Eavesdropping, maybe you don't like to have to do it at the Piggly Wiggly check out with the person in front and behind you on a cell phone but real estate callers may be different.

See if you can relate to the Florida Maine real estate buyer who was originally from Massachusetts that called our office this morning.

Sold lock, stock and barrel to get out of Boston, to get to Naples, Florida. Then sold out there and moved up to Port Charlotte.

But now in retirement misses the four seasons, wants it not to be so hot hot hot in summers so Maine is looking pretty attractive.

Where in Florida he is racing to this air conditioned car, to house, to shopping and making him feel like he and his wife are living in a grocery store meat cooler.

Too hot and wants to buy more, larger Maine land, have some space. Be a hobby farmer.

Not set the world on fire with crack of dawn to sunset dusk laboring round the clock. But to know what he and his wife are eating. They can, preserve food they grow now and just want all the way around healthy living on a larger scale. So Aroostook County comes up on radar on search engine front page indexes. And the connection is made.maine four wheelers view photo

You learn his philosophy on life, how he voted, what he is after, what his stance on gun control and everything in between.

He has carried a conceal gun since 24 years of age.

Skeet shoots, likes to hunt.

Worried about the country and for lots of reasons wants to invest in the place with the space.

And friendly people that look out for each other.

In a land of no terrorist targets.

Over reacting or justifiably scared about the state of affairs in the country?

You can flip the coin on that one and have your own opinions.

All he knows is his Florida home now on the market has had the same buyer tour it twice and he is sensing here comes an maine cemetary veterans us flags photooffer.

So he has been on line scoping out Maine living blog posts.

Lots of real estate blogs about Maine property listings.

Wherever the blogs on Maine real estate come up in the systematic search.

Where we are, how it rolls can be seen so easy on show and tell, on demand local community videos.

He likes that. So now moving into the second phase of the two step.

Enjoys what he sees, hears, reads about the area, the flavor of the local dynamics and philosophy of Northern Maine.

Shifting to buy existing farm property in Maine.

Or changes gears from that direction if nothing trips his trigger for existing property listings.

And just farm land, wood land without the buildings will be considered.

Built five boats so knows his way around a tool box.

But we also talked about modular homes.

He thought they are all dragged in from Pennsylvania.

I also point out they are made across the border in New Brunswick Canada.

Lots of pen pal emails, salt and peppered with phone call conversations means plenty can be done before the couple actually arrives.

They will have already seen the area, heard about the properties with video tours before they arrive.

Making good use of their time.

Making better informed decisions before actually setting foot in Aroostook County, the Crown of Maine.

He used to build boats, his Dad had a machine shop, the couple's two son's are in law enforcement.

One a state trooper, the other a department detective.

Have served him up some emails with attachments of properties from the listing box of chocolates that could work for him.

And the ping pong back and forth happens as we zero in on properties.

And I ask him how is the real estate home sale on his end going.

Maybe helping him with some pointers about the process that helps that sale close.

So he and the wife can get up to kick some Maine properties, listings tires.

And to generate new property to consider that will fit his needs in our matchmaking process.

To find the right fit for his needs, considering the size of his wallet.

Boy I love my Maine real estate job and where I live.

Maine, make the call, check out the place called Vacationland.

Eavesdropping is a great idea.  It looks like this buyer may be moving back sooner than later.

Joan ... I like your prediction. Right after that call, phone rings, fellow from outside Philadelphia. Same story about over crowding, not feeling safe and he reloads his own ammo for hunting. His supplier of materials is named Hodgdon. He Google's the name Hodgdon and suddenly he is looking over a property on the US Canadian border in Hodgdon, town of same name in Maine. Another conversation with some common themes with earlier caller. He will be up in March to tramp land but in the meantime, videos of the area events, the property listings mean he can do so much on line. He can see, hear about the property before he gets here with video that work hard around the clock. Beaming the information 24/7. No matter what the weather here, there or what time of the day or night.

This is the property, land in Hodgdon Maine that caused him to call, helped make the connection with Richard. Wide open 107 acres, that's Canada on the left side of the road and you can own it all in the $60's! View too!

Laura ... Thanks, not wild about being part of private conversations but it happens in the ten items or less aisle. 

Kwee... People, you, me, like stories. Reality. And in the audience there are segments that raise their hand and say "me too". It is how we make the phone ring off the hook, email server to heat up red hot. List, market, sell. Repeat. The real estate dog and pony routine.

You make all of us wish for a vacation home in Maine. A retirement home might even be better.
