Arlene is a professional. She was responsive, organized, knowledgeable and attentive to our project. We always felt that she was looking out for our best interest. Once in her hands, our property had an offer within a month and we closed in two...done. We were very happy with the whole process and highly recommend her services.
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $175K in Stratton, VT.
Arlene Palmiter was my "buyer's broker" when I purchased my home 16 years ago. My experience with Arlene was flawless, so when I recently put my house on the market, I chose Arlene to be my realtor. Arlene's knowledge of the housing market in the area, her expertise in marketing the property and her superior communication and negotiating skills set her apart from the other realtors. It's no surprise that her agency is number one in the Deerfield Valley for volume brokerage. As expected, Arlene came through for me in the sale of my home. The closing went smoothly and this perfectionist can only commend Arlene on a job well done. Arlene sets the standard by which all realtors should be judged.
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $425K in East Dover, VT.
We chose Arlene and Palmiter Realty because they had hit a grand slam for us when we sold our mother's house in 2003. Arlene did it again this time (Aug 2014) when she sold our house the day after the first showing; when the many other houses for sale in the neighborhood had not sold for years. Not only that but it sold above the asking price & for cash! As far as we are concerned Arlene & Palmiter Realty deserve the MVP Award!! She was meticulous in getting us and our house ready and closing the deal. We wouldn't go with anyone else.
Arlene worked with me for over a year to find the perfect property. She was very patient and helpful throughout the process, and was genuinely interested in finding the right property for our family. She has a deep local knowledge of Southern Vermont, both in terms of properties but also regarding contractors and other service providers. Overall it was a great experience working with her!
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $225K in West Dover, VT.
Arlene was very helpful with the search and purchase of our new home. she is knowledgeable, patient, and responsive...which is exactly what we needed. It was a pleasure working with Arlene, and she continues to be a great resource for us, always happy to provide advice and information about the region.
Arlene did a fantastic job on all aspects of this transaction. She priced the home appropriately, marketed it impressively, and sold the unit in two days - at full asking price. Her demands and expectations were reasonable and I am 100% satisfied. I am a real estate attorney and meet a fair amount of brokers - giving me a greater insight as to the competence of Arlene and to the incompetentance of others. I would highly recommend her - and I have!
I had looked at 20 properties in the Mt Snow area before I signed on with Arlene. She showed me one property and I ended up buying the very first home that I saw with her. Arlene knows the area very well and she did a great job coordinating the whole process.
Arlene Palmiter is informative and knowledgeable. I have known Arlene for many years. When I placed several properties for sale I knew immediately who would best represent my interests.
I am happy to give Arlene my highest recommendation.
Arlene represented me in the sale of my home. I always felt that she was "on my side" and understood my issues. She was helpful on everything concerning the sale and my subsequent move. My house was at the "lower end" of the market, and I never felt that Arlene and her agency gave me any less attention or service because of that. And, she found the perfect buyer!
We saw a beautiful half finished timber frame house in Wilmington online and decided to go and take a look. Arlene Palmiter of PALMITER REALTY was the listing agent and it was our first encounter with her. While we liked the house we had a few doubts as this was our first visit to this quaint Vermont town and knew very little about the area. Without any prompting, Arlene shepherd us in her car and gave us an exclusive tour of the town and its surrounding lakes! She understood instinctively that vacation-home buyers from Manhattan like ourselves were buying a lifestyle rather than just another property. That tour not only sealed the deal on our decision to eventually buy the house but really underscored to us her sensibilities of being an excellent broker.
Her professionalism and knowledge of the market pivots her at the top of the real estate industry. In the meantime, we have already purchased a second property through her firm and can only recommend her in the highest terms!
