T. Story Jenks is the regional manager for Eastern and Southern Vermont, and joined LandVest in 2006. He has established himself as a top broker for unique Vermont properties ranging from luxury country retreats, waterfront, equestrian and village properties, and timberland and agricultural land. Story draws on deep expertise in land planning, valuation, conservation, auctions, current use and marketing to help his clients make informed decisions and to achieve their most successful sales. Story has set record sales in the Woodstock and Upper Valley, as well as in Southern Vermont’s Mountain Region.
An accomplished equestrian, Story represented the United States at the World Championships in Three Day Eventing, and is an active member of the Green Mountain Hounds. He is a graduate of the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, and received his early training in analysis and valuation at Salomon Brothers, a New York investment bank. He and his wife, Dia, have three grown sons and have lived in their late 18th century farm for 30 years.
Story is a true professional combining a wealth of local knowledge, integrity, intelligence, and a sense of humor. Story put an impressive amount of work into our search for land and worked tirelessly to find a solution that worked for both buyer and seller. Bottom line, I cannot imagine finding a better person to work with for home, farm or land purchases!
Story and his team were professional and efficient. Their list of contacts was extremely helpful during our sales process. Communication and reports were great.
Excellent and open relationship. Outstanding insights into market conditions, and constructive discussions about implications. Felt that Story was always completely on our side, and his judgments proved to be very sound. Ours was a protracted process, but Story remained enthusiastic and unsparing on his time commitments.
Good morning Ruth and Story, We are finally settled after down- sizing from thirty-six years in our Norwich farm to our new life style in Hanover NH. As you knew it was a challenge to make such a dramatic shift in lifestyle and leave our beautiful property to explore new venues. We both want to thank you so very much for all the help and support you gave to us during the last couple of years. You both were always encouraging, honest, and so hard working on our behalf. We have not bought or sold property for many years and you made the whole experience a positive one. Your professionalism and your support system through Christies Real Estate was so helpful and far reaching. The web site was superb and most of all, you heard our concerns and questions and always tried to address them in a timely fashion with the expertise that we so needed and were grateful to have found. Your personal approach, attention to detail and willingness to be helpful was appreciated as you prepared us for each step in the process of selling our property. You made a great team. Story, you were amazing with all your attention to detail. We will continue to recommend you to any one who might need your help and please feel free to call us anytime if we can help you or your clients in any way. We hope we can get together in the future and our love of horses will bind us all. Thank you for your support of GHMA. That was a wonderful gift. Sincerely, Sarah and Steve S.
We worked with Story to find a very unique Lake Champlain property. He listened carefully to our dreams and found a true Diamond in the Rough. It had been on the market for several years and seemed under-appreciated. With work, it has met our needs perfectly. The negotiation was complicated by neighbor issues and some difficult personalities. Story was a master at keeping everyone calm and focused on a good outcome. His personal charm and negotiating skills were only exceeded by his understanding of the subtle facets of Real Estate law. He worked tirelessly for us, he made the experience pleasurable, and with his extra effort, found us a property that we'll pass on to our kids. We have not worked with a better agent!
Very matter of Story has a very subtle way of getting his point across. Very careful in what he says. No high pressure exhibited. Controls his anxieties and maintains a steady gait. He is friendly but doesn't let himself get in the way of business. A person of integrity and one who supports you in a very constructive manner. Would certainly employ him again if required.
We enjoyed working with Story. He had a strong sense of what our interests were and was very supportive throughout the entire process. He is also just a great person to spend some time with, traveling around the backroads of Vermont.
Story is a wonderful real estate professional. He is conscientious, thorough, and knows Vermont! We had a sale on our home when others are still struggling. He helped us when we were looking for another home, but to our advantage we knew the owner and made our own deal. He was pleased for us and genuinely cared about our choice. Story listens and we would recommend him to anyone looking to sell or buy.......a true Vt. gentleman!
Story is unfailingly tactful, patient, good-humored, kind, and polite even in the most trying of circumstances. We had a very rare and unusual property with a somewhat unpopular style of house on about 145 acres so settling on the right price was a challenge with nothing similar to use as a comparison. He put a lot of work into this aspect of the sale and was extremely thorough in inspecting the acreage and house and coming up with a range of possibilities for pricing as well as detailed marketing suggestions. Story found the perfect buyer in a tough market and we closed within 6 months of listing. He earned every penny of his commission and has our admiration and gratitude.
Simply the best real estate agent we have ever dealt with. My wife and I have bought and sold over 20 properties. Our property had a pond, tennis court, horse barn, guest house , main house and 100+acres. Story presented it comprehensively in writing and pictures. Excellent follow-through on negotiations and closing.
