My siblings and I had spent quite a bit of effort trying to find the realtor that would help us to get our family property sold, and to the right buyer. It is very difficult to know what realtor to call, especially when you do not live in the area where the property is. But, even with that advantage, there are so many realtors to choose from and how does anyone pick a realtor that will actually get the job done? Most realtors, I suspect, rely on referrals from friends and family. But do those referrals come about because of the results the realtor delivers to their clients, or simply because someone knows someone and because the referring person happens to have access to a lot of people that need realtor services?
From the moment of the first call from Karen Whitby with the Nate Malley Team, I knew I was talking to the right realtor group. From my experience in the real estate and mortgage industry, I could tell that this group of realtors had been through the in-depth training to learn how to be effective and results oriented professionals. I have always believed that whatever endeavor you pursue, you have to be educated and trained on how best to perform that endeavor. Too many people simply jump into the real estate industry because it is easy to make a lot of money, or so they think. The fact is, the business is not easy and there is a lot involved that the average person never sees.
As I said, I knew from talking with Karen, that this group had their act together; and I knew this because I sensed that they had a complete system for marketing and closing out the sale of any given property. From the initial advice and market analysis to the professional staging of the home to show it in its best light, to the expert and professional guidance and advice we received from those we were in contact on a daily basis and throughout the entire experience, I can very strongly recommend the Nate Malley Team. I want to emphasize the amazing professionalism this team demonstrated because the qualities this team has is very rare in the industry. The old theory that 20% of professionals deliver 80% of the sales has never been truer. You have to find the group that is in that small minority of successful professionals.
There are many members of the team that provide the support that enable the folks on the front line to perform at their optimal level, but seldom receive the credit they are due. It truly is a team effort, and although I cannot mention all of the names on the team, I can say that the two people with the most amount of face time and phone communications, Karen Whitby and Andrew Mannix, demonstrated true professionalism beyond the level I could ever imagine. My siblings and I are absolutely ecstatic that we hired the Nate Malley Team to market and ultimately sell our family property that has been in the family for nearly 100 years. We wanted not just a buyer, but the right buyer that would appreciate and care for the property that had given our family so much pleasure and wonderful memories over the years.
Thank you, Nate Malley Team. There is no doubt that if and when we have another property to sell, you will be the Professionals we will call.
I cannot say enough positive things about my experience with the Nate Malley Team. They are on their game from start to finish! From researching the properties they would show me ahead of time in anticipation of knowing what factors would be important to me as a buyer. To going the extra mile and finding creative ways to work things out in the negotiation process. Overall a great experience and I recommend them to anyone I know buying or selling because I know that they will be just as pleased as I was working with them.

I cannot say enough about how Nate and his team went above and beyond for us. We had listed our condo with another realtor for 8+ months with no offers at all! But with Nate as our realtor he had an offer within the first week! His team is amazing if you follow their lead they will do everything they can to sell your property. It amazed me how many different places they had our listing appear. If you haven’t had luck in the past give Nate and his team a chance you won’t be sorry!
– Ashley, Colchester seller
Thank YOU all SO much for your outstanding service, commitment and compassion during this process. It was a long and stressful journey, but certainly worth it in the end. You can be assured that we will highly recommend your team if any of our friends in the area are looking for a Realtor referral. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for helping to make our family’s dream come true.

Elise was instrumental in helping us find our home. She was patient, honest and made the difficult task of buying real estate feel much easier. We could contact her anytime, with even the silliest of questions, and she’d always respond quickly with a straight answer. Bottom line, she made us feel like her top priority and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking for a home.
– Scott, Williston buyer
Their attention to detail, communication and social networking was far above any realtor! We would highly highly recommend The Nate Malley Team.
– Kelly, Williston seller
We are a young couple and we would highly recommend Elise while looking for a home. We are not experts and we needed someone in our corner to ask the tough questions or the questions we didn’t know to ask. Elise was in our corner and helped us look for things in a home we didn’t know to look for. Our closing went fast and smooth and it was all due to Elise’s hardwork and her direction during the process. She turned an ordinary house into OUR HOME, not many can say they help others through that endeavor. Choose Elise and find your HOME.
– Katie and Dale, Colchester buyers
Nate Malley sold a condo for my husband and I. He got us a great price and was always available to answer any questions we had. Nate was great to work with as was his Team. I really feel he is the best real estate agent in the Burlington area. He provided service above and beyond anything we had ever had in a real estate agent before. I highly recommend Nate and his Team!
– Cassie, Winooski seller
The Nate Malley Team was thoroughly professional and helpful in the sale of our condo. They helped us plan the sale, set the price, and the condo sold relatively quickly (about 30 days from listing to contract). They were with us every step of the way, with advice and support, including taking care of the many details that needed to be dealt with after we had a signed contract.
The thing that is unique in our experience with realtors is the creative “staging” of our home for sale: it never looked better. The benefits of having a talented TEAM cannot be overemphasized: the individual talents of team members blended nicely to give us a positive experience. We highly recommend them!
– Richard and Cary, South Burlington sellers
This is my second purchase with Nate! He has again exceeded my expectations. He is great negotiator and will get you the price you want. I have only good things to say about Nate and his team. We used all of his recommendations and everyone was professional and knew exactly what they were doing. We will be using him again the next time we sell our house!
– Ashley, Essex Junction buyer
From the day we met with Nate, to the day we closed on the property Nate was in constant communication with us and always there to answer questions. We were relocating out of state and had to get our home sold quick. Nate gave our home the marketing exposure it needed, got the job done and we were able to move without any worry. I would highly recommend the Nate Malley team to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
– Mark and Lisa, Colchester sellers
Nate and his team were awesome, our house was on the market for only about a week when it had two offers. I would highly recommend him to anyone!
– Kelly, Essex Junction seller
Elise was wonderful through the entire process of finding and buying our first home! We previously worked with another realtor and did not have the best experience. Elise made us feel comfortable and educated us through the entire process. Elise is extremely knowledgeable of the market and easy to work with. She listened to what we liked and did not like about homes and helped us find the perfect home. I would highly recommend Elise to anyone in the market for a new home! She is absolutely fabulous!
– Meghan, Essex buyer
Finding a house is a tremendously daunting task. I needed someone to deal with the constantly changing conditions, leaving me to focus solely on what I wanted. I chose Nate Malley to guide me through the process. It was without question the right choice. He was always there to collaborate, answer questions, and to help me understand that I didn’t have to worry about the countless variables associated with buying a house. Nate took my wife and I (who was pregnant at the time) on a huge number of showings, covering a wide range of styles and locations, all while staying within our budget. Throughout the process Nate was able to identify what we were looking for, picking up on subtle clues, and asking the right questions, even as my wife and I were struggling to figure it out ourselves. And then he found it. It was perfect, exactly what we knew we wanted, but didn’t know how to express. Had we been on our own we probably could have eventually found a house, but because of Nate we found our home.
– Kem and Jenn, Colchester buyers
Nate Malley and his team, particularly Karen Whitby, were very helpful and supportive with the entire process of selling our home of many years, from the very beginning of improving our home and getting it ready for the market, to the numerous showings that they scheduled. Karen Whitby went the extra mile with being sure everything looked great for the open house, and then even helping to change out window boxes from flowers to fall/winter decorations when the seasons changed. Once we received an offer, Nate Malley was very supportive and responsive in conveying our position to the buyers’ realtor and helping us arrive at a satisfactory sale of our home.
– Joan and John, Colchester sellers
We were in a huge time crunch to get into a house before I had our first baby. In a matter of days Elise was taking us to see houses, and I would bet we looked at about 10 houses in about a week in the middle of an ice storm. When we finally found the house we wanted, Elise helped guide us on a putting in a competitive offer and we were closing within days. Everything with the closing went smoothly and we were in our house just a few weeks before our little guy joined the family. I would wholeheartedly recommend Elise to anyone in the market for a new house. She will help you with everyone from start to finish.
– Katie, buyer
This team is AMAZING!!! I worked with Nate and Kerry on selling my condo. They were so patient, and professional! They really bent over backwards to get my family and I in our dream home. I will forever be grateful to them, and have really made some wonderful friends for life. I would HIGHLY recommend this Team if you are selling and/or buying. They put their clients first, and that makes all the difference. A huge thank you to the Nate Malley Team!!
– Abby, Colchester seller
Nate was incredibly helpful. He was always positive and prepared! He was recommend to us by a friend and we have been very happy working with him. Thank you!
– Andy and Maegan, Essex sellers
I am very thankful for everything Elise did for my fiancée and I. We had the pleasure of buying our first home thanks to the help from Elise. Every step of the way Elise made sure we felt comfortable in each decision we made, she also made sure we had all the information needed to make this experience as fun and exciting as it should be. I can’t say enough about how helpful and professional she has been throughout this entire home buying process!
– Craig, Essex buyer
Nate and his team did a great job in helping us sell our home. They were extremely responsive and proactive through the process. I would recommend them highly if you are selling your house.
– Steve, Williston seller
Elise helped me find a wonderful home in the right location here in Vermont, and it wasn’t easy as I had a tight budget. She was relentless in her search and had a most positive outlook even when I got discouraged. Elise also took into account my “wish list” as much as possible. She was flexible in her use of my adult son, who lives in Burlington, to take over some real estate chores for me when I was out of state. I would highly recommend Elise as a fine real estate agent.
– Leigh, Winooski buyer
Elise was absolutely wonderful throughout our whole home buying process. Always emailed back quick and we knew she wanted the best for us and that made us feel great!
– Casey, Fairfax buyer
Besides being knowledgeable, helpful, and pleasant Elsie is a good sport! I feel very secure working with her to find just the right place. I highly recommend her services!
– V.I., buyer
Elise is very professional, quick and great to work with from start to finish!
