ABOUT ERICA

Originally from the Bangor area and now a full time resident of Bar Harbor, Erica is a native of Maine. After graduating from Emmanuel College in Boston with a Bachelor’s degree in Business Management and Economics, Erica ventured to Fort Collins, Colorado. Always interested in design and architecture, she found working for a rental and real estate sales company a great way to explore those interests and with an affinity for working with people, she particularly wanted to help clients find a place to call home. This experience, combined with her previous career in hospitality made the leap into brokerage a natural transition. Missing the ocean life and rugged beauty of Maine, Erica moved back home and joined The Swan Agency Sotheby’s International Realty in 2006. An active citizen of Bar Harbor, Erica is a board member of the planning board and also a volunteer for Island Connections. During 2014-2015 Erica was also the President of the Acadia Council of Realtors and is still very active in that committee a division of the Maine Association of Realtors. When she’s not working, you’ll likely find her in Acadia National Park hiking and biking, golfing in the Kebo Valley ladies league, spending time with her nieces or renovating her 1895 Victorian home in downtown Bar Harbor.  Her real passion is helping others within her community and she enjoys volunteering for Island Connections helping members of the community with transportation needs.

WHY I CHOOSE TO SERVE

I became involved with Open Table MDI in 2018, first volunteering at their weekly suppers, and now as a Board member. The community suppers stand for so much more than just a meal. It is heartwarming to see all members of our community come together to share conversation over a healthy supper.
