About Me

Business PhilosophyIn today's real estate market place, I would stress this ancient Latin warning, 'buyer beware'! Since my inception as a realtor, nearly a quarter century ago, I have witnessed buyers' increasing reliance on internet sites to educate themselves on available homes for sale. They deprive themselves of the overview that can only be offered by a seasoned agent who has been intimately involved in the Greenwich marketplace, working with builders, inspectors, appraisers, attorneys, contractors, and, literally, hundreds of contented buyers through a variety of market conditions. Soliciting the professional help that is available to them through buyer agency, buyers will inevitably purchase the home that best satisfies their needs at the most favorable price, AND, this help is FREE. Buyer agents do not get payed for their help by their clients!
I have been rewarded, not by my clients' pocketbooks, but by the pleasure of watching their children grow up in a house that I helped them purchase, and being a part of their families for a whole generation, eventually, even working with their children, now grown, in finding the perfect home.
My generosity of time, concern, knowledge and creativity is well known in the Greenwich real estate community, and has resulted in my garnering annually for almost 24 years, awards for my work, including 'Elite' status (top 2% of agents nationwide), 'Top Ten' and 'Top Twenty' agents in Connecticut/New York, and top agent in the Greenwich Office nearly every month that the honor was conferred. Shortly after starting my real estate career, I sold the most expensive home in Connecticut (1998) for over $8,000,000.
My estimate of asking price, and probable ultimate selling price when listing a house for sale almost always tallies with my intuitive estimate, based on having sold over 500 homes during my career. Having taught creative writing as an instructor at University of Cincinnati, I have produced some of the most exciting and original ad copy, and my success as an artist offers free 'staging' advice to sellers, and often makes the difference in selling their home.
I have devoted FULL TIME attention to my clients, both buyers and sellers, and they have rewarded me by adopting me into their lives. My career as a realtor has been my greatest pleasure, and I hope to help as many folks as possible come to Greenwich to stay, and enjoy its bounties as much as I have.Education and TrainingBesides a B.A. (English Lit.), M.A. (British and American Lit.), and Ph.D (British and American Lit.), I completed the coursework for a Ph.D. in Judaica, and attended New York University School of Law. I received my training in real estate at New York University as well, at their Real Estate Institute. I held a New York real estate license prior to moving to Connecticut, and I was the President for several years of a 100 apartment Co-op at 520 E. 76th St. in New York City.!Awards and DesignationsTop 10 agents in Connecticut/Westchester 2006/2007.International President's Elite (top 1.6% of 61,000 Coldwell Banker agents nationwide)-1998-2007.International President's Circle 2000, 2001, 2008, 2018International Diamond Society 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2017International Sterling Society 2014, 2016President's Club 1997.Coldwell Banker Agent of the Month (transactional volume/dollar volume): 42 Time WinnerLargest sale of the Year in CT-1998 ($8,000,000)Sold to date: over 250 houses/condos; $255 Million+Most creative advertising in print media!
