THE JOHNSON FAMILY ON BAILEY ISLAND
For over 100 years, the Johnsons have lived, worked and been a part of the community on Bailey Island. While lobstering was the mainstay, the Johnsons also owned a large boarding house, which took care of visiting residents throughout the summer months. In subsequent years, they rented smaller properties and took care of other’s houses during the winter months. The Johnson family has been managing property on the Harpswell Islands for over three generations.
DAVID JOHNSON – COMMUNITY & FAMILY
David Johnson has lived on Bailey Island his entire life and, like his father before him, believes in serving the community to make it stronger. He and his wife Darla have three grown children and four grandchildren. He has a degree in business from the University of Maine and is passionate about the importance of education. He has served as an elected education official for the past twenty years and is currently the chairman of the board for the Region 10 Technical High School and Co-Chairman of the Building Committee for the new Mt. Ararat High School, both of which are located in Brunswick and serve the local children.
DAVID JOHNSON – PROPERTY MANAGER
The tradition continues with David Johnson, 61, owner of Safe Harbour Property Management. He serves as the property manager for six summer rentals on Bailey Island, renting them during the summer months and maintaining them throughout the year. He also takes care of over 50 homes spread throughout Harpswell, Bailey and Orr’s Island. He has been managing and caretaking homes for 30 years and considers himself the eyes, ears and often hands of his clients while they are away from their homes. He provides a wide range of services. But, most importantly, he understands the types of damage that can happen to an unattended house during the harsh Maine winters. He prides himself on maintaining constant vigilance throughout all of his properties and dealing with situations which arise quickly, efficiently and thoroughly.
