If you're looking to buy a home, she goes above and beyond to show you everything you want and need that is on your list. If you are selling a home, she does a wonderful thorough job and gets you the most she can. Either way, be prepared for a fast transaction with her because she wastes no time and gets your house sold fast or finds the perfect home for you to move in to. I have known Amy for a long time now (20+ years), and she is a very honest and trustworthy agent. Also someone that is very easy to relate to. Her professionalism is top notch. I wouldn't have any one else look for a home for me, or to sell my house for me. Her knowledge on all aspects of houses and home buying process is very impressive. She definitely does more than expected to make sure all aspects of the buying/selling process goes smoothly.
I am an investor that has purchased and sold over 1500 properties as well as purchasing many rental properties that I am still holding. I have seen and been involved in every single type of real estate situation and relationship that you can imagine. I have never worked with an agent and or firm that has been as efficient, knowledgeable, motivated and effective as Amy Maines and 1st Class Real Estate (especially when always looking out for what is truly best for their client verses just doing what needs to be done in order to receive a commission). I have worked mainly with Amy Maines who is more than qualified to handle any real estate needs while insuring that you are receiving the best deal possible (whether selling or buying). My experiences with the other agents have paralleled in comparison. I have also dealt with the broker Rhyan Finch on many occasions who holds his staff to the highest standards with no toleration for anything less than the best. He is over the top with training and procedures and will go to bat for any of his customers rights with unbelievable tenacity and persistence regardless of the path. He will not back down from fighting for what is right and best for his clients until exactly that is achieved. If you have any real estate needs you will not find a company that can service your needs better than 1st Class Real Estate.
Portsmouth is not always the easiest locale to sell especially since the tunnel tolls went into effect - and our property had been on the market quite awhile. We listed with Amy and got a quick sale and a fair price. Amy was a pleasure to work with and diligent down to the 11th hour!
She is amazing! She listened to exactly what my husband and I were looking for in a house, and showed us properties that were perfect fits for our taste. I would highly recommend Amy to anyone looking for the perfect new home.
She helped make the transition absolutely flawless. Her communication was great and she was able to take a lot of stress off our shoulders during the whole process. Would definitely use her & 1st Class Real Estate again!
She was always available for questions and worked quickly to meet our needs. I would recommend her to anyone but she is the first-time home buyer's best friend. Amy streamlined the process!!
