Portland Maine Real Estate

A Guide to Local Area Resources

A mixture of city and country, Portland is a place where you can catch a symphony or ballet and cruise down quiet neighborhoods on your way there. With just under 70,000 residents spread out over 26 square miles, there is still enough room for everyone even though more and more people are choosing to relocate here. Portland offers eclectic sights, soothing sounds and the great salt air. A combination of big city life that blends nicely with its cozy appeal.

Only 1½ hours from Boston, Portland has all the amenities of the big city: arts districts, waterfront, museums, parks, elegant hotels, diverse shopping opportunities; but within minutes, one can be strolling through the Maine woods, canoeing down a river, or skiing some of the most thrilling mountains in New England.
