Why Work With Us?

Here's what our satisfied customers are saying about us:

I dealt with Sue Aldrich for a good portion of 2017 as she represented the sale of my home in Montpelier.  From the initial listing through the sale and closing, Sue far exceeded my expectations of the scope of her obligations by not only advertising and showing the property in an exemplary manner, but she also performed numerous functions that I believe were beyond the scope of the listing agreement.  For example, she arranged access for inspections and repairs for which I was not able to be present.  Additionally, Sue made it a point to be present herself or to have another representative from her office to be present for every showing of the property, due to the presence of an alarm system.

I feel comfortable in recommending her services to anyone seeking to buy or sell a property in her market area.

You are truly the best real estate agent we/I have worked with...incredibly knowledgeable, understanding, accommodating, etc.  Thank you!

Brian and I were so fortunate to have the opportunity to work with Kathy Dawson in the search for our next home.  Kathy quickly tuned in to our energy level.  We were on the fence about whether we were ready to move or not and had been thinking about one property for quite a while.  Kathy found comparable properties for us to look at and was wonderfully non-aggressive about our response rate.  When a property that we had looked at had a significant price change Kathy contact us immediately and we were excited to make an offer at that time.  Kathy’s quick response made it possible to purchase our new home that was suddenly seeing a lot of interest due to the price change.  The realtor that we had worked with several times retired last year and we were hesitant to work with just one agent, thinking we would just call the listing agent on any property we were interested in.  Meeting Kathy Dawson saved us a lot of footsteps, kept the closing process as seamless as possible, and was an absolute delight to work with.  As well seasoned buyers and sellers of real estate, we can’t recommend Kathy highly. 


When I asked a local realtor to show me a house in the next county, I was referred to Kathy as someone who knew the area better.  She was terrific.  She was willing to travel to any town (either county) to see a house or land and arranged her schedule to match mine and her other clients, so we all got to see houses we were interested in.

It did not take long for her to understand what I needed and wanted in a new home; we could visit a place and come out with the same comments about whether it was a "definite possibility" or "not me."

When it came to inspection, the closing, and other mindboggling aspects of buying my house, she was a calm, knowledgeable, invaluable aid in helping me understand the terminology and legalities.  And thank goodness for her great sense of humor.

I got not only a new home but a new friend.


I wanted to share my experience with Kathy Dawson. I was a first time home buyer and really had no idea where to begin. Kathy helped me find the perfect home. She was patient, kind, answered all of my (silly) questions, and worked closely with me from start to finish. I was picky - Kathy understood my need and wants and searched high and low for the perfect home! She worked at all hours of day and was happy to meet me at any time, including weekends. She made the process seem so easy! Even after we found a house for me, Kathy has been great at keeping in touch and forming a friendship. 

I would certainly recommend Kathy and Coldwell Bankers to anyone looking to buy or sell a house. 


My partner, Susan, and I hired Janel Johnson to help us find a home in 2010. She showed us a number of homes but we were unable to sell our home in Michigan and had to put off buying. Later, when we did sell our home, Janel helped us again but we were still not able to get financing. When we came back to her again about 6 months ago, she did not hesitate to work with us and found us some great homes to look at. She finally found us a home which we love and bought a few months ago. Janel connected us with lenders, attorneys and inspectors, all of whom were very professional. I used to do Real Estate myself, and was impressed with her integrity, knowledge and service.

Sue worked with our family to sell our house 2 years ago. She was always available to us and would call to check in frequently. Capable, friendly and always willing to go the extra mile for us...we'd work with Sue again whenever the need arises.

Sue is a real estate agent with the rare ability to listen and to find what you are looking for. In our search for a house in Vermont we went through four agents that wanted to sell us properties that did not meet our want list and that we were not interested in purchasing. In a few months Sue selected and found several properties we liked and eventually closed on the one we liked the most. Besides being a real estate agent Sue is pleasure to deal with and she knows everyone in her territory. Should you need to buy or sell real estate in the Area of Montpelier VT, Sue should be your first call.

Sue was very easy to work with! Her flexible schedule, helpfulness and perseverance made the home buying process run smoothly! She was wonderful to work with, and I would highly recommend her as a real estate agent!

We first approached Janel one year before we put our house on the market. Knowing we were unsure if we were ready to sell, she met with us and came back quickly with the market analysis, recommended selling price and a summary of pros and cons of our house. At that time we decided to wait. A year later, when we were ready to sell, we decided to contact three agents so that we could make a sound decision. I have to say, that Janel outshined all from the beginning. She was quick to meet with us and to come back with comparables and a price recommendation. She made us very comfortable and it was an easy decision to go with her. 

To our surprise, the house sold very quickly (just two weeks on the market) and Janel was with us every step of the way through closing. She even helped us search (and we looked at MANY houses) for a house that met our needs and price point. She was a calm in what was a very emotional time. Janel is an expert with high integrity. She is professional, patient and personable. I am happy to recommend Janel whether you are selling your home or looking for a new one.
