About Me About Me

Exceptional communication, end-to-end service, warmth, and relentless attention to detail are what every client can expect when choosing to work with Amy. Throughout her 30-year career in sales, she has found that all meaningful success begins by listening intently and understanding each customer’s individual needs—skills that are the cornerstone of her business philosophy and practice. Amy brings her keen negotiating skills to every transaction and revels in the opportunity to help her clients achieve their objectives. 

She has held a number of senior management positions for start-up businesses throughout their full-scale operations, making her particularly skilled at moving quickly yet thoughtfully while wearing many different hats along the way. Amy, a resident of Ridgefield for the past 12 years, knew this would be her home as soon as she turned onto Main Street. "After leaving New York City and renting in Norwalk, my husband and I would go on weekend excursions to explore other communities in an effort to decide where we wanted to set down roots. Ridgefield's vibrant downtown was a big draw and we immediately felt a sense of community, something we valued greatly. Through the years, Ridgefield has delivered on everything we were looking for, from amazing people to our many cultural events, exceptional schools, great restaurants, and unique shops.  Not only have we grown to adore our community, but also a great number of the nearby towns.  I consider myself extremely blessed to live in Ridgefield and Fairfield County. Amy was reared in Wilmington, Delaware, and received her bachelor's degree in textile marketing and management from Thomas Jefferson University. She has been married to Jerry, the assistant vice president for public affairs at Pace University, for more than 20 years. She is the proud mother of their two children, Chloe and Will. When she's not working, you can find her enjoying live music (their daughter's band), supporting their son and his high school teammates from the sidelines, having dinner with friends, walking their dog Nora, or on a family trip.
