Maine paper launching commercial real estate section
The Portland Press Herald/Maine Sunday Telegram will introduce a new weekly commercial real estate section in the Dec. 3 edition of the Maine Sunday Telegram in what appears to be a venture closely tied to local real estate brokers.
The broadsheet, section-front feature debuts following months ofÂ planning between the newspaper and Maineâ€™s commercial realtors.
â€œWe created a weekly publication to showcase this vital sector of the economy,â€? said Anton Kaufer, group sales manager for real estate at the Press Herald/Telegram. â€œOur goal is to present the premier statewide marketplace to connect commercial realtors with their customers.â€?
Each week a Maine commercial listing will appear as a featured property, and an industry professional will contribute a column under the â€œIn The Marketplaceâ€? heading.
â€œThe weekly articles written by Maine experts will provide readers with commercial real estate tools and insight on local market conditions and area growth,â€? said Matthew Cardente, designated owner/broker at Cardente Real Estate in Portland.
â€œWeâ€™re excited about engaging readers and about giving our commercial real estate industry a new voice,â€? said Kaufer.
In addition to the new section on Sundays, commercial real estate listings will be moved from Fridayâ€™s Real Estate section to Fridayâ€™s Business section.
