53 Ridge Street – located a hop and skip to the train and 95 – was prepared beautifully for market. And guess what, they got a deal after 47 days – and closed yesterday for $1.6M with a list of $1.650. The sellers bought it in 2005 for $1.3m. They also added to the porch, making it wrap around (perfect for a turn of the century house – and one wonders whether it was like this in the first place.) They also added a bedroom and bath to the house – obviously everything was made relevant to what buyers are looking for today…very cute.
DEB HALSEY REAL ESTATE
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!
