Why Work With Us?
Here's what our satisfied customers are saying about us:
If you are looking to sell or buy a house I highly recommend Alison McCullough of Franzoni and McCullough real estate. 2 years before putting our house on the market I called Alison and told her of our plan, she came to our home, walked the property with us, and gave us advice and encouragement as to how to sell our home. Alison always answered our (countless) questions quickly, with good answers, and always treated our home and our space with the utmost respect. Finally Alison knew the best time to list our home, and in doing so got us a signed contract in 13 days!!! AND she found an incredible young family who love our house as much as we did. Thank you Alison for making it all happen! Andrew and Bronia VanBenthuysen
So my journey with Alison started about a year ago, I had a job offer out of state and needed to sell my home. One reason I chose Alison as my listing agent is that she could not only sell my home, but if needed could also manage rental of my home should the sale process take too long. From day one I had the feeling she was the right person to deal with, always kind and and giving solid advise and direction as well. Alison is very dedicated to her work and the people she represents. I was very impressed with the way she dealt with everything. I lived a long distance from Vermont by the time we had paperwork to tend with and she made all of that a breeze. In the end, my house sold. We met the goal and even at that point, Alison took the time to call and so graciously thank me for my part in this. I owe all the thanks to her!! I have already recommended Alison to a friend who will be selling his home soon. Alison is a great person and will not let you down. If you want to sell a home and feel comfortable about doing it, she is the one to call. You won't be disappointed!
Moving to Rutland was a daunting task, as I had no familiarity with the area. I called Alison, on the advice from a friend, and she found me 2 great rental choices, in an area with very low rental inventory. Alison was sure that all of my needs were met. She made herself available to me at all hours, by all means, and continued to talk me through the move. After moving in, she met me at my lovely new home, and welcomed me to Rutland. I can’t imagine any other realtor putting in that kind of time or personal attention. I can’t wait to use Alison to buy my forever home in Rutland!

As first time home buyers as well as being new to the area, we knew very little of the home buying process or where to begin looking. However working with Diana was an incredible experience. She made us feel as if we were her only clients (even though she had more than us) and gave us personalized and individualized service. Diana took the time to get to know us as people and what we were interested in for our first home. As we were new to the area, Diana took the time to help introduce us to the local area so we could focus our search. She was consistently available for all questions, big, small, silly or serious and provided quick responses that were detailed and supportive. Due to our crazy work schedules, she even took an entire weekend day to take us to see multiple houses and maintained her enthusiasm through them all, while helping us manage all the houses details so we didn't get overwhelmed. When we started to get in over our heads with ideas of renovations on potential homes, or taking on too much of a house for our actual needs, Diana helped reel us back in and gave us honest feedback or reached out to her connections for second opinions or estimates. We felt like not only were we working with a realtor but also a friend who cared for us and our well-being. Diana was personable, caring, supportive, has many local connections and resources available, is honest, fun, and has your back during all the fun, stressful, exciting and wonderful steps of owning a home. She is the person you want on your journey of home ownership. We couldn't be happier with the support Diana gave us, and are in our perfect first home thanks to all her dedicated work and attention.
Basically, we love you Diana!!!!
We highly recommend Alison McCullough, McCullough real estate to anyone listing their home or buying a new home she is very thoughtful, compassionate,experienced,

This past summer we had the distinct pleasure and joy of working with the Alison McCullough Real Estate firm on the sale of our home. Alison developed and executed a very professional marketing plan for selling our home, including a sound recommendation on pricing. Within days our home was being shown and we quickly received two offers. Her follow up effort on each potential buyer culminated in a signed contract within one month of listing at a time when the market was not all that robust and inventory was high.
The buyers were/are a perfect fit for our then home and property and it was through Alison’s efforts that we were matched with them. Throughout the entire process, from listing to closing, Alison was there for us. She provided valuable information on individuals and companies that one needs to complete all the details that go into selling a home and kept in constant contact with us as events unfolded to ensure that everything was going as smoothly as possible.
We feel extremely fortunate to have had the Alison McCullough Real Estate firm recommended to us and we quickly and often recommend Alison to others interested in either buying or selling a home in the greater Rutland area.

In two recent real estate transactions we were privileged to work with Alison in selling and buying a home. She puts her clients first and works hard to fulfill their need for a comfortable and affordable home. Thank you, Alison!!

My family and I have been vacationing in VT for 32 years. We have always stayed on the same lake and talked extensively about owning a home there sometime. Thanks to a lot of help from Alison that dream of ours has come true. From the moment I first contacted Alison I knew that she would make the process as easy as possible. She has a way of making you feel like she's known you forever. She answered all of the millions of questions we had and in a very timely manner. She is very professional and I am happy to say that we found a house in the beginning of August and closed the middle of October. It was that easy. Thanks to Alison and her knowledge and her professional contacts we plan on staying forever in the great state of VT. I would highly recommend her for any real estate processes.

When we made the decision to sell our house we interviewed several potential agents and agencies. What was made very clear to us by everyone we spoke to was is this was a very difficult market and it was not going to be easy. What immediately attracted us to working with Alison was her positive and upbeat attitude. While she echoed the sentiments of her peers about the market being difficult, she was able to relate to us as people and not just another listing. Alison made business personal, she took the time to get to know us and understood our situation why we were selling. Her motivation as an agent was not driven only by commission checks and stat sheets, she cared and wanted the best for us. “Because nice matters” is written on her letterhead and business cards, Alison emulated this in every interaction we had with her, it is simple, direct, and completely true. Thank you Alison for everything you did for us.
