Why Work With Us?
Here's what our satisfied customers are saying about us:
I cannot say enough about how impressed I was with Linda's guidance through my recent purchase of land. From my very first call to the last closing signature, Linda demonstrated a level of professionalism, attention to detail, fairness, clear communication, and genuine care such as I have never seen in a realtor - I was unaware realtors like Linda, with these rare qualities, even existed! She acted exceptionally well as a dual agent between her seller and me as a buyer managing both of our interests in a deal that was complicated with many legal details. Due to my time zone difference, email was the best form of communication and Linda was always prompt to answer my questions with clear responses (often times accurately anticipating my next question or concern). All of that coupled with her warm, genuine personality made this reality experience without a doubt the best of my life.
Jamie MacNair is the realtor everyone should be fortunate enough to have on their side. Her knowledge about the local market, her tenacity in getting information and on following up on questions or key issues, and her kindness and empathy with our long search for our Maine home make her the best realtor we have ever worked with. We looked at a lot of houses with Jamie during our search and she was always honest about what she saw as positive and quick to point out things that might be issues or lead to problems down the road. As new buyers in Maine, we had a lot (a lot!) of questions; Jamie was patient and responsive, always a text or call away from an answer or a conversation to explain. She was quick to assist in all steps of the process, whether making a call to the inspection company or to the seller’s broker. In the end, though, Jamie’s professionalism and expertise was always tempered by her empathy; she got to know us well and cared deeply about making sure we got the home we really wanted. Too often, realtors are transactional – do the deal, get a commission, move on – but Jamie always put us first, and for that we can never thank her enough.

I had the best experience working with Jane Daniels when I bought my house in Blue Hill. Jane has deep insights into the area and the buy/sell process, she's very responsive and a clear communicator as she made the process smooth and helped bring back momentum when the sellers' agent went quiet.
Jane's also super personable. I've recommended her to friends looking for houses across the peninsula, and I'm so grateful to the friend who recommended her to me. Three cheers for Jane Daniels!
Just for the record, I am very pleased with having Linda represent my interests with regards to the purchase of 633 Reach Road in Sargentville. It was a bit by chance we met Linda when my brother-in-law ran into Compass Point for a booklet last Fall when we were visiting the area. We called Linda that evening and she was able to accommodate my limited availability and scheduled a showing for us the next day. She gave me realistic advice about the properties we looked at and helped me sort out potential projects by providing me with excellent contacts for contractors. I am SO happy to have found the home of my dreams through Linda at Compass Point. Everyone at the office is super nice and I never felt one bit of pressure to purchase. I would happily recommend Linda to anyone looking for a home to buy.
Jane (Daniels) was our excellent realtor who helped us from afar to buy a significant property she had listed. We were in Greece on vacation when the perfect location came on the market. Jane advised us by phone on several very technical issues, including melding a previously sub-divided property into one and navigating shoreland zoning laws that would enable us to build or renovate structures that had been in place for almost 100 years. After we closed, Jane helped us find all the right people to make it happen as it was very complicated. We could not be happier with the end result and have enjoyed many years with friends and family in this fabulous place on Blue Hill Bay. If not for Jane, we never could have done it and cannot recommend her highly enough. Besides being professionally and technically competent. Jane is a delightful and kind person who made our transaction a joy and has become a good friend besides.

Pat Dunham and the entire team at Compass Point Real Estate were essential to my home buying process. Pat walked me through the pre-qualification process and then spent countless hours questing for a house that fit all of my criteria. We found a just right spot in my budget after several outings. As a first time home buyer I was completely overwhelmed by the mountains of paperwork and the needs of a house. Pat came to the rescue with an entire list of specialists from title companies to basement remediation. She advocated for me as a home buyer and responded promptly to all of my many concerns. Compass Point Real Estate and Pat in particular have been helpful even past the closing day. When I have had unexpected problems arise with the house and reached out to Pat she has always been the first to respond with a solution. I love my house, and I adore the people at Compass Point Real Estate for making home ownership possible.
My husband and I live in San Francisco, and were recently introduced to Linda Soukup through mutual friends in Bar Harbor who know of our search for a retirement home in your area. Although we haven’t yet found our perfect retirement retreat, I thought it appropriate to write a note of praise for Linda now—she’s been a remarkable partner already.
I’ve lived in the midwest and on both coasts, and have worked with a number of realtors through my adult life. They’ve invariably served as conduits for business transactions rather than as trusted advisors—it’s always been so easy to see the dollar signs floating behind their eyes. Our experience with Linda has been wonderfully different.
From our earliest interactions I found Linda to possess an intuitive ability to understand not just what we expressed, but also the values behind our wish list. She surprised me by reading between my lines from the start, offering options that were both thoughtful and appropriate.
While shopping for real estate long distance is a supremely challenging pursuit, Linda’s energy and good-natured enthusiasm never seem to flag. She’s been so willing to spend the time to take better photos of places that seemed to have potential, serving as our eyes in early stages. And while I’ve already come to think of her as a friend, Linda does a perfect balancing act between guidance and persuasion, always diplomatically leaving us the room to make our own fully-informed decisions.
I must also add that Linda is doing her best to relieve my guilt at taking her time to gather better information about some of these badly photographed listings. Her grace and intelligence are more than I’ve come to expect in any realtor, and we feel truly grateful to have found her.

I wanted to share a brief 'review' of Linda Soukup who helped my wife and I recently in the Bar Harbor/Blue Hill area. While we ended up deciding not to pursue properties in these areas we were very appreciative of Linda's help. Linda was actually the reason we chose to explore the area, convincing us in emails of the beauty and potential of the region. When it came time to visit the properties, Linda had everything arranged and allowed us to spend ample time with the business/property owners we were considering. Linda also gave us a wonderful tour of the Blue Hill peninsula and clued us in to what the area had to offer.
Thank you - Tim
We had the great pleasure of meeting and working with Jane when we purchased our Brooksville home in 2017. Immediately, we felt at ease with her as if we were old friends. From start to finish, we could not have been happier and felt very lucky that Jane was our broker. The only down side is that we don't see her (and Jack) more often!
