MY BACKGROUND

"I was born and raised in the Camden Area and proud to be a native 'Mainah'."

 

Elizabeth Gindel The New England Real Estate Co. Agent

Being part of three generations of Home Builders and Real Estate agents, I have to say building and buying homes is a genetic passion. From an early age, I was helping out on construction sites and later with building inspections.  Now, as I help my clients purchase and sell, I find that this inclusive background truly helps in counseling my clients with their real estate decisions.

For me, there is no "Home" like Maine.  The diversity of visitors coming together with our community makes a unique relaxed environment. I have traveled through many other states, and lived in Alaska for a short period of time, but nowhere else have I experienced the warm smile or gentle nod from a stranger, or had the pleasure of a quick chat on the street corner with a neighbor.

My clients soon learn that I love my job and always give attention to personal as well as professional details.  My generational background in real estate can be counted on to provide you with access to vital home building and home buying options.  You can trust me to find the perfect home for you and your family's life style!

The Coast of Maine is an area that is rich in family, town and state history, but it also provides opportunities to make an impact on global issues.  In the small town of Hope, I was the Barn Volunteer Director for Hope Elephants, a rehabilitation and educational facility dedicated to caring for aging elephants and also to educate the need for wildlife conservation and awareness.  I lead and taught volunteers, as well as visitors, not only about elephants, but also about the need for wildlife conservation.  

My husband and I are very dedicated foster cat/kitten volunteers.  We have been fostering in our home since 2012, for our local animal shelter P.A.W.S. Animal Adoption Center.  We also have 2 rescue dogs, Ollie a Anatolian Shepherd and Hope, a German Shepherd along with several cats of our own that we adopted through P.A.W.S, as well.  If you have pets or look forward to having them in your new home, I will know exactly what your pet-friendly needs are!  Visit www.pawsadoption.org

My volunteer work also continued as a volunteer on the Walk MS Committee and I worked closely with Walk MS coordinator for the National MS Society and other committee members to create awareness and donor support for the Camden Walk MS that was held every year in April. ”Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that disrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body.”  (*Cited from the National MS Society 2018.)

And in conjunction with that, I also was Team Captain for “Got Some Nerve”.  Our efforts in fundraising contributed towards a cure for MS.  You can find my Team on Facebook: @GotSomeNerve

For almost a year I had the pleasure of being a Co-Facilitator for New Hope for Women, in their “Time For Change”, Batterer Intervention Program.  It was an amazing experience, and one that I hope to be able to continue in the future.  New Hope for Women is a non-profit organization that offers support to people who are affected by domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking.  New Hope for Women also provides educational resources to assist our communities in creating a safer and healthier future.

A few of my favorite things to do and enjoy when I can, is working on my family history.  I have done extensive work in researching my ancestral lines.  Most of my heritage can be found here on the coast of Maine.  I find Genealogy to be very fascinating and very much like a puzzle waiting to be pieced together.  With that comes studying Maine and Local History, Maine has deep roots in history and how it’s role has played out to become what the Mid-Coast area is today.  I also enjoy antiques and antiquing.  This has filled my heart with wonder and awe, ever since I was little.  Having a piece and knowing when it was made, and what it could have seen, if it could of, and the stories it would want to tell.  Speaking of the old, I enjoy hearing, reading, and learning about Maine Hauntings and ghost stories; I find it to be very intriguing.  Living here in the oldest part of the country, you are bound to come across numerous recorded accounts of sightings, hauntings and lore. I’ve found that one of my ancestors was part of one encounter off the coast, in “Wreck Island, Ghosts on the Coast of Maine” written by Carol Olivieri Schulte. 

As I started writing down my hobbies, I see synonymously how intertwined my interests are.

Lastly, what brings joy to my inner spirit and peace, is working outside in my gardens.  If you have dreamed of having gardens surrounding your new home, you can be sure that I can help you find an ideal home with what will work best for you.
