It’s funny – when you’re a realtor, you acquire a sixth sense of when a property is about to go on the market…
69 PORCHUCK RD – $6,095,000
First there were a band of tree trimmers (never before seen) and landscapers (they normally come on Friday – this was on a Wednesday) Then more work vans than I’ve seen in the 2 years that we have lived here. Then, on a subsequent day last week, 5 or more firetrucks/emergency vehicles pulled into the driveway…My hunch was that someone set off an alarm and the owner may have been out of town. Since I’d only ever seen him twice when we first moved in, and didn’t get the sense that he wanted a social relationship – off he went with his Bassett hound, leaving me to wonder if he lived alone in this big house with his loveable dog – somehow, I think his name was Henry – the dog that is…
The current owner bought this property in 2003 for $4,700,000 – and with back country Greenwich, as much as I love living here, not getting the love that it once enjoyed, it will be interesting to see where the price settles. My guess is closer to where it last sold…Maybe $200K more – but I’ve been wrong before.
6 Bedrooms – 7 full and 2 half baths – 4 Fireplaces – just over 9000 SF – it has a finished lower level – 4+ acres – pool/terrace…
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!
