"Just a note to let you know how appreciative I am to have given you a call to help sell Jim’s home. You have gone the extra miles to make this selling possible. We have jumped many hurdles to complete the task. I am beyond grateful for you taking the time to go to have Jim sign the needed paperwork for selling his home. Jim was appreciative of meeting you. I have reached out to you many times by phone and you immediately answered my questions or concerns. If you had no answers, you reach out to get the info and relayed the info back to me. Bill, you put me ease when you took it upon yourself to reach out and shared the problem about the deed situation. I would highly recommend you to family and friends if they need a realtor. Meeting you and working with you was a pleasure. Thanks a million."
"It is a hard market for house hunting right now and we did not know where to start. Our agent, Bill, is so knowledgeable and patient with us as we embarked on this journey. He provided us the best guidance, but always left the ultimate decision to us. What I am most appreciative of is that he would not let us settle. He made sure that we were hitting the boxes on our "must have's" and "would be nice" lists. He also added some humor to the mix. Through the whole process, everyone in the agency was communicative, informative and understanding of our needs and timing. This is the second time that we have worked with Fontaine and I would come back. Thank you everyone!"

"Wonderful experience! I called the office randomly and was easily in contact with Bill Bergeron. Bill was very knowledgeable about local lenders, assisting me on multiple choices to find financing. He continued to support with purchasing land, and connect me to local builders. He patiently waited till I was comfortable selling my current house. During the selling process Bill was quick to answer any questions I had. And looked out for my best interest on the multiple offers I received on my house. We ended up being under contract in 3-days. He was patient and kind. I can't recommend this office enough! I give his name to all my friends and family for their real estate needs."

Bill's mother-in-law Brenda was the one who helped us buy 25 years ago! We hoped she was still working, so we called. We will say that the Fontaine Family Team carries on a great family tradition, a tradition of helping customers to find and to sell houses to their (customers) great satisfaction."

When we saw a house that we were interested in and he wasn't available to show it he made sure someone could meet us so we could see it before others did and made bids. We made our offer in time and got it! Our previous realtor felt a bit pushy. I felt no pressure from Bill to bid on a house until we were certain it would work for us. It really felt like he was just as excited about finding the perfect house as we were. Such a great experience!"
Tanya Sadler | Auburn

Tammy Levasseur | Lewiston
"I looked at many houses before buying and Billy never got annoyed or lost interest. He definitely earned his money with me. He helped me with advice on financing, inspections, appraisals; things I had no knowledge of. Houses I insisted on seeing, he told me I wouldn’t like, that it was a waste of my time…he was right, I didn’t like them. Very knowledgeable on every aspect of the home buying process and once you tell him what you want, he will narrow it down for you. He’s the professional, trust him!"
Christopher Fournier | Lewiston
"Looking at houses Bill would point out concerns about the house. Such things that would need to be replaced soon rather than looking over the flaws and just trying to make a sale. Made him more trustworthy and honest. Personable and really looked out for me rather than just trying to make a sale."
Kristopher Bouchard | Auburn

I feel comfortable recommending his services to anyone I know."
