Client Reviews

 

You couldn’t do better than Carol Kline as your realtor. We met her at an open house and immediately were impressed and comfortable hiring her. She is attentive, responsive, and thoroughly professional. Her attention to detail saved us $1000! I was impressed with how she handled all of the  communications involved with our purchase and her pleasant, helpful demeanor. We’d hire Carol again in a minute. You should too.

I work 12 hour overnight shifts which restricted my availability windows during the work week to view houses tremendously but Carol couldn’t have possibly been any better working with me to view homes that peaked my interest. Also, as a first time homebuyer I needed assistance in the closing  process and she was there every step of the way to help me with any questions I had. I’d recommend her to anyone!

Ryan T

We don't have enough words to describe our gratitude to Carol for her expertise and patience with us throughout our home-buying process! As we had never lived in the area before and were using Zillow online listings for reference, we depended on Carol not only for house recommendations but also  for neighborhood evaluations. Carol came to us highly recommended, and we can only add our praise to that as well.

Fred and Julie Patterson

We bought a home that Carol listed in 2019. Carol is very ethical and professional. She responded promptly to all inquiries. I would highly recommend her.

 

Kim and Lenny
Carol helped us buy a house when we moved from PA to Maine. She made the most of our first trip to show us several houses and we ended up with the first one she showed us. She took time to understand our needs and wants. She was terrific to deal with during the entire process. She gave us several  referrals for contractors, plumbers, etc. She is very well respected by all of them and you just had to mention her name and you got quick responses and great service from those folks. We would highly recommend her and her office.
Susie and Bob R
Carol was excellent. She represented us as the buyers in a sale that had multiple issues. We could not have done it without her. She helped resolve some difficult issues. We were 1500 miles away and she organized inspections, contractors and all the legal stuff. She even obtained estimates for  repairs. Buying a new home can be complicated and stressful. Hiring a realtor that knows the ropes and has good experience solving issues will help with your peace of mind and may make the difference between a successful sale and a flop. Worse, you could end up buying something with problems that Carol could have resolved. We highly recommend that you hire Carol to represent you! 
Vic and Nancy

Carol was absolutely amazing! From the moment we met her we were very impressed. My wife and I were first time home buyers and Carol walked us through every step of the process. She was always available to answer any questions we had via phone or email promptly. She worked around our crazy work  schedules and always had our best interest in mind. She understood our budget and didn’t try to steer us into something out of our price range. I literally could go on forever! If you are looking for a realtor who truley cares about their clients on a personal level then that’s exactly what you’re going to get with Carol Kline. We will never use another realtor as long as she is in business!

Jason W

We can’t say enough good things about Carol. She went above and beyond every step of the way. As we were purchasing a fixer upper, it wasn’t the easiest transaction between the inspections, mortgage lender issues, negotiations back and forth with the seller, needing to get estimates, etc. Carol was  always responsive. She responded to every email and phone call and bump in the road quickly and professionally . Her own personal experience in purchasing and renovating homes was beneficial beyond measure. She was able to provide us with recommendations for professionals who could assist us with some of the work we needed to have done. Above all though, Carol was professional and supportive throughout. She is a genuinely kind person and her love for her job is apparent. Having worked with other agents before (which were not the most positive experiences), we are so happy we found Carol and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a home in Southern Maine.

Scott and Karen  E

Carol went above and beyond for us. We could not have asked for a more qualified agent. I would highly recommend this agent to anyone wanting to buy or sell a house or property.

Tom S

Carol came prepared to our first meeting. She had a fair market analysis done which matched our own figures. She suggested a few things to spruce up the house, had professional photos taken and the home was under contract within days. She was very pleasant to work with. We would highly recommend  her as your next realtor.

Mldenka M

Carol was very friendly and pleasant to work with. I was coming from another state and she was able to arrange viewing a number of properties in close succession. Her explanations of the paperwork and process were clear. The entire home purchase went very smoothly.

Linda P

Carol recently helped us sell our house and purchase another one, wouldn’t have wanted anyone else on our side! Very knowledgable and helpful through the decision process. Highly recommended!!

Abbie and Garrett F

“Carol has an old fashion work ethic. This means she keeps her word, is dependable, a hard worker for her clients, and is above reproach. Carol will find you a buyer or a home without question. You can trust her fully; knowing she has your best interest in mind. She loves her job and it shows with every aspect of the process a buyer or seller must go through in this present day real estate business.”

Peter L

Carol is AMAZING! Carol was my agent when I purchased my home 5 years ago and she was the person that I thought of first when it was time to sell. After 5 years she still knew exactly who I was and where my house was. Carol brought in a stager and photographer to help market our home. It went on  the market Monday afternoon, had 6 showings on Tuesday and had 2 offers by Wednesday morning. We were thrilled when the first offer was over list price! Carol was with us every step of the way. Our buyer happened to be very pushy (to say the least) and Carol gave great advice on how to handle all that was being thrown our way. I can’t imagine using another agent after working with Carol. She certainly goes above and beyond. She makes you feel like you are her only client and immediately you feel comfortable with her. I certainly give her the highest recommendation possible. If you pick Carol, you won’t be disappointed! 

Ashley C

I highly recommend Carol if you are selling your home. Carol helped me sell my Dad’s almost 200 year old house in a very short amount of time. She kept me well informed at every change as it came along, even when she was out of the country! She acted quickly on holding an Open House the first  weekend it was listed and we had an offer right away. I fully trusted her advice and suggestions along the way. If you want an honest, experienced realtor, Carol is the one to use in the Southern Maine area. I would definitely ask her to sell again when needed.

Anne A

Carol was fantastic! She was very helpful in making suggestions on remodeling projects, bringing in a professional photographer, and getting the home staged for showing. The whole experience was great. Her years of experience paid off in getting our house under contract in less than 60 days for a  fair price

Robert B

Carol helped us purchase a second home in Harrison. She was extremely helpful, always responsive, and just a genuinely nice and honest person. I highly recommend her to anyone looking in the area!

Dave L

Carol was a pleasure to work with. She was always very professional, very responsive, & very knowledgeable. Our house sold in 4 days for over the asking price.

Bill and Martha B

If you want a top-notch realtor, call Carol Kline. She goes the extra mile to sell your home, takes professional pictures that make it shine and always has a contagious laugh that will brighten anyone’s day. Very upbeat and positive, willing to show homes in an ice storm or any other type of weather! Nothing stops Carol Kline.

Jerry and Susie B

Finding Carol Kline was a blessing! We had been looking for a home with another broker for about one year with terrible results. So, when we finally began working with Carol, it was a breath of fresh air to see how a professional, knowledgeable broker works! She helped us find a wonderful home in less than a month and we couldn’t be happier. We highly recommend Carol Kline. And, she even bakes cookies! She’s fantastic!

Wendy and Tommy H

Carol Kline sold a house for us 5 years ago. She was exceptional then and made us feel so comfortable with the whole selling aspect, we contacted her 21/2 months ago to help us find a home. Carol spoke with us, she listened to what we where looking for and with in a couple of weeks she found us the perfect home. The house is everything we wanted and more. I recommend everyone if you want to work with someone that looks out for your best interest and really cares call Carol Kline today.

Martha and Dan M

Carol was the consummate professional with an easy going very approachable attitude. She assisted us with looking at several properties with our goals in mind. She was always respectful of goals and showed us properties that fit our criteria. The negotiations and closing for our property were smooth and timely. Carol was a great resource when we had questions pertaining to the property and the local area and what owning a lake property entailed. In addition Carol was a great resource for contractors we needed to get projects done on our new property,

We would recommended her highly and use her again if the opportunity presented..

Sheila and Carol

Debbi-Thank you for working with us! We had you going all over the place. ???? You truly are amazing.

Denise L

Carol is friendly, knowledgable and willing to work hard. She did her best to get the best price for us. She was able to get an offer within just a month of listing!!

Earl and Beth B

Carol was awesome…she goes above and beyond her job duties as a realtor, while keeping it very professional. She sold our house in less than a week. Carol is a very nice person to work with. I would highly recommend her to anyone buying or selling.

Pam C

We can not say enough about Carol. She is a great person and realtor. Carol knows her stuff and she is not afraid to do or ask anything for her clients. She worked hard for us to get what we wanted. We also made friends in the process. If you are looking a home, Carol will find what you want & also help you get to know the area and not leave feeling like you are lost and on your own. Thanks Carol we love our new home!

April and John T

Debbi, I wanted to write something to thank you for all the hard work you consistently offered in getting me the right house for the right price. Over the years, I’ve used many realtors and have never had such confidence in any one of them as I have with you. Your professionalism, outstanding work ethic and endless resources made my purchase seamless and stress-free. At all times, I knew you had my back and that made this whole process so much easier for me. You knew what I wanted and you fought diligently for me. You made the purchase of my dream home happen and I am eternally grateful to you. Thank you for your efforts, your patience and your tenacity in representing me.

Hilda H

Carol is very professional and listens to your needs and wants! Very easy to work with and a wonderful person.

Lisa W

Carol was great. She went above and beyond as our buyer broker. She was there with us every step of the way, and went out of her way to meet with us to look at and go over homes we were interested in. Her expertise and knowledge were invaluable.

Thom M

Carol was great to work with. She was there to answer any questions we had. Her knowledge of the process made it a lot easier for us and very comforting for us as first time home buyers. We highly recommend Carol and we wouldn’t hesitate to use her in the future.

Brendan and Christine S

Carol sold our home in less than 2 weeks. She knows the area, the market, and the clients out there. If you are looking to sell and want to work with the best Realtor out there, call Carol. She’s been selling real estate for 28 years. She answers her phone on holidays and when she is on vacation! You definitely feel safe and that you hired the right person when you have Carol on your side. She also sold us two homes. We are very pleased with Carol. She took very good care of us when we were buying and when we were selling. She’s straight up, honest and has great ideas! You won’t be disappointed!

Ann Marie and Bob M

I’ve worked with a number of brokers, most bombarding me with anything and everything that came on the market. I had to weed through the listings to find properties that were worth closer investigation. My experience with Carol has been different. She only presented properties that she had checked into first. As we looked at the properties she was a tremendous asset determining what the potential would be and what the market is doing. She provided accurate local knowledge without sugar coating or pushiness. Carol always answered the phone or returned calls quickly, she made herself available around my schedule. At the inspection she had a trained eye to help find issues and people to call when a service was needed. I look forward to working with Carol as a seller when this property is complete, and will rely on her for future purchases.

Josh W

We contacted Carol because her name popped up on internet listings we were interested in and also based on the service award she has received. We told her what kind of vacation property we were looking for and provided a list of places we would like to see. She lined up 10 appointments for a Saturday visit to Maine. She also included a property she found saying “I think this could be interesting, it came on the market last night and I think you’ll like it.” She was absolutely right! Carol advised us very well through the process of making an offer and gave us VERY savvy advice about timing the offer & response time from the seller—all of which contributed to us successfully purchasing the property! The review & approval process turned out to be much longer & more complicated due to the current mortgage process, and also complications with this particular property. Carol helped us coordinate things from out of state and provided great local contacts. She’s very responsive, and personally great to work with. We highly recommend her.

Randall and Kris V

Several months ago, my wife and I “downsized,” and moved into a smaller home. We connected with Carol at an open house for another property, as we sold our home ourselves and were not working with a broker.

We found Carol to be an excellent agent—someone who was attentive to our needs, and someone who helped us “ask the right questions” as we looked at properties.

She is a true professional, as we recommend her without reservation.

Bill and Gerry Y

Debbi-Claire and I just wanted to send you a short note expressing our gratitude for your help in finding our house. We had been looking at property and houses, many of them selected and shown to us by you, as you tried patiently to comply with our needs and desires. In the midst of your showing a house of our choice (which turned out to be a very bad possibility) you suggested that we look at a property of your choice – – you thought it would be a good fit for what Claire and I were really looking for. You were so right.  You gave us excellent advise and help in bidding on and the purchase of the house.  We have lived here for four years now, and often mention how grateful we are to have met you. Please visit us any time…you are always welcome.

Bob and Claire W

Thank you so much Debbi, for helping us find the perfect summer property. With our needs being somewhat unique, we really appreciate the property search itself, but also every phone call you made on our behalf so we would be in compliance with local city codes, helping us find reputable contractors for our property, answering all our questions, and the follow through after the closing to make sure we were satisfied. Should we ever need real estate assistance again, we will surely be calling you again, and will certainly recommend you to everyone. Thank you again.

Bob & Anna P

Carol is a friendly,trustworthy business woman who helped sell my house in a down market. I am very pleased with her realistic assessment of the market and properties. Having been in the business for many years she is very knowledgeable and provided excellent response times to my calls. Whether you are buying or selling a property, she is a gem to work with. You can’t have a better partner in this major decision of life!

R. Ray

Some years ago my husband & I realized our dream – we retired to Maine for the summer and Florida for the winter. Then, life happened, and we made the decision to move full-time to Florida. We were given Carol Kline’s name by a friend and our journey began. There were a few “bumps” along the way (as life goes) and Carol’s ability to get information and quotes to us made the process simpler. Our home sold quickly!! We highly recommend Carol. She has an outgoing personality and is dedicated to her clients She gave us 110%.

Doreen & Dennis B

Thank you Carol and The Kline Team! We were so pleased with the way you handled both the listing/selling of our condo and the purchasing of our new home. We greatly appreciate the excellent service, thoughtfulness, patience, wealth of knowledge, talented associates and prompt communications during that process. Having you at our side during every step was comforting and gave us confidence that we were working in the right directions. If we had to do it all again, we absolutely would!

Marcus J.

Carol Kline is a fantastic realtor! Couldn’t ask for better! Mike and I contacted her, knowing full well she would be able to guide us in finding our first house. We had a few houses in mind that we wanted to look at so Carol met us one evening and we checked them out. After looking at a couple of them Carol knew without a doubt that those weren’t the houses for us. She then took us to a house she had heard about that day – and it happened to be in the area where Mike and I wanted to be. We took one look at it and knew it was the house for us! We all hear horror stories of people looking for their “dream house” and never finding it. It only took one evening for Carol to find us our house! Carol worked so diligently with the mortgage company; putting her foot down when she needed. She answered all of our emails and phone calls quickly and did a great job at explaining the home buying process, step by step. Mike and I will certainly spread the word about Carol and her company. We’re so thankful for our new house and especially thankful for Carol!

Mike and Laura M

After making a very difficult decision to sell my home, I knew I wanted a broker that I could trust.

While making this decision I stopped at a few open houses. I told the host broker my story and what I was looking for in a home. I didn’t hear back from any of these brokers, until I met Carol Kline. She was listening.

Carols knowledgeable, friendly, caring manner exemplifies her professionalism and success. Not only did she listen to my needs, she pointed me to other professionals when I needed that assistance. When she said she would meet you at 11:00, she was there at 11:00. When Carol said she would do something she did it. Her business plan to sell my home was perfect, with every detail covered. So perfect in fact, my home was under contract within 2.5 weeks.

Carol is a reliable, knowledgeable, friendly, professional business woman. She is a “go getter” with class. Just the person I needed and would look forward to working with again. It is my pleasure to recommend Carol Kline and her Team.

Thank you Carol!”

Kathy R

Carol was always helpful, conscientious, and professional during our vacation home endeavor. We experienced many twists and turns throughout this process and Carol was always there to help us through. Carol has been there for us even after our closing to help us with any questions we may have had or to give us referrals for work we wanted to get done on our new vacation home. Carol is Fantastic!!!

The Olsons

As an investor with 25 years experience in buying and selling real estate, I have dealt with many realtors over the years. I was introduced to Carol Kline several months ago when I called on one of her listings in Raymond.

Several things impressed me about Carol right from the start. First, she took my call though that may sound odd, oftentimes when I call on a listing, my call is answered by an answering machine or voicemail, and most times I don’t even get a return call, so getting a live person on the other end of the phone was great! Next, after asking her a few questions about her listing, I decided it probably wouldn’t work for me, and told her so. Carol, was insistent that I should come check out the property anyway, which I did the next day. Because of Carol, I ended up buying that property.

Just over a month ago, I had recommended one of Carol’s listings to a friend of mine that was looking to buy a home. I had met my friend at the property, and Carol was already there. While my friend was looking at the home, Carol shared with me that a local bank was offering an incentive package to qualified buyers in this down market. My friend decided to keep looking, but because of what Carol said, I ended up buying the home that deal had some up’s and down’s and Carol was right there pulling the deal back together and it closed.

Since I’ve met Carol, I’ve recommended her to several people I know, both buyers and sellers. I just can’t recommend her enough. Many brokers that I’ve done business with offer the very minimum just to make sure that the deal closes and they get a check. Carol stands out here also. It is because of her working her listings and pending sales that she makes difficult sales happen that would otherwise, most likely, fall apart.

I won’t hesitate to recommend Carol to both sellers and buyers, as an agent that will represent her clients with her best, showing integrity and honesty in her dealings.

Theresa  G

I would like to thank Carol very much for her kindness and professionalism that she showed me while she was selling my home. She went out of her way to help me when she didn’t have to. I am looking forward to working with her again in the near future.

Mary I

John and I would like to thank you for finding a home that suits our needs and lifestyle in the wonderful State of Maine. With your prompt , professional attitude and personal service we were able to successfully close on the property in record time. Your efforts were above and beyond what we have ever experienced with any other agent. Whether it was answering our questions all hours of the night and day or helping us move in, you were there with the support and a smile.

Debby and John W

Carol Kline is an outstanding realtor! Our home had been on the market for a year with another broker. We called Carol, who was highly recommended to us. After making a few minor changes, she and her team suggested, within 45 days our house was SOLD!! Carol walked us through the sale from our new home in VA without a flaw. You will not be disappointed !!

Tim and Megan R

Integrity, hard work and experience are just a few of the wonderful qualities that Carol Kline embodies. My husband and I have recently had the pleasure of selling our home during one of the most difficult real estate down turns our country has seen in years. It is my belief that the sale of our home which was a niche market due to price and location was only possible through the efforts of Carol and the Kline team. I do not hesitate to recommend hiring her or her team to handle property transactions and have on several occasions.

Martha P

Carol is dedicated to her career as a real estate professional and represents clients with great pride. She deeply cares about her clients’ needs and works very hard to make dreams happen. She is very realistic and helped us stay on track when we started to veer from our plan. Our journey of selling and buying was an adventure! Carol was supportive through it all and encouraged us to persevere, during the most stressful times. We are very pleased with the services Carol provided. She is a kind-hearted person with a great deal of integrity. Her personality, in conjunction with professionalism, knowledge, and experience make business with Carol remarkable. We highly recommend Carol to anyone looking for the best qualities a real estate broker has to offer.

Kristle V

We had a wonderful experience working with Carol Kline. It is a tough market for sellers right now and Carol went “above and beyond” to get our house sold. Whenever a problem came up, Carol found an answer. She was always there to help with things outside of her responsibility which was huge for us living far away. We recommend her highly, you won’t be disappointed.

Joan and Tony P

Our experience working with Carol Kline was wonderful. She took our needs in to consideration and went above and beyond for us. I feel that she truly had our best interest at heart. We are happy to say that the experience ended in us being the happy owners of our first home thanks to Carol.

Nathan and Sarah C

Purchasing my first place was a much like riding a rollercoaster. There were ups and downs (many of them), but Carol was able to steer me in the right direction every time. Her expertise in not only knowing the market, but helping me find the right person to finance the purchase was wonderful. When there was a hill to climb, she was always there, always available to talk or sit down and show me what was needed. Carol was absolutely wonderful with the entire purchase. I would suggest Carol to anyone that is looking to purchase a home- especially first time owners as she puts in the extra effort to make sure YOU know exactly what is going on.

Ashley R

If Oscars were given to the most talented and outstanding performers in the Realty business, you would most certainly be awarded this prestigious prize along with a standing ovation. You skillfully managed a very complex situation despite a myriad of taxing personalities. Your professionalism, business savvy, positive attitude, commitment and Christian values all contributed to us successfully purchasing the house of our dreams. Thank you from the depths of our heart… Bravo and Thank you!!!! If our family or friends should ever be in the market to purchase or sell a home, we know who to send them to.

James & Donna G

Carol Kline helped us sell two homes in the last year. She does a wonderful job marketing the properties, and she is very easy to work with. Thanks Carol for all your hard work!

Wayne & Kelley N

My wife and I made a very wise decision by using Carol Kline as our Realtor. We got our dream home at the price we wanted and the transaction was very smooth from negotiating the purchase price all the way through closing. Carol was very professional and knowledgeable. She was also very helpful in making sure that our transaction was able to stand up to government standards for the first-time homebuyers programs we utilized. If I ever consider making a move in the real estate market in Southern Maine again, my first call will be to Carol Kline.

Rick M

Dear prospective home buyers and sellers,

My husband and I purchased our first home in November and though I am educated in this field as a housing counselor I am very glad we chose to work with Carol Kline of the Kline Team. We first met Carol at an open house in late spring for a home that was just perfect but at that time we were still feeling out the waters and seeing what types of homes were around in the areas we were considering. That home sold very quickly I think in 11 days wow, which was impressive in this market. We knew we liked Carol right away. She was different than any of the other brokers we had met at open houses; she was genuinely interested in us and what we were looking for and provided information about the different areas we were considering. She took our information and as she heard of properties that she thought we would like over the next several months she would e-mail them to me. We then met her again at another open house that we looked at twice and she still had that same personal connection with us that she had at the first house of hers we looked at. She continued to keep in touch with us during those next few months even though we were not her clients and she knew we were just in the looking stage of the game. We had no rush to buy a home; we were taking our time. When we decided we wanted to take the next step and actually buy a wonderful home we knew we wanted to work with Carol. She had proven to us that she was all about her clients and making sure that they get exactly what they are looking for and at a fair price with their best interest in mind. We had many issues with finding the right mortgage company even though they all wanted us to sign with them. They were not offering the best that they could and we actually switched at the last minute and closed with a mortgage company that Carol suggested. Carol stood by us through the whole ordeal supporting us in any way that she could and I know we got a great mortgage and a beautiful new home. I would strongly urge anyone considering buying or selling a home to work with Carol. You won’t be sorry and you will get the best there is out there; trust me my husband and I were testing the market for a long time and met many of the people that are available to work with and she is the best. We met her selling a perfect home and were impressed and were equally as impressed with her commitment, professionalism and experience when she was then helping us buy the perfect home. We will choose to work with Carol again and again if we ever decide to move, which unfortunately for Carol, she did her job so well that we may never move! This house has everything we were looking for. We love her so much, she’s even on the house warming party invitation list and we hope to keep in touch with her.

We love you Carol thanks for everything you did in making this our perfect home.

Mike Tand Maryrose A

Thanks again for all your help. You are a true professional that represents the top of the real estate community. Job well done. We’ll be in touch in the future.

Scott R

Carol knows her stuff! She was on top of everything from the day we me until the day we closed. Carol also has the experience and knowledge that helped in every step of the process. She told us she’d sell our house in 30-60 days, but had it sold in 13! We would (and have) recommended her to anybody. Thank you Carol for going above and beyond during our journey.

Darren and Pam W

We called Carol to show us a home in New Gloucester. After falling in love with the home we had her list our house. Within 7 days we had accepted an offer and within 30 days were moving in to our new home. Carol’s strategies for selling in a down market exceeded expectations.

Troy and Tammy L

Working with Carol helped take the stress out of selling a house as a short sale. We put in the unfortunate situation to sell our house as a short sale so I called Carol Kline and two hours later she was at the house with paperwork and walked us through the process. She was very accommodating with the showings as to the times we could not have them as we have two little children who are at the house all day. Working with Carol and her team was a very pleasant process, and best of all she was able to sell the house in no time. Thank you Kline Team

Gary and Devon

We have been working with Carol Kline to sell our house as a short sale. She has been wonderful to work with and is very thorough! I highly recommend using her as your realtor!

Christy

Due to serious health issues, we needed to sell our home quickly and ultimately had to sell it in a short sale. Carol was extremely helpful–more than helpful. She guided us through each step which was like a roller-coaster at some points. She helped us through the emotions of losing our home and helped us get the best price possible while working with a large bank whose process is time-intensive and complicated. I would HIGHLY recommend Carol to anyone looking for assistance in the real estate market.

Beth 

Debbi, I want to thank you for keeping me informed to what is on the market. The property listing works for us as it shows where their locations are. You always reply to what I am looking for, as well as giving me options to what other properties I might like. It is alway a pleasure doing business with you! Thank you!

Mary O
