As we contemplate the events of the last five months there are so many stories, anecdotes, examples, outcomes, negotiations, starts and stops, tears and laughter! But one thing stands out for us and that is the value of community.
As members of the community, you might know that in addition to strong business practices, IPJRE cares deeply about the community we serve. We volunteer at Community Suppers, we coach kids sports teams, we sit on boards of churches, hospitals, care facilities and associations and we financially support a myriad of organizations. We feel it an honor to give back!
You give back too! Our success is largely due to your support as professionals - we rely on electricians, plumbers, builders, architects, septic professionals, photographers, surveyors, attorneys and lenders, to name a few. The relationships we’ve built with you are paramount to our success, and to the success of our clients and their real estate goals.
Although we can’t list all of you, we wanted to provide just a small taste of our gratitude, along with why, here. Read on for just a few of IPJRE's local provider recommendations!
When a client has any questions about water testing and treatment, John Beauchamp of Vermont Water Treatment has proven to be a wealth of knowledge on many occasions. John always takes the time to discuss options for treatment of water quality issues, as well as explain the ins and outs of water test results, to help a buyer make decisions on what makes sense for them. ~Sarah
During a walk-through the buyer of a property discovered a leak in the boiler room, hours before closing. With a quick text to Dead Creek Plumbing and Heating, and just one hour later, Logan came to save the day! ~Courtney
Adam Ginsburg of A. Ginsburg Architects has been a wonderful resource when a buyer is looking at a home and trying to envision what to do with a space. Adam once drew up a sketch for a prospective buyer to illustrate how the home could look with a front porch, and it turned out it was just what it needed! ~Sarah
No matter how big or small the electrical job East View Electrical Services is always able to handle the project, get it done in a timely manner, and provide the detail needed on the invoice. ~Courtney
My seller-client discovered, after 17 years of owning his home, that it didn’t have a compliant septic system. Jason Barnard, of Barnard & Gervais, LLC, visited the site and had a new septic designed and permitted in record time. DeBisschop Excavating then squeezed the install into their busy schedule. This all transpired before the scheduled closing date! ~Amey
Often, people deciding to sell their large homes and move to smaller ones have the same dilemma - “what do I do with all this stuff?!” Peter Conlon of Vermont Move Management helps folks decide what to keep, what to sell and what to donate. He has helped countless numbers of downsizers prepare for their moves, and really takes the stress out of what can be a mountain of decisions. ~Beth
Many of our clients are planning for their last move. Perhaps they’re moving from a large home where they raised a family, or maybe they’re moving back to their “college town” to retire. In conjunction with real estate sales, estate planning becomes very important. On many occasions, we’ve had the benefit of working with the attorneys at Langrock, Sperry & Wool, LLP. They’ve got a knack for estate planning, and dovetailing that planning with the sale or purchase of real estate. ~Amey
We recently sold a large farm for out-of-state sellers to one of the neighboring farmers. It was somewhat complicated because of the equipment and livestock being sold along with the real estate, but thanks to Yankee Farm Credit, Deppman Law and Brennan, Punderson & Donahue, PLLC it closed without a hitch and even before the scheduled date! Everyone was thrilled with the level of diligence and professionalism exhibited in the transaction! ~Amey
Always professional and with an eye for detail, Gary Perkins of Electrical Power Solutions consistently provides timely service for electrical needs that arise from an inspection, or during preparations for a home sale. I always know that clients will be happy with Gary’s work. ~Sarah
Inspections can be such an integral part of the transaction. It’s important for both parties to get detailed information about the condition of the home. Dan Brett of Brett Inspections has, on several occasions, accommodated tight timelines and provided detailed inspection reports (usually within 24 hours of his site visit!) accompanied by photos and commentary. We appreciate Dan’s style in presenting the information as factual so the parties involved are better able to make their own judgement calls! ~Amey
You make IPJ Real Estate great. You make our community great! THANK YOU.
