Camden Hills is "where the mountains meet the sea" and has been home to John & Linda Burgess for over 30 years. Maine found its way into John's heart while spending endless family summer vacations on Moosehead Lake as a child. The expression "Maine the way life should be" rings true. Maine life is good...
Getting here took time. Born in Pennsylvania. Raised in New Jersey. Off to college in Denver. Followed by 20 years of career assignments in San Francisco, Chicago, Minneapolis, Boston and sunny Bermuda, all tied to management positions in the hospitality industry mostly with Marriott Hotels & Resorts. It was a good run but Maine always beckoned.
Life-long experiences have lent themselves perfectly to his real estate career. A blend of corporate life, sales management, hotel & resort operations, small business, local resources, and his entrepreneurial spirit have worked successfully to the advantage of his clients on all sides of a transaction. A real estate transaction is complex. There are many moving parts. John has the talent and ability to guide a transaction to a successful conclusion. He has a passion for real estate and simply enjoys his work.

Linda is all about the details... Starting with hobbies, Linda is an outstanding Needle-Pointer ... a "stitcher" with an excellent eye & mind for detail. We bring Linda's hobby up first because it carries over into her work. No detail is missing in the delivery of services. Linda is that good! Her whole effort is directed at simple perfection.
Happily behind the scenes keeping the back office running and running right. Again, with the focus is on the details. Her career prior to landing in Maine was in banking. Be sure the "the books" balance to the penny. In administrative capacities, Linda has worked for County Trust in New Jersey, Bank of America in San Francisco, Continental Illinois Bank in Chicago & Boston and Central National in Minneapolis, all while John hopped around with Marriott. Their last stop was Bermuda, where Linda enjoyed a 3-year extended holiday when John managed Castle Harbour.
They settled in Maine almost 30 years ago. Once here they cobbled together a successful small business tied to hospitality & lodging, real estate and vacation rentals. Their partnership goes way back having first met in junior high school in Tenafly, New Jersey. It's a great partnership that has served them well in life and business. True examples of Yin & Yang. Each with a role to play.
The slogan rings true for them, "Maine the way life should be."... Maine is after all Simple Perfection...
