Historic Homes of Maine
The Swan Agency Sotheby's International Realty recently launched another specialty division, Historic Homes of Maine. There are several agents involved in this division who took part in a course in Portland last week which was required in order to be considered a Historic Homes Specialist. Naturally, because the majority of my listings (being inns) are historic (at least 100 years old), I wanted to take part in the class. Each of my historic listings will be marketed on a new website soon to launch under The Swan Agency Sotheby's International Realty. Besides, niche marketing is right up my alley...
We took part in a 2 hour walking tour of the Western Promenade, looking at the architectural details as explained by our informative tour guide, followed by a working lunch and classroom session. I've got a bit of education and experience in architecture and construction but this certainly helped to refresh my memory. Overall it was a wonderful day and I'm thrilled to be a part of another Swan Agency niche.
