"In 3 days we had 5 offers OVER asking price. I love their marketing strategies. We took Maria's advice on our approach to selling and even though we were hesitant, she was correct with her instinct. Thank you for making this process smooth and painless. Much appreciated."

"Service was very informative in all aspects. Maria was extremely knowledgeable and made sure we were fully informed on why, when and what was needed."
Joanne Crepeau | Scarborough
"Selling our home was a very difficult decision. Maria was very thorough, patient and respectful. She was very responsive to our questions and concerns. She provided great resources to help make the entire process as stress free as possible. This is the second time we use Maria for our real estate needs and we won’t hesitate to use her again. Brenda and her girls helped my family years ago with a very personal and difficult real estate transaction. The way they handled everything spoke volumes about their business principles and compassion for their clients. We have never forgotten this. We feel this is part of what makes their agents so good. It is passed on. They take the stress out of the process. We know we can trust them to help us. We know we were in good hands. Thank you Maria!"

"Maria was outstanding. Her availability and responsiveness were second to none. Her knowledge of the area and areas of homes (e.g. well, septic) we were unfamiliar with made us more informed buyers. We felt a high degree of trust in Maria that facilitated a successful offer on our first try. Pretty remarkable in this COVID real estate market. Her advocacy for us during the offer process ensured we were successful purchasing the home we were looking for. We are very grateful."

"I worked with Maria Morrissette last June/July and we found our dream home! In a fast paced market, Maria was there every step of the way and we closed seamlessly. I recommend Fontaine!"

"My husband and I worked with Maria M out of your Scarborough location and it was the best experience ever. We would recommend her or the Fontaine Family to anyone looking to buy or sell a home."
Lloyd Alexander | Google Review
"Maria went above & beyond in her service of our needs. Her commission check amount seen at the closing showed us her dedication to us as her clients because in our opinion she was extremely underpaid for the work she did."

"Positive attitude, pro active agent Maria to move this project forward. Displays empathy when issues arise. Maria's team supporting this sale was splendid! I had dealings with other realtors in the past that did not impress me with their attitude. I am so pleased with the Fontaine family. I am standing and applauding! Bravo Bravo Bravo!!! If you want to sell your home this is the team you want on your side!"
