Hilary Denvir was born on Mount Desert Island and spent most of her childhood years there, learning from an early age that if something is worth doing, it is worth doing right the first time. She believes that what you get out of things is what you put in to them and thus strives to put 100% into everything that she does. An avid reader and a life long learner, she has an obsessive fascination in cultural anthropology, and is working on getting her bachelor's degree in social sciences, with the long term goal of acquiring her doctorate in neuropsychology. It is her love of interpersonal communications, design, and her passion for the area in which she lives that led her to choose real estate as a profession. She enjoys the people she meets and the places she gets to explore, and believes that each real estate deal is as unique as the people within it, bringing with it a wealth of knowledge and experience. She loves a good challenge, but firmly believes that one should leave each day and each situation better than we found it, and she strives to live and work by that philosophy each and every day. Hilary loves the ocean and the landscape that it creates on the shores of Maine, and is proud to be raising her daughter in the same place where she herself grew up. She feels Mount Desert Island has an abundance of opportunities and activities to keep her family active, and loves the strong sense of community that can be found on the Island's small towns. She has always believed that it is just as important to work hard as well as smart; because it's only attitude that separates us from success and failure. She was drawn to The Swan Agency Sotheby's International Realty from an early age for their connection to the community in which they live and work, and for their commitment to quality and perfection that so closely matched her own. She joined The Swan Agency Sotheby's International Realty team in the spring of 2011, apprenticing for two years before gaining her Associate Broker License and broadening her coverage area to include the Blue Hill Peninsula. She loves the people that she works with, and enjoys the opportunities real estate brings to her, the people she gets to meet, the lives she becomes a part of, and the futures she helps build. She is honored each and every time she is chosen to help make someone's dreams come to fruition, whether it be finding their dream home for their family, or moving on to something that suits their current needs more proficiently. Hilary looks forward to a lengthy career as an associate broker at The Swan Agency Sotheby's International Realty, living and working in an environment she knows intimately and loves deeply.
