The pandemic’s impact on the way we do business is extensive and in many ways it is permanent.

Collaboration, trust, and growth exemplify our culture. It is important that our people know that the work they perform is meaningful, rewarding and has a positive impact on their lives and on the lives of others.

I once read a quote about leadership and how leaders don’t set out to lead, they set out to make a difference. Nothing could be more true about how we at IPJ Real Estate, feel about the difference we try to make in our community. What we’ve learned about our community, and the people who live here, is that it’s an incredibly supportive and caring place. We feel incredibly grateful to live and work here, sharing in a locals-lifestyle supported by Middlebury College staff and faculty, town offi cials, police and fi rst responders, and by our teachers. We also fully recognize that the support we are able to provide (both fi nancially and through volunteerism) comes full circle. We understand that our leadership position in the community goes well beyond real estate statistics; that our true role in this community is to do what we can to make it a better place to live, work and play. ~ Amey Ryan, Owner/Broker
Like just about everyone in Vermont, we started with two people in a pickup truck,” Sean Flynn said of Silver Maple Construction in New Haven. “Then it was three people in a pickup truck doing residential construction. And now, almost 15 years later, we are 50 people, in a number of pickup trucks.”
Those vehicles advertise “fine home building and expert renovations” below the company’s leafy logo. “What it should say is: ‘Fine home building, expert renovations and the impossible,’” said 42-year-old Flynn, a New York native who came to Vermont by way of a job in the Adirondacks. “We get asked to do a number of very out-of-the-ordinary projects — unique and challenging things.”
