Market Update May 9, 2016

Wow.  There I was writing about how the lackluster winter was keeping the market at bay for certain segments, including single-family homes and upper end price ranges.  Within days after that post a true whirlwind of activity began, so here I am updating the market some two and a half months later and feeling a tad guilty that I didn’t …

Market Update, February 28, 2016

sduplessis Real Estate

I have been selling real estate in the Sunday River region for nearly 11 years now and have consistently been a so-called “top producer”—an uncomfortable though sometimes necessary term for me when I want to add validity to my knowledge of the market.  And this season my experience comes in to play when talking with my clients (particularly my Sellers) …

Snow!

sduplessis Real Estate

Last month I was ruminating about the unusually mild December and lack of snow but it seems in the blink of an eye winter arrived, fueled by midweek snowstorm during the holiday week and a return to colder temperatures.  It was the perfect opportunity for Sunday River to shine, opening terrain here there and everywhere and in between cranking out …

Let It Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow. Please?

It’s been a decade since I left my post as the Director of Communications for Sunday River, but a season doesn’t go by where I imagine what current successor in my former role might be dreaming up for messaging for the day. It usually happens on my morning walk as I look from my neighborhood to the slopes for signs …

Market Update, October 26 2015

Since the last market update, T2 and Sunday Punch have been covered top to bottom in snow and the 2015 buzz word is “snowliage”.   Sunday River was able to open for some of its best, earliest conditions in my memory (which dates back 15 years in Newry). The second half of the summer and early fall marked another robust period …

Year Two

sduplessis Real Estate

It was just a little more than two years ago (October 15 to be exact) that I was full of anticipation about opening the doors to Mountain Real Estate Company. I was nervous as heck about leaving the security and familiarity of my longtime employer, Sunday River Resort, yet rightfully excited about the possibilities of becoming solely accountable for my …

Custom furniture on display

This beautiful Rustic Red Cedar Side Table was handcrafted by John Rosen and is on display with several other pieces at the Mountain Real Estate Company office at 227 Skiway Road in Newry.  Here are John’s words: I first met Susan and Mike at the 25th annual Bethel Art Fair (July 2014) when they showed interest in a coffee table …

Market Update June 10 2015

sduplessis Real Estate

It has been far too long since I provided a Market Update, the first delay triggered by web hosting issues and the second, well, I was busy selling real estate! I now have six months of activity to report since the last update was way back in early January. I should also mention before we get started that I will …

Season Ender

sduplessis Real Estate

This weekend will mark the official end of the season of skiing and riding at Sunday River, and by all accounts it was another successful year for the resort.  Here at Mountain Real Estate Company we are pleased with our own success as we enter our 20th month of business.  Personally I have a whole new appreciation of all business …

Market Update, January 9, 2015

As I wait for the Red Bull Frozen Rush fun to begin—clearly a distraction from my desk when the action starts—I’ll provide a quick market update. It’s a little shorter timeframe than usual, but with a robust market I don’t want there to be too much lag time on reporting. As always, the update includes land, single-families and condos in …
