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.

"When my husband and I decided to sell our house we had no doubt that The Brasslett Team was our top choice. Their combined real estate expertise and background in construction really fit our needs perfectly. From the second we contacted Jodi, she was full force ahead." July 2016
"Jodi is professional, kind and extremely knowledgeable. In all our years of relocating with the Navy, Jodi is the only agent we would happily recommend to our friends and family. Your company has a gem and we hope you always treat her well. " May 2016
"The Brassletts listed our house and within two weeks we were under contract. We then had them build our new home which was. Fantastic experience. We would choose them again without hesitation for either real estate sale or building another home." April 2016
"Working with Jodi and Joe was and continues to be terrific. The Brasslett team helped my family to purchase a home from out of state and they did such a wonderful job that we purchased the home without ever setting foot inside! They walked through the home while giving us a live video tour and answered all of our questions along the way. We are now planning on selling our home and Jodi and Joe have been willing to provide guidance for what updates will help make the home more marketable as well as assistance with finding our next home. Their combination of real estate expertise and construction expertise make them the perfect real estate agents to work with." March 2016
"The Brasslett Team are wonderful - Jodi, Joe and Pat. Jodi literally searched the State of Maine for our perfect home. The team listened to all our requests and answered every question (and we ask a lot of questions) After years of relocating with the Military this was by far trouble-free and the easiest most enjoyable move we have ever had Thanks to Jodi & Joe. Negotiations and safeguarding us, no worries, Jodi & Joe had our interests covered at every turn. Pat was always helpful in answering questions. We contracted with the team to install a new roof and add stalls in the barn. We will use them for all of our remodeling projects. How refreshing to have someone with such an excellent work ethic and access to quality materials. A team that in fact listens to what we want. We really cannot say enough good things about this crew. We just recommended the Brasslett Team to a family member. Jodi is already hard at work helping them locate their retirement home and if it needs any upgrades, Brasslett Construction will have another booking. We are confident we have a professional team working on our upgrade projects but we also have made lifelong friends. Thank you for everything," Tommy & Laura March 2016
