Professional Specialty

While maintaining excellence for all clients, Sky specializes in equestrian and luxury homes in MA and CT. She brings her personal experience from building two farms from the ground up, as well as a rich history servicing clients in the luxury market to assist her clients with these unique properties.

Community Involvement

Sky has been an active participant in her children's various schools and PTA organizations in Colorado, Massachusetts and now New Canaan, CT, as well as being elected to be a School Board member in Pepperell, MA.

She and her daughters volunteer weekly at Waveny in New Canaan since COVID began. She looks forward to becoming more involved in activities as society opens back up.

In 2021, Sky also started a very active book club called "Radical Readers"!

Personal

Trained as a corporate attorney in New York and Connecticut, Sky switched paths and obtained her real estate license in 2014 after her family moved to CO. She has put her training in negotiation skills and critical thinking to use for her clients ever since. Sky knows the critical importance of negotiations in real estate transactions and looks forward to putting her skills to use for you.

Although raised and educated in New England, Sky and her family moved to Colorado when her children were still young to take advantage of the incredible life-style that Colorado had to offer. She pursued her real estate career in the Rocky Mountains until aging family and New England called her back east in 2018. She and her family have owned and built two horse farms from the ground up and lived in tightly packed suburban neighborhoods, so they understand how diverse residential real estate can be! Now licensed in MA and CT, she is grateful to re-establish herself and her family in New Canaan, CT and to be an active member of the local community.

Experience

"Delivering Dream Homes"
Whether it's a luxury home with the finest of details, a home with stables and an indoor arena, or a condo in town, Sky can help you find and close on your dream home. Let her make your dream a reality.

Mission Statement:
To make sure that her clients know that she listened to what they needed and wanted; advocated in their best interests throughout the transaction; and did so with the utmost professionalism and outstanding communication of the various options available to them along the way.

What this means for the people who choose to work with her:
Each transaction, just like every client, is different, in real estate: some sellers want to maximize a listing's exposure in the market, while others prefer a highly discreet negotiation; a buyer may focus on a strict budget, while others may seek highly customized amenities. Shy's job, as a real estate professional, is to tailor her approach based on her client's needs and to help navigate the process from beginning to closing. However, negotiating terms, providing incredible referrals, and educating her clients as to what possible outcomes they can expect is just the beginning, because she wants to provide an outstanding experience as well. We all know deals can be smooth or rocky, but at closing, Sky wants her clients to feel like they got the best experience possible under circumstances they understood.

Niche Marketing

Sky grew up riding horses at Ox Ridge Hunt Club in Darien, CT. She continued riding into college. In 2015, she and her family bought their first horse property in Colorado and built their first barn. In 2018, they moved back east to Massachusetts and created their second farm. While their horses are now boarded locally, Sky brings her own personal experience and passion for the sport to her clients searching for an equestrian home. Whether a 35 stall facility or a shed row in the back yard, Sky will bring her skills to help you. She knows the difference between hot tape, split rail and barbed wire and can help you with your horsey needs!
