Mary Mitchell Miller Real Estate
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 is in her fourth year on the Board of Directors of the Vermont Association of REALTORS, a past president of the South Central Vermont Board of REALTORS(2009 and again in 2019), a past recipient of the South Central Vermont REALTOR of the Year award, and an active and involved member of the local realtor board.
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 such as the Weston Business Council, the steering committee for Weston’s new Pop-Up University (making its debut in March 2020), Neighborhood Connections, Weston Playhouse Theatre Company and she has served in many roles with her town and currently serves as Landgrove’s Town Moderator and Grand Juror.
Claudia and her husband John Wiley live in Landgrove.
Claudia was our buyer's agent when we recently bought a vacation home in Weston, VT. We live out of state and had only seen the house once and we needed a strong local guide to advise us. Claudia is extremely knowledgeable about the market in Weston and surrounding towns. She is very experienced in the local home buying process and deftly handled the negotiations for us. We had many questions and she was always very responsive and helpful. Anyone who is considering buying or selling [...]
Claudia was fantastic. Her local knowledge is unmatched and her responsiveness could not be beat. We arrived with 5 houses to see and she took our reaction and recommended what ended up being the house we bought. She was a complete pro through the closing process and continues to be an amazing local resource. We highly recommend her
I worked with Claudia this summer to purchase my dream ski cottage in VT. Claudia was responsive, and always did whatever was necessary to make sure that my timelines were met and I was happy, including even offering to give me over to another realtor as a client when she had a conflict! When it came time to make an offer and go through closing her expert guidance and advice was invaluable. She helped us to [...]
Met Claudia via Zillow and found her to be prompt and organized. Held great local knowledge and helped us find the right vacation home. Later we completed the purchase of the adjoining land. We would highly recommend Claudia Harris. She will work hard for you too.
Claudia was a pleasure to deal with. She was patient with us as we took our time throughout the process and helped us make a highly informed decision when we finally decided to buy. Being from out of the area, she helped educate us on the local market and real estate and tax laws and helped to make the whole transaction as smooth as possible. We would highly recommend [...]

It was a pleasure to work with Claudia when we found the ideal property in southern Vermont to build our retirement house.

Claudia recently helped us purchase land in Londonderry. As soon as we started working with her it was clear that she was an all-in member of our team. She had extremely insightful advice for every step of the process. She was familiar with the history of the property itself as well as the key players, which was very helpful when structuring an offer. She steadied us and [...]
Claudia was a great pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend her if you are buying or selling! She was incredibly knowledgable and realistic when it came to the sale of my home.
It is a little unnerving to purchase a home from two states away; the expertise, experience, and attitude of the realtor become the key to making the process simple and comfortable. Claudia Harris excelled at smoothing out the purchase process. She helped us out in a [...]
