Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $300K in Norwich, VT.
Jeff Batchelder represented my wife and me on the purchase of a foreclosed property in Norwich, Vermont. Jeff expertly assisted us with the entire process, from offer through closing. His strategy for pricing our offer was perfect. Amazingly, Freddie Mac accepted our offer within three days! There were two other offers on this property and the amount and timing of our offer meant everything. After our offer was accepted, Jeff went above and beyond to make sure the property was secure and all systems were working properly as was required prior to us taking possession. Jeff had shown us several other properties before we settled on this one. He was always prompt and knowledgeable and gave us excellent advice (especially on things we had not considered before). We are very pleased with his performance and highly recommend Jeff to anyone looking to buy their next home.
Jeff is the consummate professional. He always knows what needs to be done and he goes about his job without fanfare. Buying a home when a long distance move is involved can be stressful. But not with Jeff. He checked on our house almost every day from contract to closing to ensure the heat was on during this very cold winter. He told us that we should not have to worry about this given that we were over 500 miles away. He was there for every inspection and helped us navigate the entire process. We highly recommend Jeff and will definitely call upon him for our future real estate needs.
Bought a Condo home in 2015 for approximately $275K in White River Junction, VT.
We recently interacted with Jeff Batchelder when we purchased a condo and he represented the seller.
Our transactions were positive and smooth due to Jeff's excellent communication and attention to detail. He was personable, responsive and respectful.
After having challenging past experiences with other Upper Valley realtors, we found Jeff to be 'head and shoulders' above the others we had dealt with.
Sold a home in 2013 in Deweys Mills, Norwich, VT 05001.
A few years ago, when real estate was in deep recession, Jeff advised me not to try selling my condominium, to wait. He was right. I listed the property with him in June, 2013, and it sold in two months for a reasonable price.
Jeff gave me excellent advice about how to prepare the property for sale and negotiate the selling price. He was especially knowledgeable and pleasant to work with throughout the selling process.
Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $625K in Hanover, NH.
Jeff Batchelder is a super and creative real estate professional. Our experience with him provides a great example. Jeff was representing a buyer couple that he thought would be a good fit for our home. Our house was not listed at the time but Jeff remembered that it had been on the market the previous summer. Jeff called us to see if we would be interested in selling it if his clients indeed liked it. He showed the house and his “buyers” bought it. No listings, advertising, brokers opens or multiple showings required. It was the smoothest real estate transaction we have participated in. The sale of our “unlisted home” was due to Jeff’s creativity and ability to match a home to his clients’ needs. We can’t recommend Jeff Batchelder highly enough. N & M Severs
Bought a home in 2009 in Deweys Mills, Norwich, VT 05001.
Jeff made is very easy to purchase my first home. With being a native of the area, he knows alot about the Upper Valley. I felt that he listened to what my needs were in a prroperty and my price range, he quickly came up with a list of properties that were exactly what I was looking for.
I would highly recommend Jeff to anyone interested in purchasing a property. He was
very helpful and informative. As a matter of fact, after closing the deal I asked Jeff for
some business cards that I could give to any of my friends who might need the type
of services he offers. When I spoke to the lawyer's secretary over the phone, I ex-
plained that I wasn't sure of some things and she said I was way better prepared than
most even though it was the first piece of property I had ever bought. I told her that
Jeff had written out everything for me and simplified the situation. For a first time buyer, he was able to greatly relieve my anxiety. Jeff really never tried to oversell the
property, which would have made me uncomfortable, but was able to willingly answer
all my questions. Very professional and would highly recommend to anyone. The fact that I had never met him before and would mention him over the other people I know in the business, should speak for itself.
Sold a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $400K in West Lebanon, NH.
We made a decision to move permanently to Florida instead of owning homes both in NH and Florida. We contacted Jeff because of his intimate knowlege of The Falls and his general knowlege of the housing market in the Upper Valley. He showed the house several times and, in late March, we had two interested buyers simultaneously making offers. Received our asking price and were happy with all the efforts that Jeff made on our behalf.
