    Claire Kavanagh

    Realtor, Buyers' Agent


    Claire Kavanagh grew up in New Jersey, but moved to Vermont while obtaining her Bache- lor’s Degree in Psychology at the University of Vermont. Although she didn’t know it at the time, Claire fell in love with Vermont and everything it has to offer. Craving warmer temps post college, Claire took a position as a legal assistant on the Pacific coast, but after 6 years in sunny San Diego she decided to pack her bags and head back East. Her first stop was New York City where she continued her career helping the public, but it didn’t take long for her to realize that she still didn’t quite feel at home. Claire followed her heart back to a life in Vermont and into a career as a Buyer’s Agent in Real Estate. In her role as a Realtor® Claire combines her background in psychology with her passion for Real Estate. Having lived in the Burlington area for over a decade she brings her knowledge and love for Vermont to her work in helping home buyers find their ideal home. Claire believes that having the right conversations is a key factor in successfully helping homebuyers choose the right home. It is through open communication and careful listening that she is able to develop a foundation of trust, and in turn create strong, long-term client-agent relationships.

    Listing Specialist, Realtor

Prior to joining the Malley Group, Dianne owned her own small business while also raising her two daughters here in Vermont. She has discovered, through her own experiences, the value of understanding and honoring cultural differences, and has harnessed this practice as a tool to better serve her clients. Before starting a career in real estate, Dianne focused on community engagement in her role as a fitness instructor and Senior Program Director for the YMCA in Burlington. Dianne brings an open, friendly personality to the table; combine that with her determination and ability to connect through direct communication and you have a valuable asset to any successful real estate plan.
