"Charmaine was very personal & friendly.  It felt like we had a good friend helping us buy our first home.  She was professional, friendly, responsive, knowledgeable, great at negotiating, & communication was excellent.  The entire experience was great!"
Kim & David Pepin - Manchester

"Charmaine went above & beyond in helping us purchase the right home for us.  She was extremely patient with us as first time home buyers.  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.  I am glad we had an agent that had our best interests in mind when negotiating, saving us thousands & ensuring we didn't overlook anything during the inspection process.  I would definitely recommend her services.  She knows what she is doing & she is great to work with!  Thanks for everything Charmaine!"

"Charmaine's reputation has served her well & she has more that exceeded my expectations throughout the entire process of selling my first home.  I ended up moving cross country & each step of the way she was checking to see how things were going and really helping to coordinate so many details.  
While choosing to sell can be difficult, Charmaine was available for questions, meeting in person, & walking through the required steps that made it seem much more manageable.  Her knowledge base of the housing market & what each buyer & seller would want lent to amazing customer service with a sincere heart, for any party!  She is such a hard worker with an attention to detail that is impressive.  If I was looking in the housing market, I would highly recommend meeting with her."
Naomi Opitz - Lewiston

"Charmaine was very knowledgeable, consciences, & had great integrity.  I felt I was in very good hands."
Judith Hunnewell - Bowdoin

"We are in the process of selling our lake house & it has been a difficult 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.  I can't say enough about how dedicated Charmaine has been to helping us sell our home.  We will never use anyone else again!"
Barrilyn Sirr - Monmouth

"Charmaine was very truthful & had answers to our questions in a short time.  Loved the back-up employees that help the agents."
Mr. & Mrs. Geo Gary Gamrat - Lisbon Falls

"Charmaine is a great person & very helpful.  She will guide you every step of the way."
 Dawn Pendergast - Lewiston

"My wife and I recently sold our first house & immediately identified that we were surrounded by numerous Realtor® options.  Through a recommendation of a friend, we were connected with Charmaine Raby of Fontaine Realty whom we immediately connected with.  Charmaine routinely exhibited her trustworthy & honest character which provided comfort during such a significant event.  Charmaine provided concise recommendations & quality comparable properties to attract buyers through aesthetics & price; this resulted in an interested buyer two days after showing became open to the public & this prospective buyer would successfully purchase the house. 

Charmaine's knowledge of current & anticipated market trends were always proven accurate.  Due to her character, knowledge, experience, and professionalism, I would recommend Charmaine Raby to anyone looking to buy or sell a home."
 Jeffrey & Kristine Lacroix - Auburn

"George and I want to say thank you for being our agent to sell our property.  What a blessing you have been to us through it all.  You are so sincere, very honest, & right up front about how it should be handled in selling this land in a proper fashion.  God couldn't have blessed any more when you became our agent."
 George & Dorothy Varney - Turner

"I don't know how to thank Charmaine for her patience, skills, organizational capabilities, & kindness.  I owe her a lot more than to somebody who sold a house.  Thank you for your friendship."
 Benoit Blondeau - Auburn

"Charmaine shows a level of caring & dedication to each client regardless of home price.  We were made to feel important.  All of our considerations/wants were met. They go the extra step!"
 Kimberly & Anthony Travaglini - Lewiston

"I wish to express my most sincere recommendation for Charmaine Raby.  We have known each other for many years both personally & professionally. She has assisted me in selling 2 homes, as well as purchasing a new home.  She is extremely knowledgeable, persistent, & a pleasure to work with, both as a buyer & seller.  I would recommend Charmaine, without reservation, in any of your home needs."
 Damon Jordan - Windham

"Charmaine is dedicated.  She knows all the ins & outs and will go the extra mile.  She is fantastic.  You won't have to worry about a thing.  We can't say enough about her."
 Jillian & Mark Chretien - Turner

"I first met Charmaine approximately one year ago when I was considering a move to a condo & she had one listed.  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 appreciate the respect & professionalism Charmaine displays."
 Cindie Rice - Lewiston

"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

 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

"Charmaine will get the job done working side-by-side with the owner/seller/buyer to make it happen.  I wouldn't think of using any other."
