Maine Real Estate Seller & Buyer Client Testimonials

"Having owned several pieces of real estate in New York for over 30 years, and wishing to buy real estate in Portland, we were apprehensive when choosing a Realtor. We were extremely fortunate to find and work with Veronica Schneider. She listened to our wishes, found our property in Portland, Maine, and handled the entire real estate transaction efficiently and professionally. She left no stone unturned. Currently she is handling a sale in Portland for us and we trust her implicitly. Veronica epitomizes professionalism, integrity, competence, and courtesy in her work. It has been a privilege and an honor to work with Veronica Schneider these past two years and there is no other Realtor whom we would choose to work with in Maine. She is a credit to her profession."

- John and Carol Swetz Jr.

"My wife & I live in Kentucky. Ed Mosher expedited our Maine transaction although the cottage we purchased was some distance out of Mid Coast into Down East. He worked with us over 2 years with no assurance of a sale. The cottage is our summer home as it was for the sellers who reside in MA. Other complications arose from our choice of an out of state lender located in NC.

Ed proved excellent & professional in coordinating the various twists & turns . His sense of humor was great; his responsiveness left nothing to be desired. Phone calls & e-mails were answered swiftly. His family probably hasn't forgiven him for showing us our cottage on Mother's Day.

Looking for the best Maine has to offer ? Call Ed Mosher!"

"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

"For years I had been told by everyone, not just the banks, that as a single person with a limited income, I would not be able to get the financing I needed to purchase my first home. When I met Shawn Boulet, he not only said he absolutely could he help me with locating the necessary financing, he made it possible for me to fulfill my dream of becoming a landlord. Now, two and a half years later, i have three apartment buildings, and a great second income! Shawn Boulet has been there for me every step of the way, he's always honest and realistic with me, he gives me great advice on all of my questions, and has been my mentor, not just my realtor! "

- C. Towne

"We can’t believe that it’s been over two months since our closing. It seemed like it took forever to find our new home... Thank you Ed for being there when we found the 'one'. You were so patient and a delight to work with. We will always remember the marathon day!"

- The Peters

"Shawn Boulet helped our family locate to a great neighborhood in a great house! His knowledge and incite made it all happen for us. Shawn Boulet took the time to show us all our options. He helped make the first time home buying experience enjoyable and smooth. He is very good!"

- Timothy Chalmers

"Mike really made our dream of buying a home a reality. His willingness to share his knowledge and find us a home that we would be comfortable with really put us at ease! He was very quick to respond to all of my calls and emails. Mike never tried to push us into a sale and even made finding a home inspector a breeze. I would highly recommend Mike to future clients. If we ever buy a home again, we will surely give him a call!"

- Fred and Melissa

"Mike is fantastic. I had 6 weeks notice to try and move out of state for my business. He worked quickly and diligently to sell my home, so much so it went under contract the very first day it posted in the MLS. He continued to follow up with us and the buyers agent through out the inspection and closing process. I was able to sell my home and have the closing completed prior to my move. He was very respectful of my feelings and time frame for getting so much done in such a short amount of time. I couldn't have asked for more."

- Shelley

"Mike was a pleasure to work with. Coming to the area with no knowledge of the Portland market, Mike made the process very manageable and enjoyable. He was very professional, attentive to details, and made a potentially intimidating process into a fun one. Moreover, I really appreciated Mike's no-pressure approach to the process of home-buying. To his large credit, he acted in an objective way, counseling and advising, rather than pressuring and manipulating. It was this that made it so comfortable to work with him."

- Andrew

"Veronica is the epitome of a professional. I have worked with her both as an investor and a real estate appraiser and she and her staff get the job done, always return calls and e-mails promptly and always go the extra yard."

- Kenneth R. Tubbs (KRT Properties)

"Veronica is a straight forward and a hardworking broker. She will do anything to help a client. She's always treated me with respect and honesty. She made buying and selling real estate very easy"

- B. Graham

"It was a pleasure working with Shawn Boulet and his staff at Green Tree Realty. From the day we listed our condo to the day we closed on the sale and moved into our new home, we felt that Shawn made us a priority, communicated all the details we needed to know and worked seven days a week to accommodate our schedules and needs. He listened to what we were looking for and helped us focus on finding the right home instead of bombarding us with homes that didn't fit out needs. We love our new home and sincerely appreciate the hard work and attention to detail that Shawn provided. He made a potentially stressful situation very easy! Thanks Shawn and your thoughtful staff at Green Tree Realty. This is the second time in 6 years that Shawn has helped us buy a home and we will continue to look for his guidance and professionalism in the future and would definitely recommend his services to others."

- Kirk & Eileen Fongemie

"We recently purchased a home through Realtor Ed Mosher. We had complete trust in Ed's knowledge of the local area and properties. He was always ready to show us a property when we requested a viewing. As out of state buyers we communicated often with Ed and he always replied promptly to our queries. The entire process was made pleasant because of Ed's wonderful ability to communicate so well with us and our family. We are very pleased with our new purchase and highly recommend Ed for anyone who is looking to buy or sell a property."

- John Laskey and Cynthia Dias

"I meet Veronica in 2004 when she was the listing broker on an investment property I bought… and I decide then that I wanted her energy and knowledge on MY side the next time. When we bought our residence in 2006, my decision paid off as she worked tirelessly to find the right property for us. I'll be back for the next deal, and I've recommended her to many friends and associates."

- S. Smith

"I've been involved with Veronica in the purchase of 2 separate homes on 2 separate occasions over the past 4 years. Veronica's stellar attitude and sincere compassion for her clients makes it an enjoyable venture every time. Best part, it doesn't stop at the sale/purchase of your home. You end up investing in a valuable friendship as well. Veronica is always there with names and numbers of repair, maintenance or mortgage personnel when in need.

If you want the home your looking for or to be sure and sell your present home Veronica Schneider (who is Green Tree Realty in my eyes) will get'er done for you. A more than satisfied customer and friend."

- E. Ribeiro

"We live in NJ and had decided that we would like to make Maine our new home. We went on line and seeing many houses that we were interested in looking at in person, sent out a request to several realtors. Ed responded immediately and we began talking on the phone to make arrangements to meet with him. Ed spent hours with us each day that we met and took us to every house we were interested in seeing, and suggested houses that we hadn't found on our own. On several occasions, there were houses over an hour's drive away, but Ed was willing to make arrangements with the selling realtor and take us to see them, pointing out interesting facts about local history in the places that we rode through on the way. When we found the house that we wanted to make our own, Ed negotiated with the selling realtor and guided and advised us every step of the way from beginning to end. Every call we made to him was answered immediately or he got back to us in less than an hour. We had never bought a home before and were truly naive about the process. Ed made it seem like no more effort than a trip to the grocery store for bread and milk. We can't emphasize enough how lucky we were to find Ed. His attention to every detail was without fault and we would tell anyone who is looking for a home in Maine to ask Ed to represent them."

- Gordon and Lynne Kontrath

"Veronica has been patiently working with my husband and I since the spring of 2007. In our time together Veronica has proved to be honest, efficient, dependable, and most of all understanding and supportive. We truly enjoy the time we spend with her and appreciate the experiences she brings with her in her practice as well as her genuine down to earth nature."

- S. Jorgensen

"Veronica is a very devoted and knowledgeable individual in this field. She took the time to explain things and spent some precious evening hours showing me listings. I appreciate her for her frankness and easy-going nature. She has a good heart for her clients and for society, in general. I had full confidence in her and would recommend her to anyone."

- T. Bishop

"There are three words which quickly come to mind when I recall our experience with Green Tree's Realtor Ed Mosher: Integrity, Humility, Support. From the first time we met him, he communicated all of these attributes in ways that allowed us to trust him, be open and relaxed with him, and also feel that we would not be alone in our adventure/risk to invest in a new home. He was sensitive to our specific needs and tastes, without being domineering or judgmental in any way. We knew that he cared. This is a very rare virtue in these days and times. Even though we lived over 2,500 miles from the property we would eventually buy, we knew Mr. Mosher would not only watch over our investment, but also do everything he could to ensure that our investment was safe, stable and secure. Ed would 'check in' with us every week and give us an update on the property, what was the oil level, were things being done we specifically asked for, was the snow or ice being removed on a timely basis. All in all, Ed worked for us, we felt, as hard as he had worked to find the property we desired. Because of Ed, we have come upon the perfect home for us. It is all about putting the customer's needs before your own. -What goes around comes around. Ed exemplifies by his willingness, attitude, and actions the best of the best we have ever experienced in a Realtor."

"When my wife and I started our house-hunting, we wanted to find a knowledgeable agent that knew the stats and history of several different areas since we were new to the state of Maine. Shawn Boulet helped us research various areas by providing sales comps, school and community information and contacts for others (property inspection, etc.). I have dealt with several other agents and Shawn knows this industry like no other agent I've met. Also, during the negotiation phase of our transaction, I called Shawn several times late at night expecting to get his voice-mail and leave a message, but he picked up at 9pm or later. All in all, his customer service could not have been better, his knowledge of the real estate industry could not be sharper and ultimately he negotiated a great price for the purchase of our home. We appreciated everything he did during this transaction from beginning to end."

- Steve McLeod

"Shawn's help was invaluable while building and buying my first house. He was always there to provide insight, solve problems, and act as an advocate on my behalf. Having him there during an exciting, yet overwhelming, life event was an extreme comfort. He'll be the first one I call next time around."

- Darcy

"I challenge you to find a Realtor® who listens more intently, shows more concern for your personal objectives and utilizes strategic alliances with more competent associates in the local real estate industry."

- Rich Curole

"We are very glad to have met you! Thank you for patience assistance and invaluable knowledge over the past year. You are truly God-sent"

"Phil's hard work, creativity and perseverance was the key to our success in finding a new house. We never thought we would find a home in a neighborhood like the one he found for us, it suites us perfectly. Thanks Phil."

- Chris and Eileen O.

"This was our first time buying a home and we couldn't have asked for a better Realtor. Phil was there to answer every question we had and always went the extra mile for us. We're very grateful to Phil for his time and experience."

- Chris M & Janice F

"Honest, tireless, hardworking, ......Phil is someone that you want in your inner circle for investing. I cannot think of another Real Estate Professional that I would want to work with."

- Jon T.

"I was very pleased with Phil's results. I had listed several properties with him and was surprised that he was able to get them moved as quickly as he did. I had tried a few other realtors before him and they could not get the job done. Phil really got me out of a bind."

- Graeme T.

"My wife and I were in a crunch to sell our home, we had already started the construction process of building a new one. The housing market had started to change, and a proactive approach was required instead of reactive. Phil provide the responsiveness needed to make a difference in the sales process. I believe without his diligence, the sale would not have occurred in the timeframe required."

- John C.

As a first-time homebuyer, I was pretty scared. Shane Kinney made the process easy and virtually stress-free. He was very responsive to my questions, and always willing to drive as many miles as it took to look at properties with me. I valued his opinions, and appreciated any feedback and suggestions he had. I really enjoyed working with him, and love my new home!
