About Courtney

EMAIL - Courtney@ipjrealestate.com

Long before sitting for my real estate licensure exams, I watched and learned from my mother, herself an experienced and successful Realtor. It was a natural career choice for me and I obtained my Real Estate license at the age of 19 while on spring break from college. After earning a Bachelor's degree in Economics and Small Business from the University of Vermont, I was able to devote myself full time to Real Estate. I started with a small firm in Chittenden County but soon returned to my roots in Addison County, where I spent 15 years working for a Middlebury firm with one year spent managing the office. My interest in Real Estate is both personal and professional; my husband and I have purchased and made extensive renovations to many properties. Today, we juggle five rental residences, our own home, my husband's company DeBisschop Excavating LLC, my own busy career at IPJ and our children Madysen and Ben. 

For me, Addison County is both home and heart. Living and working here for as long as I have gives me an edge as your representative. I have local connections and extensive experience in the field- all of which helps you as buyer or seller. I have built a reputation for a proactive approach and I believe that much of my success in my field has come from careful listening and genuine enthusiasm for helping you realize your goals.  I provide a "two steps ahead" advantage by combining attention to detail, savvy technical experience and creative marketing strategies and I believe that communication, responsiveness and timely follow through are all crucial elements of the relationship I build with my clients. I strive to provide each client a stress-free real estate experience...and I look forward to doing the same for you!
