YARMOUTH, Maine – Portside Real Estate Group, one of Maine’s largest residential real estate firms, recently announced the acquisition of RE/MAX Heritage as part of its ongoing growth and expansion in Southern Maine.
RE/MAX Heritage has been a pillar in the Yarmouth community and real estate industry for 17 years. The average tenure of the RE/MAX Heritage agents is 15 years and all agents and staff will be joining Portside. RE/MAX Heritage will take on the Portside name, giving Portside locations in Yarmouth, Falmouth and Portland.
As Portside continues to see a surge in growth, Owner Dava Davin will now lead a team of 53 agents and staff with a combined projected annual sales volume of more than $240,000,000.
“We are thrilled to open our third boutique in Yarmouth and bring Portside’s unique brand to one of the most highly regarded real estate agencies in the state,” said Davin. “Maine buyers and sellers are allowing for the growth of independently owned companies like Portside. This partnership exemplifies that and we look forward to strengthening our reach in Southern Maine and beyond.”
Mike LePage, owner of RE/MAX Heritage will join Portside Real Estate Group, supporting the agency’s growth and commitment to excellence as Designated Broker.
“Merging cultures is never simple, but both of our teams have shown an energy and enthusiasm that is contagious,” said LePage. “The collective ideas and market knowledge of our teams make the whole greater than the sum of its parts. At RE/MAX Heritage, we have always been client-focused which is reflected in the decisions we make. Now, our goal is the same in that we want our clients to know they can expect professionalism, success and fun when they come to Portside.”
Portside is set to open their new, larger headquarters at the end of November in Falmouth that will buck the real estate trend of remote work, and offer agents a place to collaborate with colleagues and have more face-to-face interactions with clients.
Recently celebrating their 5th anniversary, Portside is one of the few local, independently owned real estate firms to successfully acquire a franchise in Maine. Davin believes this growth reflects consumers desire to support a locally owned company with fresh marketing, community involvement and a thoughtful approach to a positive customer experience.
