Molly Hooper - Associate Broker
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.
Back at home, Molly continued her career in hospitality joining the Samoset Resort as Senior Sales Manager and later moved on to join Point Lookout Resort & Conference center as Director of sales, marketing, and dining. After this role, Molly left hospitality to sharpen her skills in customer service, marketing and additional personnel management by accepting a Director of Sales and Operations role with Dream Local Digital, a local marketing company serving business clients throughout North America. 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. In addition to serving as COO, Molly is also a licensed Realtor and plays an active role in SummerMaine's RE Brokerage business helping buyer and seller clients maximize their real estate goals.
Molly lives in South Thomaston with her husband, Jason and their 4 children Mattie, Lainie, Kenzi and Jaxson. She spends her down time at sporting events, on a lobster boat, cooking and enjoying Midcoast Maine life.
