I attended Colby College and graduated with a B.A. in Philosophy in 1970. I owned several businesses until I became a Realtor in 1991. I was with ERA Allied from 1991 until 1996 when I joined Mark Stimpson Plourde Real Estate. In 1999 Mark Stimpson Plourde was sold and became DeWolfe Plourde Real Estate. I not only progressed through my real estate career with these companies, but I won many awards and distinctions.
During my career, I have sold and marketed hundreds of properties. I hold the professional designations of G.R.I. and A.B.R. These are the highest awarded by The National Association of Realtors.
In 2002, I started my own real estate company: Mainely Real Estate. Real estate is a personal service business. My purpose is to be able to offer honest professional advice without the pressures of a large franchise influencing my decisions. I will tell you straight if I can help you or not.
You can expect knowledgeable advice in such areas as financing, contracts, negotiating, marketing, and a proven track record of 29 years. Satisfied clients not only come back to me; they recommend their friends.
Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home
Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.
Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.
