Finally…52 Ute a 2 family close to Equinox finally sold – it had been going for years. Divorce, foreclosure, restructured…Funny – I showed it when it was $1.250m – the price had been raised from the current list of $1.1m – some strategy. The only way to see the property was to have the owner present – not listing broker accompanied – not KB. My “clients” are from Poland and the owner was Ukrainian. Just after saying a polite hello, everyone picked up on accents, and the Russian started flying. My clients indicated that they were not interested, and ironically I never heard from them again.
16 Hurlingame Rd – $11,900,000 – 681 Days
In Conyers Farm – built in 1988 – with several owners since – it’s gone from a high list of $13,995,000 (2011) to the lowest list of $12,999,00 (2007) to a high close $13,750,000 (2009) to the lowest and most recent close of $11,900,00 (asking price $12,950,000)
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!
