Still not much going on in the market….slow start – and still in Aspen. My day yesterday, trying to fly back home – eager to see my husband and kitty + get going again with business…
Plane crash at the Aspen Airport put a stop to that plan and I saw the whole thing through the portal of the plane that I was on. The plane hit, then rolled, then it turned into a huge ball of fire – then a big black cloud – until firetrucks hosed it down. It was eery to see.
It’s a miracle that anyone survived…There were only 3 on board, a pilot, a co-pilot and another co-pilot flying as a passenger. Apparently the cabin was insulated from fire and smoke – so the co-pilots survived, but the pilot died from blunt trauma.
It was extremely windy, although some speculate that if it had been a different aircraft, other than the 1994 Challenger, they may have stood a better chance dealing with crosswinds – who knows? Not to mention pilot error and judgement…

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!
