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 Gayle

Gayle was born and raised in the Bangor, Maine area. She currently lives in Hampden, Maine in the house where her husband Jim grew up and where Gayle and Jim raised their two daughters. She attended the University of Maine and majored in Liberal Arts and Interior Design. After college, Gayle worked as a bookkeeper for a small company and, soon thereafter, married her high school sweetheart.

 
After being a stay-at-home mom for thirteen years, her lifelong dream came true. She was hired by a local building contractor and became involved with most aspects of new home construction. "My dream of working as a carpenter came true, but after two years of taxing my body, I had to give it up."
 
But, Gayle's passion for homes did not fade and she started her own Interior painting and consulting business. For fifteen years she painted everything from old Victorians to new million dollar homes. In 2006, the physical aspects came back into play and the next step in her career became evident - real estate! "My love of people and my passion for homes made real estate a perfect match. And my knowledge of home construction has been beneficial to the clients I have assisted in finding the home of their dreams."
 
Presently, Gayle and Jim have five wonderful grandchildren and also enjoy travel, golf and decorating. Their newest passion comes in the form of two Maine Coon Cat kittens, who have stolen their hearts.
