When considering buying or selling, my advice is to always choose a realtor with hyper-local experience. The ability to understand the subtleties of a local market is paramount to achieving success. Luckily that’s where I excel. I deliver decades-long experience in this real estate community.

I grew up in Fairfield County and have a long history of living and working in New Canaan. I have spent over 20 years owning my own business and working in my family’s real estate business, which includes property management, general contracting and home building. My experience has taught me to listen carefully to clients so I can successfully meet their targets and needs. It’s hard to adequately explain but I’m passionate about the entire process of buying, selling and building. Whether it’s a relatively straightforward challenge to find the right home or whether it’s a more complex process of designing and building a new construction, my experience covers every facet of real estate.

In addition to having strong business connections in the area, I’m also a busy mother of four boys, three in college and one in middle school. I cheer them on as they play sports, one for the University of Richmond’s Lacrosse team, twins for the Saint Lawrence University football team and one for the New Canaan school football and Lacrosse leagues. The numerous personal connections I’ve made through my sons has been incredibly rewarding and has further strengthened my ties to New Canaan. If you attend games, you’ll probably recognize me as one of the parents always in the stands! On another personal note, I’m proud to say that I’m an Italian born U.S. citizen and I speak both English and Italian. I am privileged to come from generations of deep-rooted Italian American culture and strong family bonds. It’s a source of immense pride that represents the quintessential American success story. I relish my numerous connections to others who share my cultural heritage.

In closing, the process of home ownership, whether building, buying or selling, is a complex undertaking with many moving parts. Having a deep understanding of the local market and the ever-changing landscape helps me provide vital experience when helping clients achieve their goals. Don’t hesitate to contact me when you’re thinking about real estate. I’m always available to discuss the local market. It would be a privilege to hear from you and to guide you to a successful outcome. That’s what I do best.
