"I highly recommend Elise Loschiavo at Vitalius. As a first-time home buyer, she helped me through the process with honesty, kindness, and positivity. She is a great listener and was incredibly responsive to all my questions. She checked in frequently and helped me every step of the way, with expert advice and humor. Ultimately, she helped me buy my first home and I am very grateful for all her work and dedication. I couldn't have done it without her."

I had pretty much given up on finding a house in Portland, as I had been looking for over a year. But then I got in touch with Erin Oldham: super agent! She called me the minute she saw a house that she thought I would like within my price range, and told me to come over to see it as soon as I possibly could. She knew the house would sell quickly. She was right. I went to see it that day, and I loved it! It's adorable, and it has all the items I was looking for (wood stove, back deck, nice yard with gardens and a shed). She advised me to  make an offer immediately. I'm SO glad she did! The next day, Erin handled the negotiations for me, as I was at work and couldn't really get away or talk much on the phone. And the next thing I knew, the house was under contract! Working with Erin was a dream.

22 Cormorant Place, South PortlandAfter not owning a home for many years, I was a bit overwhelmed when deciding to look into purchasing a condominium this year and knew I needed a good realtor to help me sort through the process. I was referred to Elise from a friend who loved working with her. From the beginning, Elise was warm, approachable and extremely helpful. I felt I could rely on her to have my best interest in mind. She was very responsive to all my questions and concerns no matter the time of day I contacted her. I ended up purchasing a home I am extremely happy in and for a price I could afford. I would highly recommend Elise to anyone looking for a great person to deal with whom also happens to be a great Realtor.

As soon as we called her, Susie Kendeigh hit the ground running and didn’t stop until the ink dried on the closing papers. Helping us buy and later sell our house, Susie proved to be a consistent, prompt communicator. We always felt confident she was on top of the details for our purchase and our sale. She made us feel like we were her priority. Susie’s work ethic, pride in her work, and communication skills stand out as a cut above. – Amanda & Ron Martin

After forty-seven years of living and raising a family in our Freeport home, Jim expanded his search area for us. We wanted to downsize but had no idea of the pitfalls that can surface especially when trying to sell a home, purchase a new home, and move in one week. We weren’t even certain of which town we wanted to live in. Jim’s knowledge of the market and professional manner was of great value to us. His pleasant personality had a calming effect when we were ready to throw in the towel. If we EVER decide to sell our new condo, Jim will be the first call we make because he listens, makes suggestions when necessary, and doesn’t hesitate to use his experience to walk the client through the process. Many, many times he had to smooth ruffled feathers on both sides of the table as demands began to surface! Jim is the Realtor of choice for our family and we would highly recommend him for any real estate activity. He has a “presence” about him that is invaluable!

Munjoy Hill

I thoroughly enjoyed working with Elise and Vitalius Real Estate on my recent purchase in Munjoy Hill. I’m a recent retiree planning to move back to my home state from Canada and needed to work with someone who knew the Portland area well and that I could trust. Elise fit the bill perfectly. My requirements were somewhat complicated and Elise worked with me to ensure all my needs were met. She made herself available, provided unique solutions when issues arose, knew the local players and market, always returned emails and calls, and drove my complex deal to closure, always exceeding my expectations.

Elise did a fantastic job, managing to get them both closed in within a month of each other!  She was on top of the process from before the time we listed to the following year, providing tax info.  She is witty, bright, personable and trustworthy — all the best traits you can find in an agent. I will most definitely reach out to Elise for my next Portland real estate endeavor.

R. Kingsley

This was my first ever property purchase and was more challenging than I could have anticipated! Fortunately, I had Kristine as my support. I was grateful for her patience with us, as our goals and expectations continued to evolve throughout the process. Kristine was always accessible, always willing to answer my questions (or else direct me where to go for the answers—acting as a perfect “source for the source”). If you’re looking for a knowledgeable, personable team who will to truly represent your best interests, I highly recommend the Vitalius Real Estate Group!

My husband and I had goals to move from the Lewiston-Auburn area to the South Portland-Scarborough area, and Kristine came highly recommended through a close friend. Throughout our condo search, Kristine advocated strongly for us during some minor and unexpected hurdles. Thanks to her, we were able to close on our new home on the day for which we had originally planned. Furthermore, it’s clear to me that Kristine values her clients not only as clients, but as people—we received surprise housewarming gifts, and she’s kept in touch with us regarding our new home. Thanks again, Kristine!

Erin - I have to tell you. I have loved working with you.  You answer your phone and are there when I need you.  You bring it to a different level and we are so grateful to be working with you.  We are so happy with you.

"My fiancée and I used Elise to purchase our first home this past summer. Elise was wonderful to work with. She was incredibly patient with us as we looked at houses over a long span of time, and waited for us to find the right place, without any pressure. She is personable, knowledgeable about the market, and has a laid-back and calming style that was refreshing in the otherwise stressful home buying process. We would recommend her to anyone."

Dear Erin - We are so very excited for this next big step our family is going to take and we cannot thank you enough for helping to make it happen.  Whether it  was showing up the house repeatedly, answering our never ending questions (and never making us feel stupid!), listening to both our view points, negotiating like a pro, and connecting us to a wonderful group of experts, you again and again provided us with amazing help.  I can't not imagine going through the process of buying our first home with anyone else.  Our Best, Anna & Reid
My recent home purchase was a very difficult and out-of-the-ordinary transaction. It seemed as though everything that could go wrong did go wrong (it had nothing to do with Kristine!). Kristine tackled each challenge with grace. She was always upbeat, encouraging, and quick to help with scheduling  various inspections since my husband and I both work during the day. Because our home purchase was atypical, Kristine did not always know the answer to some of our questions. She was open, honest, and if she did not know the answer, she knew precisely who did - and she always reported back to us. I could not have made it through this process without Kristine in my corner and I would highly recommend her to anyone who is eager to purchase or sell a home.

42 Boxwood Dr, Yarmouth, Maine

We worked with Susie to buy our house in Yarmouth. We found her to be extremely smart, responsive, resourceful and thoughtful. After interviewing several realtors we decided to work with Susie because we wanted someone we liked who was really tapped into the Yarmouth market and community. We made a great choice. She knows the town really, really well: We looked at a lot of houses, and she had connections to most of them-friends who lived at the house next door, etc. Those connections gave us tons of insight into house histories and neighborhood dynamics that we wouldn't have had otherwise. I think my other favorite thing about Susie is her demeanor. We never once felt like she was trying to sell us on something, or trying to sweep concerns under the rug to make the sale happen-we always felt that she understood what we cared about and what our concerns were and was representing our interests 100%. We also like that she is a great listener but isn't afraid to voice her true opinion. And she really knows her stuff. It's worth noting too that in the middle of our process she had a two-week overseas vacation that she had scheduled long before; we were concerned, but the Vitalius team's coverage was seamless-nothing fell through the cracks. In fact, we went under contract on what became our new house before Susie got back, when her colleague Kristine Trogner was covering very skillfully for her. Beyond all that professional stuff, we also came to like Susie a lot as a person. Home buying is a pretty intimate process; we got to know her pretty well, and we're really psyched that she's one of our neighbors. Highly, highly recommend!

My partner and I recently purchased our dream home in Portland Maine. Elise showed us a property on a cold-call over the winter...  a few months later she called to let us know she had a property that was a great fit. Of note is that Elise was not our real estate representative at that time. Elise and the Vitalius team exceeded our expectations. They were excellent with problem solving and helping us with contractor referrals. Highly recommend!

Elise and Brit walked us through our first home purchase with the best possible care. They helped us pin down the best neighborhoods for our needs and were stunningly responsive to every request and email. Elise's knowledge of the market was incredibly valuable to us and we were grateful for her humor and patience throughout our search. We are thrilled to be in our dream home now because of their careful advising but will miss working closely with this extremely talented team.
Kristine is a top notch realtor! As a first time homeowner, I was in need of a professional with serious expertise and a supportive perspective. Kristine provided all that and more. She was adept and intuitive when I felt unsure or needed an answer quickly, and she really knows her stuff. I'm now the happy owner of a beautiful house! Kristine is trustworthy and frankly indispensable; I highly recommend her!
