65 Rockwood Lane – in Golden Greenwich – was purchased by owners in 1995. It was on the market in 1999 fr $1,675,000 – then cancelled. Renovated in 2000, it was back on the market in October 2012 for $2,595,000 – after 346 days – $2,085,000. It is only 3 bedrooms, but has FAR to grow – which most likely will be it’s fate.
5 Keofferam – Old Greenwich
5 Keofferam surprisingly sold very close to asking price considering days on market were 445. A beautiful home, at the top of the street, so clear of flood zone and absolutely on move-in condition…which is exactly what the market is telling sellers to do, if they want their price.
23 Nicholas Ave
And then on the other side of town, 23 Nicholas Ave sold within 23 days – lesson: If it’s not in move-in condition – price it right. The buyer will no doubt invest a few dollars and will make a profit if it flips..
Asked $495,000 and got $490,000 after a few days.
46 HAVEMYER PLACE – land sale asking $449,000
13 HENDRIE RIVERSIDE – what a surprise – asking $1,350,000
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!
