Maine Real Estate For Sale !


The Very First Time...Heck Yes I was Nervous, Anxious, Inexperienced...But It Was Exciting.

Do you remember your first time?

Everything was new and different but you were young, full of vim andsunset moon rise, drews lake dusk vigor. Ready to take on the world. As I approached the Maine lake cottage,  and fumbled, breathing hard and finally got the car door with the magnetic sign stuck to it open, I noticed her "layout". She was 36-24-36....

(Bring up the Commodores "Brick House" song in the background please) and I gulped.

     Here I go..this is it. Not really worried about performance anxiety, I was ready. But this was the first time, solo, for all the marbles.


I knocked on the door and Mr. Varney answered with a smile.

Come on in, let me show you around. She was 36 feet long, 24 feet wide and roughly 36 feet from the edge of Drews Lake in Linneus Maine. (Record stratching sound as Commodore's "She's a Bricccckkkkk Hhhhhouse" song has needle ripped across vinyl..then silence, a pregnant pause.) Hey, wait a minute..what did you think I was talking about? This was my first Maine real estate listing back in the spring of 1980. A ranch style lake camp down over a hill a goat would have to concentrate long and hard on to negotiate. Going down was easy, the climb out of there, not so much fun...even for a young Houlton Maine real estate broker in his early 20's.

     The owner said he picked me because I was new, wanted to give me a chance. He had just gotten new glasses and said he went to a brand spanking new doctor for the same reason. What was your first experience all about...the very first real estate listing you ever took? To start your career, to market and sell? No doubt you resold the same place as you stuck with the profession. This lake camp for $7500 was something we resold four times over the following 15 years. Multiple sales until the current owner indicated it would only be sold again when they took her feet first out of the back door. Hope the ambulance attendants have hiking books and know a little technical climbing skills though..this one was down over the bank...on the side of Drews Mountain in Linneus ME.
