Ingrid was such a joy to work with from start to finish. Her extensive knowledge of the market and the different regions in Vermont were an incredible asset. Ingrid listens and cares about her clients - a rare quality within the ever increasing impersonal aspects of doing business. Her kindness and professionalism extend into other aspects of the buying process as her connections were also very, thorough, helpful and knowledgeable. She went above and beyond to ensure we found the right home. It is clear Ingrid was called to be a realtor - she has a gift at working with people and finding the perfect home for her clients. We were grateful to be the benefactors of her hard work, care and expertise.

We were introduced to Ingrid through a trusted local Vermont friend and what an absolute gift it was to have her as our realtor! The housing market in Vermont is hot, and she suggested we get a pre-approval before looking and do most of our own searching based on our criteria and make a list of those we wanted to try and see. This was paramount. We were driving in from Chicago and had 3 days only to look, and covered a good area of the state. Properties were moving so fast from listing to contract. Ingrid was super communicative and set up our days with plenty of time for viewing and traveling between each listing. The days were relaxed and beautiful even in the rain, some of them. She took the time to explore some big properties along side us, gifting us with tons of information about local areas and Vermont along the way and just great conversation otherwise. Ingrid provided us a local lender who was also a pleasure to work with, an inspector we loved and immediately felt comfortable with, and even did a Facetime call during his inspection so we could join from Chicago. And, she hooked us up with our closing attorney who made an online closing super simple. We wholeheartedly recommend Ingrid to anyone looking to buy a home in Vermont. Her expertise of her years of living in Vermont, and her attentiveness listening to our specific wants and needs helped our dreams become a reality. Tommy and Drew, Chicago, IL/Calais, VT

It was wonderful to work with Ingrid. As a first-time homebuyer the process was daunting, but Ingrid helped us break it down into manageable parts and figure out a timeline of what needed to be done when. We knew she was promoting our best interests in all her interactions with the various people involved. She explained all the real estate jargon in easy-to-understand ways for us novices and kept us informed every step of the way with what was going on behind the scenes. Buying a home in the time of Covid-19 had added challenges, but Ingrid approached it all with positivity and was extremely supportive. I'm so happy Ingrid helped us get into our first home, it really started us off on a good foot to have such a great relationship with our real estate agent.

Ingrid Hedbor was the listing agent for the sale of our longtime family home. From the start we found her to be very calm and professional. She was realistic in setting the listing price and the time it would take to sell the house. She did a great job taking the listing pictures and posted the listing in print, on the internet and social media. While the house was on the market she would routinely update us about the showings. Whenever there was a question she would answer it promptly or if necessary she would consult with her fellow agents to make sure she was giving us accurate information. When the initial offer was received she guided us through the negotiation and then the closing process. We are very grateful to Ingrid for all that she did helping us through this transition in our lives. We highly recommend her whether you are selling your home or buying a new one.

Ingrid was our realtor for the purchase of our new home in Grand Isle. She was absolutely fantastic. We couldn't have had a better person for the job. Extremely knowledgeable, professional, thorough, and best of all FUN. She really did make the buying process easy and understandable. It was all pretty much stress free. If you're in the market for a home on the islands or nearby, do yourself a favor and call Ingrid.
David S. and Lauren M. - Buyers
We examined over twenty-five houses with Ingrid and we feel that we got to know her as well as she got to know us. From our first meeting her enthusiasm for her profession, which she calls “matchmaking,” was obvious as was the extent of her real estate knowledge. At times she should have been frustrated by us but she never failed to demonstrate endless patience!
Blake A. - Seller
I would highly recommend Ingrid if anyone is selling or buying a house. Ingrid made the entire process easy to understand and very smooth. This was my first time selling a home. I was nervous at first but Ingrid put me at ease and made the whole transaction seamless. If I had a question 24/7 she was always there to help. She was very patient and motivated to get me the best offer for my house.
Diane N. - Seller
I have known Ingrid for years and watched as her real estate career took off and flourished. When the time came for my husband and I to sell his mother's house there was no question about who we would turn to for help. Ingrid is thorough, organized, and knowledgeable. She is an excellent photographer and was easily able to showcase the house in its best light. The house was under contract for more than its asking price shortly after being listed, and Ingrid was both patient and helpful in the face of delays are we worked to schedule some necessary repairs. Thank you Ingrid, we couldn't have done it without you!
Dennis and Luci B. - Seller
Ingrid has the knowledge and expertise that is welcome when selling a home that has been in our family close to fifty years. She helped every step of the way and answered numerous questions so that we knew what was expected of us. Ingrid went out of her way to make sure we had documents that needed signatures especially since our computer had problems with receiving and sending. We would recommend her to anyone that is thinking of listing a home.
David G. - Seller
Ingrid helped us sell land that we inherited. She was able to get us a good number of qualified buyers and we ended up with a smooth transaction at the price we wanted. With any real estate transaction, quickly communicating offers and responses are key and she was great. Being on the other side of the country, I especially appreciated her knowledge of the local market and her advice. Highly recommended.
Chris S. - Buyer

Craig Bower - Buyer
Being a first time home buyer can be daunting! Ingrid helped us feel comfortable and confident and what we were doing. She took the time to explain everything that was happening throughout the process. All we wanted was an old farm house in the mountains and boy did she deliver! She is kind and caring and clearly loves her job. Ingrid is a fantastic human being in ever sense of the word. We were very lucky to have her as our realtor.
