Jane Ogden

Real Estate Professional in Vergennes, Vermont
United States

Jane is a second generation Vermonter, born in Rutland and raised in a beautiful barn home renovated by her father, in the tiny hamlet of Landgrove. Her grandfather Sam, purchased the village of Landgrove in 1928, for $3500.00, during the depression, and raised his family and built a life in this special mountain town, near Bromley, Stratton, Weston,Londonderry, Peru and Manchester.

An alumnus of Vermont Academy (1979) and Middlebury College (1983), Jane was a top Junior Nordic and Collegiate Nordic ski racer and runner. She majored in Studio Art and Printmaking at Middlebury and went on to Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts to study Art. She embraced private boarding school teaching and coaching and admissions work in Cornwall, Ct at Marvelwood School, and then Simsbury ,Ct at Westminster School, and finally at her Alma Mater, Vermont Academy. Jane went on to sell her hand carved woodblock prints and hand printed clothing at shows and festivals and Farmer’s Markets from 1997 until 2014. Selling Real Estate to families who wanted to share her passion for this beautiful little state, began in 2005, as a result of her Art Shows and Festivals, and athletic connections.

Jane and her second husband, Bill Emerson, raised her two sons, Thad and Nat, and his two sons, Peter and Jamie in Landgrove in their hand built home high on a hill. They coached at Bromley and Jane was a Bill Koch League coach for West River Nordic from 1998 until the kids all left for college. Bill renovated and built homes from Fairfield County, Ct to Vermont.

In 2008 they sold their Vermont dream home and moved West to Carbondale, CO and renovated a home there in the ranchland with views of Mount Sopris and Aspen. They skied big mountains, made new Western friends, and visited their grown boys in Boulder, Burlington, and Berkeley. But Vermont was too deep in Jane’s heart and family ties beckoned. In May of 2014 Jane and Bill sold their Colorado home and moved to Addison County and back to roots and a “sense of place” that was missing in the West.

Three years later, Jane has a true “home” in Cornwall, near Middlebury. Jane and Bill hand built their own dream home, and gardens, with views West to the Adirondacks, near Lake Champlain, and all that the Champlain Valley has to offer.

Jane is an avid gardener, runner, skier and cook...and most of all, loves to share her pride of place and deep affinity for Vermont with everyone she knows and meets. She has sold homes in Landgrove, Peru, Londonderry, Weston, Manchester, Charlotte, Burlington and right here in Addison County. Jane loves to work directly with buyers and encourages them to learn about each distinct town, and then find their “place”that resonates “HOME” for them, in this very special state.
