Why Work With Us?
Here's what our satisfied customers are saying about us:
Our experience with Acadia Realty Group has been nothing short of amazing! From the time we decided to purchase a home several years ago to now, as we are in the process of selling, their knowledge of the area, knowledge of the buying/selling process, attention to detail, expert advice, and exceptionally qualified realtors, has provided us a very easy and smooth experience.
We highly recommend Acadia Realty Group for all real estate needs. Amazing group of folks to work with!!
Steve did a great job and was easy to work with. Anytime I contacted him whether by phone call, text, or email, I always received a prompt response. Steve is very knowledgeable regarding the local housing market. I highly recommend him.
We have been vacationing in the Acadia area for years and have always wanted to buy our dream home there. When the opportunity to buy presented itself we started with Zillow! That was the easy part. Real Estate Agent? That was another story. We knew the area, but not any Real Estate Professionals. Using Zillow, I read over several reviews of different Agents. Everyone who reviewed Steve Shelton said the same thing...they loved his manner, local knowledge, his way of "hearing" what your needs were etc. Enough said, let's give him a shout. We did and the rest is, as they say, history. We exchanged several emails about what we were looking for along with some potential homes. This was a crazy time for us as we were trying to buy our forever home in Maine, but at the same time were being relocated to Ohio (renting). We didn't give Steve a whole lot of notice and were having to work with a very tight time schedule. There was no wasted time on homes that someone else might have tried to push. We set a budget and he stayed in it. He knew we wanted waterfront and showed us how we could make that happen. We have our forever home and are happy to call Steve Shelton our Real Estate Professional and now, neighbor.
We have been visiting the Bar Harbor, ME for the last 15 years and had started seriously discussing the possibility of purchasing a second home in the area during the fall of 2016. After finding Steve's name in an Acadia Reality book from the prior year's visit, we decided to contact him about how best to approach our goal. He listened to what we thought were looking for and was very helpful in not pressuring us into speeding the process along - even explaining he had clients in the past who had carried their search through a couple of summer seasons until they found a property that fitted their wishlist and budget. Prior to our annual visit in October, we exchanged emails and phone calls discussing different properties we had each found through Zillow and other MLS outlets which helped bring into focus both what we did and did not want/need. During our visit to Bar Harbor we met with Steve in person and he took an entire Tuesday driving us through what amounted to around 500 square miles of Mid-Coast and Down East Maine! He is a life long resident of this area and had great insight of the towns we visited and provided a local's perspective on, well everything. We were incredibly fortunate to find a property on our initial visit that we really felt was "the one" so Steve carved out time again that week on Thursday to meet us there a second time so our family, who were also visiting, could view the cottage. After traveling home and thinking things over, we decided to place an offer. Steve facilitated the offer and contingencies we decided on and moved the process along very smoothly. He remained in contact with us during every phase of the process and even facilitated with things he really didn't have to; insurance contacts, power company and propane customer transfers, etc. The entire process with Steve's assistance was incredibly pleasant and efficient and we would have absolutely no reservations about recommending him to anyone or using his services again. He is professional, polite and an absolute pleasure to work with.
Working with Acadia Realty Group was the most rewarding real estate transaction we've ever been involved in. From the point our home was listed on the market to nine days later when it sold, we couldn't have asked for better attentiveness anywhere.
