I love working in the area I grew up in, with a community I know so well. I would describe myself as an entrepreneur who thrives on building collaborative relationships and achieving results for people.
At a young age I started my own company, working with families to organize their homes and systems. I found such enjoyment improving my clients lives by helping them eliminate day-to-day stressors.
I am now privileged to continue working to improve peoples lives, now de-stressing my clients home buying and selling experience. Developing a relationship of trust and understanding with my clients has been core to my business' growth.
If you are in need of a Realtor, I am confident I can assist you in meeting your real estate needs.
Growing up in East Wallingford, Vermont, Jen Butler remembers her father building their very first home. Jen and her sisters were so excited when their parents purchased a camp near the lake to enjoy the summers. When they arrived at camp, the young girls realized the building was a teardown, and their summer involved yet another renovation. Those formidable years were Jen's first introduction to learning about homeownership and building equity.
Since 2001, Jen has lived in and worked in most of the towns within Chittenden County. After graduating from Champlain College with a degree in education, Jen taught at most every grade level. From daycares in Milton to high schools in Colchester and So. Burlington, summer programs in Winooski, and even a few college classes, Jen loved developing a rapport with her students and, most of all, when they actually enjoyed the highly dreaded math classes. During that time, Jen and her husband Matthew bought a home that they later renovated to meet their growing family needs in a community they wanted to raise their family. With the equity from their first home, the couple moved to a larger house closer to the kids' school that needed even more renovations, and started turning their attention to owning investment property, one out-of-state in an area they love to visit.
As a property investor in multi-family and student housing units, Mark Frier’s entrepreneurial and real estate success started in Chicago, inspired by his grandmother and father who developed successful businesses during his childhood. Holding a degree in mechanical engineering, he was lured to Vermont in 2006 to work as a project manager and engineer for Burton Snowboards.
Mark has grown his real estate investments into thriving businesses with persistence and interest in remodeling and redevelopment projects, constant evaluation of what drives economic growth in a community, and the ability to assemble industry experts with similar passions. A resident of Waterbury, everything about the area checked the proverbial box for a few of his adventures: access to the mountains and quality of life, commuting distance, and recognition of an evolving town. Waterbury was the perfect location to own a commercial building, home to his first restaurant in 2009, The Reservoir. Mark also owns a second restaurant, the Bench in Stowe, and holds additional rental units, apartments, and industrial buildings. His ventures require solid trust in an experienced management team and chefs to operate the day-to-day and genuine respect for his employees. He also grew a hobby for home brewing into a commercial operation under the brand Big Tree Beer.
