Why Work With Us?
Here's what our satisfied customers are saying about us:
I recently sold two homes through Lifestyle Properties of Maine and my experience with Peter McPhail was exceptionally positive. I've used realtors in the past and never had the level of service I received with Peter. My situation was fairly complex, and Peter handled all aspects, including meeting several times with the town code officer and surveyor, which included several follow up meetings regarding the many issues that arose. Through the entire process, he remained in frequent contact with me and often came by to assist with all problems as they came up. He even helped us move! Not only is he a consummate professional, Peter is a very kind, honest, pleasant and patient person, whom I now consider a friend. I have the utmost regard for Peter, and the agency, and can recommend Lifestyle Properties with complete confidence.

We recently purchased land on Jim's Head in Lubec, ME. Debbie made the whole process go smoothly and helped us greatly as first time land buyers. She was very professional and supportive the whole time. We give her 5 stars in every way and she made us feel as if we were the most important customer she had.
She is a tremendous asset to your company.

We meet Debbie Holmes over a dozen years ago when looking for property in the Lubec area.
Since then she has helped us with buying land and buying a lot with a cabin. She also steered us when we sold a piece of land. She truly knows the area and the real estate market. She works at keeping up with trends and real estate selling tools. When you work with Debbie, you gain a friend, not just business acquaintance. Even though our visits to the area are infrequent, and we may go months without seeing her, she always remembers us by name. She’s always genuinely happy to see you, whether out and about, or if you drop by her office to say hello. Debbie stays involved in the community, as a member of the Lions Club, the Planning Board, and historical society.
Debbie Holmes blends professionalism and integrity with small town friendliness. She takes the time to listen and understand what the buyer/seller is looking for, then tries her best to realize their dreams. She will spend whatever time it takes traipsing through woods/raw land in good or bad weather, and does it with humor and a smile. Debbie has a wealth of contacts that might be needed after the sale - i.e. permits, contractors, needed services, etc. Debbie is very proficient at combining business and fun, it was such a pleasure to work with her!!! I would HIGHLY recommend Debbie Holmes of United CountryReal Estate/Lifestyle Properties of Maine to anyone interested in buying or selling property in Lubec, Maine
I give her Five + stars in all categories:
> Local knowledge *****+
> Process expertise *****+
> Responsiveness *****+

My husband and I had the pleasure of meeting Vicki Peters nearly one year ago while visiting the Lincoln, Maine area. We stopped by her office to preview waterfront listings. Vicki was pleasant, knowledgeable and accommodating. We had lots of questions. We did view a few properties during that time. Vicki asked if we would like to receive regular listings. After a year of looking on- line at listings, there was one that called out to us in mid May.
We took a chance that Vicki was available to show the listing to us on the day after we saw it posted in May 2018. She showed us the property and answered lots of questions for us. We made an offer on the same day. Any questions that she could not answer immediately, she made it a point to get an answer and got right back to us.
We had further questions and requests regarding the property and Vicki made a number of calls to the seller's agent to answer our questions. This involved several phone calls for Vicki.
We were held up by our financial institution several times, and Vicki provided suggestions and support to facilitate a smooth closing for us. If it weren't for Vicki's knowledge, communication skills and sense of urgency, we may not have been able to acquire the property.
We would highly recommend Vicki to anyone seeking to purchase a property.
She knew of many local resources and contacts for us to begin making contacts with. These folks have been nothing but wonderful in answering questions about future property development on our new parcel of land. We feel as though we have made a new friend in the Lincoln area. We are grateful for the outstanding job she has done for us.
My wife and I are new to Maine and Down East and Christina helped us work on acquiring a house as part of a 1031 tax exchange. After meeting us and learning our tastes and requirements, we looked at a number of properties and after we returned to California, she kept us appraised of new possibilities. Once we found a house we liked, she helped us navigate the tax exchange and brought in the right local people to help, making the process relatively painless and drama free. We then purchased a second house as part of the tax exchange with Christina's help. I recommend her highly."
Christina helped us find the perfect property! She is a pleasure to work with and I recommend her to everyone looking to buy or sell in the area!"

Life Style Properties of Maine Lincoln Phil and Carmen McPhail, they were professional attentive knowledgeable and extremely helpfull thru the entire sale process I would recommend anyone looking to buy a house or property to use there realestate Branch of life style properties of Maine.
Its been almost two months since Vickie completed the sale of our home. She was a pleasure to work with during the whole process. She impressed us during the initial interview and was very proactive as an agent. The first step was setting the price and establishing any options. Local comparative sales were presented as a basis for our listing price. She prepared an excellent handout for interested buyers. As potential buyers viewed the property the feedback was prompt and useful in developing the offering further with possibilities of more or less acreage. We did not use signage in front of the property as it was in rural Maine and advertising a vacant house was not appropriate. Vickie always offered her marketing opinion and pushed back on some of the requests we made. We felt we always came to reasonable decisions on how to proceed. She was diligent in following the agreement with clear communication and documentation. The closing was handled smoothly during our absence using our local attorney.
We live in Massachusetts and found the perfect lake land in Maine. We closed on it a few days ago but I could honestly say if it wasn't for Vicky it probably would have never happened. It still doesn't seem real, I keep telling my husband to pinch me. I could only give her a five star but she really deserves much more!
