My path to real estate was inspired by a simple idea: to look for a better way to market exceptional homes. Coming from a fashion background, it seemed logical to think that if “makeovers” could work for faces, hair and fashion, they could probably work for homes as well. My idea? Enhance the product itself (i.e. the house) and not focus exclusively on advertising. Of course, advertising and marketing are part of any effective sales strategy, but the most important element is the presentation when a property is introduced...

My path to real estate was inspired by a simple idea: to look for a better way to market exceptional homes. Coming from a fashion background, it seemed logical to think that if “makeovers” could work for faces, hair and fashion, they could probably work for homes as well. My idea? Enhance the product itself (i.e. the house) and not focus exclusively on advertising. Of course, advertising and marketing are part of any effective sales strategy, but the most important element is the presentation when a property is introduced. 

This nuanced approach, dedicated attention to packaging and presentation has been my method for over 30 years in real estate. It has proved to be terrifically successful, to the delight of my clients — who often compared me to Mary Poppins! I gave seller seminars, was interviewed on national TV and carried bolts of fabric and accessories around with me at all times! Since then, the concept of "staging" homes for sale has continued to gain traction and is now an essential aspect of real estate marketing.

It has always been my goal to give my clients the best possible advice and assistance ... and to make an impactful difference in their real estate experience. I hold myself to the highest ethical and performance standards and always do my best to provide exemplary service to buyers and sellers alike. I am frequently thanked for my patience and persistence, and I am absolutely thrilled when the transaction is complete and my clients have become my new friends for life -- the best reward of all!

Testimonials

Carolyn helped our family when we moved to New Canaan. She understood our needs as a growing family and helped us find the most amazing rental property in a town where nice, affordable rental properties are extremely hard to come by. Her negotiation skills, responsiveness, and general enthusiasm struck me as unique. This is truly a broker who cares about the buyer/seller. She's continued to stay in touch and has become a friend. When we buy our first home, she will certainly be the first person we call.

We recently moved to the states and were completely lost when Carolyn took us under her wings.  She is a very knowledgeable broker in the New Canaan area. What I found most appealing in my time with Carolyn is that she is motivated to find you what you want, she is willing to work with your schedule and also comes highly recommended by everyone!With Carolyn you are in good hands!

Carolyn helped my husband and me find our "dream home" in New Canaan. She is a true real estate professional with over 30 years of experience in New Canaan and Fairfield County. Carolyn listens to her clients and guides them to make a great real estate decision! She operates with  integrity, and she always has the best interest of her client in mind. Carolyn has mastered the art of negotiation so that all involved parties feel listened to and considered in the transaction. She pays attention to detail and she makes sure that her clients are informed throughout the real estate transaction. I have referred friends and colleagues to Carolyn, and I always receive great feedback and a big thank-you!

Jan Schaefer

Carolyn is a long time resident of New Canaan and knows everything there is to know. Not only is her knowledge of the market and area an asset but her approach goes above and beyond any other real estate agent we have ever worked with. We would highly recommend Carolyn for both purchasing as well as selling a home. She is always available, extremely personable and her negotiation skills are excellent. She is the only agent we would ever use again in the area.

Alana DiMuzio

Carolyn is a highly talented woman who has beautiful taste and she is totally trustworthy! She staged our home in New Canaan and not only did our home look fantastic, using her furnishings along with mine, but she also knew exactly who would be in the market for our home and she was absolutely right on in every aspect of selling! I can tell you that she will do a great job, graciously, thoroughly, and in a timely fashion! (I would call on her again in a minute!:) Thanks so much for the opportunity to let you know what a dynamite Real Estate Professional she truly is!

I was a first time home buyer who took four years to finally pull the trigger. Carolyn stood with me the entire time educating me throughout the process. She is extremely knowledgeable and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a home in New Canaan.

Edward Merrill

In addition to possessing the skills necessary to achieve the goal, she is a delightful and gracious individual. She has it all. We could not have been happier with our experience with Carolyn and would highly recommend her to anyone buying or selling a home.
