I toured this home this week, and hopefully will find someone who appreciates a great location, superb quality and has vision beyond “today’s trends”. Unfortunately many home buyers don’t have a sense of preservation and go straight ahead for total renovation. What that often yields, is settling for cookie cutter features with no imagination.
This home is not for the Brady Bunch crowd that has to have the family room directly adjacent to the kitchen…although if Mr and Mrs Brady could possibly overtake the formal dining room and open the kitchen. Changing paint themes, some light fixtures, a few flooring choices and furnishings would give this home immediate freshness…
The upper level, which has remained as “servants quarters” – not very pretty, With a little love, it would be a great place for the kids to call their own…

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!
