I was born and raised on a family farm in the little town of Coventry, where I still reside. My interests lie within my community, my family and real estate community. I am very proud and pleased to live in the heart of such a splendid place we call The Northeast Kingdom. My Real Estate profession spans some 20 years. In 2012, I was chosen Orleans County Realtor of the Year and in 2016, I was awarded the prestigious Century 21 Quality Service Pinnacle Producer Award, an honor! I have extensive knowledge of the area, its people, our customs and lifestyle. With roots firmly planted, I will always be here for family, friends, my clients, customers and the real estate community.
Here's what our satisfied customers are saying about Lyell:
We were in excellent hands with Lyell Reed, who worked with us to find the perfect Vermont getaway. He is deeply knowledgeable about the Northeast Kingdom and went above and beyond, showing us not only potential properties but also all the year-round amenities the NEK has to offer. Lyell also perfectly prepared us for making an offer, negotiating the agreement, and getting us to closing. If you're buying or selling in the NEK, we'd highly recommend Lyell and the team at Century 21 Farm & Forest.

Lyell Reed worked through months of negotiations for us. We purchased from out of state and Lyell had to deal with all the on-site issues. He's been most resourceful even when faced with the most tedious buyer-seller issues. We had the surprise of welcoming our new baby much earlier than expected and couldn't be there for the final negotiations but Lyell made everything go super smoothly. Lyell really held our hand through all of it! Highly recommend him as an agent and we'll definitely go to him again for any further selling/purchasing for sure!

Lyell Reed is the BEST!!! He has helped us to sell, then buy and sell again!!!!! Always there when you need him and makes a difficult process actually fun. On his suggestion we used the Century 21 Farm & Forest truck in moving and it saved us a lot and Travis (who helped us move) was terrific. Lyell will help us find another gem in VT soon.

Lyell was our broker when we bought the property at Dashner Drive and he became a friend as well as our agent. He was very professional & knows the business very well. We had all the faith that he would get us the best deal as he did when we purchased the house. If anyone asks about needing an agent, we always refer them to Lyell. He is absolutely sincere & doesn't act like a normal salesman in the sense that he doesn't just tell you what you want to hear. He's also there with important information you need to hear and is eager to find out something if he isn't sure of the answer. You could call or e-mail him and if he was busy with another client he would let you know & get back to you as soon as he could. Otherwise, he responded immediately to any form of communication. He is someone after you meet him for 5 minutes you feel as if you had known him all your life, like an old dear trusted friend. From the day we talked to him about listing our property he was already working on his advertising set-up so when we actually signed the paperwork that evening, the very next morning he had all his ideas in motion. It wasn't even 2 days and we had people interested in our house and he was always in touch with us with anything we might need to do to help sell it.
