Growing up in Southern Maine, I was given a unique view into the Hospitality Industry through our family-owned-and-operated campground. Everything about it, from the community aspect to making people feel “at home”, gave me a sense of self and joy that is hard to describe and, until Real Estate, was hard to duplicate.
For 15 years prior to entering the Real Estate business, my career was corporate bank management. I earned my Master’s degree at a small private business school in Central Maine for Business Management while simultaneously earning my Bachelor’s degree in Finance. This background wired me to function around real estate a bit differently than the average agent. Since I am licensed in lending and with my banking background, I understand how the “back work” navigates through banking channels. This experience enables me to better achieve my customer’s goals in a timely fashion. I pride myself on being able to find nontraditional avenues that help expedite the closing process while ensuring methodical accuracy.
My clients have learned to count on me being prepared, efficient, honest, and knowledgeable. I view my customers like I always viewed my campers at our campground—as extended family. So welcome! I look forward to bringing you “home” in Maine!
If I could give 10 stars, I would. Deb is everything you want in a realtor – knowledge of the area and the current market trends, good negotiation skills, attention to detail, flexibility, and on top of all that, a delight to work with. She is tenacious, and has great attention to detail. We are by no mean newbies to the process of buying and selling houses. We have bought and sold quite a few, and even so, Deb had great suggestions that we may not have thought of, and we were very glad to have her working for us. She helped honestly evaluate some properties we considered, and her input was invaluable.
Deb was nothing short of amazing to work with. She was attentive and knowledgeable, even after closing. She was personable and 100% about her clients best interest, always ready to go to battle for you. I can’t thank her enough for everything she did for my family.
I was referred to Debra and almost immediately found a home I was interested in. It wasn’t her listing, and it’s historically competitive and busy in this market, but Debra was efficient, tenacious, prepared, and ultra professional. The transaction happened very quickly, but she guided me through the process capably, referred me to a number of local experts for the inspections, financing, and title work (multiples for each so I had a choice), and I couldn’t be more content with the results. If you are looking for an agent who has your best interest in mind and a wealth of regional knowledge, Debra is the one. While I hope I never have to move again, if I do, I know who I’ll be working with!
Debra was so professional yet treated us like friends. She made our dream come true and worked hard to close in less then two weeks! We are so very thankful for her help and kindness and would recommend her to anyone wanting a wonderful experience with a fantastic outcome. Thank you Debra we are so grateful we found you Merry Christmas…
If you’re buying property in Maine, Debra Hamilton is the only way to go. She was beyond amazing. We live in Rhode Island and were buying in Maine which we thought could be tricky. Not with Debra. She kept in constant contact guiding and directing us along the way. Debra kept both my vision and my husband’s vision (which at times were very different) at the forefront of our search. We hit a few bumps along the way with the selling agent and Debra represented us with such passion and support as I could only imagine she would do for her closest friends and family. In the end, Debra helped us find EXACTLY what we were looking for and we couldn’t be happier. Like I said, if you’re looking for property in Maine and don’t use Debra Hamilton, you’re doing yourself a disservice. Call her or meet with her and you will instantly understand why she’s the way to go.
Where to begin? I cannot speak highly enough about Deb Hamilton, both as an agent and as an individual. I cannot imagine having worked with anyone else. Even though I only considered one property (which I ultimately purchased), from the broker experiences that I have witnessed (doing the bare minimum to make a sale), I know just how lucky I am to have found Deb. She was my advocate and ally, and without her, I truly would have never purchased this farm. Not only is she genuine and approachable, but Deb’s work ethic, integrity, ability to see and create opportunities forward where others might only see the end of the road (myself included, at times), come across loud and clear at all points during the process. From the moment we first spoke, to the day of the closing 3 months later, she was in my court – working with me every step of the way to move the ball forward. She took time to understand me, my wishes, anxieties, and explore any impediments to the property purchase – and there were a few big ones! Deb is polished, a superb communicator, negotiator, and connector, but she also doesn’t hesitate to roll up her sleeves, put on muck boots, and get right in the trenches (or, in my case, the chicken barn and dirt basement), helping to explore and properly understand the property. Having grown up on a farm and still farming a bit, Deb’s understanding of the unique challenges of an older property and its buildings and structures, gave me great peace of mind. If I had questions and she didn’t have answers, she hopped on the phone and found the people who did. Also, as a current business owner with a history in banking, Deb had unique financial insights into the mortgage and insurance processes. She was able to answer questions for the lender and insurance broker that I couldn’t have possibly known and explore potential income topics with me as I look to restore the farm. In short, Deb is an asset – one that any potential home buyer would be lucky to have as their guide. If you are looking for someone with deep knowledge of the area and industry, someone who approaches the field differently – with empathy, patience, and diligence – Deb is it.
