Why Work With Us?
Here's what our satisfied customers are saying about us:
My husband and I knew we wanted to buy property near Mt. Desert Island where we could eventually retire from our current California location, but we knew very little about the area. We felt lucky to be referred to Linda Soukup by mutual friends—her calm demeanor, kindness and attention to client needs above her own won us over quickly.
For us, buying this property was about more than architecture, location and lot size (yet we had plenty of preferences in those areas). We also needed to sense the local culture, and to judge whether we could be happy with such a big lifestyle transition.
Nearly all of our 18-month search occurred virtually. The combination of our opposite coast location and COVID constraints put an extraordinary burden on Linda, as she used her sixth sense to see properties through our eyes, and to judge whether they might work for us. On several occasions, she gave us comprehensive property tours using Facetime on her smart phone—a challenge I would never have believed could work.
We joked about Linda being our Real Estate Therapist, but in truth, she did a masterful job of reading between our lines and hearing not just what we said, but what we meant on deeper levels. Her patience and determination were critical components in the recent purchase of our dream property… without even once having seen it in person. Linda’s tireless efforts allowed us to understand the property and to sense the spaces. She was an amazing partner for us.

I called Linda when I saw her listing for a house in Blue Hill that caught my eye. My husband and I had hoped to purchase a second home along the coast of Maine for some time. When I called Linda from out of state she was very honest and open about the property, making sure we were fully aware of any issues with the house before driving the 6 hours to view it in person. This was very much appreciated. She even forwarded a wonderful video of the property for us to watch prior to our visit. Throughout the process of then buying the home, there were some unexpected twists and turns, but Linda handled all with ease, professionalism and great care. We would work with Linda again any time and highly recommend her services to anyone in need of a realtor in the Blue Hill area. She is truly awesome!

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 listed my home in Blue Hill, Maine with Jane Daniels of Compass Point Realty in late October 2018. The sale was completed satisfactorily in June 2019. From the very beginning Jane was the perfect selling partner; accessible, friendly, energetic, and focused on my sale. She patiently guided me through the process of what I needed to do, like getting a home inspection, water and radon testing, and gave her suggestions on what I might do make the property more attractive to potential buyers.
I highly recommend Jane Daniels to anyone wishing to buy or sell real estate in the Blue Hill area. She made the selling process easy!
As a former buyer with Compass Point , Pat Dunham helped us find and pursue a complicated purchase of property on
the Blue Hill Peninsula .
Over several months she provided us with expert local knowledge and a smooth demeanor. She made multiple offers and then followed through with an exceptional closing, that allowed us to save thousands of dollars.
Whether you are buying or selling, we Strongly recommend engaging Pat Dunham as your exclusive agent !

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.
We were expertly represented when buying our dream home in Maine by Sandra Nahorn Silver! Even though out of state we had no worries as she handled every bump in the road and represented our interests 110%!
Highly recommend her and Compass Point!
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!
Linda Soukup just happened to be the agent on duty when we called Compass Point to look at properties. And how lucky we were that she was! She asked all the right questions to find out what we most wanted in a summer home, found and delivered every potential listing that met our criteria—and none that didn’t—and made sure she was available for us every time we needed her. She took time showing us many features of the area with which we were unfamiliar and helped connect us with professionals of all kinds to make the sale go through. She was thoroughly professional but not overbearing, helpful but not intrusive, delightful and a pleasure to work with. She helped us buy the perfect house.
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.
