Dora Dernavich is known as a calm and peaceful presence during the exciting but often stressful process of home-buying or selling. Pairing her knowledge and thorough work ethic with a helpful and patient demeanor, Dora guides clients through every step by offering reassurance and perspective. She believes developing a strong rapport and trust with everyone she works with is the key to a successful transaction — and in business in general. To her, this business is about helping and educating others. Your priorities are her priorities.
Dora works with buyers and sellers and has helped over 120 families successfully move from or to a new home. Dora holds the ABR® designation as an Accredited Buyer's Representative and is also Smart Home Certified. In 2021 she received the International President's Circle award, placing her among the top 7% of Coldwell Banker agents worldwide. In prior years she has also been nominated for Best Real Estate Agent in the Seven Daysies awards and was a Rising Star Award Recipient from Vermont Business Magazine in 2018.
In 2020 she expanded her business to include a licensed REALTOR Assistant, Leah Eide. Together they provide client-focused services, and their collaborative efforts ensure that their clients are taken care of around the clock, while still being able to each enjoy a healthy work-life balance.
When Leah Eide came to UVM, nearly twenty years ago, she immediately fell in love with the energy and ambiance of the arts, the outdoor life, and the people and has called Vermont home ever since. Greater Burlington provided Leah with the lifestyle and network to pursue her passions in culinary art, wine, and herbalism. As a sales representative for Urban Moonshine and assistant manager at Hen of the Woods, she has developed trustworthy managerial, customer service, and communication skills.
Embracing all that makes Vermont a special place to live, along with her joy and reward of working with people is what lured Leah to work in real estate. She possesses a deep understanding of the grounding and joy a home provides for a family.
