57 Hillside – in contract with a list price of $1,699,000 – looks less fortunate from the front than it does from the back…I’m being kind – and for years, the primary photo was this one…which 99% of the time, it’s the front or aerial shot of the property:
57 HILLSIDE DR – YIKES!
…then a smart realtor changed it up a bit, and thought outside the box – and took this charming shot of the backyard, with bridge and the tree off to the left, so that perhaps one doesn’t focus on the flat roofed undersized garage..
Located on the thoroughfare to the high school – this property began it’s sale journey a long time ago – and when it didn’t sell – it rented – but when sales begin to improve, often single family rental prices come down. From the history, you can see from when it was first sold, then rebuilt – on/off and rented…
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!
