Ray managed our property for over four years, finding renters and dealing with repairs and emergencies. He was always there for us and had to deal with some difficult situations. He always responded quickly and well, kept us informed and solved the problem. I would highly recommend him.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in Sudbury, VT.

I was trying to find my dream "cabin in Vermont" and found a few that looked promising. My son and I drove to Vermont and met Ray at the cabin last January of 2014. Having never bought a house from anyone other than family, I was a little nervous about the whole process. He was very patient with me, answered all my questions, and set my mind at ease. I felt no pressure whatsoever to commit at the time as. On the way home, my son insisted that I call Ray and make an offer -which I did and within 24 hours later, Ray had contacted the seller and let me know that they had accepted my offer. I thought this was great and that it would be smooth sailing! How wrong I was!! After the home inspection, there were some major safety concerns which Ray and the seller's agent worked out to my satisfaction. Honestly, I wanted the cabin so I was willing to be a little more giving than Ray would allow me to be. There were other problems along the way, the closing date was postponed at least 4 times, and even when we finally went to closing there was an issue with the newly installed septic system. Ray and I even had to drive to the cabin during the closing to meet with the person who installed the system. BUT in the end, after a very long drawn out process, I owned my dream cabin. Ray was my adviser, my advocate, and proactively worked for many months on my behalf to get me a fair deal and not let the sellers take advantage of my interests. I wish I knew of other friends who were looking in the area because I would whole-heartedly recommend Ray to them if they were looking to buy a house in Vermont. He is an amazing real estate agent and such an honest, hard working professional but most of all, he is wonderful person and I am so glad that I had a chance to work with him.  More Less

Found a tenant for a Single Family home in Middlebury, VT.

Four years ago we had to leave our house behind when we moved from Vermont. Hoping we might be able to rent it, we contacted Ray Fortier who immediately set us at ease, finding the perfect tenants for the place. Its difficult dealing with a property from 3000 miles away and, although Ray was just our rental agent, he cheerfully stepped in when needed to refer contractors for repairs or to deal with the tenants. Finally, this year we had an opportunity to sell the house and Ray stepped in more as a friend than an agent, making sure the deal went smoothly. We can't say enough about Ray's expertise, knowledge and friendliness.  More Less
