Leslie Fraser grew up in Manchester, MA an ocean town on Cape Ann. At a young age her family would spend entire summers camping in the White Mountains of NH and most winter weekends skiing the mountains in the Mt. Washington Valley region. Although loving the ocean, the mountains and country landscapes had a stronger pull on her heart. Her passion for alpine skiing brought her to the Mt. Snow region as a ski instructor in the early 70's. Now many years later after nurturing a family, growing many vegetable gardens, raising beef cattle, riding horses and always enjoying the natural beauty of The Deerfield Valley surroundings, she is in the business of promoting this wonder lifestyle and selling real estate in southern Vermont. In 2006 she and her business partner Lisa Coneeny established "A Place in Vermont" real estate agency which recently merged with Vermont Country Properties Sotheby's International Realty.
