Melissa Marcello & Eric Sturm

When my husband got hired at the Jackson Laboratory, we were excited about moving to Maine, but also nervous about finding a house we loved in a community with good schools and amenities while in the midst of the pandemic.

We feel so fortunate to have found Midge, and have her in our corner. As a native Mainer, Midge really knows the area, is experienced, and will tell things like they are. She advised us well on many fronts (e.g., location, price, housing stock, schools, etc.) while helping to manage the many stressors that come with home buying.

Simply put, Midge makes the home buying process easier for those of us ‘from away’—we highly recommend working with her. And we love our new home on Newbury Neck in Surry!

Margaret Smith represented us in the summer of 2020 as our listing agent in the sale of our house in Deer Isle, Maine. Margaret's knowledge of every aspect of selling a property and how she guided us through some unusual issues which occurred along the way could only have been handled by an extremely experienced and thorough broker. Margaret kept us completely informed all through the process beginning with the listing contract to the conclusion of the sale. I spent 12 years as a Realtor in the Boston suburbs. Margaret is one one the finest and most ethical Realtors I have worked with.
