Eileen Beattie Sewall

“Success comes dressed in overalls and looks a lot like work.” -Thomas Edison

Eileen Sewall moved to Maine upon graduation from Rutgers University and . . . well . . . why leave?! She loves this area as much as she loves her career!

Real estate transactions involve regulations, contracts, communication skills, local knowledge, and an appreciation for architecture. A custom fit for Eileen! Prior to entering the real estate profession, Eileen was a Town Planner in York, Maine; an environmental regulatory manager; and community outreach professional for Old York Historical Society. In summary, her varied background has built a diversity of skills she can call upon when guiding her clients.

Eileen loves the history of the Seacoast area and its maritime roots which is visible everywhere in the old houses, lobster boats, and water vistas. As part of a commercial fishing family (lobstermen), she is passionate about the preservation of the environment and fishing stocks. Eileen considers herself a lifelong learner and enjoys history, museums, reading, and Googling everything for more information!

Why real estate? Finding the right home for each person is like fitting the pieces in a puzzle. She enjoys working with people from all walks of life as it allows her to share her appreciation for the rural areas, beach homes, and cityscapes that comprise this area.

Favorite aspect of my job: Contracts and negotiations! While Eileen enjoys showing houses and meeting people, she geeks out on the details of the transaction as well – it allows her to use what she’s learned to give her clients a smooth transaction.

Project highlight: Eileen collaborated with the York Land Trust to assist 2 local fishermen in their purchase of Sewall’s Bridge Dock. Similarly, she aided Old York Historical Society in the conversion of Hancock Wharf to a commercial fishing pier, using a State grant.

Family: Eileen loves spending time with her two children, both of whom attended York Schools - a son enrolled at Maine Maritime Academy and a daughter who aspires to attend culinary college.
