Personal 

My family and I have spent more than 15 years building and landscaping our home in Sharon, VT.  Through it all we wondered at times if we shouldn't just move to a spot that was already "done." We regularly looked at available houses and land, searching our way around the market until, ultimately, we realized we were more rooted than we thought and the pleasure of turning the place into our own was worth the work and worry. Our newest challenge at home is to build our flock of Icelandic sheep.  We've got lots of fence to build and old Vermont hillside pastures to bring back to life. 

Professional

Like so many of you we have weighed the relative values of schools, short driveways, new construction, open land and walking to town, finding what works for us. Each of us must make these choices for ourselves but from experience I know that an inelligent, honest guide can help cut through the fog and quicken the route to discovery. Being that guide is my mandate here at Ratliff Properties, LLC.

My previous experience in the publishing and fashion industry took me to almost every corner of the United States.  I drove and flew hundreds of thousands of miles often asking myself, "could this be home?"    Sometimes good coffee, local radio and a bookshop seemed like it might be enough.  Ultimately though it was always a treat to come home to the Upper Valley.  There's nothing like stepping out of the car late at night after a day in in the city and seeing the black sky shot through with millions of stars.

I have held real estate licenses in both Vernont and New Hampshire since 2004 and have been a "top producer" in the area for many years.   Whether you are looking for the classic New England "big house, little house, back house, barn" or a "machine for living" I would be very happy to help.

Ratings & Reviews

A pleasure to work with. Marcus was a very patient buyers agent for a large family with very specific criteria in a low inventory inventory market. Many hours were spent with us understanding our situation until a suitable property was found. Highly recommended and respected in the community.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $2.275M in Hanover, NH.

It was a pleasure to work with Marcus from start to finish. He guided us well in the prompt sale of our home and smoothly handled the purchase of our new place. All communication both with us, the buyer of our old house, and the sellers of our new home was considerate, professional and efficient. For us timing was essential and as I sit in our new house, kids happily ensconced at their new schools, and feeling settled, I am grateful to Marcus for pulling it all off. I would highly recommend Marcus for any of your Upper Valley real estate needs!  More Less

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $575K in Norwich, VT.

I enthusiastically recommend Marcus Ratliff to anyone looking to buy or sell residential real estate in this market. I've worked with him in both contexts. He is experienced, skilled and knowledgeable in all facets of the process, and provides excellent customer service from start to finish. Marcus also has a strong sense of ethics, integrity, and fairness. What more is there to say? It's a pleasure to work with him.  More Less
