Kathy has lived in the mid-coast Maine area for over 30 years with her husband/builder Ruffy. Following Ruffy’s reputation for building quality homes, Kathy has had her pulse on the real estate market for quite some time. Together they built a “Ruffy Home,” as they are known locally, on the island of Jamaica where they have vacationed for 20 years along with their children. Kathy is a former piano teacher and her daughter owns a local business. Below is her take on mid-coast Maine real estate.
“Everything went very well. Kathy is a real trouper. We have been coming here for the last 5-6 years looking at all types of properties. Kathy hung in there with us and we finally found it. We would not think of dealing with anyone else but Kathy when it comes to real estate.” APRIL 2016
“As you know, this was an estate sale that we had to handle from NJ. We were at the funeral home and I mentioned to someone that it was critical that we find a trustworthy, hard-working real estate agent to sell my father-in-law’s home. Kathy was referred to us and it could not have gone better. When Kathy had to go away, Edna stepped in and did the heavy lifting. She was invaluable in the negotiation and back end work with the other agent. She also helped me keep the grass mowed and the snow plowed. This was a bit of a white elephant property and the first two deals fell. Edna reassured me she was not going to abandon me! Then, a cash buyer came into the picture. We could not have been more thrilled. Both Kathy and Edna were professional and so caring. We could not have asked for more. We would recommend Kathy and Edna to everyone. If we were in Maine, we would come to your office and tell all your agents they should be like these two.” Dec 2015
