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.

Portland, Maine Real Estate (November 2020) Legacy Properties Sotheby’s International Realty, Maine’s #1 Luxury Property Company, is proud to welcome Vice President, Jessica Falcone, to the brokerage.

Jessica has garnered a reputation within the real estate industry as a highly effective negotiator with a consistent track record for completing complicated deals in record time. “We are very pleased that Jessica has transitioned back to Maine,”  says Chris Lynch, President.  “She has great energy and a passion for everything Maine, especially when it comes to real estate!”

Whether the client’s goal is to invest, own a main residence or a second home, Jessica’s business skill and acumen is second to none.

Born and raised in Maine, with a Business Administration and Communication degree from The University of Southern Maine, Jessica has been successful at blending the theory and method of real estate.

Skiing is one of Jessica’s lifelong passions, as well as spending time with her rescue dog, Hank. If you’re looking for Jessica, you will find her strolling through Portland’s Old Port with Hank in tow first thing most mornings.

Jessica believes that “Owning real estate is the keystone of both emotional and financial security, and working with a loyal agent during this type of transaction is fundamental.”

Portland Office Welcomes EMILIE SOMMER!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

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

“Emilie has been in and around the real estate business for several years.  She is a natural for real estate given her passion for beautiful homes in the Greater Portland area,” says Christopher Lynch, President.  “I am excited to have her on our team.  She is a great addition to our already exceptional team of agents here in Maine.”

As a third generation Realtor, Emilie grew up with a rich appreciation  for the process, care, and importance of home ownership. Her pretend play as a child consisted of drafting floor plans and sifting through real estate catalogs during summer rainstorms on the covered porch of their Lake Wentworth vacation home. She loved listening to her mother’s stories of the office or accompanying her grandmother in hot pursuit of the next pièce de résistance.
Emilie’s curiosity of architecture, interior design, and the everlasting impact of the memories made within a home was a favorite subject of her photography career for nearly two decades. Today, Emilie is pleased to bring her trained visual eye, discerning aesthetic, and respect for negotiation and deadlines to buyers and sellers navigating a significant life event. “I’m honored to partner with Legacy Properties Sotheby’s International Realty and am delighted to share the value of delivering an exceptional client experience,” she says.
Originally from Hollis, New Hampshire, Emilie is a graduate of The Newhouse School of Communications at Syracuse University in New York. Fresh out of college, she worked as a photographer for USA Today and a photo editor for The Washington Post in Washington, DC, where she honed her innate ability to put anyone at ease whether it was the POTUS, in the private office of the director of the CIA, with Oprah Winfrey in her green room, or on the sidelines of national championships to name a few. She can hold her own under pressure, with a smile, and on deadline.
Having gone through the home buying and selling process several times herself, what stands out to Emilie goes beyond the obvious: what she recalls most was how her Realtor made her feel. Creating a personal connection, feeling heard, and establishing trust are among Emilie’s top business acumen, and values shared with Legacy Properties Sotheby’s International Realty.
Emilie moved to Maine in 2004 after vacationing in Portland mouth agape at the stunning landscape, quality of life, access to arts, and yummy eats. She established her own wedding and portrait photography business, Emilie Inc., and over the years assisted hundreds of couples, families and executives through major milestone moments with her signature warmth, attention to detail, and raw talent. She scaled the business to include a team of creatives, two Portland storefronts, regional workshops, a national 501(c)(3) non-profit, and international travel.
Emilie shares her home in Cumberland Center with her partner Tim, 2 children, and rescue pup Bella. They can often be found in their beloved neighborhood community around a fire with friends or exploring the splendor of the environs on bikes, hikes or on the water.

Emilie Sommer can be reached at 207.400.2071 or emiliesommer.legacysir.com.
