Since joining Halstead Property in 2009, Eileen Hanford has consistently been a top producer for the company, most notably she is among the top 5% of producing agents within Halstead's tri-state offices. "I am humbled by the responsibility of this profession," says Hanford. "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 Hanford. Her parents owned a real estate company in Whitestone, NY. When Hanford 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. Hanford is an expert on Darien, Rowayton, New Canaan, and Greenwich and has closed more than $270M in real estate deals since 2005.

Hanford has long been a supporter of local charities including Person-To-Person, The Darien Foundation for Technology & Community, and The Convent of St. Brigitta. She also 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.

Recent honors in 2013 include: Halstead's Top Producer in Connecticut, Most Sales Units Closed, Highest Priced Deal earning the coveted Diamond Club designation for selling a home over $10M, and Realtor of the Year for the Darien & Rowayton Offices. Hanford is a member of the Darien Board of Realtors, Darien Multiple Listing Service, Connecticut Association of Realtors, and National Association of Realtors.
