George Bambara's passion for real estate began in 1985 in Glen Ridge, New Jersey where he and his wife purchased a co-op in need of work. As George puts it "we like busting up old houses." From New Jersey, they made their way to the North Shore of Boston where they purchased and renovated an antique house, making it something special.

The winter of 1996 was when George, and his family began weekend commutes to Stowe Mountain Resort, aka "The Mountain". In 2001, after several years of "seasonal rentals", they bought a ski in/ ski out condo and began another project!

After a decade of weekly treks to Stowe from Manchester-by-the-Sea, the Bambaras decided it was time for a lifestyle change ... they moved to Stowe!

By the time they finished the condo remodel, George was finishing a career as Vice President of Sales and Marketing for an international machinery manufacturer. George took his interest in real estate in a new direction and became licensed to sell it!

George enjoys snow boarding, sport fishing and fly fishing. Recently introduced to skeet shooting, he hopes to soon break a score of 12. Undaunted by skeet shooting and fly fishing, George can frequently be found with his head under the hood of his '95 Range Rover. In addition to volunteer coaching Stowe's elementary school students in the "Friday Program", George is an active snowboard instructor at Stowe Ski and Snowboard School.

George has a BA in Business and Economics from Saint Anselm College with 30 years experience in sales and marketing.

Exceptional Service, Distinctive Properties...

A decade after moving to Vermont, Sharon has become a vital member of her community and a strong advocate for the industry she so loves. Mentored by Pall Spera, she has developed a reputation for exceptional service, extensive market knowledge, and is known for her integrity and attention to detail. As a result of serving as both secretary and president of the Lamoille Area Board of Realtors, Sharon developed a broad network of colleagues, increasing her reach throughout central and northern Vermont. A sincere investment in the success of her clients has created a fiercely loyal customer base. "There is no greater compliment than a client recommending me and the service I provide to someone they know... This is how I measure success."

Sharon relocated to Vermont on a full-time basis in 2002 but first vacationed in Vermont as a child - in fact she learned to ski here. Her commitment to maintaining a healthy lifestyle balance is helped by enjoying the wide variety of outdoor activities Vermont has to offer with her husband David and their two dogs. As in her professional life, her favorite aspect of living in Vermont is its people. "We have a great mix of people here - the relaxed visitors enjoying their leisure time, and those who live and work in our communities." In the autumn of 2012, her son Brydon Beasant moved to Stowe from San Francisco to join Sharon's practice, extending a family commitment to serving the needs of their clients.

"I am lucky to have a deep passion for what I do. I love this business... I never tire of learning about people's lives and families, and work hard to maintain a relevant market perspective in an ever-changing industry... but my true passion lies in helping people transition with ease and move forward with their hopes and dreams."

Brydon W. Beasant recently relocated from San Francisco to join his mother Sharon Bateman in her Real Estate practice. Although his background is in finance, you could say a keen sense for real estate is a family tradition, dating back to his immigrant great-grandfather's belief in the importance of home ownership - in his mind, it solidified his presence and made North America his home. Though new to Pall Spera Company, Brydon is no stranger to Stowe and Vermont. He began traveling to Vermont as a child, and in fact he learned to ski here. It was this love for Vermont and an ardent belief in the importance of being near his family that brought him 'home' to Vermont in the autumn of 2012.

Rick Carrick has lived in Stowe for over 30 years and has sold real estate for almost that long. A graduate of the University of Vermont, he knows the surrounding area as well. His background in construction and design is helpful to real estate customers who want to adapt an existing property to their needs.

Rick chose Stowe because of the lifestyle it afforded. "I have lived in other Vermont towns, as well as resort communities in Utah, and none can match the recreational and cultural choices in the Stowe area. Add to that the income-producing opportunities, a consequence of the proximity to the Eastern metropolitan centers, and Stowe presents a rare Mecca for a balanced lifestyle," says Rick. He adds, "I try to do some recreational activity every day: skiing, golf, yoga, running and weight lifting are high on my list." Rick is particularly enthusiastic about Stowe and the surrounding area as a great place to raise children. "I feel that my two college age boys received an excellent education in the Stowe schools. Furthermore, when school is out, there are lots of things for them to do whether it be riding the trails in the summer or skiing the trails in the winter."

For Rick, the most satisfying transactions are the ones where there is a good fit between the buyer and the property. "Many of our buyers have no idea how achievable their dreams are," he says. "The customer needs to understand his or her goals; we, as brokers, help them realize those goals."
Bob Durand has been coming to Vermont most of his life to hunt, fish, canoe, hike and ski.

Nancy Durand owns the Vermont property many people seek when relocating to the state: a log cabin with a pond in the serene Northeast Kingdom. Her real estate experience is just as enviable.

Her fourteen plus years in banking and real estate mean that Nancy knows the ropes from both ends. As Managing Broker of the Pall Spera Company office in Morrisville, her extensive real estate education, designations such as Certified Residential Specialist (CRS), Accredited Buyer's Representative (ABR) and Certified Buyer's Representative (CBR), provide her with the tools to oversee a very busy office as well as her own very successful real estate career.

She has sold a thousand acres in rural Newark to people from Hong Kong who will conserve rather than develop the land. Other memorable transactions include two one-room schoolhouses, subsequently transformed into unique residences, a horse farm, commercial properties, resort havens and, of course, many residential properties. "The people are the best part," Nancy says. "I'm excited dealing with first-time home-buyers as well as investors seeking commercial properties."

As a single mom of three teenagers, Nancy can relate to client's needs. As a lifelong northern Vermont resident and no-nonsense broker, she can translate them into properties.
Judy Foregger brings a wealth and a world of experience to the Stowe real estate scene. Born in Budapest during WWII, she escaped to Italy with her family and conversed in three languages before immigrating to New York. Judy visited Mount Mansfield as a teenager, when a single open chairlift was the only way up. The Stowe area became her home in 1971. In those early days, Judy and husband Russ bought buildings which they restored and sold or rented. Along the way, she found her own dream home - a classic farmhouse with acreage and outbuildings, only minutes from what became the Country Club of Vermont golf course. She added golf to tennis and skiing as personal activities, twice placing as runner-up for club championship. Antiques also fit the picture. For 20 years, Judy and her husband operated a successful shop. Her career progression culminated, logically, in real estate. "I love land. I like to sell land, work with builders, sell houses," Judy says. She joined Pall Spera Company in 1986. "I see a different wind blowing into Stowe," this energetic, trend-sensitive businesswoman notes. "Young people, young families, many of them well-to-do, buying primary rather than vacation homes." Judy is a problem-solver. Problem solving helped her become a top salesperson at Pall Spera Company for the past 23 years. She draws on her longtime knowledge of Stowe, its properties and lifestyle, to meet her clients' needs.

Layer by layer, Barbara Leswing has fashioned a career in real estate from other professions, international travel and personal experience. She studied art history and languages in college, taught at a private boys school in New York City, worked for an interior design firm and lived in Japan for eight years (yes, she can converse). In 1995, Barbara and her husband tired of the fast track. They sold out and looked for a simpler life in a different place. "We tried Maine, the Rocky Mountain States - and chose Stowe. I had never even been to Stowe before," Barbara says. She met Pall Spera, bought a fabulous piece of land, built her dream house and subdivided and sold portions of her property to friends. In the process, Barbara absorbed knowledge about site evaluation, septic design and renovation. This woman had a plan. "Some things are karmic," Barbara says. "Other people from the world I come from have been attracted to Stowe." Her clientele is drawn from all strata, "I have sold some of the most expensive houses and some of the least." Cultural activities and outdoor sports, primarily snowshoeing, round out her full life. Barbara is a trained hospice volunteer as well. She calls herself organized, philosophical and an extremely hard worker. Real estate consumes her now. "I'm in this for the long haul," she says.

Her personal house building experience is extensive starting with a total remodel of their first home, then building a 34 acre family compound, and completing their third, and last home in 2013. Together with her talented builder/craftsman husband each home has had a distinctive flair. Like most Vermonters, Cubby is an outdoorswoman sensitive to Stowe's four distinct seasons.

"Certainly, the weather here can be awful sometimes but those crystal-clear days when the snow sparkles and you can see for miles have no equal. The fall colors are more brilliant than even the locals can believe. Warm summer days make me thankful not to live in the city. I will never live anywhere else."

Real estate is Cubby Momsen's chosen profession. Vermont her chosen home. Let her help you chose yours.

20+ Years of Real Estate Sales Experience

Quality of life, nature, slower pace, fewer people; Nancy Pritchard moved to Vermont with her family from New Jersey for these reasons in 1998 ... and hasn't regretted her decision.

She brought to the Stowe area formidable experience in Real Estate sales. Moving nine times in the eleven years prior to moving to Vermont, she acquired skills from frequently relocating which include sizing up people... "I get their life stories and their residential needs, then creatively match client to house."

The majority of Nancy's transactions have been in single family and second homes in Morrisville and other Lamoille County towns. Almost nothing deters Nancy from showing a property: She has hiked in over an unopened road, paddled in by boat, faced snow, mud and once - a live snake.

"I love people, I love houses, I like to sit quietly by the water," Nancy says.

Although she was born on Cape Cod, Heather considers Vermont her true home. Raised farming, she has learned a great respect for the land and for hard work! On her own, at the tender age of 15, she worked on a farm in Stowe, as she completed High School. After marrying a local Stowe boy, and having her first son, Heather began working as a Chiropractor's Assistant. Her duties were not only to provide different healing modalities directly with the patients, but she was also the Office Manager. She remained in this field for nearly 13 years, before she opened her own massage therapy clinic in 1997. Heather attended the Vermont School of Professional Massage, and quickly grew her practice, which she still runs part-time.

Her combination of strong farmer's work ethic, compassion and understanding of people's needs, and her love of the area, help her find just the right house or land for her Real Estate clients.

Now that her two boys are grown and have flown the nest, Heather has joined Pall Spera Company Realtors to begin the next chapter in her Life. She intends to put as much effort and enjoyment into her Real Estate transactions, as she did raising her two children and running successful businesses!

Pall Spera connected with Stowe in the 1960s - on skis, like many of his clients. "It felt like home," says Spera, who grew up in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina. After school he was drawn back to Stowe. "Vermont was a wonderful frontier," real estate-wise.

Not for long. Spera - who is also keen on architecture and remodeling -- recognized Stowe's potential for second homes as well as relocation properties for families exchanging urban existence for the wholesome, outdoorsy Vermont lifestyle.

Spera purchased the Gale Farm homestead, circa 1832, on the Mountain Road and, in 1969, opened his first office in its farmhouse. Now the company operates from three offices, each with a distinct Vermont style.

Stowe looked different in the early 1970s. Trademark chalets and gingerbread cottages would soon be eclipsed by lodges, saltboxes, updated Vermont farmhouses, condos and, finally, luxurious retreats comparable to the finest in Europe and North America.

Vacationers need services; Spera has also been involved in commercial and residential development, always with an eye to preservation. The Vermont Land Trust and other conservation organizations count on his support.

In fact, Spera's CV lists numerous memberships in state and national associations, including past-president of the Vermont Association of Realtors and Regional Vice-President of the National Association of Realtors.

Success has not deflected what originally drew Spera to Stowe; he skis downhill and cross-country; he golfs, snowshoes,and enjoys an afternoon of fly fishing. He has shown properties by helicopter ("A real James Bond experience," he says) and sold homes to celebrities (no names; Stowe respects their privacy). Current listings include an historic Main Street commercial building; also, a successful graphic arts business with choice real estate and country acreage. Spera has hidden luxury residences on summits overlooking Stowe Village- even a 120-acre family compound with horse barn and its own golf course.

Just about everyone in Stowe knows Pall Spera. After watching his chosen home town grow for many years, he is anxious to share his expertise with you.

Bidi is a graduate of Oxford University and the London School of Economics. A former barrister-at-law; journalist; CEO Home Builders Assoc. of the Low Country; Ex. Dir of English Speaking Union; a world-wide traveler and resident of Vt. since 1975. Her favorite hobby - selling homes to nice people!
Sherry Wilson knows reams about Vermont, from many perspectives. Her great-grandfather built a summer cottage in Colchester in the early 1900s which was still in use when Sherry was growing up. She learned to ski on Mount Mansfield. After college she graduated to happy young ski-industry jobs, part of a veried resume that included nanny to a globetrotting family and managing Stowe's Edson Hill Manor.

"I've never had a 9-to-5 job but I have had four jobs at once," Sherry says. She also experienced the thrill of selling a ski lodge where she had worked for food, lodging and $25 per week. "I backed into real estate (at another agency), as a gofer, a tour guide who knew the area, and a secretary who couldn't type. This was all good training." Sherry joined Pall Spera Company in 1993. Her longtime residency provides clients with historical perspective. When a house comes on the market Sherry knows its chronology, renovations and urban legends. Her hospitality skills provide the desire to serve clients -- patiently, if necessary: "I've had one client since the early 1980s. He still hasn't bought anything but I'm sticking to it."

Sherry appears relaxed and confident in her profession and extremely knowledgeable about her surroundings. "Here in Stowe there's still a core of people with the ski-bum mentality, who came and stayed," she says. Those just arriving will benefit from her experience.
