My Listings and Sales
Brigitte is the best real estate agent we have ever worked with! Because if historically low inventory the process was very long but she was very patient with us. She also was very understanding on our very unique requirements. Thank you Brigitte!Srinivas Yellayi
Our second opportunity to work with Brigitte, and the outcome was fantastic! Brigitte assisted us with the entire process to sell my dad’s townhouse – she guided us, staged the home, and listed the property which all presented very well. We were so fortunate to have 10 showings in the first week, with multiple offers above asking price! Brigitte worked with us during the offer process, she recommended contacts for a closing attorney, and she fully orchestrated final buyer walk through and acceptance. Brigitte’s support was amazing and professional throughout the entire process, making the transition for my dad simple and very smooth.Edward Ostafin
Excellent from the beginning to the end!Elisabeth Robinson

Brigitte provided timely responses throughout our listing and selling experience. Despite working in a difficult market and with challenging buyers she remained professional and supportive. We would not hesitate to recommend her to friends and family.
Brigitte was not only professional but she was easy to talk to if you had any questions, concerns, or demands. She works hard to find the place that you want and will meet with you multiple times to bring you to see numerous rentals.
We were very fortunate to work with Brigitte on buying our first home. During the selection process she was very helpful at pointing out positives and negatives about each home, communicating between us and sellers, and remained patient while we figured out what we wanted. Once we finally selected a home, she helped us in the negotiation, during the inspection, and stayed on top of things until the closing. Brigitte is friendly, attentive, and a pleasure to work with.
Brigitte was just what we were looking for in an agent and more. She dealt with all our needs with a sense of urgency and was on top of things before we could even think about it. The purchase went very smooth from start to finish with no surprises. She was also able to give us a lot of references and information about the town and compare it to other towns as well. All in all.. highly recommend her!
Brigitte was my Real Estate Agent in selling my Single family House. Knowing what I know now, I will certainly pick Brigitte again to sell my next house for I can rest easy knowing she will handle it from start to finish. She is an expert in her field and knows what she is talking about. The main attractive suit for me which I found in Brigitte is Integrity and Honesty. When I listed the house with her, I wanted the house immediately on the market. She sprung into action. Within hours, she staged the house, used her Good camera to take pics, and within the same day, my house got listed. She didn't waste any time. Then days later, she was able to schedule with her professional photographer and retook the photos and updated it. House was priced right. Whenever there were issues, she addressed it and resolved it. She was very methodical and thorough in her work and it's very effective. I appreciated her negotiation skills towards the end. I would hire Brigitte, sit in the back seat and let her do her JOB. It can be that simple with Brigitte. Thanks, Brigitte for helping me sell my house.
I referred Brigitte to my brother-in-law and his wife to assist them with a move into the Hartford area from Fairfield County. Brigitte was instrumental in helping them narrow down their search to the best town and house for their family. I would not hesitate to send my friends and family to Brigitte in the future.
Brigitte was referred to us by our mortgage consultant. She turned out to be the perfect fit for us as she is also German, which made communication as easy and smooth as it could get, and she also shares the same kind of „moving experience“ with us as she and her family went through the exact same relocation process a few years ahead of us. Because of that we were able to build a great chemistry from the get-go. One of her greatest skills was emphasizing with what we were really looking for and to „facilitate“ pro‘s and con‘s, which goes way beyond of simply trying to sell a home. Brigitte communicated extremely well with us, efficiently and flawlessly. Always available when needed. This was a very important asset for us, since we basically started the process before even entering the country. We had to have the initial (virtual) viewing while we were waiting at the gate for our flight to the US. We feel that she went above and beyond throughout the entire process. A+!
