About Tim Fortin
Tim grew up in Hallowell and has worked throughout Maine, Northern New England and Eastern Canada which provides him with a unique perspective on real estate in the area combined with his blend of sales, marketing, construction and energy conservation background.
His work experience provides a broad range of knowledge that has proven to be a huge asset to his clients. As a former State Licensed Energy Auditor for Central Maine Power and Manager of Facilities & Purchasing for a large local bank he provides a variety of skills to sellers and buyers that are virtually unmatched throughout Kennebec County.

Having the ability to communicate the good and bad about a property saves his clients time and money in the long run and both are huge items when it comes to buying and selling property of any type.
When asked what sets him apart from other agents it comes down to communication, resourcefulness, organization and availability. He is a creative thinker and his negotiating skills and ability to problem solve on the fly are invaluable in coming to satisfactory outcomes with his transactions. Tim believes in a higher level of service and it starts by making himself available at the strangest of hours and always finding a way to make each transaction enjoyable. Whether Tim’s helping a buyer find the “right home” that meets their needs or putting together creative listings that provide a unique on-line presence, he will go the extra mile for you in representing your best interests as it’s not always about the best deal?it’s about the right one!
