Barb, Curtis and the staff at Preferred Properties helped me out of the roughest period in my entire life. I was just a few weeks into a marital separation and needed to find a home that would be comfortable for my two children and my dog and myself. A mere month later the deal was done and now, 3 months after that my kids and pup and I are as comfortable in our new home as possible. - David Weissgold, MD
Thank you so much for all of your skills, understanding and great experience during the selling of our house. It was a lot for us to handle - especially without having done it before - and you made it so easy. You are amazing and we are so grateful for you!! - Maren - Burlington, VT
Barb made buying a house easy despite a not-so-easy situation. My family and I moved to Vermont from Vienna, Austria. Not only was Barb more than willing to conduct a lot of business over the internet, she found us temporary housing and made the transition to our new home seamless. I would recommend working with Preferred Properties without hesitation to anyone. - Libby B
My husband and I were first time home-buyers with no clue what we were doing, and were wary of starting over having already gone through one realtor that did not meet our needs. Curtis & Barb changed our minds the first time we met them! They never pressured us and always made us feel like we had all the time in the world. We would recommend them to anyone and we will be definitely using them again when we buy our second home. - Heather Facteau
We had a great experience with Barb and Curtis and thank them for such professional work at all times. Both Barb and Curtis are hardworking, persistent, trustworthy, intelligent, and competent, and they were dedicated to helping us find the right home. They are friendly and genuine people whom we trust--we couldn't have asked for better representation. - David and Michelle
Curtis & Barb did the research necessary to help us to price our home competitively and did an excellent job with the marketing brochure. She was professional, flexible and truly cared about our needs. When it came time to negotiate, she took a balanced approach with regards to our concerns and her years of experience. - Denise Marcelle
We are so grateful to you for all of the hard work you have done for us. We have marveled throughout this process at how you possess every single skill that a real estate agent needs to have to do her job well. This is true of very few people, and we are truly grateful for your competence, persistence, patience, and good humor. We know that there is no way we could have done any of this without you. Thank you so much. - Michelle DeVellis
I moved to the Burlington area a year ago, and thanks to the helpfulness and expertise of Preferred Properties, my experience in finding a wonderful place to live was fun and virtually seamless! Barb spent time getting to know my needs and desires, respected my concerns, and was helpful in all respects--even to helping me put my new Vermont license plates on my car! I felt as though I had made my first new good friend in Burlington in addition to having a realtor I could work with and trust. - Peggy B
We interviewed several realtors before finding Preferred Properties. None of the others could, or would, back up their claims of greatness with a proven record of success. Not so with Barb and Curtis. They instantly provided the information I asked for, and I knew we’d be a great fit for each other. It was the best decision we’ve made in a very long time. They were honest, helpful, and responsive throughout the process. We would recommend them to anyone! - Patrick Dodge & Sonia Clark
"Thank you for the prompt response. That is great customer service. Not many people still strive for excellence in customer service. It is nice to see someone else has the same principles for customer satisfaction as I do. Thank you." - Ellie May Parent
Barb did a great presentation of how she would market our home - I knew then that we didn't need to meet with anyone else. Because of her great marketing we had showings in the first 2 weeks! Barb was always quick to follow-up with her emails to us. We could reach her any time. She'd always return our calls and answers to our questions or concerns. - Patty G.
Vermont should take notice of Preferred Properties. Finally, Vermont lands are being marketed properly by an outdoor enthusiast like Curtis Trousdale. The virtual tour and marketing materials they produced were of exceptional quality. After only a few days, we had our buyer; a fellow hunter like me. From start to finish, listing my property with other outdoor people was a wonderful experience.

Words cannot express how much we appreciate all the help and guidance you gave us. You are an uüber agent. Thanks for all your hard work.
- Allan and Jackie C., Worcester, VT
Curtis focused on points I felt were important and his experience selling properties similar to mine. When he came over he was prepared to speak in detail about his marketing strategy. Curtis was professional in his conduct, enthusiastic about his ability to sell our home and supportive in his advice.
- Bruce E., Braintree, VT
I chose Preferred Properties because Curtis is motivated to sell. He even helped mark boundaries which took a significant amount of time. He has a focus on quality, timeliness and accuracy. Keep up the good work.

Curtis was recommended to me by a friend. Our home was going to be a different sale in these times; beautiful, but very remote. The qualities we found most helpful were Curtis’ honesty and the enormous amount of advertising on the World Wide Web. Our home was listed the first week in May and was sold the second week in June. Job well done!
- Barbara H., Walden, VT
You were highly recommended by an acquaintance of mine. I appreciated your open and honest communication with me through the process; from my initial mixed feelings about selling, an honest opinion of value, an impersonal point of view to suggestions/recommendations to make it more appealing/marketable. Your services are SUPERB.
- Susan O., Alburgh, VT
I saw your ad on TV. Your prompt service, straight forwardness and honesty were very helpful. You always told me your thoughts; not necessarily what I wanted to hear. You were professional, prompt and had a positive attitude. It has been an honor and a pleasure doing business with you and I look forward to a long standing relationship with Preferred Properties.
- Ken B., Barre, VT
I interviewed and reviewed websites of 4 other brokers. You were professional, exuberant, and responsive and wanted my business!! You sold my property pronto. You are terrific – keep it up!
