Mary Mitchell Miller Real Estate has been working with buyers and sellers of southern Vermont real estate in the tri-mountain area between Okemo, Bromley and Stratton ski areas since 1972. We are a full-service real estate brokerage firm specializing in the sale of fine homes and properties in Weston, Londonderry, Peru, Landgrove, Dorset, Manchester, Andover, Ludlow (Okemo Mountain), Mount Holly, Stratton, Winhall and Windham. Licensed in Vermont.
Born and raised in Landgrove, Vermont, Claudia first joined Mary Mitchell Miller Real Estate in January of 2001, working with long-time family friend and mentor Hilary Chalmers in Hilary's mother's namesake real estate business in Weston. Claudia bought the business from Hilary and Alan Chalmers in early 2005 and the firm continues to be regarded as one of the best small, independent real estate brokerage firms in Southern Vermont.
Claudia graduated from the Taft School (1983) and the University of Vermont (1987) with a Bachelors of Arts degree in Political Science. That degree first took Claudia to Washington, DC, where she worked in the public policy arena for 14 years before following her heart and soul back home to Vermont. When she left Washington to get back to her roots, Claudia realized that working as a government relations consultant/analyst was going to be a challenge from the not-yet-wired hills of Vermont, and she began to think of her next move. She hails from a long line of realtors/builders and her interest in real estate took hold and the rest, as they say, is history.
Claudia has served as a Director to the Vermont Association of REALTORS Board since 2017 and is a past president of the South Central Vermont Board of REALTORS (2009 and again in 2019). In 2022, Claudia was named the South Central Vermont REALTOR of the Year (for the second time), and in 2021 she received both the Vermont Association of REALTORS' and the South Central Vermont Board of REALTORS "Good Neighbor" award in recognition of outstanding volunteer and civic work.
In her spare time (is there such a thing?), Claudia is an Advanced EMT and very active with the Londonderry Volunteer Rescue Squad (LVRS). She volunteers with various community organizations ranging from her service as a Trustee to the Weston Theater Company to long-standing support for local service organizations like Neighborhood Connections, the Neighbors Pantry (food bank). She has served in many roles with her town and currently serves as Landgrove’s Town Moderator, Justice of the Peace and Grand Juror.
Claudia and her husband John Wiley live in Landgrove.
"Claudia is a true professional and an amazing partner in the home buying process. She was extremely helpful in navigating the appraisal process during a period very high demand. If you are buying or selling in southern Vermont, Claudia will help you achieve your home goals.
Claudia's help was invaluable during the TWO YEARS it took us to find our dream home. She was thorough and professional throughout. She took the time to get to know us in order to better help us find the perfect home for us. Cannot recommend highly enough.
"Last year my wife and I decided to relocate from CT to Vermont which seemed like such a monumental task given all of the restrictions and problems created by Covid. Fortunately for us we had Claudia Harris at the helm who was instrumental in helping us find and purchase the right property for us. From doing virtual tours to showing us properties in person, Claudia made the whole home purchasing experience a smooth one with her expertise and responsiveness. From start to finish, Claudia was an [...]
Claudia is the best! We purchased a home in Peru, VT and Claudia was always available for questions and to give guidance - even on her international vacation!! We highly recommend Claudia and love our new vacation home.
Claudia's representation was first rate all around. Her local knowledge is extraordinary. Combining that expertise with her extremely professional practices she helped us find our perfect Vermont home at a fair price with minimal hassles!
It was an absolute pleasure to work with Claudia in our effort to find a building lot to build a vacation home. Claudia provided us with all the necessary data for at least 20 building lots in Weston, Londonderry, and Windham VT. She was quick to answer any of our questions and was very easy to get in touch with. We felt that she cared very much about helping us find that perfect lot, which we did. She provided us with the names of local contractors that she personally knew and they all turned [...]
This is the second house that Claudia has sold for us and throughout she was professional and displayed knowledge and ability to communicate effectively with both us as sellers and potential buyers and their agents. We would highly recommend working with this personable and productive agent.
Although Claudia was the seller's agent, we found her to be a tremendous asset to us as buyers as we were purchasing our vacation/retirement home in Southern Vermont. Not being from the area, she assisted us in locating attorneys, inspectors and even an insurance agent to help us through the formidable flood insurance process, and we had absolute confidence she was acting professionally and honestly, and with all parties' best interests at heart. This was by far the easiest home-buying [...]
Our home of 42 yrs. is an amazing property but unique in many ways. Warned that this may take 2 yrs., Claudia sold it in 3mos! Notably, her skill as a photographer contributed to the speed of the sale and closing.
Claudia was wonderful to work with. She guided us through every stage of the process, bringing her thorough understanding of the local area to bear. She took the time to learn the history of the house, and worked with a photographer to capture that history and present it beautifully. She is the consummate professional and I recommend her without reservation. [...]
