About the Owner

Tom and I have lived on Peaks Island over 30 years. This is the 2nd home we've owned and the 3rd place we've lived on the island. We treasure our community and living where there is peace and quiet, beauty all around. For years we commuted into Portland for work. Now I sell real estate, mostly right here on Peaks, and my husband is retired. If you want to look at houses, I'm happy to help!

From the Owner

We love that our house is old (1880), sits up high overlooking Portland and the Diamond Islands (with views from the back of the house only) and that the nature of our house is such that, folks in one part of the house cannot be heard from other parts of the house. We have two staircases so our guests have theirs and we have ours.
