Legacy Properties Sotheby’s International Realty Ranks #1 in Maine For All Waterfront Property Sales in 2022

by | Mar 6, 2023

Portland, Maine (March 2023) – Legacy Properties Sotheby’s International Realty, with offices in Portland, Kennebunk, Brunswick, Damariscotta, Camden, and Northeast Harbor, announced that it again retained the #1 ranking for waterfront property sales in Maine in 2022. The company reported that it sold more Maine waterfront properties than any other real estate company in the state based on total dollar sales volume. Legacy Properties Sotheby’s International Realty closed 278 waterfront property transaction sides, totaling over $360 million in property value. 

“While Maine has so much going for it in so many ways, people’s first thoughts about our state often focus on the Atlantic coastline, pristine lakes, and beautiful rivers. Many buyers are looking for that perfect waterfront location with the amenities that are most important to them, such as crashing surf, fishing, boating, a private dock, and other desirable features,” said Chris Lynch, President. “This has been an area of growth for us in recent years. When I started the company, we only had enough coverage to handle the coastal communities, but now with more than 90 agents, we are also a leader in the sale of Maine’s inland waterfront gems.” 

Legacy Properties Sotheby’s International Realty plans to continue its expansion into Maine’s Lakes Region. The company sees a growth opportunity for sellers looking to get more regional, national, and international exposure when selling their homes. “As we expand north and west, our global marketing reach, professional photography, and real estate technology become game-changers for our clients,” adds Lynch.

Legacy Properties Sotheby’s International Realty attributes its success to offering clients a very strong package of marketing services, including extraordinary 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. The company is composed of very experienced and professional agents who provide exceptional service, touch, and personalized attention to their clients. According to Lynch, “Our agents want to be at the showings so they can sell the property and its unique features and lifestyle attributes. Combining personal service with beautiful properties in great locations throughout Maine continues to be a winning strategy for us.” 

“Although we have enjoyed a #1 ranking in sold waterfront properties for many years, we are looking to continue to take advantage of our marketing strength to add to our business throughout the state,” Lynch concludes. “We are engaged in many aspects of the market, not exclusively oceanfront and lakefront properties. Our focus is to offer distinctive properties at all prices. We present properties in a way that buyers, regardless of where they begin their search, can find our listings and gather enough relevant information to make the important decisions regarding whether to proceed with a showing and ultimately submit an offer to purchase a property. We know that if we create the most buyer-friendly process with the best inventory of properties for sale, then all of our clients will be well-served.”
