Why did these Extraordinary Agents choose Fontaine Family Team?
"Fontaine was my first real estate company. I left in 2020, but rejoined Fontaine in 2021 because I believe they put their clients first. The company is one-of-a-kind and you truly feel like you are an extension of a family. The amount of support I receive from the team is amazing. Knowing that there is always someone available to answer my questions has allowed my confidence to grow. I know my clients best interests are always protected not only by me, but also by the support of our team who are licensed and dedicated and always go out of their way to help, get answers and find solutions. Fontaine cares its agents and its clients. They also care about the community with its yearly contributions to Cans for a Cure and Make-A-Wish Maine. I would describe the leadership as team leadership, which is so much better than one person running the show. After leaving, I realized that Fontaine had everything that I had dreamed of in a real estate company. I really feel that everyone here wants me to succeed as much as I do and that I’m part of something important. I feel very lucky to hang my license with Fontaine Family Team!"
"I joined the Fontaine Team because Brenda made me feel like family the very first time we met. I like being part of the Fontaine Team because everyone is willing to help you out no matter what. The leadership is beyond excellent. The culture is one that cares. They make both the agents and the clients feel like part of the family and I like that there’s always something new to learn from the other agents at the training sessions."
"I joined Fontaine Team because of their excellent reputation. It felt like family the first time meeting Brenda & Crystal Fontaine-Bergeron. What I like about being part of the Fontaine Team is that there’s always someone to help or answer questions. I never feel like agents are competing against each other. It feels like a team here. The Fontaine Team culture absolutely cares they are always there to help, listen and are always customer service oriented. From my past experience the training at Fontaine is better. I like the team huddles, and the experiences that are shared by others."
"I joined the Fontaine Family Team because it seemed like the brokerage that had a lot of depth in leadership and I needed help to ramp up fast. I would describe the leadership as AMAZING! The roles are spelled out very clearly so I always know where to turn for help. Brenda has been fully supportive of my "out of the box" marketing ideas. I do feel the Fontaine Family Team culture cares, because they are continually asking how they are doing so they can improve. I have never had that experience in the past. Fontaine Family Team rates a "10" for having a positive workplace environment."
“Being a part of the Fontaine Team has strengthened my position as a realtor in this busy market. Having closed 60 transactions this year- I needed the help of the “team approach”. Many realtors are “going it alone”, but by doing that, they don’t have time for the superior customer service that I strive to provide all my clients before, during, and after the sale. The 5 years I have been with Fontaine Team have allowed me to see rapid growth in my business, while having a fun and positive work environment alongside truly caring and helpful people. As an independent contractor, Fontaine Team is a great place to work and grow my business to the next level."
I joined Fontaine Team because I wanted to work with a Maine-owned agency. I also wanted to be with an agency with agents a lot more knowledgeable than me. I love Brenda's kind nature and commitment to her company. What I like about being part of the team is someone is always willing to help or give guidance. The leadership is excellent! It's obvious how much Fontaine Team's culture cares with all the repeat clients we have and also how everyone pulls together to support each other whether someone has an achievement or tragedy.
I joined Fontaine Team for many reasons including the team concept, overall reputation and awesome website! Fontaine Team is small enough to feel the synergy, but big enough to have an impact on the area/community. The staff are always willing to help and are always there to answer any questions. I love the small training team meetings and credit classes offered in-house. I love hearing others share their stories and struggles during the meetings, because I believe it is the best way to learn.
“I wanted to work for a company that was proactive and had an excellent reputation! I like the feeling of being a family team. We are always learning and improving. Fontaine goes far and beyond for all the people they connect with. Our clients constantly talk very highly about our services. You come into the office to a full staff every day and everyone is always helpful. I have grown far and beyond what I would have ever expected. I like all the training and encouragement.”
“I joined the team to have a more balanced life. I enjoy “the family” we have at work. I love how we help each other overcome objections and deal with present day issues. I love the great support and love how the leadership is always willing to try new ideas.”
“It is an uplifting and very supportive atmosphere. I feel like I am home here. I really enjoy the team meetings on Tuesdays. Brenda is very supportive and always willing to teach and learn herself. All the agents care about our happiness and success. Brenda believes in positivity and it shines through our office. It has given me opportunity to work with and beside the best in real estate. Hearing stories of other agent’s encounters have taught me valuable lessons in the field. I love the training, going around the table, recognition and just being together as a team.”
“I joined Fontaine team to increase my business by becoming part of a team. I like the excellent support from the staff and the positive reputation of the team. The leadership is caring, supportive, and understanding. This office is one of the best I have seen as far as a positive environment. I enjoyed having other brokers in our office doing classes on their methods of doing things. Being part of this team has helped me improve my business by more than double!”
VALUE OF FAMILY
“I joined this team because I wanted to be part of a team that was successful and stressed the importance and value of family. I like being part of a team that is easy to communicate with and has a strong support system. The leadership is warm, supportive, knowledgeable, and encourages you to demand nothing less than your best from yourself. The caring culture here is evident every time you step through the door. I always look forward to coming to the office and I am proud to say I am part of this team. Everyone here works hard and is a team in every sense of the word.”
“I joined the Fontaine Team because I needed a career change and always saw how successful Brenda had been over the years. I could not be as successful as I am without the support from the licensed staff. Leadership is top notch. Not to many businesses have owners that consistently show up to work every day looking for ways to improve the business and work at finding ways to better serve the client. It has always been about the customers and clients first. They are the ones that drive the business and without them we wouldn’t be where we are today. The owners understand this philosophy and in turn also understand the same holds true about their agents. They go above and beyond to keep their agents happy. The impact for me and my family has been unbelievable. I never thought I would be where I am today & have the opportunity to enjoy the vacations and time off I need. I went from working a $9 /hour job to making a six figure income all while taking more time off and working less. I know it wouldn’t be possible if the owners hadn’t taken the time to invest in me...they armed me with the tools I needed to be successful and for that I am forever grateful.”
“It’s a great environment. Everyone is always smiling and happy to help each other out. It’s genuine. I can actually see myself here for the rest of my life.”
“I chose the Fontaine Team because of Brenda Fontaine and her reputation. I like the team structure with the help and support from both staff and agents. The leadership is excellent and encouraging, and there is a strong leadership presence. I love the team meetings."
“I joined the Fontaine Team for support, mentoring, availability, and accessibility to senior agents for coaching. I like the people, the team support, and the sharing of ideas to make us better agents. The leadership is skilled and very present. There is sincere, genuine interest in the growth and success of agents, both personally and professionally."
“I joined Fontaine because of their great reputation, friendly people, and outstanding training & support. The supportive team believes in helping each other rather than setting up to fail. Quick response to review and approving documents, administration that takes care of pictures, paperwork, and a large variety of tasks helps me focus on creating and maintaining relationships with my clients. There is an excellent pool of resources who share their contacts as well as expertise.”
