Business spotlight – By Michelle Libby for the Windham Eagle

Landing Real Estate has been a fixture in the real estate market in Windham and Raymond for the last four years and now they are opening a new office at 79 Tandberg Trail, just in time for the holidays. With 16 agents and owners Matt and Lisa DiBiase, Landing Real Estate is on the cutting edge when it comes to buying and selling real estate.

The original office for Landing Real Estate is on Exchange Street in Portland, but with demand increasing in the fast growing Windham market, Landing felt having an office in Windham would be beneficial.

“We do a lot of business out here,” said owner/broker Matt DiBiase, who grew up in Windham.

Matt began his career in real estate in 2003. His stepfather owned a company in the eighties and nineties, so real estate was a natural career choice for him.

“I enjoy the transactions and putting the deals together. I like being at the closing table for someone buying their dream home or selling a property they never thought would sell. I’m always up for a challenge,” Matt said. “Landing trains agents to be aggressive and proactive in the marketplace. We actively go out to put deals together for our buyers and sellers.”

All of the agents at Landing are independent contractors. They come to Landing for the training and coaching that are offered. Many real estate offices hire someone give them a desk and expect them to get out there, Matt said. At Landing, “We use a team model. Even though everyone is independent, we help them grow,” said Matt. “I enjoy having all the agents working together in our fun, family atmosphere.”

The Landing marketing plan is the key to their success, according to Matt. With the proactive marketing they do with Time4Printing, they keep their name in front of sellers and buyers. “We go above and beyond with our marketing,” Matt said. “We help the people that didn’t think they could sell. I feel I’ve worked very hard to get where I am in my business. I’m very aggressive and active with my marketing.”

Landing Real Estate works with properties in central and southern Maine, as the company grows, they will continue to expand. Using a local independent company provides clients with personal attention they want with the same exposure they might get from a national company. “We can do all the same services,” said Matt. “We can be more creative with marketing and more fun.”

The agents are always available and have phones with them at all times. They communicate late in the day or on weekends, if needed. “We’re here to help them feel comfortable through the process,” Matt said. Making a purchase that is likely the biggest expense a person, couple or family will incur, Landing agents want it to be a positive experience for all involved through the negotiating process and inspections.

The market is low on inventory. “It is absolutely a seller’s market,” Matt said. There are a lot of out of state buyers, and Matt sees that trend continuing into next year.

Landing handles a lot of every kind of residential real estate from waterfront and investment properties to existing homes and building packages.

Matt and Lisa consider their agents like their second family. They are hiring people to add to their team in Windham.
