Meet the MacDonald family: Jacquelyn, her husband Liam, their 2-year-old son, Charlie, and their energetic Vizla, Jake.
They are from the Boston area. Jacquelyn works in education and her husband, Liam, is a firefighter.
They had been looking at properties all over Maine for years. The house that they ultimately bought was the perfect combination of a cozy home to comfortably host friends and family, all on a private pond, but close enough to town and the ski mountains to be appealing as a vacation rental.
"When looking for a real estate agent in the Bethel area, we were looking for someone who was from the area, understood the market, and would get to know us and what we were looking for in a home.
We first came across Cassie Mason Real Estate because Cassie was the listing agent on the home that we ended up buying."
"We have an energetic Vizla named Jake and we spend as much time as we can outdoors.
We had been looking for a house that we could use as a home base to explore the area while also having the option to rent it out for short-term rentals."
"We were a bit beaten down by our experience with the real estate market in the Boston area and were discouraged before our offer even went in as we had been outbid by cash offers multiple times over the years.
I was surprised that the market moved as quickly in the Bethel area as it has been in Greater Boston, especially given the pandemic, but Cassie was understanding and thoughtful. She offered us her professional opinion of the Bethel area market while keeping in mind our past experience trying to buy a house."
"Cassie and Amber took the time to get to know us, were extremely responsive and answered all of our questions through the process, and made us feel like they were invested in our buying process in a way that other agents we have worked with in the past did not. They continued to share important information, including vendors, local recommendations, etc. even after the buying process was complete. The personal touches throughout the process made it feel more like a relationship than simply a business transaction."
"As a first-time buyer, find an agent to work with that you feel you can trust and have confidence that they have your best interests in mind. Cassie and Amber were so wonderful from the start, we highly recommend working with them."
I strongly recommend working with Cassie and her team- they are knowledgeable, responsive, and take the time to get to know their clients."
We're ready to embark on this journey with you, and make it unforgettable.
