Here's what our satisfied customers are saying about us:

“We could not have asked for a better experience. We had limited time to view the property. Jeff was very responsive despite being away on a family getaway at the the time we were available. He has a deep understanding of the market and the ability to get the job done well for both parties.  Thanks, Jeff.”

Keeping me well informed, updated and always available. Knowledgeable about staging, knowledgeable about what the seller wanted. Bottom line. SOLD.

We have purchased property throughout the USA along with many properties in down East Maine. Jeffrey and Tina Allen are the ultimate pros. We had the pleasure of actually purchasing and selling the same property with them to experience both ends of the transaction. In the purchase the negotiations  We’re honest and direct and well calculated making the process from start to finish very easy. On the sale of the property just recently the market study and analysis for list pricing was very comprehensive and right on. The staging of the home and the marketing to follow was superb. Not to mention the honesty with dealing with other brokers Over the years brought the reputation that other companies tend to trust. The ultimate outcome was our property went under contract in less than two weeks and closed within 60 days. In a nutshell I would highly recommend calling down his properties and you can Develop your own opinion on Jeff and Tina Allen. Kudos to Downeast Properties!

In my opinion, Tina Allen is a very professional sales agent. I found her to be reliable, honest and trustworthy. She took excellent care  of our home. She had many showings and was very informative afterward. I would certainly recommend her to sell anyone's property. 


Jeff Allen went over and above helping me sell my house.  I found him to be intelligent,  personable and easy to work with, and very generous with his time and depth of knowledge.  All questions and concerns were answered in a timely manner and no detail was too small.  He helped me get full value for my property at a difficult time.  I highly recommend Jeff and Downeast Properties for facilitating either the sale or purchase of both residential and commercial real estate.

My wife and I were not experienced with buying land and Annie helped us immensely. She took us to all of the lots we were interested in (including some that were difficult to find). At the properties without hesitation she bushwacked through the brush with us to find shoreline, pointed out  problematic geographicfeatures like tributary streams and was generally just very knowledgeable about local building regulations. When it came time to negotiate Annie helped us get our offer accepted at 20% below asking. She was an invaluable resource during our due diligence period (recommending the best soil test expert in the region, giving advice on how to approach local authorities with best foot forward etc.). I cannot recommend Annie enough, throughout the process she always put our needs first.


Gina Sensontic has helped us every Fall for the past three years looking for that ideally suitable family retreat in the Stonington, Deer Isle, Brooklin, Sedgwick area.  We knew what we needed and what would work for our family.  We spent several days on each of our past 3 years’ vacation house hunting with Gina. Before we knew Gina, we had initially worked the previous Fall with another agency’s realtor.  When an offer through them was unsuccessful, they were not interested in working with us the following Fall.  Then we met Gina Sensontic.  She pursued our quest when others didn’t take us seriously. We agree that finalizing our purchase was made possible because of Gina.  For a variety of reasons, our closing was complicated and had several delays and extensions.  Gina handled our interest with great poise and professionalism.  Being out of state buyers, Gina also helped us adjust to the Maine protocols, both before and beyond our sale.


If you are looking for a realtor with patience and willingness to keep working, call Gina Sensontic for finding your next home!

I was very fortunate to work with Annie Allen. Her commitment to the process and to me as her client was very evident; she responded in a prompt manner to my questions and emails, and she checked in with me to see how the process was going for me, and it seemed that her work was really important to her. Her positivity along the way was a huge bonus in what would otherwise have been a more challenging process for me, since it was the first time that I had bought real estate! Thanks Annie.



On our anniversary this year we went and looked at a house in Blue Hill. We had been searching for the right house for a bit, and we finally found it! We’re happy to say we’re under contract! Thank you to Tina for all your help!
