Some history books claim that Ellsworth was originally inhabited by members of the Passamaquoddy Indians and the Penobscot Indians. Modern historians claim that Norsemen and possibly other sailors explored the coast before the time of Columbus and may have settled there. However, the earliest recorded European settlers in this area were the French, perhaps as early as the 1500s. Of course, the British followed and throughout the seventeenth century and part of the eighteenth century, the British and French battled for ownership rights.

About Christine

After moving to Maine at an early age, Christine completed her Bachelors degree at Trinity College in Connecticut. After a short time on the north shore of Massachusetts, Christine gravitated back to life in Maine, first to the Portland area and then back home to the Blue Hill peninsula. Along the way, she gained 10 years experience in marketing/advertising in publishing, and also completed a Masters degree in Social Work at the University of Maine in Orono.

Christine's love of life in Maine centers on the four season recreational opportunities that this beautiful part of the world offers. "My love of the outdoors from downhill skiing to gardening is a primary reason for living where I do. It is a wonderful, safe place to raise a family, with great schools, and amenities close at hand."
Christine's enthusiasm for the Maine way of life results in a special dedication to buyer clients in assisting them to find just the right property. Whether in coastal Hancock County, the greater Bangor area, or the western mountains/Sugarloaf area, she will work diligently in locating possible purchase choices.
Christine's experience as a homeowner, as well as investment property owner and property manager and landlord, lends a knowledge base that complements nicely those searching for niche properties. Should you be in the market to sell your home, she works to actively promote your listing via print media and online resources.
