A Darien native, Kassandra Carrara DeMaio has always had an appreciation for coastal Connecticut and a passion for residential real estate and design. After double majoring in Marketing and Business Law at Tulane University, her love for homes and decor inspired her to take interior design classes at the New York School of Interior Design where she had her first taste of residential design.
While living in the city, Kassandra established a successful career in public relations where she quickly rose through the ranks securing highly coveted positions at top PR firm Edelman as well as at global cosmetics giant Shiseido Americas Corporation. Working with high-profile talent and industry-leading clientele in a fast-paced, rapidly evolving industry allowed Kassandra to refine her communications, negotiations, and relationship management skills.
After connecting with her now husband Nick, an architect, her longstanding passion for home design was fully embraced by a fellow residential real estate enthusiast. Ultimately, they relocated back to their joint hometown of Darien and the first-time home buying process is what sparked Kassandra’s decision to pursue real estate.
Kassandra understands the intricacies and nuances of purchasing and selling an asset as valuable as a home as well as the importance of supporting clients as they navigate this exciting yet sometimes challenging journey. She knows how to identify the most strategic real estate investment opportunities and has the vision and determination to help clients find their dream home. She offers her vast local and professional expertise, enthusiasm for residential real estate, and well-connected network to help her clients.
In her free time, Kassandra enjoys paddle boarding and kayaking with her family in Rowayton, taking long walks with friends around her favorite neighborhoods in Darien, and planning her next home reno project with her husband.
