Growing up in Portland's Munjoy Hill neighborhood, I have lived most of my life in Maine. My career in real estate began in 1997 at Re/Max where I worked as a licensed assistant to Dianne Maskewitz. Dianne and I moved our business to Town and Shore Associates in 2006 and we continue to have a prolific professional partnership today.
I enjoy every facet of the real estate industry and that is evident to my clients. I have honed my skills and gained a depth of experience that continues to contribute to my success and enthusiasm for the industry each and every day. It is extremely rewarding for me to help my clients fulfill their homeownership dreams and goals. In addition to my profession I am active with several local business and networking groups.
Prior to my career in real estate, I served in the US Navy and was primarily stationed at the Navy's Top Gun Base in Oceana, Virginia. I travelled by land and sea and my years of service brought me life-long friendships and extraordinary experiences. After completing my tenure in the US Navy I returned to Maine to be closer to my family. While working full time, I attended the University of Southern Maine and graduated in 2006 with a BS in Business.
My husband and I currently reside in Portland's North Deering neighborhood surrounded by our large family and extensive network of friends and colleagues. We enjoy taking advantage of all the beauty and outdoor activities that coastal Maine has to offer!
From the moment I met Brenda Cerino her enthusiasm and vivacious personality told my head and heart that I had found the right realtor to sell our home. Brenda did everything to make it happen. Our home sold quickly and she made the whole process a joy for us. Look no further! You have the best with Brenda as your agent and friend for life!
Thanks to Brendaâ€™s hard work, dedication, and her positive attitude I was able to buy and move into a house in 30 days! I really donâ€™t know what I would have done without her! Town and Shore is luck y to have someone of her caliber working on their team!
Brenda is wonderful. She is kind and patient and does not get rattled when things do not go smoothly. She did an excellent job for me, staying on top of the details and being tirelessly available. Brendaâ€™s real estate advice and her efforts on my behalf more than met my expectations.
The whole process was executed with utmost professionalism and respect. The closing happened in less than three months which was most desirable for me and my family. Dianne and Brenda were so wonderful to work with and I will recommend them time and time again to friends and colleagues. Thanks!
Brenda was incredibly helpful with my transition (downsizing) from house to condo. She is knowledgeable in both markets and her expertise was invaluable in choosing my new condo and in selling my house. Brenda works extremely hard for her clients and lines of communication are always open (including nights and weekends). Her positive attitude makes a stressful process much easier to manage. I recommend Brenda for anyone needing a realtor!
Dianne & Brenda were an excellent team, extremely knowledgeable about the greater Portland area, and really know their business. They were extremely helpful in multiple areas as well as being easy to contact & communicate with an important skill since this was a long distance move.
