About John

Many locals know John Rowe “The Picture Framer” as they trust him to preserve family memories or make artwork look just right for their home decor. But besides framing pictures for the last eight years, I have also been investing in commercial real estate and purchased a residential home as well. My knowledge of home-improvement and time spent with local contractors can only benefit a buyer and a seller. Let my artful eye and investment experience help you explore real estate possibilities in the Northeast Kingdom.


I had been looking to buy some property in Vermont for a while and had trouble getting a realtor to help me.  John Rowe was very responsive and helpful. ~ Sharon Fosbrook, Burlington

John Rowe was excellent to work with.  He went out of his way to make it as easy as possible for us to sell our home and then buy a new home.  He sold our house quickly despite it being surrounded by similar homes for sale.  He also coordinated a purchase on a new home to take place immediately after the sale.  John was friendly and honest with us.  He offered helpful insight to help us plan out the purchase of a new home that fit our budget and checked off all the ideas on our wish list.  ~ Rob Boskind, Derby

I had sent out an email asking to speak with an agent about purchasing a home and John got back to me very quickly. He answered all of my questions and was very down to earth and helpful. He was extremely positive and energetic. ~ Kate, Lyndonville, VT

John was very helpful throughout the whole process of buying and selling. I would recommend John Rowe to help sell your home and find you a new one! ~ Scott Snelgrove, Morgan

John and his associate, Lyell, worked very hard to make the purchase of my first home possible. ~ Matt Powell, Irasburg

My wife and I recently embarked upon a major move from Maryland to Vermont and with John as our realtor, closing on our new home was as simple as can be. Let me be as blunt as possible, John was the main reason that we were able to achieve our dream of moving to Vermont so quickly. He was with us every step of the way, negotiating on our behalf, answering questions in a matter of minutes, and going above and beyond at every step of the process to make sure that our transition to our new home was as easy and comfortable as possible. He is a wealth of knowledge about the area, the home buying process, and even inspectors, movers and contractors that are available in the region. We were in a bind when our moving truck arrived ahead of schedule and John even came over to help us unpack! If you are looking for what we would absolutely consider the best realtor in the Northeast Kingdom, look no further than John Rowe! ~ Bobby Walls-Thumma, Coventry, VT

I got very lucky when my property was transferred to John Rowe! He went above and beyond in the communications department and sold a house that had been on the market for a while! I would highly recommend John!! ~ John, NYC

John Rowe was so easy to talk to. He understood what I was looking for in a property. If I had any questions, he had an answer. He also made suggestions that made sense. I could call or text any time. Late evenings or weekends and he'd always answer. He went above and beyond the call of his duty. I have purchased two properties from him and currently listed another. ~ Bobbie Jo Roberts McManus

John Rowe did a great job. ~ Charles Norton

John Rowe exceeded my expectations for a considerate and well informed real estate agent. His friendly manner put everyone involved at ease and made the arduous task of searching for that perfect home more of any adventure and an introduction to community resources. ~ Marlene Hughes, Derby

John Rowe did an excellent job. I would recommend him to anyone selling or buying!! ~ Paul Baginski, Punta Gorda, FL
