CHRISTA KELLEY | OWNER

I grew up in Maine living in Brunswick and spending summers in Harpswell. My childhood passion and commitment to the game of soccer led me to be one of the first women in Maine to play at the Division 1 level. That experience taught me that anything can be accomplished with discipline and hard work. It also inspired a desire to be a role model for other girls playing the game leading me to coach and give back to the community.
After graduating from the University of New Hampshire magna cum laude 3.79 GPA with a degree in Political Science and English I moved to Washington, DC to work for Merrill Lynch in the Private Client Group.
In 2000, I left Merrill Lynch to travel the world for a year before moving back to Maine to work for Fairchild Semiconductor where I managed the testing of all software upgrades. During this time, I began a masters program at Tufts University in Medford, MA. In 2005, I left Fairchild to pursue my entrepreneurial spirit in real estate and opened Apex Luxury Rentals.
Pastimes include running, tennis, snow-shoeing, reading a great book at the beach, traveling, and hiking with my yellow lab Mia. I have a passion for running and am training for a number of races, some of which will be fundraisers for worthy causes. I am a member at the Portland Country Club. I am an avid collector of art and have a keen appreciation of Maine artists that capture the rugged beauty of our state.
I am an Associate Broker with the Apex Real Estate Group, a member of the Portland Board of Realtors, a member of the Portland Landlord Association. I enjoy working with investors who are looking to acquire property based on rational investment returns and provide the property management after the sale which is the real key to successful and responsible property ownership.
I live in Falmouth and travel often to Naples, Florida. Both personally and professionally I support numerous local charities including the Alzheimers Association, Camp Susan Curtis, Camp Sunshine, Winter Kids, Seeds of Independence, and the Falmouth Food Pantry.

I grew up in Brunswick, Maine. I graduated from the University of Vermont with a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology with minor in Biology and a concentration in pre-med. I returned to Maine in 2007 to work for Citigroup as a financial advisor and loan officer. Upon returning to Maine, I also earned my Sales Agent license in real estate. In 2011, I received my master’s degree in Forensic Psychology and plan to continue furthering my education in the future. In my spare time I enjoy reading, cooking, and spending time with friends and family.
ADAM SHAPIRO | BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT MANAGER
207-553-9966 OFFICE [email protected]
I grew up in Falmouth. I graduated from Falmouth High School and attended The Leysen American School in Switzerland. I attended the University of San Diego.
I began working for the family business, Union Oil Company, where I was in charge of business development and customer service. I spent 17 years working beside my father to build Union Oil into a well respected company that was ultimately sold to Dead River Company.
That decision allowed me to focus on establishing a real estate holding company that owns commercial properties and operating businesses in Southern Maine.
I currently live in Falmouth with my family. Both personally and professionally I support numerous local charities including Falmouth Boosters and all the local sports teams, United Way, Camp Sunshine, Winter Kids, and the Falmouth Food Pantry.
