Damariscotta Office Welcomes Crissy Stirratt

PRESS RELEASE FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Damariscotta (May 2021)

Legacy Properties Sotheby’s International Realty, Maine’s leading luxury property company, is proud to announce Crissy Stirratt has joined the office in Damariscotta, Maine and is thrilled to work in tandem with veteran agent Kathy Leeman. “The mid-coast has been an area of tremendous growth and success for the past decade,” states Chris Lynch, President. “Crissy’s experience and resources will help their clients compete in an increasingly competitive market.”

As a former advertising producer, Crissy Stirratt is accustomed to getting a deep understanding of her customers’ needs and delivering on them to 100% satisfaction.  Doing this requires a strong listener, organized mind, and tenacious spirit, all of which Crissy has in spades.  As a Realtor, Crissy’s organizational confidence takes the heavy lifting away from her clients so that they can focus on what’s important in their life, their transitions, or investments.

Crissy brings a unique combination of local experience and global perspective, having lived in diverse communities across the United States, Scotland, New Zealand, and Vietnam. Crissy moved to the midcoast permanently in 2016, following a childhood dream to spend more time on Muscongus Bay. This balance brings an understanding of her clients’ needs and the right local community fit.

Crissy Stirratt loves getting to know people and is interested in what brings you inspiration and comfort.  To Crissy, a home is much more than where you live, it should accommodate how you live and where you find peace and a sense of place, she looks forward to working hard to find that for her clients.

Crissy’s personal investments in real estate have further shaped her knowledge of the industry.  She has owned and managed several unique properties in Maine and Chicago, which have given her a broader understanding of real estate trends, renovation, art, and design. Her love of art and music combined with a strong sense of community are the reason why she sits on the board of both Intonation in Chicago and The Waldo Theater in Waldoboro Maine.

Crissy’s other great loves include family, her dog, sailing, working outdoors, swimming, ceramics, travel, and her friends. She now lives happily down the road from her family in Bremen and spends her free time sailing Muscongus Bay or taking long drives to explore the coast, mountains, farmland, blueberry fields, often coinciding with driving her daughter to skiing or to lacrosse games. She finds it all stunning and inspirational. Crissy will find any excuse to discover a new corner of Maine and is in awe of the beauty and abundant wildlife in the state.

Camden Office Welcomes Annemarie Ahearn!

PRESS RELEASE FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Camden (April 2021)

Annemarie Ahearn takes great pleasure in introducing folks to Mid-Coast Maine, as she’s proud to call it home. Through her cooking school, she has watched many families fall in love with Coastal Maine and find ways to build legacies of their own. “Becoming a real estate agent with Sotheby’s International Realty has allowed me to be a part of that process for people which feels like the ultimate privilege. I am thrilled to have joined this spectacular team and will help those aspiring to live here in the Mid-Coast realize their dreams,” she said.

“We are pleased to welcome Annemarie Ahearn to our Camden office. Her love for the Maine lifestyle is palpable and her attention to detail, as well as her knowledge of the area, will serve our clients well,” said Chris Lynch, owner and founder. Brian Wickenden, Camden Managing Broker added, “Agents in our office recommended we meet with her. We are thrilled to welcome Annemarie to the team.”

As a child, Annemarie Ahearn spent summers on her family’s blueberry farm in Dresden, Maine picking fruit with her cousins and getting lost in the woods. They began renting homes along the coast when she was a teenager, paddling the ocean waters in kayaks and hiking up into the Camden Hills. In 1999, a real estate agent named George Wheelwright showed her parents a rugged, 25 acre piece of land in Lincolnville overlooking the Penobscot Bay. Her parents had a vision for the land and over the course of twenty years, have executed that vision.

After 10 years of working in New York City’s food industry, Annemarie moved onto the property into an antique post & beam barn that her parents had built. In the lower level of the barn, she dreamt of building a cooking school for home cooks in this picturesque location between the mountains and the sea. In 2009, she opened the doors to Salt Water Farm Cooking School and students from near and far registered for classes. Salt Water Farm Cooking School is now 12 years old and offers over 60 classes to students from around the globe.

One of things Annemarie most loves about living in Maine is the community. With her husband, originally from Maine, and daughter they have built so many meaningful relationships. They spend weekends hiking, skiing, swimming and paddling; taking full advantage of the natural elements this place has to offer. Annemarie is a board member of the Penobscot Bay YMCA, an organization that strives to nurture the community though healthy living practices, full-time childcare and a myriad of community-building services such as summer camps.

Annemarie Ahearn may be reached directly at 207.200.4830 or Annemarie.legacysir.com.

Maine Listings statistics also show that the company outsold the #2 participant by more than 22% in terms of dollar volume.

In fact, we were involved in selling waterfront properties in 78 Maine cities and towns this past year. What a phenomenal result!”

Legacy Properties Sotheby’s International Realty also reports that it continues to expand its reach into Maine’s Lakes Region. With more than 6,000 lakes and ponds in Maine, the company sees a growth opportunity for sellers looking to get more regional, national, and international exposure when selling their homes. “While growing the Lakes Region, we have also seen our oceanfront business thrive,” said Lynch. “Maine’s beautiful coastline and bountiful lakes are a perfect fit for our branding and global marketing strength.”

Legacy Properties Sotheby’s International Realty attributes its success to offering clients a very strong package of marketing services including critical professional photography, 3D Virtual Tours, glossy print advertising, global property distribution through their exclusive network of agents, and luxury branding through their affiliation with Sotheby’s International Realty. The company also brings a very experienced and professional broker base of high service, touch and personalized attention to their clients. According to Lynch, “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. Personal service and beautiful properties in great locations throughout Maine has been a winning strategy for us.”

“Waterfront properties of all types are an exciting area of growth for us and feed from the success we have already achieved,” Lynch concludes. “That being said, 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 buyers, regardless of where they begin their search, can find our listings and gather enough relevant information to make the big decision of whether to proceed with a showing and ultimately an offer to purchase a property. It is our intent to make the process very buyer friendly.”

The quality of our properties continues to be amazing at all price points and markets.”

Legacy Properties Sotheby’s International Realty is also proud to report that it ranks as the #4 real estate company in Maine for all residential sales statewide. “Despite our growth, we have continued to enjoy a very high relative average sales price of $584,000 for our listings,” adds Lynch. “There is a greater understanding in the marketplace that we list and sell great properties at all prices. Our focus continues to be doing more for our clients in terms of service for our buyers and sellers, including delivering an incredible marketing plan which is second to none for our sellers. We have excelled in our ability to get our buyer clients in a position to succeed in a competitive market environment.”

“For the past couple of years, we have had to manage through a supply/demand imbalance in the early months of the year with many buyers chasing too few properties. It is during these times, that our buyers see very strong results by teaming up with a firm that carries the quality and quantity of inventory we provide at Legacy Properties Sotheby’s International Realty,” Lynch concludes.
