I’m native to Media, Pennsylvania, and moved to Brunswick, Maine, in 1981. I’ve never looked back! I’m an enthralled, enthusiastic advocate for all the myriad advantages of life in southern midcoast Maine. I’ve skied and snowshoed her mountains; hiked her trails; swum in her rivers, lakes, and ocean; sailed her bays and harbors; kayaked her inlets and coves; and supported her vibrant arts community. Still, there is so much more for me to explore! Following a lifelong interest in real estate and the importance of homeownership to the strength, vitality, and success of prosperous communities, I became licensed in 1996. My husband and I own a small family farm on which we raise goats, guinea fowl, and chickens.
For me, each client’s needs and goals drive the process. A focus on superior customer service, communication, skill, diligence, and integrity means that much of my business comes from repeat clients and referrals from past clients! That trust is a gift and a privilege. My affiliation with RE/MAX provides me with the best technical tools, education, and professionalism in my industry. In 2016, I formed a team comprised of handpicked agents who share my philosophy and my commitment to clients. Some of us are from Maine; some of us wish we were! We have each others’ backs and, collectively, we have yours. Let us show our Maine to YOU!
I recommend Dot without reservation! She helped me to navigate an out-of-state purchase of my home in Brunswick. I could count on her to be extremely responsive and prompt- and to keep the ball rolling in my absence. She is very knowledgeable of the local market and has an above average understanding of repair and remodeling issues that may arise. Dot also has a ton of local contacts that is a big help to newcomers. I did not feel pressured to buy any homes we toured, in fact, in one case Dot advised a home I was interested in would actually require more work than I realized. Most recently, Dot helped my friends secure a rental within a week- even with multiple dogs! Dot is well known and respected among local realtors and she is a sharp cookie- you will not regret selecting her to be your realtor!
Between my parents and my wife and I, Dot has helped us buy and sell four houses over more than 20 years. She has dealt with pesky lawyers, unsophisticated sellers, and demanding buyers in all kinds of markets. This last sale was in 2014, not the bull market of today, and she supported an ask others thought “ambitious.” We ended up selling for just 3% less than asking--in two weeks. Then she helped us buy a 4-unit wreck on the same block for very little money knowing that, restored to a single family with a carriage house, it would be a great earner and great investment even just 4 years later. I have since that very first experience, recommended Dot to countless friends and neighbors. Truly a gifted and inspired realtor.
Dot Ollier is a wonderful person and truly a star at what she does! She is knowledgeable, trustworthy, hard working, highly professional, and one of the most caring people I have ever known. Not only was I downsizing significantly, I was moving out of state and was under severe pressure to meet a deadline. Dot relieved my pressure by taking over control of everything within her purview and even created a viable timetable for me to follow. I instinctively knew I could leave all financial negotiations to her as she would always have my best interests at the forefront. My only regret is that I moved away from Maine and will not be able to continue a long-term friendship with Dot. She is truly remarkable and the very best person at what she does!
Dot has been our agent for two houses, and we will absolutely use her if we sell again. She knows the area she represents very well and she is always willing to go the extra mile to get the best deal for her clients. She negociated a very delicate sale for us with a trepidatious seller and because of Dot’s judgement and patience, everything came out perfect for both sides. She’s fabulous and I would recommend her to anyone for both buying or selling a home.
I have had Dot as my realtor for both purchasing and selling property. Each time she was fully focused on my family’s needs and concerns, communicated the process clearly and achieved results above expectations.
