#1 in Maine For Waterfront Property Sales in 2016

Maine Real Estate (January 25, 2017) – Legacy Properties Sotheby’s International Realty, with offices in Portland, Kennebunk, Brunswick, Damariscotta, and Camden, announced today that it again retained the #1 Ranking for 2016 Waterfront  Property sales in Maine. The company reported it was successful in closing more Maine Waterfront Properties than any other real estate company in the State. Legacy Properties Sotheby’s International Realty closed 258 transaction sides totaling $198.3 million in total property value. According to Maine Listings, the statistics also show that the company held a very substantial lead over the #2 participant by more than 35% in terms of dollar volume sold.

“Maine Waterfront Property has always been an important area of focus for our company” said Chris Lynch, President. “We approach real estate with a Maine lifestyle angle that helps the rest of the world appreciate what a beautiful place Maine is to live, work, recreate, and enjoy. Our lake front and ocean front homes, with our beautiful proprietary professional photography, 3D virtual tours, aerial videography, and overall property presentation have had a tremendous impact on our success!”

Legacy Properties Sotheby’s International Realty also reports that it is looking to expand its reach into Maine’s Lake Region area.  With more than 6,000 lakes and ponds in Maine, the company sees growth opportunities for sellers looking to get more regional, national, and international exposure when selling their homes.  “The Lakes Region is a great fit for our business” adds Lynch. “But it does not stop there, we see several Maine lakes, such as Sebago Lake, the Belgrade Lakes, the Rangeley Lakes, Long Lake, Thompson Lake, Damariscotta Lake, and Megunticook Lake, as just a few of the many Maine lakes that fit our branding and marketing very well.”

Legacy Properties Sotheby’s International Realty attributes its success to offering its clients a very strong package of marketing services including critical professional photography, 3D Virtual Tours, glossy print advertising, global property distribution through its exclusive network of agents, and luxury branding through its affiliation with Sotheby’s International Realty.  It also brings a very experienced and professional broker base of high service, high touch and personalized attention to its clients. “It is very rare that one finds a lock box at one of our listings. Our agents want to be at the showings so they can sell the house and its unique features and lifestyle attributes” says Lynch.

“It is important to note that we are a Maine real estate company first and foremost” Lynch concludes. “We are engaged in many aspects of the market and not exclusively oceanfront or lakefront properties. Our focus is to offer distinctive properties at all prices and to present them in a way that a buyer, regardless of where they begin their search, can find our listings and gather enough relevant information to make a big decision as to whether to proceed with a showing and ultimately an offer to purchase the property. Our intent is to make the process very buyer friendly.”
