In search of someplace beautiful to live, Annie began driving throughout the Northeast and eventually into Maine, where she found Camden. “I parked in the village, stood on the sidewalk and said, ‘this is it’ and before the day was out, I rented a house and got a job.” It happens this way for many of us.
Annie has taught international relations, worked as a Soviet analyst and as a surgical scrub nurse. Having studied interior design, drafting and space planning Annie can walk you through a house and help you visualize its possibilities. Annie knows a home isn’t just life’s biggest purchase, it’s the safe haven, the everyday environment that nourishes the soul. Her buyers have called her a 'real estate intuitive.' She will listen intently to your needs, research until she finds the right property and work through every detail of a transaction effortlessly to its completion. “My clients say they trust me implicitly; no other compliment can compare to that.”
Always striving for a higher level of service and total professionalism, this brought Annie to Camden Real Estate Company after working for other local real estate agencies. “This is the place to be. I can’t stress enough what a remarkable company this is. We all work hard and take our responsibilities very seriously, but you can’t set foot in our office without knowing instantly that we are having a good time, loving our work. There’s such up-beat energy here – we all feel it - and a real pride in knowing we do things differently, better. “
In just her third year in the business, Annie was voted Realtor of the Year. She's a past president of the Coastal Mountain Council of the Mid-Coast Board of Realtors and a director for the state-wide Maine Association of Realtors.
Annie has earned the rare RSPS designation from the National Association of Realtors and is a certified Resort and Second-home/Vacation-home Property Specialist to better serve buyers and sellers in this sector of the market.
As part of her commitment to community, Annie, a devoted ‘bat advocate,’ created Maine Bat Education. A speaker with Bat Conservation International and an active member of a number of regional and national bat working groups, she offers presentations throughout Maine on the profound ecological and economic importance of bats. Annie is honored to be the recipient of the 2017 Award for Recognition from the Maine Chapter of The Wildlife Society.
In her free time, Annie is devoted to her Golden Retrievers and loves to spend time at her lakeside camp, entertaining and cooking with friends.
With the recent sale of our home, we would like to commend Annie Kassler for the work she did in bringing this about.
Annie was professional, thoughtful, responsive to our questions, and, as always, very pleasant to work with. Her thorough attention to detail was much appreciated. Throughout the years we have always enjoyed working with her and completing real estate transactions with her representing us.
Especially during this Covid-19 period it was comforting to know that she wiped down door handles and light switches after clients departed.
Annie's warm personality, her excellent communication skills, and knowledge about everything from clients to inspection details have contributed to making her an outstanding realtor, in our view. We enjoyed being represented by your fine company. As Thanksgiving draws close we wanted you to know that we are grateful, and especially appreciate this very valued member of your team.

To anyone who wants to buy real estate in Midcoast Maine, we have some very simple advice: save yourself a lot of trouble and just call Annie.”" - Barry Smith & Katelyn Quynn
