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.

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.
