Testimonials

Michael and Marilyn Powers
” This is the second house we bought with Kathryn Townsend and both were smooth and enjoyable experiences with a women who knows her business and has your best interest at heart. I’m extremely hard of hearing, but with Kathy on your team no one is going to try and slip a fast one by you – lol. I might decide to move one more time Kathy, when we do you’ll be the first one I call. ”

The house is sold, we got our price, my brother and I are still friends and if I ever have another house to sell, I’ll call Townsend for sure.

“My experience as a first time home buyer with Townsend Real Estate was terrific. I could not have asked for a better, more competent, or efficient real estate agent than Justin Nichols. I appreciated his patience, flexibility and especially the follow-up from the beginning to beyond the closing. Thanks Townsend!

“Thank you for the excellent work you have done on behalf of our acquisitions effort. You went well beyond typical brokerage services by not only bringing us a range of suitable property, but consistently going the extra mile in doing research and offering valuable insight on each property. All this and some good lunches too – I’ve enjoyed working with you and hope to have the chance to do so again.
Best,

“Thank you very much Jennifer Defilipp for your assistance and expertise in selling my multifamily property in Biddeford! You quickly assessed the situation and approached the sale and showings with a very good plan. It worked! The building had a lot of potential pit falls and you tackled each issue before it was problematic for the sale. I appreciated your confidence when I was nervous, and your willingness to work through my questions with me.
Thank you again! Great job!
Debbie Groff”

Daphne and Ian
“It is such a pleasure to do business with Townsend Real Estate. When we first moved to Portland and began our search, Kathy Townsend really listened to us and our changing needs. She worked tirelessly in finding the right property for us. We have recommended the professionals at Townsend Real Estate to our friends and colleagues and will continue to do so with the confidence in knowing that they will be well taken care of!”

Jennifer and Malcolm Benham
“Malcolm and I have nothing but fantastic things to report about our experience with you. Heck, from our first day of house hunting to the day of our closing was forty-five days! A small miracle in and of itself. We couldn’t have hoped for a smoother process or a nicer agent. You were always so available and willing to answer all of our questions (very comforting to first time home-buyers), and your references for contract workers were great (very helpful for the prospective owners of a “project house”). If we were to do it all over again, we’d choose you as our agent in a heartbeat!”

Linda Stilphen, Owner of Gardens of Atlantis
“I want to express to you how much you have made the process of buying this property and realizing my long dream of creating this Center, easier and more enjoyable. Having worked with other agents, I know how much time you have put into making sure I was informed, comfortable and protected through all the issues and problems that arose during negotiations and beyond. You have gone over and above what I know others would have. You have knowledge and commitment far beyond others in your field. I have enjoyed your optimistic personality and joyous sense of humor. Thank you for all you have done to make my dream a reality.”

From Rachel:
My partner and I were first time homebuyers and very ready to leave the rental market. Kate helped us narrow down what we really did and did not want (ie how much of a “fixer upper” we wanted to take on), with a lot of patience! Her legal experience and her calm and practical demeanor really made it easy to trust her during the whole process. The home-buying process can be so intimidating for a first-timer and it was really great to have someone like Kate in our corner! All in all we had a smooth process and we were able to move out of our apartment and into an awesome place in Portland! Woohoo!

From Jessica:
Kate helped us buy a house in a highly desirable area of town–it was a competitive bid process and Kate made sure we saw the house very fast and then moved quickly to secure our contract and keep all parties moving forwards. She was candid with her advice, kind at moments when we needed encouragement, and ready with information and gentle prompts. A lot of the work that Kate did was “over and above.” For instance, without my prompting, she pulled permits from the city on the garage to make sure it was legit (it was). She also used her extensive legal knowledge to advise me–informally but correctly–about issues of confidentiality, which I was very concerned about. The result is that from start to finish, our house-buying process took about six weeks, no hiccups, and we had a wonderful and easy closing.

From Audrey:
She should be called Kate the Great! Kate helped my husband and I buy our first home. Kate made us feel safe during the process. Kate is knowledgeable and passionate about real estate. She will work very hard for you to find the right home. She is also very personable and easy to work with. Thank you again Kate for finding our lovely home!

Christina M. Gilman
Emilie was incredible to work with from start to finish. We appreciated how efficient and thorough she was in all aspects of listing and selling our home. She made the whole process easy! Would highly recommend her for any of your real estate needs.
