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.

A native of Eastport, Heidi has been self-employed since age 19. Before moving back to her hometown, Heidi managed a large commercial building in Portland and other business concerns in Augusta. Her extensive expertise in residential and commercial real estate comes from that experience and from having bought and sold five houses and a commercial building of her own.
“Heidi was great! She was helpful with everything, especially with finding legal help regarding the occupants. I would refer Heidi to everyone.” Dec 2016
“It was all perfect. I had a great experience with Heidi throughout the entire transaction. I work a lot of hours, so Heidi had to fill in all the gaps for me and she did! I would refer Heidi to everyone.” May 2016
"I have a home in Steuben on the ocean that I have had on the market for about two years. I finally decided to rent the home to pay the taxes, insurance, etc. In looking for a property manager, I found Heidi Holley of Holley Property Management Co. I was delighted to see that she is also an agent with Realty of Maine. All of my life I will readily compliment good service and I want to do so now. Heidi is an excellent agent and is a real "go getter" and an extremely hard worker. She has found a good solid renter in a very short time and her all-inclusive property management services are a great comfort to us. I also feel that she will end up selling the property herself! Again, you have an outstanding agent in Heidi." March 2016
