Why Work With Us?
Here's what our satisfied customers are saying about us:
We recently moved from overseas back to the US and this was our first home we ever owned! We've been married 11 years and rented/moved around most of that time, so this was a very special as well as daunting venture for us! Stacey was incredibly helpful throughout the entire process. First of all, she clearly explained each step of the process which alleviated much of our fear and trepidation. We appreciated her complete and total honesty with us - no matter how it affected our ultimate choice. Stacey listened really well to what was important to us in a home, and showed us good range of houses within those boundaries. She did not push us to spend outside of our budget, and in fact fully supported our desire to find a home well below our max budget. We appreciated so much that she obviously wanted her client's happiness and contentment with the home and financial position they found themselves in post-purchase rather than just selling us the biggest and most expensive house we could afford. Stacey handled the details and complications that arose with such finesse and ease - we honestly probably have no idea the issues she "fielded" for us! The entire process was very smooth and the little hiccups along the way felt exactly so - little. They may in actuality have been larger and more difficult to resolve, but Stacey did not overwhelm us with anything we did not need to deal with. She kept us informed each step of the way, and constantly checked in to make sure we understood. At times we just deferred to her wisdom and expertise, and she was completely trustworthy and very conscientious with that. Stacey was a lot of fun to work with! We did a lot of laughing - which tremendously helped lighten this big and often overwhelming decision. She shared stories of past experience both professionally and personally that gave us helpful info to compare/contrast with. She was very prompt in her responses - the house we actually bought was one we saw very last minute. Within an hour or so from contacting her (late in the day) she was meeting us at the house to view it. She was very thoughtful to recommend things to us we didn't know to ask for - such as offering repeatedly to meet us at the house to walk through it a couple times just to be sure we wanted to move forward. At one point I personally had second thoughts about a couple things regarding the house, and when I texted Stacey she immediately called and took the time to talk it all through with me. She truly cared about us - not just selling a house to us. That meant the world! Stacey achieved a wonderful balance in the negotiating process. She was willing to "go to bat" and ask for repairs to be made and things to be done/changed, but also advised us wisely when she felt we needed to either let something go or back down. We were very happy with the final outcome! Overall - we would HIGHLY recommend Stacey Barton as a realtor. She clearly knew the area, the entire process and how to navigate it well and smoothly, as well as was incredibly courteous, kind and went above and beyond to serve our family along the way! Thank you Stacey for being a piece of our story as we begin our life here in Vermont...!

I would recommend Blake Gintof as your realtor in a heartbeat! Being a first time home buyer, Blake made sure I had any and all information that I needed. I never felt that I had any questions as he was always right on top of things! Blake kept me posted with everything going on in our transaction. Down to earth and experienced!!

I highly recommend working with Larry Rutherford on either selling or buying a home. My fiancé and I just closed on a condo yesterday morning and Larry is the one who helped us get there. He graciously worked with our schedules to show us different homes, always came prepared with information, knowledge of the area and information on other homes to look at next. Once we found one we liked, Larry helped us make a competitive offer and oversaw all of the negotiating. He took time to go over paperwork with us and took all of our calls when we had questions. His office was also easy to work with. They were very fast with paperwork and made the process as simple as possible. In summary, if and when we are in the market for a new home, I will be calling Larry.

You were such a help to us in selling my mother-in-laws house. We appreciated all of the things you told us.. Thanks for helping us set a reasonable price for the house. You always kept us informed as to our obligations. We felt confident in the advice you gave us. We felt like we knew what was going on with the process. You were great about responding to our questions. We did not feel in the dark with the process. Thank you for making the sale a reality. We are pleased that it happened quickly.

My family and I decided to relocate from Southern California to Vermont and were referred to Susanne Roupe!!! This has been the best reference we could have ever received. We were definitely not your typical home buyers and have Susanne a difficult task, but I have to say she made amazing things happen that we all did not believe was possible. Susanne helped us all along the way and even while we were in California while our house was being built she worked with the builder and even helped us pick out cabinets and flooring. Susanne also stopped by the property and would send us pictures of our dream home coming together!!! She went way above and beyond the call of duty. We would not have been able to make all this happen without the dedication Susanne had and the passion she has!!! You cannot go wrong at all if you choose Susanne for your home hunting and selling needs! Thank you thank you Susanne, our family truly appreciates all you did for us!!!

We just closed on our beautiful new home in Colchester with the help of Signature Properties, and especially Hank Gintof! Throughout the entire home buying experience, Hank went above and beyond to make all aspects of the process seamless. His associate, Elliot Roucheleau was of great assistance during the sale of one of our homes (we were selling two), he was always just a call or text away, taking the stress of listing, showings, and associated necessities in the selling process off our plate. Hank was immediately attentive to a few glitches we had during the process of selling our second property, connecting with necessary people and making "things happen" when our buyer was having some paperwork issues. Needless to say, when all was said and done, he saw us through every bit of our final purchase, and even though we closed a week ago, he still checks in regularly to make sure we are settled and happy with our purchase. Although we intend on staying in our new home for a very long time, if we ever need a realtor again, we will WITHOUT HESITATION seek the assistance of Hank and his Signature Properties team. We highly recommend them for any and all of your real estate needs!

Susanne Roupe was an outstanding buyer broker!! Susanne is personable, honest, warm, very knowledgeable, and easily accessible! She really listens to your needs and desires and then helps you through the process of home buying. Susanne loves to negotiate and she does it well! We love our new house! We highly recommend Susanne Roupe.
Hank uses his superior knowledge and experience of the real estate business to provide excellent service to his customers. He is energetic and willing to go the extra mile to insure client success. I would highly recommend Hank as a real estate professional.
We had a difficult experience where we were in Florida while our house was on the market. There were several things that we were unable to attend to ourselves. Hank and his team went above and beyond to take care of things to make a sale complete. They pay close attention to details and didn't let anything slip through the cracks that would have jeopardized our sale. We have used Hank multiple times all with positive outcomes. Thanks to Hank and his team.
We placed our house on the market thinking it may take a few months to sell but with Susanne's help we were under contract in 4 days! Susanne was always there day or night to answer any questions we had. She even helped us look for a rental property to move into while we build our new home. I believe she went above and beyond to make everything go smoothly for us!
