Being born and raised in Southern California, I grew up with a strong connection to the outdoors; camping, hiking, skiing and playing in the mountains, desert and ocean.

    In 1979, I moved to Vermont to ski for a season in Stowe. I arrived that summer to settle in and prepare for the upcoming winter season when something I never expected happened... summertime in Vermont! I'm not saying I didn't know that Vermont had a summer season, I just had no idea how spectacular it was! The lushest green forests backed by the bluest of blue skies that I had ever seen. This was the place for me. The following summer I met my wife Susan on Cape Cod. In 1986 I began my real estate career in Stowe and "the rest is history".

    For me, Vermont has been the best place to live and raise my family. I continue to enjoy my connection with the outdoors, regularly spending time mountain biking, back country skiing, kayaking, and gardening.

    Being active professionally and in the local community I have been honored twice, most recently in 2016, as the Lamoille Area Realtor of the Year. I have served as President of the Stowe Area Board of Realtors and as a school board chair. My commitment to the local youth has included volunteering as a ski instructor for the After School Elementary Ski Program for over 20 years, coaching on various local youth sports teams and being a founding member of the Lamoille Union High School Boosters Club. Having received the 2012 Good Neighbor of the Year award for my work in the Hyde Park Elementary School as the Mentoring Program's coordinator is among my most cherished recognitions. I am a proud supporter of the Stowe Land Trust, the Vermont Nature Conservancy and the Green Mountain Club. I enjoy the outdoors whether mountain biking, back country skiing or just walking in the woods. I am good at what I do and I think it shows which is why I enjoy the challenge of facilitating real estate transactions, helping buyers and sellers find common ground so that everyone comes out a winner.

    My Client Testimonials

    "Jeff was simply phenomenal to work with. We just purchased our first home so were total novices to the process, and Jeff was with us throughout the entire thing. We put an offer on our (now) home that had both tons of interest and other offers on the table; our contract was very well thought out by Jeff and he made sure that we were completely comfortable with everything in it. We ended up having ours excepted right away, and I truly don't think we would have been nearly as successful without him. He was always available to answer questions, was very thoughtful and thorough when explaining things to us, and when he needed to advise us he was always so detailed and carefully explained the pros and cons of each decision we had the option to make. On the day of closing, he was double checking on things for us that frankly would not have affected him at all such as utilities being turned on, how the locks worked etc. It meant so much to us to have him on our side during the whole process. I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed working with him. I already have, and will continue to recommend him to everyone I know that goes to purchase a new home; he is exceptional... and very funny!" Maddie Cave
    "I was extremely impressed with the manner in which Jeff carried out the sale of our property. This was a difficult sale and Jeff made it look easy. Jeff was extremely professional, detailed and diligent which eliminated any potential issues that could arise in the sale of a home. I found Jeff to be resourceful in recommending any outside party needed to complete the sale. Anyone in need of a partner to help execute their real estate transaction should sign Jeff Beattie up immediately!" Brian Tubin, CFO, JW Danforth Company
    "My boyfriend and I are first time homeowners and were put in contact with Jeff through a local search. After our first meeting we were very excited to meet with him. He took our ideas, budget, and concerns into account and provided us listings that would be a good fit. When viewing homes he was never pushy or trying to sway us one-way or another to make a sale. Jeff was very easy to work with and he provided excellent insight when we had additional questions. He was familiar with the additional contacts that we were working with (attorney, inspector, etc...) and was able to follow-up directly with them. He was present during the closing, which made us feel very comfortable, especially with the legal terms we are not as familiar with. After the closing he made sure to follow-up and made sure we were settling in comfortably. The process from start to finish was very easy - reminding us of deadlines and due dates." Jessica Couture
    "My wife and I were out of towners seeking a new home. A mutual friend recommended us to Jeff and I'm so thankful she did! On the day we met, Jeff had lined up several properties for us to visit and each of the properties met several of the criteria we had given Jeff (i.e. no duds). Jeff was helpful to us in making our selection, providing local insights and information we wouldn't have had otherwise. During the process Jeff was always attentive and responsive. I never had the feeling I didn't know exactly where we stood in the process. I will be completely candid; there were a couple of instances were Jeff and I had differences of opinion (I can be a little bit bullheaded) but in every instance, Jeff turned out to be right and I can't say that about a lot of people, but Jeff truly earned it." Steve Sims
    "Jeff has lived in the local area for years and knows it well. An active member and involved in the community, he has raised his family here. He was very personable and professional in all of our dealings with him. He made suggestions prior to listing as to what we needed to do to the house to make it more salable. He stayed on top of everything throughout the listing and the sale of our house and kept us informed and involved every step of the way. He worked closely with our attorney to ensure the closing went smoothly." Ken and Maryanne Brighton
    "Jeff was extremely patient in answering all of our questions about the home buying process and everything that goes along with it. He managed the contract timeline efficiently and ensured that we met all necessary deadlines with the sellers, lender, and attorneys. Jeff genuinely looked out for our best interests and made us feel like valued and respected clients. We would not be in our first home if it weren't for Jeff's expertise, guidance and intuition!" Kevin and Meghan Duff
    "I have worked with Jeff for over 30 years. He has the highest levels of integrity and honesty. His diligence and attention to details save clients significant time and trouble. It is always a great benefit to have Jeff involved in transactions." Alan Thorndike, Esq. Darby Stearns Thorndike Kolter & Ware
    "Jeff was The Rock of Stability in our very complicated home purchase. He not only paid attention to every detail of our contract, he moved the process forward every time a bump in the road came along and there were a lot of bumps. We are so glad that he was with us every step of the way, from our first meeting he freely shared his knowledge and his years of experience, to our closing where he spent an hour and a half with our 16-month-old daughter, so we could focus on signing our closing documents. In the end, he made the right suggestions to all involved to get us into our dream home, and at that moment, we knew we made the right decision to have Jeff as our real estate professional." Jim and Ally Osborne
    "We have known Jeff for 15 years. He was our broker when we bought our house in Stowe and when we sold it. Jeff is so easy to work with. He knows the communities in which he sells, the purchase and sale process and quickly understands the needs of his clients and how to meet them. We would recommend him without reservation." Paul Charow and Ellen Hamilton
    "Working with Jeff to conserve Cady Hill Forest was truly an enjoyable experience. Jeff's easy-going attitude is complimented by his thoroughness and creativity in getting the job done. I worked with Jeff for over a year to complete one of the most complex conservation projects Stowe Land Trust has ever done and Jeff was helpful, insightful and pro-active at every step!" Heather Furman Executive Director, Stowe Land Trust
