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: 
 

"We relocated from Connecticut to Maine and lucked out finding Lisa as our agent. From my first exploratory conversation with Lisa, I knew she was the one for us - she was honest, direct, full of information, and took the time to explain both the complicated process of buying a home as well as the nuances of critical steps.

While it's easy to present well initially, Lisa maintained these standards throughout the months-long homebuying process. She always responded quickly, fully, with thoughtfulness to our particular situation, and with the utmost professionalism. She took the time to get to know us as people, to know our needs and resources, and she made reasonable recommendations when we were out of our depth (which was oh so very often). She was available seemingly at all times, by phone, text, and email, which allowed for questions to be quickly be addressed.

I was particularly impressed when she lined up 8 homes to visit on one day, the one day we were able to come up from Connecticut. The first house she showed was the one we loved and ended up buying. At each house she knew all the details and had prepared informative takeaways for us. She provided critical feedback on each, with balanced pros and cons, and we never felt she was steering us towards a particular choice.

Lisa was invaluable in suggesting considerations around timing and cost during the offer phase, and wrote up a stellar letter that was accepted without modification. For all of her recommendations on home-inspectors, lenders, utility companies, etc., Lisa identified multiple providers and gave details on past experience. We generally chose a source she recommended and weren't disappointed - her list of contacts appeared inexhaustible! The home inspection company (Affordable Home in Bangor, ME) in particular was phenomenal. Lisa and I were on site during the inspection and Dan was great about including us in the process. The report was thorough, clearly presented, and available same-day. We now have a nice list of things to keep an eye on as well as improvements to make over the years.

One of Lisa's best features, beyond her charming honesty and personableness, is that she's a great project manager. She tracked all the critical decisions, prompted us when action was needed, and ensured that all sides followed through. And she tailored her interactions to the person: for myself, I like to know all the possibilities and the why of things, whereas my wife wants to know the best course of action, the bottom line. When engaging each of us, she was able to elevate our comfort level by giving each of us what we needed to hear.

I think there's a case to be made that, had we not found Lisa, we wouldn't have found our dream home in Maine. I think it's a certainty that Lisa made the process as easy as could be as well as worry-free!"  Jan 2016
