Seasoned real estate agent closes sale on one of the last remaining iconic buildings in town, and also handles two highest year-to-date commercial sales county-wide
Kent, Conn. – July 13, 2015 – William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty announced today that Karen Casey, a Broker Associate from the firm’s Kent brokerage with over 30 years of experience selling both residential and commercial real estate, has closed three significant commercial sales in Litchfield County, Conn. The Kent Railroad Station, a historic building in the center of the village of Kent, is the most recent of her three closings, the combined dollar volume of which is $1,589,000.
The Kent Railroad Station was built in the mid 1800s and later completely restored, preserving many of its original details including an old baggage scale that was updated by its most recent owners. The station is regarded as one of Kent’s last iconic buildings, and has been featured in various local magazines and newspapers for its historic landmark quality in town. The station housed popular local retail businesses for a number of years.
Casey also recently represented a turn-of-the-century retail building in the historic village of New Preston, Conn. 13 East Shore Road closed just weeks prior to the Kent Railroad Station sale. The three-building complex overlooks the East Asputuck River and waterfall. Both sales are the highest commercial sales recorded year-to-date in Litchfield County. Casey is additionally responsible for a five-year lease of the former children’s clothing store “Three Monkeys and Me” retail space in Kent Village Barns, a local shopping complex located off Main Street in Kent, Conn. The spot will now become a tea shop, and is set to open in early August.
“I thoroughly enjoy the commercial side of my business,” said Casey. “It’s very exciting to see our commercial spaces filled with new energy, and I am extremely pleased I was able to accomplish all three of these closings in Litchfield County this year.”
Some of Casey’s past commercial sales include the Old Kent Town Hall, now an antique store, an art gallery in Cornwall Bridge, the Kent Medical Building in Kent, Conn., as well as the former Masonic Lodge in Cornwall, Conn., which now serves as a residential home.
