Fletcher launched SummerMaine over 14 years ago at her kitchen table and has grown it into one of the most successful and well reviewed Vacation Rental companies in the State of Maine. Under her guidance, SummerMaine, now in it's 15th year, is known throughout the Mid-Coast as the epitome of customer service and Client satisfaction. It's personal to Fletcher. Growing up in Tenant's Harbor - a small, peninsula fishing village bustling with working lobster and fishing boats and summertime cruising yachts - Fletcher spent her summers baiting bags for local lobstermen, running take-out in an outboard from the Cod End to visiting boats moored in the harbor and mowing the lawns of the magnificent summer houses.
Imagining what they looked like inside and what it felt like to live there, her curiosity blossomed into a passion for all things related to homes and real estate. High School and College took Fletcher away from Tenant's Harbor and the State but she finally listened to the voice inside calling her back to Maine for good. Being taught the small town and Yankee virtue of valuing relationships shaped her early life and professional work alike. Her ability to develop deep and lasting relationships through business that often become lifelong friendships allow her clients to enjoy working with Fletcher on a personal level and trust that she has their interests at heart professionally. At the end of the day, Fletcher knows why people want to live here, vacation here and want to be part of this unparalleled way of life. She pours all of that local knowledge and wisdom into helping her clients accomplish their goals... whatever they may be.
As a licensed Realtor, Fletcher is also deeply experienced in buying and selling real estate on behalf of hundreds of clients over the past 15 years. She is well versed in all areas of brokerage and her unique understanding of the local markets and vast network of local contacts, friends and business acquaintances make her an invaluable resource to anyone wishing to transact real estate business in the Mid-Coast.
Fletcher lives in Rockland with her husband and business partner Michael, their 3 girls (Brayden, Olive and Charley) and a dog named Charlotte. She enjoys spending time on the water with her friends and family and is an avid runner. She currently serves on the Rockland City Council's Short Term Rental Task Force, the Trekkers “Fired Up” Steering Committee and the Trekkers Board of Directors.

Molly brings a wealth of property management and hospitality experience to SummerMaine. A graduate of Jacksonville University, with a Bachelors of Science in Business Administration, Molly started her career in property management in Telluride, Colorado as Member Services Manager for ClubCorp. Quickly developing relationships with customers, helping them with planning, reserving their vacations, and coordinating events soon led to her to the role of General Manager at SilverStar Inns, LLC., a property management company also in Telluride. She held this position for 8 years leading the growth and expansion of the company. Ultimately, like many native Mainers, she was beckoned back to her home state of Maine.

With a passion for entrepreneurship (and cooking) Molly left her position with Dream Local to build a restaurant and store near her home in South Thomaston.
Running her own business enabled Molly to participate in the community and spend more time with her children while building a thriving small business. During this period she continued to remain active in real estate as a consultant to multiple vacation rental and real estate companies. She initially served as a consultant to SummerMaine and felt a chemistry with the President and Founder, Fletcher. After a couple of years providing solid guidance as a financial and business consultant, Molly joined the SummerMaine team full time as COO in 2018.
Her most recent accomplishments include the implementation of a full scale enterprise software platform for SummerMaine that will allow the business to scale into the future as well as enhance the overall customer experience with SummerMaine clients and renters through a new interactive user interface.
