We recently cashed in our chips in NY state to move to the island. While Veena was patiently helping us buy a very modest home on MDI, she was also listing one, probably several, seven million dollar properties. Yet, we felt like we could have been her only client, because of how much effort and advocacy she invested in the process. Veena’s standards are high and as a result, we lucked out on her recommendations for inspectors and service providers — they were all exemplary.

When problems cropped up in inspections, Veena negotiated skillfully. We never, ever got a whiff of the usual dynamic with realtors, which is to brush aside complications as soon as possible so the deal can be sealed. If you want to experience someone representing you like a gladiator in the ring, this may be your agent. Compared to my experience with other agents, Veena simply works harder, thinks harder and earns your trust through every step of a complex and sometimes nerve-wracking purchase. She’s simply a pro.

Steve was the perfect person to work with. He was astute, responsive, brilliant, funny, and anticipated our needs. Articulate, kind and professional, he made buying a home easy. I never thought I’d say that, but it was true. I can’t recommend him highly enough.

No one compares to Steve. Literally, we were first time home buyers and had never interacted with a real estate agent previously so we don’t really have any basis for comparison. That said, Steve was very open and honest with us during the home buying process. He held our hands throughout the process and provided advice on how to shop for a home, price range possibilities, wants vs needs, selecting a mortgage lender, bidding, negotiation, and closing. It is clear that Steve has a great understanding of the Acadia region which he used to help us select, bid, and ultimately buy a home. He also has a great working relationship with other real estate agents/agencies, mortgage lenders, and real estate attorneys in the area making the buying process easier for us

Steve is professional while being friendly. I was told by a prospective buyer that he was very thorough in pointing out the positive aspects of my property. He was always accommodating to meet with prospective buyers to show the property. He was successful in negotiating a sum very close to the  asking price. It is a bonus that he is also very personable and very knowledgeable about Mt Desert

Veena was incredible to work with for the sale of my commercial lodging business. She knows the unique business climate in the Bar Harbor area for lodging properties. Despite quite a few ups and downs in the process, she kept all the details organized and understandable both for me as the seller  and the buyer.

We recently closed on a home located in Bar Harbor, ME, with the help of Steve. The process, which began earlier in the summer, was smooth and generally enjoyable throughout, due in large part to Steve’s great attitude, his helpfulness, and local knowledge. His ability to comment on the benefits  and drawbacks on any one location, as well as the internal merits of the home and property, even on a micro-scale, was very helpful to us. We are delighted with how things turn out and we would not hesitate to recommend Steve to any potential home buyers looking across the area.

If you have interest in Bar Harbor she is a must have realtor!!!! She  (Veena) knows her market and knows the competition. She is the realtor we will have for every Bar Harbor sales.
