2004 saw my introduction to real estate. Prior to this, I enjoyed a successful career in marketing, public relations and fundraising in the publishing and financial sectors in New York City and London, and later for a professional theater in the Berkshires. This experience, and the particular skills I amassed, enable me to bring a more inventive and resourceful approach to my real estate practice and to make my clients' experience - when either buying or selling a home - a great one.
I serve clients throughout Litchfield and northern Fairfield Counties and specialize in listing and selling second homes. With its abundance of lakes, rivers, mountains and farms - and whether as a full-timer or weekender - living here is truly like living as if on vacation all year long.
In addition to my experience as a marketer and copywriter, I hold a Bachelor's Degree in English from New York University and a Master's Degree in Anglo-American Literature from London University. I am an ardent supporter of the arts and served as President of the renowned Sherman Players for six years - while also producing many shows there - and was co-Founder and President of the Candlewood Children's Choir.
Having lived in different parts of the world, there is still no more sacred a spot to me than my waterfront home on Candlewood Lake in Sherman - a town and a place with which I have a long history. I have come to love this beautiful corner of Connecticut and to value the lifestyle it offers - an area rich in scenic, rural splendors yet with an increasingly sophisticated number of restaurants, galleries, shops, community and cultural events.
A client recently told me that I was the best at what I do. I strive to uphold that standard of service with every client and take pride in the trusting relationship developed with each of them.
"I have purchased seven homes in the tri-state area over the past 35 years and working with Irit Granger was certainly one of the best home buying experiences I have had. She was working as a dual agent in this last purchase and I had complete confidence in her expertise, knowledge of the area and market, and impartiality in the transaction. She was able to negotiate fairly with both parties and quickly complete the transaction. I was told by everyone in the area that she was the best, and I now share that opinion. I would highly recommend her to both buyers and sellers." Jon Bourassa
