The town of Gorham is a quintessential Maine town sharing both a rich history and a bright future. This is primarily the result of its unique location in Southern Maine.  Gorham is within a very short commute to Portland and all that Maine’s largest city has to offer yet is beloved for still retaining all the characteristics of a quiet country town to include lush rolling fields, farms, heavily wooded areas and wide open spaces.  Gorham’s residents enjoy a vibrant Village Center where numerous shops and restaurants are within walking distance of the village post office and supermarket.  Gorham Village is also home to a University of Southern Maine campus and to all three of Gorham’s well respected Elementary, Middle & High Schools.  Gorham Real Estate is a complementary mixture of well-preserved antique homes and newer well-planned neighborhoods that strive to protect a small town feel.  Gorham is well known for the volunteerism of its residents and for cultural opportunities, with countless art events each year.  Gorham has recently been featured on several Top 10 lists for the best places to live in Maine.  This is no secret to the thousand of new residents that have made Gorham their home over the past decade, making Gorham one of the fastest growing municipalities in Maine.  Whether you choose to make Gorham or one of her surrounding communities your next home, we look forward to serving you.

About Ernest

I obtained my first real estate license in Maine in 1996 and over the years I have moved to and obtained sales agent or associate broker licenses in Maryland, Virginia and Massachusetts before moving back to Maine in 2007 where I re-qualified for an associate broker’s license. In April of 2016 I obtained my broker’s license.

My whole life I have been involved in rental real estate as my father owned a 30 unit apartment building on Maine Street, Westbrook. I learned much about handling crises, repairs, contractors and tenants, as well as managing the business as a whole. I am the owner of that same building today.

I live in Westbrook, am married (19 years) with one son who is a fine young man soon to be graduating from Westbrook High School. My terrific wife, Susan, after 20 years serving the country in one role or another left the federal government when we moved to Maine and is now an Associate Broker. 

My wife and I are volunteers for the Westbrook Music Boosters. My hobby has been playing pool but not so much now as we are busy with business and family. I am an “also ran” for mayor of Westbrook in which I came in a respectable 3rd place in a field of 3 a few years back.
