About Sarah Carson
A Maine native, Sarah Carson was born and raised in Central Maine in the town of Waterville. After graduating from the University of Maine at Orono with a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism, she moved to the Portland area.
Before beginning her journey in real estate, Sarah worked in the corporate banking industry, where she helped consumer and small business clients achieve their financial goals. It was here that Sarah realized her passion for helping people reach their goals, strong communication skills, and her natural ability to establish sincere relationships could propel her in the real estate world.
In 2016, Sarah entered the world of real estate, most recently having worked on one of Maine’s top-producing real estate teams as an exclusive buyers agent. Sarah joined Portside Real Estate Group as her entity in September of 2021, where she can serve both buyers and sellers. She takes pride in building long-lasting relationships with clients and helping families through the home buying and selling process.
What Sarah Carson loves most about real estate? It’s not the sales or looking at beautiful homes each day, but working with the community, building relationships, and providing superior representation through her vast knowledge and connections in the industry. She finds great joy in seeing a client hold the keys to the home of their dreams and feels excitement as a client sells their property and moves on to a new chapter.
Sarah believes each day in real estate is an adventure and an opportunity to grow as an agent. She loves exploring new properties and learning about different areas. Whether it’s a farmhouse built in 1870 or brand-new construction, you never know what you’ll see.
Sarah Carson lives in Portland, Maine, with her husband Dustin, daughter Georgia, and Maine Lab Rescue pets Kona and Kai. She enjoys spending time at her camp on Great Pond in Belgrade, Maine, and exploring everything the beautiful state of Maine has to offer.
