"Clayton LaRochelle did a fantastic job! Explained everything, gave options and advice, and (most important) LISTENED to the client. Great communication skills, returned phone calls & texts promptly. We recommend Fontaine highly."

"Clayton Larochelle went above and beyond selling our home. Clay walked us through the entire process. He notified us in a timely manner for showings with the feedback from the showing. I personally called him several times and he promptly answered our questions. The selling price we agreed upon with Clay, that was we received at closing. He treated us with respect through the entire process."

"Having not sold a home in quite some time and selling a house as a personal representative to my fathers estate, Clay and office staff was there every step of the way to answer any question I had, and to meet when I needed a one on one discussion where a phone call would not just do. Not that I am planning on selling another house anytime soon, but if I was Clay and the rest of the Fontaine team would be my first call."

"Choosing a Realtor can be tough and finding the right fit is one of the most important decisions you can make! If you’re looking for a team that will put you first, I highly recommend Clayton Larochelle at Fontaine Family! I’ve worked with him on a few occasions to buy and sell my homes and he’s always been very dedicated, top-notch, caring and friendly! When it comes to knowledge of Real Estate I always put my trust into Clayton! He has always been more than helpful and never hesitates to help! I’m very grateful for all you’ve helped me with. Thank you!"

"The Fontaine's pay attention and take care of all the details associated with selling property. Our particular sale was an estate sale and was problematic on our end. Clayton was able to find a good lawyer to help navigate the legal issues and streamline the process so that we were able to close much sooner than property that was in the estate and listed in Florida. My only complaint is that they do not have a license to sell in 52 states! They take the stress out of the buying and selling process and just take care of things behind the scene so that you don't have to worry, all with a great attitude. It's amazing!"

"As a first-time homebuyer, I had no idea what I was getting into. At the recommendation of our lender, we gave Clayton Larochelle a phone call to begin the process. From the first day, he was fantastic to work with and went out of his way to help us with any questions/concerns we had. There were some bumps In the road along the way, but he helped us navigate them and made the home buying process as easy it could be. Being able to use the moving truck (twice) also eliminated the stress of having to deal with that. Overall a great experience with Fontaine Family and I would highly recommend!"

"The last four months have been a whirlwind! Our old house was under contract within 24 hours, and from that moment on the hunt began. None of this would've been possible without our fantastic realtor Clayton Larochelle. Throughout the entire process he kept us informed, equipped and consistently had the interest of our growing family in mind. he spared us from a house that we fell in love with but in the end ould.ve cost us tens or thousands of dollars for all of the things that were unseen. Through it all Clayton remined the positive voice of reason and he was constantly in communication about the houses he thought would be a good fit for us. This gem of a home would not have been possible without his guidance and expertise."
Kayla Cooper | Recommendation via Facebook
"Clayton was always available when needed and never left us waiting for a reply or additional information. He was very prompt and patient throughout the entire process.

"As someone with 42 years of banking experience, most recently as the retired President & CEO of Auburn Savings Bank, I have worked with many Realtors both good and bad as a buyer, seller, & lender. In the past six months, we have dealt with Clayton Larochelle as both a buyer and seller of real estate. We found Clayton to be very approachable, friendly, knowledgeable, responsive, helpful, and most importantly professional. He even responded to us by e-mail and text messages from his Pleasant Pond area camp on the weekend! In fact the entire staff is well trained and responsive. Some examples are as follows: The lady who came to take pictures was extremely particular about the placement of furniture, lighting and how the room was set up. She arrived on time and I enjoyed helping her stage various rooms. The employee who answered the phone was very polite and professional as well. I also shared a laugh or two with the employee who worked on the closing. Clayton also made an initial appointment for 10:00 on a Saturday, arrived on time and spent over an hour discussing our listing. He never made us feel rushed or pressured and gave us good advice regarding our listing. He was the first Realtor I have dealt with that took the time to review the current real estate market conditions and helped us apply them to our listing. He gets an A+ in our opinion. We would highly recommend Clayton as well as the entire Fontaine Realty team to anyone interested in buying or selling real estate."
