Why Work With Us?
Here's what our satisfied customers are saying about us:
I would highly recommend Vicki to anyone looking for a terrific broker! I currently live in New York and just purchased a home in Lincoln, Maine last week. Needless to say, the process could have been extremely difficult given the distance, but Vicki was ready, willing and able to assist and made the whole transaction seamless for me. She provided me with the necessary contacts to purchase and close on my new home and, without hesitation, stood in for me when I couldn't get up there, such as for the house inspection, etc. She truly went above and beyond the call, and there are not enough adjectives to express my gratitude for all her help and many kindnesses!
My husband and I strongly feel that we were in great hands with the selling of our home. Vicki is very knowledgeable and professional but she also is very down to earth and friendly. We highly recommend her for your real estate needs! Thank you Vicki. -Cheryl and Joe Belding
In early May, we contacted United Country-Lifestyle Properties of Maine, with the intention of putting our camp in southern Aroostook County on the market. We made the call to the agency on a Saturday morning, and Rick met us at our camp that very afternoon. From this first meeting until the day we signed the papers to formally sell the camp Rick was with us every step of the way. He was diligent about answering our questions, kept us appraised with regards to prospective buyers, and assisted us in the process of being realistic about the real estate market.
In a nutshell, Rick was a professional in all aspects of the sale. He followed up with prospective buyers, discussing with their realtors the concerns and compliments that accompanied each showing and apprised us at each juncture. He listened to what people were looking for in a property and when appropriate gave them insight into the reasons why our camp could and would best meet their needs.
Rick is a Maine Guide and lifelong resident of the northern Penobscot/southern Aroostook area. With his working knowledge of the woods, lakes and streams of northern Maine, Rick is a natural for matching prospective buyers with properties that will meet their dreams for living with nature in the great State of Maine.
Rick was a positive influence in the sale of our camp. He was a cheerleader with regard to our property, a savvy analyst with regard to the appraisal procedure and a competent closer when the right buyer came to the front.
In honesty, we have had nothing but positive experiences with Rick and would highly recommend him as a sales agent one can trust when making the decision to place your property on the market. As a sales agent, Rick Theriault is a man of honesty and integrity.
At first, I thought the commission rate was high. However, with all the hard work and time that Rick and his brokerage company put into my property listing, we got exactly what we paid for. Rick told us that he would sell our ranch at a fair market value, and that is exactly what he did. Rick and his broker came out to our property in the Winter and did a photo shoot. They returned in the Spring and did an updated photo shoot. Then they returned again to do a 3D virtual tour. They came back yet again with a drone pilot and did an entire video of the property, including the land and buildings on it. Rick and his company actively marketed our property, while the previous real estate company just sat by the phone waiting for it to ring. My hat is off to Rick and company...outstanding job! - Dave Salkind
I just want to take a moment and thank you for being my realtor and selling my home. As you know this was my first experience selling a home, and prior to hiring you, my home had been on the market for 2yrs with very little showings during that time. The economy wasn’t good and I had nearly lost all hope we would find a buyer for my home in a short time much less sell my home for much of a profit.
When I came to you I was discouraged but I had a really good friend who recommended McPhail Realty and told me she wouldn’t ever use another real estate company after her experience with your company. She said you were honest people and very professional. She had a great experience with your company. My friend’s experience and her words gave me a direction and hope my home might sell through your company. So I took her advice and hired you. Something I am so grateful today I did.
After listing my home with your company, it was less than two months and you found an interested buyer and one month later we signed the papers and closed on the sale. I am so grateful my friend recommended you. Plus the great bonus, we sold my home for exactly what you recommended we should list the house and property for. Your experience selling homes in our area helped tremendously. From start to finish, through every little obstacle that faced us, and with the team work I witnessed, everything seemed to flow with hope and encouragement and the sale was a great success. I am very; very grateful McPhail Realty is in our community and will be recommending you to all those I love who are looking for a good real estate company. Thank you for your friendly and professional service and for guiding me through this new journey.
"We were extremely pleased with Phil McPhail and everyone at United Country. We can't imagine anyone better" - John and Gail Cooke
"I would like to thank you for selling our property in Burlington. The level of service that we received far exceeded my expectations and was very much appreciated." - Peter Cruickshank
Thank you for your professional assistance in assessing our land in Willimantic. Your thorough, clear, concise outline of this special property made it possible for my brother and me to make an informed decision and to better know what we have. Your willingness to help us has been such a breath of fresh air. And thank you for doing the same for other family members. You're wonderful to work with and allow us to feel confident in our property and its future.
Sincerest regards, Beth Jones
"When my husband and I were looking for waterfront property that we could park our camper on, fish, and let our dog run, we found United Country Real Estate to be extremely helpful. Not only were they able to help us find what we were looking for, they were able to give us information on the shoreland rules and fishing and contact information for more details...and then put us in contact with the local credit union for financing. Thank you for an easy time in buying our new vacation site."
