Vicki and her husband, Ed, moved from Boston in 1986 to open Blackberry Inn in Camden (still a thriving B&B under different ownership) and raise their three children. Personable and gregarious, it didn’t take long before she became heavily involved in the community.
When Vicki became a broker in 2003, she was already well-versed in helping people settle into their ideal version of the Maine way of life. After all, she literally wrote the book on successfully relocating to this special part of the world. In 2000, the first edition of Moving to Maine was published, and it’s been a tremendous resource for anyone looking to make a move here ever since, through many editions.
Vicki has served on the boards for several organizations such as The Midcoast Habitat for Humanity, Ragged Mountain Ski Area, and Penobscot Bay Medical Center. She is currently a state representative for Camden, where she is on the Environment and Natural Resources Committee. She is active with the Camden Yacht Club and a past recipient of the Realtor of the Year award. Vicki is also an avid knitter, a longtime scuba diver, and a novelist who has authored several murder mysteries, among other works.
Vicki has a genuine capacity to guide her clients through the buying/selling process, and she goes above and beyond in helping them find their place in the community in meaningful ways.
"Vicki worked with me to help me find my first home in the Midcoast area. She had a real connection with the area, and was extremely knowledgable and helpful throughout the home buying process. I’m now looking at investment property, and once again Vicki has been nothing short of fantastic."
"We really appreciated Vicki’s valuable input and expertise throughout our new home purchase. From the start with viewing properties, during the transaction and into the closing, she always had our interests. Even after the purchase she continued as a great resource in finding the right contractor for renovations. We highly recommend Vicki!"
"In 2015 we sold a piece of property in the Camden/Lincolnville area. Our agent and representative was Vicki Doudera. From our initial contact with Vicki we were impressed with her knowledge of the market, her knowledge of the area and her perspective on our property. From first listing the property to the final closing details Vicki was diligent, thorough, confident and objective. She brought to sale a complete sense of competence and enthusiasm. Any and all documentation that was needed was prepared with accuracy and expediency. In the months after the sale we were also provided with information that we will need going forward for tax documentation. We have since moved out of state but talk about the possibility returning to Maine at a later date. Vicki Doudera at Camden Real Estate Company would be the first phone call that we would make."
"Vicki Doudera is a true professional who is attentive and a joy to work with. Her knowledge of the real estate market as well as life in Midcoast Maine was most helpful to us as newcomers to the area. In 2008 She found our first house in Camden and in 2015 did an amazing job selling it in a short period of time while helping us find our current home."
"My wife and I had been looking for a home for over 6 months. We partnered with a few different realtors that were all the same. They all were anxious to make us sign their contract paperwork, talk about their commissions, send us a million properties tailored to their own parameters not ours, and show us 50 different homes that they knew NOTHING about. I discussed my struggles with some of my Senior Management Team at work and 3 different people said I needed to talk to this lady, Vicki Doudera. I reached out to Vicki and she was extremely energetic and extremely knowledgeable about the area we were targeting. It wasn’t until after Vicki found us our dream home that she said, can you please sign the agreement for me to be your broker. Vicki even told us what area she specialized in and if we wanted to visit homes in the neighboring town then she would refer us to someone different. Who does that? Who gives away commissions because the town her client wanted wasn’t one she knew a whole lot about. That’s unheard of, but that’s Vicki! Within a few days Vicki had found a handful of homes that fit our parameters. She met us at every home and even had the Sellers’ Brokers show up to show us around the homes, which no other realtor bothered to do! From the handful we picked one home we were interested in purchasing. While we were considering it, Vicki heard through her network that a beautiful homes contract had just fell through and she wanted to show us the place before it went back on the market. We ran down there, again meeting the seller’s broker, and Vicki was right, we had to have this home. She helped us understand the market to put together a solid offer. Vicki helped with coordinating an inspector she knew to save us money, along with all the other steps that go into buying a home. I couldn’t have done it without her. Now, we have been living there for the past few months. It was everything and more than what we wanted! Vicki aims to please, goes above and beyond, truly cares about you and your family, loves kids and was an absolute professional and pleasure to work with. I can’t wait to buy my next home with her, even if it is going to be in 20 years! Thank You, Vicki D. You are a Model Realtor for the MidCoast! Loving our New Home."
"Vicki listened, advised, counseled, ran interference, and negotiated with honesty, skill, and empathy. She knew what we wanted and got it for us. Not only that, she’s a pleasure to be with."
" I chose Vicki to be our listing agent because I knew her personally and she owned a camp on the
same pond that my property was on. I knew that she was a caring person who volunteered her
own time for the community’s good by starting the pond newsletter and running it for ten years.
It was also helpful that her husband is an attorney who could handle all the closing
documentation. She consistently gave sound advice on what the asking price should be and
coordinated maintenance efforts on my behalf since I was out of State. We were very pleased
