"The Van That Moves Real Estate"

I have lived in Maine all my life and believe there is no better place to live, raise a family, retire or vacation.  I reside in Falmouth and enjoy the area's renowned schools, coastline, fine dining, entertainment and unparalleled four-season outdoor recreational activities.  I am an avid boater, fisherman, hiker and downhill skier.

I bring my passion for Maine to my role as a Realtor.  With over 12 years of experience in customer service, I help make moving real estate easy and enjoyable.  I pride myself on providing client-centered, high-quality service that results from honesty, integrity and hard work, but above all from listening and understanding exactly what each client seeks.

In the community I am a sponsor of Easter Seals Maine.  Easter Seals Maine provides services to improve the lives of disable children and veterans.

I specialize in residential, second homes, waterfront, new construction, land and multi-units.

Ratings & Reviews

Van worked with me for 6 months to find my perfect home in Maine. He approaches each potential property as if he was buying it for himself. He is quick to point out things to consider with each property's pros and cons. Van is diligent with communications and information relating to each house I was interested in. I have to commend him for his consistent services throughout the six month search. He was always quick to supply me with new properties that fit my ever changing criteria and also focused on my needs as they changed throughout the search. I highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a home to buy or sell. He found me the most perfect home, that I still can't believe I get to live in! What an awesome and professional guy!

Bought a Single Family home in 2009 in Falmouth, ME.

Van helped us purchase land in Falmouth in 2009. He worked with my family for 3 years while we scoured the landscape for the perfect lot that was also in our price range. It took a while for the right property to present itself, but Van was always on top of listings and very prompt in sending us the latest offerings and showing us the positive and negative aspects of each lot to help us determine the best fit for our building needs. With his help we finally purchased our ideal building lot for a great price (a little less than what we expected to pay!). The best part of his support was that he recommended a new survey of the lot, after we purchased it, that revealed we had TWO building lots, not one! That allowed us to sell off one lot and put the proceeds toward the building of our new home. This was a tremendous help to us that we never would have realized on our own. He even hooked us up with a high-quality, well-priced builder who built our new home. Can't say enough about Van's perseverance and support, his knowledge of the Falmouth area, and his commitment to his clients in getting them the very best deal. We HIGHLY recommend him. Thank you, Van!  More Less

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 in Kennebunkport, ME.

We worked with Van for about two years before buying a home in Kennebunkport. Van went beyond the normal call of duty on numerous occasions to drive us around southern Maine to help us get a feel for different areas and neighborhoods. I can only make a judgement on Van based on our particular experience, and in fairness to Van I don't think we were ideal clients. We didn't know what area we were interested in other than "between Brunswick, Maine and Portsmouth, N.H." And we didn't even know for sure whether or not we would re-locate to Maine from N.J. In these circumstances Van was the perfect real estate agent for us. He never oversold a property, and never ended a viewing by perhaps taking the more easy way out, IE. reviewing the positive points of a listing. His education and background experience is engineering, and he used these skills to quickly and thoroughly review the bones of a house. He tended to size up a listing as if he were the buyer, and this was an approach that my wife and I particularly appreciated. He would note, for example, points such as " the seal is broken, or that is a crack that concerns me, or appliances are nearing replacement age". And always there were comments on the quality and efficiency of the heating system. I left the rating on Local Knowledge blank, because I am not sure exactly what the question is. For example he is extremely knowledgeable on Maine issues ("waterways are all public"). His home office is Windham, and I don't know if his local knowledge of, say, Kennebunkport is below average, average, or above average when compared to real estate agents who are based in Kennebunkport. How would anyone know? I rated negotiating skills four star and I would like to comment further in this. Van reviewed closed sale comps and came up with a range for our target house, and recommended that we start our bid at the bottom of that range. However due to a variety of concerns we came in at a lower bid and ended up closing at a price that was under his recommended initial offer. A buyer doesn't expect his agent to know all the pressures and circumstances on a seller, and from time to time a low offer may work. We were surprised that our offer resulted in a sale, but this only worked because we were fully prepared to walk away from this property unless we could get it at our price. Van was fully supportive of this strategy. And after the purchase contract was signed he provided all advice necessary to ensure a smooth closing, including recommending a local mortgage lender who he knew could respond within a short closing window. Summary: We were very happy with Van and would recommend him without hesitation. He was the perfect agent for us.  More Less
