We created Burlington Realty to focus on a small geographic region. We were tired of showing properties an hour away and trying to pretend we knew the area. Now we focus on Burlington, South Burlington, Colchester, & Winooski... nothing else. We are entrenched in the community and know what is going on.
When we created Burlington Realty we wanted to give our clients options in how their real estate transactions are handled. We felt the traditional national brokerage firms were driving up cost but not providing any additional services. At Burlington Realty we want to do it better for less, nothing else!
At Burlington Realty we save you money. We charge less for our listing & buying services and we provide better representation. How do we do it? We cut out national brokerage firms, shareholders, generational owners, and team leaders. That leaves more money in our agents pockets, allowing them to focus on their clients!
We are a young, fresh, innovative real estate agency with the drive to do more deals. We aren't hampered by corporate strategies and share holder profits. We created Burlington Realty to give you a better, local, option for all your real estate needs!

He grew up in Burlington, is a fourth generation Burlington landlord, second generation Realtor, and a true real estate enthusiast.

Eric has been involved in real estate his entire life and with a taste for development, decided to focus on both real estate and construction in college. After graduating with honors from Roger Williams University in Bristol, RI with a focus in Construction Management, Eric joined the family business and acquired his real estate license.
