Marissa Hyland grew up in Belgrade Lakes, ME. She spent her childhood recreating on the lakes of Central Maine and in the mountains of Western Maine. Learning how to ski at a young age, Marissa developed a passion for Snowsports and continued to participate in them through college.
Marissa started her real estate career while in college at the University of Maine at Farmington. During her years at UMF she worked at Sugarloaf Mountain teaching young children to ski and also managing the snowboard shop. She obtained her real estate license in her junior year and hoped to enter the work force already trained in the real estate industry. She studied business and therapeutic recreation and graduated in 2007.
She began her post-graduation career as part of one of Maine’s most successful real estate teams. This role became the foundation of her career. She has managed large subdivisions, created large scale marketing campaigns for high end homes, taken a variety of real estate courses and has had many great real-life engagements with both buyers and sellers. She has worked in both Cumberland and York County.
Marissa joined Portside Real Estate Group located in Kennebunk, Maine in January of 2020. She has come to Portside with over 15 years of Real Estate experience. Marissa truly enjoys the interactions and relationships she has built with her clients over the years. She has worked with first time home buyers, builders, 2nd home buyers, clients who are downsizing, clients who are upsizing, and everything in between. She truly believes in making each transaction as positive and stress free as possible.
Marissa resides in Kennebunkport with her husband, Chris, daughter, Tanner, and their dog, Boone. In the summer months they spend time around the Islands of Cape Porpoise on their boat and in the winter travel to Stowe, VT, Sunday River and Sugarloaf.
What transaction are you most proud of?
“ I was on the listing side of a $4 million beach property. The beachfront home was spectacular with every bell and whistle. The sellers had high expectations on marketing this property locally and globally. Each marketing piece I created was as special as the home. Within weeks of listing the property we brought a buyer to the table and worked tirelessly to close the transaction. I was most proud of the work my team accomplished in this sale and the perseverance it took to keep a well organized and highly intricate sale come to the closing table. In the end, both parties were happy with the transaction and I developed a lifelong friendship with sellers. I went on to list another one of their properties and worked as a buyer agent to their daughter who purchased her first home. ”

“I came to work with Marissa from a referral. From the first meeting we had, I knew I would be in good hands with her. It was an easy, pleasant experience working with her to sell my house. She was personable and professional. She worked on weekends and evenings as well as weekdays. She was on top of everything and was very proactive and diligent. She sold my house in 3 days in the middle of winter (when other realtors told me to wait till spring to list it)! The next time I'm in the market... Marissa will 100% be the person I call!”

“I have had the pleasure of working with Marissa selling two homes and buying one. She is diligent, consistent very smart and just super fun! Her knowledge of the market from both perspectives (buying and selling) is very strong and I just really loved working with her.”

“Marissa was wonderful to work with. We weren't exactly sure what we were looking for when we started our search, as we had interest in either a house to renovate or raw land to build on. She was focused and targeted in the properties she showed us. Every suggestion she made was intentional and responsive based on our unique requests. We ended up purchasing a property in Cape Porpoise and are currently building our home! Her communication was frequent and efficient, as she kept us well informed throughout the process. She was a great representative during negotiations and we genuinely felt she was on our team. We also relied on her professional recommendations for in our search for a mortgage company and attorney, and we are very satisfied with all of the professionals she referred us to. Marissa worked hard for us and we are very happy with the service she provided. Her expertise and professionalism set her above the rest.”
