Personal Profile

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.

    Howard was a very communicative and made sure we knew everything we needed to feel comfortable with each step in the home buying process. He brought a lot of local knowledge to the table which was a huge help to us being from out of state.

    Howard Birchard sold me my first home in the North East Kingdom and he was great to work with then, and why I called him direct to work with him again. He knows who I need to contact and tells me ahead of time when certain things will need to be done so I can plan accordingly. I highly recommend Howard! Throughout the process I encountered people who smiled when I told them I was working with him. He is always professional and a very respected member of this community. He made buying a home so stress-free, he explained everything (lots of paperwork!) and answered all my questions. I never felt he was trying to rush me through a home and waited patiently as I looked around. And when Howard knew what I was looking for, recommended I "just take a look" at the house that ended up being exactly what I wanted.

    From the minute we met Howard we knew he was the guy for us. He was knowledgeable about everything we asked, and he was very pleasurable to deal with and he has a no nonsense attitude that we really appreciated. He stuck with us for over 5 months working tirelessly to help find the perfect property for us. We flew in from south Florida to meet Howard at the general store in Troy. We rented a truck and drove up from Burlington to meet him. He was there exactly at the time we agreed to. Without a doubt he is the best broker we have met. We highly recommend Howard and feel like he is a part of our family now. For the work Howard put into helping us find our piece of heaven in Vermont we want to have him for a dinner on us. He wrote multiple addendums and had our back every step of the way. Nothing shook Howard. He was always on the deal and looking out for our interests. Even when lawyers and selling agents were slow to answer, Howard took care of us himself.

    We started looking for our dream property in the NEK about 3 years ago, and initially spoke with several realtors in the area. Howard stood out with his extensive local knowledge, super approachable, patient and friendly demeanor, and timely responsiveness to our endless questions. We went back and forth with Howard in evaluating many types of properties over that 3 year period, and finally found what we were looking for in Sutton! Howard was a tireless advocate for us every step of the way, and we really appreciated his steady guidance and focus in leading the team to successfully complete the closing on time as scheduled, and with zero issues. We now consider Howard Birchard a family friend, and would strongly recommend him to anyone that is looking for a property in the NEK. Thanks Howard, stay awesome!!

  • Buyer review
    We would recomend Howard Birchard's services to everyone. He is very prompt with a reply, very through in guiding us through a listing, making a contract and always available. This was the tenth property that we have bought over almost 40 years together and the last two, that he helped with both from out of state and with us living locally, were by far the best realty experiences that we have had. We certainly would use his help again.
