Maine Real Estate For Sale !


Active Rain Blog Post 3000 (Whew) Maine Real Estate, Live And Local.

houlton maine real estate office photo

A lot of recycled electrons used in creating our Active Rain blog posts.

Many types of property listings in Maine exposed in a good healthy way.

The low cost real estate and small town values of living in a friendly Maine town promoted extensively.

One reblog ever, no micro waved market reports, zip for an image and a one liner passed off as a fake AR gold star blog post.

All home made, with sleeves rolled up, as much heart, soul, passion as could be mustered up at the time. For electron flow release, another media stream edition cast into the wild blue yonder for eyeballs, eardrums in the Global Village.

As the 3000 posts on Active Rain blog odometer turns over, cylinder tumblers roll, click, lock into place, thought the topic for this post should be "they". 

Without you, me in a Maine small town, there would be no community.

Maine real estate is not just rows and rows of streets without the people.

That is a back lot, vacant Hollywood movie set waiting for its next production to get funding. The script approved, financing in place and off the ground here we go, on with the show. Break a leg. Said in a good way.

In a small Maine town, everything is real not silver screen fantasy. You and I are the "they".

If you hear in conversation "they ought to do something", "they need to do this, should do that" and "somebody better aroostook county seat houlton maine court house photoblah blah blah before it's too late", stop. Pause. Chose your words carefully in response.

Point out, gently remind that you and I are the "they".

The "they" they refer to are dead. Gone and buried. Outside of town a half mile and six feet under. Given a proper burial years ago.

You and I have moved up to the new "they".

It is up to us to see change. To take responsibility for the here and now. To move forward.

And to not lament, whine how it used to be.

How wouldn't it be nice if everything was like years ago? It's not. Don't get comfortable.

Splash on the cold water. Wake up and live in today.

To face challenges, realities, attack problems not people or personalities.

aroostook county court house, houlton maine photoTo come up with a plan, solutions that involves everyone getting a part, having a role. 

Overspending on the national, state, local levels and a blind eye to mounting, suffocating debt that lead shoes pulls you under water to the bottom. 

We all need to get high school skinny on our spending. And for expenditures we have to prioritize, making way for pain to be expected. 

(Pat pat) Hop up on the exam table covered in paper. 

This is gonna hurt but don't turn your head and look away.

Bite down on something solid and without being put to sleep, like bullet removal in the spaghetti westerns, hang on.

We're gonna all get through this and live to die another day. Or end up being propped up over by the corner juke box. Holding something stiff in my hand, boots full of sand. And no, not all my rowdy friends are coming over tonight. Not tonight.

Today is brought to your by the number 3000.

The word "they" and the letter "R", the hardest by far working letter in the entire alphabet. Listing, marketing,  selling (repeat) and oh yeah, trading to Houlton Maine area properties. Call, click, email, text, come visit us. Maine, don't keep her waiting. Get here quick as you can and see the space, meeting the small town Maine friendly people. Learn what's been missing so far in your life.

Wow, you've been busy, Andrew. And committed. And consistent. Al things a good Realtor should be.

3000 posts is quite a lot. I wonder if I have even written half that many. I will have to check! Kudos.

Wow, that's a lot of writing about Maine real estate. It's easy to guess who's showing up in the Maine Google rankings.

3,000 post is impressive.  nice going.

Lori ... Content, fresh content for never ending appetite search engines, and Maine real estate buyers, sellers. Plus I am one big personal fan of where I am some kinda lucky to live... Maine.

Lottie ... The properties, listings come from a healthy inventory. You can not sell meat from an empty wagon. And promotion, from blogging, doing video and managing several online sites means it is not all kept a secret. Otherwise it would be like flirting at a girl in the dark. No so effective, poor results. Turn the lights on low at least. Or light a candle or two.

ERS ... It's not numbers, it's quality that counts. Size does not matter, but individual effort to be heard above the crowd noise does. Blog as if only one person in the audience. There is, just many "ones" but you won't attract half the attention if you blog above their heads, over them and not sitting on a local diner stool for ham and eggs conversational. Or helpful, time and gas saving.  We are people, not robots. With ups and downs, twists and turns in life like everyone in the audience. Find your voice, be who you are, no spin, hype, shell games or smoke/mirror carnival tricks. Be honest.

Tammie ... Half our blogs are show and tell about the area first. The videos really over come the stumbler that hey, you fellas are 8 hours from Providence Rhode Island, 6 hours from Boston, etc. Real estate and area video delivers all hours of the day or night so so well. Any agent, broker, REALTOR needs, and properties deserve more than local exposure. Great reach, with marketing frequency, videos are what the audience wants. Give them what they want or some other little red hen in the real estate market will.

The fist time I really came to appreciate stars in the sky was my first night living/working in Denmark, ME. Since then, I don't see the shooting stars here in the DFW area and it's rare I see the brilliant stars up in the universe but I'm happy to see stars on AR bloggers.

Congratulations on the well deserved golden star on AR!

You are the AR wordsmith extraordinaire! I have enjoyed nearly all 3K of your posts (I must have missed one or two here or there by my count) but if your intention was to make me want to go to Maine and buy real estate your have succeeded in every way imaginable!

3000 posts are a lot of recycled electrons! LOL Tighten our belts; we're all going to get high school skinny (if only). Really enjoyed your post and video. Congratulations on the gold star! Andrew, I believe you are the hardest working (R) in Maine.

Wow, I'm about half way there.  And while i have reblogged a few times, just a handful and with good reason to highlight new folks, help someone reach a goal or spread the word on social media of something outrageous that needing addressing.

Congratulations on your 3000 and I'm looking forward to reading more.

Andrew -- I've reblogged a few, rehashed and regurgitated more words than I care to admit so I can recognize the labor and effort to deliver quality content on a consistent basis -- congratulations on this achievement -- maybe the cold keeps you on your toes too.

Today your real estate office is not fixed based, not 9-5 and taking the whole nine yards on the road, to the buyer and seller wherever they are means all of us need more online platforms. To work together, to feed the media streams. Active Rain should not be all she wrote. Sweet marketing music means more than an AR solo and think there, done. Have blog components on two primary real estate sites, a Wordpress more personal postings channel too. But video, that is the cat's meow for making the email server red hot, the phone to not be cold and silent. Wake, shake, rattle and roll with the steady hum videos generate for local area events and the property listings you market.
