancy Jenkins and that I should give her a call. I gave Nancy a call the next day and set up a meeting. After my meeting with Nancy and listening to her presentation I felt very comfortable and was very impressed with her knowledge of the real estate market in general and with my location after which I had no problem signing her up. During the process Nancy's team kept me informed of the status and answered all my concerns and questions.
After four years of no offers, suddenly we had two offers on the table and a bidding war and ultimately sold our house for over our asking price. The closing was very smooth with no problems and having the use of one of her moving vans for free was icing on the cake. I have no problem recommending Nancy and her team to my friends and family and wish to say that indeed Nancy Jenkins' Real Estate exceeded my expectations
-Michael Thut - February 11, 2013
I'm really happy with the way Nancy Jenkins and her team helped sell my house. With their assistance I was better able to understand the procedure with confidence. Especially appreciated was the help I received on the day of the closing. I would highly recommend the Nancy Jenkins Real Estate.
-Mariette Moreau - January 10, 2013
I had an excellent experience dealing with Nancy Jenkins Real Estate and her team. Nancy is a value-added real estate pro that reads your taste and preferences and works intelligently to get you the Home you want or sell your property at a target price. My home sold in a matter of days after it was listed. Nancy's knowledge and expertise at closing the sale, inspections, details, etc., were well cared for making my sale an easy transition. I have worked with many realtors in the past and Nancy gets the very best marks. Very personable and easy to work with--certainly top drawer!
-Mary Poremba - November 5,2012
From beginning to end, from top to bottom, we were 150% pleased with our experience of selling our property with you...ALL of you. Our property had a final contract in less than 2 months, and closed in less than 3 months, from the date of listing, for a price we had hoped for. FANTASTIC. Everyone on the Team we personally spoke or worked with, was calm, cool, and totally professional; our inquiries were always answered quickly. Such a pleasure, at an otherwise stressful time. Our profound thanks to ALL of you,
-Dave and Bonnie Potter - November 2, 2012
I wish to give you and your staff a special thank you for the recent handling of my real estate purchase in a new area for me. I have been through more than a few relocations over the years and have never experienced better attention, responsiveness and caring for my comfort, than was evidenced by your agency. I would recommend you to anyone who wants this personal attention along with professional know-how of what is important in buying a new home. Thanks again and good luck in your future endeavors.
-Mary Ann Nolan - October 4, 2012
Calling the Nancy Jenkins Team was the best decision we could have made! We worked with Alison and she was amazing!! She was very knowledgeable about not only the buying/selling process - but in so many other areas such as the importance of having septic tanks inspected. She's a very skilled negotiator and offered us the perfect balance of support & encouragement throughout the entire process. Alison was excellent in communicating with us by phone, email and texting. I felt like she was always accessible to answer our questions. We are thrilled to have had the opportunity to work with Alison & the Jenkins Team. We will be recommending her to our friends and family!! When it comes to buying and selling real estate, they won't let you down.
-Brigitte & Keith Thompson - August 31, 2012
This is the second time I have had the pleasure of working with Nancy Jenkins and her dedicated team. They provide top notch customer service and are quick to respond to all your needs. They are committed to do everything they can to make your sale go as smoothly as possible and make sure your property is priced to sell. My long distance move was extremely stressful but Nancy and her friendly team made it much easier from start to finish. I would highly recommend them for all your real estate needs.
-Patricia McCrea - July 30, 2012
Our experience with Nancy Jenkins was great. All of her team members were very positive, which is important with all the emotional and financial aspects of selling a house. Problems were easily solved. I really appreciated that. Nancy was realistic and backed up what she said with facts and figures about the current real estate market. Thank you for that. February 1 to May 18 – we showed and closed (and that was with a postponed closing date).
-Karen Hildebrand - June 26, 2012
Nancy was excellent. She was honest and told us exactly what we needed to do to sell our house. She and her team were very helpful and were always available for questions.
-Eric & Leslie Langevin - June 12, 2012
Nancy Jenkins and her wonderful team made selling our house a stress free process, even in today's market. We listed in December, and sold by March!! She was spot-on with pricing, and was able to get great results. Feedback, returning calls, advice were all a phone call away. Her recommendations for moving, banking, and more helped us to proceed to our future goal! Thank you to Nancy and her whole office :)
-Marie & Bob Baron - June 12, 2012
The Nancy Jenkins team has, once again, done an excellent job representing my interests in real estate transactions. You have sold two houses for me and helped me buy one house over the last four years. I love the team approach you take. Last fall, when I decided I was going to move out of state, I called Alison. She visited my home and walked through, giving me suggestions for cosmetic improvements that would improve the look of the house for prospective buyers. After making these improvements we were very pleased with the appearance of our home. There are many other "little" details that the Nancy Jenkins Team provides folks in the housing market that prove very valuable. In particular, Alison brought me up-to-date on the current market conditions before we listed my house this winter. That discussion was very informative and helpful in making our marketing strategy. Like I said, there are many ways that your office makes buying and selling real estate a pleasure. Thanks again for making the process as easy and smooth as possible. Oh, yes, one final note: I had Morway's Moving and Storage move my belongings to Pennsylvania on your recommendation. They were terrific, too.
-Harry Scott - June 12, 2012
I wanted to personally thank you and your team for all of your help, support and patience throughout the entire purchase process. Everyone including, Carol and Ruth, were very pleasant and easy to work with, which was a real comfort while making such a large life decision. I also wanted to thank you for referring us to Patti Brinkerhoff, we could not have asked for a more attentive, personable, professional and caring individual to help us throughout the process. We thoroughly enjoyed working with her and will undoubtedly and without reservation refer our friends and colleagues to her and your real estate team! We are very pleased with our new home and are looking forward to getting settled in, just in time for peak BBQ season! Thanks again for everybody's help in finding and closing on our new home!
-Chris Towne & Al Ramirez - June 5, 2012
You all are an incredible team of people and I couldn't have done this without all your help and support. I will highly recommend you to anyone I know looking to purchase or sell their home. Your professionalism is amazing and I greatly appreciate everything you have done for me to get to this point. My gratitude to you is endless.
-Bernadette Parker - April 20, 2012
THANK YOU for getting us the house we love so much. We're now well adjusted in this new home and gradually getting used to all the home owners responsibilities. Thanks again for all your hard work in getting us this house. We had a few friends and family come over and they absolutely loved the house.
-Anirban and Phadma Banerjee - March 5, 2012
Nancy Jenkins and her associates are a highly professional team. We live out-of-state and had to arrange all aspects of the listing and sale over the phone. They did everything that needed to be done promptly and with efficiency. All phone calls were returned and concerns alleviated. We highly recommend Nancy and her team.
-Rosemary & David Bitzer - January 18, 2012
Nancy and her team absolutely live up to their reputation. From our initial meeting to closing, I always felt that they were committed to selling my home. I was really impressed by their attention to detail and the comprehensiveness of their services. Even in a tough market, Nancy and team were able to sell my home quickly and for the price I wanted. Selling a home is a stressful undertaking but the Nancy Jenkins Team made it as painless as possible.
-Nick Perez - February 17, 2012
Alison worked constantly to sell our property in a down market. Everyone on the team provided quick, clear responses to our concerns and questions. Ruth and Carol are excellent. We definitely will recommend the Team!
-Lawrence Biggers, Elizabeth Derouchie and Craig Derouchie - February 27, 2012
This is the second time I've used the Nancy Jenkins Team for the sale of my home. The real estate market was COMPLETELY the opposite during this past sale. The Nancy Jenkins Team never gave up and the house sold. If you have a home that you think will never sell - call the Nancy Jenkins Team, you won't regret it!
-Michael E. Gates - December 2011
We appreciated all of your efforts to get the house sold quickly and are very relieved to have that completed. It was nice working with you and the rest of the team throughout the process and we will certainly refer friends your way in the future.
-Brennan & Brooke Duffy - November 1, 2011
Never through it would be so hard to sell property in VT! Your hard work and persistence made it possible! Thank you for the tremendous effort and successful sale of our VT property!!
-Barrett Gates - October 24, 2011
Alison was tireless and tenacious in the months it took to find the perfect home for our family. It's been 3 months since we moved in and we couldn't be more happy. Her knowledge of the area and relationships with other realtors were indispensible!
-Chris Mazer -October 13, 2011
I want to extend my sincere gratitude to the Nancy Jenkins Team with the sale of my home. I attempted for four months to sell on my own and Nancy and her team had me closing in two months. When my first offer (the final sale) came through, I was out-of-town for two weeks and the team was always available, responsive, patient and professional. Nancy and Bryan worked tirelessly with me through some permit issues. Ruth was great in keeping me informed with the feedback from the showings; and Carol, well, Carol was my lifeline. I came to depend on Carol through the whole process. I have made a friend for life. Nancy had sold a house for me years ago. I would not consider any other realtor and would not hesitate to recommend the Nancy Jenkins Team to anyone. Thanks again.
-Brenda Potvin - October 12, 2011
I put my house on the market because my wife and I were getting a divorce. At that point, we were communicating at times through lawyers as we negotiated the finalities of our divorce. At times the sale of our house became difficult and sketchy for this or that reason (which would not be appropriate to discuss here). Anyway, Alison Barges, the Nancy Jenkins group, stuck with us the whole way. She worked very hard and was persistent about covering each and every detail until the house was sold. I would highly recommend working with any member of the Nancy Jenkins group. They are a friendly, thorough, nice, and professional bunch. Call then when want/need to sell your house! They will do right by you! I promise.

I am so impressed with the knowledge and expertise within the Nancy Jenkins team. After working with Alison on the sale of my condo and purchase of my current home, I don't understand how anyone could do it without an agent. Alison is great at negotiating and I feel that my butt was more than covered for both transactions. She made it painless and was with me every step of the way. They are wonderful people to work with!
-October 6, 2011
Nancy and her team found me my new home, thanks Nancy it was great working with you and your team.
-Donna Mazut - October 6, 2011
Nancy and her Team were extremely helpful and knowledgeable. We Love our home! Nancy's Team found us the house we were looking for. WE COULD NOT HAVE DONE IT WITH OUT HER!!!! Thanks Nancy, You are the Best!
-Adam G - October 5, 2011
Nancy was recommended by two or our best friends and we are glad we went with her. She's thorough and brings experience to the bargaining table. Our sale was not an easy one. Nancy was able to get through the challenges when I'm sure a less experiences realtor would have given up. Love her and her professional team. Thank you!
-Jim & Darlene Never - September 28, 2011
We weren't sure what to expect when we put our home on the market in this economy. The Nancy Jenkins Team helped us every step of the way – pricing, getting an acceptable offer, and making sure we had everything needed for closing. We highly recommend them to everyone.
-Horst & Jo Ellen Preylowski - September 3, 2011
Alison Barges is the realtor who worked with me over the course of almost 2 years. We started just by talking, months before I listed with Prudential Realty Mart. I don't have enough words to describe how great it was to work with Alison from beginning to end. She led me through the entire process competently, effectively and patiently. I recommend her and the Nancy Jenkins Team without hesitation.
-Patricia Sophie Carsten - August 20, 2011
David Miner has worked with us to find a wonderful condo right where we want to be and at a price we can afford. He is a true professional...listening and understanding our situation, offering resources and advocating for us. David has stayed in constant communication with us and I can't tell you how secure we feel, knowing he is in our corner. He has a wealth of information and is respectful and personable.
-Catherine Bailey & Margaret Gilbert - August 10, 2011
I found Patti Brinkerhoff to be incredibly helpful and most professional. Working with her from a distance was no problem as she kept me well informed via phone and email. In finding my new home, Patti listened carefully to what I wanted and work diligently to find a good fit for me. I would definitely recommend the Nancy Jenkins Team to a potential buyer/seller without hesitation.
-Sharon Dettenrieder - July 31, 2011
Thank you for helping us to sell our condo quickly and to find the home of our dreams! The entire team put in many late hours just for us and we whole-heartedly appreciate it. Thanks!
-Adam Sawyer & Timiny Bergstrom - July 19, 2011
Nancy and her team were amazing! They helped sell our condo and found us our dream home. We couldn't be happier!
-Trevor & Stacey Mead - July 19, 2011
Rarely these days do you come across a professional family business. The Jenkins Team found our perfect vacation house and after the sale, they continue to offer support as we get to know the area. It's just a part of the service!
-Gary & Judith Harris - April 12, 2011
We want to say a big THANK YOU to you and your entire team; especially Amanda, Carol, Ruth and Jim, for making the sale of our home possible. We look forward to continuing our relationship with you and the team on the purchase of our next home. We will certainly refer family and friends to your agency in the future.
-Leo & Lynda Blair - April 15, 2011
After 5 Vermont property purchases, I can attest that the Nancy Jenkins Team are not just faces on the advertising. They are the smart, experienced, savy and friendly people who carry you through any real estate transaction. For real estate, this is the only number you need to know.
-Allegra Carpenter - March 28, 2011
We are still amazed at what a finely tuned team you all are! You were all so patient with all of my multiple calls and Carol did a wonderful job at the closing keeping me focused. We also really appreciated the individuals on the "B Team" list that helped us with the move. That list is such a great idea. I have become a walking ad for your realty group.
-Christie & Michael Steier - March 12, 2011
Alison is simple awesome! In a "down" market to sell my condo in a month, amazing! Nancy's entire team is a pleasure to work with. Thank you for making my out-of-state relocation so much easier, couldn't have done it without you!
-Ken Stratton - February 17, 2011
It was a pleasure working with Alison. She was professional, punctual and knowledge. I always felt informed and my questions were anticipated, thus, quickly answered. Never feeling pushed, it was very easy to narrow down my choices. Thank you, Alison for your work ethic, integrity, friendliness and professionalism. My experience was wonderful!
-Susan Smith - February 17, 2011
It's been almost a year since I closed on my condo at Highland Village and I have yet to properly thank you. David, I appreciate all the time you spent showing me many different condos. You were always willing to work around my schedule and that meant a lot to me. With your help I found the perfect place. Nancy, you have a great team! They were all so helpful and that reduced the level of stress that comes with buying a new home and moving. Many thanks to all of you.
-Nancy Garvey - February 26, 2011
We moved from Boston to Burlington in 2010 because of work. Neither my wife nor I knew anything about where to live in Burlington. We received a tip from a friend to use Nancy Jenkins. Nancy called us and said that Alison Barges (now Alison Barges Derouchie) would be able to help us. Alison was great from start to finish. She started while we were in Boston by talking to us to find out what we were looking for and sending us listings to review.
The thing is... I am not certain we knew what we were looking for. For the most part yes, we knew. But the details were not all voiced from the beginning or maybe they would change slightly. Shortly after meeting with Alison, I remember her saying something like, "I think I have somewhat of an idea of what you are looking for. Hardwood floors, no cantilever, a yard for dogs..." Alison went on with small details of an open feeling, brightness, moldings, etc. I was shocked to hear everything summarized so precisely and with such accuracy. We have worked with Realtors in the past. We've told them what we are looking for and I would wonder if they were listening or just trying to show us houses regardless of what we said we liked. Alison's concern was that we found a house we wanted to call home and would be happy with. And, in the end, we found that house. We met up with Alison a few months after moving in and she still knew what we liked. She is amazing.
This type of service seems to extend through the Nancy Jenkins group. If you purchase through Nancy Jenkins, you get perks... You get their list of people to use in any situation from plumbing, to accounting, to electricians. There is also a "Nancy Jenkins Truck" that you can borrow for no charge if you need it - I will be using it to bring home a new ladder once it warms up. And, a movie night is coming up in March. Their service extends well beyond the sale or purchase of your new home. It is no wonder they are considered the #1 Realtor in Vermont.
-Brian McQueen - January 31, 2014
We moved from out of state and knew very little about Vermont. Alison was great! She showed us the different areas of Vermont, explained the culture of Vermont and showed us many points of interest. Most impressively, Alison listened and learned what was important to our family and wanted to make certain the home we found was what we needed. Thank you to the Jenkins Team, we love our new home!
-Brian & Laurie McQueen - January 16, 2011
We had a complicated closing and if it wasn't for Nancy and Bryan being there, who knows how it would have worked out?
-Mark & Denise Aafedt - November 14, 2010
We listed and sold our land in Underhill with Nancy Jenkins agency. With the economic downturn, the mortgage meltdown, and increased State and Town regulations on growth, this sale process was extended. At no time did Nancy or her staff become discouraged. She perused each and every lead with immediate and constant follow-up and sought multiple creative ways to market our property. Her experience is truly invaluable; her approach is very professional; and her success record speaks for itself. There is only one person in Vermont to engage in your listing: Nancy Jenkins! Thank you.
-Bruce & Mardi Durgin - October 27, 2010
Our experience with the Nancy Jenkins Team was positive from the start. We were promptly connected with Alison who was attentive, knowledgeable, supportive and energetic. As first time home buyers it made a big different to work with such a talented, cohesive team that was available for all our needs. From market analysis to recommending lawyers, lenders and inspectors, no question went unanswered. The entire team was wonderful and a special thanks to Ruth for coordinating the moving truck for the big day- such a great help! You have our trust and recommendation! Many thanks.
-Laura Guilmain & Brian Cunniff - August 25, 2010
Alison Barges is a true professional! She worked very hard with us to find the right home that would meet our needs. She was always available via telephone or email and got back to us promptly when we had questions (even on weekends). We hope we never have to move again, but if we decide to, Alison Barges and The Nancy Jenkins Team will be our first call.
-Cort & Christine Johnson - August 25th, 2010
We were well informed every step of the way with Nancy's team. We have recommended Nancy for over twenty years – it's a smooth ride. Thanks!
-Joe & Angela Zagursky - August 12, 2010
Nancy personally was very attentive to my needs and her team of staff was excellent to work with and always followed up.
-Kim Fields - July 23, 2010
Nancy’s team gives your home selling experience attention to details of the market, exposure, follow up and to all the questions and concerns a seller has in today’s market. You can’t ask for a more committed team.
-Dale Minor - July 17, 2010
I love Nancy! She’s the best! She got me a great price for my Burlington condo, just as she said she would. I highly recommend her. Thanks!
-Nicole Pelletier - July 13, 2010
Each day you go to work and do your job to the best of your abilities. There are good days and long, not so good days. You all go home at the end of the day likely not realizing how your efforts can make such a difference in someone’s life. I, however, am very, very aware. With gratitude,
-Lisa, Aaron & Laura Cavazos - May 11, 2010
I experiences working with your team and a team here in Arizona. The areas are very different and require help to get through. Hands down, the Jenkins Team was much more helpful. We thank you and would recommend your team to any seller/buyer.
-Bill LaPier - March 30, 2010
I would recommend Nancy and her team to anyone looking to purchase a home, especially first time buyers like myself. We couldn’t have been in better hands. Her team was thoughtful, considerate, caring and made sure we were getting everything we needed out of our first home to start our new life as newlyweds. We definitely felt like our best interests were being looked out for.
-Bill & Sky Allen - January 12, 2010
I was referred to Alison by a friend and have enjoyed working with her though the very long process of selling my condo, finding a new home, having the deal fall through and finally finding my new house. Alison is extremely friendly and easy to work with. She is incredibly knowledgeable. Her advise was always on target and useful. Her sense of humor helped us get through some tough times. Finally, I am very grateful that she is honest and straight forward. She never misled me or played games with me. Those, and her patience, are assets that can not be taught- they are natural and speak volumes about her work and the service and work of the Nancy Jenkins Team. Thanks also to Nancy for stepping in when Alison was not available.
-Harry Scott - December 29, 2009
Just as it takes a village to raise a child, in today’s environment it takes a team to sell a house! Our team was the Jenkins Team! Each member was highly specialized coupled with unique advertising both local and internet helped close our sale. We could not have done it without Alison Barges recommendations on what a buyer will be looking for or what changes should be made. Ruth and Carol kept us abreast on buyer’s comments after each showing. We had four offers to choose from with two being over the asking price! Trust us- the Jenkins Team will help make your sale!
-Diane & Paul Dufresne - December 12, 2009
Nancy came highly recommended and she was upfront and personal throughout the sale process. In a down economy, we sold in 2 months. Nancy’s personal touch backed by experience and an efficient, professional team was their key to success.
-Lewis & Alida White
Dear Jenkins Team – Nancy, Bryan, Carol, Ruth,
I should have written to you well before I received the attached prompt. The service and support that I received from your team, from minute 1 through the closing, was amazing!
When Nancy left my house after our initial meeting she gave me her cell phone number and said that I should feel free to call her at any time and she would respond in a timely manner. I remember thinking, right, someone on her team, maybe but not her personally, how could that be possible? Well, she lived up to that guarantee, as well as every other that she laid out that first evening at my dining room table.
I quickly learned that I could rely upon and trust Nancy and her team to represent me and my best interests at all times. I commented several times during our time together that the Jenkins Team was a well oiled machine, a very friendly, highly competent, extremely hard working, efficient and dedicated team. Individually and a as a team you worked together to make the process of selling my home a positive memory, rather than some sort of nightmare.
Thank you again for everything. The next time I need a realtor you are certainly going to be “my people”.
-Judi Maynard - November 23, 2009
We had a very positive experience with Dan Claflin and the Jenkins team in finding and purchasing our first home. Dan was knowledgeable, patient and available as we worked our way through each step in the process. He looked out for us and our needs. When we signed a contract to purchase the home, it was great to know the staff was working with us to get us to closing. Thanks again.
-Tyler & Jessica Miller - November 19, 2009
The Nancy Jenkins Team was always available and responsive throughout the selling and buying process. Nancy was professional, positive, informed and a skilled negotiator. We are living in a much better situation and were able to more in a difficult market because of her efforts.
-Walt & Sue Mahany - November 14, 2009
Nancy calculated the best price, told us what to do, we did it and had a contract at our top price in 7 days! She returned every phone call, answered every questions – I was really impressed! Thank you.
-Barbara Benton - October 31, 2009
Just a note to report a truly great experience with Alison Barges. She helped us find a fantastic vacation house in North Hero. She was a pleasure to work with and represents you and Prudential exceptionally well.
We gladly recommend Nancy Jenkins to anyone considering buying or selling real estate in Vermont. Nancy is well versed in the market and the industry and her customer service is top notch. She and her team were always available to answer our questions and id an excellent job of keeping us informed throughout the process. What could have been a stressful experience turned out to be a positive one thanks to Nancy and her team.
-Marjorie Donna & Family - October 19, 2009
Nancy and her team were extremely professional as we’d expected from the glowing recommendations of friends. What pleasantly surprised us, though, was how personable the whole staff was – how each member took the time to introduce themselves, to figure out how to answer our questions and make us feel comfortable with the process. It was a pleasure to work with the Nancy Jenkins Team!
-Laurie & John Kaufman - October 12, 2009
We have bought and sold houses before, but nobody has ever facilitated the process like Nancy Jenkins and her staff. They will negotiate every aspect of the sale so when one walks into their closing there are no surprised and all you have to do is sign on the dotted line. With the economy the way it is now, if your home can sell in only 4 days, Nancy, with her persistent approach, is the one to get it done. Nancy and her team definitely made the whole transaction stress frees for us. They are first rate and a cut above the rest!
-Mr. & Mrs. Gerald R. - September 8, 2009
This is the first opportunity I have had to say THANK YOU to you and your team for the outstanding job you did with selling our house and buying the new home.
Although it was a very hectic experience from offer to close, you and Carol were right on top of everything to ensure all the I’s were dotted and T’s were crossed. I appreciated the fact that you kept in touch with me regularly, provided updates, and took the time to explain things to me.
When I set out to look for a realtor, I had heard nothing but exceptional things about the Nancy Jenkins team. This experience with you definitely lived up to that expectation and surpassed it in many ways. If the opportunity ever comes up for me to recommend a realtor to a friend or acquaintance, you can be certain I will point them in your direction!
Again, thank you very much!
-Mike & Katie Spaeder - September 4, 2009
Up-to-date. Thorough. Enormously friendly and understanding. Nancy’s staff is also thorough, helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. Thanks!
-Peggy Carey - July 10, 2009
Nancy was a great help in a very difficult market. She has an experienced team that is always available and ready to assist.
-Jerry & Helen Niedermeier - June 29, 2009
When we were looking for a realtor our lawyer and a friend who is an appraiser recommended Nancy because “she will get the job done!” Even during the harsh economic times, in one month she got the job done! The added bonus was that she had a wonderful team to support her and us.
-KC & Bob Barton - June 1, 2009
I tried to sell my mothers home for three months and had many lookers but no offers. My son and daughter-in-law recommended Nancy Jenkins as she had been instrumental in the sale of their first condo and their subsequent purchase of land for a new home. From the time I placed my mother’s home in Nancy’s hands I felt it was being handled as a priority by an exemplary sales person and someone who had my best interests at heart and within a month we had received a deposit. At closing I felt secure in the knowledge that Nancy, with many years of experience, would do an excellent job of representing me. I would encourage anyone to sell their home through Nancy Jenkins, Prudential Realty Mart.
-Carol Dean - May 2, 2009
The Jenkins Team exemplifies teamwork and customer satisfaction. They kept us informed and stayed active helping us with our house – buying it at a deal in a seller’s market and selling it in a down market. They know how to market and sell your home!
-Kurt & Holly Mueller - May 4, 2009
My husband and I were extremely pleased at how quickly our home sold during these slow economic times. We received an offer one week after listing our house. Excellent service!
-Lucie Jean - April 17, 2009
Thanks to you and your team. I so appreciate how easy you made the selling of my home. I've had multiple moves and this was by far the quickest from listing to closing. And, all of your support was invaluable given my distance. Thanks and have a happy Spring.
-Rebecca Tayler - April 6, 2009
Nancy was great to work with! Knowledgeable, responsive and professional. All folks in the office were great.
-Beth Whiting - December 30, 2008
Nancy and her staff were wonderful! She kept in close communication with me to keep me updated as to the progress of the sale. It was a complicated situation and because of her knowledge and experience she pushed it through to the end. I was comfortable and confident knowing it was in her hands.
-Dr. John Ellison - December 19, 2008
Hi Nancy, I apologize for this being a little overdue. I wanted to thank you for your kind thoughtful call on the anniversary of our new home. I very touched by the fact that you took the time out of your busy day to call. I also wanted to take this time to reiterate our heart-felt appreciation for the great experience we had with Cindy and your great staff. Through our entire process of getting into our home Cindy took what could have been a scary time and made it simply wonderful. She always answered all of questions and was extremely helpful. She goes above and beyond for her clients (past and present). I have made a few referrals to some of my friends because of the exceptional great service we received. All I hear from them is what a pleasure it is to work with Cindy. She is always helping them regardless of the day or time. Her dedication and exceptional customer service needs to be commended. She is not only a great realtor; she has become great of friend of mine. I just felt like I needed to let you know what an outstanding job Cindy does. In closing, I'd like to wish you and your family a very happy holiday season.
-Shannon Bessery - November 24, 2008
Alison was wonderful to work with- always upbeat, encouraging and had a lot of patience. We started a year and a half ago and finally everything fell into place. She was very supportive throughout.
-Barbara Graf - November 13, 2008
Our many thanks to Nancy Jenkins and her entire team. Our condo sold in short order in a down market for a reasonable price. Respect for our needs and working hard to meet those needs was exemplified every step of the way. Calls and emails were returned promptly. From start to finish Nancy and Alison made it clear they were on our side. With our decision to relocate out of state brought sincere best wishes and continued commitment to assist us in the new adventure in our lives. Nancy, you and your team are the best. Thank you!
-Jack Julie Carter - September 15, 2008
Nancy Jenkins and her team kept me well informed during the selling process while I was 1,200 miles away. Also, there was never a question that I could not ask and have answered. And, of course, Nancy and team did an exceptional job negotiating and selling the house. They are the epitome of a team and I recommend them with no reservations.
-Howard Ginsberg - September 7, 2008
This is both a thank you and a willingness to recommend you to any of your prospective clients. You persistently managed a complicated sale of property made continually more difficult by our living out of Vermont in the Midwest. You professionally and quickly handled each new problem (there were several) and you were always available with a cheerful perspective. We were very please with all of our interaction with you. In addition, the excellent services we observed could not have been possible without efficient management in your office with regard to all of our contacts. Please feel free to include our names in your list of references.
-Edward Mary Chase - September 1, 2008
We were so impressed by the service of Nancy’s team. Their dedication, availability to us and follow up was flawless. It took a while for us to sell our unique property, but they were always positive and creative and it worked!
-Tom Anderson Maggie Rogers - August 8, 2008
Thank you to everyone for all the wonderful help during the purchase of our home. A great team with great customer service!!! Thanks
-Brenda Alan Niquette - July 22, 2008
Hi Cindy, Rachel and I just wanted to thank you again for showing us our Condo. We couldn’t be happier with our purchase. Everyday we look forward to coming home and enjoying our new space. Thanks for all of you’re hard work, and diligence. We would definitely recommend you to any of our family and friends looking for a new home. The process was completely seamless, especially given the fact that we were first time homebuyers. Anybody would be lucky to encounter you as their Realtor, many thanks!!!
-Derek Lyman & Rachel Humphrey and Daisy (our puppy, woof!!!) - July 14, 2008
We really appreciate everything Nancy and her team did for us. Our house was under contract the first weekend and we felt taken care of each step of the way. From the suggestions on what we needed to do to get our house sold to the seamless closing, the Jenkins Team was working for us. We really appreciate all they did.
-Brian & Mary Krupski - July 4, 2008
Nancy’s team was awesome from start to finish. Our house went under deposit in less than 2 weeks! The teamwork approach really works. A big thank you to everyone on the Jenkins Team!
-Kurt & Jackie Pollard - May 24, 2008
Nancy and her team deserve their reputation as the best in the business. I had the pleasure of working with Nancy while I was out of state relocating for a new job. Nancy definitely advocated for me in the transaction and kept me informed all along the way. I am so glad she represented me for the sale of my home in Vermont.
-Holly Harris - May 13, 2008
You and your team are awesome, Nancy. Thanks to your solid advice we got our home market ready in a month and it sold at our asking price the first weekend on the market- in a down-sliding market. We were very pleased indeed! Plus, you provided consistent great support, making our lives easier all the way through closing. Thanks so much!!
-Alf & Ilenya Marrin - May 10, 2008
I want to thank you for all the e-mails etc, keeping me aware of the happenings during the sale and closing of my house in St. Albans, VT. I can not say enough about the efficient way you did in all getting this 'little house" sold. It only took about five months to sell and I am sure with out the way you all work together, it would not have sold so fast. Again thank you for your part in this. You did an A-1 job!
-Mona Mayo - April 24, 2008
My wife and I wanted to thank your team for the exemplary service they provided us during our search for our "dream Vermont lot." Matt spent the better part of two weekends with us, patiently showing us over thirty lots, giving us the scoop on schools and services in the area, and providing tons of useful information. He handled everything on his end for us so that we were able to complete the purchase of the lot without having to venture back up there from the DC area. Erica Smith was extremely professional, efficient, and a pleasure to work with too; her note of congratulations was very sweet and appreciated. As far as we're concerned, you're the ONLY Vermont real estate firm we'll ever do business with or recommend to anyone else wanting to relocate to your beautiful state. Thanks so much!
-John & Michele Bonbright - April 16, 2008
Nancy Jenkins was excellent to work with. Her and her team was very accommodating and efficient. In today’s market, Nancy was able to sell our home in 3 months! Thank you Nancy.
-Kendra & Jason Hibbard - April 6, 2007
We would like to thank you and your team for the bottle of Dom Perignon. We are saving it to toast our new home as soon as we move to Vermont in May. We appreciate all the support you, Bob, Erica and the rest of the team provided. We cannot say enough good things about Bob Stock. He handled our situation with professionalism and patience. We're sure you miss him on your team. We look forward to seeing you in the Burlington area.
-Bob & Ellen Annis - February 20, 2008
Alison made my first time home buying experience a very pleasant one. It was great to work with her.
-David Cooper - February 14, 2008
Nancy and her team impressed me from the very first contact. Nancy seems to drop everything to meet me within hours of my initial call, arriving with a large, carefully detailed portfolio on the current housing market, on the position of my property within the market and on the principles of a wining sales strategy. She was enthusiastic without a trace of pressuring and quick both to notice all the assets of my house and to make productive suggestions or small enhancements. Throughout the weeks that followed, I was pleased again and again by the high level of organization and coordination; the seamless teamwork; the patience, tact and personal warmth with which I was treated. Nancy, Carol, Emily, Ruth and Erica—each of them focused on one phase of the project but always in touch with each other and with me – figuratively held my hand through all the procedures and paperwork of advertising, showings and offers. Their command of the latest technology added to the efficiency and effectiveness of their work. Best of all, despite the interruptions of three major holidays, they found superb buyers in short order.
The abstractions that Nancy cited in that first meeting as part of her mission turned out to be entirely accurate: her integrity, loyalty, understanding, accountability and creativity were all elements of my experience in the selling of my property. To those attributes I would add generosity, energy, sales experience, humane instincts, strong community spirit and a terrific sense of humor. In short, I cannot praise Nancy Jenkins and her team too highly.
-Lee Thompson - March 20, 2008
Each and every member of your team was so professional and went above and beyond the call of duty. I am especially appreciative for your team's help given the fact that I live about 3,000 miles away. All the best.
-Francesca Beveridge - January 23, 2008
Thank you so much for representing me on the sale of my home. Your team was very cooperative in every way possible answering all my questions and giving me advice when I needed it. The loan of your moving truck made it so much easier and my boys certainly appreciate it. I would not hesitate to recommend you. Thank you again.
-Doris Lyman - December 27, 2007
Nancy and her team worked tirelessly on the sale of my home. They were responsive and professional throughout the whole process.
-Louise Goodrich - December 11, 2007
Nancy and her team have been extremely helpful throughout the process of selling our condo and buying our new home. Her group has been so outstanding that we have recommended them to our friends who have said they will be ready to buy a home in the spring. Thanks!
-David & Shannon Bessery - November 9, 2007
Just want to thank you for a wonderful home buying experience. Everyone we worked with in your office was great and in particular Matt was outstanding! We will be sure to recommend him in the future. Many Thanks!
-Michele Commercio & Mike Glod - October 31, 2007
Everybody on Nancy’s team was great! My wife and I were first time home buyers and we were a bit intimidated by the prospect of buying a home. Bob did a fantastic job finding properties for us to view and he was constantly checking in to see how we were doing. During the closing, Erica made sure we had all of the appropriate paperwork and Ruth helped us reserve the Nancy Jenkins truck on our moving day. And to have Nancy at the closing was great! Thank you so much!
-Joe & Jenn Kudrle - October 18, 2007
Job well done! Alison and the Team saved our move from out of state when the loan company attempted to flake out last minute! Thank you for helping us find our home. We love the neighborhood, house and Vermont.
-Jamie, Barry, Kina & Charlie Wilkins - September 30, 2007
Thank you Nancy for all your help. Thank you for helping us sell our property in no time. You are the best real estate agent for us, and your team is equally great. best regards, and thank you once again for all your help.
-Muho & Esma Bahic - September 29, 2007
We could not possibly be more pleased with the entire house-selling process provided by all of you! Yours is truly a comprehensive service. We had great confidence that your team was always working in our best interest. You may well have set a record in the sale of our house. In a “down” market, you sold the house in just 12 days and got 99.2% of the initial asking price. Does it get any better than that? We certainly are grateful for your good work.
-Patricia & Ray Harwick - August 8, 2007
Excellent service and friendly people. A great agency to use as first time home buyers.
-Adrian Tanguay & Tara Iserman - August 6, 2007
If you want to sell your home, go with the BEST – The Nancy Jenkins Team!! They cover all bases and lead you to a well qualified buyer. They take all the worry and frustration away. They give you the top advertising which includes the web, magazines, newspapers and direct mailing. The team is well informed on every issue of buying and selling business and being exceptionally friendly. They are one of the family – there to guide you and take care of you! And to celebrate with you!! Thank you Alison and The Jenkins Team!!

Thanks to Nancy Jenkins’ marketing skills, I had an offer in 36 hours! She knows how to target area trends and present unique properties.
-Pat Nilsson - June 26, 2007
My wife and I feel that Nancy Jenkins and her team are the best any person could get to sell their home for you. They are very professional in the way they do things, from the listing to the final closing and are right by your side to advise you all the way. Thank you!
-Roger & Gail Leblanc - June 27, 2007
Hi Nancy and Team,
Great job in marketing and selling my home while I was out of state. Great job!!
-Jim Bosley - May 21, 2007
We would work again with Alison Barges in an instant. She was thoughtful, polite, extremely knowledgeable about all things real estate and just a pleasure to buy a home with. This was our best real estate experience ever! And we are extremely pleased with our new home. Thanks Alison, and thanks to all The Nancy Jenkins Team!
-Ron & Sharon Bryant - May 15, 2007
We listed our house at Christmas time 2006, by New Years twenty showings occurred during the holidays. If you are serious about selling your house and want a no nonsense professional, the choice is easy, The Jenkins Team!
-Stephen & Katya Graves - May 1, 2007
We just wanted to write you a quick note to thank you for your hard work and patience in helping us find a home. Your time and effort in finding us the right place to live is much appreciated. It was a pleasure working with someone who took the time to listen to and understand what we needed. Thanks again.
-Ela Felcyn & John Dupont - March 14, 2007
Throughout the entire search for my new home, each team member who worked with me was wonderful; very friendly and very professional. I felt like I was a member of the team. I was always kept informed on the process and knew what to do and when to do it during the closing stage. Cindy Warfield is the best!
-Neale Gow - March 3, 2007
Everyone on the team was great. Bob & Erica had excellent follow up and were very thorough. It made our purchase go as smooth as possible. We would highly recommend this agency for purchasing a home.
-Mike & Beth Hammond - February 11, 2007
We both just wanted to say thank you for not just finding us a house to live in, but a home! I can already see that our home is a place we will build memories of family gatherings, friends over for dinner and our daughters play dates. Thanks to your patience and listening to what we wanted and your attention to our family’s needs we can now have all those things. I love coming home from work and walking through “my” front door.
-Mark & Sophie Westover - February 2, 2007
Anyone can sell you a house, but only the select can sell you a home. In my situation I was looking for specific needs. Cindy Warfield-Sowalskie found my ideal place to restart my life after my husband’s death. It was done with no pressure and amazing devotion. I’ve always believed that at our worst of times, angels appear. Thank you for being my angels on Earth.
-Johanna Prince - February 1, 2007
Nancy and her team are an extremely thorough, helpful and energized group of individuals. Thanks to their efforts and hard work, our house sold in 3 days! Thanks everyone!
-Deb Rothenberger - January 27, 2007
The Nancy Jenkins team at Prudential Realty Mart really does work as a team, moving the seller or buyer along in the process from signed contract to closing with each member of the team carrying out his/her function professionally and in a straight forward, pleasant manner.
-Henry & Helene Frankel - January 9, 2007
Thank you and bravo to an incredible team that made our dream come true to get onto the islands. Carol had it listed practically before the paint was dry on the remodel bedroom; Matt did an incredible job of keeping the multiple attempts and options moving forward as buyer-broker; Erica kept the process simple, concise, fluid, no worries, and Ruth kept us model.
Our only second thought is that the photograph (now that we’ve seen the rest of the images) makes the house look so good we probably should have asked a higher price. Ha! Better not let Tim get away to one of those high end magazines like New England Home, or Architectural Digest.
You guys are the best! When persons who haven’t bought or sold a home in years are passing along your reputation to us from their friend’s friends, you know you’re giving something to the community that’s bigger than just business, its dedication and sincerity.
Have a great New Year!
-Stephen and Kathy Mosman - December 22, 2006
As real estate may rise and fall, Nancy Jenkins energy and expertise is always at the top of the list. Her energy, expertise and friendliness is unmatched by any of the many realtors I have worked with. If I need to buy/sell property again, Nancy is the first person I would call and I highly recommend her to anyone buying or selling property.
-Jared Stolper - December 19, 2006
Alison rocks! She listened to all of our preferences, needs and wants and found us the perfect home.
-April and Michael Richards-Bradt - December 18, 2006
What more of an endorsement can there be than this: My house sold in three days after it was listed! Nancy and her team are on top of their game. Alison, Carol, Erica and Ruth were all quick to answer any question I had. They not only treated me as a client but as a friend! I have referred Nancy and her team to my co-workers and friends.
-Daniel Rothenberger - December 16, 2006
How do I thank thee----it’s impossible to count the ways! Without you and your “A” as well as certain members of your “B” teams, I shudder to think where I would be today. In a soft market you sold my house very quickly---it was perfect timing!
Working with you agency has been a most positive and rewarding experience. Your office is extremely organized and knowledgeable, always a smile in their voices. If a member of your team was unable to immediately answer a question, they found the answer and got back to me asap.
I wish I had just one tenth of your energy—how do you do it??? I also wish I had listened to my friend over a year ago and listed with your office then---I would be in my new home by now. But its okay, all’s well that ends well—by the look of things, I should be in my new “cottage” sometime in February 2007.
When or if the time comes to sell again, I will not hesitate to call you. And, you can be sure that your agency is the only agency that I will gladly be referring from this day forward to other prospective sellers and buyers. Thank you again for your wisdom, expertise, patience and especially your high energy level.
P.S. Thank you for the lovely Christmas ornament- I will treasure it always.
-Ida Charron - December 9, 2006
We worked with Bill Lawlor on the sale of our home and we were impressed with both he and the team at your office. Our questions were always addressed promptly and they insured the sale process was a smooth transaction; beginning to end.
-Marcel and Deb Austin - October 27, 2006
As you know, I interviewed four realtors to handle my two properties in VT. I felt each one has something to offer. My Higher Power must have stepped in when I chose your firm. You did a fantastic job and I so appreciate it. It was great working with a pure professional and I was grateful that you “kept me in the loop.” I will surely recommend The Jenkins Team to anyone buying or selling. Thanks for all you did.
-Jackie Baker - October 30, 2006
Nancy was instrumental in bringing the sale of our home to completion. She navigated through difficult negotiations and stayed focused on getting us the best deal possible. Nancy’s a true professional who brings years of expertise in real estate to assist in what can be a difficult and emotional transition. I’ve never met an agent with more integrity, who consistently acts in an honest and direct manner. Thanks Nancy!
-Katie Berk - August 20, 2006
The Jenkins Team is awesome! With their aggressive marketing, my home was sold right away! Nancy referred us to another awesome team of realtors to complete our move to North Carolina. We couldn’t have been in better hands. Between the two great teams, our move went smoothly and was uneventful and stress free! Thank you all for everything!!
-Paul & Lisa Leon - August 8, 2006
Alison, from the Nancy Jenkins Team, made us feel so comfortable and confident with our decision-making, that the process was fun and not arduous. Everything from the moving van to the closing was smooth. A big “Thanks!” goes out to everyone on the Nancy Jenkins Team!
-Chris Duca and Lindsay Bilodeau - August 2, 2006
Nancy’s knowledge and experience was invaluable in the sale of our house. Her team was very helpful and always professional. There‘s a reason why Nancy is the # 1 realtor in Vermont.
-Kerri Muir and Mike Eddy - July 10, 2006
I would like to take the time to sincerely thank you for the scholarship, it is greatly appreciated and well needed after being accepted to Castleton State College. I take great pride in everything I do and it felt unbelievable to receive your award. I will be honest the only thing I can think of to say is thank you again and again.
-Justin Hallock - July 10, 2006
Before going to Nancy, we tried to sell our home ourselves. Bad Idea. We had no luck and so we decided to have Nancy list it and it sold right away. And everyone was great to work with and very helpful. Thank you!
-Katie and Erick Barbic - July 6, 2006
Nancy’s Team, represented by Bob Stock, let us drive the process and facilitated it for us. They understood how to listen to us and the needs we had while making suggestions and recommendations. Their expertise in the legal and administrative aspect of this was enormous.
-Annika Haglund and Bjorn Norstrom - June 29, 2006
Having a vacation home build 600 miles away from our primary residence in of itself can indeed be a stressful enterprise. Ms. Patti Brinckerhoff of the Nancy Jenkins Team served as our agent from the incipient stages to the final completion. Patti always kept us on top of all the issues in a responsive, respectful, and highly professional manner and worked assiduously with the builder and his representatives in a parallel manner. Other support members of the Jenkins team also demonstrated utmost professionalism. As a result we reached closing date with a minimal amount of hassle in a smooth and seamless manner. Without hesitation I would highly recommend the Nancy Jenkins team to any of my coworkers or friends who are considering building a vacation home in Vermont.
-Theodore and Melba Maisel - June 27, 2006
Thanks, Nancy, and congratulations on your impressive achievements. I’d also like to take a moment to let you know what a terrific person Bob Stock is. My husband and I first met with him last year as we just started to look in the area for our first home. (We currently own a condo at Northshore.) Ever since our first visit with Bob, he has been wonderful. He continually keeps an eye out for us and seems to know exactly what is appealing to us—and what is not. He is patient, thorough, incredibly fast to respond, and always willing to show us a home – even when I am just “curious” about one. He is stellar and if/when Ken and I find a home in Vermont, I have no doubts it will be thanks to your team member, Bob Stock. Thank you!
-Ashley McAvey - May 4, 2006
We were first time home buyers and didn’t even know what we wanted. Matt and the Nancy Jenkins team helped us to figure it out and we could not be more pleased. We would recommend them and use them again!
-Jenny Phillips & Leonard Richer - April 13, 2006
People can claim to be number one but that does not mean that they are the best. Nancy, two days before the closing had to scramble to make sure it happened, and she did it. Thanks to her we closed on our house in Vermont and then we were able to close on the house we purchased in North Carolina. Nancy came through like she said she would. If you’re buying or selling in the state of Vermont, Nancy Jenkins is the best!!! Thank you so much for coming through. You and your team are great. Thanks again!
-Bob & Shelia Belloise - April 4, 2006
The Nancy Jenkins team was extremely professional and efficient at our purchase of our new home in Vermont. Matt was a tremendous buyer specialist that made our relocation quick and smooth in every sense of the word. Thanks again to the entire Jenkins team.
-Leland & Nataliya Knapp - April 4, 2006
Nancy and her incredible staff aren’t simply professionals, they’re just plain terrific people. Even when we aren’t actively searching, Nancy kept her eye out for us. We heard first from her when a house we’ve always loved came on the market, and now we call it home.
-Ben Truman & Jennifer Wallace-Brodeur - April 2, 2006
Although the Austins had bought 3 homes previously, this was the first one I did alone. Cindy was such a huge help, always ready to answer questions, calm down my fears, and generally be available. I thank her so much for guiding me through the process and Nancy for being at the closing, and the use of the moving van.
-Judith W. Austin - March 31, 2006
Nancy Jenkins approached the sale of our home with professionalism, a smile, and a thorough understanding of the market. Her amazing support team exceeded expectations on-time, every time and made us feel like family. Despite being in the middle of the holiday season, our home sold at full price in one week! And, Nancy introduced us to a broker at our new location who found us the perfect home in our price range the first day! It just doesn’t get any better than that! Kudos to all!
-Gail & Joe Hogan - January 28, 2006
Nancy and her Team helped us when we first moved to Burlington six years ago and we were very happy. And then, like fine wine, they only got better. When we upgraded to a new house, they helped us make a smooth and seamless transition. We would recommend her and her Team to anyone moving to Vermont.
-Linda & Kim Glenn - December 16, 2005
We had the pleasure of dealing with the Jenkins Team twice in 12 months. The service and attention given by Bill Lawlor of Nancy’s Team was extremely appreciative given the stress of relocating back to Vermont. He and the entire Team are consummate professionals and we recommend them to anyone we know selling or purchasing a home.
