Why Work With Us?
Here's what our satisfied customers are saying about us:
There are two things about 2020 that made the year positive and memorable for us: the purchase of our dream home and the wonderful experience we had working with Diane to find and purchase that home. We entered the homebuying process wanting something that (1) met our practical needs and (2) was a bit different. Diane took the time to really understand those needs and saw how important it was for us to find a place that would be unique to us and welcoming to our creativity. We still chuckle when we recall the day we saw the listing. We called Diane to share our curiosity and interest for this strange, octagon home only to find out she had also seen it and wanted to send it to us. Because we were fortunate to have an agent with such a personal approach (and great knowledge of the plants and flowers on the property!), we saw what is now our home not just for its bones but also for its character and potential both inside and out. And when the clock started ticking on the crucial steps in the process, Diane was very knowledgeable, resourceful, and there to guide us through our questions. This wasn't the stressful homebuying process you read about in online articles. It was a happy journey and we will forever be grateful to Diane for that!

We have bought and sold seven properties in two states and worked with many realtors. Heather is outstanding and the best we've worked with to date. She made the searching easy, understood her region completely, handled the negotiations smoothly, moved Heaven and Earth to get our inspections done thoroughly, and seems to know the best professionals in every field. We would whole heartedly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell in Maine.

I can't rave enough about Erin, who is kind, funny and intelligent as an advisor, and a tireless and impeccable broker! She went above and beyond over and over again--in every way, and at every time of day--while we looked at houses. She is strategic, but she's also just the kind of person you want by your side when the decisions are emotional, too, as they are whenever you are buying a home. She was patient while we hesitated and fretted. She was resolute and firm when negotiating on our behalf. She understands all the ins and outs of the local market, but never insists on her point of view. Her clients are the lucky ones--absorb all the Erin-time you can.

Taylor was awesome to work with. She truly is the best realtor! She always made herself available and counseled us during our search for our perfect home that met all of our needs. She truly went above and beyond from our first conversation to the closing, she listened to everything that we were looking for, and never took us to a house that didn’t fit our needs. She was full of knowledge about the area, she was kind and never treated us like just another client. We will only work with Taylor and we recommend her to all our friends and family looking for a home in Maine.

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.

We can’t say enough about our great experience with Bridget King. As a former military family we have had plenty of time thinking about what we wanted in our dream home and dream location. Bridget was able to quickly understand what we wanted (and didn’t want) and we quickly narrowed down our possibilities. Once we were decided on the home she helped present a fair and competitive offer and got us a number of seller concessions that helped tremendously. When we hit a few snags with the seller after inspections (which were incredibly thorough thanks to an amazing inspector) she was able to get the seller to see our point of view and meet our requests. Bridget’s responsiveness is amazing, but when she is working with you you have her full attention. This kind of responsiveness is absolutely necessary in a competitive market.

Brent is an awesome full-service agent who really goes above and beyond the call of duty to help clients buy and sell homes. He helped us sell our home and then helped us figure out our next steps to finding our dream home. His passion and zeal are contagious and he really made the whole process stress-free and fun. I never had to worry about missing an important date or overlooking valuable information and he was always just a phone call away. He listened to what we wanted and did the research to make sure that no stone was left unturned. I don’t know where we’d be without him!

Grainne and Becky helped us buy our new home in Maine and they worked together seamlessly. They were a pleasure to deal with, they know the communities they serve and they made the entire process orderly and free of drama. They communicated effectively, prepared us for each step in the process and they recommended excellent local resources for inspections, legal counsel and tradespeople. We've already referred friends!

"We worked with Simone for about a year between buying a house and selling a condo. She is outstanding and extraordinary; really personally invested. She is great at communicating and kept us in the loop with all developments. She is an agent of servitude. She never made us feel like a burden even when we felt like we were bothering her. Simone is very approachable with questions of all types and knows who to contact to research anything she needs to find out. Without a doubt, Simone would be our first call if we were ever in the need to buy or sell another property."

"Sarah and Ellen took us all the way from the vague dream of a summer home to owning an amazing and beautiful place in an astonishingly reasonable amount of time. They were extremely helpful in planning, searching, and visiting prospective houses but it was the knowledgeable and professional way that they helped us through negotiations and the myriad details of the purchase process where they really stood out. We will choose them again in an instant for whatever real estate help we will need in the future."
