About Nicholas

I entered the Real Estate business in 2000.  I practiced during the summers while attending the University of Vermont, where I graduated with a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering Management. Post-college I traveled around the U.S. and worked as a handyman mainly in Colorado and Alaska. I learned to appreciate the beautiful Northeast Kingdom where I grew up and decided to come back to the family business and I am now a Managing Broker.  I married my long time sweet heart, Megan, in July of 2012, and in November of 2013 we welcomed our first son,  Brock, into our lives.  In 2015 we completed our family of four with our beautiful daughter, Brynn.  I enjoy outdoor activities such as hiking, hunting, soccer, riding ATVs, snowmobiling, skiing and snowshoeing.  I was the 2012-13 Orleans County Board of Realtors President.  I was also named Orleans County Board of Realtors 2009 Realtor of the Year. Our top producing team would be honored to assist you in any of your real estate endeavors!


We had a fantastic buying experience with Nick - could not recommend him more! ~ Emily Hughes
Century 21 Farm & Forest exceeded our expectations.  We clearly recommend Nick as your future sales representative.  Nicholas Maclure stepped in and handled issues without hesitation, provided clear communication and was timely in communicating future events concerning the closing. ~ Galen & Greta Scott
Nicholas Maclure is a truly genuine and caring person.  He was attentive to my personal interests and fears during the process of selling and purchasing real estate.  I would highly recommend him to anyone wishing to purchase a new home or to sell an existing home.  ~ Cindy Chaffee
Nick was a pleasure to work with.  He was always on top of any issues.  He never missed a deadline or meeting.  Always professional and ready to answer any questions. ~ Jillian Charles, Irasburg, VT
We worked with Nick before and were very pleased with his attention to details, local knowledge and accessibility.  Nick is not only very professional as a broker but also very helpful when it comes to issues outside the "normal" business process, i.e., helping to find the right places in the local community.  I would recommend Nick based on his professional attitude and personality. ~ Judith & Peter O.  
Nicholas went above and beyond to sell my mother's real estate with respect to all of her children.  He was extremely courteous and professional.  ~ Jean H.
If you're looking for a broker of high character, coupled with a heavy dose of patience and work ethic, Nick Maclure is the agent to represent you.  Nicholas Maclure was a pleasure to work with when both selling our previous home and assisting us in the purchase of our next home.  Nick is respectful, timely and knowledgeable.  I would recommend Nick to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home.  He is easy to work with and our family found success with Nick when selling our home and acquiring a different home in a new community.  ~  Joseph & Amanda
Nick answered all of my questions as we went through a wide variation of possibilities in terms of home interests.  He was incredibly patient and friendly with his advice, and was willing to acknowledge his limitations, which reinforced my trust in him.  Even though he was not our buyer's agent, he was still very attentive to our questions and needs, and I felt that he wanted to make sure we had enough information to make an informed decision on buying a home.  My wife and I could not have asked for a better home-buying experience, and knowing that Nick was involved in the process gave us peace of mind.  Thank you.  ~ Sam & Bridget
Nick worked really hard for us, showing after showing, and following up on all issues...Nick was a trooper from start to finish guiding us through the process.  Bringing us offers and offering well thought out and good advice.  Due to his charming personality, eagerness to assist, attention to detail & willingness to go the extra mile, I have asked him to help me find another piece of property & recommend him to anyone who asks for a good Realtor in Northern Vermont!  ~ Lynn Thorpe, Massachusetts
I would like to recognize with this letter the terrific work that Nick Maclure did helping us with the purchase of our home in Westmore in October 2007.  Nick was a genuine pleasure to work with and I asked him if I could do this letter as a kind of testimonial.  My wife and I had visited VT annually for many years but had never bought a home in the state before.  We visited the Westmore house several times with Nick but after that all of our communication was by long distance phone calls and emails.  Nick was exceptionally responsive and prompt.  He was great at scheduling phone calls when needed & kept us in the loop throughout the negotiations he conducted on price & then the subsequent closing preparations.  Nick's negotiations on our behalf merits special mention.  He prepared comparables for us & reviewed them in detail with us.  He gave us his best estimate of our good price that was significantly below the property's asking price.  The negotiation was slow because of the large difference at the start in our offer compared to the seller's price.  Nick was terrific at staying in touch with the sellers' Realtor & not ending discussions.  There were days when I despaired, but Nick stayed focused in his pleasant but persistent way.  In the end we bought the home for exactly the price Nick laid out at the start of the price negotiations three weeks earlier.  Nick, after the closing, helped us greatly with the names of local lawyers, bankers, repairmen & insurance agents.  As we are new to the area I cannot overstate how helpful these references were.  We would not hesitate to use Nick again should we buy property again in Northern VT. ~ Robert S. Ford, Ambassador of Algiers
Nick did a great job as our realtor!  He went out of his way countless times to help us in whatever way we needed.  He was more knowledgeable about the entire home buying process than any other realtor we've dealt with in the past.  We would definitely use Nick Maclure again in the future and recommend him to others. ~ The Kirkpatrick's
When I decided to purchase a house in Newport, VT, there were a lot of factors to consider from the location & property size to the style of home.  The one thing that surprised me was the job of finding the "right real estate agent" to help me with my purchase.  I discovered that finding a home was not easy for I had to find a place that would fit me and my lifestyle.  After speaking with a few real estate agents in the Newport area, I felt that they would sell me "any house".  But Nick Maclure took a different approach...he took the time to know exactly what I was looking for and found the perfect house that suited me.  I am extremely pleased with the entire purchasing process that Nick guided me through.  From the initial visit to the house to the closing date, Nick gave complete and accurate information about the house.  If he didn't have the answer I always received an email within a few hours with the response he obtained from the seller.  I would recommend Nick Maclure, to anyone who is looking to purchase a home in the Northeast Kingdom for purchasing a home can be a very stressful life changing experience but Nick turned it into a pleasant one. ~ Nancy Valcourt

I purchased my first home in December 2010.  Nick was there throughout the entire process; he always acted in my best interest and made me feel comfortable every step of the way.  He was a great liaison between all parties involved.  He never hesitated to contact the appraiser, lawyer, seller's agent or even the lender to help keep the process on track.  He always listened to my questions and concerns and was willing to go out of his way to help me better understand the buying process.  Nick is a great Realtor.  He cares about the people involved and not just the job. ~ Diane Dupuis, Senior Accountant at Jay Peak Resort
Dear Nick:
Today you closed on the sale of my home and property in Craftsbury. This was a transaction that became an amazing feat on your part given the complex real estate market. This home was on the market for a year before I listed it with you. Almost immediately there was buyer activity and eventually an offer that worked. In less than five months you moved a beautiful property that had no offers for over a year. Throughout your handling of this property you were always level-headed, creative, and completely professional in your handling of the listing.  We are very grateful to you for your diligence and excellent results. You must be the top real estate agent in Vermont.  I would strongly recommend you to any buyer or seller as a competent, hard working, and results oriented broker. ~ David C. Niklaus, Falmouth, Maine
Nick made our entire purchase a breeze.  He not only answered our questions about the property quickly, he went above and beyond by doing additional research giving us the full depth and breadth of each point we asked about.  His professional style and friendliness made us feel welcome and confident that all the details were properly attended to.  He completed all the purchase documents in a timely manner to meet our tight schedule and patiently walked us through the forms explaining each part of the contract.  He saw us through from our initial contact all the way through closing.  I would highly recommend Nick to anyone who is looking for a competent and professional to help them meet their property needs. ~ Bob & Kim, VA
I sold my house recently after five years of a very tough real estate market. The past couple of years Nick Maclure, Century 21 Farm & Forest, was my agent whom I came to trust and depend on for sound advice. He was most generally available when I needed him and if not was always prompt in getting back to me. I would recommend Nick to anyone needing a dedicated agent. ~Michael Ladd  Glover, Vt
Century 21 Farm and Forest Realty, specifically Nick Maclure, was able to sell our parcel in a timely efficient manner.  Always keeping us in the loop (over 500 miles away) and with a thorough understanding of the market we were able to get our full asking price.  Nick walked the buyers, also out of state, through the process and settlement was a breeze.  Would most definitely use Nick again!  Thank you Century 21 Farm and Forest Realty.  ~ Andrew and Robin Ishak.
