Realtor’s recommendation for homebuyers

“As a real estate agent, when I help folks buy a home, I always recommend signing up with Front Porch Forum. We are so fortunate to have FPF keeping us informed about what is going on… it’s such an easy way to connect with neighbors.  Please consider making a contribution, if you can, so that we can continue having this wonderful neighborhood service.”

Touched by Montpelier neighbors

“Thank you everyone who replied to me the other day when I posted that I was in urgent need of an apartment for June 1st. I was overwhelmed by the number of responses I received, and touched at all the offers of support. I have found an apartment!

“Thank you Front Porch Forum, Montpelier, and Vermont in general for being so neighborly and supportive! This is what makes Vermont a great place to live :).”

Be A Good Neighbor – The Front Porch Forum Story

Lang McLaughry Real Estate, a leading real estate company in Vermont, focused on Front Porch Forum recently on their website.  We’ve heard from Realtors across the state that they love to inform their clients about FPF… a “modern welcome wagon.”


St. Albans FPF… fantastic!

Earlier I posted a “FOR RENT” posting for my step-daughter for her house on the St. Albans City Front Porch Forum.

We were inundated with requests.

She has rented it and I appreciate all those who responded to my posting.  Thanks.

Making life easier

#BTV #VT – Just want to give a big thanks to the Front Porch Forum. After less than a week after we posted our investment property for sale on here we are under contract… and we hadn’t even formally listed it yet!!

Over the years we have found all our tenants through you. We leave this part of our lives with a big thanks for all the wonderful people you’ve helped us meet, and for how much easier you’ve made our lives.

Neighbor house switcheroo…

#VT – Sadly, I will soon be selling my large house in the village. I very much want to stay right here. If you are selling, or know of anybody who is or might be selling a small (2 bedroom?) house or condo in Richmond Village, please contact me. Thank you.”

Posted by Joanna on the Richmond Front Porch Forum.  The next day, she received from Christy…

Hi Joanna – We have a 2 bedroom townhouse that we love, but that we will eventually outgrow.  We’ve been looking for homes in the village… we’d love to stay here.  Have you already sold your house?

Joanna shared with us just today…

I am thrilled to report that, two months after my initial FPF posting, I  purchased the townhouse and Christy and her family purchased my home.  Amazingly we each found the perfect home and we were able to sell our homes without ever putting them on the market.  Thank you, Front Porch Forum!
