About

A little about Larry…

I am a native Mainer, serving Midcoast Mainers – and wannabe Mainers – to find satisfying solutions to their residential real estate needs. Not many REALTORS® have the depth of knowledge of the local marketplace and negotiating “best deals” …that I have acquired over the last 30 years.

As an aside, I have additional expertise in providing commercial and investment real estate services.  In 1984, I earned the “CCIM” designation by pursing many years of specialized education and amassing millions of dollars of commercial sales to qualify for this coveted designation.    There are only a few thousand CCIMs in the country. The designation is similar to having a CPA suffix after your name, but for commercial realty/investment expertise, rather than professional accountancy. I have acquired a noteworthy track record for selling large commercial properties and businesses in the Midcoast Maine area… as well as occasioning  leasings of well-located office space.

By way of personal trivia, let me share with you that I’m now in my seventies and live a very active lifestyle. I’m a graduate of the University of Maine at Orono and have a Master’s Degree from the Wharton Business School. Before becoming a REALTOR®, I was the City Manager of Bath, Topsham and Wiscasset. I am a coastal boater, private pilot, fisherman, professional photographer, outdoorsman, watercolorist, amateur chef, Tai Chi-Yoga practitioner, dog trainer and bird hunter. Oh, yes, I’m a father of four children and grandfather to six.

I really would like you to consider having me as your exclusive broker, if you ever decide to buy real estate in Maine (or anywhere in the world, for that matter) or to sell your property. My listing agreements are always cancelable anytime and for any reason!

 

LET ME HELP YOU PLAN YOUR

VACATION TRIP TO MAINE

 

You don’t get to be a native Mainer in your seventies, without having been in every nook and corner of this state!

Truly, I’ve done it all and I’ve done it with little hassle, usually without any stress, with and without children in tow, in inclement weather and in beautiful weather, hiking up the mountains and along the ocean ridge trails, exploring the coastal islands, sailing the coast, kayaking the island trails, riding the coastal ferries, paddling the Allagash Waterway, climbing Mt. Kathadin, catching lobsters, beachcombing, doing photographic safaris, raking steamer clams out of the mud, seasonal hunting, eating at the best of restaurants and the least expensive of eateries, attending all of the fairs, inland fly fishing, salt water fishing, camping, rv-ing, patronizing the summer theatres, attending all the museums and art galleries,  having season tickets for the Portland Symphony, shopping the outlet stores and attending all the best of our sporting events.

Why do I tell you that?  Because, I could be a valuable resource to help you plan your visit to Maine and experience the best of Maine without disappoint, discouragement or mental disruption! Hmmmmm…. Interested in learning more?

 

If you would like to have me suggest a vacation itinerary for your visit to Maine… or you’d like my thoughts on transitioning your home and business to Maine… or you have accepted a new job in Maine and need to comfortably “settle in…” please let me help you think all of the many options through so that your “coming to Maine” will be a pleasant and satisfying experience!

 

 

Why would I do that? To sell your some real estate? That’s hardly my primary motivation. More importantly, I love our state, I’m very proud of our state and it pleases me to welcome newcomers to our state. Earning a real estate commission is secondary. It’s more satisfying for me to make new friends and be a comfortable shoe horn for your ambitious interests.

So that’s pretty straight forward and a bit confessional. I’m at the “give back time of my life!” I expect to continue living a very full and very active lifestyle for the next twenty years.
