I am not sure why one would think that they could get top dollar at the bottom of the market…but this seller must have been on the 2005 wave, and thought that it still was going strong in ’08…placing it back on the market at $3,650,000 and finally giving up in 2009 at $3,495,000….and can you believe that not one single buyer thought to pony up $25 K for rent? shocking!
Anyway, 7 Highgate is back for more at a more realistic (although in my opinion still too high) price of $2,450,000. Not even 4000 SF – 5 bedrooms and non-conforming .68 acres in RA1.
1333 KING ST – $2,450,000
And then we have 1333 King St, which was first introduced to the market in 2012 for $4,595,000 – clearly they must have thought that if was “Chieftanesque”, although didn’t realize that The Chieftans is no longer commanding the grand prices as when North of the Parkway had “estate” cache – and it is not in an association, but a bit closer to the airport :-)…does that trade for train tracks which is not objectionable to most buyers today?
6500+ SF , 5 bedrooms, 6+ baths, pool, built in 2003 – it’s priced under assessed value
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!
