?????process could not have been better! THANKS Rick!

Kelly Mannette

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 was excellent as both the broker selling my condo and helping me navigate the process to purchase my new one.

He always answered questions quickly, informed me of what was going on and kept me informed each step of the way. I would highly recommend Rick as your broker.

Beth Fox

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)

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

Rick has a wealth of information, and an expertise that made buying our first home easy and stress free.

What we appreciated the most from our experience was that we knew what to expect during the process, and that we always had reminders of what to be looking out for in the coming weeks. Rick is a straight shooter, and there was never any issue with us bringing our baby, Rick would even offer to entertain of hold the baby if we needed him to while we were looking around or signing the paperwork. A family centered man is a trustworthy man, and we got no less from Rick.

Christopher Priest

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!!

Marie Jacobs (Homeowner)

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.

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)

If you need a realtor, you should hire Rick.

He helped us with both the sale of our house and the purchase of another. He was very professional and knowledgeable throughout the process of selling. He was also relentless in the pursuit of another home for us. He never made us feel like we were asking too much of him (even though I'm sure we did). I thought the process was going to be very difficult, after living in the same home for 24 years, but Rick made it easier. Rick also assisted us in finding other professionals to help us with the other tasks associated with the purchase and sale of a house, including, mortgage brokers, home inspectors and others. His knowledge and guidance was unmatched. I would recommend that if you need help with the purchase or sale of your house you should consider Rick as the guy to go to!

Joseph Goodman

Rick has completed both a purchase and a sale for us in Maine.

We were very pleased with all aspects of his services including cost on both transactions. Rick is our go to guy when we need to buy or sell real estate in Maine.

David McLaughlin

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!

Jillian V

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)

We enjoyed Working with Rick as he was alot of fun to work with as well as easy going.

He also provided a lot of knowledge as a broker and listen to what we wanted in a home. I would recommend Rick 100%.

Kathy Pepin

Rick was professional , helpful and patient throughout the process.

he listened to my Daughters wants and needs and together we found a really nice first home for her. My wife and I were grateful for Ricks guidance and knowledge of the local market, his negotiating skills help our Daughter save a bunch of money on the closing costs. I would recommend Rick for you next sale or purchase and we plan to use him again in the future.

Dewey Bunker (National Sales Manager Import)

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 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

Rick did a great job finding our dream home in a great community.

My family and I are very grateful and we will keep his contact info. He helped us find a financing bank. It took us about 2 months to find our home in this crazy housing market. Rick was flexible and response to texts, emails and calls quickly. He is a very experience agent and a nice guy. I recommend him to anybody. thanks Rick



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)

We got really lucky.

New to the lakes region, I selected Rick based on online reviews. He is a real pro! And great to work with. Not sure this deal would have gotten done without his experience. Highly recommended!

Richard Stathers

Rick was able to help us purchase our dream home.

Kristen D

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)

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.

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.

"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."
