Soren was very helpful orienting us to the community and different neighborhoods. He arranged multiple viewings and was able to show us many houses over a wide geographic area. His background in building was also very helpful in that he was able to provide ideas about how to fix and the cost of fixing problems with various houses that helped us decide to buy despite some concerns. The market in Montpelier is interesting in that moderately priced houses that are in good shape go quickly and we put bids on 2 houses for full price that we did not get. I felt I had to check out the new listings myself carefully every night in the event that a new house came on the market to be sure I had an early enough shot at it. Apart from that I liked Soren's low key and non pressured approach.
