Areas of interest

Greater Portland

 The Greater Portland area of Maine includes the hub city of Portland and many surrounding towns in Cumberland and York counties. The city of Portland is the most populated in the state and also a hub for the arts, entertainment, award-winning dining, and the top school districts in the state. The Greater Portland area is a highly desirable location for real estate buyers and sellers in Southern Maine.

Lakes Region

Less than an hour inland from Portland, the Lakes Region of Maine is named after over 50 lakes scattered among the towns near Sebago Lake. The Lakes Region of Maine is a premier destination for skiing, boating, camping, and hiking. This easy-access destination is far enough from the city to offer retreat and peace while still being close to the hub city of Portland, making it an excellent location for commuters and families.

Belgrade Lakes Region

The Belgrade Lakes Region is located just north of Maine’s capital, Augusta. 

This region is named after its chain of seven lakes and ponds known for freshwater fishing and other outdoor recreation. The Belgrade Lakes region is located just a few miles from Interstate 95 in the Augusta/Waterville area, so city amenities are not far away but far enough to maintain the rural feel of this region.
