Testimonials for Hal Sheeler
Hal is very knowledgeable, so well-connected – he was able to help us find something in our tiny little price range and didn’t mind walking up and down a million spider web-filled stairways to do it.
I can’t imagine not having Hal as our realtor. Hal’s approach to this process really made our lives so much easier than it could have been. He is professional, honest, caring, and
an all around great person to do business with.

Hal has continuously gone above and beyond my expectations to ensure smooth closings, even when I thought it would fall through for sure. He is diplomatic and always has his client’s best interests in mind.
Superb. I have no reservations at endorsing Mr. Sheeler unreservedly.
My wife and I are tremendously pleased with Hal’s services, and indeed we will avail ourselves of them again when we need real estate help in Vermont. Our evaluation is best told through reciting our experience in working with Hal. We met Hal in the spring of 2007: we contacted him concerning a piece of undeveloped land. Hal showed us the property, and was careful to listen to our tentative plans and ideas. In no way were we “sold” or pressured even though it was an extremely hot market at that time and we were looking at a relatively inexpensive piece of land. This wasn’t potentially a large deal for Hal, however he never made us feel that we were any less deserving of his time and care.
A year passed and our plans matured in a different and more practical direction. We made contact with Hal again (late March, 2008) and we ended up making an offer on the place we were to buy in mid-April. Hal is direct, clear and patient. Hal is also tremendously competent: we dealt with him intensively as we were doing this at a distance. It was the smoothest experience in purchasing real estate that weíve ever had: he is clear, direct and organized. We came to implicitly trust Hal, and we’ve availed ourselves of his knowledge of contractors, electricians, etc. We’ve had a similarly strong experience with these people.
We could not have been happier or more impressed by Hal’s efforts on our behalf. It has been such a singular experience for us that we consider him a friend.
We hope you are well. We all know you are a great guy with excellent customer service qualifications, I can not tell you how pleased we were to have you act on our behalf when we purchased our property, you acted very professional and in our best interest of our purchase and with the best thought and care of the sellers. You were patient with all our decision making and you helped us decide on a purchase with some good solid advice for which we thank you, I have never met a more remarkable person, you went the full mile even out of your way to help us, coming from England to Vermont was a huge transition, but you helped us through everything, for which we are so very grateful to you for Hall, your ads are the most professional ones we have seen in Vermont and we hope that you will have much success in your future career, we wish you well and thank you so much, if I had a gold cup I would give it to you the inscription would be, to the best loyal, and most friendly helpful person in selling, and helping buyers, in Vermont, we take our hats off to you sir.
Excellent services; thorough, thoughtful, respectful and a (much appreciated) listener. Did not waste my time with homes that I had not requested to see. I would recommend him to anyone without reservation.
