first contacted Chris in 2012, when I was living in MD and knew that eventually I'd be making a career transition into agriculture and farming and wanted to buy land to start a farm near Burlington VT. He took my husband and I to visit a parcel of land he had listed despite heavy snow, not  knowing us and more importantly, not knowing that it would take another 3 years until my husband and I would finally make the jump to move to VT and buy our dream property. During those years we made several trips north and each time scheduled a visit to the greater Burlington area so that we could check out more land and houses. Chris was ALWAYS willing to appease us, ( mostly me) to take us all around to various listings, many of which he had familiarity with having been in the real estate business for so long. His background in Soil Science and extensive knowledge of the different VT towns was tremendously helpful in helping us narrow down applicable places based on what I had envisioned my farm would look like. He has a great sense of humor, and works quickly and diligently on the client's behalf to get you what you want. As a native of VT and long time real estate agent, Chris Von Trapp is the ideal person to assist you in realizing your dream home.

Chris helped me purchase a seasonal home in Quechee VT. We had spent earlier time searching for a year round home but Chris helped me transition my real estate plan to what would turn out to be a better custom plan to fit my needs. Triangulating to find the best proximity to ski facilities,  historical attractions, medical facilities, retail centers, major roads and family members that fit my needs was challenging, but Chris guided me to the best spot for me. Having lived outside of the cold north for many years, I found his knowledge of northern construction standards and utilities equipment very helpful. Chris is very personable and responsive and managed the needs of this needy buyer very well.



Without Chris, his patience and fantastic humor I wouldn't be living in my dream home. He was more patient with the process of searching and looking than I was. Over the months we worked together, he got to know my tastes so well that when we walked into what would be my new home, he instantly said out loud "This is it. This is your home." He was right. He's fabulous. I so recommend him and will use him again and again. Call me and I'll tell you in person.”

“My family has used Chris three times in the past decade to purchase and sell residential property. He is easy to get along with and has a great knowledge of the Champlain Valley real estate market.”

“My wife and I have worked with Chris on 10+ transactions over the last decade. The fact that we keep turning to Chris time and again says it all.”

“Since buying our first house with Chris in 1997, my husband and I have bought and sold eleven properties with him through our real estate holdings company which we started in 2001. We currently have two additional listings with Chris with more on the way. He is an excellent Realtor and an honest, hardworking professional with a great instinct for both people and business. We've recommended him to friends and business associates several times. Most recently a friend of mine said, "What a great find! Thanks for recommending him. He far surpassed the other agents we interviewed in the area."

“Chris has been a great asset and comic relief for me for over 10 years as my real estate agent. He's as honest as they come and only gives real advice. I've met many agents in my seven years buying and selling real estate, and Chris is one who can be trusted and with whom anyone can enjoy working.”

Chris von Trapp is a rare find. He is a real estate agent with extensive knowledge, patience, professionalism and humor. Chris was not just willing, but genuinely happy to show me anything I had an interest in and he knew the property well when we arrived. Chris does his homework. His patience with me was impressive. I was "driven" to find my long term home as I had moved 6 times in 15 years. He was understanding and frankly, fabulous. No pressure, no hype, just a really nice, hard working professional. All this, and a great sense of humor! I am looking for land currently, and he is my only choice in the area for an agent. I know this might sound odd, but it he's a bit busy, I'll wait!
