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.
