Experience
I am a full time dedicated real estate professional. I basically dedicate all my time to selling your home, or finding you one to buy.

When I left the corporate world in 2004, I approached this venture like starting a new business. Full steam ahead with marketing, advertising, networking. I invested money, time, and effort into my business. Through the ups and downs in the real estate market, I try to keep the same philosophy - strong work ethic, spending money to make money, creative ideas, positive attitude, energy, and enthusiasm.

I am a very adept listing agent. I love the process of presenting and winning the listing, getting the house ‘show ready' for photography and viewings, and the whole marketing process which is quite extensive! I feel that it uses all of my skills of being a salesperson in NYC and I love it. I pride myself in pricing a home right, having it show well, marketing it, and negotiating a quick sale.

I have listed many homes for people who have moved away either for business or other reasons as well as people who are 'moving up' to their next home locally. Helping people get to the next stage of their lives is fun for me.

I also tend to sell many of my own listings. I think that is because of the advertising and marketing I do, I often get people coming to me directly.

I have worked with many young couples coming from NYC and just starting to have children. Rowayton and Darien are ideal places for families coming from the city as they offer a sense of community, ease of commute, beaches, restaurants, and good schools. I enjoy seeing my clients integrate into the community, and have helped many of them meet each other.

I have also worked with 'empty nesters' or people looking for a different lifestyle. I enjoy listening to what people want, and helping them find it.

I'd love to tell you more about what I can offer you, and more importantly find out what you are looking to do. I am a hard worker, but also empathetic, a good listener, and I hope, a bit fun!

Personal

I grew up in Fairfield, and my parents live in Wilton and West Norwalk. I lived in NYC for many years, then moved to North Stamford, and now live in Rowayton where I have been since 1994.

I am an avid racing and cruising sailor and am a member of Stamford Yacht Club. So, I am very familiar with many of the towns in lower Fairfield County and can help buyers determine what town is right for them based on their needs.

My husband and I recently built a new house very close to town. It was a great experience after dealing with so many builders and selling many new construction homes to finally build my own! It is great to be able to walk to restaurants, Pinkney park, Five Mile River etc.

We both love to sail and now own an X412 yacht which we enjoy cruising. I have also raced for 20 years and still love that.

Besides real estate and sailing, I am an animal lover. I volunteer at PAWS in Norwalk.

I love to travel but haven't found the time to do enough of that!
