When I recently went onto the Trulia site, I was intrigued by yet another falsity. There in the middle of the page was a teaser to browse Greenwich’s most expensive homes. Listed at #1 was a beautiful home for $25.5M. If you sell real estate in Greenwich, you know without even thinking for a second that there are many more homes that are currently listed for more. One being the estate formerly owned by Leona Helmsley for $42M, another on John St for $45M
The home that was featured at #1 is actually in Fairfield, CT – still in Fairfield county – for those of you not familiar with the area – but Fairfield certainly does not have the same land value as Greenwich. The home is listed on the Greenwich MLS – of course to get the appropriate audience for a luxury home. Located on 11 acres with 450″ of shoreline – this architectural beauty has total privacy bordering Southport.
The art of the deal transcends all businesses, and more so in real estate than in many other professions. For the client, it's often an emotional purchase or sale, rather than a simple commodity or luxury item. I make it my mission to have each side come to terms with a transaction that works for everyone. It's not always easy, but good things in life usually take effort - something from which I've never shied.
Licensed since 2009 as a real estate sales agent in CT & NY, I often work with clients on the border of both areas.
With sales and distribution experience for luxury designer products, and watching/reacting to the markets, my acumen for sales was established. Achieving success and contributing to the growth of many global apparel designer brands, such as Giorgio Armani and Paul Smith for over 20 years, it was time for a change. I wanted to explore another passion that would keep me in one location rather than traveling the globe.
Now I have the best of both worlds, a successful business as a fulfilling personal life. My husband and I have lived in back country Greenwich since 2003, where we enjoy easy access to great biking, hiking and golf. We love to ski and that's usually where our travel takes us.
Life is good in Greenwich!
