"Simply put, most people who live in the Upper Valley area of New Hampshire and Vermont consider themselves to be thoroughly spoiled. The region is rich in everything you'd ever want: small town life, lots of four-season outdoor activities-summer's hiking trails become winter's cross country skiing trails-a surfeit of culture, great food, unique shopping possibilities, intellectual stimulation, and last but not least, friendly people..."
From Practice Link, The Online Physician Job Bank And Magazine

Buyers Agent?
What does it cost to have you as a buyer's agent?

The fee is negotiated between you and me.  For Multiple Listing System properties that fee is usually built into the price and there is no additional charge to the buyer; it is paid by the listing agency. 

    For non-MLS properties, should you choose to have me also search For Sale By Owner properties, the fee for my services would be paid by you, the buyer, unless the seller is willing to pay that  fee for bringing the , buyer. This is often the case.

The name Lebanon comes from the biblical cedars of ancient Lebanon, a Semitic word meaning "white" that refers to the nearby mountain with perpetual snows on its summit. Established in 1761, the name for this town was probably selected by the many early settlers who were from Lebanon, Connecticut, including Eleazar Wheelock, founder of Dartmouth College. Lebanon was the original location of the Indian Charity School from which Dartmouth is descended. In 1781, Lebanon was one of the towns that attempted to join Vermont, but later returned to New Hampshire.  Lebanon was incorporated as a city in 1957.
