Portland Office Welcomes Vice President Adam Zimbalist

Legacy Properties Sotheby’s International Realty welcomes Adam Zimbalist, who joined the Portland office as a Vice President. Having enjoyed many vacations along the southern Maine coast, Adam Zimbalist long felt the pull of Maine living and became a full-time Portland resident in 2020. He is thrilled to be able to enjoy the charm of compact and cosmopolitan Portland as well as its famously beautiful surroundings. 

“We are so pleased to have Adam join our Portland office. He brings a fresh set of real estate skill and experience to the Maine market,” states Chris Lynch, President.  “Adam recognizes the opportunity that Sotheby’s International Realty offers his current and prospective clients in terms of global market reach and systems support. I am confident he will hit the ground running in 2021.”

As a busy agent in Manhattan, Adam developed extensive experience navigating real estate transactions in a complex market, and is happy to bring these skills to Maine. He differentiates himself through a focus on customer service and attention to detail. At the core of his approach is the belief that clients must feel that they are being very well taken care of at all times, and that a good broker should buffer clients from the more stressful parts of the buying or selling process. Understanding that the real estate market of today involves a wealth of information easily available to buyers and sellers, Adam also sees the value of an agent as helping clients sort through information and prioritize what matters – helping them drill down into their specific market and developing a strategy to succeed.

Prior to working in real estate, Adam worked in institutional sales and marketing for a prominent investment firm in New York, winning a long series of equity mandates from some of the world’s largest pension funds. Outside of work, Adam enjoys exploring the many cultural and culinary offerings of Portland just as much as he enjoys connecting with nature up and down the coast. He is a lover of historic architecture as well as art and literature. Adam travels extensively and as a certified scuba diver, he is a frequent visitor to Bonaire in the Dutch Caribbean. He is a member of the Portland Museum of Art and the Maine Historical Society and holds a degree in English Literature from the University of Maryland.

Adam may be reached at 347.522.1554 or azimbalist@legacysir.com.

Kennebunk Office Welcomes Michael Hardy as Senior Vice President

Michael Hardy has a diverse and varied real estate background with a career spanning over 15 years across multiple markets and niche real estate sectors.  His career began in the Florida panhandle after graduating from Florida State University where he actively represented both buyers and sellers in the fast paced market of the early 2000’s along the Emerald Coast from Destin to Rosemary Beach. He continued as a listing partner in Atlanta with a top team and later with DeLoach Sotheby’s International Realty in St. Simons and Sea Island, Georgia. 

“Michael has a wealth of real estate knowledge and enthusiasm for the Kennebunk lifestyle,” says President and Founder, Chris Lynch. We are pleased he has joined us in our commitment to deliver today’s best marketing tools and a world class experience for our clients in York county.”

In 2015 Michael formed Michael Hardy Real Estate in Coastal Georgia. While continuing to assist clients with residential and commercial brokerage services, the firm focused on historic renovation in Savannah, mixed-use developments, income producing assets, and the preservation of environmentally sensitive land through conservation easements. Michael personally manages a small portfolio of long and short term rental properties and is continually seeking out unique investment opportunities for his clients and for himself.  Being able to leverage this experience, coupled with the global network and brand resources of Legacy Sotheby’s International Realty, allows him to provide clients with exceptional representation whether buying or selling. 

Born and raised in the South, Michael frequently vacationed in Maine before calling it home. The authenticity of the people and places, along with access to great boating, skiing, and surfing, affords him the lifestyle he has always wanted. He lives in Kennebunkport with his rescue dogs Tess and Winston, and is frequently found on the trails of Bridle Path and Emmons Preserve, or walking along Gooch’s Beach. As time and the world permit, he tries to experience as much of it as possible seeking out surfing destinations throughout the world or cultural events such as running with the bulls in Pamplona. 

His love of Kennebunkport and Maine is quickly evident when speaking with him, and he would welcome the opportunity to share this with you.

Michael may be reached at 912.230.0549 and by e-mail at mhardy@legacysir.com.

JOANNE MOORE Joins the Damariscotta Office!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Damariscotta, Maine Real Estate (October 2020) Legacy Properties Sotheby’s International Realty, Maine’s #1 Luxury Property Company, is proud to announce that Joanne Moore has joined their firm.

Although Joanne spent thirty seven years raising her family in Northern California, she always longed to return to her home state of Maine.

In each of her summer visits to Maine since she was 16, Joanne looked forward to spending time with family and making the most of her vacations enjoying the great outdoors whether it was hiking or fishing. On her summer visit in 2005, she met her now husband, Wayne Moore, while in line for a clambake on Cabbage Island. She moved back to Maine in 2007 and the couple purchased the Weatherbird, a retail specialty food and wine market and women’s boutique in Damariscotta. Not having any previous retail experience, Joanne jumped in with both feet and over the twelve years she owned the businesses, was recognized for her long-lasting relationships with customers through communication, exceptional customer service and an energetic personality.

“I am so pleased to have Joanne join our team of Midcoast Maine agents.  This region has been an area of tremendous growth and success for the past decade,” states  Chris Lynch, President.   “Joanne has a wealth of knowledge for some of the most special places along Maine’s beautiful Midcoast.  She has the resources and expertise to help her clients hit the ground running.”

Given her previous experience as a business owner, Joanne believes strongly in a personalized approach to guiding clients through the steps of purchasing or selling a home and being dedicated to the details involved in each transaction. After working for the Superior Courts in California for more than twenty years, she is confident in her abilities as a manager or supervisor with regard to her attention to detail, high standards of professionalism and experience in handling confidential and time sensitive documents. As Court Services Manager she developed and implemented various training methods, negotiated grant funding for public services and facilitated contracts with local and government agencies.

Joanne and Wayne live in the Boothbay/Damariscotta area year-round; six months are spent on Cabbage Island in Linekin Bay, where this season celebrated the Moore family’s 32nd season of the famous Cabbage Island Clambakes, and the remaining six months on the River Road. She enjoys hiking, kayaking, quilting and, of course, her role as a “Nana.” She devotes personal time to her community and volunteers as a trail tamer for the Coastal Rivers Conservation Trust and is a volunteer for the Apple Corp at Boothbay Region Land Trust.

Joanne Moore can be reached at 207.350.5172 and by e-mail at joannemoore@legacysir.com.

Kennebunk, Maine Real Estate (September 2020) Legacy Properties Sotheby’s International Realty, Maine’s #1 Luxury Property Company, is proud to announce that Ashley O’Neil has joined their firm.

Ashley O’Neil is thrilled to join Legacy Properties Sotheby’s International Realty’s Kennebunk office after 8 successful years as an agent in Palm Beach, Florida and Darien, Connecticut.  In Connecticut she received sales recognition awards after just 2 years in sales. Last year in Palm Beach, Ashley closed over $25M in real estate.

“Ashley is another example of our commitment to professionalism and experience in York county.  Her in-depth knowledge of real estate brokerage and the local markets in and around the Kennebunks will be welcomed by our clients” states Chris Lynch, President. “We are so pleased that she is bringing the incredible marketing tools and customer service professionalism to our buyers and sellers alike.” Ashley has decades of connections in both Palm Beach and Kennebunkport. Her husband, Pierce, has been coming to Kennebunkport since he was a small child and introduced Ashley to the spectacular KPT lifestyle 34 years ago. They own a home where they raised their 3 daughters in the Summer and now live in Maine on a more full time basis.  Ashley is a true professional who exceeds her clients’ expectations and has excellent professional support in both states when needed.

Ashley’s career in real estate is successful due to her “fresh approach” to the business, and both buyers and sellers know they can trust her. With a 20-year background in marketing and promotion, she applies a creative strategy that works. It includes extensive digital & print advertising, social media, special events, PR and collaborations with vendors and publications for additional exposure. Ashley is sincere about wanting to share her enthusiasm and knowledge of real estate and to connect customers with their ideal home. When looking for a home, she works hard to use her social connections to find properties off market and to be ahead of the game. When selling your home, she will treat it like it’s her own and represent you in the most professional manner. Ashley takes real estate seriously and is committed to getting the very best results for her clients. She knows that whether purchasing a home or selling your home, this may be the most significant financial transaction in your life. Her goal is a happy customer and a lifelong connection.

Ashley was born & raised in Wilmington, Delaware where she attended Tower Hill School. She went to high school at The Ethel Walker School in Simsbury, CT, then the University of Virginia and Boston University for Broadcasting. She worked as a producer of television commercials in Boston before moving to New York City to work at CBS Sports. Her career went on to marketing and promotion at Philip Morris USA in New York City where she won the President’s Award. In her past roles, her supervisors have described her as “smart, honest and hard-working.” Her CT supervisor called her “a rock star.” In her spare time, Ashley enjoys walking on Gooches Beach with the dogs, playing tennis & pickleball, bike riding, cooking and being with friends & family. Occasionally she likes to ride horses, as it’s been a while since she was a successful junior hunter & equitation rider. In addition, she loves to go to the movies, to travel throughout Maine and to try new restaurants!

Ashley chose Legacy Properties Sotheby’s International Realty first and foremost because it was the firm with the strongest brand recognition. With a background in marketing and promoting brand loyalty, Ashley knew she was positioned to hit the ground running with a strong brand reputation and real estate team behind her.

Ashley may be reached at 203.219.1421.
