Jeff Olson takes reins of real estate office from George Brewer

MIDDLEBURY — Jeff Olson has bought Addison County Real Estate (ACRE) from George Brewer. “Jeff will continue serving clients with the same level of honesty, integrity, and professionalism that has been the hallmark of ACRE since its inception,” says Brewer.
Brewer, who has spent 31 years in the real estate industry and served in many leadership positions with the Addison County Board of Realtors and Vermont Realtors, is the recipient of many of the industry’s honors and certifications. He started his career in the offices of Gerard Trudeau and then launched the Lang Real Estate office in Middlebury in the early 1990s. Taking part in nearly a thousand real estate transactions over the course of his career, he launched Addison County Real Estate in 1998. He will maintain his license with the firm.
Olson, recently named Realtor of the Year by the Addison County Board of Realtors, has been with ACRE since 2015 representing both buyers and sellers, and he has expanded the company’s property management division. “I love nothing more than to help people through the intricacies of buying or selling a house or watching over their properties,” said Olson, who is also the newly elected president of the Addison County Board of Realtors.
No changes are planned for the firm. “George has succeeded by following one principle when making any decision — put the needs of the client first no matter what. With the help of agents Lisa Sargent, Tim King, Vegar Boe — and George — I will continue operating the firm in that same spirit,” says Olson.
Brewer will continue to head the Professional Standards Committee of the Vermont Realtors. In addition, he is the new State Captain of the Patriot Guard Riders, a group comprised of veterans and citizens that honor veterans, police, firefighters, and first responders at funerals and provide various other services for veterans and their families. He’s also looking forward to spending more time with his wife Donna and his beloved Harley, Rosie.
“We wish George the best in all his endeavors,” said Olson. “he has been and will continue to be a great mentor and guiding light.”
