Maine Life Real Estate Testimonials

Tell Us Your Story

MLRE made buying our first home a great experience.

Mindy was patient and open to all of our needs and wants (no matter how specific), always offering to talk through any concerns throughout the process, and never afraid to explore a creepy basement! We will always be grateful for her help in finding our ideal first home!

Mindy Phillips was absolutely wonderful as we searched for a house in such a challenging market.

She really listened to all the details we desired in a home and was extremely patient throughout the whole process. We ALWAYS felt like she had our best interest in mind, and she was transparent in explaining the intricacies of real estate. I highly recommend Mindy if you want to enjoy your search for a new home!

Marnie listened patiently to our needs and walked us effortlessly (from our perspective) to where we wanted to be.

They all proved to be open, friendly and forthcoming, anticipating many of our needs. Their expertise was demonstrated in their timely responses to our questions and concerns. We had resisted enlisting a buyers agent due to in part to the lack of connection with the many brokers we met along the way. In the end we trusted in Maine Life Real Estate Company and were not disappointed. In retrospect we would have been better off enlisting them in our search sooner. Few organizations have the confidence to post their core values so prominently. Even fewer live up to them as they do. We hope we will be able to work with them again in the future. For now, we will be making our new house our home.

Kim does an amazing job start to finish.

She has an excellent feel for the current market and what helps a property sell. Kim handled our listing with a level of professionalism 2nd to none all while keeping things personal enough to make us feel as though we were her only priority. Our listing ended exactly how Kim had predicted, which exceeded our expectations in all aspects. Kim's experience and knowledge paid dividends for us when helping us navigate all of the in's and out's of selling a property. She was able to answer all of our questions promptly and in a manner that was clear and understandable. Kim has our business for life!

Steve Leary

As first time home buyers, my spouse and I were so grateful for the patient support and guidance we received from Mindy, Heather, and the Maine Life team!

They were helpful and gracious throughout the whole home buying process, and were always quick to respond to our questions and concerns. I can't recommend them enough!

Chelsea did a phenomenal job - as a first-time buyer, having a realtor who maintained open communication and transparency was a huge boon.

She put in more work than one could expect, and assuredly much more than what I could see, all while retaining an unyielding enthusiasm that kept me confident in her actions. Her effort and energy do not go unappreciated, and my indirect interactions with her company would lead me to expect the same level of excellence from other members of their team.

Both selling my home and buying my new home, Maine Life Real Estate was the best I've ever worked with.

Kim Tarbox helped me through the entire process, often going above and beyond. The entire team is incredibly professional. I couldn't recommend them highly enough!

Beth W.

My family has bought two houses with Kim Tarbox and sold one, and she was incredible to work with every time!

Kim was able to accommodate my growing family's hectic schedule and helped guide us through the process from start ("Hey! We are ready to buy our homestead! Our ideal location is the southern half of Maine!") to finish ("Woo! We have the most amazing homestead in the perfect community for our family!!"). More specifically, Kim and her team helped us find and buy our starter home with an FHA mortgage (the notary thought the dates must be wrong during the closing, so little time had passed between the offer and the close date). She also helped us sell our starter home to a buyer with another FHA mortgage (and a work relocation and rent-before-they-buy situation) in under 2 months! She ALSO helped us buy our dream homestead after we outgrew said starter home!! Simply put, we couldn't recommend Kim and her team more highly.

Beth W.

We started working with Kim about a year ago when we wanted to sell our rental property.

We sold our property quickly and had a wonderful experience. Then about 6 months later we contacted Kim again to help us purchase a camp for our family. We couldn't have asked for a better person to help with this journey. She was easy to talk to, responsive to our questions or concerns, and knew how to advocate for us and our needs. All the other team members from this company that we worked with behind the scenes was also very attentive and made us feel well taken care of during this process. We would highly recommend this company.

Rob Edgerley is one of the most honest, giving and thoughtful Realtors that I have ever met.

I am so impressed with Rob's knowledge and client care. He has developed an amazing team and takes care of his client as if they were his one and only. I can't say enough great things about Rob. Don't risk calling anyone else. You just found the best Realtor in Maine!

Mindy Phillips is a consummate diplomat and professional.

I cannot recommend her more highly. She is poised, patient, and effective. There were several things I noticed about her approach to me as a buyer that set her apart - among them, abundant grace and good manners.

Maine Life Real Estate did an amazing job helping my wife and I purchase our first home.

They came strongly recommended from a close friend of ours and we could not be happier with the result. From the flexible hours through the constant updates during the buying process, they kept us informed and prepared to meet our closing deadline.

Wonderful experience, the Maine Life Team helped us turn a chapter in our lives by helping us sell our home of 25 years and in turn also aided us in finding our next home.

Thanks so much to Rob and Cindy.

I moved to Maine 6 years ago and hired Rob to help us find a house, He found the perfect house for us and he made the process very smooth and pleasant. I stayed in touch with Rob over the years and when it came time to sell our house due to a relocation, Rob was the first person I contacted. Again - I put full trust in Rob and was not disappointed. He and Heather are professional, courteous, are excellent listeners and are not pushy at all. Not only has Rob been a great realtor for us, but he has become a good friend as well.
