She is a winner."

"I highly recommend Charmaine Raby for several reasons. The first is that she knows the market in Auburn, as well as the real estate agents who represent buyers in this area. This proved highly valuable in getting the word out once I had an offer, attracting multiple offers, and sending the price to the maximum the market would bear. Second, her advice around presenting the house ensured it looked its best. Her photographer showed its assets and demonstrated the potential of my property, even in places it didn't necessarily live up currently to that potential. I believe this sparked buyers' imagination and motivated them to bid higher on the property. Third, as we move through the closing process, her advice is again proving valuable in negotiating and continuing to motivate and inspire the buyers through their agent. I have had an excellent experience with Charmaine and learned the value of listing with a great agent, and there is no question Charmaine is one of the best."
Amy Flowers | Auburn
"Charmaine Raby came highly recommended when I decided to downsize and sell my house and looking for a realtor.

"Charmaine was absolutely amazing. She listened to my needs and was helpful beyond imagination."
Natalie Maida | Google Review
"In a rough and tumble marketplace, we found the best real estate agent and company yet! Charmaine Raby stood out head and shoulders from 3 other realtors I spoke with or tried to work with before even arriving in Maine. She listened, she communicated and she didn't send us old listings we had already find on the internet, which is exactly what two other realtors did. Charmaine found us a house in 8 days - on only the 3rd house we looked at. Clearly, we selected Charmaine to represent us and we could not have made a better decision. We don't plan to ever move again, but I will most certainly refer anyone in need of a top real estate agent to the Fontaine clan!"
Christopher Wheelock | Auburn
“I felt incredibly at ease and that I was in good hands. I could ask a question at almost any time, and it seemed I would get an answer immediately. Charmaine had the utmost patience for my questions and for the loan process as a whole, as it took a very long time. I felt as though she advocated for me and left me little to really worry about. Charmaine really cared and wanted me to get into the house I wanted, and as someone buying a house for the first time in this market, that is huge. I would absolutely recommend this team to anybody trying to get a house right now.”

Almost 7 years later, we are still happy with our home and are glad we didn't go forward with a house in some of the other neighborhoods that we originally considered. Her knowledge allowed us to not just buy a house but a place we would be happy to call home for years to come. Although she's a busy lady, she made us feel like we were her only clients throughout the process.

It eased a lot of our first-time buyers' anxiety and concerns. She's the best!" -Lincey Viel | Auburn

She is not only a very nice person, she is also very professional and extremely dedicated to her clients and will do anything necessary (and beyond !) to get it done and get her clients totally satisfied. She is highly recommended." -Dr. Daniel Lacerte & Sylvie Pedneault
"Working with Charmaine from the very beginning, was very easy and she did everything she could to minimize the stress of selling a home. She really did her homework researching the houses in my area and around the same price range to get a very realistic price even in the very volatile market right now. When it came to staging the house for pictures they were very clear on what was important to look good in the listing and even provided all the white towels and staging props. I didn't spend a cent on temporary decorations for my house! For the rest of the process Charmaine always had a plan and could provide me with answers to my questions right away.

What a team!!" -Tammy Clavet-Bureau & Marc Bureau via Facebook
"We had a very positive, professional experience with Charmaine. This was not our first time buying a home, but it might as well have been. We were pretty green. Our situation was made more difficult by the fact that we were in Oregon and doing our house hunt via Skype. She kept in regular touch with us, and with my sister in Maine, who was acting as our eyes and ears locally. She was very good about explaining things as we went along. Everything went smoothly, from beginning to end, and we closed on New Year’s Eve. Thank you for such a smooth, pleasant experience.

We highly recommend." -Jennifer Rykert via Facebook
"Charmaine was our agent when selling our home and did a excellent job of showing our home; doing it with a minimum of traffic in the house. She came in with her crew and took very detailed pictures. The house was put online and shown on a Wednesday and was sold on the next day at $15,000 more then asking price. She also was our agent in buying our present home. The seller was very difficult to deal with and we almost walked away several times ,but she kept the deal together by her persistence in getting things correct and even doing the sellers part by correcting his misguided closing information. She goes above and beyond any real estate agent I have ever worked with. We cannot say enough good about her." -Ray & Janice Gilliam
"HIGHLY RECOMMEND! Charmaine was simply amazing and I'm not sure we could thank her enough for her assistance.

This makes 3 transactions with Charmaine so far! She is always available, has an extreme sense of urgency and kept us informed every step of the way, and made us feel like we were her only clients.....amazing! We couldn't be happier with our new home, so thank you Charmaine, and the entire Fontaine Family!" -Scott Travers | Turner

She is a real gem." -Michael Spellman | Gorham
"I am writing this in order to let you know about our experience with Charmaine Raby, and to say without any reservation that she is the best real estate agent we have ever had. Charmaine worked with us through multiple transactions, and in every case she exceeded our expectations. In the first transaction, we were buyers. We were moving from out of state, and she listened carefully to what we wanted, found an ideal house, and FaceTimed a walk through with us. She patiently worked with us to overcome obstacles related to inspections. Her perseverance in helping us find the right property, and her professionalism, were truly appreciated. We bought the right house, she made sure that the transaction went smoothly, and we were very happy with it. When we were ready to sell that house, we called Charmaine to be our agent. She had excellent suggestions for staging, and the house had multiple offers immediately. She guided us through that transaction, and we again appreciated her strong work ethic and professionalism. Charmaine also was our agent for purchase and sale of a house we anticipated using as a rental property. For the purchase, again the transaction was simple and seamless with her as our trusted agent. When we were anticipating listing that property in the spring of 2020, I let Charmaine know in January and said we would be in touch to sell in the spring. Again, she far exceeded our expectations by finding us a buyer before we even formally listed the property. Again, a seamless transaction through closing with Charmaine. We have bought and sold houses in multiple cities, multiple states over the past 20+ years. We have worked with some excellent real estate agents. Of all of those agents, Charmaine is the absolute best! We give our very highest recommendation for Charmaine Raby." -Jen Barna
"I have been investing in real estate for 2 years now. One thing I have learned is that buying and selling real estate is not easy. With everything else I have to deal with in this business, the hassle of buying and selling my investments takes too much time and expertise I don't have. Charmaine always makes this process much easier for me. When I am either buying or selling I just call Charmaine. She cares about her clients and getting them a fair deal and the right price. It takes a lot of stress off me having someone as reliable as Charmaine to help me with this part of the business. Thank you Charmaine!" -Alan Quatticci
"A couple years ago Charmaine helped us find a home to buy. She went above and beyond taking care of every little detail and issue that arose.

Not a easy home to sell, but she did everything needed and made it happen. Thanks again Charmaine." -Tim & Donna Stoner | Auburn

We searched for almost an entire year before settling on the right one. She was very understanding of what we were looking for in terms of the house, lot size, & location. We never felt rushed & she always took the time to explain each step in detail. We could not have chosen a better agent to assist us in this journey.

Our first time around we had a Realtor that did nothing for us - no advice on how we should prepare the house or anything. We had very few showings & ended up taking the house off the market for the winter season. Then we hired Charmaine & what a difference! She had many suggestions on how to make our lake house more desirable for buyers. She brought over her own props & set up our decks to look beautiful. I almost wanted to keep our home she did such a fantastic job. We have had many showings this time around & are hoping for a sale very soon.

Little did I know that my whole life would change in six months when my work position was eliminated. When it became clear I would need to sell my house & move, I contacted Charmaine. She was kind, understanding, & gracious in her approach to me in this challenging time. She reviewed necessary documents, guided me through the options for listing, & we easily came to an agreed upon price. With enthusiasm she called me the 4th day after listing with an excellent offer. Closing was seamless & she has continued to be available for anything I need since my move & encouraged me to ask about things such as escrow overage.

"I have had a lot of real estate brokers in my life time, but Charmaine Raby is the very best agent that I have ever had. Thank you God, for her expertise & friendly attitude."
-Albert Coffren | Augusta
"I highly recommend Charmaine & the Fontaine Family Real Estate Leaders. Charmaine is excellent at what she does. Personalized service, kindness, continuity, high ethical standards, & excellent knowledge!" -Nicole Boutaugh | Turner
"Prior to securing a buyer's Realtor® for our property search, my wife & I quickly found the perfect property & decided that we would 'go it alone' & not secure an agent ourselves. Charmaine was the seller's Realtor® - she wasn't even our agent, but it was clear from the beginning that we were working with a professional who would help make sure that the purchase would be kept on track in a fair & efficient manner. Even though Charmaine was not our agent, she most certainly looked out for our best interests while also representing her own client. There is a better than likely chance that our transaction would not have got through had it not been for Charmaine steering it through from beginning to end. We can't thank her enough for her efforts!"
"I could not ask for better service. The care & attention from start to finish was and "A+". -Jose Martinez | Phillips
"Charmaine, we appreciate your 'above and beyond' approach. It is obvious why you are so successful in the real estate business. It is refreshing to deal with someone like yourself who goes the extra mile for a client. I will make it known to the owner how dedicated you are to your clients and the profession. Again, thank you for all your support in our real estate transactions. It has been a pleasure to work with you! Best of luck to you in the future" -Bill & Joyce Mercier | Auburn
"Charmaine was informative & attentive with a sense of urgency. She was always available & we enjoyed working with her." -Scott & Katherine Travers | Auburn
"I have purchased & sold over 27 homes in my lifetime & have lived in many states & cities. Charmaine set the bar for customer service & has proven that what I thought was acceptable, was sub-par. Charmain Raby, by far, is the best Realtor I have ever dealt with. She made me feel as though I was her only client. She knows how to present a home, how to market a home, & how to bring to light the values of the home maximizing the sale price. At the end of the day, I sold the home sooner than I would have thought & at a price well above what I had planned for. It was solely due to Charmaine's tenacity & professionalism that made it happen. Did I say I now need a house? I had it in my mind that I wanted an executive condo and we spent a lot of time looking a multiple units & while Charmaine was very willing to show anything I wanted to see, she was also guiding me in a direction that she thought I would be happier with. She even went as far as cold calling, knocking on people's homes that were not for sale just in case they would consider selling & in fact we purchased a home that wasn't even on the market due to her networking abilities. Once again I can't say enough about how easy Charmaine made the buy/sell compared to all difficulties that were placed in her way by the market conditions, economy, & me being as picky as I am. If I am ever in the market again, she will be my Realtor." -John Story | Lewiston
"We have used Charmaine to buy two houses, sell one, & assist in selling one in Florida in the last five years & she will always be our first choice for any future purchases. Our search for the perfect house couldn't have been more demanding, & Charmaine was always up to the challenge. She delivered on all fronts - knowledge, dedication, & professionalism. We couldn't have been happier with the experience of working with her. We would highly recommend Charmaine to anyone thinking of buying or selling a house." -Adam & Lynn Smith | Brunswick
"Charmaine Raby is fantastic. She never lets anything surprise you because she has done all the home work. She has crossed every T and dotted every I. She has excellent connections. We had to do a couple of things to our home & Charmaine knew just who to call. She is honest & will give you her best professional opinion. I highly recommend her over & over for any buying or selling needs! Thanks Charmaine!" -Jillian Chretien | Lewiston
"Charmaine Raby is a well-informed agent that makes you most comfortable during your business transactions. It has been a most pleasurable experience from start to finish." -Romeo Jordan | Buckfield
"Charmaine was timely for appointments & returned phone calls. I was very satisfied with the service." -David Jordan | East Hampton, CT
"Charmaine is a very professional and knowledgeable Realtor. She kept us informed all throughout the process & gave us ideas for marketing our properties. As soon as she knew something, we were informed. Charmaine sold two properties for us. One was under contract within two weeks & the other within six weeks. We had feedback on showings right away. I would highly recommend Charmaine to anyone buying or selling a home." -Don & Joanne Paquette | Sabattus
