Business spotlight - Kline Realty Group - By Michelle Libby

Finding an individual or a family their perfect home, be it a first home or a home away from home, can be a challenge. The brokers at Kline Realty Group specialize in helping their clients get exactly what they want and make it look easy. 

Kline Realty Group opened its doors on February 1, but brokers Carol Kline and Debbi Webber have a combined 42 years of experience selling and purchasing real estate in the Sebago region and beyond. 

“I want to be able to offer a high level of service and have control over how my business is run,” Kline said of the new agency. “We are a boutique real estate group. We’re small with only a few agents and we’re local.” 

Kline grew up the area and went to local schools, had children who went to school here and now has four grandchildren who also attend local schools. “We’re familiar with what makes people fall in love with the Sebago Lakes region,” Kline said. Kline and Webber know about the activities and lifestyles each community has to offer be it lake living, skiing or suburbia. 

Many of her clients have been referrals or repeat clients who are ready to upsize, downsize or purchase a vacation home. 

“We’re unique. We’re not about selling someone one house. We develop a relationship so they will buy and sell with us and continue the relationship indefinitely,” said Kline. 

Kline Realty Group works primarily in a 30 mile radius from Windham concentrating on homes between Portland to Bridgton and to Fryeburg on the New Hampshire border. They list and help purchase residential homes, land, second homes, new construction packages and condominiums. The majority is residential homes, but there is a very strong secondary home market in the area, she said.
“I love selling real estate. I love helping my clients buy and sell real estate,” Kline said. She listens to what the clients are looking for and then talks to them about the uniqueness of each area they are looking at. 

“Buying or selling is emotional. It’s not just the bottom line,” Kline said. She uses her knowledge and experience to put her network of local providers and professionals to work for her clients by putting them in touch with reliable contractors or service providers. 

“The best part is finding people what they want for the family and themselves whether it’s their first or fifth home,” she said. Kline Realty Group’s experience comes into play when it comes to negotiations. They want what’s best for their clients. 

Kline and Webber are directors on the board of the Western Maine Board of Realtors. In 2010, Kline was named Realtor® of the year for Western Maine. Kline is also the director of development for Cristo Salva, a ministry of encouragement for people in Honduras and Central America. 

The Kline Realty Group is a major supporter of 150 children in a mountain village in Central America, making sure that they each get at least one meal a day. Kline has done mission work in Honduras. Kline Realty Group also supports Habitat for Humanity and Keep ME Warm heating program. 

“We believe in giving back,” Kline said. “It’s a blessing. We get much more than we give.” 

As a small business, Kline feels that they can provide better, more personal service. The agents are available 7-days a week and are in and out of their new modern office space at 940 Roosevelt Trail, Suite 10 in Windham. One of them tries to be at the office during business hours. Email inquiries and phone calls are always welcome. 

“Call us because we are your local experts in real estate who will put the client first and give them specialized service so they can feel great about making an investment in real estate,” Kline said.
Kline Realty Group has are huge presence online including a Facebook page and a Pinterest page filled with activities and things to do in the region with and without children. They use all of the technology available to market homes to the most people with professional photos. For more about Kline Realty Group, visit, email or call 207-310-8592.
