One has to wonder, if 140 Wallacks Drive in Stamford would have a deal today, if it had begun it’s pricing journey similarly to 209 Long Neck @ $12M+. It’s long, continuing journey began over 1000 days ago when it was introduced at $18M. It is not listed on the Greenwich MLS – not smart…
There are considerations to pricing that go beyond the square footage and acreage – and these two properties tell that story. Pricing any waterfront property relies on where that shoreline is. Wallacks Drive is twice the square footage, nearly twice the acreage – so one would think that these differences would compensate for Stamford vs Darien.
Market trends rule – and may be one part of the reason that Long Neck has a deal and Wallack’s Drive does not.

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!
