Five stars for Rick Theriault. From the first contact to the conclusion of the closing Rick was patient and courteous. He gently educated me about the market for my property and kept me informed of developments at all times. It was a pleasure working with him. And oh yeah, by the way -- he got my property sold, and far sooner than I was expecting.
Rick Theriault and I worked for more than six months to find the best property based on my desires – acreage for hunting , a year round cabin and waterfront or access to it.
We had one early on but it was a seven of ten. Rick helped coordinate the bid and negotiations but it wasn’t meant to happen and I wasn’t disappointed. Rick explored opportunities in a wider arc and did not fail to suggest things to look at. IN July a new listing came up on Lake Chesuncook that was promising although a six hour drive from my house. Rick checked it out and I agreed to visit. It was priced higher than we felt it was worth, but as I’ve heard from your office, “nothing happens without an offer”. We went back and forth and settled on a deal including contents about 20% less than listed price. Rick was instrumental in working through the intricacies and personalities of the parties involved. Particularly helpful researching access past Caribou check point and restrictions related to the North Woods. Given the driving distance he visited the site to make sure things were as promised.
Rick is great for the person looking for the hunter’s paradise or off the grid location. He is a solar and wind energy expert, former bear and moose guide as well.
Debbie Holmes blends professionalism and integrity with small town friendliness. She takes the time to listen and understand what the buyer/seller is looking for, then tries her best to realize their dreams. She will spend whatever time it takes traipsing through woods/raw land in good or bad weather, and does it with humor and a smile. Debbie has a wealth of contacts that might be needed after the sale - i.e. permits, contractors, needed services, etc. Debbie is very proficient at combining business and fun, it was such a pleasure to work with her!!! I would HIGHLY recommend Debbie Holmes of United Country Real Estate/Lifestyle Properties of Maine to anyone interested in buying or selling property in Lubec, Maine.
I give her Five + stars in all categories:
> Local knowledge *****+
> Process expertise *****+
> Responsiveness *****+
> Negotiation skills *****+
We had a tremendous experience with Lifestyle Properties of Maine. Rick Theriault really bent over backwards for us, and we had a great time driving all over creation with him. If you are looking for a property in a remote location (or wherever), he's your man. We now consider him a good friend.
Good luck camp hunting,

Rick was very helpful when we purchased our new home in Maine and went above and beyond to help us with all aspects to ensure we were satisfied with all the questions we asked about the property. If he didn't know the answer he would very quickly find out. My wife and I would highly recommend him.
We were very pleased with Doug Reed’s work on selling our 119 acres of forestland in Dixmont. The promotional material that he prepared was outstanding and the follow-up was excellent. He presented several offers in a clear, organized manner, helped us deal with questions from the title company and stuck with it through thick and thin even when offers didn’t work out. He even followed through with one offer while he was on vacation.
When our sale went through, he moved the paperwork along right on schedule and wrapped everything up exactly as promised.
We were impressed!
Working with Doug Reed was a pleasure. As out of state clients, he worked really hard to make each of our trips to Maine worthwhile. He took the time to understand exactly what we were looking for. After sacrificing a few long Saturdays, he found us the right property. He was knowledgeable and very helpful through the purchase process.
We will be forever grateful for his help. He found us our dream property and he will help you find yours.

In early May, we contacted United Country-Lifestyle Properties of Maine, with the intention of putting our camp in southern Aroostook County on the market. We made the call to the agency on a Saturday morning, and Rick met us at our camp that very afternoon. From this first meeting until the day we signed the papers to formally sell the camp Rick was with us every step of the way. He was diligent about answering our questions, kept us appraised with regards to prospective buyers, and assisted us in the process of being realistic about the real estate market.
In a nutshell, Rick was a professional in all aspects of the sale. He followed up with prospective buyers, discussing with their realtors the concerns and compliments that accompanied each showing and apprised us at each juncture. He listened to what people were looking for in a property and when appropriate gave them insight into the reasons why our camp could and would best meet their needs.
Rick is a Maine Guide and lifelong resident of the northern Penobscot/southern Aroostook area. With his working knowledge of the woods, lakes and streams of northern Maine, Rick is a natural for matching prospective buyers with properties that will meet their dreams for living with nature in the great State of Maine.
Rick was a positive influence in the sale of our camp. He was a cheerleader with regard to our property, a savvy analyst with regard to the appraisal procedure and a competent closer when the right buyer came to the front.
In honesty, we have had nothing but positive experiences with Rick and would highly recommend him as a sales agent one can trust when making the decision to place your property on the market. As a sales agent, Rick Theriault is a man of honesty and integrity.

At first, I thought the commission rate was high. However, with all the hard work and time that Rick and his brokerage company put into my property listing, we got exactly what we paid for. Rick told us that he would sell our ranch at a fair market value, and that is exactly what he did.
Rick and his broker came out to our property in the Winter and did a photo shoot. They returned in the Spring and did an updated photo shoot. Then they returned again to do a 3D virtual tour. They came back yet again with a drone pilot and did an entire video of the property, including the land and buildings on it. Rick and his company actively marketed our property, while the previous real estate company just sat by the phone waiting for it to ring. My hat is off to Rick and company...outstanding job! - Dave Salkind
