Maine's coastline stretches further than California's, and its seascape is dotted with over 3,000 islands. It's a place unlike any other, and it requires a real estate agent with a deep understanding of its unique charm and challenges. My name is Heather Shields, and while I specialize in Maine's luxury real estate market, my dedication extends to helping clients at every price point. Recognized as one of Maine's top agents for the past two years and ranked in the top 1.5% of agents nationwide, my commitment is a testament to the heartfelt connection I have with the Maine communities that have shaped me.
Born and raised on North Haven—one of Maine's 15 year-round inhabited islands—community and resilience have been my life's cornerstones. My father served as the island’s ferryboat captain for 30 years, instilling in me an innate respect for Maine’s natural wonders and close-knit communities. These early experiences guide my real estate work from Camden to Cape Elizabeth, and Penobscot Bay to Casco Bay.
With 19 years in the real estate sector, my professional success goes beyond the numbers; it’s about fostering enduring relationships. I prioritize clear communication and transparency in all transactions. My commitment to community involvement is underscored by active roles in several esteemed local organizations, including as a board member of the Olympia Snowe Women's Leadership Institute. Most recently, I started the Maine Women's Project, a venture dedicated to highlighting the women of Maine and their significant contributions to our state.
Off the clock, you'll often find me absorbing all that Maine has to offer. Whether it's the ocean's call luring me and my dogs for a walk, the rustic trails of the Littlejohn Island Preserve, or a family beach outing complete with fresh-off-the-boat lobster, I embrace Maine's lifestyle to its fullest.
Whether your real estate aspirations are set on a luxury estate or a charming starter home, you can expect the same level of dedication and local expertise from me. In Maine, real estate is more than a transaction—it’s a way to share and enjoy the lifestyle and values that make this state truly unique.
