Gail is originally from Bar Harbor, and grew up watching her family run the local airport in the neighboring town of Trenton. After obtaining an Associate’s Degree in Retail, Gail opened her own clothing store named “Gail’s Garb.” She enjoyed 18 successful years owning and operating the store with locations in Bar Harbor and Sugarloaf Mountain; Gail’s home away from home. With a background in sales, owning a business and working closely with people, Gail found real estate to be a smooth transition and made it her career in 1993, joining The Swan Agency Sotheby’s International Realty.
Gail works with both buyers and sellers in residential and commercial transactions. The areas she services includes Mount Desert Island, Hancock County and occasionally Washington County. She is a past President and current member of Acadia Council of REALTORS, was named REALTOR of the Year in 2004 and was the recipient of the Certified Residential Specialist Award in 2006.
Although she’s an enthusiastic world traveler, Gail loves Maine. She appreciates the Maine way of life, where people are kind, honest and hardworking. She now resides in Trenton with her husband, and in her free time enjoys volunteering at the Jesup Library, gardening, reading and of course, traveling.
