There are many qualities and skills that go into being an excellent real estate professional - integrity, in-depth community and market knowledge, marketing savvy, effective negotiation skills and a high-quality professional network, all of which are hallmarks of how I work.

That said, in my experience as a real estate professional, I've also found that providing the very best service is essentially about putting my clients first. This means keeping myself accessible, being a good listener as well as a good communicator, and responding quickly to your needs.

I have found great fulfillment in my long second career as a Real Estate Broker. In keeping with my world view that you bring Who you are to What you do (vs being defined by your occupation) the creativity, problem solving, analysis, listening, teaching and working as a member of the troupe that I used, relied on, and nurtured as a Dance choreographer, performer and teacher I use daily in helping clients with real estate transactions.  I have great satisfaction helping Seller or Buyer clients successfully complete a real estate transaction. To be my clients’ trusted advisor is of paramount importance to me. My clients know that I have their best interest as my top priority. As Clients for Life the people I work with know that I am committed to them Before, During and After the signing of the specific transaction. 

This "client first" philosophy has always been my approach and it requires me to continually improve my skills and ways of doing business. In addition, I've found that the latest technologies are enabling me to do everything I've always done, only much more quickly and efficiently. They've also helped me to extend the range of services I provide to my clients.

So when you decide that you'd like to buy or sell a home in the Connecticut Shoreline area, please contact me.
