Why Work With Us?
Here's what our satisfied customers are saying about us:
My husband and I worked with Stefan on more than one occasion. He went out of his way to accommodate us. He was prompt returning our calls and listened to what we were looking for in a home and piece of property. We felt delighted with our success and really happy that we had Stefan’s expertise.

We started looking for a new home right in the middle of a sellers' market, when prices were high and people were making offers on-line for houses they'd never seen in person - could hardly have been a worse time. Even though we ended up looking for months and at dozens of properties, Stefan was helpful and patient through the whole process. He identified properties that fit our wish list and budget, and, just as important, steered us away from some that he was sure we wouldn't like or that might have turned out to be problematic. He gave us practical advice as well as encouragement when the search got discouraging. We're happily settled into our new home and not planning to need a realtor anytime soon, but if we did, we'd go back to Stefan in a heartbeat.

Stefan was one of the agents who helped to market and sell our house last year. We are very grateful for all his efforts. He took our listing photographs and he brought in a drone for beautiful aerial shots or the property. These wonderful photographs were a major reason buyers were attracted to our property. When our prospective buyers came to look at the house, Stefan gave them a great tour and we had an offer within 24 hours. We can’t say enough about Stefan’s professionalism, positive personality, and tremendous knowledge. Thank you Stefan!

Stefan was instrumental in helping me and my siblings sell my fathers horse farm. His knowledge of the market guided us through the rather sensitive situation, and his experience made for a very smooth real estate transaction. I would highly recommend him.

We purchased two properties with Stefan as our realtor and would not buy any property in Maine without Stefan being involved. He is honest, ethical, and straightforward. He points out issues and does not mislead or omit information. He is very knowledgeable about real estate and construction. He is unfailingly helpful and has given us advice and references on many matters. Also, he is a very nice person and is easy to work with. We can not recommend him enough. We are very satisfied customers.

I worked with Stefan while I was looking to buy a piece of property in summer 2021. He made the process smooth and efficient. Not only was Stefan extremely knowledgeable about land value, but he was also unusually prompt to return my every email, call and inquiry. He offered me solid advice when I asked and was a pleasure to work with. I had confidence and trust in our relationship and in the advice he gave. His knowledge about building processes was evident and helpful for me as a first time buyer and builder. Stefan is extremely smart, personable, and professional. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him and First Light Reality to hopeful buyers.

Stefan was a really personable and helpful buyer agent for us. He always came prepared to meetings and went over the top to answer questions and/or find answers for us, and he never made us feel sheepish for asking. He is also detail oriented and that made us feel more trusting of his opinions/advice. I mentioned to him in passing this New England tradition of planting Sugar Maples in front of farmhouses when people get married, and when we closed on our property he gave us two sugar maples. That kind of care and consideration is very remarkable to me. He is obviously thoughtful and just generally a nice guy to talk with. He made our property buying experience a pleasant and memorable one!

Stefan will go ABOVE & BEYOND to help you find and/or sell your house!!! Stefan worked with me for a year helping me to prepare my house to list. He patiently answered all my questions, advised me about which projects would help in selling my house, and saved me a lot of money, time, and anxiety that definitely paid off!!! From the time he listed my property, he had my house under contract & sold within 4 months!!! . He not only is a fantastic realtor, he’s a genuinely nice person!! His knowledge & drive to succeed in real estate include his desire to see his clients succeed in selling their property and to find the best deal in buying a house as well. I highly recommend Stefan as one of the best realtors in this area you’ll find!!!

Stefan helped me sell my house in 2020. I met Stefan when he was an EMT and liked him so well, that when I heard he had gone into real estate and I was ready to sell my house I called him. It was like working with a trusted friend. My e-mails and calls were returned in a timely manner and I never felt like he did not have MY best interest at heart. He is honest and knowledgeable. I would work with him all over again.

We have had a rough time as both buyers and sellers in the past. I was nervous about the process of purchasing our home on the Blue Hill Peninsula because of this. Luckily, I had met Stefan and new that we could trust him to be fair and informed. Throughout our search, he lent us his experience when we needed support. In the end, buying our home was a very “small town” experience where everyone knew each other and everyone’s needs were met. I recommend Stefan to everyone looking to buy or sell a home, because I know how paramount it is to be seen as an individual in such an important process.
