Have you ever wanted to be a fly on the wall listening in on a conversation between Maine’s real estate industry leaders? Been curious about the people who have put together some of Maine’s most important development deals? Well, the Maine Real Estate & Development Association (MEREDA) has a treat for you! The organization known for bringing people together for insightful discussions on all things related to real estate and development is taking to the airwaves, or rather the podcast waves! On January 10th, MEREDA launches MEREDA Matters, a podcast that highlights the people, stories, and relationships behind the responsible development happening in Maine.
“I’ve been a part of MEREDA for years, and what has always stood out to me is the people. At every MEREDA event, I always have a great conversation with someone,” shares Craig Young, MEREDA President. “The MEREDA Matters podcast is about sharing those great, insider conversations. We rub elbows with these folks professionally, but what makes them excited to get up in the morning? What are they putting in their coffee? What matters most to them? Let’s get into it together!”
The MEREDA Matters podcast is sponsored by NBT Bank. Additional sponsors include Bangor Savings Bank, Clark Insurance, and The Boulos Company. A new episode will be released each month and each will feature a new voice from the real estate and development industry in conversation with Young and other MEREDA board members such as Vice President Shannon Richards and Board Member Paul Peck. The first guest on the podcast is Kevin French, Chairman and CEO of Landry/French. According to Shelly Clark, MEREDA’s Executive Director, eager listeners can find the MEREDA Matters podcast episodes on Apple, Spotify, or their regular podcast source. The episodes can also be found on MEREDA’s website www.mereda.org.
