A Word from our Founder

A message from The Maine Real Estate Network's founder, Loni Graiver:

Loni Graiver and Family

In the midst of the worst housing crisis since the Great Depression, The Maine Real Estate Network was born in 2008. My wife and I felt there was a clear opportunity to help homebuyers and sellers in the great state of Maine navigate the growing complexity of real estate transactions during these times. We observed out-of-state real estate franchises focusing more on profit and less on the needs of homeowners and buyers alike. We felt that Maine needed a large, independent real estate agency to provide its real estate professionals with higher compensation, no fees and, most importantly, the freedom and flexibility to help people get to the closing table.

In our initial mission statement we felt that by 2015 we would have over 500 real estate professionals under our umbrella and at least $500 million in closed transactions. We exceeded that aggressive goal. The Maine Real Estate Network has plans to cover Presque Isle to Kittery, Bethel to Camden, and everywhere in between. We will do so by providing the most amazing real estate experience to our clients possible. We will do so by outworking and out thinking our competition. We sell the greatest product in the world- real estate. We sell a product that has created more wealth for Americans than any other. We will dominate the landscape of residential real estate transactions because we are local, independent and simply better at what we do than anyone else out there. While we employ the best technologies available, The Maine Real Estate Network understands that it is our highly trained real estate professionals who will provide our clients with the service they need; that is our ultimate strength.

“Creating Relationships for Life” is our slogan and we live by it every day. I am proud to own The Maine Real Estate Network and am honored by the real estate professionals who have chosen to affiliate with us and become a part of my extended family. The employees who run our day-to-day operations are second to none, and I am forever grateful for their hard work and loyalty. Through The Maine Real Estate Network, we “pay it forward” by investing in local charities and organizations. In the past holiday season alone, our agents collectively donated to nearly 100 charities. As an endurance sponsor of Maine’s Tri For A Cure, we are also a large donor to The Maine Cancer Foundation.

We love living in the state of Maine, and we wake up every day excited to sell “The way life should be."
