Residing in Portland since 1991, I have been an active Maine Realtor and licensed broker since 2002. Previous professional experience includes more than thirty years as a successful merchant of luxury goods, holding senior sales, marketing and merchandising positions with international brands. Portland's West End is home, with life experience in California, New York City, Italy, France and my native Indiana. Longtime friendships, exploration of the vibrant cultural and business life of Portland, as well as time with family, our West Highland terrier, hands on gardening, affiliations and interests in architecture and design, music, art, food and travel, define my leisure time.
Real Estate brokerage is all about people, introducing a cherished quality of life we enjoy here in Maine, and the reward of new and long-time personal relationships. I believe informed buyers and sellers, and an attentive real estate professional, is the secret to successful transactions…experienced counsel to desirable results. Client-centered service, comprehensive market knowledge, creative marketing skills, and a commitment to excellence at every level is my goal.
Maintaining confidentiality when representing seller and buyer clients, I am driven to fulfill expectations in a timely manner. Clients selling and buying Maine real estate have realized successful transactions of distinctive homes, land and waterfront properties along the coast and lakefronts, many counting as major sales, often local records. Adding value, defining and successfully marketing and discovering client properties frames my daily activities.

I have done business - and have enjoyed a friendship - with Bill Davisson for some ten years, since my wife and I began thinking of downsizing and putting our family house in the Western Promenade neighborhood of Portland on the market. His observations, suggestions, counsel and advice enabled us to sell it quickly and well, soon after we decided to list it with him. Bill, knowing our needs going forward, identified and secured for us our current condominium, also in the West End and close to the Prom. Representing us as buyers made the process efficient and pleasant. We would highly recommend working with Bill to anyone looking to buy or sell a high-end property in Portland.
Thank you so much for a most pleasant and productive time, showing me around a (for me at that time) unfamiliar coast. From a professional standpoint, it has been a very good match and great experience leading to the purchase of two pieces of property on a foreign shore (an idyllic island in Maine). You have helped us a great deal, advising us in the choice of legal counsel, names of architects and professionals, always insuring the process for us as a non US citizen a whole lot more comfortable and secure. You are a great professional that listens to his customers rather than selling what suits him best or is easiest. The fact that we’re still in the same place (and loving it) is the best proof that you guided us to the right spot. And by the way, I am aware that the time spent with me may not have had the best time/earnings ratio you may have wished for. I can assure you that I have never invited a broker to dinner (full stop), let alone 5 years after the sale. So you must have done something right.
It is with pleasure and appreciation that we recommend William Davisson as a resident sales Realtor. He was most conscientious, attentive to our every need, gracious in every way and ultimately successful in the sale of our home on Menikoe Point., Falmouth Foreside, Maine. His guidance and wise counsel throughout the process was invaluable. We highly recommend him.
Bill Davisson sold my parent's home on Southport Island in June of 2008. Most everyone in their later years have experienced real estate transactions. From quite a few experiences, I must say, the "adventure" I had with Bill was not only astounding but extremely professional, enlightening and enjoyable. At every step Bill could project what was coming and prepared accordingly. With his experience he headed-off personal issues, discrepancies, and small crisis. A smoother transaction I have never experienced! Integrity and character belonged to our leader and all involved followed suit, including a very sensitive co-broker! I'm proud to know Bill Davisson and he will be the first I recommend to friends and acquaintances. He presently is working on a referral and I do hope I can assist with many more.
