Immerse yourself in the rhythm of a postcard-perfect coastal village with the bay and all you need just steps away. The library and harbor park, shops and restaurants, public landing and harbor, schooners and lobster boats, post office and bank, grocery and farmers' market are all a short stroll out your door. Your home base: an appealing Cape with great curb appeal and room to spread out, featuring a front parlor, living room with fireplace, dining room, kitchen, laundry, bath and large bedroom on the 1st floor; another bath and four more bedrooms on the 2nd. Attached 1-car garage is such a convenience. The small lush lawn, a sitting area tucked into an exterior nook and a garden shed with window (perhaps a studio?) round out the offering. Home and 1st floor have had many improvements this year (see list). 2nd floor has had some work and needs cosmetics. Historic, classic, and eminently rentable, this is a home with a contented soul. Limited showing windows: see internal remarks.

In search of someplace beautiful to live Annie began driving throughout the Northeast and eventually into Maine, where she found Camden. “I parked in the village, stood on the sidewalk and said, ‘this is it’ and before the day was out, I rented a house and got a job.” It happens this way for many of us.

Annie has taught international relations, worked as a Soviet analyst and as a surgical scrub nurse. Having studied interior design, drafting and space planning Annie can walk you through a house and help you visualize its possibilities. Annie knows a home isn’t just life’s biggest purchase, it’s the safe haven, the everyday environment that nourishes the soul. Her buyers have called her a 'real estate intuitive.' She will listen intently to your needs, research until she finds the right property and work through every detail of a transaction effortlessly to its completion. “My clients say they trust me implicitly; no other compliment can compare to that.”

Always striving for a higher level of service and total professionalism brought Annie to Camden Real Estate Company after working for other local real estate agencies. “This is the place to be. I can’t stress enough what a remarkable company this is. We all work hard and take our responsibilities very seriously, but you can’t set foot in our office without knowing instantly that we are having a good time, loving our work. There’s such up-beat energy here – we all feel it - and a real pride in knowing we do things differently, better. “

In just her third year in the business, Annie was voted Realtor of the Year. She's a past president of the Coastal Mountain Council of the Mid-Coast Board of Realtors and a director for the state-wide Maine Association of Realtors. She is active in local volunteer efforts.

As part of her commitment to community, Annie, a devoted ‘bat advocate,’ created Maine Bat Education. A speaker with Bat Conservation International and an active member of number of regional and national bat working groups, she offers presentations throughout Maine on the profound ecological and economic importance of bats. Annie is honored to be the recipient of the 2017 Award for Recognition from the Maine Chapter of The Wildlife Society.

In her free time, Annie is devoted to her Golden Retrievers and loves to spend time at her lakeside camp, entertaining and cooking with friends.
