Communities I Serve

I believe I am unique in that I specialize in property types, not towns. I have closed multiple transactions in most of the following:









Old Orchard Beach


Cape Elizabeth

South Portland





the Lakes Region

I can compare and contrast the shorelines, property value trends, demographics, business climate, housing stock, etc. in each of these towns, probably because I have worked with so many people from away looking to buy primary, second home or income property help them figure out where they want to be.
