Homes for Sale in Historic Central Maine

Bangor was settled in the 1760s and became known as the “lumber capital of the world” during the 19th century. Most of Boston and New York City is built from lumber transported from the Bangor port. By 1900, an average of 2000 vessels called at Bangor annually. The great fire of 1911, sparked by embers from a hayshed, destroyed much of downtown, but did not stop the citizens of Bangor from re-building. Most of the present downtown is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as the “Great Fire Historic District,” while the portion that survived the fire is the 'West Market Square Historic District.”

Bangor is the hometown of Hannibal Hamlin, Abraham Lincoln’s first Vice-President and a strong opponent of slavery. William Cohen, former U.S. Senator and United States Secretary of Defense under President Bill Clinton is a Bangor native. Singer/songwriter Howie Day and comedian Bob Marley were born in Bangor. Bangor’s most notable residents are writers Stephen and Tabitha King. Current U.S. Senator Susan Collins also lives in Bangor.

Population density in Bangor is low at 901 people per square mile. A typical Bangor resident is 36 years old, educated, travels 15 minutes to work, lives in a household of two, and has a family income of $42,047.

About Denise

I am often asked, are you from Maine?  I guess I don’t have the typical accent and so my answer is… I was born in Bangor, but I had the opportunity to travel throughout the country as a child because my Father was in the Air Force, yes I was an “Air Force brat”!   I attended 4 different elementary schools, 3 junior highs, 2 high schools and 2 colleges from Maine to Alaska.  Being in a military family helped me to always be prepared for the challenges of moving and to adjust to a new place to call home as well as making new friends.  It was a great life lesson and I believe it prepared me for my career as a REALTOR®.  I understand how challenging a move can be for a family, whether it is across town or across country.  After graduating from the University of Southern Maine, I worked in  various sales/marketing positions throughout Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont.  After residing in several New England locations, I chose to make Bangor my home again to be near Family.

I obtained my real estate license in October of 2004 and I am a Full-time Broker with Realty of Maine.   I offer a professional, detail oriented, knowledgeable, and down-to-earth approach to selling real estate. Understanding and analyzing the local real estate market, knowing the inventory and discerning my client’s needs is my priority.   I pride myself on being an early adopter of technology, being one of the first brokers to use mobile devices and social media platforms to communicate and promote my listings.  To stay ahead in this very competitive field, I am committed to being a life- long learner to continue to improve my skills.   In June of 2008, I completed the state of Maine Designated Broker Class and obtained my Broker license in October 2008.  I have also earned the prestigious GRI® designation* (Graduate, Realtor® Institute) and e-Pro® designation.  I served as the 2014 President for the Greater Bangor Association of Realtors® and was awarded REALTOR of the Year for 2014 and 2015 .  In addition I served on the Board of Directors and several committees for the  Maine Association of Realtors® and I am a member of the National Association of Realtors®.  

I have volunteered my time to various organizations in our area such as the American Folk Festival, walked in the Hike for the Homeless and walked in the Race for the Cure, to name a few.  I have also worked on committees to raise money for Sarah’s House, Bangor Homeless Shelter and Habitat for Humanity to name a few.

On my free time I enjoy photography, exploring Maine in my “Summer Cah”, live music, travel, technology (gadgets)  and spending time with Family and Friends. I live, work, and play in this area and I love exploring Maine, from the small coastal villages,  rocky shoreline and beaches to the mountains and lakes.  I want to be “Your Maine source for Real Estate”,   so please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have at denise@soldinmaine.com or  you can reach me at my direct line 207-356-3906.
