Swan Agency Kicks Off 50th Year Celebration

alt tag

On April 1, 1975, my father and mother (Cary and June Swan) opened The Swan Agency. The new office started in our dining room on Wayman Lane in Bar Harbor. The rapid success with so many friends and acquaintances supporting their new business and moving and buying insurance policies and buying and selling homes allowed them to move into a small office at 43 Cottage Street. As the business continued to succeed through their hard work and especially their devotion to their clients and customers, they were soon able to purchase the entire building in late 1976 and create today’s Swan Block.

As April 1, 2024 actually starts our 50th year in business, we are starting the celebration now and continuing it through the next year until we hit the big day, the golden anniversary. Just wait to see what we have in store for the big day. There will be cake! We have lots of fun plans through this year with our past and current clients and customers, our communities and non-profit groups and lots of looks back over the last 50 years. For those of you who have been around for the long haul and remember the iconic Christmas parties, the Swan Block before the ‘80s renovation and even those who remember starting their Swan Agency relationship in the Wayman Lane dining room - there will be some wonderful laughs and fond memories.

I am blessed and thankful to have grown the company to where we are today and the pleasure and honor to be a part of the best team ever assembled. I am especially proud and thankful to my parents who had the faith, the ambition, the love of thiscommunity and the foresight to launch this eponymous company and enable me and my amazing colleagues to guide it into it’s 50th year.

Our thanks to all who have been a part of our journey and will be a part of our future. Stay tuned for a fun and grateful year full of surprises and appreciation.

 

Very Sincerely,

Kim Swan

MaineBiz Article by Laurie Schreiber

"A general store with a prime location just outside Acadia National Park is the second acquisition for a Houston-based owner of gas stations, retail and food strips, and ATMs.

Omair Bashir, owner of Breaktime Corner Market LLC, bought 3 Breakneck Road in Bar Harbor from Ventury Enterprises for $1,398,700.

Terri Needham of Swan Agency Real Estate brokered the transaction.

The property includes the year-round Hulls Cove General Store, a U.S. Postal Service rental location and a full-service gas station, on just over an acre. The store dates back to the 1960s. The sellers had owned it since December 2017.

Hulls Cove is a village of Bar Harbor, just north of the popular tourist town.

The listing was marketed as “an investor's dream. Hulls Cove is the happening place on Mount Desert Island this year with lots of exciting new businesses enjoying the village vibe and gorgeous views.”

The store’s offerings include sandwiches, baked goods, pizza and a delicatessen.

The property was on the market for 120 days and saw interest from four or five potential buyers, said Needham.

Breaktime Corner Market, established in 2004, owns over 200 stores across the U.S., said Mindy Cole, the company’s local district manager."
