by | Feb 1, 2024

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 achieved annual property sales of $865 million in 2023, totaling 898 transaction sides and a record-breaking average sales price of $964,000. The company also beat its own record for its highest-value property sale, “Floating Boulder” in Orland, Maine, for $8.5 million last year, with two extraordinary property sales of $9 million in Kennebunkport and $9.75 million in St. George. The company also succeeded in numerous record sales in multiple communities throughout the state. Legacy Properties Sotheby’s International Realty continues a long-running string of record-breaking annual performances.

“We definitely experienced some of the most difficult market conditions we have seen since the financial crisis over a decade ago,” said Chris Lynch, President. “Our highly experienced agents did an exceptional job helping our clients achieve their real estate goals. The more difficult the market conditions, the more I see our team of agents shine.”

Legacy Properties Sotheby’s International Realty is also proud to report that it has ascended to the #2 real estate company in Maine based on the value of properties sold. This is an improvement from the #3 spot in 2022. “Despite having significantly fewer agents than our top competitors in Maine, we enjoy a highly productive and professional full-time group of agents,” adds Lynch. “Our focus has always been to be the best real estate company in Maine, not the largest. We have consistently picked up market share by offering a very strong package of experience, professionalism, client service, and transaction success. Our improved ranking is simply a reflection of our current and prospective clients choosing us to assist them in meeting their real estate goals.”

Legacy Properties Sotheby’s International Realty attributes its success to offering its listing clients a very strong package of marketing services, including critical 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. “Sharply rising interest rates were definitely a factor for all real estate companies, but we never took our foot off the accelerator when it came to client service,” states Chris Fortunato, Chief Operating Officer. “Our commitment to our clients’ success at every level of the company is as strong and determined as ever, given the more challenging market environment.”

“Our clients deserve the focus and attention of each of our agents with a customized plan. We have, for several years, sold more homes for more money than any other real estate company in Maine. We could not be more pleased with the results we have achieved for our clients this past year,” concludes Lynch.
