This seems strange, and I remember it better than most, since I called the owner for the listing on the day that it last expired – 11/07/13 – 1 day after my birthday…we had a conversation, and I know that it didn’t go back on the market the next day…but that’s what the MLS shows at the moment.
9 months since it was last active, it is reported as “pending” – although I believe that it was in contingent contract after neighboring 189 Old Mill Rd closed. This information seems odd as well, since it shows that it was pending and closed on the same day for both $995,000 and $900,000…
189 OLD MILL RD – 06831
The sellers bought 185 Old Mill Rd in 2004 for $1,600,000 and then purchased additional property for $75K for a total of 1.03 acres…Zillow reports that this was the amount of the last sale, so the property appears to have increased in value by approx. 1,700% – not so much – although in fairness, their zestimate is in he vincity of asking price.
185 OLD MILL – 06831
They listed it 819 days ago for $2,375,000 where it sat with no price reduction for 351 days.
I somehow remember a price between $2,375,000 and the current list of $1,395,000 but I can’t say for sure…I wish that I could find an email where I sent the property, but the MLS changed from their previous format to flex and those emails are gone 😦
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!
