Waterfront Properties of Maine is located near the village of Union which is in just about the geographical center of the Midcoast region, being a hub from which the spokes extend out to the communities around the coast – to Damariscotta, Waldoboro, Thomaston, Rockland, Rockport, Camden and Belfast. Union is also surrounded by many lakes and rivers, all of which lends itself to our specialty: being “buyer’s brokers” for those seeking to buy any type of waterfront property anywhere in Maine.
If you are in the area, please feel welcome to stop by for a visit. There is usually a pot of coffee brewing and, in chilly weather, a cozy fire burning in the fireplace.
Les Taylor has been a real estate broker since 1983. For l7 of those 32 years, he was a broker in the Napa Valley wine country north of San Francisco, co-founding Beck & Taylor Realty, which is still in business there today.
Les’s wife, Sallie, attended college in Maine. After spending several vacations in Maine they decided to move here, along with their children, Samantha and Michael, for a one-year experiment in the summer of 2000. Discovering that the sign at the border “Maine: The Way Life Should Be” is more than just a slogan, it seems the experiment has become permanent.
Les loves the ocean, wooden boats and sailing. Being taken with Maine’s coast and lakes, he decided to specialize in waterfront property, developing this website to assist Buyers and Sellers of this particular category of real estate.
He also fulfilled a long-time dream…of owning a Friendship Sloop; the original lobstering boat used by Maine fishermen in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s, before the era of internal combustion engines. These small, classic fishing vessels uniquely combine beauty with sailing ability for the challenging coast of Maine.

Erik started in the real estate business 10 years ago when he moved to Maine. His background in Connecticut had first been as an engineer, and then he took over the family boat business. They owned and operated a boatyard and marine supply store, plus a full service marina.
During this period Erik took vacations to the family summer place on a small island off the coast of Port Clyde in the Midcoast area of Maine.
When he decided to retire from the boat business, he chose Maine and purchased a 1777 farmhouse on Seven Tree Pond near Union, Maine. This pond is part of the Saint Georges river system that empties into the Atlantic 10 miles downstream near the town of Thomaston, which provides Erik with some challenging kayaking trips.
After two years of renovation, he moved into his farmhouse and the following year started a small vineyard, where he plans to produce some great Maine wines.
Erik enjoys the seasons of Maine and in particular the Midcoast area, where the weather is moderated by the ocean, and also provides a vibrant mixture of artists, writers and small farms producing organic produce. Erik also enjoys introducing people to Maine and takes care to match up clients with their wants.
