The Green Mountain Horse Association brought Geoffrey Nichols, Principal Broker, to the Woodstock area when he attended the summer pony club program. He came back to attend Middlebury College. He started Woodstock Properties in 1968 and then developed an independent housing complex for the elderly in Woodstock. Geoffrey's greatest satisfaction in business has been his work with three of Vermont's leading non-profit organizations to protect and conserve Vermont Land. Geoffrey and his wife Joan Hagerman Nichols live on a horse farm in Pomfret.
