Working with Meg was a wonderful experience for us! As first time homebuyers, Meg was an expert when it came to asking all of the right questions, prioritizing what was important to us and being mindful of our budget. She has a blend of professionalism, creativity and ambition. When we found our home, Meg walked us through the process step-by-step, helping us consider all options during the closing process from financing to inspections. During our walk-throughs we envisioned how to make this home our own, Meg’s inspired visions are now our favorite touches to the house. As our agent Meg was not only supportive and accommodating, but always greeted us with a smile and optimism. She is beyond the best, we are so lucky to have found her!

Excellent Realtor!

Having worked previously with Meg as her accountant for the East Ender Restaurant and upon finding out she was now in real estate, Meg was the very first person I contacted when looking for properties to invest in and move Omi’s Coffee Shop to. My experience with her as a business person was such that I knew she would be an excellent realtor and resource and she was… She had a complete understanding of the local zoning rules, building renovation required to meet code and the financing necessary and available to complete the purchase of 372 Cottage Road. Most importantly she was immediately responsive to every question, large and small throughout the process. Without a moments hesitation I would recommend Meg to help both residential and business clients find the perfect property they are looking for with a great and supportive person to guide them through the process.

Excellent and Incredible

Meg was an incredible realtor to work with from start to finish. As first time homebuyers, the entire process was foreign to us. Meg quickly answered every question we had along the way, put our minds at ease, and walked us through each step of the home-buying process with great clarity. As our pipe dreams changed directions from looking at large homesteads up north, to townhouses in Bath, to entering the crazy Portland housing market, Meg took it all in stride and with great patience. She was flexible and worked with our schedule to show us every house that peaked our interest, even taking the time to show us other homes in order to give us a good market comparison. When it came to making an offer, coordinating home inspections and closing procedures, Meg worked quickly to communicate with all involved parties, made sure everything went smoothly, and even managed to secure us an early closing date. I honestly could not recommend Meg enough, she is a wonderful person an excellent realtor. We absolutely plan to work with Meg again when the time is right to buy that homestead up north.
