Why Work With Us?
Here's what our satisfied customers are saying about us:
Derek was an excellent broker to work with. I highly recommend him and look forward to working with him again in the future. Derek is extremely professional, responsive, and skilled with the work he provides throughout a real estate transaction. Often brokers give off the ‘overly sales oriented’ vibe and would be happy to sell you anything that gave them a commission check. Derek isn’t that broker at all we felt he was highly invested in finding the right fit for us. Additionally, Derek was really helpful in terms of property valuation and navigating price points and offers. It’s clear that he brings MBA level support to the transaction. Again, I can’t speak highly enough of Derek and recommend him to all buyers. I trust he’d do a great job!

Derek was an incredible real estate agent to work with! From the initial stage of putting our house on the market to following through with the final details re: closing, Derek inspired utmost confidence, professionalism, and care. I would highly recommend him to anyone who's considering putting their home on the market. Additionally, Derek's marketing skills are top notch and he did an amazing job working with an interior designer to get our house in tip top shape to place on the market. I give Derek an all-around thumbs up for his incredible work!

We had a really fantastic experience with Derek. He is professional, knowledgeable and personable. Communication with Derek was a breeze (he even laughed at our corny jokes). I loved his clear and easy to follow timelines and how much time he was willing to spend with us to make sure everything was right. He really went above and beyond with our listing, the staging and photography let our old farmhouse really shine. Would highly recommend it to anyone.
I would highly recommend Derek if you are considering buying or selling a home! I had purchased a new home out of state and needed to sell my current Maine home fairly swiftly. Unfortunately, the process of selling coincided with the start of the COVID pandemic. This added another element of complication and potential stress to the selling and showing process. I was very apprehensive regarding trying to sell my home in this environment. From my first meeting with Derek through the entire process communications were stellar, there was a comprehensive plan and the process was organized. Derek’s marketing of my home, including 3D virtual walk through, aerial drone footage, customized web site and truly stunning professional photographs gave potential buyers a very detailed overview enabling them to make an initial determination before even stepping in the home as to whether it fit what they were looking for. This meant more potential actual buyers as opposed to just foot traffic. I work from home and have several dogs so minimizing the times I had to pack up and leave was important to me. Derek understood this and worked to ensure showings were organized around my schedule, efficient and also, important during COVID, safe. Start to finish Derek was available for any questions or concerns that I had. He was extremely competent and personable which made this process enjoyable and relatively stress free. If I ever buy or sell in the Maine area again, I would definitely want Derek as my partner in the venture, it was a great experience working with him.

Derek Goff is the best of the best. We were nervous about starting the process of buying our first home, but Derek went above and beyond the duties of a realtor. We met him at his home buyer class about 6 months ago and decided that we were ready to start looking in early June. Derek took us to several homes and always accommodated our schedule. He was responsive, thorough, and knowledgeable. He pointed out various red flags in certain homes and we really felt like he took good care of us. We put several offers in until they accepted our offer on the 4th house. When determining what to offer, Derek had recommendations on what he would list it for if he was the agent and always supported our offers with reasonable contingencies that we felt comfortable with. He was also there throughout our pending process as well. We happened to be delayed several times over some issues in the house and Derek always advised us in the right direction. We had a couch scheduled to be delivered but then couldn't close in time so I had to wait at the house and load it into my car since we didn't live there yet. Derek was so kind and called to check on me and asked if we needed any help with it. He is not only a great realtor, but a helpful and caring friend. Thank you, thank you, thank you Derek! We're so excited about our new home! Hopefully we won't be selling for many years.... but when we do, you're our guy!

I always said to my husband that if we ever sold our home, I'd drive the agent nuts, based on some of the listings I see on line.....typos, bad pics, not relative info about the property, etc. I would expect better than that. I didn't have to drive Derek Goff 'nuts'. The quality of his work was beyond outstanding. The property having its own website, with extremely professional photos, 3D rendering, floor plan, video, typo-free relative info write up, etc., etc., etc.! is amazing. His use of all online media outlets for advertising. His emails of statistics of how your listing is doing in comparison to your comps was amazing. He was always super responsive to emails, texts or calls with questions. His thoroughness in preparation for the open house and every other aspect of the sale was commendable.

Joe made the process of buying our first home so easy, smooth and enjoyable! He provided us with tons of information and every detail about the history of the house. He explained each step, starting with the process of the mortgage, how to do our house inspections and all the way to the closing, which he made very easy to understand. This made all of our nerves and stress disappear! He was always a text or call away and is a friendly, funny and genuine person to be around! We would highly recommend Joe to be someone's realtor for anyone in the market looking for a new home!

I couldn't have asked for a better realtor! Right from the beginning, we liked Joe! He's laid back, easy going, and never once did I feel like he was pressuring us. He took in consideration the things we needed and found us the PERFECT HOME! His response time was amazing. He was always there if we had a question. He works hard for you! We truly felt like he had our best interest at heart throughout the entire process. I would recommend Joe to anybody and everybody! If you don't choose Joe as your realtor, you're losing out.

My wife and I feel so grateful that Joe represented us as our buying agent. From the initial search through the closing on our forever home, Joe had our best interests at mind and made the entire process smooth and easy. Putting it mildly, we were not the easiest of clients to deal with. Our schedule and needs were demanding, and we had a hard time making up our minds on several places before we found our perfect home. Not once did Joe flinch through our indecision, and was always there when we had questions. Joe ended up spending so much time with us and our family, we were calling him Uncle Joe after about two months in. We witnessed throughout our home buying process that other agents gravitated and wanted to work with Joe, which is a huge testament to his personality and professionalism. Joe made himself available at all times, and was super about response time with questions and news. Joe was constantly in communication with us, and remained so through and after our close. Joe remains in touch to make sure our home buying experience was second to none. You will get nothing less if you are lucky enough to work with Joe. We can't recommend him strongly enough for any of your buying or selling needs.

We contacted Joe after a less-than-stellar run with another realtor. The market where we live can be frustrating in that the condition of many of the homes don’t match the price-tag. Joe knew what we wanted, and what we were willing to pay. We placed several offers, had some weird inspection issues that caused us to back away from a home we had under contract, and ran Joe from one side of town to another chasing leads. Throughout the entire process, Joe was very patient and upfront about what we were dealing with. Long story short, we got exactly what we wanted in a home and didn’t break the bank to get it. I highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell. He knows his stuff and shoots straight.
