As your real estate agent, it is important to me that I do more than just meet your expectations...I want to exceed them. I have been a real estate agent since 2001. I am constantly anticipating the needs of my clients. That means I might: pack a cooler of food and drinks for a relocating client who needs to cover a lot of ground in a limited time; or send comparables to a buyer who is deliberating about what to offer for a house; or take a potential seller to view active comparables so that they can truly understand the pricing of their home. I take great pride in providing a service that my client may not have even recognized or articulated that they actually need.
As a former Psychologist, I have found that my background translates well into Real Estate. I recognize that even a seemingly "positive" move is stressful and will do what I can to ease this transition. I am an excellent listener. For a buyer, I will really pay attention to their description of what they are looking for in an ideal home. I'll preview inventory promptly and won't waste time showing those homes that are not in line with my client's criteria. For a seller, I will listen to what they have liked in their current home, and use this in my marketing materials. When negotiating, I'll listen to the other agent's covert communications and use these to my client's advantage. I am also an effective and clear communicator and have absolute respect for confidentiality. My clients know that they can trust me and that I will always tell them the truth; even if it means losing a potential deal.
I have lived in lower Fairfield County for 20+ years with my husband and two daughters. This time has allowed me to appreciate the nuances of the different towns. As a family, we have personally utilized many of the amenities first-hand. Many of my clients continue to use me as a personal resource for years after their closings. I can provide lists of vendors, restaurants, where to shop, nursery schools, local doctors, etc. It is quite typical for me to even provide guided tours to clients who are new to this area. I enjoy this part of my job immensely.
I am a member of the National Association of Realtors as well as our local Mid-Fairfield Board of Realtors. I am a recipient of both the Leading Edge, the President's Circle Awards and have consistently made Honor's Circle. I am a board member of SEPTA (Special Education PTA) and our town's Gourmet Club. I am currently in the process of starting a small wine tasting group, and am also a participant of a local book club. I enjoy working out, socializing, and MOST OF ALL MY JOB AS A REAL ESTATE AGENT.
