Personal Profile - Renee Hudgens

After 20 years in retail sales and 10 of it owning a well known furniture store -Chez Renee Home Furnishings, I felt it was time to get out of the retail world of home furnishings and sell the whole house instead.

I was recently named 2016 Realtor of the year for the Greater Bangor Association of Realtors. I have the pleasure of working side by side with my eldest daughter Kortnie.  I have been married for 26 years to Glen Hudgens - a top lender in the area, and we have another daughter Miranda -21, soon to be graduating from  UMaine.  We reside in Bangor with 2 dogs and 3 cats!

I love to be active in the business and residential community of Bangor. I have lived in several other areas in Maine, Massachusetts, and California but the Bangor Region is where our hearts remain. I love to constantly show people all that the area has to offer.I grew up in East Millinocket and am a graduate of Brooks College in Long Beach, CA for Fashion Merchandising. I am a 2005 graduate of the Bangor Region Leadership Institute, an active member of Tuesday Forum (and past president)- Women's networking group, 2016 Past President of the Greater Bangor Association of REALTORS.  I am also a 1997 graduate of New Ventures, an entrepreneurship training program from the Maine Centers for Women, Work, & Community.
