Spanning four decades from one coast to another, Eileen Hanford’s knowledge of the real estate industry and experience of multi-economic real estate landscapes and markets have provided her with an unparalleled expertise to navigate, negotiate, and close a deal and serves as the foundation of her success. She has received multiple "Agent of the Year" awards and boasts the top #1 agent spot in Darien year after year.

Since joining Halstead in 2009, Eileen has ranked among the top 1% of producing agents within Halstead's tri-state offices and has recently found great success in the expansion of her business with a full support staff including a business manager and three supporting agents. Eileen is always one step ahead of the market and evolves her success around where the real estate market demands her to be. Where passion meets purpose is the foundation of Eileen’s success.

"I am humbled by the responsibility of this profession," Eileen says. "I love my clients and understand how important and even emotional the buying and selling of a home can be. It is probably one of the biggest decisions a person can make and I find great joy in sharing my hard-won expertise and helping people through the process."

The real estate business is no stranger to Eileen. Her parents owned a real estate company in Whitestone, NY. When Eileen moved to Darien in 1981, she decided to begin her own career in real estate. Known for her diligence and dedication, she has turned clients and fellow agents into trusted friends. Eileen is an expert on Darien, Rowayton, New Canaan, and Greenwich and has closed $600M in real estate deals since 2005.

Eileen has long been a supporter of local charities including Person-To-Person, The Darien Foundation, Hackers for Hope, and The Convent of St. Birgitta. She remains involved with Darien High School through Blue Wave lacrosse, football, and hockey, all near and dear to her heart as her three children graduated from Darien High School. Two of her children have returned to Darien to raise their own families. In addition to also being a real estate agent, Eileen's daughter Tami Hughes instructs at the Walter Schalk School of Dance. Eileen's son, Jamie Hanford, founded Force 5 Lacrosse. This is a tribute to the value she holds for Darien as a town, a community, and an incredible place to live and raise a family.

Eileen awards in 2018 included Top 1 Percent of Halstead Gross Production, Team of the Year for Connecticut, and Top Agent for the Darien office. Additional honors include Halstead's Top Agent of the Year Connecticut in 2017, 2016, 2015, and 2013; Top Agent of the Year for Darien and Rowayton; Highest Number of Listings Closed; Most Sales Deals Closed; and in 2013, Highest-Priced Deal earning the coveted Diamond Club designation for selling a home over $10M.
