Wendy Zwecker


Growing up in a military family, moving around was a constant in Wendy’s life. The other constant was her visits to Maine, a place her family visited often and one she associated with adventure, possibility, and stability. 25 years ago, Wendy permanently moved to Maine to cultivate a simpler way of living, create the security she was craving, and allow her to embrace a healthier outdoor lifestyle that she wasn’t getting in central Texas. She found that in both the midcoast area, and in her husband, a native of Maine and outdoor enthusiast.

After working in the corporate field for eight years and having two young children, Wendy was ready for another change. She wanted something with more flexibility, more challenges, and she knew she wanted to work with people. She was considering purchasing an established vacation rental business when Scott Horty offered her the opportunity to join his team in 2005. She accepted and hasn’t looked back!

With her philosophy grounded in “no stone unturned”, Wendy is committed to understanding as much as she can about real estate through education and the real estate transaction process. She makes sure every step of the way is filled with energy and enthusiasm, and she won’t stop working for a client until she has made their dream happen; that’s what sets her apart. For a client looking to sell a property, Wendy loves knowing the “story” of the property so that she can share and blend that story with buyers to help aid them in building their life in a new area/ home. For a client looking to move to the area, Wendy is dedicated to the process of finding a property that will reflect their life and personality. Whether helping a Buyer or a Seller, she wants to ensure the process is effortless, thorough, and honest, so listening and communication are very important to her. It allows Wendy to work effectively on your behalf. This may be part of why she was chosen as the 2019 Pen Bay Realtor of the year.

Wendy feels strongly about contributing to and having a voice in the community where she lives. She has served on many committees since moving to Rockport in 2002, including the Cultural Exchange Program and Outreach Committee in Rotary, Coastal Mountain Land Trust Outreach Program, Peopleplace Cooperative as a board member, Camden/Rockport Pathways Committee, mentor for the Teen and Young Parent program, YouthArts, Camden/Rockport PTA board member, a Parent Association board member for the Maine School of Science and Math (MSSM) in Limestone, Maine (where her daughter attended school), and the Ragged Mountain Ski Club Board.

In her “free” time, Wendy enjoys all kinds of outdoor recreational activities based on the time of year (i.e., Nordic skiing, snowboarding, hiking, sailing, etc.), gardening, cooking, and traveling to new places in her " free " time. Her most important treasure is spending time with her family; which include: Sam, a 7th grade Math teacher and avid mountain biker; Zoe (a recent graduate of Colorado College) living and working in Boulder, CO; Samantha (a soon to be graduate of Tufts University) who will be living and working in Boston; Lea a ninth-grader at Camden Hills Regional High School who keeps her parents busy with her sports and energy, and their 3-year-old dog, Jazzmin, who loves carrots, chasing deer, and loves lots of walks/ hikes. Wendy feels so lucky to live in this amazing area and would love to share her knowledge/ expertise with you to see if this place can meet your needs and dreams too.

"My wife and I want to thank you for your extraordinary efforts on our behalf when offering for sale and selling our home in Camden, Maine. When we interviewed you, we felt your intelligence and outgoing personality qualified you as the person we believed best suited as our real-estate agent. What has made you standout, in our opinion, was not the fact that our second home sold quickly and at our asking price, which was a pleasant occurrence. Rather, it was your efforts after the sale. We did not expect our second home to sell so quickly and were not prepared to return to Maine to finish the preparations for the sale closing: fixing the few items the buyer wanted fixed, removing the many personal and household items still within the home, selling our second automobile, emptying and broom cleaning the house. You took on the responsibility for this and much more. All of your efforts in this regard went far and beyond the usual requirements of a real estate agent and all done with efficiency and grace. For your sales efforts and your extra extraordinary efforts, we truly thank you."

"My husband and I worked with Wendy as a seller in 2014 and again in 2016 as a buyer. In both instances we found her to be intelligent, efficient and quick to respond to all that we asked of her. When our housing search began we were living in Tucson, AZ, and we relied heavily on Wendy’s knowledge and experience to help us wade through the online listings in Knox County and pull out those that best fit our needs. She was, at all times, the complete professional – willing to view any home for us whenever we asked regardless of her busy schedule.

Her passion for what she does showed through in her unflagging good humor and enthusiasm. She made the process of buying a home actually fun. Never have we had a realtor that made us feel more relaxed and secure during a time that can be unstable and stressful.

She makes you feel as if you are her only client and finding you a house is the most exciting thing she has ever done. She will not be happy until you are. It was a joy to work with her. Thank you, Wendy.

"“Our family spent a summer in Camden and we were so charmed by the natural beauty, people, and lifestyle that we decided to relocate permanently to the area from North Carolina. Wendy was uniquely suited to help us - like our family, she has lived in many different cities, but she ultimately chose to make Midcoast Maine her home. She was welcoming, warm, and patient as we began our home search, educating us along the way about various issues to consider when buying an older home. When we fell in love with an 1853 Victorian in Rockport harbor, Wendy approached the contract negotiation with laser focus, diligence, and thoroughness. She met every obstacle with creativity and proposed knowledgeable and thoughtful solutions. Wendy's skill, expertise, and sparkly personality were invaluable throughout the process. We love our big old house by the sea and great new friends like Wendy!""

Emily and Jonathan

""Thank you one thousand times for all the hours, attention, and house wisdom you have given our family. Your care and guidance were so valuable and appreciated,,,miles beyond our expectations, leagues beyond our experience with other realtors. Beyond this, we are grateful to have made a dear family friend""

"Wendy Zwecker and Camden Real Estate took care of all our needs concerning the purchase of our new home in midcoast Maine. We sold our home in Georgia quickly, giving us little time to seek and, hopefully, buy a new one in an unfamiliar area. Luckily, we were referred to Wendy and Camden Real Estate. Wendy spent concerted time finding us homes to look at within our price range and preferences. Once we offered a contract on a home, she saw to many details that we could not do from Georgia. Her expertise in the housing market, the area and those who could and would help us as we navigated the purchase was invaluable. We recommend her and Camden Real Estate wholeheartedly for your needs to sell, purchase or rent a new home."


"Wendy Zwecker knows the Midcoast market, works to understand her clients’ wants and needs, and recognizes the value of patience. During our year-long search for the right vacation home, Wendy exhibited all of these qualities time and time again. She took time to understand our goals -- to help us refine what we were looking for and why -- and made sure we considered a variety of options. Time is often of the essence in purchasing property, but Wendy made sure we were always informed and never rushed. She was a true advocate for what we wanted the house to be, and the source of invaluable advice throughout our negotiations. The best recommendation we can give is this: We now consider her a friend."
