Business spotlight - Flynn & company Real Estate - By Michelle Libby

Flynn & Company Real Estate is celebrating its 26th year with a grand opening of their newest and third location at 5 Main Street in Gray. Flynn & Company’s straight forward approach to selling homes and representing buyers has made them a top real estate company in Southern Maine.

Under the direction of president Joe Flynn, the company has sold close to 2,000 homes in the region over its many years in business. With a total of six agents, Flynn & Company is ready to place you with the agent that is the right fit for what you are looking for be it residential, light mixed use or commercial property.

“We offer the power of a greater Portland agency with a physical presence in the lakes region,” said Flynn. A few of the agents have rated in the top five for sales volume in the State of Maine in past years. They are moving inventory at a fast rate. 

When selling a house choosing the correct agent is important. Flynn & Company’s average number of days on the market over the last six to eight months is four, many homes sell in one day. “We try to price them right and get a bidding war going. Everything has been going quickly because of the low inventory,” Flynn said. 

Flynn & Company has a proven track record when it comes to working with elderly clients who might be ready to move out of their homes or their children are asking them to move into assisted living. Often times it is a family or the grown children who are selling the house in these instances. 

“We work with elder attorneys and helping a client who wants to sell the house with his five brothers and sisters,” Flynn said. They are sympathetic and ready to help ease the transition for all involved.
There are two other offices in addition to the one in Gray, which has been open for just over two weeks, the main office at 918 Broadway in South Portland and the second office at 918 Forest Ave. in Portland. 

Each office has its own niche in the community. In Portland, they specialize in condominiums on the east end and west end, and development work. In South Portland, they do a lot of regular residential business. In the lakes region office, they expect to work with clients who are looking for lake properties and camps in the area.
Flynn and other agents are familiar with the Sebago region because they own property in the area and are ready to sell others a lakefront dream.  

Advertising has always been a priority for the company. “We know that in today’s ever changing   
market you can not just put up a for sale sign on a home and hope that it sells. Our aggressive marketing plan for our listings includes professional pictures taken by our photographer, Internet advertising, print advertising and the electronic sign,” said Flynn. The electronic sign sits at the Portland office and is seen by 30,000 cars each day.

“The key thing is that we are a family-owned company that has been successful in both up and down markets. We’ve invested in our company for people who want to buy and sell their property,” Flynn added. “We’ve invested in the tools to give the best to our clients.” 

In addition to promoting the lakes region listings to the Portland market, they also offer a client moving van. Starting this week, they are offering use of a brand new 2016 Ford Cargo van to anyone who buys or sells property with them. 

Flynn & Company primarily works with clients in York and Cumberland counties from the Lewiston area down to York. On their website, they have listings from all over the state.
