The gathering of state REALTORS from Maine, to learn much during continuing education credit classes. But the sweet spot of being a better REALTOR, local real estate professional is the real target. Happens in the hallways, cozy corners talking between classes or during breaks. Slurping coffee, listening, sharing the good stuff. What is working and why or not in the local real estate trenches. The sessions in a hospitality suites after a long day of meetings, the lunch chit chat establishing the real estate networking connection. So referrals on this property listing or when a buyer needs to leave one Maine real estate market and head to another. Who you gonna pass that prospect or potential Maine real estate listing too is decided during these conventions. Learning in real estate means...
