“Ashley always had an answer and/or got us the answer in an extremely timely fashion. I could go on and on and on about Ashley and how absolutely wonderful she is, but you might as well just pick her to be your realtor and find out for yourself! 10 out of 10 would recommend Ashley to anyone looking to purchase their dream home! Words can’t thank you enough, Ashley!”
“We are out-of-state buyers (i.e., from away) seeking to transition our family to Maine. We already own a parcel in Maine that we plan on building upon and retiring to in the coming years. However, for now, we wanted a reasonable low-maintenance place near our forest property that we could use to begin our transition by summering in Maine.
Our personal/work situations are not simple as we have many constantly shifting variables. Many real estate agents would erroneously peg us as ‘shoppers’ rather than ‘buyers’, and not worthy of their time. Ashley, however, was most patient with us throughout our process.
We found a house in area that is relatively close to our land. It was a smaller house, but it would do until we could build on our forest property. Ashley went absolutely above and beyond for us. She took extra photos of the property that were not available online and helped us put in an offer. After it was accepted, Ashley once again stepped in and represented us during the home inspection. Everything proceeded smoothly until the “1st draw lead test” came back with alarmingly high levels of lead that were not revealed in the well water (ALWAYS pay the ~ $60 for this 1st draw lead test, especially if you have children). This is when we discovered that lead solder was used on copper pipes until about 1986 per the EPA (not 1972 or earlier). Replumbing an entire house from out-of-state was a hassle and an additional expense we were not expecting. Ashley provided sound advice and insights that we reflected upon before deciding to unfortunately walk away from that contract.
Shortly thereafter while searching for homes build after 1986 (re: no lead), another house priced to sell came on the market in the same area. Once again Ashley jumped into action, visited the home and provided us with additional photos, video, and information that we needed. It was perfect so she immediately helped us put in an offer at the asking price, only to find out it went under contract to a cash buyer within a few days of being listed. This was no fault of Ashley’s because even the seller’s agent urged the sellers to ask the THREE buyers for “highest & best” offers, but the sellers refused. It just wasn’t meant to be.
So without a means to enjoy our forest property in Maine and the summer wasting away, we decided to go an entirely different direction and purchased a small rustic camp that was for sale adjacent to our forest. Despite what was no doubt a disappointing commission, Ashley cheerfully helped us buy this little camp, and was even able to help us close early! The highest praise we can give Ashley is that we would not hesitate to do business with her again. If you are looking for a camp, house, or land in the greater Bangor area all the way out to Millinocket, do not hesitate to contact Ashley! She is one in a million!”
“My deal got complicated at the end and Ashley adeptly kept things moving in a positive direction and her communication with me was impeccable. I was out of state so she had to be my eyes and ears on a few occasions and her judgement served me well. She is also part of a team that had to step in on a few of my visits since I had little flexibility on when I could be in the area. Her team was great to make sure my visits to the area were productive and I was able to accomplish what I needed to. She also worked very well with my lender to make sure the whole process was seamless.”
“Ashley was a lifesaver! She was prompt in every response, always followed up with any further questions that we had (even the ones that we may have forgotten all about!), but also was also open and honest with us. Purchasing our first home was a great experience with Ashley by our side!”
“Ashley was wonderful. She sent text messages of homes to me to view online and anytime I wanted to see a home she was always accommodating no matter the distance.”
“Wow! Where to even begin?! Ashley was a total star from the very beginning of our home buying process! My Husband and I were both first-time home buyers and we had a pretty specific idea in mind when it came to what we wanted in our first home. We wanted something old, with charm, that we could make in to our own over the years. Ashley never pressured us in to looking a house we knew we wouldn’t like, she took us to homes that matched the description of what we wanted as closely as possible, and within our price range. She made sure to give us space while doing tours, but also made sure to provide us with as much detailed information about the property, point out potential problem areas, and really gave us insight in to what each house might have in store for us, should we choose to purchase it. She never led us astray, and was a vocal advocate for us during our lengthy, very complicated home buying process. For the things we didn’t understand, Ashley always had an answer and/or got us the answer in a extremely timely fashion. I could go on and on and on about Ashley and how absolutely wonderful she is, but you might as well just pick her to be your realtor and find out for yourself! 10 out of 10 would recommend Ashley to anyone looking to purchase their dream home! Words can’t thank you enough, Ashley!!”
“Ashley was highly engaged, positive, and helpful through the process of selling our home. Right from the start she provided a much more thorough analysis of our property than we had seen from other realtors and with a more aggressive asking price. We ended up selling for a considerably higher amount than the other realtors suggested. Her communication was top notch, being readily available even while on personal time. We went through a relatively tough negotiation process and she gave us her honest opinion but still advocated for whatever decision we made. We were out of state at the end of the process and she went out of her way to personally clear out some remaining items in an effort to keep the closing on schedule. Ashley is very dedicated to her job, trustworthy, knowledgeable, and a great person to work with. I would highly recommend her to anyone.”
