Why Work With Us?
Here's what our satisfied customers are saying about us:
While investigating a move to Washington County, I'm sure we put Janine's patience to the test. Yet she fielded every question, offered every resource and made herself available whenever we needed her. She always made us feel as if we were her top priority. She even showed us some homes during Hurricane Arthur because we couldn't bear to miss a weekend with her! Janine knows every nook and cranny of her territory as well as the details of every listing. She ultimately found just the right home for us. She worked tirelessly with us through every detail of our purchase. She made us feel as if we were a welcome family member returning home rather than just another customer. Her work ethic and commitment to her clients can not be overstated. We are happy to recommend her to others and to be able to call her our friend.

I am happy to give the highest recommendation for Debbie Holmes as my realtor.
Debbie is patient, kind, funny, understanding, smart, AND gets the job done very professionally. She was very responsive to my phone calls, texts, e-mail’s—patiently saying that selling a house is s big deal for most people, and fairly stressful.
Debbie did a great job for me. We signed our realtor paperwork on Feb. 13, and closed May 16—yes, just over 3 months in Downeast Maine—with Debbie showing the house in the snow and cold. She easily and professionally discusses the details of price, how best to show the house, comparables, going into contract, etc. The 3D virtual tour she recorded was spot on, and pretty much sold the house. The 4 people who came to see the house saw this 3D tour and more good pictures online first. We didn’t even put a sign in the yard (snowbanks). My neighbor who comes for the summer, was impressed by the booklet of info on the house being for sale that was mailed to her.
I will actually miss Debbie, as I am moving out of state. Again, I highly recommend her. (And my dog really likes her! Best recommendation...)
Five stars for Rick Theriault. From the first contact to the conclusion of the closing Rick was patient and courteous. He gently educated me about the market for my property and kept me informed of developments at all times. It was a pleasure working with him. And oh yeah, by the way -- he got my property sold, and far sooner than I was expecting.Five stars for Rick Theriault.

Sheila Huckins surpassed my expectations as an agent. Her frequent communications kept my finger on the pulse of the action and she sold my land in record time, all the while being sensitive to my reluctance to part with a piece of land I loved. She has my great respect for the way she handled my sale.
Sheila became my agent when Mary Vineyard, Donna Vineyard, and I decided to put up the adjoining properties that we own for sale, in the hope that a buyer could be found for the adjoining pieces.
Sheila worked well with us from the beginning - helping us set a good price for our land, coming up with a good and attractive listing for the land online, and following up when potential buyers began to express an interest in it.
Sheila kept us informed every step of the way, and was there whenever we had a question or needed help. A buyer was found quickly. Sheila helped us with the sale process as well.
I can readily recommend her and United County Lifestyle Properties of Maine to anyone who would like to sell property in Downiest Maine!
I’d like to take a moment to tell your company what great help and guidance Christina Robinson provided to us in searching for, finding, and then working through the entire purchasing process for our new home. And, it was through her help that we are the very proud and happy owners of a wonderful piece of property in Washington County, Maine.
Christina patiently worked with us in viewing various properties and giving us valuable information from her local perspective. Her trusted and valued opinion on these properties was key for our settling on the piece of property we purchased. We truly could not have discovered the wonderful piece of property and house that we ultimately found without Christina and her guidance. We have nothing but the most positive things to say about her and her service. Thank you to Christina Robinson and United Country – Lifestyle Properties of Maine for all you did!

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 *****+
