In real estate, it is the accountability, the one on one connection between you and your client, that makes you successful. Clients that work with Amy Kirst will appreciate her enthusiasm, integrity, knowledge of the area as well as her command of the market. A Madison native, Amy has been a top producer for many years, selling homes from Branford to Old Lyme, and inland from Killingworth to Deep River. If you ask her why she is so successful, she will tell you that it is easy to sell homes in areas that you love. "These towns offer so much to those who live in them..a lifestyle, communities that care about their residents and small town quaintness and warmth." Amy enjoys working with new clients, and appreciates the repeat business and referrals from past clients calling her again to sell their home, purchase a new one or both. She feels that communication with clients is paramount, not only for business but also because she cares about their happiness and quality of life. Amy originally started out as a biochemist but felt that she was more of a "people person"; she ventured into real estate through the urging of a prominent real estate lawyer and has never looked back. Amy is married to a builder that builds and renovates homes on the shoreline. She has four children that have grown up in Madison; two graduating from Hand High School, one from Choate and one from Taft. A consistent multi-million dollar producer, Amy has always ranked in the top percentage of agents for homes sold and has received numerous awards for her performance throughout her career. She is a member of the National Association of Realtors, the Connecticut Association of Realtors, as well as the New Haven Middshore Association of Realtors.

Amy Kirst marketed and sold our house for us in a short time frame in summer 2021. Throughout the process, Amy was a dependable source of expertise, immense experience, and practical advice. Among other things, Amy has the benefit of a considerable local network and was able to put us in touch with local specialists when we had to do some unexpected repairs. We felt guided and supported and appreciated Amy's combination of human warmth, professionalism, and humor. It was truly a pleasure working with Amy.David Milne and Emily Milne
Amy was instrumental in helping us finalize and purchase our home. She brought an expertise to the process that few can match. She was able to dial in on the finer details of all of the homes we visited that helped us look at the homes from a very practical perspective. She was excellent at pointing out important details like the age and quality of mechanicals, appliances and other items that could have easily been overlooked. She did an excellent job of removing the blinders from some of the houses that looked great at first glance but may have had issues shortly after purchase. She was never shy about asking for more details on items that may have been concealed at first glance by the sellers. Her honest, practical approach gave us the piece of mind that we were making the right decision on either passing on a home or ultimately purchasing the home we did. I would be hard pressed to find someone who could represent us as well as Amy did. Whenever I hear of anyone looking to buy a home I can confidently say Amy is the best in the business!Andrew
