Marlboro College contracts with new real estate agent

MARLBORO — Marlboro College has retained the services of White + Burke, a leading Vermont real estate development brokerage and consulting firm, to help find a buyer for the building located at 28 Vernon St.

In March of last year, the Marlboro College Graduate and Professional Studies program relocated from Brattleboro to the main campus in Marlboro. The co-location of the two programs has allowed for the sharing of resources, combined events, and the inclusion of graduate students and staff in community events such as Town Meeting and campus work day.

"The downtown Brattleboro space was a valuable resource for becoming more integrated in the Brattleboro community, and it served that purpose well for nearly 20 years," said Marlboro President Kevin Quigley. "Our board has decided that it's best to focus resources on our educational mission, and not on being landlords."

The Vernon Street building offers prospective buyers a high-quality professional space in a prime location with easy access to the heart of downtown Brattleboro, as well as the rest of New England.

More than 80 percent of the 42,314 leasable square footage already has tenants, including DRM, USDA, State of Vermont, and Commonwealth Dairy. Several offices have beautiful views of the Connecticut River and Mount Wantastiquet.

"We are excited to work closely with the college and the community to see that this property remains an asset to Brattleboro," said Tim Burke, director of brokerage services at White + Burke.

Based in Burlington, White + Burke is a specialized team of real estate development consultants, commercial brokers, and financial analysts.

With a commitment to social responsibility, they take pride in ensuring that their work supports the health of neighborhoods and communities in an evolving world.
