I hosted a broker open house here when I was with the listing firm, in 2013. Price at the time was $3,095,000 down from the original list of $3,295,000. I thought at the time that it should have been $2.7M, and now they most likely will get less than the current list price of $2,695,000. The sellers bought it in 2003 for $1,850,000, and surely spent a fair amount making the master what it is, and renovating top to bottom in 2011 – so hopefully they were happy living there while they did…
THE HOUSE IS IN THE MIDDLE OF THIS SHOT
The 5 bedroom, 3+ bath, 4100+SF home is really nicely done…and one of my favorite features was that when looking out from the patio, directly off the kitchen, there you are on the golf course…perhaps the photos should have been updated once the summer kicked in…because it is so much prettier with leaves, green grass and flowers…
The listing broker is related to the owner – I wonder if the same analogy can be drawn as when saying that the cobbler’s kids often go barefoot?
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!
