Two teams affiliated with Coldwell Banker Hickok & Boardman Realty, based in Burlington, Vt., will combine, effective in January, according to an announcement this week. Carol Audette and Steve Lipkin’s teams will become the Lipkin Audette Team, with 16 agents and staff serving four counties in Northwest Vermont.
“Our two teams have been working collaboratively for over a year,” says Lipkin, who joined Hickok & Boardman in 1998. “Merging our businesses to expand the services and expertise we offer our clients is the logical next step. Members of our team will continue to provide our clients and customers with the personalized attention we are known for while benefitting from the depth of our combined experience and market knowledge.”
“Technology has certainly changed our business in ways for the better, allowing consumers even more access to market data and listing information faster,” says Audette, who has more than 30 years in the industry and joined Hickok & Boardman in 2010. “Our team has embraced technology as a tool to be more responsive and informed to what consumers are looking for—yet we haven’t allowed it to replace the personalized attention and service required when helping our clients make one of the largest purchases in their lifetime.”
“Coldwell Banker Hickok & Boardman Realty is committed to providing the best real estate resources for our clients, while supporting us to grow our business,” Lipkin says. “This firm has a proven track record in leadership and delivery of service, as exemplified by the recent celebration of their 60th Anniversary of serving homebuyers and sellers throughout Northwest Vermont.”
According to Northern New England Real Estate Network (NEREN-MLS), Audette and Lipkin were involved in 286 transactions totaling more than $119 million in sales volume from December 2017 to November 2018. As such, by combining forces, they will become their region’s top-producing team.
