ORIGINALLY ASKING $1.275 THEN DROPPED TO $1.250 – I’M A LITTLE SURPRISED AT THE FINAL PRICE – ALTHOUGH IT WAS ON THE MARKET FOR QUITE A WHILE – 281 DAYS…IT WAS A MOVE IN READY HOME, AND HWEN I SAW IT, MY IMPRESSION WAS THAT ALTHOUGH IT NOT HAVE PERFECT FLOW, AND THE SIZE ROOMS THAT MOST PEOPLE WANT TODAY, IT WAS WELL MAINTAINED AND CUTE. MY GUESS (AND ONLY A GUESS) IS THAT PERHAPS MONEY WAS TAKEN OFF THE TABLE AFTER INSPECTIONS – BEING THAT THE HOUSE WAS BUILT IN 1910 – THEY MAY HAVE SEEN A COUPLE OF AREAS OF CONCERN…I DON’T RECALL HAVING LOOKED AT THE “MECHANICALS” DURING THE BROKER OPEN HOUSE…THE SELLERS BOUGHT IT FOR $560K IN 2001 AND EXPANDED AND RENOVATED IT…SO IT MAY BE A BREAK EVEN SCENARIO – ALBEIT THEY MADE A NICE HOME FOR THEMSELVES FOR MANY YEARS.
TWO OTHER PENDING TRANSACTIONS IN RIVERSIDE AND OLD GREENWICH…
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!
