Home Valuation Experts

In September, five team members at Green Light Real Estate completed a day long training on calculating market values for real estate. Which means that when you really want to know how much your house is worth, you can get the best advice from a local, trained, real estate professional. Or, you know, you could trust Zillow (which recently couldn’t tell the difference between Chelsea and Northfield. Just saying.)

Congratulations go to Hannah Dawson, Lindsay Ericson, Kylie Klopchin, Lauren Gould, and Ray Mikus for completing the training. And then yes, there were celebratory cocktails!

 

Fun Fact:

People Are Talking About Green Light Real Estate

Green Light Real Estate focuses on making a complicated and stressful process manageable, and dare I say...enjoyable? It doesn’t matter whether we’re helping someone buy or sell a $95,000 house or a $595,000 house. Here’s what some people have said about us recently:

 

 Lindsay Ericson

"Lindsay was absolutely amazing, very honest and helpful. She works around you, and makes the stressful buying process 100 times better. I will always go through her." (Five Star Review, Kyra in Northfield)

 

  Hannah Dawson

"Hannah helped us navigate and better understand the Washington County market.  She is very familiar with this area.  At each walk she would actively point out and describe issues or bonuses with different building systems.  She also was in tune with tax rebates and other financial assistance  programs that are available to many homebuyers in the state.  She is easygoing and a pleasure to deal with on a personal level.  Most importantly she really seems to know her stuff!  Would recommend to others...especially younger homebuyers in the area looking for a “millennial” perspective on the current housing market but also to anyone and everyone looking for a good home buying experience.  Thank you Hannah." (Five Star Review, Montpelier)

 

 Lauren Gould

"Lauren was great and always kept us in the loop! She was very professional and quick to respond to any questions we had during the home selling process. Easy sale from start to finish!" (Five Star Review, Barre)
