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: 
 

I just closed today on a house in Hampden and want to tell you how grateful we were to have Susan Lane and Mollie Roy as the team that made it happen.

I am a Lieutenant Colonel in the Army and was stationed in Italy when we chose Susan on line to represent us.  I flew to Maine in March to look for a house and was only here a week.  Susan worked tirelessly that week, looking at numerous houses often long into the evening providing me sage advice at every turn.

When we decided on the house I eventually purchased, Susan worked diligently to figure out the best asking price based upon her knowledge and understanding of the market.  While we ended up offering more than she had recommended, her analysis was right on the money as we found out the house was valued lower than the asking price. Ultimately good new for us but just sound reasoning for Susan. 

Susan helped me negotiate a series of delays, mishaps, and setbacks due to the ineptitude of the lender we chose.  Susan was relentless in helping me try to get answers from the mortgage company and always took the time to explain what was happening and why and continued fighting to help us finally close today.  The last three weeks were the most frustrating but Susan helped us stay the course and ensured that the delay was never from our end. I am elated that it is over and very grateful to have had Susan as my agent.

I must also take a minute to thank Susan's assistant Mollie Roy.  Mollie is a bright, professional, and enthusiastic young woman that was also of great assistance to us.  No matter what the task, Mollie came through for Susan and ultimately for me. Her assistance is greatly appreciated.

In closing, I would like to say that I have had a wonderful experience with your staff but most importantly with Susan and Mollie.  Please pass along our sincere gratitude.  We will definitely be in touch in the future as the Army calls and sends me to my next adventure.   May 2016

 

"Susan Lane is incredibly professional and I enjoyed working with her."  Oct 2015

"Susan was amazing to work with. We have used her both buying a home and selling a home and could not have asked for a more efficient and hard working realtor. Her service was exceptional and her attention to detail is unparalleled. We truly felt as though we were her only clients. I cannot recommend her enough."  August 2015

"Susan Lane is easily the best real estate agent I have ever worked with. She is intelligent, hard working, and will give you solid advice. We have bought/sold 7 homes with her over the past 9 years and she is incredible. She gets the best prices if you are selling and the best deals when you are buying. She is ETHICAL and is a pleasure to deal with. I clearly am a big Susan Lane fan."  August 2015

"Susan is an outstanding real estate agent. She listens, is professional, knowledgeable, flexible and hard working, offering wise counsel throughout the selling process. Her "staging" advice in particular is exceptional, leading to a buyer stepping forward quickly and to maximizing the return on your investment."  August 2015

"Susan was great! We purchased a house when we moved to the area. Her knowledge of the area and experience was extremely helpful. After a day of house hunting we found an amazing home. 3 years later I was relocated again for work and we used Susan again. She was extremely helpful negotiating through multiple offers. If we move back to the area, we'll definitely use her again." August 2015
