“If anyone is looking to buy or sell call Team Trask - Real Estate!! They helped us sell our home in one week, buy the house of our dreams with closing happening all in less than two months!!! They were with us every step of the way, and went above and beyond what other real estate agents have done for us in the past! Plus they are great people, so you’ll love having them around! Thank you SO much Tom and Caleigh!!”
“Cannot recommend Bill enough! He's always on top of things, and makes you feel like his only client!”
“Tom was outstanding to work with !! he helped us through a tough rehab sale. it was definitely not easy but he was on top of it and was great to work with . he always clarified every question we had and worked hard on getting us to where we needed to be to close.”
“My wife and I highly recommend working with Bill Trask without reservation. We have done two transactions with Bill and we will not work with anyone else. Bill is experienced, professional and knowledgeable. We feel his superior communication skills truly set him apart from other agents. We can email, call, or text any time day or night and Bill will respond immediately. Even though Bill has many deals going on, he makes us feel like we are his only clients.”

We immediately liked Caleigh when we met her last fall, and we were excited to discover she was a real estate agent because we were about to start looking for our first house! She set us up with an online client portal so we could browse the market at our leisure until the timing was right to start visiting the strong contenders. We had so many questions about the entire process of buying a house before we even started and Caleigh was always so quick to answer our texts and emails.
During our home search, we had some very specific questions come up and when Caleigh didn't know the answer off hand, she knew where to find it by calling on personal contacts or calling the city for us. All these little things we thought we'd have to research ourselves, she took care of for us!
Because we were living in another state at the time, Caleigh fit in several houses in a row for us to see on weekends when we could drive up to look. On only the fifth house we saw, we knew it was the one! Caleigh helped us formulate a strong offer that we were comfortable with and it was chosen above several other offers!
When she had a family emergency the day of our home inspection, her husband Tom jumped in and spent the whole inspection at the house with us, helping us understand the inspection findings, and even helping us find potential and inspiration in our unfinished basement!
The back and forth communication needed to complete the process was done by phone, email, text and electronic document signing, which meant we were able to do every step in a timely manner and without having to make a 2.5 hour drive just to sign papers (other than the final closing day, of course)! Both Caleigh and Tom went above and beyond to make sure we were treated fairly by the seller and that everything was in place to wrap up by our original closing date.
And talk about above and beyond, when we had to bring our kids to closing with us, Caleigh colored with our 4-year-old and walked the halls with our 1-year-old so that we could focus on signing papers. She really does it all!
We can't imagine having gone through this important process with anyone except Caleigh (& Tom!). They make a terrific team, with the perfect balance of approachability and professionalism. They helped us find a great house for a great price in a great neighborhood to raise our boys and we are forever grateful!”
“Bill Trask is an exceptional buyer broker! He is very knowledgeable, responsive, reliable, professional, but most of all, he is always good-natured, morally and ethically grounded and has exceptional character. He went above and beyond to makes sure the transaction was met with the same expectations that he would want, if he were the buyer, and then some. His service and support truly helped make an otherwise complex and chaotic transaction seem like a walk in the park and made buying a house, fun and exciting!”
“With lightening speed, Tom got our land on the market and was always available with sound advice and guidance through the sales process. We were happy to have him on the job!”
“Bill helped my husband and I sell our older farmhouse in Limerick, Maine. He was there ever step of the way guiding us. He helped us sell our last house too almost 20 years ago! We’d recommend Bill if you want to sell and or buy your next house! He won’t let you down! He will go above and beyond for you! He’s awesome!”
“Team Trask is such a great group to work with!! They are extremely responsive to their clients and business partners and do everything they can to help a transaction go smoothly. I would HIGHLY recommend working with them if you are considering buying or selling your home. You will NOT be disappointed!”
“Bill took care of every detail and managed all the loose ends. He actually had my place sold before we could even list it. I wasn't able to attend the closing due to a family emergency and he took care of that as well. Excellent experience and I highly recommend him!”

“Tom is a great realtor - knows his stuff and go above and beyond in helping walk buyers through the various (sometimes complicated) steps of buying a home!”
“Bill was the best! We were interested in purchasing a home and Bill had us under contract to sell our current home in just over a week! He went above and beyond providing boxes, tape, and helping out when we were under pressure to get our well water retested. He was with us every step of the way and very responsive to my many questions sent via text message. I would highly recommend Bill Trask to help you in your next real estate transaction.”
“Tom was a great agent to work with. He led us through the home buying process with confidence and great skill. He took the take them explain the process thoroughly (we were first time buyers) and then immediately got to work finding us our home. He was incredibly responsive, positive, and organized. He balances listening carefully and offering thoughtful opinions. The process was very smooth in an incredibly tight market because Tom was on top of his game. Beyond all this, he's also just a fun, kind guy we enjoyed being around. I would recommend Tom without any hesitation. We are happily settled in our new home!”
“Bill was awesome with every aspect of the home selling and buying process. My husband and I knew when we started the process of selling our old home and buying a new home it be a challenge to try and accomplish both at the same time but Bill was able to make it happen! And when there was a problem with our potential buyers new loan Bill was right there keeping us informed and putting together a back up plan just in case things didn't work out. We would HIGHLY recommend Bill to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. Thanks again Bill for everything!”
“Tom Trask helped me with a recent real estate transaction. What impressed me most about Tom was his attention to detail, his ability to convey the process in a simple, concise and complete manner. He's pleasant, professional and very knowledgeable. I look forward to future interactions with Tom as my realtor. Thanks, Tom!”
“Bill Trask has been our realtor and friend for over 20 years, and I can tell you he is both knowledgable and dedicated when it comes to helping you sell or buy your home. Bill has gone above and beyond for us time and time again, I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone and everyone!!”

“I have nothing but great things to say about Team Trask. We bought our first home this year and Team Trask walked us through every step. We could call or text with any questions and they went out of there way to make sure we understood every step and always kept us updated. We are so very happy with the service and personal touches along the way. Team Trask made buying very easy and stress free. I will be sending all friends or anyone looking to buy a home to Team Trask! Thanks guys!”
“It was awesome working with Tom! He went above and beyond to keep us informed of all we needed to know through the entire process of searching for and purchasing our new home. He helped us find a home quickly at a tough time to buy. Tom and his team went far and above my expectations!”

“Fantastic experience! Tom was very knowledgeable and offered a great deal of insight. He listened to us and understood exactly what we were looking for, which resulted in the perfect home for us! We had to sell our home in order to buy and he was very helpful in keeping that difficult process manageable.”
“Tom is an awesome realtor. He was exceptionally helpful when walking through homes as he has a very good understanding of the systems and structural components of residential buildings and properties. As this was my first home purchase, I was more than a little high maintenance; asking tons of questions and reviewing all the small print. Tom was fully responsive, patient and provided great guidance throughout the process. Every contractor or service provider that he recommended or contacted during the process was phenomenal. From inspectors, lenders, electricians, they all were very efficient, responsive and more than fairly priced. We went from offer to closing in less than 30 days with great terms and he nailed the price point day one. I'm fairly certain that if I called him to help with my move, he and Caleigh would show up within the hour. Tom treated the entire process as though he was buying the house for his own family. I'm not sure what else you would want in a realtor but from my perspective, Tom is the very best greater Portland has to offer.”
“Tom has worked with my husband and I in our search to find a home, and he is extremely professional and accommodating. Although our circumstances changed and we had to give up our search for the time being, he's our go to for excellent service and we'd highly recommend him!”
Steven & Katie
“My wife and I chose Tom for our first home buying experience. He came across as someone who held the interests of the client as his first priority and someone we could trust. Our experience with Tom only strengthened that impression. He worked for us, utilizing necessary resources to get exactly what we wanted and expected. His hardworking nature is certainly complimented by his reliability and approachability, being available to us at any time of any day. He was our biggest asset throughout a difficult process and has stayed in touch with us afterwards to ensure we are satisfied. I will continue to work with Tom in the future and would recommend him to anyone! Thanks Tom!”
“Bill was very good to work with and I would recommend him for anyone looking to buy, sell, or build. He showed me a couple of homes. I asked if I had a limit on how many he would show. He said 50 jokingly but I decided to build new. Very responsive and dedicated. He even called while he was on vacation out of state. Checked in with me periodically to get updated. He stayed on top of dates sensitive to a purchase and sale as well as the contractor assuming my agreement. Attended the preliminary meeting with the contractor and came to the final walk through. Whatever needed to be done I could count on Bill to take care of it. He made sure the process went as smoothly as possible ensuring I was pleased with my new home. He will do right by you I'll attest to that you can't go wrong with Bill at the helm. “

“Tom Trask recently helped my girlfriend and I closed on our first investment property in Portland. Tom is a very knowledgeable, responsive, and someone who cares about his clients interest – all qualities that you look for in a good broker. I don’t think there was an email/call/text regardless of the time of day or night that Tom did not respond within minutes on. He has a very even keeled approach. He and I have our differences in our opinions regarding negotiations but he stood his ground because he believed that his advice was in my best interest. Although at times I did not like what I heard I ultimately respected him more for it. Some brokers are just “yes man/woman” in order to close the sale and I know that Tom is not one of them. I would recommend him to friends and family for sure!”
“Word is you're a rockstar. Got your card in the mail - really appreciate it (you were an easy referral). Thanks for helping my brother and his family.”
“Tom did a wonderful job helping us buy our "forever home". He took the time to really understand what we were looking for and assist in narrowing our search so we could focus on properties that were best suited to our needs. He was very attentive and always made us feel that we were his priority. He was extremely thorough during the entire process and went above and beyond, even calling around for oil tank estimates when the sellers were having trouble getting it replaced in time for closing. We loved working with Tom and would recommend him wholeheartedly.”
“Tom was top notch selling our condo in Back Cove Estates. From the minute I contacted him he was going full speed - working to sell our place fast and for top market value. The pricing strategy was perfect and we were under contract in 2 days. My wife and I found Tom to be very driven, responsive, hard working, and enjoyable to work with. We would not hesitate to recommend Tom to all our family and friends.”

“Tom was instrumental in making our home buying purchase as simple as possible. He went above and beyond, and came prepared with answers to every single question imaginable. He was two steps ahead every time any bump in the road came along, and provided us with with multiple options for every decision we needed to make. Tom put the time in to make it feel as though we were his top priority, being available at all times. If we could give Tom and Caleigh 6 stars, we would”
