My wife and I owned a unique, large and fairly expensive parcel of land with water features in the area. We had previously listed the parcel with one of the larger agencies and quite frankly not much happened. Not much happened until that is, we found George Wilson from Aland Realty. George seems to know everyone as well as having a great deal of experience. He also has a casual, comforting manner and everyone likes him from the potential buyers to the town officials. Within a short time George found a stream of potential buyers. After the buyer was found George was assisted in the sale by his co-agent and friend Paul Salacain. Paul was excellent in the detail work and also a pleasure to work with. The two complimented each other. Finally the co-owner of the company Chris Erikson was always available to answer any other questions we might have had. The sale was completed with happy sellers and happy buyers. This is an excellent company and worthwhile of your serious consideration for any of your real estate needs. In my opinion this company and our agents, George Wilson and Paul gave us a 110% of their effort in helping us achieve our goals and sell our property.

Stonecrop Farm, Eliot, Maine
Stonecrop Farm in Eliot was carved from what was once wilderness Maine. Its name undoubtedly came from the wry expression that early settlers used to describe the rocky soils. But with typical Yankee ingenuity they made a positive out of the rocky “crop” by turning it into the iconic stone walls that formed the pastures and fields of their farms and homesteads. Steve and Donna Towne, who purchased a part of the old farm, were moved by the historical significance of the property. They carefully laid out the boundaries for a six-lot cluster of homes using the natural stone wall boundaries and inherent land characteristics that themselves dictated appropriate and best homesites.
The Stonecrop Farm community will be designed and built by Connor Mill-Built Homes, whose reputation for designing homes and milling exquisitely accurate historic architectural detailing is known throughout the Northeast and beyond. The development features a unique collection of homes with the common attribute of architectural beauty borrowed from the best architectural examples in history, mixed with the best refinements and efficiencies of today’s building technology.
The homes presently chosen for each lot have been selected for their historically inspired beauty and appropriateness for each lot. Each of the homes can be modified or even completely re-designed should a client prefer a different plan or historic style. The present property owners have final architectural control so as to ensure that the lifestyle built around timeless architecture and place is preserved and honored.
