Business Philosophy

Highly intuitive when it comes to identifying customer's needs, I pursue the most efficient, timely and expert course to fulfill a buyer's or seller's particular demands, all the while protecting the client's needs and maintaining the highest ethical standards. I strive to exceed customer's expectations through every step of the buying and selling process. As an Accredited Buyers Representative, I work diligently to match buyers with the perfect home, providing helpful guidance along the way. For sellers, I bring excellent marketing skills to manage their listing, as well as a creative flair for showcasing their home in the best possible light. Maintaining an open line of communication with my clientele at every step throughout the real estate process, I believe that excellent service means accessibility, responsiveness and integrity, as well as enthusiasm and humor.

Experience

Originally from Seattle, with a BA from the University of Washington, I lived for many years in New York City, working in theater and television. Then I turned my talents - and love of houses and home design - to real estate, working with a major Manhattan real estate firm. Many years ago, while cruising on our sailboat, my husband and I discovered the Old Saybrook/Essex Shoreline area, which has been called the "Second Gold Coast of Connecticut" by the NY Times. We thought we had found a slice of heaven right here on earth! Even our standard poodle, Riley, loves his life here on the Shoreline, with his many canine friends! When we purchased our home, I jumped enthusiastically into the role of assistant contractor for our total house renovation, which gave me a real understanding of home construction. In addition to my other real estate business, I soon became the listing agent for a 450 acre, 84 unit condominium development, for which my team won the Home Builders Association of Connecticut's award for "Best Marketed Mid-Size Community" for the entire state of Connecticut.

Accomplishments and Awards

In addition to the Home Builder's award, I have been recognized on several occasions for being a top selling agent and also for providing outstanding service. Going above and beyond the call of duty for my client s, I feel that their testimonials can say it best for me:

"We want to let you know that we been so very impressed and pleased with her professionalism,...

Testimonials

I have been working with Sydney over a period of 10 years on four real estate transactions or potential transactions. The reason I keep returning to her for real estate representation is that she is so good at what she does. Sydney takes a sincere interest in each of her representations. She is always on top of everything. As a former real estate attorney, I do not always need Sydney taking care of everything, but she does anyway. In addition to being a great real estate agent, Sydney is bright, extremely knowledgeable, thorough and highly personable. I have recommended Sydney to others. That tells "the whole story".

John Pfarr

Working with this agency was a breeze! Would also recommend Sydney Anderson as the best realtor we have ever worked with! Truly paved the way for us and made everything easy as possible with amazing recommendations to settle us into our new community.

Caren Lewis

Sydney absolutely could not have paved the way on our purchase any better. She is the consummate professional, but engaging and very intuitive to our needs. She anticipated so many of our questions and delighted us by having the answers or recommendations before we ever asked them. Her years of experience and knowledge about the local "landscape" was incredibly helpful as we made a decision on which house was the one for us. After that decision, she facilitated a smooth path at every juncture she could with the attorney and our lender and then with fabulous recommendations on reputable and reliable businesses and tradesmen for work we needed. If you want someone who is truly arm in arm with you on the journey....it's Sydney....and her awesome sense of humor integrated beautifully into her professional practice doesn't hurt. Many thanks!

Amy McWilliams and Caren Lewis

We wanted to let you know how terrific we think Sydney Anderson is and how grateful we are to have found her. She worked tirelessly for almost three years to find us a house. And then she gave us great advice on how to negotiate a price. And, after we moved in, she provided us with all kinds of help and information about local resources. We cannot say enough!

Clare and Susan, East Haddam

Sydney is the consummate professional. She was very thorough, taking the various issues that arose in stride and making sure that every detail was resolved to the satisfaction of all parties. We had an outstanding experience working with Sydney, and she couldn't have been more conscientious or more pleasant. x
