Marketing Real Estate in the Woodstock VT and Hanover NH Areas

Snyder Donegan Real Estate Group is the leading boutique independent real estate firm in the Woodstock-Hanover markets with more than $60 million in listings across the Upper Valley of Vermont and New Hampshire, including a large portfolio of luxury properties, land listings as well as a wide choice of moderately priced homes across the region.  

  • Our Vermont office is located on The Green in historic Woodstock, Vermont.  
  • Our New Hampshire office is located on Main Street in downtown Hanover, New Hampshire – home to Dartmouth College. 

We are the #1 market leader in luxury property sales in the combined Woodstock-Hanover market area.  In 2017, Snyder Donegan sold more than twice the number of $1 million properties vs our nearest competitor in the Upper Valley, including all the major corporate “franchise” firms.  In total, during 2017, we sold or had under contract over $70 million in property sales.  This clearly established us as the most successful boutique brokerage in this area of New Hampshire and Vermont.  

  • We have carefully and selectively grown our team, now comprised of ten agents and support staff – plus a range of outside consulting partners that we utilize for additional marketing strategy support.  
  • We apply the same property marketing approach that we developed for our luxury properties to all of our listings - ranging in price from $200,000 to over $5 million.

Here is why we continue to be so successful:

  • Agent competence: knowledge, professionalism, attention to detail and superior client service
  • Leadership in innovative digital property marketing – with global online reach
  • Plain hard work and follow-through

Our partners and associates bring to our real estate business more than 100 years of successful global business experience combined with generations of local roots in the Upper Valley of Vermont and New Hampshire.  Click HERE to read the bios of our partners and of our associates – to understand that the team you are hiring has much broader world and business experience and successes – but have chosen to come back to and live and work in this beautiful and safe part of the world.

Snyder Donegan focuses on creating beautiful presentations of our clients’ properties with superb photography and for our luxury properties - videos and dedicated property websites.  We are sticklers about the details.  In a world where buyers are using smartphones, tablets and laptops to get their “first impression” of a property, first impressions online are critical.  

We give solid advice on how to stage your home and to make important pre-listing decisions on what finishing touches or renovations are worth it in order to achieve the best combination of net price and speed in successfully selling.  Call us: we are happy to provide early guidance.

We give expert advice on how to price your property.  Pricing is arguably the single most important decision you will make in selling your home, and you need to find the perfect balance between underpricing a home, which both speeds the time it takes to sell but also may leave money on the table, and overpricing it – which will cause it to get fewer showings and offers, and may result in the listing getting “stale” – a condition whereby potential buyers begin to wonder “what is wrong with this home, why has it not sold”?  Our advice to you is grounded in hard data: by looking at comparable homes that are on the market (and not selling) and comparables that have recently sold – showing you where the true market is for homes like yours.  

Snyder Donegan excels at innovative digital marketing.  The internet has leveled the playing field compared with the real estate brokerage business of just 5 years ago, and it goes through radical changes about every 1-2 years.  Click HERE to visit our Facebook page, or click HERE to visit our Instagram feed.  Snyder Donegan’s digital footprint is enormous – and global.  

Our strategy is and continues to be to combine closely-observed knowledge of actual buyers in this area – how and where they search for properties and how they enter the market – with the technical savvy of the best and brightest digital marketing partners – to keep our firm at the very cutting edge of digital real estate marketing in today’s ever-changing world of buyers and buying patterns.  Ultimately, real estate is a local business – properties cannot be commoditized and sold on Amazon (or Zillow).  Buyers are choosing a specific state, town, hamlet and property.  The digital approach to selling suburban homes in Wellesley or New Canaan – or a NYC coop – is far different than buying property in Vermont or Hanover.  

Again, we outsold ALL the major corporate and regional “franchise” firms in $1 million+ luxury sales in the Woodstock-Hanover Upper Valley region in 2017 – by more than double our nearest competitor.  This boldly underscores that we are doing it right, and are focused and engaged on success.  Other brokerage firms - who pay fees to a large corporate/conglomerate franchise located  in other states– hope the corporate approach works here in our unique and special part of VT and NH.  And you may ask yourself: When these large franchises have hundreds of offices and thousands of agents competing for attention within the big corporate system, how will YOUR property get any attention?  We don’t have to fight with nor answer to corporate bureaucracies.  We listen to our clients, our agents and to a range of world-class and ever-changing digital partners, and we constantly adjust and tailor our digital marketing to figure out how to most effectively and efficiently sell only our clients’ properties into the global marketplace.

We look forward to hearing from you and in helping you successfully list and sell your property, here in the Woodstock-Hanover Upper Valley region.
