Areas of interest
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.
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.

Is there anything more nerve wracking than being in the market to buy a home in this market in a desirable town? Yes, there is. Buying said house from out of state. Sarah was amazing every step of the way through this process. She is responsive, knowledgeable, and organized and was SO beneficial that she has great knowledge of the area and local resources. Sarah’s timely responses and keen eye for details assisted in getting this transaction closed with minimal chaos. I would highly recommend Sarah!
Sarah Carson was excellent at helping us purchase our first home in this crazy housing market. As out of state purchasers, we relied heavily on Sarah showing us all the houses. She gave us her professional and personal opinions on each one of those homes, which helped us greatly throughout the purchase process.
Sarah Carson was a wonderful professional to work with during a difficult time for me— selling my mother’s house (which was my childhood home) after she died. Sarah worked quickly and effectively to get it staged and sold in a month’s time. She was an excellent communicator offering her experience and knowledge yet always asking what I needed and wanted. I was very pleased with the outcome and would work with her again without hesitation.
