In real estate, you hear a lot about staging your home, taking away the clutter, but clutter is also a huge cause of stress in everyday life – so get rid of it!
According to a recent Huffington Post survey:
“Home organization is one of the most universal stress triggers, according to a recent online survey. Eighty-four percent of recently stressed Americans say they worry that their home isn’t clean or organized enough, and within that group, 55 percent called it out as a source of recent stress.
Among all those who experienced some level of stress about home organization, nearly a third expressed being very or extremely stressed by their homes. And it wasn’t just a stressor for women: 81 percent of men and 87 percent of women who reported experiencing anxiety over home upkeep.”
And if you are selling your home, you will sell it more quickly. People looking to buy a home want the ease of envisioning their belongings in the home, not yours. If you’re looking to stay in your home, release and be happy : – )
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!
