I entered the Real Estate business in 2000. I practiced during the summers while attending the University of Vermont, where I graduated with a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering Management. Post-college I traveled around the U.S. and worked as a handyman mainly in Colorado and Alaska. I learned to appreciate the beautiful Northeast Kingdom where I grew up and decided to come back to the family business and I am now a Managing Broker. I married my long time sweet heart, Megan, in July of 2012, and in November of 2013 we welcomed our first son, Brock, into our lives. In 2015 we completed our family of four with our beautiful daughter, Brynn. I enjoy outdoor activities such as hiking, hunting, soccer, riding ATVs, snowmobiling, skiing and snowshoeing. I was the 2012-13 Orleans County Board of Realtors President. I was also named Orleans County Board of Realtors 2009 Realtor of the Year. Our top producing team would be honored to assist you in any of your real estate endeavors!
I am a Vermont Native, having grown up in Troy by the slopes of Jay Peak! After graduating from the University of Rhode Island with a Bachelor's Degree in Business and Marketing, I moved to places such as Westerly, RI and Boston, MA working in the Marketing and Sales Industry before choosing Island Pond as my home. I find the Northeast Kingdom accommodating to my active lifestyle with my husband and two children. Eight years of selling property in and around the NEK have given me a great understanding of what our area has to offer, and I look forward to passing it on to others!
I have lived all over New England and have found that there is no better place than Northern Vermont & no better job than helping people realize that so they too can become a part of the area.
My grandfather, Jean Paul Bonneau, always loved driving around and seeing beyond land & properties to create homes and I believe this rubbed off on me.
I currently live in Island Pond and plan on enjoying my lake & mountain views for a very long time.
The Northeast Kingdom truly is a place I love & a wonderful place to live and pursue my career. Like many who come to enjoy Vermont's beauty, I am still overjoyed with the changes of the seasons and spending time with family and friends in our great outdoors. With a heritage rich in French traditions, I have a true appreciation for the many cultures that enrich our area. I look forward to the opportunity of sharing my understanding of the area with you to effectively market your property or to achieve the dream of home ownership in a place that I am proud to call home.
After a stint in Tahiti & Hawaii, I worked in communications for the Ministry of International Relations in Los Angeles. I also established a business, assisting real estate brokers to market vacant properties and found my passion: the real estate market. But I missed the countryside and relocated to Colorado for 4 years. After more than 11 years with Century 21 Farm & Forest in beautiful Vermont Northeast Kingdom, I have enjoyed every minute serving customers and clients. I work according to your schedule - 7 days/week. Originally from Québec, I am fluent in French & English.
Former owner of Derby Village store for twenty years. I have been a Realtor since 2002. My wife and I live in Derby and have a summer cottage on Seymour Lake. Downhill skiing, hunting, and the love of Standard bred horses and Dachshunds, and spending time at the lake is what I enjoy.
