Beautiful, clean, and clear lakes are the primary economic driver for much of rural Maine. However, these lakes are also sensitive to development and several lakes in Maine have already experienced a precipitous decline in water quality. Real estate agents are often the first point of contact for many new landowners and their words and projected values form meaningful and long-standing impressions. This course aims to give real estate agents a well-rounded and holistic view on Maine’s lakes and ponds so they can be more knowledgeable about freshwater issues with their clients, and in turn, preserve market value of properties. Attendees can earn 3 CEU MREC-approved hours. To learn more about the class, click here; and to register, click here.
