Janelle was more than excellent. She went above and beyond and answered all of our questions. She was very helpful with everything.
I tried communicating with several other brokers with no success. They either were slow to respond or didn't understand what I was looking for.
Bruce was immediately approachable and understood what I was looking for.
A+ for all the above. I would grade higher for communication. Bruce kept me updated on everything despite my limitations on communication... poor phone reception and intermittent email access.
Absolutely fantastic and got our dream home easier than we thought imaginable
Thank you so much for ur time. Fighting for us to get the house we really wanted. Couldn't have done without ken bell. He knows house to help get ur dreams to be reality. So happy with everything and new house is amazing thanks to ken bell.
At first I contacted Brookewood realty of Augusta, but they didn't really seem interested until I was pre-approved and they wanted me to work with a company I had only heard rotten things about. So I asked around and found 'the Mortgage Network' and skip trafton, he seemed nice and knowledgeable and after I got pre-approved for a loan he gave me a few names of people he works with often in realty and I chose to contact Pete, whom we/my wife and I were very comfortable with.
Pete was always on top of helping us find a home we love and Staying on top of the issues and always attentive right up to the closing day!
Pete was exactly what we were looking for even before we really knew 'what' we were looking for in a real estate agent. He was Honest and straight forward about the type of house we should be looking for and took the time out of a Saturday to show us what we should and shouldn't be looking for in a home. I would recommend Pete to anyone looking, whether it be first time or anytime for a new home. We both were very happy we chose pete!
Thank you so much Kathy for all your help, for your positive attitude and endless patience. We appreciate you!
Rhonda helped my family get into our dream home. She made what could have been a very stressful situation go as smooth as possible. Wonderful lady and extremely skilled realtor. We will surely use her services again for our future needs.
Janelle Lebreton did great with finding my husband and I the perfect house! She was very resourceful and helpful during this process. I would recommend her to anyone!
Bruce was great throughout the process and was a strong advocate making sure there were no surprises. He also was very patient with us as we looked for the perfect property.
She performed above and beyond our expectations. I will highly recommend her.

Ken did fine job with helping buying this house.
Pete Laney always had my best interest in mind. He was the most knowledgeable realtor I have ever worked with. If I was to sell my home or purchase another, I would not hesitate to contact Mr. Laney! I am extremely pleased with his service and would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell!
Pete kept me informed of all of the proceedings and his attention to detail was astounding....
Mr. Laney is an extremely knowledgeable professional!
Kathy is an excellent realtor and went above and beyond to assist us with the sale of our home. We live out of state and were not able to be in Maine during the sale of our home but Kathy ensured everything went smoothly and made a difficult situation a lot easier. She was always available to answer our questions and assisted with closing in our absence. I would highly recommend Kathy Lewis as a realtor.
I would like to say Janelle Lebreton was excellent she was there before and after sale. I could get ahold of her at anytime. When ever i needed to get something explained because i was panicking or something more details she would call me right back. I loved her sense of humor that made everyone feel so comfortable. I would definitely recommend her to family and friends.
Bruce Holmes and CENTURY 21 Venture Ltd. did a wonderful job helping me sell my mother's house in Waterville Maine.

I would highly recommend him and CENTURY 21 Venture Ltd.

Janelle did a great job. She went above and beyond in helping us locate the well on the property. I definitely would recommend her to others as she works very hard to sell your house.
