Meet The Team
Owner and Creator of Berkshire Rental Properties
Fully Licensed MA Real Estate Broker and team member of Lance Vermeulen Real Estate inc.
Claudia Laslie is the owner and creator of Berkshire Rental Properties, which since 2005 has specialized in short- and long-term home rentals throughout the Southern Berkshires. Claudia’s role is to act as liaison between renter and homeowner and to assist the owner in preparing their rental.
Claudia first fell in love with the Berkshires long ago when she came to study dance at Jacob’s Pillow, where she performed in the Ted Shawn Theatre. After an exciting career as a Ford model and commercial television actress, Claudia moved to Great Barrington in 2003 with her two young children. Looking for extra income, Claudia rolled up her sleeves — she’d clean her house top-to-bottom, pack the kids into their car seats, and rent out her house. She noticed all the other homes often sitting empty and found others. The company has come a long way since those early days … the kids are mostly grown and BRP has expanded to 30-plus listings, including real estate, and insurance integrations. We even accept credit cards now! Claudia loves to help renters (and buyers!) find their dream property and provides seasoned guidance to homeowners (and sellers!) in hopes of finding a good match.
Since 2008, Claudia is a fully licensed broker in Massachusetts, and is represented by Lance Vermeulen Real Estate Inc.
The Berkshire Rental Properties Mission: Berkshire Rental Properties aspires to deliver clean, well-prepared homes through honest advertising to the mutual satisfaction of both homeowner and guest by making meaningful connections that last for more than one night!

Associate Rental Agent
Fully Licensed MA Real Estate Agent and team member of Lance Vermeulen Real Estate inc.
Hello! I am Sarah Dixon, an associate at Berkshire Rental Properties. I’ve been working with Claudia and BRP since 2016, gaining a lot of experience working with people, preparing homes and honing my real estate skills. Claudia encouraged me to get my real estate license and here I am – licensed since October 2017 – also with Lance Vermeulen Real Estate!
A recent transplant from Boston, and after a successful fashion career working as a Technical Designer for popular companies like T.J. Maxx, Reebok, and Talbots, I jumped at the opportunity to move back to my hometown, Great Barrington, in 2015. There’s no place like the Berkshires with its amazing scenery, relaxed vibe, and unique culture to raise a family—I’m so glad to be back where I grew up!
When I am not working, I love to go and listen to live music. Whether it be on the lawn at Tanglewood or at The Barn in Egremont, give me a good band and I am set for the night.
I can’t wait to assist you with your rental or real estate needs!
