Jim Shaw is a native of the beautiful State of Maine and more specifically of Mars Hill which is in the Heartland of Aroostook County, the largest and northernmost county in Maine. Mars Hill Mountain is located in this community and is where the first 50 star flag in the U.S. was raised on July 4th, 1960, when Hawaii became a state.
After graduating from Gordon College in Wenham, Massachusetts with a BA in pre-med Biology, he moved to Aroostook County to continue his family's tradition of growing the famous "Maine" potatoes on several family farms. The operation also consisted of "the best little 'packin-plant' in Maine" as well as a brokerage firm.
While serving as a school board member in his local school district, he saw a need to bring about reform in the educational system, and more specifically the teaching profession. He felt that schools needed to be more "exciting" and "fun" for kids especially in the field of Science and Math. This led to him spending eight wonderful years as a middle/high school Science/Math teacher.
Jim also was the President and CEO of a network marketing company which helped introduce the WebTV to many families all across America. This product brought the powerful and exciting internet to families in their homes right on their television sets.
He has the innate ability to create "excitement" and "fun" in whatever he is involved with. His buying and selling skills have been honed through his diversified background which centers on his desire to help people.
He also operates and owns a Christmas Tree Farm where beautiful Balsam Fir Trees are well managed and groomed for the Market place.
Jim brings his ™energy™ and love of helping people to the exciting World of Real Estate. He understands that one of the most prized possessions on earth is a person™s Home. This is why after two extremely successful years at Aroostook Real Estate in Presque Isle Jim decided to open his own Real Estate Company in the town where he lives and the town he loves in January of 2003. His company is Northern Maine Realty, originally located on Main Street in Mars Hill and offers exclusive Buyer or Seller Representation for clients who desire professional, competent marketing services.
Volume of sales has been consistent since he opened the company and over 8 Million in sales was achieved in 2006. When the opportunity was available to open a branch office in Houlton, in the mid part of 2006, Jim was pleased to have Sam Henderson come on board and manage that office. Sam is a native of Houlton and offers a gentle, aggressive, competitive spirit which is bringing him great success in the real estate arena. Another excellent agent from ReMax, Greg Miller, joined the Northern Maine Realty Team and works with Sam at the Houlton Branch Office. Together Sam and Greg are dominating the Southern Aroostook marketing area with their marketing skills, honesty and hard work ethic in helping both Sellers and Buyers achieve their objectives.
In 2016, Jim purchased the former WEGP building strategically located just South of the city of Presque Isle. This nicely appointed office is equipped with 55 inch televisions where Buyers can view All Aroostook County Listings (regardless of Company) in comfort. Jim's wife, Debbie, retired from nursing after 36 years and obtained her sales agent license to manage the new Presque Isle Office.
An exciting feature that JIm offers is Drone photography of his featured listings. The Houlton Branch office also offers Drone photography with breathtaking photos to enhance your listing. Whether "selling your home" or "buying a home", Northern Maine Realty's agents are equipped with the latest technology to help you realize your goals and dreams. Put their "legendary service" to "work" for you!
