Historic 2 Bay View Street building undergoes extensive renovations to re-open in the heart of Camden
Earlier this year, the iconic 2 Bay View Street building, met a significant reconstruction milestone from the summers’ renovations to bring back the historic harbor and main street / route one famous corner storefront once again in the heart of downtown Camden.
This iconic building which survived two town fires (the great fire of 1892 and the harbor fire of 1935) had been home to many beloved past Camden businesses including first as a bank, then as the “J.W. Bowers” plumbing shop and later as the “A. H. Parsons” and “F. L. Spears” plumbing shops followed by the “Jack Frost” store, then home to the very first location of “Maine Sport” and of course in most recent years, the beloved “Unique One” Sweater and Yarn store.
“We’re proud to have chosen and completed the renovations on the historic 2 Bay View Street building and in choosing this iconic site to base our new real estate brokerage, The New England Real Estate Company, serving the tri-counties of Mid-coast Maine in Knox, Waldo and Lincoln counties. We look forward to welcoming the community to see the transformation of this historic downtown store location during our community open house activities over the weekend of the 25th annual Christmas By The Sea weekend December 1 – 4, and through the holiday weeks leading up to Christmas. This building location truly represents the charm that defines Camden,” said A. Flint Decker, President & Designated Broker for The New England Real Estate Company.
“The 2 Bay View Street building sits at the top and start of the historic Camden waterfront harbor district, welcoming many first-time visitors to the landmark mid-coast area and helping make the first impression to them of an active and vibrant quintessential New England village town and having the honor to bring back this building as well as house our new real estate brokerage offices was a once in a lifetime opportunity”, said Decker.

We first met Flint Decker on a visit to Camden in September 2012. At the time, we were looking into buying farmland in the area. From the very beginning, Flint was extraordinarily friendly and helpful. He offered us invaluable advice and was generous with his time and resources. In February of 2013, we decided we were set on buying land near Camden. We gave Flint a call and he immediately welcomed us back to his office for a visit. We discussed our needs with Flint and he once again provided [...]
In September of 2012, we were looking to relocate to Maine and as we visited Camden, we stopped into Flint's office to discuss possibilities. Flint listened to our requirements and resources then promptly came up with several homes for sale to look at. The Village at Rockport suited our needs completely being new construction and the added convenience of being a condominium community. Now 14 months later we are proud owners of a new cottage in the Village of Rockport. All with [...]
We recently brought a waterfront home with the help of The New England Real Estate Company and Flint Decker was specifically the broker that guided the entire process for us. We lived previously in the Northwest in Oregon and Washington for quite awhile prior to settling on Midcoast Maine. In my past, I purchased a considerable amount of real estate on the West Coast. I bring this up because I have had numerous experiences with Realtors taking short term thinking attitudes in [...]
Across the homes and cities I’ve lived in, there has only been one agent I’ve done business with whom I trust implicitly, and in Camden, Maine, Flint is it! Since Flint has returned back to Maine, I have had the opportunity in getting to know Flint quite closely and I had the privilege of working with Flint as my realtor when I sold my South Thomaston antique & interior gifts store and building in 2012. Previously, I had never felt my property ever received a professional [...]
First impressions mean alot! - My first meeting with Flint was a chance encounter the summer when Flint was restoring the 2 Bay View Street building in Camden and he was preparing to open his new real estate office and company, The New England Real Estate Company, when curiosity got the better of me. In our first conversation we talked about his business and customer service goals and business philosophy. Before leaving I asked if I could be his first listing in Camden and his company, and [...]
We met Flint Decker on a visit to Camden in July 2013 which was the first time back to Camden since the mid 1970's.We were starting to look for a vacation house and Flint talked with us for about an hour and inquired about our wants and needs. The next day he lined up five properties to view. By the end of the week, we had a contract on a house that we eventually purchased even though we thought it would take a few years to find such a property. Flint has a wonderful way about him. He is [...]
