"Diana was very professional and paid great attention to detail. She made the entire experience of selling my home fantastic and no worries about leaving my vacant home in her hands. It was a pleasure doing business with Maine A La Carte." -Sharon in Prospect, Me 

“My wife and I successfully and quickly did a “For Sale By Owner” sale of our home in Gray last summer using Maine A La Carte Real Estate’s $795 MLS Listing service.  It was a delight to work with Diana Corbett who was very knowledgeable and professional.  The $795 service included Diana preparing a market analysis on the property, completion of the Property Disclosure, and listing of the property on the MLS.  Also included was their professional real estate for sale sign, a key lock box for the entrance door, and access to software for scheduling viewings and the various required inspections of the property, all of which greatly simplified the showing and selling process.  Other services were available from Maine A La Carte Real Estate for an additional fee, but we did not need to use any of those services since we did lots of that work ourselves, or those services were accomplished by the buyer’s agent.  When I talked about our asking price based on Diana’s market analysis with other full-service real estate agents, who were after our business, they each said the price was unrealistic, and that we should expect to have to come down on our price by 10% or more.  We had multiple viewings within a few days of the MLS listing and had the property under contract shortly thereafter.  We ended up selling the property at only $1,000 (much less than 1%) below our asking price, at the bank appraisal price that we accepted to expedite the sale.  We can see from the bank appraisal that we left nothing on the table, despite other realtors and the real estate industry in general warning that “For Sale By Owner” sales are not profitable.  We did end up paying the Buyer’s Agent fee, to assist the buyers and to have that agent handle many details from the contract drafting all the way to the closing, but our total cost to sell our home ended up several thousand dollars below what we would have paid a full-service agency that would have required a full commission to include both seller and buyer agents' commissions, and who would not have gotten us more than the bank appraised price.  We consider the $795 MLS service a great deal!  We have and will continue to wholeheartedly recommend Maine A La Carte Real Estate and Diana Corbett to anyone considering selling their home here in Maine.” -Larry in Gray, Me

"I'm an out of state investor and working with Maine A La Carte and Diana has made my first purchase in Maine an efficient and motivating process. We were able to identify a great property, through digital tours and phone calls and the whole process through closing was very simple and low stress due to great organization and quarterbacking by our Broker. All documents throughout the process were signed digitally up until the final closing with our Agent physically attending the local close while we wrapped up and shipped off the final paperwork from the local title company. My business partner and I were pleasantly surprised by the regular communication and flexible working hours given we are on the west coast. We look forward to making more investments in Maine and working with Maine A La Carte for many years to come. Thanks again!" -Daniel in Reno, Nv

"My Wife and I worked with Diana to buy a house in Portland, Maine. She was very quick to respond and professional. We also never felt pressured to put in an offer. She made it a point to make sure we were getting the right price and a great quality house. Thank you!" - Scott in Boston, Ma

"We worked with Diana to close on a vacation home on a Casco Bay Island. She was easy to reach, quick to respond, and kept us in the loop regularly. She was thoroughly prepared for the closing, making it one less thing for us to worry about in our busy lives." - Allison in Portland, Me

"The home buying process is definitely a stressful one. I was so glad to have Diana on my side through every step of it. There were times when I was ready to lose hope, but she always came through and knew how to make things come together. Her knowledge, expertise and professionalism make her an outstanding agent to work with!" -LeeAnn in Litchfield, Me

"Diana was extremely helpful and went above and beyond to answer our questions during all stages of the selling process. She was understanding about our situation and worked very hard to guide us through a long-distance relocation. Diana is creative, informative, and a super realtor! - Dara in Tampa, Fl

"Diana worked in my best interest when buying my new home. She was available the same day to answer questions, I received timely updates from Diana during the negotiation process." -Edith in Waterboro, Me
