We had a wonderful experience with Leah! We started our home buying and selling process starting in February of 2019 and just finished buying our new home and selling our old home recently. She was super patient with us as we searched for our perfect forever home, and she was very quick to get us in to see listings that we were interested in.

Leah is by far the best realtor we have ever worked with! She goes above and beyond to help you, always responds back in a timely manner. She also has no problems showing houses that are cheaper or fixer uppers. We have dealt with so many realtors that wont even take the time to show you houses that are in the 20k range cause it's a waste of their time. She is truly 1 of a kind. She will be our realtor for buying and selling! Cant wait to purchase another home through her!

Leah assisted my parents who were moving up here from Connecticut. She was terrific to work with on every level. We found a beautiful home that met all my parents’ needs and we couldn’t have done it without her. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

Leah made our entire home buying experience a thing of beauty! She went out of her way to help us here in Pennsylvania visit homes that we were interested in by face timing online...even through the worst of a true Maine winter! As a distance buyer, I am certainly happy to highly recommend Leah to anyone who wants a homebuying experience that is both professional and personal. GREAT JOB!!

My experience with Leah was a great one. She is a hard worker and is committed to her customer to achieve best results. Anytime I had a question or needed an answer for something she got right back to me. She is a real professional in every way. I would highly recommend her to anyone in need of a realtor.

Leah Watkins did an excellent job. She made finding my new home and closing really easy and pretty painless for me.

Leah was absolutely amazing to work with. Always respectful, kind, knowledgable and attentive. She worked very hard to get our house sold. Highly recommend working with Leah. She's a go getter!

Leah gave us 110% effort and expertise throughout our entire selling experience. From the first meeting, when she came to our property already having researched comparative properties, without even knowing whether we would sign a contract with her, until the end holding my hand throughout the last stressful two days before closing. Her advertising and enthusiasm was incredible, she even made our unfinished basement look perfect in her pictures! Her integrity and positive personality are delightful. We recommend her to help sell your property or to purchase a new one without reservation.

Leah did an amazing job with communication, and was very motivated to get us into a home. Leah is a very charmful person, with a tremendous personality. We recommend anyone to Leah who is serious about purchasing a home.

Leah made a potentially difficult sale a full blown success. I bought the property from Houston Texas and Leah was my eyes and ears through the whole process. From videoing the entire property and being there for me when the property was inspected. I can’t say how much how well she did to make the sale and closing a success.

Not sure we could have pulled off buying a home without Leah. She is patient, efficient, professional and understanding. So grateful for her help!

We have been looking for a lake cottage for over a year. We finally got serious in our search on April 1st, (Easter Sunday) and contacted a local realtor in the area. Leah responded within 15 mins and met us within the hour at the camp we wanted to look at. She was proffessional, upbeat and and very honest. She took the time to listen to what we were looking for, explained things clearly and eased out fears on major fixer-uppers. After months of looking, several offers made that didn’t pan out, Leah found our diamond in the rough! We made an offer sight unseen based on the video Leah took for us. Leah went out of her way to meet with contractors, local code enforcer (on what could and couldn’t be done) and held our hands through the entire process. We closed on August 3, and I can honestly say we miss her sunshine smile😊 and our weekend searches with her. I would highly recommend Leah, she is a hard worker and made us feel like we were her only clients.

We now think of Leah as a very good friend and wish her all the success she deserves.

Leah Watkins helped make my dreams of farm-ownership come true. As a beginning farmer working with the USDA's Farm Service Agency to purchase property for farming, it was difficult to be taken seriously until Leah teamed up with me. She believed in me and gave my real estate search much-needed credibility; Leah truly was my champion.

The FSA's Direct Farm Ownership loan is a lengthy and involved process, which Leah took upon herself to learn more about in order to prepare my proposal for Sellers. With no pre-qualification and a government branch that is little known outside the agricultural community, my offers on potential farm-properties were a hard sell, but Leah was tenacious. She loves local food and local farmers.

Throughout the process Leah was always on the ball, making sure inspections were lined up and ensuring that everyone had the information they needed so that Closing could as smoothly as possible. Leah is a friend to any home-buyer, but for farmers seeking their forever-farm home, Leah Watkins is a staunch ally who wants to do her part to support local agriculture and she does so by connecting farmers with their dream farms.

After nearly 10 years building my income from farming so that I could one day purchase property for farming, I finally bought my forever-farm home, and in a big way it is thanks to Leah J Watkins. I strongly encourage Maine farmers looking to buy their own farms to bring Leah onto your team and make those dreams a reality.

Leah is great to work with. She came to our first meeting with her homework done. She gives guidance, offers advice and listens to her clients thoughts and ideas. Selling my family home was emotionally trying but Leah maintained an upbeat attitude throughout. She pushed me at all the right times. My house went under contract fives days from listing. Better than I ever expected!
