The Maine Association Of REALTORS statewide annual meeting is in day two in Portland Maine.
Off to a 6:30 class from Kim Coit who was there as the hall monitor when I got my Maine Real Estate Broker License back in th winter of 1979.
A trained lawyer and with lots of experiences in all aspects of the real estate industry in Maine, all the many changes, Kim is an old friend I look forward to learning from. Again. And again.
No man, No REALTOR is an island. I traveled 3.5 hours to get from Aroostook County to this year's REALTOR's meeting and am learning a lot.
Sharing, networking, and will be fully charged after unplugging from all the industry education by noon time Thursday.
When it is is time to head north of Interstate 95 to the beginning. Where it connects to the Trans Canada highway, the Gateway to the Atlantic provinces!
Every year we blog about the Maine Association Of REALTORS meeting.
Sometimes in Bar Harbor, often in Rockland at the Samoset Resort.
Or off to Sugarloaf, Sunday River ski resorts. But always a take away.
To learn and apply to shape how you list, market, sell (repeat) the most memorable, efficient and yes fun way possible.
Every market in Maine is different for real estate. The home that is an average priced $71,000 typical house in Northern Maine costs $191,000 in the Portland area market. So the marketing is a little different, the audience not quite the same.
And what's big in one area due to the more land, open space is not the target audience where the acreage is smaller, population a little more dense. And the coastal market for real estate in Maine is another unique playing field for property buyers. So how the marketing happens depends on which area of Maine you happen to live, work and play in and know inside and out.
Maine, she's big, beautiful, unfiltered, all natural.
