Rick Yost is dedicated to his clients needs and happiness.

He was always available, nights and weekends to answer questions and was always searching for new listings. Most importantly he did not pressure us to view any properties that was beyond our price range. He is quick to respond for viewing requests and can schedule multiple viewings in one day. Rick was in constant contact with us on the fast moving real estate market. I would call Rick for any further real estate needs in the future, he would be my only choice. Rick Yost was not only our real estate agent but, he is now our friend.

Joe DeCesere (Commercial Driver)

Rick helped me and my husband purchase our first home and we couldn't have been happier with our experience.

He was knowledgeable, communication was incredibly easy and we always felt like a top priority.

Catherine Hatchett (homebuyer)

We met Rick by chance through Zillow.

com. It didn't take long to realize that he would be a true advocate for us on our buy/sell mission. As first-time sellers, there were more moving parts for us to worry about. Rick was incredibly patient with us as we moved from discussing to closing. He marketed our existing home with an aggressive plan, including showings and an open house. Above all, Rick was open, honest, and upfront with us whenever we had a topic to cover. Even though I know Rick had other, bigger real estate clients he was representing, he ALWAYS made us feel like we were his most important customers. He was 100% responsive, even with our difficult work schedules and non-standard hours. Bottom line: We were crunched for time and tight on money. Rick ensured that our sale and purchase went off without any problems. He also went above and beyond the call of duty after the transactions were complete with a housewarming and holiday gift. Rick has our utmost thanks and appreciation for all that he did to get us into our new home.

Antonio Ridge (Buyer/seller)

Rick was great to work with in the recent sale of our home.

He was knowledgeable of the market in our area. Rick was patient with us while we took our time to sell when we were fully ready. We never felt pushed or rushed from Rick. He was supportive and flexible to our needs. I would HIGHLY recommend Rick and would be more than happy to work with him again!

Working with Richard Yost was an absolute pleasure!

As first time homebuyers my husband and I had lots of questions, and were often lost going into every part of the process. Rick always answered our questions thoroughly and promptly and really helped us understand things. He truly had our best interest at heart and goes above and beyond! I would highly recommend him for anyone looking to buy or sell!

Emily Dusseault

Rick is an incredible and dedicated realtor!

We had been looking for a specific lake front home for about a year and Rick assisted us all along the way. Once we found a home with the potential we had been looking for, Rick got our home at the time sold so fast! We then had many delays in the purchase of the new home due to the renovation needed and Rick worked closely with the seller's realtor to ensure we would not lose our purchase. It took about two and a half months and Rick worked very hard for us not to lose out on this home and we can't thank him enough! We are now closed and underway with our renovation!!

Rick made my first home sale a breeze.

He didn’t waste any time listing the home and within a month the home was under contract. Rick is a great communicator and will do whatever it takes to make selling your home quick and stress-free. I highly recommend his expertise if you are thinking about selling your home!

Ryan Soellamn

A few years ago, Rick assisted us in finding our first home.

He was extremely patient with us as we navigated the market, and helped us to find a home that fit all of our needs. When the time came to sell that home, he was the first person that came to mind. He walked us through every step of the selling process, and helped us to identify the best offer in this crazy market. He's now assisting us in creating our next dream home - serving as our advocate, and often a voice of reason. In each interaction, Rick shares a genuine interest in our success as homeowners, and is truly a pleasure to work with. We look forward to working with him for each of our future transactions.

Amanda Nowinski

Rick Yost was such a pleasure!

!! Rick has a long history in this area and has a thorough understanding of the market. We depended upon him for insight on what to look for, and what to look out for. He made the process easy by connecting us with the lender and getting inspections and appraisals done and also recommended great contractors to assist with improvement projects. Great communication through the entire process. Quick and painless. Totally trustworthy, professional and friendly guy!

Sam Ryan


Rick Yost just recently assisted me with selling a property in Portland, Maine. This is the second property Mr. Yost has sold on my behalf over the past four years. During this time I have watched him carefully and methodically ensure that my properties received the best possible exposure, best legal paper work and most importantly the best price! When it was time for negotiations, paper work and dealing with closing companies and banks Rick ensured all aspects moved forward in a timely fashion. Rick has a very clear and deep understanding of all aspects of real estate law and maintains a strong, positive relationship with the companies that service the real estate market. I am completely satisfied with all of Rick’s diligence and appreciate his professional attitude and work ethic. I felt very fortunate for Rick’s expertise and experience guiding the sale of both properties! I confidently recommend Rick 100% and will absolutely look to his excellent skill set whether I buy or sell property again!

JanWillem musters (Home owner)

Rick has helped us many times over the years, most recently he helped us sell a home in a very challenging market, with his experience and listing strategies, we had multiple offers within the first week and he helped us dig down and root out the very best all around offer.

We are currently working with Rick to find another property, he listens to your needs, is VERY responsive and you don't waste your time looking at properties that don't fit your needs. I will continue to use Rick and you should too !

william desmond (self employed)

Rick was an excellent realtor for my fiancé and I.

He knew the market very well and made our offers competitive as possible. He also was great in explaining things throughout our first home buying experience.

Jake Richards (Critical Care RN)

Rick has recently handled several real estate transactions for myself and my family, both as buyers and sellers.

He has been a complete professional, He has brought qualified buyers to the table quickly, located new properties for us to acquire and has provided solid guidance and advice through every transaction. He truly listened to what we wanted and found a way to accomplish our goals.

Thomas Blakeney (President CCM)

Rick was a fantastic agent for us.

He truly cared about making sure we were getting a good deal, a good home, and was always available and very responsive along the entire process (even answering our questions at 9pm). I would recommend Rick to anyone looking to buy a home in the Windham area - he makes going through the buying process much less painful with his professionalism and clear expertise.

Evangeline Jerome

He did a great job getting us a house that was near our son and his family, had a pool, enough land, and there was no worry that he would do so.

He has always been fair, knew the market, did honest work for us finding a house we wanted. I highly recommend him for anyone in the area. He knows how to get the deal done in this competitive market with very low inventory. He is also very likeable, answers all questions promptly and accurately. Thanks Rick!!

Douglass Powell

Rick did a fantastic job selling my house in Standish, ME.

He priced the property such that it generated several offers. The offer accepted was $25K (7%) above the asking price. There was a title issue from when I purchased the property in 2017. Rick sorted it out quickly and completely, so that the closing was not delayed. Rick is very professional, knowledgeable, upbeat and responsive. Every time I reached out to Rick with a question or concern, he got back to me ASAP. I cannot say enough good things about Rick Yost. If you choose Rick to help you sell or buy a property, you will not be disappointed.

Daniel McAuliffe

Thank you Rick for making selling our home a little bit easier.

I have bought and sold homes in the past, my sale with Rick was by far the smoothest thanks to his patience, understanding and expertise. I highly recommend Rick to anyone looking to have an experienced and down to earth broker who will make the process easier for you and take as much of the process off your plate as possible. Thanks again Rick!

Julie Cervone

I highly recommend Rick Yost.

In an extremely tight market, his strategic negotiation skills were instrumental in having my offer accepted on a very competitive, waterfront home on Sebago Lake. Not only does Rick possess extensive knowledge of the surrounding area, his holistic approach to evaluating the value and potential of any given property gave me immediate confidence in his services. After working with him for several months, his level of engagement, superior customer service, and thoughtful perspective led to trust quickly being established in the relationship. Overall, I really enjoyed working with Rick and feel quite fortunate that he represented me and my family during this process.

Ryan B.

Rick was awesome to work with really flexible and accommodating, anytime we wanted to look at a house he made it happen!

! He helped us find our perfect forever home. Can’t thank him enough.

Rachel Garrett

I wouldn't have been able to relocate from Wisconsin to Maine in the middle of a pandemic and maintain my sanity if it weren't for Rick.

His knowledge and expertise was evident throughout the entire process, and everything under his control went smoothly. I can't provide a higher recommendation for this outstanding real estate professional.

Albert Abena

I would highly recommend Rick Yost as a realtor.

He was very proactive and had our best interests at heart. He was always on time and worked really hard to arrange showings around our crazy schedules. We were not easy clients but he found us the perfect house with the ultimate garage.

Martha Decesere (client)

We recommend Rick unequivocally!

We feel very fortunate to have had Rick Yost as our agent. He is very patient and friendly and helped us feel reassured about the decisions we were making. His tremendous RE knowledge and specific knowledge of the town, neighborhood and home that we were considering was always very helpful. He is always responsive and very accommodating as far as scheduling or attending open houses, property visits and related enquiries that we may have had. Even after close of escrow he has offered to help us and remain in contact in case questions arise. Thank you Rick!

James & Leslie Keshishian (New Home Owners)

Rick was able to sell my fourth house without any added stress to me and my family.

He negotiated a great price which made myself and the buyers comfortable with the transaction and no uncertainty along the way. If you need a solid negotiator with realistic market knowledge, Rick is the person to assist in selling your home. Don’t let other agents inflate the price of your home just to earn your business, choose Rick to get the job done right!

Kimberlee McCusker (Federal Government Account Manager)

Rick did a great job helping us quickly and efficiently sell our house.

He was a very responsive communicator and had our personal goals in mind during the process. I have worked with him twice now and things went smoothly both times.

Professional and personable, Rick made the sale of our home easier than we could have imagined.

We highly recommend Rick if you are looking for a realtor to help you sell your home.

Susan Dionne

I reached out to Rick after a less than desireable interaction with another firm.

Right from the start, Rick was engaged, reassuring, knowledgeable and the communication was spot on. This transaction was a little more tricky because we were out of state. Rick quickly and professionally handled a few small issues on our behalf to keep the transaction moving along. Thank you Rick! I highly recommend!

Donna Beaudry (Homeowner)

"We are so thankful to have met Rick! We stumbled upon him on realtor and right away he was so professional, helpful, and responsive. We searched with him for about ten months! Rick was patient with us and always went above and beyond to help us feel comfortable throughout the entire process. After much searching, Rick helped us find a house that finally felt like “home.” Rick is very knowledgeable about the Southern/Central Maine area and the market in general. He helped us find a house at a GREAT price! I couldn’t recommend him more."

Rick was able to help us find the perfect first home and connected us with professionals in the area who could help as we complete updates.

"I began my search for a new home about a year and a half ago and I used a realtor that was not very aggressive or positive about the search. I finally gave up on him and was recommended Rick by a work colleague. Rick is very professional and a straight shooter. He worked with us day and night to find the home we wanted and his responsiveness/positive attitude was just what we were looking for. He only ended up showing us a couple of houses before we found what we wanted and was able to get the deal done for us. He is very knowledgeable and well known in the realty community."
