ME + NH RE/MAX Agency

"We first met Ash when we had rented his vacation home near Sebago Lake. His attention to detail and service were exemplary. When we decided to move back to our home state, we knew there would be no one better to find our next house. Ash is kind and patient, he listened to our needs and helped us explore  numerous styles of home in various states of care. When we found the home we wanted to make an offer on, he provided honest and direct advice that helped us secure the house. And even after, he helped discuss equity building options for the future. There aren’t enough wonderful things that we could say about Ash. If you’re considering buying a home in Maine, don’t hesitate to pick up the phone and talk to Ash."

"Nick is amazing. He is such a people person and makes you feel comfortable even if you ask a stupid question. Always in contact with us even during his family vacation. Couldn't have asked for a better Realtor. We give him a 10 plus!"

"My husband and I moved from Pennsylvania. We had Emily helping us. Our experience with her was outstanding. She helped us make the transition very smooth."

"Dawn Marston is the best real estate agent ever! She went the extra mile to make my purchase as smooth as possible."

"We want to take this opportunity to thank Tom & Julia Ranello for all they have done to sell our property. We certainly appreciate their due diligence and time commitment in completing the contract. Their expertise and knowledge of the market secured the best of the best for us. We are truly grateful."

"We counted on Josh for so much, and he came through both in the sale of our home, and finding us the perfect new home. Not an easy road; we had many boxes to check for what we were looking for. Josh introduced us to many different properties so we could find our best forever home."

"Erin Finley was an awesome Realtor! She helped me throughout my entire process and showed me homes even on Christmas Eve. She works tirelessly for her clients and I would recommend her to anyone moving from out of state. She knows the area so well and guided me through every detail. She is a consummate professional."

"Terri provided outstanding service and support to our family during our house hunt and buying adventure. Her professionalism and attention to detail, combined with her unmatched knowledge of the housing market in the area, made our home buying experience top notch! Terri took the lead in touring our home choice…and supporting us while we were overseas.  Buying a home “unseen” in person could have been a scary and dauting task but with Terri on a Zoom screen or a WhatsApp phone call …she made it pleasurable and ensured we purchased a wonderful home. Many thanks to Terri and all those who made our home buying experience a success.  Strongly recommend you choose Terri as your Real Estate Professional."

"My wife and I went to Buckspan & Deering to help search for our new home. With the help of Rich Deering, as well as the other members of his team, my wife and I were able to find a beautiful home that was within our price range, and fit our desired parameters. We couldn't be more grateful for the help of all the individuals involved with our house hunt! Rich is truly an exceptional individual who took our requests/input and really found us a wonderful place that we can call home. Rich is so passionate about his work and helping others discover their new home that he was able to formulate a client/realtor bond like no other. Day OR night I was able to reach out and contact Rich about concerns, questions, and comments; Rich was great at responding quickly and efficiently, and he was not afraid to ask his team members for assistance if needed! We hope anyone who's looking for a home within Maine seriously considers Buckspan & Deering realty."

"Colleen and Emily represented me in selling my home. My experience with them was outstanding. They did a fantastic job of marketing my house and generating interest, they were extremely responsive, and they gave me solid and much-needed advice throughout the process. I felt like I was in good hands from start to finish, and in the end I did much better with the sale than I had expected. Top notch service! Highly recommend."

"I have used many Realtors in my life, but Mike Rudolph exceeded all my expectations. We were living in Arizona and had to sell a house on the Seacoast. In addition to all the services normally expected from a realtor, from start to finish Mike went above and beyond. He arranged to have the house cleaned out, possessions stored, found contractors, had needed repairs made, the yard maintained, plowing and walks maintained, got to know the neighbors, and kept an eye on the place. Whenever we needed something that couldn’t be managed remotely, Mike was right there to make sure things got done. In addition to that, he displayed excellent relational skills, treating everyone involved with respect, kindness, and unimpeachable integrity. Finally, despite the market cooling off and it being the dead of winter, he was still able to find a buyer and negotiate a fair price. He even sent us another copy of the closing documents at tax time without us even needing to ask for them. Mike was exceptional. I can’t recommend him highly enough."

"Josh did a fabulous job in helping us find a vacation home. He was very responsive to all our questions and concerns always got back to us by calling or texting within a reasonable amount of time. Highly recommend him and will definitely use him again when and if needed."

"We had a pleasant experience. Roz is very capable and she did an excellent job In helping us find a new home and selling our old home, which we loved. Roz is excellent at what she does and we felt very comfortable with her. She is personable and extremely helpful."

"Steven Gray of RE/MAX Shoreline is the best real estate agent that I have ever worked with. The attention he paid to every detail to shepherd this property deal to a successful conclusion was impressive. There were a lot of things that could have gone sideways. He made sure none of them did. Thank you, Steven."

"I worked with Emily as my agent (buyer agent), while I was looking for my first investment property. I knew close to nothing about property search, inspection, and all the other stuff concerning the enormous amount of paperwork and stress it takes. Emily was an angel! She was professional, knowledgeable, proactive. She knew her stuff! If you’re trying to get a property whether or not you’re a first time home buyer, I would definitely recommend her."

"We loved working with Terri as first time homebuyers. Having not grown up in Portsmouth, having someone with Terri’s knowledge of the community was invaluable, and her advice and patience with us as we learned the process was much appreciated. Terri’s experience as a realtor got us the house we wanted, and, even more importantly, she offered an honest assessment of our options that led us to a really great search. We love our new home, and we are thankful that we picked Terri to help us find it.

"It was a pleasure working with Derrick. He was very informative and transparent about the home buying process. He was always available for showings, even on weekends, and had great insight into the houses we were looking at. He taught us a lot about home buying and a lot about the things we didn't even know to look for. It was a very positive experience working with Derrick and we highly recommend him."

"We were looking to relocate to Maine and fortunately we found Debra Bateman; she helped us find the home of our dreams in Maine. Debra was very attentive to our needs and quickly determined what we were looking for in a home.  She went over and above to assist us with our purchase, especially as this was an out of state purchase.  Debra was there for us throughout the process and we truly appreciated her knowledge and helpful recommendations. We are so happy with Debra and would highly recommend her to anyone wishing to purchase a home."

"Tim Cheney did a great job, very patiently working through all sorts of red tape and obstacles. I will hire him again for sure."

"Our experience with Jim Mills was great. He was attentive and professional. He led us through a difficult buyer that eventually walked and helped find a second buyer quickly. We could not have asked for a more professional Realtor."

"Pam was great. Got me into a number of homes in search of one of two types of homes that met our needs and requirements. Easy to work with and a local with good knowledge of market and area."

"Steve Gray was professional in all respects. He is knowledgeable, efficient, detail oriented, and considerate. In light of the fact that Steve was actually the buyer's agent, we are even more pleased with the manner in which he handled our home sale. We will not hesitate to recommend him to any of our friends on the lake should the need arise."

"Josh was the best; he suggested little, simple home edits, I listened, and within 48 hours of showing had multiple offers. Josh is the best and the experience was great."

"From start to finish, Mike and Nancy were very helpful and knowledgeable in the process of selling my home. I would recommend them to anyone. Great people to work with."

"Stephen is the most thoughtful, diligent, and professional individual that I've ever had the fortune to work with in both my professional and personal life. It was truly refreshing to work with someone who's singular focus is on real estate and design. Not only did he make the process enjoyable, he listened to what I needed, educated me on the full process, gave me options, and advocated for me every step of the way. Stephen knows everything there is to know about Maine. He has a keen sense of properties and their design, county, and neighborhood regulations. He brings a wealth of knowledge and a great network which none of my previous agents were able to deliver, going so far as to check with the city on multiple occasions related to flood zoning, permitting, and the like. If and when I buy another property, I won't need to look any further than Stephen Peck and nor should you!"

"Excellent experience working with Mike on the home selling process! He made things easy to understand and communicated well through the process. Would recommend to anyone wanting to buy or sell a home!"

"I recently had the pleasure of working with Tom and Julia Ranello from The Ranello Group of RE/MAX Shoreline. Their knowledge and expertise, combined with their caring and personal manner, helped to facilitate the quick and efficient sale of my house. Tom and Julia worked tirelessly to address all of my concerns, while finding just the right buyer for my home. Thank you!"

"Karen Thompson is an amazing agent, and person! We consider her a friend to us and our family 😊 Being first-time home buyers, she helped us through the process of the overwhelming world of real estate and the processes that go into finding a home and buying a home. She referred us to Infinity Credit Unions first-time home buyers program, and the people there at ICU in Westbrook are out of this world helpful and want to make sure you're on the right path for success. We highly recommend Karen for all your home buying needs! Thank you so much!"

"Mike was amazing to work with! We had a lot of questions and he always made time to answer them. He explained things to us very well and even prevented a few issues from happening. I would definitely recommend him to anyone!"

"The Buckspan Deering Team made buying a retirement home out of state a breeze. Jaime was incredible, and guided us through the process effectively and efficiently. We greatly appreciated her honest opinions on both the advantages, as well as disadvantages, of the properties we considered. She even provided great video tours when we weren't able to be there in person. We could not be more pleased with the service provided by Jaime, Cricket, and Derrick."

"Meeting [Tom] and Julia immediately put me at ease in that [they] listened to my concerns about finding the right buyer to join our condo association, then [they] found me the perfect buyer at above ask! From the beautiful photography, to being featured in the Press Herald, managing showings, finding a great buyer, and advising me through closing; at all times [they] stayed in touch with me and kept me informed. I can’t thank [them] enough."

"Mike Rudolph was an outstanding choice for my listing. He is a great realtor and a great guy all around. I would recommend him to anyone. Thank you so much Mike for everything."

"Chloe was excellent! Very helpful in selecting and purchasing the house. She provided a lot of helpful advice as we made our way through the buying process, and streamlined a lot of technical processes that I wasn't aware of."

"I am totally satisfied with my experience and service I received from RE/MAX Shoreline. I chose Mary because she worked so hard to find a home for my son two years ago. I believe in loyalty. Mary did not disappoint! My condominium spent five days on the market! I closed in less than three weeks of listing and it was a cash sale, higher than my asking price! How could anyone be dissatisfied with those results?"

"We believe that Peter represented us well. He was detail oriented letting us know what had to be done and when each task had to be completed. This was much appreciated since buying a home in Maine is a complex task for those new to the state and its real estate procedures and requirements. Although it is difficult to determine the fair market value of a property in this real estate market, Peter acting as the buyers' agent did manage to negotiate a price below the asking price which of course was to our benefit. Peter also did not forget us after the closing texting to make sure we had insured our purchase. In a way we are repeat clients in that Peter served as the agent for our son approximately two years ago. He was satisfied then as we are now. Quite frankly we were pleased with the service Peter provided and would recommend him to others wishing to buy or sell a home."

"I was matched with Pam via Realtor.com and was hesitant. I did not understand the process and just wanted more information on a condo when I filled out the form on the realtor.com site.  It was overwhelming to be matched with someone when I was not expecting it. Pam took the time to meet with my mom and I while I asked a ton of questions about her experience, what the process is like, and to see if I thought we would be a good fit. She gave me time to think about it and make the right decision for me.  I am so glad I ended up being connected with her! She was very responsive to my questions. Gave very good advice and helped me find the perfect house - really quickly. I still can't believe it happened! The seller said that the offer was very clean and that was one of the reasons they accepted it! You can tell that Pam cares about her clients. I brought my parents, aunt and uncle and friends with me to showings and she was welcoming and personable. Thank you!"

"Erin Finley helped me purchase a home in Portland, Maine, (relocated from Ohio for employment) and gave me a virtual tour of it. She helped me find a local bank and mortgage lender, a painter, a plumber, contact number for utilities, a hair salon, etc. When another employment opportunity (out of state) presented itself, Erin helped me with a market-appropriate selling price, reviewed my home (staging), and helped me find a buyer. Erin has gone out of her way to ensure a smooth buying and selling process. She is the consummate real estate professional. Highly recommend."

"Working with Jeremy has been an absolute pleasure! He is very professional, extremely patient, and easy to deal with, from the beginning to the end. Definitely recommend him to anyone... Alex was pretty nice and eager to help."

"I feel that Tim encouraged me in the right direction to get my best offer and see it through. I would recommend Tim to others, and look for him if I needed further real estate assistance."

"My fiancé and I were looking for our first home, and Mary was a wonderful Realtor for us. She was responsive, knowledgeable, upbeat, and grounded in reality. She was always responsible in not only suggesting a specific price we should submit, but offered a realistic expectation and always pointed out major flaws during our search. This was especially important for us being first time buyers and not always knowing what to look for. Additionally, she was an overall pleasant person to work with and was always available for any question we had. I would recommend Mary to anyone."

"Patti Fortier did an awesome job representing us during this process of purchasing a property in Newfield, Maine. She always returned our phone calls and kept us up to date as everything progressed.  I would recommend her to any one looking for an Agent.  This was our second time working with Patti as she sold our home in Springvale, Maine in 2018."

"Rich, Cricket, and the rest of the team at Shoreline were a joy to work with in purchasing a home I know I'll love. Not only did Rich lock in the best price for me, he and the team helped every step of the way through closing and beyond. Since I was doing all my transactions from out of state, Rich's attention to detail and frequent communications were most welcome! Such a delightful, cheerful, helpful crew - I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them!"

"Mary McAleney was an absolute pleasure. Mary not only helped us sell our home in four short days but stood by us as we took her from house, to house, to house until we found our perfect new home fit! Highly recommend RE/MAX and more specifically Mary."

"Mike was invaluable in helping my husband and I purchase our first home. It was a two year process with dozens of rejected offers. We won’t hesitate to use him again in the future on our next sale/purchase and would encourage others to do the same. Thank you Mike!"

"Erin was incredible! She made our home buying process quick and easy! We would use her a million times over and will refer her to anyone we know! Thanks so much Erin!"

"Tom Ranello of RE/MAX Shoreline helped my brother and me sell our parents' house so that they could move to assisted living. A complicated process, to be sure. But Tom never came to me with problems, Tom aways came to me with solutions. Highly recommended."

"You won't find a better agent! Jodi is the best! I was very lucky to find her. As a transplant to Maine her knowledge of the area, what the different communities had to offer, and what living the Maine life is all about was extremely valuable to me. She really knew what I was looking for in a home in Maine, and she found the perfect place for me. She provided excellent guidance throughout the entire buying process, from recommending an excellent mortgage broker through to the closing. I found her thorough style of showing a house extremely beneficial bringing to my attention the good aspects of a home as well as things I needed to be concerned about. I knew I could trust her opinion on homes 100%, and this was so valuable being from out of state. Jodi really went the extra mile in the negotiation process, working with me to develop a strong offer, and working with my mortgage broker and the seller's agent to put together a deal that worked for all parties in an extremely competitive market. I can say with 100% certainty that it is because Jodi Federle was my agent I am typing this review from a home I absolutely love!!! Thanks Jodi!"

"We would like to send a special thank you to Deb Bateman, our agent who not only led us through the austere process of selling our condominium but helped us realize our dream of owning a beachfront condo. Deb is professional, reliable, knowledgeable energetic and extremely dedicated to her client and still remains our go to contact if any anything at all arises. She has been supportive and an invaluable source of information that goes beyond any of our expectations. Thank you, Deb you are an extraordinary person, and have become a dear friend!"

"Jodi helped me purchase a lot on John Small road in 2021. The sellers were very undecided about how much to ask and Jodi helped me negotiate a great price. She saved me a lot of money and made the buying process easy. I highly recommend her services!"

"Sara Treacy is, hands down, the most competent of Realtors. She came highly recommended by some friends of ours and exceeded every hope and expectation we had. Within days of becoming our agent she had the house professionally photographed and widely listed, with showings and an open house scheduled within the first week. This woman is amazing. Sara was there to guide us through every step of the process and worked long hours to ensure our success. She was obviously committed to keeping us “in the loop,” sending us text messages and emails between our in-person meetings that kept the anxiety of this process in check, and the forward progress able to be tracked in real time. Do yourself a favor if you’re selling or buying a house: Hire Sara as your agent. You couldn’t possibly do better, and I am absolutely certain that if you do, YOU will be the next person to be writing a review just like this one singing her praises."

"We were delighted to work with Jamie and Rich. Jamie went out of her way to make us familiar with homes we couldn’t see in person by sending us videos and scoping out neighborhood walking paths. And then there was the trip to see a building site in the woods with obvious tick problems. And her cool, professional response to the unexpected conditions at our new home on closing day helped defuse a tense situation. Rich provided great advice on the local market and Maine’s home buying process. Once we made an offer, he referred us to local services we needed.  He alerted us to problems with the house that were not identified by the inspector and arranged to have them remedied. Both Jamie and Rich did their best to find us a home that met our needs in a very difficult market. We are happy to know them and would definitely recommend them to others!"

"Tom Ranello is a wonderful Realtor. Not only is he a hard charging go-getter, he is a kind and compassionate man, with a big heart and a deep understanding of human nature and human relations. I am a lawyer representing clients in divorce cases, where selling real estate and relocating if often necessary. The process can be painful and stress inducing. Tom is someone who will work around the clock to get the job done, to take care of people in need, and to help them to find a safe place to fall. I trust him implicitly with the best interest of my clients. Tom has helped many a client extricate themselves from a challenging financial situation, to find a better home and a better way of life. Having him available to assist with divorce related real estate makes my job so much easier, and gives my clients a sense of safety and security. I offer Tom my highest endorsement. I can’t think of a better realtor or better person."

"Pam was fantastic! She was supportive and to say she was ultra responsive would be an understatement. Very grateful the Realtor® app linked her up with me. I'm honestly not sure the buying experience could've gone smoother."

"Tom and Julia Ranello are seasoned and savvy brokers. They understand the ever-changing real estate market, they know all the ins and outs of Southern Maine, and they have a knack for making positive things happen. This would be enough for most people, but they also have real heart. This is important to me because, like a lot of people, I find real estate transitions to be very stressful — and when the going gets tough, you want people with real integrity in your corner. I recently simultaneously sold a home and purchased a home and moved to a new town, something I had never done before. The logistics were daunting, my stress level was high, but somehow Tom and Julia made everything synch up and work out. I can’t say enough about Tom going the extra-extra mile to make sure we had inspectors or roofers or a furnace repairman at the last minute when everyone is booked solid. He was always ready for whatever curveballs came our way and never too busy to take a call or a text. This was the second time I’ve worked with Tom and Julia on buying a home, and while I’m not looking to move again anytime soon, if I ever do plan to move again, they will be the first people I call, without any hesitation. I consider them friends, and I am very grateful to know them."

"Jodi did an amazing job helping us find a piece of land out on Chebeague Island. We looked at several properties together and were always impressed with her patience, professionalism, and knowledge of the area. She went above and beyond during the pandemic to do a virtual tour when we were unable to visit and was always very honest about whether or not a particular place would be the right fit. I appreciate her persistence with helping us find a great spot and look forward to being her neighbor out on the island!"

"Mary McAleney went above and beyond to help my husband and I purchase our first home. She was extremely responsive and personable, has impressive industry knowledge, and was fantastic at working with us and all other parties throughout the entire process. She has a long list of great recommendations for anything you might want/need to do on your new home and will even help move you to the top of their lists! I highly recommend working with her!"

"Tom Ranello is a seasoned broker who draws on a large network of clients and businesses and he knows the current market. He takes great care in guiding buyers and sellers through the purchase and sale of homes, one of the most stressful events in peoples’ lives. With his marketing expertise and a vast pool of resources from which to draw, he is able to show your home in its best light. He is punctual and communicates well. I’ve been fortunate to work with Tom both as a seller and a buyer. He keeps in touch with his sellers and buyers regularly through texts and phone calls. The last sale was a stressful one for me and he was always there, ready to lend a hand if needed in a calm and positive way. He has your best interests at heart, he is honest and always does his best for his clients."

"Jeremy Bennett: Where do we even begin? Thank you for being you, and choosing to support us with your energy so we could locate our forever home. Despite how weird the last year has unfolded, you gave us an unforgettable and beautiful human experience. Thank you for being so authentic and raw with us. We cherish our connection; it really means a lot to us. Thank you for your patience and kindness, too; this process is tiresome but absolutely doable because of you!"

"Barry and I decided to buy a home after we had only lived in Maine a few years, and we knew very little about buying property in Maine. Tom listened  to our needs and challenges and offered his expert advice. Tom has always responded quickly and provided clear explanations of what we could expect. Moreover, Tom made the impossible  possible, kept our stress level to a minimum and made the process virtually seamless! We would highly recommend The Ranello Group for all your Real Estate needs."

"We have been loosely looking at property in Maine for 30 years. This past year we became more serious about it and spoke with Stephen. We live in PA so it was a bit challenging. The property had some issues that we needed to work through and it took longer to close than we anticipated. Through it all Stephen remained calm and did his best to keep us calm as well. He does have great vision and insight and it was a pleasure to work with him. Highly recommend him as a Realtor!"

"Tom Ranello not only knows the housing market, he knows people. And more than that, he cares. I must have been one of his most distressed clients, a new widow, selling a house I’d lived in for 30+ years. But Tom was patient, wise, astute and made it all possible. He was also warm and kind, and a delight to talk with."

"A million thanks to Dawn for her continual knowledge and support. Moving from Hilton Head at 74 has been many hurdles for past 5 months."

"When we were ready to sell the house, Tom made the whole process so easy.  He listed the house and had a few open houses.  We did have one possible buyer but he had a funny feeling about the prospects and we decided against them. He then found another buyer and she was perfect. I do believe she was a retired teacher like my mom and was a perfect fit for my mother’s condo. Once the condominium was cleared out, he had a cleaning company come over and do the final cleaning free of charge! Tom is very professional and personable and just a pleasure to work with.  The ease of selling my mom’s condo was so gratifying. If any one of my friends or family ask me for a referral for a real estate broker, it would be Tom Ranello."

"I have nothing but good things to say about the Donald/Lord team! Both ladies were very supportive, understanding, and always willing to check in and help me. They went above and beyond to help me, and did everything in their power for me to make sure I got the house of my dreams. I would and will recommend them to anyone I know because they are always there for you and want to make sure you get what you are looking for and in the price you’re looking for. Honestly 5/5 stars, even after I bought my house they are still checking in on me to make sure I am happy and everything is going well. A million thank you’s to the Donald and Lord team they made my first home buying experience the most easy and enjoyable time!"

"Even a Realtor needs to hire a Realtor. I have represented clients for 15 years, but when I need someone to represent me, I call Tom and Julia Ranello."

"Mike Rudolph handled the sale of our home and the purchase of our new home.  He did this with professionalism, attention to detail, good communication, and with care.  Through the whole time that Mike represented us, we felt that he was working diligently for us with our best interests in mind.  Both closings and everything that led up to them went smoothly.  We really appreciate how easy he and his assistant, Nancy Brown, made this for us.  We would highly recommend him and RE/MAX to our friends."

"We feel very fortunate to have been able to work with Tom both in buying a house and selling our house.  He was very knowledgeable and straightforward in his assessments as well as being personable and helpful in guiding us through the process.  We would highly recommend Tom to anyone looking for a reliable and professional realtor who knows how to get houses sold."

"Mary was amazing! She found us the perfect house in the perfect place. She was fast, responsive, knowledgeable, and fun to work with. I would 100% recommend working with her!"

"We highly recommend Tom Ranello for any real estate transaction. Tom competently  navigated us through a complicated, multi bid transaction. His expertise, patience and guidance were keys in us successfully becoming the owners of the sought after property. With that said, he also is a very nice human being and fun to work with. Thanks Tom!"

"This was my second selling experience with Tom, my first about 6 years ago.  He provides good advice and is always available should we have any questions. He has a ton of experience so he’s seen pretty much everything. When we decided to sell this time, I didn’t contact anyone else, I reached out to Tom only. I would recommend him to anyone looking to list their house."

"I can say with certainty that it was a pleasure to work with Mike. This is my first home and was my first time looking for one, and Mike was an excellent person for me to work with. He was always very responsive and professional. There were a few bumps along the way, due to the market itself and some issues with obtaining financing in a timely manner, but Mike always brought a calming presence and sense of levelheadedness to defuse the situation. I can easily say that I would want to work with Mike again in the future, if/when the time comes."

"We are very pleased with our dealings with Tom Ranello. We found him to be personable and sincere.  He was extremely helpful in both the buying of our new home and the selling of our old place. He was knowledgeable and led us through the process quite easily and was always available to answer any questions or concerns. We will highly recommend him to all our friends."

"Stephen helped us sell our first home. Home buying/selling is stressful, especially if it's your first time. Stephen has the unique experience of having been both a buyer and a seller many times himself so he has true compassion for where his clients are. He has real personal experiences to draw on that help guide his clients through the process. He also is very calm and thoughtful about the strategy and approach needed depending on market trends, client interests, and home attributes. While no part of him feels or acts like a 'salesman,' he knows how to sell. Because of his interior design knowledge, he knows how to stage your home just right, using only what you already have. Even though we were selling, the photos he got of our house made us want to buy it all over again! He also knows how to help you think about pricing, and how to create an environment that makes buyers feel comfortable and able to picture themselves living in the house during a showing. I would make Stephen my agent every time if I could."

"My husband and I have worked with Tom for over 7 years on 5 different properties. Each time we buy or sell we use Tom. He is incredibly responsive, very savvy, and overall so pleasant to work with.  We have felt confident with each transaction and will continue to use Tom as we go forward."

"I totally recommend Rebecca and Michelle to anyone who is looking for professional help in buying/selling real estate."

"It’s hard to believe that it’s been 2 years since my husband, Peter, and I sold our home in Ocean Park, Maine, a home we had owned for 47 years, blessing us with wonderful family memories. Because I loved the home so much, it was imperative I choose the perfect real estate brokers. Tom and Julia Ranello were that team. Tom and Julia handled everything for the sale, and I do mean everything. From the advertising write-up and professional photos to the open houses and the correlation between the appraiser and the bank. They made the whole process totally worry-free. Peter and I were only assigned two tasks: Sign the sale contract and pick up our check! And, that’s exactly what we did. We are now thinking of downsizing again and I know whom we’re going to call: The Ranello Group at RE/MAX Shoreline."

"I recently purchased a home with RE/MAX Shoreline. Nick Guerrette was my real estate agent and I could not have been happier working with him. This process had several ups and downs for me as buying a home during a major life change, and a pandemic, proved difficult on many levels. He was so professional and patient as I processed how to move on in life, and understood that if I was not confident or comfortable it wasn't right. He would consistently point out positives and negatives about potential properties which created a feeling that he was truly invested in my desires and well-being. It took roughly a year of working together to find the right home for me. His own knowledge of home building and maintenance was instrumental during the inspections and understanding of the property. I would not hesitate to use him again."

"I cannot thank Tom enough for his work in selling our family’s home of 46 years. He took care of EVERYTHING - from providing timely status updates to getting down on the floor to help remove the carpeting!!   He made the entire process simple from our first listing appointment through the closing.  I never had to follow-up as he had everything under control and was constantly working towards the sale.  I know we obtained the highest possible price for our home because of his hard work.  I will definitely be calling Tom in the future and referring all of my friends for any of their house selling/buying needs!"

"I've worked with Dawn for years. She has always been patient and responsive. In a highly competitive market it is important to work with a realtor you trust. Dawn gets the job done! I can't speak highly enough about her."

"Patti Fortier was very helpful.  She went above and beyond to help us out and we couldn't have asked for a better experience!"

"My wife and I had the pleasure of working with The Ranello Group in 2018,  then again in 2020 and currently. Whether it was our first house, thoughts of selling or looking for farm land, Tom has always been by our side. Tom was able to navigate us though the unknowns of buying our first house with ease. He was patient- as we didn't know whether to buy new, a fixer-upper or in between. He booked us for showings after showings. He was never more than a phone call away for months. We are now in a neighborhood and house we love. Looking back, as we now are married with kids, he treated us as he would his own family, with respect and dedication. We will be sure to call The Ranello Group with any real estate questions or inquires that arise."

"Over the years my wife and I have had the opportunity to work with several real estate agents in either selling or buying properties associated with moves. I can say with out hesitation Kathy has been the most efficient and most pleasant of any we have worked with. She was very knowledgeable about the local market and guided our negotiations very effectively. Maybe most important she was very supportive during a stressful time. We can recommend Kathy without reservations. If I were going to negotiate another sale ( which I hope never occurs) we would turn to Kathy." 

"We can’t begin to thank Rich for making the selling process painless. He was kind, responsive and helpful! I can’t imagine anyone making it easier!"

"I have purchased numerous homes in my life and have worked with many real estate agents. Colleen Bedard is by far the best real estate agent I have ever worked with. Her knowledge, professionalism and guidance were exemplary. She worked with us every step of the way during the search for our home  and the buying process. She provided us with services which I know were above and beyond the scope of my experiences with other realtors in the past. I have referred others to her and they have had the same experience of Colleen's excellence as a realtor. She was a delight to work with and I would welcome the chance to work with her again in the future." 

"I recently sold a property using the services of Buckspan & Deering real estate. I have used other realtors in the past and have had enough experiences buying and selling properties to know what’s good service and what’s exemplary. Without going into the details of our orientation, listing, offers and closing, I can say Derrick made our transaction the exciting and rewarding experience it should be. His research of our market, coupled with his experience, professionalism and understanding of our needs made the difference. We even changed the “rules” on him a few weeks into our listing (pushed up the deadline for our relocation). Derrick is a personable and professional guy hitting the strike zone in a business where keeping the client informed and involved is everything! I highly recommend his services and will use them in the future with any and all real estate transactions I have in the area."

"Marcel just helped us sell our historic single family home in Eliot and was absolutely outstanding to work with well before we ever listed through the sale and after.  He came over and generously went through the house house with us 2 years prior to our making the decision to sell. He gave sage and  practical input that made the house ultimately better for the buyers. This was an emotionally tough sale for me and Marcel was patient and kind throughout.  He is responsive, knowledgeable, well connected, patient, and a much better negotiator than I am!  He continues to be available post-sale and has helped us after the sale by recommending an agent in Portland."

"It was truly a pleasure working with Peter during this process.  He reacted to our needs and responded quickly at every corner and was proactive in his management of our listing.  He communicated well and it was just a pleasure to work with."

"Liz’s assistance in my purchase was phenomenal. It was very reassuring to work with her and her staff. I consistently found Liz to be professional, helpful, thorough, timely-responsive and exceptionally knowledgeable. Liz has an attitude that allowed me to feel that she was concerned, interested and willing to give me her best service, advice and assistance. She made suggestions when needed, and she gave assurances to me when I may have felt a little overwhelmed. Very early on I came to trust Liz, and from the day I made an Offer for my property until the day of my Closing, I felt secure with her at my side. My experience working with Liz was really fantastic and I continue to be grateful to her and I hope that she remains in my life. I am relocating from Connecticut to New Hampshire and with Liz’s expertise, this transition was both successful and exciting. I would proudly recommend Liz to others!"

"Colleen is the best! We met with her and just a few days later she found us the house of our dreams. We told her exactly what we wanted and she got it! She has extensive knowledge of the greater Portland area and was able to expertly guide us through a process we knew little about. She made us feel  secure in our purchase and kept us informed throughout the process. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to purchase a home in the area."

"I highly recommend Derrick! As first time home buyers, it can be an overwhelming experience (filled with lots of questions and concerns) and Derrick was always accessible and supportive through the whole process. We had a difficult close and even then, he was always patient and willing to share his expertise. I feel so grateful that he was on our side through it and appreciative of all of his help and services!"

"10/10! I was looking to purchase my first home from out of state, and I couldn't have had a better Broker on my side. Marcel is a true expert in his field and made the whole process educational, fun and smooth. His Rolodex runs deep with professionals of the same caliber, from mortgage brokers, to  home inspectors and contractors.  Marcel went above and beyond throughout the whole process, including working the 4th of July to ensure the closing was on time with no surprises! He followed through with some local contractors on some of the issues (minor) that came up during the home inspection for further investigation/quotes. Everyone he has recommended has been top notch, and I couldn't be happier with my new home. It was obvious that he truly listened to my "wish list" and had my best interests in mind. Instead of selling me a house; he managed to find me a home that had everything I wanted and then some!"

"Thoughtful, patient, professional. Peter helped us find the perfect house. He showed us all sorts of options and determined the best match. He has a long history in the area and knows the market. We cannot recommend him highly enough."

"We selected Liz after interviewing three realtors and chose her because we knew she would be on top it. She is proactive, creative, always had our best interest in mind, and definitely had a knowledge that you could only gain from years in the business. Her team was helpful and a pleasure to work with as well. Would definitely choose Liz and again!"

"We recently purchased our first home with Colleen as our buyer’s agent. I can’t say enough about what Colleen has to offer as a realtor. She knows the business inside and out and has impressive knowledge of the greater Portland area. As first time buyers, she guided us through every step and took  the time to explain everything that was new to us. From looking at homes and navigating the inspection process all the way to the closing table, Colleen was always available and kept us moving in the right direction.  We are a busy working household, but Colleen didn’t bat an eye at Saturday morning meetings or after-hours showings. She responded to every email and call – while that seems like a small part of the process, it was invaluable to us as nervous first time buyers. We were at ease in Colleen's capable hands and are thankful to have had her on our side!"

"I never used a buyer’s real estate agent prior to using Ms. Levey-Pruyn for a recent home purchase. I was always a bit skeptical of the concept of a buyer’s agent, as there is no direct financial incentive to the agent to minimize the sale price. Ms. Levey-Pruyn proved my skepticism very wrong. I believe she did everything possible to genuinely help me negotiate the lowest price. As importantly, she was consistently available by phone, text, and email throughout the buying process. In fact, if not for her knowledge of the local area, we would not have had the opportunity to purchase our home in the first place, as it was not listed at the time she informed us of it’s possible availability. She was always professional and polite, always easy to communicate with, and by far the most positive aspect of our entire buying process. She provided extraordinary support during a sometimes difficult road to the closing. I cannot say enough about her skills and performance. I give her the highest recommendation without reservation."
