Back on the market after many failed attempts, and another example of a property that was purchased during the heady “anyone can get a mortgage for anything no matter if you could pay it back or not” days. Treading rather than sinking (from the mortgage perspective), the owner paid $2,395,000 in 2005 and tried but failed to get $2,595,000 in 2008 – with 6 other expired listings…It sits on 5 acres – and I’m sure that a builder would love to get it for $1.2. Let’s hope that they get an end user who likes one level living, indoor pools or doesn’t care about going through the hassle of town hall and expense of the removal and updates.

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! View all posts by DEB HALSEY REAL ESTATE
