20 West End Avenue closed this week – and got within 91% of the original price.
This proves again, that even with a rear lot, with a pool on the marsh, on a not so tony street, buyers want current, relevant (and some might even say trendy) move-in homes with new finishes. Many of the finishes in properties like this (mini glass tiles, industrial fixtures and bamboo), will mark this era – a similar effect of the “builders” homes of the 90’s with their exterior peaks and specific granite counter tops. It’s a cool house, at least for a minute.
Surprising was that the only mention of energy efficiency was that it is heated and cooled with hydro air – there was more emphasis on speaking to the “vinotech” wine dispenser, the Mieile coffee maker and the outdoor experience…included at the open sided cabana is a flat screen TV – pony up for a fun summer!
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!
