Brenda has an incredible knowledge base within the real estate industry. She has an extensive referral base of related professionals to assist in the process of selling a home which is incredibly helpful. We would highly recommend Brenda Whitney.

J. & J. Tait, Yarmouth, Buyers
As Cumberland, Maine Area residents - my wife and I enthusiastically recommend the Portside Real Estate Group’s Yarmouth Office. Specifically, we have always worked with the team of Beth Franklin and Mike LePage at that location. They have assisted us many times - over the past 10 years - with our planning, decision making, and other important aspects related to home purchase and sales transactions. In addition, we have consistently referred numerous friends and business acquaintances to them for help with their real estate needs. Beth and Mike have truly impressed us with their abilities to guide us through complicated real estate purchase and sales processes. Based on their hard work, market knowledge, excellent sales and negotiating skills, and always sound advice - we would not hesitate to recommend this team of real estate professionals for your new home purchase or sale.

When I was looking to buy a home, my friend Gail referred me to Becky. She described Becky as "a real go-getter!” Gail said that after so many months of not having enough showings and being disappointed in her realtor, she let go of him and went with Becky. Suddenly she had many showings, had good advice, and was quickly able to sell her home. After working with Becky, I felt that Gail was right. Becky worked just as hard for me as she did for Gail and I am so happy in my new home!
Sheila Merkison, Buyer
Andy has managed our three unit in South Portland for 15 years so we turned to him when ready to sell last fall. We knew Andy to be organized and experienced in real estate, qualities that would lead to a sale for considerably over the asking price. During the months prior to the listing going live, Andy helped us evaluate which upgrades to the property made sense. His suggestions to repave the driveway and make simple changes to the landscaping greatly increased the curb appeal. The sales plan Andy developed involved having three open houses to minimize disruption to the tenants. The tenants remained happy and the open houses resulted in multiple offers. Andy was particularly helpful in evaluating the strengths and weaknesses of each offer. Andy is honest and trustworthy. His experience made the entire process run smoothly. We will be asking Andy to sell our home next year as we retire to VA.

We had a long, complicated buying/selling journey when we moved to Maine, which included buying a house we didn't plan to stay in. Our stay there ended up shorter than we anticipated, so we tried to avoid an agent in order to minimize the loss. A few months in, Andy approached us with a no pressure, straight-forward, relaxed attitude that convinced us it was time to sign him up. He guided us through which updates made the most sense and how to make it more appealing. And he helped us price the house right where it belonged. Despite being a higher asking price than we paid, we had a full price offer the first weekend. When issues came up (that were missed when we bought the house), he was on top of it all and took care of everything - even finding and scheduling a contractor. I had had agents in the past that I enjoyed working with, but Andy made me realize how much easier the process can be when your agent is willing to take on the whole project. He was very proactive and never seemed to mind dealing with the little annoying details. He has also shown us a few properties for my mother-in-law, who will likely work with him when the time comes.

Amanda worked diligently to find us the right home and never gave up on us when we rejected one after another before the right one came along. She is pleasant, personable, and attentive and her response time is amazingly quick. She does the necessary research to provide pertinent information and to answer questions. She is very knowledgeable about the community, local resources, and points of interest, which was a huge help to us.
- Kathy & Peter L., Cumberland
Amanda is wonderful to work with when buying and selling homes. In a very competitive market, she found the perfect house for us and helped us get it. She was always available to show us houses and to answer our many questions. Her expertise was invaluable. When we sold our house, she guided us every step of the way and the process was better than we could have ever expected. We highly recommend Amanda. She is patient, hard working, and knowledgeable.

On a whim, my husband and I decided we wanted to take the leap and purchase our first home. We didn’t know what to expect and didn’t really know what we were looking for. Upon meeting Alyssa Bouthout, we were certain our anxieties would be calmed. Alyssa took us through the intricacies of the process as first time home buyers. She combed through details of house disclosures to ensure our understanding. Alyssa coached us through a process to refine what we were looking for in our first home. Also, unbeknownst to us, everyone was buying that season. The market was competitive and we found ourselves in not one, but two multi-offer situations. With Alyssa’s guidance, we maneuvered effortlessly, and purchased a house with which we’re in love! I have and continue to refer family and friends to Alyssa for their real estate needs, and look forward to working with Alyssa again should we have a need!

We have known Ali since 2008 when we started looking for a condo in Portland. When the building we were interested in never came to fruition, Ali worked with us (from our current city which is 2,000 miles away fromPortland) over the next two years until she found us the perfect place. Ali never gave up until we were completely happy. She went far beyond what any real estate agent should be expected to do both before, during and after the sale. We would recommend Ali without any reservations, as her work ethic, business sense and desire to please her clients are exemplary.
