John Herrigel owner/broker

"The Best Way to Create the Future is to Live in the Present"

I have been a full-time real estate broker for 10+ years and closed 300+ transactions helping primarily buyers relocate to the Greater Portland and Mid-Coastal waterfront regions.

Originally from Chatham, NJ, I was fortunate to spend every summer on the coast of Maine, specifically in Phippsburg, a coastal peninsula about an hour's ride north from Portland.

My past work experiences have included real estate development, carpentry, web design and hospitality management.

I attended the University of Virginia, graduating in 2002 with a degree in Economics.  A  highlight was spending a semester blue water sailing aboard a tall ship with the program SEA Education.

I enjoy adventuring having spent this past winter (2016) in Medellin, Colombia rebuilding our real estate web systems and learning Spanish!  ( I also sailed from Maine to the Caribbean and back with 2 good friends 8 or so years ago. (

I currently enjoy spending time with family and friends, pursuing outdoor activities and getting out on the water whenever I can.  I am an avid sailor and boater, enjoy tennis, running and most recently CrossFit. 

I will always be considered "From Away," but Maine is definitely 100% my home and I love it.
