I feel that having the right real estate agent means having an agent who is committed to helping you buy or sell your home with the highest level of expertise in your local market. This means also to help you in understanding each step of the buying or selling process. This commitment level has helped me build a remarkable track record of delivering results.

Whether you are an experienced investor or a first time buyer, I can help you in finding the property of your dreams. Feel free to browse through my profile and please don’t hesitate to reach out for any of your real estate needs!

Born in Norway, Maine and raised in Greenwood not far from Mt.Abram and Sunday River; I grew up surrounded by beautiful lakes, and mountains. I have lived by Lake Pennesseewassee for the past 15 years, I know the ins and outs of the community and the surrounding areas. I have enjoyed being active in local schools and sports.

This is my dream job! I get to help people figure out which home and community fits their family’s needs so they can focus on living their best lives. It’s very important to me that my clients and their families are happy whether they are buying or selling their home.

Representing buyers or selling a property is something that I take seriously, and the agent that you choose can have a significant impact on your results. I am very fortunate to work with a team of experts to make this an easy experience for you!

I promise to work diligently to exceed your expectations. I pride myself on great communication.  I like to keep clients involved with all transactions during this process. Let me make this an easy process for you, I can help you negotiate the best terms at the best price.

Shawn McKillop


Shawn McKillop specializes in luxury waterfront and commercial transactions, but also has a heart for guiding first time buyers in making the best possible decisions that meet their needs and fulfill their wants. Shawn has a passion for providing the best experience possible to his sellers and buyers through knowledge, experience and integrity. He believes that it is not enough to put a For Sale sign on the property and to hope for showings. Instead, Shawn uses tools that show the unique features of your home to potential buyers outside the area through a tailored marketing plan. Coldwell Banker has the advantage of being locally owned, but benefits from national and international exposure. Contact Shawn McKillop to see the tools Coldwell Banker Team Real estate has provided him with to give your home the extra exposure needed to find that next buyer.

Jay Andrews

Associate Broker

As a Real Estate agent in the Lakes Region and Southern Maine, I am proud to work with a wide range of clients across many markets. Whether you are looking for your first home or a dream vacation home, buying or selling I am here to walk alongside you. My style is built on determination and dedication to develop a relationship, get to know your wants and needs and then match those to the perfect opportunity to buy or sell. I want to make sure that you feel confident with all your decisions.

I have been a Maine native my entire life, being the third generation to be on the lake. I have spent many hours on the water, from sailing to jet skiing and everything in between. The lakes are also amazing in the wintertime with snowmobiling and snow shoeing. I also enjoy riding my Harley around looking at all this beauty Maine has to offer.

Sasha Swander


As a Maine native, I have witnessed all that this “vacationland” has to offer- from the lakes and mountains region, all the way to the rocky coastline. My intimate knowledge of this state and my experiences from living here my whole life give me the expertise needed to help you with any real estate needs you may have.

I have always had a passion for helping people and I look forward to utilizing my eighteen years of customer service experience to help future clients navigate the real estate processes of selling and buying. It is my intention to make this journey as flawless as possible for you. With my open communication, diligent work ethic and client focused approach I have no doubt that I will be able to help you obtain your real estate goals.

In my free time, I enjoy being with my husband and step-daughters. You can find me enjoying long hikes with my dog Oliver, indulging in a good book, working out and cooking.

Just know I am always here for you with any questions you may have!
