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.

TESTIMONIALS:

"James helped us to purchase our future retirement property in Maine. His knowledge of the area and the community were invaluable in helping us make the decision to purchase. He has an easy going personality which is a pleasure in this uptight world." January 2017

"We had Jim come and discuss selling our home. The pictures he took and the way it was presented online was phenomenal. Our home sold within 2 weeks for the asking price. He is so knowledgeable and gave great advice. I would highly recommend Jim if you are truly interested in selling your home. Just be prepared, as it may sell quick.... couldn't be happier." January 2017

"Based on our recent experience with Jim as our buyers' agent, we are pleased to recommend him highly. He is patient (for example, not at all in a hurry whether at a showing or when dealing with our many questions over the course of many phone conversations); and thorough, following up on every detail (there were plenty). Jim's guidance in regards to our making an offer that led to a successful outcome proved absolutely sound, and his energy and enthusiasm made the whole process very pleasant." Sept 2016 

"Jim St. Laurent was a joy to work with right from the beginning. He was very knowledgeable about the area and the market where my parcel was. He explained everything in great detail and made me feel very comfortable with the whole process. I have already passed his name on to friends and relatives in the area. He even helped me with my lack of computer skills and was very patient with me during that process. I will recommend Jim to anyone who is interested in a stress free experience selling real estate in his area." Sept 2016

"It was a great experience working with Jim. We mainly corresponded via email (my preference) and his responses were both timely and exactly what was requested. He is knowledgeable and professional.
