"Our experience with Ken Twaddel was exceptional. We were very impressed at how quickly he responded to every question and every request while we were looking at properties, and then he carefully and punctually guided us through the process of buying our first home. He was always exceedingly friendly and polite, and very gracious when we looked at home after home in search of 'The One', giving his honest opinion and always making sure things were on the up and up. When we did settle on a property to purchase, he made the entire process very clear and smooth for us. He worked well with every realtor we encountered and was willing and able to work with several different mortgage accountants to help us get the best one. He was very knowledgeable about the surrounding area, realtor companies and banks.

Throughout the entire experience, we always felt that Mr. Twaddle was completely on our side, working in our best interest and for our good, and indeed he was. We were very thankful to have him as our buyer broker and would recommend him enthusiastically."


"Ken's knowledge, skills, and expertise cover every facet of a real estate transaction. He is a gem!

The process of purchasing our home was seamless from beginning to end. We truly believed we'd be looking for a year. But, alas we bought the second home he showed us. During and after the transactions, Ken responded to our every inquiry swiftly and with patience.

His positive energy and professionalism made negotiations on our new home a joy!"

John and Alexa

"Ken Twaddel is brilliant! He helped us tirelessly as we chose our first home to buy after moving up from New York, patiently showing us house after house of every kind and in many diverse locations. He offered good advice when asked, was patient with our ignorance and our varying wishes throughout. His expertise in the area, and in the needs of families is excellent. During the closing process he worked through various complications with us, and made sure we got into the house we wanted at the right price and in good time. I would not hesitate to recommend Ken to anyone, and I am grateful for the help he gave us on our way."

Dave and Pat

"Ken Twaddel did a wonderful job for us when we were purchasing our New Rockport condo. His expertise and advice were extremely helpful as we transitioned from a very large house to a smaller condo. His local knowledge made a big difference in getting us settled in."

Judith and John

"My husband and I moved from Maryland about 4 years ago. I wrote to Camden Realty telling something about us and what kind of property we were interested in. We were matched with Ken Twaddel. I appreciated that a realty company would take that much care with clients and with associates. I had done some online searches and we shared them with Ken who gave us really good advice, showed us those properties and others he thought might interest us. We are in late life. One property we liked was near a lake but Ken thought to point out that it was a half hour away from a hospital by ambulance should we have a medical emergency. At our age that was a really important consideration that we might have forgotten. That wise kindly input might have upset some clients, but it was important to think about and Ken mentioned it. With Ken's help we found a property we love and Ken has been a friend ever since, being available to answer questions we might have about area services. We have been truly fortunate to know and work with Ken."


"Ken helped me to understand and deal with the process of selling my house and respond to the buyer's "demands". I felt I could trust Ken's advice but when needed he also consulted with others in his office. That and his great local knowledge and experience were what I wanted and needed in a realtor."


"Ken worked with us to purchase 8 acres in 2016. He showed us several parcels, asked the right questions to help us clarify our needs, and then led us through the purchase process without a hitch. He had good instincts in the negotiations and we were very happy with the outcome. We have since consulted with Ken on other real estate matters and he was quick to do analysis and provide advice. Highly recommend."

Mike and Patty

"Ken was wonderful to work with! He was very communicative throughout the whole process. We appreciated his calm, optimistic presence guiding us from start to finish."

Bill and Glenna

"Great experience, Ken was very knowledgeable, quick to respond and in general very very helpful. He sold five condominium unit within 60 days of listing. Great job."

Beth and Gerald

"Ken is the most responsive and professional agent we've ever worked with. He knows the local market inside and out, and provided spot-on advice to us at every step of the way. We are thrilled with our new house, and would recommend Ken to anyone looking for an agent in this area."


"Kenny is an above and beyond human being first and foremost and an equally excellent realtor second most.

He was the only person I considered in the very difficult decision to place my beloved home on the market.

Kenny was with me every step of the way from the decision to sell to the closing bell. From advising, collaborating, cleaning—yes—cleaning! stepping into the rapids with me in the flood of offers and then allowing space for my choices to unfurl.

Cannot blow his horn loudly enough! And believe me: Kenny does not! If you are looking for the best in all realty facets—look no further than Kenny! Forever grateful"


"We used Ken to sell a home that is a bit eccentric so took a bit more patience as well as a bit more vision on the part of the broker and Ken brought both qualities to the process.

We were able to enjoy [in retrospect] a reasonably easy month to find just the right buyers and now have a wonderful idea of how much you can really appreciate the broker and new owners of a cherished home."

Wenda and David

"If you are buying in Midcoast, Maine Ken Twaddel is the only agent I would recommend. I have been working with Ken for 12 years and have never been disappointed. His knowledge of the area is unparalleled and his loyalty and patience are only a few of his professional qualities that I appreciate. Ken is kind and honest and I have always felt comfortable discussing my concerns with him no matter how small. I would highly recommend Ken Twaddel."

Jack and Karen

"We worked with Ken over a couple of years, looking for a home in the Camden/Rockport/Rockland area. We looked at many homes. He was always patient with houses that we wanted to see and sent us listings he thought would interest us. His opinions were always candid, very straight forward, and extremely helpful, whether it involved the price of a property or thoughts about location.

Ken always had our best interests in mind.

We finally purchased a home with his assistance and recommend him without reservation."

Guy and Dede

"We began exploring the Central Coast Maine market over a year before we purchased in August 2020. Ken was with us every step of the way and learned our true objective with "must haves and not acceptable". He was very communicative and made us feel connected to the market but never

pushed. Ken Twaddel is the epitome of an ethical, hard working businessman that treats his clients with great respect. Ken did find us our dream house and he continued to provide support for us with his strong local knowledge long after the closing"

Lillian and Mike

"Ken is a very nice, professional, kind person! We loved working with him in searching for a home in the Camden area. We did end up finding one in Hope and we love it! Very knowledgeable of the area as well! Thanks Ken!"

Elaine and Mark

"Ken has helped me several times over the years with both buying and selling. He is great to work with and I'm always happy to recommend him to my friends. Very responsive, knowledgeable, and helpful with each step of the process. He is genuinely kind and it is always a pleasure to work with him."

Erik and Hester

"Ken is a very experienced and friendly realtor and we were lucky to work with him! He patiently showed us dozens of properties for almost 2 years till we found the right property to build our home. More importantly he helped us NOT purchase another property after doing extensive research and discovering that it was contaminated, and helping us get out of our contract. He was invested in us getting what we wanted, a clean, quiet and beautiful piece of land, and not just making a sale. Ken never made us feel pressured. He is very responsive and knowledgeable in areas we didn't even know to ask about when buying. We highly recommend working with Ken!"


"Ken is a pro. His knowledge, positive attitude, professionalism and diligence made finding my perfect lakeside retreat possible. His communication with me was excellent and he went above and beyond in making a rather complicated situation a breeze."

Eric and Vince

"Our experience working with Ken was nothing short of fantastic! We were purchasing from overseas and Ken was very easy to reach and always quick to respond. Due to his local knowledge he was able to inform us of a house that was "for sale by owner" and not yet listed officially. The house was a little over our originally stated price range, so Ken asked if we wanted to see it before sending any photos which was very considerate of him. He knew we would love it and he was correct. Within less than 48hrs we were having a virtual FaceTime tour of the house and after a very short "bidding war" which Ken expertly helped us navigate we had an offer accepted. Our new home is everything we had dreamed of and we could not have done it without Ken's help and expertise! Thank you, Ken!"


"As a first time home buyer Ken was incredibly helpful and responsive while walking me through the entire process. My situation was unconventional and he was very supportive in making sure we tried the best we could. He felt more like a coach than a realtor. I definitely felt like he had my best interests in mind."

Sylvia & Christian Forsyth

"After extensive research we chose Camden Real Estate to represent us while purchasing our first home. Our realtor, Ken Twaddel, went above and beyond our expectations, which made our home buying experience effortless and enjoyable. Ken’s expertise and knowledge of the area and all listing, as well as his excellent listening skills, allowed him to help us find the home of our dreams within a week, while vacationing in Maine. He organized everything from our lawyer to helpful details like appliance delivery . Our home purchase was seamless due to the dedication and skill of Ken Twaddel and Camden Real Estate."

Bill and Beverly Komulainen

"Ken Twaddel of Camden Real Estate proved himself to be the most talented, committed real estate professional we have ever experienced. It was clear from the start that Ken intended to sell our home, not just show it, not just list it, not just market it, but rather to sell it. He did so in a way that was honoring to my wife and I as well as to potential buyers. Not a hard sell, not a soft sell but rather the delightful act of connecting a Buyer’s wants and needs to an appropriate property. Camden Real estate has proven to us that they understand the new market realities and have redoubled their efforts to carefully represent the buyer and seller in a way that brings together the right property with the right buyer. No mass marketing here but rather a selective, carefully crafted promotion of our property. Many brokers and real estate companies have not yet figured out that the broad brush marketing methods that worked so well as little as two years ago are now largely ineffective.

Ken Twaddel was on top of things, quick to recommend ways to effectively present our home to potential buyers, effectively utilized the marketing and advertising resources of Camden Real Estate, demonstrated consistent and careful follow-up, and was always above board ,ethical and honest in his dealings with us and with buyers. We heartily recommend both Ken Twaddel and Camden Real Estate."
