We believe it is important that you know who our agents are. Featured this week is Patty Emery, a long time Real Estate Agent in this community. Here is a write up from Patty, explaining a little bit more about who she is:
"Coming from a family that always held a strong belief in real estate ownership and with a parent who became a real estate agent as a second career while still in her 30’s, it was only natural that I became a real estate agent too. I was licensed in 1976 and opened my own office in 1981. Real estate has had quite an evolution over the years. When I first started in the business, it was unusual for agents to have dedicated offices. Most transactions were conducted around the kitchen table or over the hood of a car. But, in 1981, I opened Hill and Valley Real Estate and built an office in my home. Still more changes occurred when I joined Parkway Realty as an owner with Maurice Chaloux and we had two dedicated offices, one in Lyndonville and one St. Johnsbury. Today, much of the paper work is done remotely and from anywhere.
I love the real estate profession. Going to work is never a chore. Each day is different and challenging. The learning has never stopped because lending, marketing and technology is always changing.
Staying involved in my community is important. It allows me to be informed and to inform buyers and sellers about what is happening in the community in which they live or are hoping to live. My involvement has led me to being President of the local board of Realtors twice and to have been chair of the state board of Realtors education committee and a past director on the state board executive committee. Since 1991 I have been a member of the Lyndonville Rotary and have served as President and director over the years. I was a 16 year member of the Lyndon State College Foundation and am a past President. For 19 years, I served as a Trustee of The Riverside School and was President of the board for several years. I am currently a Trustee at Lyndon Institute and on the board of The Vermont Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired.
Over the years, I have been fortunate to receive the Realtor of the Year award, The Governor’s award for Distinguished Service, Lyndon State College Distinguished Alumni Award and the NEK Chamber Business Person of the Year Award along with my husband, Dana.
Real Estate has enabled me to provide a valuable service to so many. I have been fortunate that my husband of 50 years and my grown and happy daughter and son provided the understanding of what my professional life required and still requires today."
