SEAMLESS. If you or anyone you know is selling a home in or around Burlington this is the only law firm to use. My wife and I got top-notch service from our initial email request to signing the closing documents. I highly recommend Lisa Gale and her team. Thank you guys so much for helping us out!!
We've been working with Lisa Gale as a client for the past 12 years. During this time she has facilitated and guided us successfully through buying and selling multiple homes, plots of land and several investment properties. She is extremely thorough, very upfront and absolutely 100% trustworthy. I always sleep well at night knowing the countless details of my real estate transaction are held in Lisa's hands. I highly recommend her!
The first time that I worked with Lisa Gale was almost 20 years ago on the purchase of my first home. I did not know anything about purchasing a home, let alone a duplex. She guided me through every aspect including recommending a contact for financing. Six years ago, I ended the search for my dream home by purchasing a large farm. This time, I not only relied on Lisa for her expert retail attorney skills, but also for her contacts in the industry that could help me in other matters for the purchase of my home. She handled everything to the detail with the professionalism that kept my mind at ease. All my real estate experiences have gone smoothly thanks to Lisa Gale.
Tina and I were so glad we found Lisa Gale to represent us in the refinance of our home. We had a few hurdles to overcome. Our prior attorney had left some untied ends and the out-of-state lender we used just wasn't familiar with how things are done in Vermont. At every turn Lisa and her knowledgeable staff were there to guide us through. Her experience and skill allowed the closing to sail through and saved the incredible rate we got from the lender. Since then we have used her services on several other matters and have always been very happy with the results. I recommend her highly.
Thank you so much for everything you did to get me out of 19 Oswald Street and into the Rabbit House! I still have to pinch myself every so often to make sure I’m really living in Northfield where it is heavenly with the gorgeous view, quiet surroundings and privacy. I love it! Take good care and know that if I hear of anyone who needs your expertise, I will send them your way!
What a pleasure to work with Lisa Gale and her team at Gale and McCallister! This firm provided excellent service and attention to detail for my refinance. It was an easy and seamless process, even in the wake of this pandemic. I would recommend them to anyone looking to purchase/sell a home or refinance. THANK YOU!
Highly recommend working with this firm. They are all professional, responsive and supportive of their clients and truly make you feel like you're their most important issue at the time working with you. They are knowledgeable and have worked with us through 2 closings now, one that got very complicated and could have gone badly last minute, but they problem solved and found a working solution for both parties. We've worked with both Scott and Laura, but everyone I've encountered in this office has been friendly and helpful. We are glad we found them!
I used Gale & McAllister as my team to purchase a house. They were friendly, organized, professional and knowledgeable. They, and Lisa in particular, made the entire process very easy and were open to any and all questions I had. Would definitely recommend.
Lisa Gale was very thorough and personable and available when we were buying and selling our house! I would recommend her to anyone!
I have only good things to say about this law firm, which handled the recent closing on my house. They are accurate in their work, super prompt about returning emails, and helpful and courteous. Lisa Gale Peery represented me in my closing, and she was professional in all respects. She came to me highly recommended, and I, in turn, would recommend her without even the slightest reservation. The other people in her office are also extremely easy to deal with. Thanks, folks, for great work on your part!
I can not thank you enough for being my advocates- in the truest sense of the word. You were there when I needed you. If the need landed outside conventional business hours- you did not hesitate, you were there! You answered my questions, researched as needed and strategized to not only protect me, but to help me get to closing and buy the house. Sometimes that meant you stopped being solely about the practice of law and just listened; so you could help me pause and consider the bigger picture- in this current challenging real estate market. At the end of the day, I came away with a house. This was in no small part due to your dedication to help me in this process.
THANK YOU ALL !!!!!!
Gale & McAllister once again has surpassed all expectations and came through in a very short time frame for us to have a closing. We appreciate the hoops you had to jump through and maneuver around in order to complete the transaction.
We appreciate the time sensitive and thorough work.
We would recommend this firm to anyone or any business looking for great local attorneys at law.
PS- Marci was a pleasure to deal with on the front end.
Diane did a great job with our real estate transaction. She is very thorough, made sure that everything was done by the book so that there were no last minute hiccups with closing. We were kept informed every step of the way and she responded immediately when I had questions or concerns. Rates are very reasonable as well. Highly recommend!
It’s been awesome working with Denise at Gale and McAllister. It was an easy and pleasant experience. Very friendly staff! We highly recommend them!!
We just purchased our second property in Vermont with Gale & McAllister & couldn't be happier with their professionalism, knowledge about the Vermont real estate laws & smooth guidance through this process. The communication was always fast, to the point and to our total satisfaction. We would always contact them first for any real estate opportunity, 100% recommendable.
The team at Gale & McAllister was incredibly helpful and professional to work with as we bought our first home. They were prompt to get all of the documents together and reviewed, and Denise Wood in particular was really on top of being in constant communication with both us and our lender in order to make sure everything was in order for closing. My husband and I are both very grateful for the work they did and highly recommend them!

The team at Gale & McAllister is wonderful. Our closing would not have gone as smoothly as it did without Sarah Pinto and Denise when buying our home. Sarah was the attorney for our most recent home purchase, and a purchase I made years ago. Denise was involved with both transactions as well and keeping us informed throughout the entire process, going above and beyond at times to make sure both closings happened on time.

Terrie and Sarah were great to work with at Gale and McAllister! Terrie was amazing in the final hours as our lender made an extra request, and she stayed on top of them, informed us of changes, and came in early to get everything ready for our closing.
