William Raveis Winhall Real Estate forms a Team to support Komen's Snowshoe for the Cure

William Raveis Winhall Real Estate has formed a team to participate in the Komen Vermont Snowshoe for the Cure on Sunday, February 26th.  We only have a few weeks to get our fundraising in gear and do our share to help make this event a success.  The best part of the fundraising is that we know that 75% of the funds raised will stay in the local area to help fund local breast cancer education, screening and treatment programs. The Stratton area does such a great job at supporting organizations and we felt that since it was in our backyard it was time to start participating.  We want to reach out and support our local community! 

If you want to join our team or donate please go to the link below or on Facebook.   You can also call the office for details 802-297-1550.

William Raveis Winhall Real Estate announced today that Carrie Mathews will be the new managing broker. Mathews will oversee the company's growing portfolio of properties, business operations and sales leadership. She takes over managing from Ted and Betsy Cetron, who established the business in 1974.

Mathews comes with a wealth of industry experience, beginning her 11-year career with Winhall Real Estate in 2004, and helping the brokerage list and sell numerous luxury residences while providing exceptional client care. Mathews is also the current South Central Vermont Board of Realtors® state director, served as its secretary from 2009-2014 and was recognized as the board's Realtor of the Year in 2014. Mathews transitions to the Winhall team from Four Seasons Sotheby's.

John Biondolillo, president, highlighted that "Carrie has a true passion for helping customers and clients with their real estate goals, whether it be a primary home or vacation property! She has tremendous energy and enthusiasm. We are delighted to have her head the team in Stratton."

Mathews comments: "I am excited at the opportunity to serve our clients not only as a broker but as a manager coordinating all aspects of their experience. John and Marcia Biondolillo have the same energy, vision and values that I do. They are extremely supportive and have a genuine interest in helping their agents succeed. Also, Raveis has cutting-edge technology and marketing. Raveis is widely recognized as the leader in markets where so many Stratton home buyers have their primary residences. Raveis has the marketing that will deliver our Vermont property offerings to the right clientele, especially in southern New England and New York. That is a huge advantage for our seller clients."

Spring Has Sprung at Stratton

The weather has finally warmed up although it does look like the SMS mogul kids are still skiing the bumps on World Cup.   As always, this time of year everything comes to a screeching halt.   Restaurants close and people go on vacation.   The numberof Sales and contracts  at Stratton seem to be pretty similar to the previous month.   Hit this link to see recent Stratton Sales and closings.

  The Stratton Foundation is selling the original chandelier's in the base lodge so I anticipate construction for the new Lodge should start soon.  

 Wanderlust  is coming back to Stratton in mid -June.  Debbie and Lisa in our Stratton Short Term Rental Department  are very busy booking rentals for that time period.  I know lots of owners are planning to be here to enjoy all that Wanderlust at Stratton has to offer.

The phones have been ringing with people looking for summer rentals and winter seasonals' for next year.   We are seeing appointments with people looking for next year even though it is early.

There does not seem to be a large number of properties coming on the market which is a good trend and the number of available seasonal rentals is done. This should convert to people who realize that they should buy instead of rent.   Property values have not come up much from the low so there are still a lot of great deals.

We are very excited about our new Web page -- www.winhallrealestate.com
