Legacy is uniquely positioned to offer individual owners, as well as developers and lenders a hands-on and result-driven partner solely focused on meeting their luxury sales and marketing, equity capital, and financing needs.

Our membership with Forbes Global Properties will increase our reach exponentially for the benefit of our valued clients and developers,” Mark Pordes said.
