#1 in Maine for Waterfront Property Sales in 2017

Maine Real Estate (February, 2018) – Legacy Properties Sotheby’s International Realty, with offices in Portland, Kennebunk, Brunswick, Damariscotta, and Camden, announced today that they again retained the #1 ranking in 2017 for waterfront property sales in Maine. The company reported that they successfully closed more Maine waterfront properties than any other real estate company in the state. Legacy Properties Sotheby’s International Realty closed 307 transaction sides totaling $226.2 million in total property value. This performance shatters the company’s own record set last year. According to Maine Listings, the statistics also show that the company held a very substantial lead over the #2 participant by more than 50% 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 listing 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 a Sebago Lake, the Belgrade Lakes, Long Lake, Thompson Lake, Damariscotta Lake, and Megunticook Lake as just a few of the many Maine lakes that fit our branding and our global 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 exceptional service, high-touch and personalized attention to its clients. “It is very rare that one finds a lock box at one of our listings,” says Lunch. “Our agents want to be at the showings so they can sell the house and its unique features and lifestyle attributes.” Lynch continues, “The combination of personal service and beautiful properties in great locations throughout Maine has been a winning strategy for us.”
