Goldfinch Realty, serving the beautiful state of Maine

building a strong nest

Searching for our company’s identity and mission, Goldfinch Realty looked to its namesake for inspiration. We’ve modeled our business on the same principles necessary for building a strong nest. For birds, a strong nest is essential for thriving. An intricate braiding and blending of the smallest materials can make a home strong enough to withstand nature’s harsh elements and insulate its nestlings from the cold and rain. The three basic principles essential to Goldfinch include Connection, Durability and Warmth.


We recognize the value in building strong connections, weaving honest communication with a focus on details and facility for business. Connecting with clients is vital for establishing trust and easing any doubts or insecurities associated with managing real estate sales.


We know that adaptability and availability are key elements to success in a highly competitive market. Being there for our clients and staying ahead of market trends leads to a successful home buying process.


We believe the buying and selling of homes isn't simply a real estate transaction. Clients have to balance their wants, needs and emotions with the financial environment. Nourishing client-agent relationships warmed with empathy and understanding help this often difficult and exciting experience.

“My wife and I had the pleasure of working with Melanie during the recent sale of our home. Having not gone through the process before, we had a lot of questions, and Melanie answered them all, promptly and thoroughly. When there were decisions to be made, often we would ask her for her opinion, and she never steered us in a wrong direction. On closing day, we celebrated the process and the end result. We would heartily recommend Melanie to anyone looking for a realtor.”

“Melanie helped me find and purchase my first home. She’s absolutely fabulous! Melanie understood what I was looking for very quickly early on and only presented me with options that fit my criteria. She was very quick to respond to all of my first time buyer questions. Melanie made a process I was quite nervous about very easy and stress free!”

Chelsea. York, ME

“We recently had the privilege of working with Melanie on purchasing our first investment property. She is a dedicated real estate agent who always kept our interests in mind and diligently ensured all facets of the transaction were attended to. She was able to effectively answer all our questions, get any information that we needed, and was a pleasure to work with. Concurrently, she offered her honest opinions and never pressured us to buy properties we were not comfortable with. It’s a competitive market and Melanie knows how to navigate the complexities to her clients’ advantage. Anyone who works with her is lucky to have her on their side and we highly recommend her without reservations.”
