"Janet and I would like to take this time and really appreciated the hard work David Marshall put into getting our former home in Portland, ME at 127 Fenway Street on the market. He worked extremely hard to get the home sold for us. Dave is very knowledgeble and comes across as a straight shooter and we are thankful for his honesty. He is very hard worker and makes sure all of the T's are crossed and the I's are dotted. He kept us updated on the process and timelines we had to make and paperwork that needed to be completed in a timely fashion. Not only have we found a Realtor® we would count on again, but a friend as well. He is one of a kind. Thank you Dave for a great job well done."
