Micki Colquhoun brings tremendous grace and a wealth of life experience to her real estate clients. She's personable, social and very available, but she's also an energetic researcher who enjoys number-crunching and market analysis.

Her clients marvel at her energy. "She's gung-ho from the start, really motivated, and she works so hard. She really listens to what you're looking for," said one woman recently.

After earning a master's degree in business administration, Micki worked on Wall Street for fifteen years before moving to Castine, Maine in the late 1980s. She then used her finance background working for the Eastern Maine Development Corporation, teaching at Maine Maritime Academy, and as administrator at her children's school. The town of Castine seemed quiet after their children left home, and after a few years spending winters in Venice, Italy, Micki and her husband, artist Jeff Colquhoun, moved to Camden in 1999.

"It's such an easy place to move into compared to almost any place else on the Maine Coast. You can move here, and people are happy to meet you. They are so welcoming of new people here," she says.

Micki began selling real estate in 2001, and since then she's carved out a reputation for excellence, having been top producer at both her previous firm and at Camden Real Estate Company. "I love putting transactions together. And what I've found is, there's a way to do it where essentially everyone gets what they want, and they feel good about it."

Micki likes the approach taken at Camden Real Estate Company to presenting properties. "There's a culture of teamwork in the organization that's very supportive of each other, which works well for our clients. Because it's a relatively small agency, it's flexible, responsive, and you have a sense of what's going on. It's a good place to work and a good place to use for buying and selling properties."

For Micki, this is the best of all possible worlds. "For us, part of the move to Maine was to lead a considered life. I happen to love doing real estate, but other things are important too … family, and having memorable experiences. When you look back at your life, that's your treasure."
