BAR HARBOR, Maine — Legacy Properties Sotheby’s International Realty, Maine’s leading luxury property company, is proud to announce Marc Perry has been promoted to senior vice president.

Marc, a Bar Harbor resident and Maine native, is best known for his outstanding work as the Tax Assessor for the Town of Bar Harbor. While Marc has been a licensed real estate agent for a decade, his real estate advisory and client representation has been largely on hold while pursuing his Assessing career. In addition to his work in Bar Harbor and the surrounding areas, Marc has been quite active in trade organizations and the Rotary Club. In fact, Marc is the incoming President of the Bar Harbor (MDI) Rotary Club for 2013.

“We are so pleased with Marc’s decision to resign his post with the Town of Bar Harbor. He has so much to offer our clients as a real estate agent,” says Christopher Lynch, President of Legacy Properties Sotheby’s International Realty. “Anyone who really wants to understand real estate market values in Bar Harbor would do very well to engage him as their agent. His ability to compare and contrast a wide array of properties is really quite impressive. His in depth knowledge of local market values is also high value added for investors, builders, and commercial real estate owners and buyers.”

“I am excited to pursue my passion for real estate from the other side of the table. My job had really kept me out of the core business of representing buyers, sellers and investors in Maine real estate in recent years,” states Marc Perry. “It is clearly a business where you have to have both feet in the water. The response to my change of jobs has been overwhelmingly positive. It is rewarding to see that people do value the incredible knowledge base I have for the real estate market in multiple different property types and locations. While I know Bar Harbor like the back of my hand, I have been following high value properties in all of Hancock County for many years.”

Marc, who holds a Certified Maine Assessors (CMA) license, is an active board member of the Maine Association of Assessing Officers (MAAO). Marc also has an excellent understanding of local Land Use and Town Code Rules and Regulations and is committed to a high level of expertise and professionalism. His experience spans all aspects of local, regional and statewide real estate issues. Marc is uniquely talented and respected for his ability to relate the tax assessing process, town code, zoning, construction, and investment opportunities to the real world of MDI real estate.

Lynch adds, “Marc’s career change is coming at a great time for us as a company. We have been fortunate to attract some of the best real estate talent in the area. Our recent additions include Carroll Fernald, who was named the 2012 Maine Realtor of the Year, has extensive experience and success in MDI properties and Jan Moore, a high achieving veteran agent who is the consummate real estate professional. Christina Deetjen gives us a fantastic high value property presence on the Blue Hill peninsula and George Ballantyne, with long time ties to MDI, rounds out our team with a New England luxury property expertise which is second to none.”

“It is hard to imagine a stronger platform than the one offered by Legacy Properties Sotheby’s International Realty. We are focused on offering our collective experience to all of our clients, while introducing them to the entire Sotheby’s International Realty global marketplace,” says Marc Perry. “We aim to be a cooperative and collaborative group combining the local market knowledge with extensive national and international marketing. It is a win/win for our clients and our agents.”
