We really enjoyed working with Chelsea. When we started looking for a home almost 2 years ago, we were hesitant about working with a realtor knowing we didn't want to be pressured into buying a home until the house and the timing was right. Chelsea never pressured us when we took breaks from looking for a home. She stayed in touch so we knew we could always reach out if we wanted to jump back in to house hunting. Chelsea showed us 8 homes during our hunt. As first time buyers she answered our many questions and really tried to learn exactly what we were looking for (as we looked at each home we learned more about what we wanted too!). During a more anxiety producing multiple offer situation Chelsea helped us navigate through and make critical decisions that eventually led to us becoming home owners. She was always open to answering questions and explaining the process. Chelsea's team is friendly, prompt in responding, and is all about building relationships. We would recommend Chelsea at Ridgeline Real Estate, especially for first time buyers that want extra guidance along the way.

Chelsea is the best! She is very knowledgeable about everything Vermont which was helpful for us as we are 1.5 year flat-landers. She listens intentionally and quickly learned what we were looking for in our forever home. She is the sweetest and kindness soul we could have been blessed to have help us. She started as our realtor, but became our friend!
This is my second time working with Blair, Chelsea and the whole team at Ridgeline Real Estate. Blair came out to look at the house we were selling so quickly, and gave us honest and clear advice on what would help us to get the most from our sale.
The team came to help with photos and were communicative, on time, and always professional.
Chelsea supported us with buying a new home. She was always open to going to view houses. She was able to quickly get answers we needed, and was always honest with us with any of the concerns or challenges we faced.
This team supports you in every way to buy or sell a home. They are always prepared, professional, and always make sure that you are informed, supported, and happy.
I am very thankful for all the time and effort that Chelsea and her team put into my process of finding a perfect home. Even though it took years for a picky buyer like me Chelsea was very patient and supportive throughout this time. For sale by owner transactions are not always the smoothest ones but Chelsea has been in constant contact with the sellers and handled all of the issues that came up quickly and due to this team effort we got to the finish line with no delays and closed on time. She also helped with questions that came up after the closing as well. I truly recommend working with Chelsea and her team!
We worked with Chelsea buying our first home. We worked together about 10 months. It was a tough and competitive market; sales went quick. However Chelsea was always on top of new listings for us and ready to go see homes right away with us. She was always available and very responsive. Chelsea never pressured us and always made sure we felt comfortable. I would recommend Chelsea in a heart beat.
Chelsea is simply phenomenal! Navigating the process as first-time homebuyers, we felt fully supported by Chelsea. She took the time to get to know our preferences, expectations, and limitations at our first meeting, demonstrated a clear understanding of our style, and ultimately helped us successfully navigate a multiple-offer situation. Our closing came together very quickly -- we saw the property Sunday at 1 pm and finalized our offer around 11 pm that same evening. Chelsea was absolutely invaluable in helping us put together a competitive offer, offering several tips and tricks to help us stand out. Chelsea was very communicative and made us feel very comfortable with every step of the process. We can't recommend Chelsea strongly enough!

Chelsea was absolutely amazing to work with as we purchased our first home. She has such a positive energy it really made the process a much better experience than I had anticipated. She really takes the time to understand and listen to exactly what you are looking for in a home. Her response time replying to questions you may need answered or homes you would like to see is excellent, she almost always reply’s back immediately. I would most definitely recommend Chelsea to any of my friends or family. She and her team are the best!

All I can say is that Chelsea was phenomenal! She helped me every step of the way, was communicative and forthcoming. I’m grateful she helped me purchase my first home.
Chelsea made our first time home buying process stress free and fun. We hit many roadblocks along the way and she guided us through all of them while keeping us calm and positive that everything was going to work out. Chelsea is knowledgeable, honest, extremely responsive and makes you feel like you are her only client. She listened to our wants and needs and fought for us at every turn while helping us navigate in a sellers market. We couldn’t have done this without Chelsea and her entire team. They are all professional, organized, supportive and everything you could ever want and need on your side of the real estate world. Thank you, Chelsea for making our dream come true!
Chelsea was a pleasure to work with! I'd say one of her greatest strengths is her ability to listen and decipher what the client is looking for. She takes the time to get to know you and your style/tastes. We learned a lot about the process from Chelsea, and she was there to answer questions and provide guidance along the way. She was responsive in helping us get answers to our questions and walking us through this long and arduous process of becoming a homeowner! She would also go out of her way to show us houses on a whim, which is super important in the current fast-paced housing market.
Chelsea was beyond helpful with helping my fiancee and I find and purchase our first home. She and her team were amazing in assisting us through the process, and even though there were many things that came up before closing, she guided us through every step and made sure that each situation was addressed in a timely manner. We could not have asked for a better person to help us through this first-time home-buying journey, and we highly recommend Chelsea to anyone looking to purchase a home in the area!
Chelsea helped us buy our first home! She was extremely patient and helpful with us through our grueling learning curve of buying a house. Chelsea is efficient and fast to reply to any questions or concern. She is energetic, bubbly, personable and the most positive person - which was exactly what we were looking for when we were looking for a realtor. I would highly recommend Chelsea to anyone looking to buy a home, she truly cares about her clients and finding them the perfect home, even if it cuts into her personal hours. She goes above and beyond to make sure you know everything about a house and has no problems telling you her concerns, which we really respect in this type of process. We are so thankful for her time and efforts to finding us our perfect home, we could not have done it with out Chelsea.
Chelsea helped us purchase our first home this year. She was always easy to get in touch with and was willing to go the extra mile. Whether it was nights, weekends or holidays, she was always willing to find time to show us a property or assist in submitting an offer (she worked with us to put together our offer during a holiday weekend!!). If you are looking for someone who will be by your side throughout the entire process, Chelsea and her team at the Knowles Group are the one's to go with!
Chelsea is a true professional who is dedicated to her clients. She is knowledgeable, truthful, and easily accessible. She assisted me in my recent condo purchase. On the day that I wanted to make an offer she had a serious personal situation that she put aside to assist me with my offer. She clearly didn't have to make such a sacrifice, but she did without complaint or hesitation. I would highly recommend her! She is genuinely sweet too!
Chelsea was professional, energetic and positive agent to have on our side! We were first time homebuyers and she did an outstanding job helping us navigate through new waters. She was thoughtful, quick to respond, and was a great advocate for us. I would mark her as a 10 star if I could.
Chelsea was great throughout the entire process of buying our home. She understood our asthetic immediately and was able to point us to the house we now call home! She helped us naviagate negotiations that got a little sticky, timelines during the holidays and had the best recommendations for services needed when buying a home. We always knew she had our backs and we could trust her direction and are now in our dream home!!
Chelsea is wonderful to work with! She and her team made purchasing my first property a breeze. She is knowledgeable, friendly and very hard working. I had a fantastic experience working with her!
Chelsea was super helpful in the purchasing of my first home! She was always available to answer questions or find answers if she didn’t have them. She made the process that much easier by supporting any wants/needs I had and by letting me know if I needed to do anything. Awesome to work with.
I recently worked with Chelsea on buying my first home. It was a difficult and daunting process, but I felt like Chelsea was truly in it with me! We were stymied by unresponsive sellers, so it is hard to rate "responsiveness," but I found her communications via email, phone, and text to be clear and informative. She has a knowledgeable team around her and their collaboration adds depth to what any individual realtor can offer. Most importantly, Chelsea is likable and easy to talk to. I trust her and felt that my best interest was her priority!
Working with Chelsea was a true delight ! She was always available to answer our questions and had done a good job of gathering pertinent info about any property she showed us. If she didn't know something, she always got the info quickly and got right back to us. Her follow through was very good. Chelsea was also very flexible about scheduling. We felt very comfortable with Chelsea- she is relaxed and warm with s very pleasant sense of humor. Finally I would mention she has a keen sense of curiosity and enthusiasm which make her ideal for this work. If you get to work with Chelsea, you will have s great experience!
Chelsea was great to work with during out first home buying experience! We had a very specific location we were looking to buy in and she did a great job finding houses in that area for us to look at. Whenever we had a question Chelsea was very responsive and answered all of our questions. After the home inspection, she did a great job helping negotiate with the seller regarding concessions and a few repairs. I would definitely recommend Chelsea to anyone looking to buy or sell.
Chelsea has been a wonderful support throughout our first homebuying experience. I highly recommend her as someone you can trust and rely on during the process of finding your home and eventually, in the purchase of that home. She has a wonderful team of colleague's who all work very well together. They made sure the process was smooth and answered all of our questions. We could not be happier and trust you will be happy with your decision to work with Chelsea, too! Thank you so much, Chelsea, and to your team, for making our dream become a reality. We truly appreciate all of your hardwork to ensure we didn't worry about a thing. All our best.

Chelsea is awesome! I was an out-of-state buyer during the pandemic, and she made the process of purchasing a house in VT so much easier than I could ever have imagined. She offered video showings, and her oral and written communication skills were superb, such that without ever having seen the house I bought beforehand, there were no surprises when I actually stepped into it for the first time! People couldn't believe I'd buy a house sight unseen, but it made sense when I told them about Chelsea. There were a number of issues that arose during the negotiations and period of time before closing which Chelsea handled with tact and integrity. Whenever I had questions, she answered them promptly. I was especially impressed with her technical knowledge of home construction. Her understanding of the region in general and the local market in particular was very strong. And she's easy - and fun - to work with, to boot! I can't say enough positive about Chelsea, and I would recommend her without reservation to anyone looking for an agent.
How likely is it to buy a home and it tugs at your heartstrings because you won't be able to talk to your realtor every week anymore? Well that is what happened when using Chelsea Rublee as our realtor. We live out of State and was not confident at all buying a home during Covid-19 let alone buying a home site unseen. Very honestly, because of Chelsea-would do it again in a heartbeat. The video chats were amazing, her knowledge of construction was beyond expected and her keen sense of who we were as buyers and what we wanted and needed was incredible, esp. without ever meeting us in person. The word delight comes to mind- Chelsea was just a pleasure to work with and her team of people made it a breeze to become a homeowner in Vermont. :) Could not be happier of our choice to have Chelsea Rublee represent our family as our realtor!!!
There are not enough words that can explain how amazing, attentive to detail, and personable Chelsea is. Her infectious positivity and demeanor are one of sincerity and an all-around feeling of being looked out for. She listened, and managed, three different people's wants and needs in our home finding. She took the time and personable touch to get to know each of us. In the three and half months, holidays and New Year included, she helped us find exactly what we were looking for. Being observant of the littlest details in each home viewing, prior to, helped us develop the type of place we were ultimately looking for. Cannot be more grateful for the time and dedication she put in. If you are looking for someone that is passionate, provides a cheerful smile, and helps in any way to find your next home, need not look further.
As first time homebuyers, Chelsea was a great fit for us. Prior to working with her, we had been casually looking at houses on Zillow and other similar websites with no true understanding of the process or what we were getting ourselves into. Chelsea did a great job making us educated about the home buying process, keeping us on track with the various stages and everything we needed to close on a successful home. We were pretty proactive homebuyers, religiously checking the MSR Chelsea set up for us. She always made time to show us the houses and tell us about the various features / history of information she had available to her. With her help, and a lot of luck, we were able to close on a home after working with her for less than 3 months. Chelsea was always quick to respond to our plethora of questions, and really was a great partner in our home search. Buying during such crazy times is a huge endeavor, and it was really comforting to have her in our corner.

Chelsea and the team at Ridgeline are just incredible. I'm so grateful to have had Chelsea's expertise and support throughout my search for my first home. As a first time homebuyer, Chelsea was patient and thorough in explaining new information. She was flexible and responsive. She is a wealth of knowledge, especially as a native Vermonter! Even in a wild housing market, Chelsea managed to make me feel cared for, in control, and confident all along.
I can't possibly fit enough kudos to Chelsea and the team at Ridgeline in a simple review. Chelsea provided support, knowledge, patience, and warmth every step of the way-- I wouldn't have wanted anyone else by my side while I searched for my first home! As a first-time homebuyer, Chelsea went the extra mile to make sure I understood complicated and new processes. Her native Vermonter roots helped answer so many local and regional questions. From start to finish Chelsea made sure I had all the information I needed to make the right decision with confidence. This gal knows her stuff!
Chelsea began working with us pre-pandemic to move our family back to Vermont from the Westcoast. She was incredible with communication and with being our eyes with viewing a property and thoughtful insights into mechanical systems we were unfamiliar with. When the pandemic began she moved quickly to get us in to see homes that might work for our family and even provided short-term rental options when things weren't lining up. Almost another year later, she successfully assisted in navigating the Vermont home buying process and helping us close on the home we were dreaming about. Chelsea was and is an incredible resource for buying a home and we would highly recommend her.
Chelsea is absolutely wonderful! She is patient, kind and very savvy. Buying a house is usually high stakes, but between this market and the pressure to keep our kids in their same school - we were very anxious about the process. Chelsea was available every step of the way to be the calm in the storm. We are beyond grateful for all that she did for us and I cannot reccomend her highly enough. I would choose her over and over every time.
Chelsea was wonderful - all the local knowledge, knowing who to talk to, getting me in for viewings so fast, and her responsiveness was spot on! She made the process of selling my home and buying another one so much easier. She helped me with figuring out an area to go, finding the right fit for myself and my dog, and then helping with negotiating the price and then all the little things came up with buying. Having Chelsea help me was priceless for me!
We were lucky enough to be able to work with Ridgeline to sell our home as well as purchase a new one. We worked directly with Chelsea Rublee and she was nothing short of perfect. She was incredibly professional and always responsive to our questions. As we were still pretty new to the process, she helped us step by step and always had our best interests in mind. She did a wonderful job staging our home and and explained every offer to us. We couldn't have been happier. When it came to buying our new home, she really went above and beyond what we expected. As the housing market was going a little crazy, she showed us detailed reports of every house we looked as at well as other houses that had recently sold in the area. She explained the things we should be looking for and things we should avoid. Again, she had our best interests in mind. Her hard work allowed us to make knowledgeable and reasonable offers that we were comfortable with. Even when we were under contract, she was there each step of the way. We couldn't be happier with Chelsea as well as the entire team at Ridgeline. Although we don't plan on buying a new home anytime soon, we are looking forward to hopefully getting to work with her again in the future.
The experience selling our home with Chelsea was seamless, I can only imagine the work that was going on in the background. We came to her with a big ask to sell and close on our home in a month, and she made it happen. As soon as we said 'go' her team was by our side making sure the home was being seen on multiple platforms, fielding interest, showing the home, organizing offers and providing professional advice. Allowing us the emotional space to make some big decisions. Her support and comforting perspectives lasted through the signing, continuing to empathize with us that selling/buying a home is a big deal! Our relationship with Chelsea is one I know I can turn to again! Thank you Chelsea, Thank you Ridgeline!
Chelsea is amazing. We moved to Vermont from Colorado after a job relocation and knew nothing about Vermont real estate nor the Burlington area. We wanted a home with some land and enough room to start a family, which Chelsea heard and made come to fruition. While we were packing up our CO home and getting ready to move, Chelsea was going to home showings and taking videos of the homes to send our way. She gave us her honest opinion about the homes she visited and the areas where they were located. At the end, she helped us find the perfect home for us and we couldn't be happier :)
Chelsea Rublee was absolutely amazing! From the first consultation- she was prepared with many comps and presented a well thought out strategy to list my home and get it sold. She had a reasonable price that she recommended based on the comps, which ended up working out very well. At first, I was a little concerned about how aggressive the timeline was, her plan was to have all offers on the table within a week. Two days after our first meeting she had a professional photographer come out and Chelsea staged the house extremely well to let it shine. On day 3 the listing was live and on days 4-6 (Fri-Sun) were all the showings (25+). Sure enough she knew exactly what she was doing and it couldn't have gone better- we had 4 amazing offers to chose from that Monday! It truly was a pleasure working with her, everything was so smooth. She really did all the heavy lifting, contacting appraisers, fire marshals, etc. Chelsea really made life easy though a stressful time. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell their house.
We are so grateful we connected with Chelsea Rublee at Ridgeline Real Estate. We were very casually looking for a new home and wanted to stay within Chittenden County. We knew we were outgrowing our current home and were going to need more space inside and outside and even though the market was so unpredictable and prices were so high we decided to start the search process. Flash forward a few months and we had our second child and it became clear pretty quickly we needed a new home. We were not the easiest clients as we had a lot of specific things we were looking for, in a market that was really competitive. Chelsea was incredible. She communicated to us all days and hours. She was honest with us about her experience and professional opinion. She was trustworthy and it is clear that she had our best interest at heart and she truly wanted us to find the right fit, no matter how long it took or how many weekend messages or showings. We finally found the perfect house while we were visiting family in Florida! She sent us videos of the home and we made offers back and forth while at a distance. We trusted her opinion and expertise so much that we bought a house without even seeing it in person! Chelsea has been just so pleasant and lovely to work with and I recommend her to anyone.

Chelsea was recommended to me by friends for my first home purchase. As someone fairly new to the state, Chelsea was great at offering insight on the areas I was searching. From the beginning, Chelsea was always quick to respond to my questions, update my search criteria, and schedule property viewings. She made the closing process a breeze by keeping me well informed of what I needed to complete and of the inspection status. I’m incredibly happy with her service and would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
