Legacy Properties Sotheby’s International Realty Ranks #1 in Maine for All Waterfront Property Sales in 2023

Portland, Maine (January 2024) Legacy Properties Sotheby’s International Realty, Maine’s leading luxury property company, with offices in Portland, Kennebunk, Brunswick, Damariscotta, Camden, and Northeast Harbor, announced that it again retained the #1 ranking for waterfront property sales in Maine in 2023. The company reported that it sold more Maine waterfront properties than any other real estate company in the state based on total dollar sales volume. Legacy Properties Sotheby’s International Realty closed 263 waterfront property transaction sides, totaling over $345 million in property value. We achieved an impressive annual average selling price of $1,310,000, which is more than double that of our next closest competitors.

“The waterfront property market has always been a strong market for our company. Given our dedication to the highest quality interior and exterior photography, it is a natural fit for us.” said Chris Lynch, President. “We have maintained a strong lead in this important market segment by retaining our roots along the coastal communities while expanding our extremely successful marketing platform into more of the beautiful interior lakes and ponds.”

Legacy Properties Sotheby’s International Realty plans to continue its expansion into Maine’s Lakes Region. The company sees a growth opportunity for sellers looking to get more regional, national, and international exposure when selling their homes. “As we expand north and west, our global marketing reach, professional photography, and real estate technology become game-changers for our clients,” adds Lynch. “Inventory shortages along the coast and the most highly desirable lakes and ponds have motivated buyers to dig deeper for their special piece of Maine. We plan to continue to expand our coverage with top-quality agents in the best markets.”

Legacy Properties Sotheby’s International Realty attributes its success to offering clients a very strong package of marketing services, including extraordinary professional photography, Matterport 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. The company is composed of very experienced and professional agents who provide exceptional service, touch, and personalized attention to their clients. According to Lynch, “We are keenly aware that as you approach the more rural parts of the state, it becomes increasingly difficult to get marketing depth and breadth along with the hands-on, high touch, and attentive service that buyers and sellers desire. Our experienced full-time professional agents are committed to providing top-quality service as far and wide as we can deliver.”

“Although we have enjoyed a #1 ranking in sold waterfront properties for many years, we are looking to continue to take advantage of our marketing strength to add to our business throughout the state,” states Andy Lynch, Chief Financial Officer. “We are engaged in many aspects of the market, not exclusively oceanfront and lakefront properties. Our focus is to offer distinctive properties at all prices. We present properties in a way that buyers, regardless of where they begin their search, can find our listings and gather enough relevant information to make important decisions regarding whether to proceed with a showing and ultimately submit an offer to purchase a property. We know that if we create the most buyer-friendly process with the best inventory of properties for sale, then all of our clients will be  well served.”
