"Working with Dave Foster was a treat. He was always available to answer any questions we had and made us feel comfortable from the word go. His strategy resulted in a sale that was what we were hoping for. What more can you ask for? My wife and I highly recommend working with Dave and the Fontaine team!"

"Just purchased a house!!! Was everything I was looking for. David Foster was the agent I worked with and Chris Baine both were highly knowledgeable, patient with my many questions and took the time to explain what I don’t understand! Highly highly would recommend! I even got a bird house. Woot! If I choose to go through this process again, I would most certainly go through them. Thank you Gentlemen for all you have done for me."

"Helping our aging mom sell her home was a difficult process. Dave Foster’s approach to marketing the home by celebrating its story made her feel comfortable and helped the process tremendously. Dave is highly knowledgeable, an active listener, and communicates often. This gave us continued confidence that each step of the way we were partners in the real estate transaction. Dave Foster uses video first marketing, an approach that uses engaging and dynamic footage to tell the story of your home, giving potential buyers a more accurate and sincere picture of what the home has to offer. In a short time, he was able to capture the essence of our family home and communicate it effectively to potential buyers. Dave’s unique approach to selling my mom’s home resulted in a highly positive experience for her and our family."

"Our realtor David Foster from Fontaine family was so easy to work with when we were met with obstacles when selling our house. He knew exactly what to do and was always one step ahead of us. He did a great job with his video work presenting the house and walking you through it like you were there! He made himself available 24/7 and was always ready to answer questions. If we were to ever sell our house again he would be the first guy to call. We were very pleased with Dave’s speedy work!"

"David Foster named my home "Minuet" and made a priceless video to boot. I felt that I was David's most important client the whole time. Even Victor could not stand in his way (see photo-lol). Victor went to stay at David's house until the showings were done, which was very quickly. No matter how complex, David walked me through all the documents and steps to selling my home. Kudos to David!"

"Hiring David Foster as my Buyer Agent at Fontaine Team was the smartest move I could have made. Dave is responsive, caring, and passionate about what he does. He took the time to explain the process, and turned what could have been a painful experience into a learning opportunity. If you're looking to buy (or sell) in the Portland, Maine area, give Dave a call."

"My wife & I met David Foster—Maine Realtor in the summer of 2021. I called Fontaine R/E for a cost free appraisal of our home... it took about 30 minutes for David to call us & set up a date & time to meet. David was very professional & knowledgeable about the R/E market in our area. David explained to us how he markets his R/E listings with Interior videos & Drone videoing of the outside. David owns his own Drone videoing Co. called Aloftme Media Services. When you sign a contract with David Foster @ Fontaine Realty to list your home, you can rest assured you are getting a hard working, knowledgeable, honest Real Estate agent. David will do everything he can to get the most $$ Dollars $$ for your home. My wife & I can’t say enough about his Marketing skills along with his drone & video experience @ Aloftme Media Services."

"We recently sold a small piece of land. Even though it was not going to be a big sale for Dave, he took the time to do a lot of upfront work for us, before we were even under contract, as we were deciding if we even wanted to put it on the market. He is very personable and always welcomed our many questions. Thanks again Dave!"
Diane Jaros | Google Review
"We met with David a year prior to putting our house on the market to conduct a walk through and provide feedback on how to prepare for listing. He followed up without being pushy and recommend we move forward while the market was hot. That was good advice. We had over 50 scheduled showings and sold in one day and over asking price. David's marketing portfolio and the great service from Fontaine Real Estate made the entire process go smoothly. We were so glad we had David and team working in our best interest. With all the real estate brokers and companies out there, we recommend you speak to David Foster."

"Dave helped us purchase a home during the pandemic while we were living out of state. My wife and I are exceptionally critical and difficult clients (or so we've been told), but Dave took it all in stride - he was exceptionally flexible, responsive, patient and kind, and receptive to all of our many questions and concerns. In a market saturated with realtors, Dave stands head and shoulders above the competition as a true professional dedicated to his craft. He's knowledgeable, thoughtful, and eager to add value to the the process. We would strongly recommend engaging Dave for your next real estate transaction."

We wanted to thank you for the impeccable service and ease with which you handled the selling of our house from the moment we signed with you. It wasn’t an easy task either, especially since we moved out of state and you assumed the burden of responsibility until it was sold. We don’t know what we would have done without you Dave, and your people who took care of details from all angles with cleaning/prepping the home, snow removal, and all the boat drama. That didn’t include managing the all those offers and the actual sale too. We wish we could use you to handle our next home out here in the Midwest! I don’t think we will find anyone quite like you Dave and your staff. We are a modest and reserved couple that doesn’t have social media sites (we never have), which is why we don’t put reviews online with our information, but we didn’t want you to think we were dissatisfied in any way with our interactions or service from you. This is why we are emailing you so you would know how happy and satisfied we were with the whole process from start to finish. We wish you much happiness and success in all you do, and keep doing it with such passion and professionalism. It was the BEST home experience we have ever had! Thank you for everything."

"Having known David Foster in other areas of his professional life, it was a "no-brainer" to turn to him when my husband and I wanted to test the local real estate waters. Dave 'exceeded expectations' especially when my husband and I agreed we were premature on making a decision to sell. Dave was gracious and supported us through the WHOLE process, and confirmed beyond a doubt that his primary goal is to build and sustain long-term relationships. Dave worked with an unsurpassed energy and excitement about his role as agent and demonstrated creativity not often seen locally. We just loved his team's approach to marketing strategies [it gave us an excuse to have a good-friends' gathering to show off how our beautiful Maine spot on the Saco River can be enjoyed]. Should the time come when we find we are truly ready to sell David Foster will be our go-to. Had we actually been willing to sell, I'm sure we would have clicked on the 'good value' button as well."

"Dave is a true professional. He is diligent and works hard for his clients, representing them in all aspects of the buying and selling process. He goes the extra mile in everything he does. Dave is very active in the community, past president of the Auburn-Lewiston Rotary Club, involved in Guiding Eyes for the Blind as a puppy raiser and puppy sitter for pups in the GE program. He plays guitar and piano and sings in a talented group called the Jody Boys. He's a talented techie and makes informative business videos weekly on FaceBook.

"Excellent experience. We worked with David Foster in the sale of our home. Initially, we were impressed with his passion, and enthusiasm in working with us. He has a friendly demeanor, which put us at ease at a stressful time. We were also extremely impressed with his creativity and the marketing tools he planned for the sale of our home. He was very helpful to us in navigating technology, managing showings, and always was accessible. Working with Dave was a five star experience all around."

"Dave provided excellent communication throughout the process! The attentiveness, communication, and knowledge of the market in the area makes him different. Dave is the best!"
Adam Hewins | Auburn
"Dave was very quick and responsive with all texts and transactions. Being new in the business he went the extra mile to make sure he was well informed for any questions we had and inspired our confidence in him. Dave treated us like the only customer he had and that was certainly not the case. He had a huge workload but maintained a calmness that made our experience less stressful."
Jeff & Joanne Preble | Turner
"Dave was great! He gave suggestions of minor things I could do prior to listing the house. Anytime I had a question, he was quick to pick up the phone or return my call. I could tell this wasn't just a job for Dave. He was building a relationship. Once the house was ready, it was listed and the same day there were showings. Within 24 hours, there was an offer. The photos and video of the house were beautiful. Based on my experience and the friend who referred me to Dave, if I was selling or buying another house, I would call Dave."

"Dave Foster was our Real Estate agent when we bought our lake house. This was our first vacation home and Dave, along with the great Fontaine team, guided us through the process. Top notch service. Quick story about Dave. The lake house has a septic system. We had it inspected, but the results were inconclusive because the water was turned off due to it being the winter. Dave got permission from the sellers to enter the home. He drove up and poured water down the toilets and the drains and we got comfortable the septic was ok. Again, very good customer service and very knowledgeable about the industry. I would choose Dave again when I buy another property. And you should too!"
Joe Ponte | Facebook Review
"David Foster went above and beyond what was required of him to make sure we were completely satisfied with this experience. He was available for showings and consultations on weekends, which was extremely helpful for my crazy work schedule (I am a nurse). He traveled miles and miles in the snow and torrential rain to make sure we could view homes, including standing in the pouring rain and showing us the property which is now our home! He answered every question I had without hesitancy and he made certain to keep me updated regarding everything that was going on. He even paired us with a mortgage broker, when the one we were working with, was impossible to reach. We truly wouldn't have been able to get out new home without him! He was absolutely amazing and he made this process far less scary for me, as a first (and only) time home buyer. When my daughter is ready to purchase her home, I am sending her to The Fontaine Family...and David Foster!"
