Our Story

The Flaherty Group’s history dates back to  the early 1980s, when Tim and Marie first entered the real estate business.  In 1987, they opened up Tim Flaherty Real Estate, which they successfully owned and operated for 20 years.

Their two children Michelle and Dan worked in the office growing up—filing papers, making photocopies, answering phones, and ultimately earning their real estate licenses at ages 20 and 18.

In 2007, Tim Flaherty Real Estate was acquired by Prudential Northeast Properties of Bangor—a highly respected network of eight offices owned by the Norris family.  Our new affiliation with Prudential has enhanced our network of agents and provided us with access to the best tools and programs available.

Today, Tim and Marie work together as the Flaherty Group, combining their talents and backgrounds to give each client the service they deserve.
