What do the startling changes in the Middle East have to do with Vermont? Think globally for a moment. Think access to the web, democracy and prosperity.

Since its inception, Efficiency Vermont has been working diligently to help Vermonters reduce their annual energy costs which results in utilities not having to buy as much … (1 comments)

vt real estate: Burlington Vermont Fireworks - July 3, 2010 - 07/14/10 08:41 AM
The Fireworks show in Burlington Vermont this year were spectacular! Earlier in the evening (around 8:20) there was a special stunt air plane show which ended with some daylight fireworks. The stunt pilot dived repeatedly while releasing bright-colored smoke and the fireworks went up in the smoke. As usual the main Burlington fireworks show started at around 9:30 and it was quite a show. I think the Burlington Fireworks show gets better each year. Apparently they cost $40,000 for this year's show, $5,000 more than last year. The good news is that it doesn't cost Burlington Vermont taxpayers a dime as … (0 comments)

It sounds like a great listing – in your price range – in a good neighborhood – with features you’re looking for. First impressions mean a lot – but you find the bushes are overgrown, the front hallway is covered with tacky foil wallpaper, the kitchen cabinets are painted dark brown, the living room rug smells musty, and the hardwood floors have black water marks on them.
Should you head back out the door? Maybe. But to fully determine whether you should cross this house off of your list you’ll need to gather … (1 comments)

February 15th, 2010
Burlington Vermont
To answer this question, let me begin by asking a question. When you are in a legal proceeding, would you have the lawyer representing the person sitting across the table from you represent you as well? The answer is so simple. Of course not.
Why then when buying a house or property which for many people represents one of the largest financial decisions of their lives would you utilize the Realtor who represents the Seller(s) to safeguard your best interests as the Buyer(s)?
In Vermont, we do not have "dual agency." Some states do allow … (5 comments)
