Barbara Trousdale, CDRE

Thank you for contacting us. Our team will reach out promptly.

Location: South Burlington, VT

A licensed Realtor® since 2003, I represent Buyers and Sellers with one of the largest assets in their portfolio. Having earned the coveted Divorce Real Estate Expert certification, I possess the knowledge, skills, experience, education and training to represent family law clients as a neutral third party in complex real estate transactions.

Based on my training as a Mediator through the National Association of Realtors, along with my vast experience in chairing the Professional Standards Board, I am extremely proficient in facilitating conflicts and in assisting parties reach a resolution in what is often a complex legal or real estate matter.

My participation in a local chapter of Collaborative Divorce and membership in the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals has resulted in additional training which has given me the skills necessary to help families navigate through changes in their lives.

As a Notary Public appointed by the Vermont Secretary of State since 1995, I serve the public as an impartial witness in performing a variety of official fraud-deterrent acts related to the signing of important documents.
