A native Vermonter and Middlebury College graduate, I came to Maine over 30 years ago for what I thought would be a year to indulge a passion for sailing and yacht design. I never left—a true testament to the quality of life and diversity of experience that the Midcoast has to offer. I’m a 25-year resident of Topsham’s Historic District.
My wife, Daria, works with kids with special needs in the local school system. We have been married 32 years and have three grown daughters—all of whom, thankfully, have remained close by. When I am not working, I like to spend as much time as possible in the garden or on the water. My own old house continues to be a work in progress.
Mature, diligent, and thorough, I also try to maintain a sense of humor about the unexpected things that life will inevitably throw our way. In addition to the many contacts and resources I have developed over the years in real estate, I also have extensive experience, knowledge, and contacts in custom design, building, and remodeling, including top-notch tradespeople. I’m easy to get along with and a good problem-solver. Before real estate, I had a long career in residential design and custom building. This experience informs a unique perspective on all of my transactions, whether you’re buying or selling.
Looking to buy or sell? I have been successfully helping people with the purchase and sale of real estate for almost 15 years.
My goal, always, is to help you make good, sound decisions about your real estate needs and options. You can reach me at 207-504-1262. Give me a call!
We really enjoyed working with you. Your low-key, calm, and competent approach to the process of helping us find a house was so comforting to us.

Mike Hamilton is an experienced and professional Realtor who fully assisted me with the selling of my house at the beginning of this year. He provided guidance and expertise in every step of the selling process on schedule and with no surprises. Within three days of being on the market, a buyer was found and the house was sold happily and hassle-free!
I can't imagine going through this process without Mike. He was professional and concerned and lead me through the purchase, helping me navigate the ups and downs and concerns about the property. As a former contractor, Mike's expertise was invaluable to me. He made himself available during the building inspection when I needed to be out of town due to a death in my family. He put so much time and effort into this purchase that I can never thank him enough for his help.
Mike was wonderful to work with. He was very responsive to all of questions, and we always felt he had our best interests in mind. The process was smooth from start to finish, and we are very happy with our new home.
Mike has represented us in two real estate transactions. One in the sale of our home and one in the purchase of a second home a year later. As sellers, we relied heavily on Mike’s expertise to guide us through the preparation and sale of our home. In purchasing a second home, we saw a whole new side to Mike as he worked his schedule around ours in order to take us through the many homes we wanted to see. Our work schedules meant he made himself available evenings and weekends, which was a huge help. Mike has been prompt at responding to phone calls and emails with our endless questions and has always made sure we understood every step of the process. While we know Mike has other clients, his dedication to helping us sell our home (and later to buy our second home) makes you feel like you’re his only client. We plan on moving one more time in a few years and we already know we will be calling Mike Hamilton to work with us again.
Mike is outstanding— a wonderful person and real estate agent. He is incredibly patient, thorough, informed, and creative. I'm so grateful for his support and insight.
Thank you for all that you did to make it so easy to sell our home. Your expertise, helpfulness, and optimistic outlook were much appreciated at every step. You were always quick to respond to all of my questions and always answered them thoroughly. I recommend you to everyone in the area, and I will miss being your neighbor! My best to you and your family.
We are so happy with our new home in Maine, and Mike Hamilton made it possible. We were moving from another state and had to sell our house, so it could have been complicated. Mike supported us throughout the entire process. His understanding of what we were looking for in a new home and community and his understanding of local communities and homes throughout the Midcoast were the reasons we found the perfect match. His clear and consistent communication made the process easy even though we were in another state. He was proactive with suggestions on how to prepare for a smooth and speedy closing. He guided us to a wonderful banker, title company, home inspector, and insurance provider. He went to the home inspection in our places and did the same with the walk-through. The closing was quick and seamless. Mike is a knowledgeable and reliable Realtor. We are so grateful we found him.
