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.

About Simpson Team

THE SIMPSON TEAM

Who is the Simpson Team?

The Simpson Team started out as a vision between father and daughter with a desire to change the face of real estate by creating a more personalized and stress free atmosphere by building long term relationships with their clients and business affiliates. Our Team has evolved into a dynamic foursome made up of three full time agents and a licensed assistant.  Joe, Ashlee, Flori and Amy Jo seek to help everyone realize their dream of owning a home.

Joe Simpson brings 25 productive years in the automobile industry to The Simpson Team, and uses his unique set of skills to best benefit his clients.

In addition to his Make-A-Wish® work, Joe Simpson was instrumental in bringing Bangor Area Street Pastors, a non-denominational community presence, to life in August 2014 and where he actively participated in patrol.  Joe also served as a director on the Bangor Board of Realtors®.  Joe recently purchased a home in Florida so that The Simpson Team could expand even further than the borders of Maine.  He is an active participant in our team here as an important resource and mentor, as well as being able to sell in Florida.
