Maine Real Estate (January 22, 2017) – Legacy Properties Sotheby’s International Realty, Maine’s leading luxury property company, with offices in Portland, Kennebunk, Brunswick, Damariscotta, and Camden, announced today that it achieved record sales in 2016. The company reported annual sales growth of more than 20% when compared to its previous record year in 2015. Legacy Properties Sotheby’s International Realty also announced that for the first time it surpassed the $400 million mark for Maine real estate sales as reported by Maine Listings at $408.8 million.

“It has been a terrific year for our agents and clients. We accomplished this incredible result without increasing the number of agents in the field,” said Chris Lynch, President. “Our organic growth in our target markets has been exceptional as we have been able to increase our overall market share while retaining our focus on representing distinctive properties throughout Maine.”

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. “We are very fortunate to have so many top performing agents who have built their business around high-touch, exceptional personal service, and terrific sales results,” adds Lynch. “There are only a couple of companies that sell more real estate than our team, but they have hundreds more agents in the field than we have. “

Legacy Properties Sotheby’s International Realty attributes its success to offering its clients a very strong package of marketing services including critical professional photography, 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. “There is no substitution for the quality and quantity of support, marketing services and network referrals of our unique network” states Chris Fortunato, Chief Operating Officer.

“Of course we are pleased with the 2016 results, but we are very excited about the future as well.  Maine has hit the global radar screen for quality of life. This is a game changer which has been an exciting but challenging environment as we now have more buyers seeking their dream homes. While I know we are up to the task, it will clearly be a very busy year for Maine real estate” Lynch concludes.
