Bruce Holmes and CENTURY 21 Venture Ltd. did a wonderful job helping me sell my mother's house in Waterville Maine. The property was listed for less than 3 days when we received an offer and was under contract within 5 days of listing it. Bruce was very helpful and patient throughout the process. 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.
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.

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.

Having Janelle LeBreton as our broker took some of the stress and worry out of our experience. She was always calm and collected. She had answers for our questions or got answers quickly when she didn't know. She kept in touch and kept things moving along.
Janelle was readily available anytime we had questions or needed help. If she didn't know the answer, she found it somehow and without wasting any time.
Janelle was a big help throughout this whole process. We couldn't have done it so smoothly without her help.
