Bio:
When Portland, Maine REALTOR® Shawn Losier states that he wants to be "Your Real Estate Consultant for Life," it's not "wishful thinking"... it's his prediction of the relationship he will earn based on prior experience from an ever growing number of clients who have been seeking his guidance again and again since he was first licensed in 1998

With his professionalism, market knowledge, and negotiating skills, Shawn offers his clients an unsurpassed level of care. For Shawn, fiduciary duty goes beyond the financial aspects of buying or selling a home and include handling transaction's in a manner that relieves the stress and uncertainties that so often surround life-changing events like buying a home.

In fact, stress and uncertainty were actually two of the factors that led Shawn to a career in real estate. When he set out to buy his first home, he couldn't find any agents to help him, because he says the price point was so low that there was little incentive for agents to go that extra mile.

After being forced to represent himself in that first purchase he decided to become licensed, so he could help others in the same position. Today those first time buyers, no other agents wanted, are his clients, friends and his advocates. Over the years he's assisted with the sale of many of those first homes and with the purchase of move-up homes - often more than once. And of course, he still enjoys helping first time buyers accomplish their dreams of home ownership.

Shawn attributes his clients loyalty to his negotiation skills, frequent communication and extensive knowledge of the Portland area market. They also appreciate his problem-solving abilities and technological savvy, as well as his written Satisfaction Guarantee Agreement. In testimonials his clients do mention those factors, but what shines through is their knowledge that he truly cares about the outcome for each of them.

He wants each of his clients to get not only "the best deal," but "the right deal," and he works tirelessly to make that happen.

Shawn's care for others extends beyond his clients to his fellow REALTORS® and to the community at large. He's served as a Director of the Board of the Greater Portland Board of Realtors since 2006 and served as its President in 2011. He consistently chairs a number of Board committees and participates in many others.

He's also a leader in several Fraternal and beneficent organizations such as the Freemasons, and offers his service in support of their many charities. A member of the Stroudwater Christian Church, he's lead guitarist in their Worship team and also volunteers and serves on the Board of the Westcustago Youth Chorale. Always concerned for the welfare of those less fortunate, he lends financial support to "Samaritan's Purse" and the "Raising the Children of God" foundation.

Due to his commitment to both clients and community, Shawn received the Realtor Spirit award in 2014, 2015 REALTOR® of the Year award for the Greater Portland Board of Realtors, and was nominated for the 2015 REALTOR® of the Year award for the State of Maine.

My philosophy about real estate is that I am here to help two parties (buyer and seller) find each other and complete a transaction with a minimum of fuss and headache. I am busy enough to be happy and successful, yet not so busy that I can't take a personal interest in every client. The sale of your home is as important to me as it is to you. That is my commitment to you!

  • Continuing Market Survey & Market Updates
  • I stay on top of the market for you. I monitor the homes that have sold, and those that haven't to ensure that we are still priced appropriately. I will provide updates to you periodically on the current market activity with:
    • New Competing Listings / Status of Competing Listings / Number of Showings
    • Number of Internet Hits
Feedback Reports
I follow up with every buyer agent who shows your home. I will provide their feedback to you as soon as it comes in.

Extensive Internet Exposure
I have invested heavily in the Internet to market my listings. This marketing generates substantial traffic and e-mail inquiries, and is my third largest source of sales. All listings have a virtual tour, interior pictures and descriptive captions.

Virtual Tours
All of my listings have Virtual Tours and are posted to Yahoo Real Estate, Craigslist, MSN, and over twenty other popular search engines and our own web site. Virtual tours consist of both still photos and panoramic "tours", and will include pictures of every photogenic room in your home, the exterior, any view, the street scene, and the neighborhood attractions (parks, restaurants, shopping). I can post up to unlimited photos on each tour!

Creative Solutions/Objective Opinions
As I get to know your home better, and the feedback starts coming in, I may find that the market is objecting to something that neither of us thought of. Or, I may discover special features in your home that should be showcased differently. Either way, I take great pride in my creative solutions - this is, making adjustments as we go along in response to market feedback and conditions. If I see something that needs to be changed, I will tell you - whether or not I think it's something that you want to hear. Many agents seem to assume that their clients are not open to suggestions, and I work on the assumption that that's part of what you're paying me for!!

Latest Technology
I am up to date on the latest real estate technology. I have a professional quality digital camera with a wide angle lens, so that the photos of your home will be sharp and attractive. I have a high quality laser printer that produces amazing graphics and pictures for your home brochures. I make extensive use of e-mail, and I update my web sites several times a week.

My Personal Professionalism
I am a full time real estate agent. Representing my clients is my top priority. I am responsive to inquiries by both buyers and other agents. I am respected in the real estate community as a "quality agent" which means that other agents will be happy to show my listings to their buyers. They know that I am professional, fair and creative which makes their job just a little easier.

As a REALTOR®, I am a member of the National Association of REALTORS® and am bound by their Code of Ethics. I am also committed to upholding the expectations of my company, Green Tree Realty.

However, I personally offer my own Listing Services Guarantee to you.

My service guarantee is simple. I do what I say I'm going to do, when I say I'm going to do it. If you are unhappy with my service, you may terminate our agreement. No questions asked.
I Commit To:
  • Returning all phone calls
  • Being prepared for every meeting
  • Providing weekly marketing updates
  • Pursuing feedback from all agents who show your home

I truly appreciate your business.

Client Testimonials:

"Shawn helped me buy my first home in Portland. He is very knowledgeable about everything a new homeowner needs to know. He is personable, easy to work with, and timely. He genuinely cares about his clients.

When I decided to sell this same home and relocate, I did not hesitate to call Shawn. I knew he was the one I wanted to help me, since I was so pleased working with him the first time. He had my home listed immediately and was available to set up showings the very same day. In less than 24 hours, my home was under contract. He used new technology to make it easy for me to sign my papers right on my phone while I was white water rafting miles away!

In each and every circumstance, I was extremely pleased with how things were handled. Not once have I been disappointed in Shawn. Anyone would be lucky to have him as their realtor!"

- Rachel Roberts


"We looked at multiple houses and conversed with Shawn in detail about our wants, needs and price range. He met all of our expectations! He never made us feel like we were pains, to picky or not important. Shawn provides world class service with a smile and good sense of humor. If you are from out of town and looking for a home that is to your liking, he will search with you until you find it!"

- Ryan & Fran Tracy Dunn

My boyfriend and I were purchasing our first home together and Shawn made it a very enjoyable and easy process. He never made us feel pressured to buy a home and was incredibly knowledgeable about each property we saw. He approached each property from a neutral standpoint and presented us with the Pro's and Con's to each home. Shawn was very prompt with answering all of our questions, be it by email or phone. He was there for us every step of the way! Even after the sale was done he has still been there to answer any of our questions. Shawn is a pleasure to work with and we look forward to having more opportunities with him in the future. If you are looking for someone that is going to support you from beginning to end, and even longer, Shawn is that person.

- Jennifer Lapierre

We felt so lucky to have found Shawn. We were house hunting in a very tight market, and it was tough to navigate. We looked for at least 7 months for our house, and he got us in promptly to every home we wanted to see, always being patient and calm no matter how many places we went to (which was a lot). Having renovated houses himself, he looked with a critical eye at every house we saw. If there were problems, he pointed them out. He repeatedly said he didn't want us in a house we wouldn't be happy with. When we were frustrated, he calmed us, saying something would come along. And it did. We got to know Shawn well enough that when he said "I would buy this house" we had a good one. The 3rd house we made an offer on we finally got. He became psychiatrist while we waited to see if our offer was accepted, calming our anxieties. I am certain we would not have found and closed on our house if it weren't for Shawn being our advocate. He's a great guy with a no-pressure attitude. We will now ask him to sell our other house!

- Susan Selbe

Shawn was an absolute pleasure to work with. Fairly new to the area, my fiance and I began a search for a duplex this early spring. Shawn was very attentive, always available, and most importantly very knowledgeable when we attended showings. I was most impressed at the level of detail he would go into when explaining pros/cons about each property, and what would need fixing to get up to code, etc. Shawn was able to get us in on bids as early as 1.5 hours after showing, and used his professional connections to get the inside scoop on many properties. He was also instrumental in helping us navigate through the often confusing settlement process. Shawn was in attendance for every meeting to help ensure we understood the ins-and-outs of what each line item meant. Shawn is an extremely hard worker, who has been in this industry a long time. His knowledge, and ability to put the client's needs first, really shows in his professionalism. Can't say enough good things. There's a reason he won agent of the year.

- James Macisso

Shawn sourced property in which I might be interested, accompanied me on a series of visits to those properties, and provided advice and expertise all along the way, including with all legal and financial matters. Frankly, as I was based in Ireland and looking for houses in Maine, I couldn't have managed everything without him, and was deeply grateful for his help, kindness and patience. Subsequently Shawn has taken care of the payment of bills, and the monitoring of the property, which is a considerable weight off my shoulders. In short, he's the best Realtor I've ever met - decent, and scrupulously honest. Couldn't recommend him more highly.

- Author- John Connolly

Shawn was a true pleasure to work with! We looked forward to each house showing to not only check out a potential home, but to see him. He's as hard a worker as they come: staying up to wee hours of the evening to draw up paperwork, take our phone calls, and set up showings. I think he went above and beyond what I would expect in a realtor. Extremely knowledgeable and experienced - not another new guy in the business. He made everything seem less overwhelming as first time home buyers and we knew he was looking out for us. Couldn't imagine going through the process of purchase our home without him.

- Kelsie Camire

Professional, honest and patient. We were buyers. Shawn went way above and beyond our expectations. He is not only extremely knowledgable of the real estate market/listings, but the lending market as well. He was able to answer every question and provide not only guidance but support along the way. Once we found the house we wanted to purchase, we requested a few prior to purchase "to do items" from the seller. These items were contingent of our purchase. If it were not for Shawn taking the full responsibility of those to do items, they would not have been completed. He is the reason for us being in our new home, which we absolutely love. I would recommend Shawn to anyone who is either selling or buying.

- Kim Johnson

Shawn was the best experience we could have asked for in a real estate broker. He was highly professional from the first step, and went above and beyond our expectations of our first home-buying experience. The house we bid on had multiple offers on the table, and Shawn pushed ours through. We got a great place at an amazing price, and I don't think it would have happened as smoothly without Shawn's guidance and wisdom in the business. We sold our house in 3 weeks. Definitely unexpected! Shawn as usual was very supportive and open to discussion; to all of our unending questions. You never made us feel like a bother. Thank you Shawn, we appreciated all of your suggestions and recommendations, which we took all under advisement. :) Also, thank you for the moving check list. You are and were an excellent agent for us, I would recommend you to anyone! We will miss you.

- Fran Tracy

Shawn helped me to sell my home and purchase a new home. He worked with me in a very tough market to find a buyer with the best possible sale price and to get a quick closing on a new home, to be in just before the school year started. Shawn spent a tremendous amount of time working up the contracts, showing me properties and making sure everything fell into place with my short timetable. I was comfortable knowing that he had my back, all the details were covered, and that I didn't have to follow up on everything and worry about surprises. I had my hands full with the moving aspects and day to day business, and Shawn made it much easier for me because I didn't have to worry about everything else. He handled it all!! Shawn is honest, no-nonsense and upfront, exactly what you need when you are looking for the best possible outcome in what could have been a stressful experience.

- Anne McConnell

Shawn was very knowledgeable about towns and locations in Southern Maine. He was very quick to respond to emails and texts. He was very patient and didn't mind answering many questions from a first-time home buyer. He had many contacts which helped speed the buying process when we found a house to buy and our offer was accepted.

- Monique Sullivan

Working with Shawn was great, he guided us through what needed to be done to get the property ready to show. He did a market analysis and we priced it right and we had 4 offers in the first 24 hours and we were under contract within 2 days. Shawn helped get the closing arranged within our busy schedule. We couldn't be happier about the service we got from Shawn and would highly recommend him.

- Rachel Roberts

Shawn has been very personable throughout this rather unique and difficult sale. I would recommend him to anyone looking sell or purchase a home and will definitely use him again when it comes time to sell my other home. Shawn was always understanding and honest in his assessment of the property and was more patient than I would have ever been in selling the place.

- Jessica Irish

Our latest purchase experience with Shawn was quite pleasant, we have never to this day dealt with such a professional, knowledgeable and tenacious agent. Our purchase experience was a bit unique to say the least , being that the owner / sellers were stationed in Seattle Washington while we were here in Portland Maine. That said, Shawn expedited a seamless transaction of communications, signings, mandatory priority mailings etc.. In the end, we were home and it felt like family got us there. My advice to anyone reading this and considering Shawn as their agent, hire him sooner than later.

- Dale Johnson

Shawn helped us find our dream house. He never gave up! I would recommend Shawn to anyone who wants to buy a home. Especially if you have specific needs and budget. As a bonus, we made an awesome friend!

- Karen Carter

I knew that Shawn was "the right guy for the job" the moment I spoke to him. He's impeccably honest, and he's fun too. He made the process as painless as possible. He knows everything there is to know about Portland, and he's equally well connected with other realtors and related professionals.

- Michael Ross

Shawn is the best! He has in depth knowledge of the housing market and treats each transaction as if he is personally buying a home. It is easy to completely trust his guidance. I would strongly recommend him to anyone looking for the perfect fit! He really listens to what you looking for and helps you find it. You can not go wrong with selecting Shawn to be your realtor. Thank you for helping me find my new home, Shawn!!

- Connie Martin

Shawn helped us to purchase our first home recently. He is very professional, knowledgeable, and easy to work with. We had a lot of setbacks in the house buying process which Shawn dealt with masterfully. We are definitely recommending him to friends and family and would work with him again. Top notch!

- Ruby Monahan

Shawn was always right on top of the competition and we never had to wait long to hear back from him. He is also a very attentive people person and actually listens to his clients needs and wants. If I ever purchase another home he will be the first person I contact.

- Heather Pace

Shawn has been going the extra mile for me since day one. I buy low price foreclosers from time to time and a lot of realtors don't seem very interested. Shawn has stepped up to work with me

- Bob Petrino

Shawn sold my last condo unit almost immediately after listing it. He was able to help me get a top dollar sale in a very timely manner. I've since built a long term relationship with Shawn and he always delivers.

- Developer- Jeff Corbin

We looked at multiple houses and conversed with Shawn in detail about our wants, needs and price range. He met all of our expectations!
