Principal Broker at Maine Real Estate Brokerage
George MacLeod, owner and principal broker, has experience and training in brokerage of primary residential and vacation homes, large land parcels, commercial properties and businesses. He is a 1972 graduate of the University of Maine with extensive experience in land use planning, property development, home construction and renovation, business start-ups and sales, and natural resource conservation. George has personally built, bought and renovated numerous properties including the historic Bradley Block in downtown Bucksport where he and his wife, Katie, opened the landmark MacLeod’s Restaurant in 1980. The couple have four grown children – all proud Mainers. George began his real estate brokerage career in 2001 at Landmark Properties in Bucksport. He was soon recruited by luxury real estate firm, Trimble Private Brokerage, where he became that agency’s top broker specializing in the marketing of islands, waterfront homes, and historic residential and commercial properties. When Trimble moved it’s operation to Charleston, South Carolina, George and two partners founded the Christopher Group which quickly grew to become the premier brokerage for waterfront residential properties and businesses in Downeast, Maine. In response to requests from his growing list of international buyers and sellers, George opened Maine Real Estate Brokerage in 2013 to offer marketing and brokerage services state-wide.
