It's not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust during the whole process and to always give you up-to-date information.  My mission is to provide the most professional, informative, loyal, and dedicated real estate service in the industry.  Below you will find my Professional Profile and Bio.

Nick’s Specialties:  Exclusive Buyer or Exclusive Seller Representation but never both at the same time – it’s called Single Agency.  Also, I’m an expert when it comes to Relocation, Short-Sales and Staging of homes or condos.

As a Premier real estate Broker in the Mid Coast area (Portland to Camden) Maine, I'm here to provide you with all the resources and information you need to Buy or Sell your next Home, Condo or Investment property in Maine.

I have had extensive training and experience in representing Buyers and Sellers since 1983, I am a CNE (Certified Negotiation Expert), have held the CRS (Certified Residential Specialist) and the ABR® (Accredited Buyer's Representative for 20+ years).  I have been a full time Broker for over 34 years and I am confident that I can offer you the experience, knowledge base and tools that come with my 36 years of being a Realtor.  This along with my two books (one for Buyers & one for Sellers - click on 'Buying' or 'Selling' tabs to view the book covers) will be an invaluable asset for you to rely on during your sale or purchase of your next home.
