Change is good – it certainly keeps you on your toes…so with the new changes to the Greenwich MLS, there has been a little learning curve – not huge, but just fishing around a new format takes a bit longer...
At any rate, a small excuse for an absence – that mixed with the holidays and not a whole lot going on in the front office – lots of planning and sowing for the next big market, and taking buyers out on the weekends has consumed some time and effort.
Sales today include:
4 FLORENCE RD – RIVERSIDE – LIST $1,395,000 – SOLD $1,266,200 (DO YOU THINK THAT THEY WENT BACK AND FORTH A FEW TIMES) ORIGINALLY LISTED FOR $1,525,000 IT SAT ON MARKET FOR 208 DAYS
22 WILDWOOD DR – LIST $2,150,000 – SOLD $1,840,000 – SELLERS BOUGHT IT FOR $2,650,000 IN 07 – AND TRIED AND TRIED TO SELL IT CLOSER TO THAT NUMBER – BUT THE MARKET SAID THAT IT DIDN’T ADD UP FOR ANYTHING MORE THAN WHERE IT LANDED.
85 RICHMOND HILL RD – LIST $5,495,000 – SOLD $4,825,000 – SELLERS BOUGHT IT IN 2006 FOR $7,100,000 – OUCH! THEY MUST BE LESS THAN THRILLED. BUYERS MUST BE CELEBRATING THEIR PURCHASE OF A BEAUTIFUL 10,000 SF SMART HOUSE ON 4 ACRES IN BACK COUNTRY

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!
