"Because he's fantastic. Marc has been our realtor for two condo purchases and one sale. He's always available, unflappable, well-informed and supremely competent. He helped us sell a condo in Summer 2017 at short notice, and to get our asking price at that. He's a great realtor."
-Scott MacEachern, Client
"We were a difficult family and he worked hard to find us the perfect house. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy. "
-Sheryl Dekelbaum, Client
"Marc is a pro's pro. Conservative, yet right there in the trenches with me as an out-of-state buyer with specific needs. His advice was always spot-on. His complete understanding of this market combined with his very real empathy makes him the complete package. I recommend Marc without reservation."

-Elizabeth , Client
"We had our home listed for 14 months with out a single offer. After pulling it off the market and re-listing with Marc, we were under contract in 6 days!! Marc gave helpful advice, that fit within our scope of the sale and did ALL the leg work without being asked. If only the rest of life could be this easy! Anyone in need of a dedicated professional, look no further! Marc is all you need. "
-Chris Emmons, Client
"Marc impressed us on the day we met by asking good questions that helped clarify what mattered the most in our search for a home. He then followed up with good but not overwhelming suggestions. Marc is experienced and knowledgeable in real estate throughout Maine and especially Portland. He was always willing to make the extra effort including working with us long distance and helping us through several schedule adjustments. We valued his honest opinion and his fair and realistic guidance. We whole-heartedly recommend Marc to anyone looking for a broker in the greater Portland area. "
-Laura Withers & Bruce Couillard, Client
"Marc handled the sale of an apartment building for my family. He took charge and handled all the details with no glitches. He introduced himself to the tenants and worked with them to schedule showings. He listed our building on a Wednesday and had it under contract within a week. Marc's consideration for all parties involved (and there were a lot) resulted in what was anticipated to be a stressful transaction going smoothly. I highly recommend Marc to anyone interested in purchasing or selling."

"Marc….very nice!!! I want to thank you for getting my house back on the market quickly. Two quick points: 1) You were able to get multiple pictures on Realtor.com when I was previously told that the site only supported 1 picture, and 2) You created this GREAT virtual tour without being asked, where as previously I requested this numerous times and one was never created. I look forward to working with you on the sale of my house. Thanks for making this easy!"
-Noah Davis, Client

"Many thanks to Marc Chadbourne for his nonstop professionalism in helping prepare my mother's home for presentation and then carefully and wisely overseeing the sale through to closing. It was a pleasure to work with Marc and it was awesome to watch him overcome the many small and medium-sized obstacles that came our way during the process. I wish all businesses had this level of friendliness and competency."
-The Clarks, Client
"I had worked with Marc for six months while he sold my previous home. I received OUTSTANDING service. Marc worked really hard to keep everything going smoothly with both transactions. Marc took care of every detail for me."
-Barbara B, Client
"Marc is the best Realtor. This is the third time we have needed his expertise in selling/buying real estate and we wouldn't use any other Realtor! We recommend him to everyone who has real estate needs."
-The Stone's, Client
"Marc is a tireless, professional real estate agent. he portrays the ideal, to me, of what a real estate agent is supposed to be all about: Helpful, knowledgeable and patient. If he doesn't know the answer to a question, he researched it and gets back to you promptly. Marc is attentive to details and provides great insights, when I request them... I recommend Marc Chadbourne for any real estate needs, without reservation..."
-Your Cheerleaders!, Client
"Marc is the best! Until we met and worked with Marc we did not hold realtors in very high esteem. Marc completely changed our minds. He is a delight to work with. Marc pays attention to detail, really listens and hears what we want and works incredibly hard to help us find the perfect property. Marc is both professional and personable. We appreciate his vast knowledge of his profession which along with his ability to explain things clearly made us better home buyers."
-The Veilleux's, Client
"In helping my sister find a realtor, I came upon Marc Chadbourne. What a blessing he has been throughout the whole ordeal. This was not a typical list, show and sell. I always thought of the home sale and purchase as a cut and dry process, however the opposite is so true. The knowledge required and stamina needed for this career is astounding. Marc spent many months not only listing and showing this home, he was also counselor in many instances. We could not have done any of this without him. To say that Marc went above and beyond is an understatement."
