About Me About Me

The most important part of any real estate transaction is you. Whether buying or selling, it is your house. Your goals. Your desires. Your needs. I don't forget that. 

Buying or selling a house is an exciting time. It also is a time filled with numerous questions and myriad details. And let's not forget the inevitable emotional highs and lows. So, in addition to offering incredible analytical insights into the local market, I am here to ensure your transaction moves smoothly, beginning the day we meet and continuing through closing and beyond. I am here to share your joy, empathize with your frustration and lessen your confusion.  I am here to sweat the small stuff while keeping my eye on the big picture. It is my goal to do this with integrity, compassion and a smile.

How does this happen? It starts with listening, sharing my knowledge and then leaving no stone unturned in the quest to find you the most qualified buyer or the best home for your future. One, two, three, the process starts. Home tour. Town tour. Recent sales. Comparable sales. Outreach to other agents. Digital marketing. Digital home searches. And, always, constant communication. Technology is my friend but there is no substitute for hands-on involvement and in-depth local knowledge.

I began calling Ridgefield home more than 34 years ago and have loved watching the town grow and improve. I raised my two daughters here and saw them thrive with the education they received in the public school system. I have developed life-long friends and often marvel at the way the town continues to offer new opportunities for every step of my life. Joyfully for me, one daughter and her family have moved back to the area so I now am seeing how wonderful it is to be a grandparent here.

Real estate is a fourth career for me and a logical culmination of skills nurtured as a newspaper reporter, corporate communications consultant, community volunteer and mother.  There are few problems that can't be solved. It just takes reasonable people acting reasonably.

You deserve nothing but the best from me. I will give you nothing but my best.

Our agent, Kristi Vaughan, stuck with us through what turned into a year-long process, to find us the perfect house! Bruce Rosen
We had the pleasure of working with Kristi during the challenging journey of purchasing our dream home. From the outset, Kristi's unwavering dedication and sincere commitment to our needs shone through, setting her apart from the typical real estate agent. Throughout the years, her diligence and perseverance stood as a pillar of support for my husband and me, making what seemed like an insurmountable task possible. While many others might have thrown in the towel, Kristi remained resolute, consistently going the extra mile to ensure our aspirations were met. Her unparalleled determination and unwavering optimism breathed life into our vision and kept us motivated, even during the most trying times. It's rare to encounter an individual so dedicated to their client's goals, and Kristi's persistence truly made all the difference. Beyond her professional attributes, Kristi's unique personality and genuine care for her clients created a bond that extended beyond mere business interactions. What started as a professional relationship evolved into a friendship, and we now look forward to chance encounters during our leisurely strolls in town. Kristi's amiable nature and warm demeanor have left an indelible mark on our lives, and we are immensely grateful for her invaluable assistance throughout this intricate process. In conclusion, Kristi's exceptional support and unyielding dedication have not only helped us secure our cherished home but have also left us with a lasting friendship. I would highly recommend Kristi to anyone in search of a reliable and dedicated real estate professional who is not only committed to achieving results but also genuinely cares for her client's well-being. Her unique blend of professionalism and personal touch sets her apart, making her an asset in any real estate endeavor. Maria Stahley

Kristi Vaughan was absolute pleasure to work with. She provided outstanding service. She was always very professional, very knowledgeable, works tirelessly and provided best advise. Shashank Kulkarni
We were fortunate enough to work with Kristi Vaughaun during the purchase, and subsequent sale of our home 4 yrs later. Originally recommended by a local friend, Kristi’s knowledge of Ridgefield guided us as we were new to CT. Her professional process helped us feel very confident in our decisions. She was one step ahead while going against multiple bidders. Her patience and kind demeanor help us actually enjoy the process! For anyone looking for a true expert in the Ridgefield market, we strongly suggest working with Kristi Vaughaun. Conor Rubin
Kristi is very professional and knowledgeable. She has made the process of selling our house stress free because we knew that she would be able to take care of any issues that might come up. We highly recommend her. Vanessa Spear
We have been planning a move to Connecticut for several years now, and never managed to find the right house. After taking a break, we found Kristi and our search was inspired with new vigor. She found us an amazing property that we immediately fell in love with which was not even listed on the market. But more than just someone to find and tour properties, the most important thing Kristi helped us through was the roller coaster of negotiations. She navigated a tumultuous series of requests from the sellers and negotiated terms that worked for both of us. I would highly recommend Kristi for anyone looking in the area! Mark Phillips
Working with Kristi and Pitt Sotheby's was a smooth, easy process, in what could otherwise have been a stressful venture, given selling a home is not the easiest thing to do. Kristi laid out the plan, helped us understand the rationale for the list price, and kept in constant communication with us throughout the process. Ryan Dulaney
Kristi Vaughn and Tom Skillman are a phenomenal team. Through multiple setbacks and months of searching, the perfect house was selected. All aspects of the transaction were clear and the process was seamless. Thank you for all of your efforts and I look forward to working with you both in the future! Thank you, Kyle Kyle Knox
It’s so lucky to work with Kristi buying a house. She is very knowledgeable on the properties in our target area. I am grateful to have her as our agent. She is proactive and have us prepared for any possibilities. She understands our needs better than m ourselves. Without her help, we couldn’t close our home within such short time. We started house shopping from July and closed our house in October. I will definitely recommend her if anyone needs an agent buying/selling a house. Na Yao
Kristi, was great. A work relocation is extremely complex and has a ton of paperwork in addition to the normal stress of selling and moving cross country. Kristi managed us and the relocation company beautifully. Jared Harper
Working with Kristi was a pleasure. She was very knowledgeable and always steered us in the right direction. I will recommend her to anyone who asks. Kelli Bulan
Great support and help by your agent . Alex Rochefort
Kristi was so easy to work with. We sold our house that we have been in for 29 years. It has been a long time since we went through this process. Last summer she met with us and helped us prepare for the eventual sale this spring. When we were ready to put the house on the market, everything went very smoothly. We would definitely recommend Kristi! Kathryn Maher
Kristi Vaughan is an amazing realtor! She was readily available to help us with every step in the selling process. David Maher
Kristi was great to work with. She was patient, calming, helpful and trustworthy as we navigated a crazy buyers’ market. Megan Power
Kristi was wonderful to work with. She has been a family friend for as long as I can remember and really made the entire process easy. From initially reaching out, Kristi was always extremely responsive and knowledgeable. As a first-time home buyer, she also showed a lot of patience and recommended great people to work with from the mortgage lender, attorney, inspectors, and other recommendations of specialty contractors. We feel so lucky to have someone like Kristi to work with who was able to get us our first home and keep us level-headed to negotiate a fair value in an inflated market. Laura Elizabeth Fleming
Experienced, savvy and a pleasure to work with, Kristi was just the guidance we needed! Daniel Harnden
Kristi Vaughan did a great job. Very informative and made sure we were making the right decision. With this real estate market Kristi really helped us keep a positive mind set and being new to the area, she was able to educate us on the things to look out for with homes in Connecticut. Thanks for all your help Kristi! Ryan Newhouse
Kristi is one of the most professional, experienced and capable real estate agents we have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. She has handled all of our real estate dealings over the last 15 years and has been excellent on every occasion. I would highly recommend Kristi for both buying and selling. Kristi has become not only the only real estate agent we would work with in Ridgefield but a trusted friend. Duncan Potter
Excellent service provided by Kristi Vaughn. Barbara Grinder
Kristi made our condo purchase painless, working long-distance with us in Florida and responding quickly to each of our questions and concerns. It was great to finally meet her for the condo walkthrough, where she gave us lots of good advice about being seasonal residents. We consider ourselves fortunate to have had Kristi as our agent! Kim Grinder
We had an excellent experience with our agent Kristi Vaughan. She used her considerable experience and leveraged her relationships in the community to really advocate for us and made sure that we were well taken care of. As first time homebuyers, we were definitely anxious to avoid some of the horror stories that we'd heard from our friends when they bought their first homes, and Kristi made sure that the process went as smoothly as possible. We had been in the market for a new home for years, but with Kristi everything seemed to fall into place. So happy to have met her! Yana Thompson
Kristi was amazing to work with! She was extremely responsive at all times and helped us get a great deal on our absolute dream house in a crazy covid real estate market. She was very helpful navigating the whole process and was able to provide great recommendations for everything we needed (mortgage banker, lawyer, home inspector etc) and she is super knowledgeable herself - we trust her and her judgement 100%. Beyond that, she is just a very pleasant and down to earth person. Would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a house. Thank you Kristi Cosima Zoller
The company's home finder site is easy to navigate and helpful to perform searches in different geographical areas. Our buyer's agent sent us listings that fit our needs as they came available and gave us a heads up for listings that were coming soon. In this wild market, that is a necessity. Carol Bruno-Amico
Kristi was absolutely incredible! Despite a couple of setbacks and shifts in our interests in a CT home, she kept us well informed, continuously counseled us on the various options, and represented us with fervor and commitment when we finally settled on the home we wanted. Her professionalism and responsiveness is first class, while having a wonderful casual and personable approach that reduced the stress that comes with the journey of home buying, and moving! Frank Duemmler
Sotheby's and our wonderful agent Kristi went above and beyond to help us find the perfect home. Her knowledge about the different parts of town, neighbourhoods and the surrounding area was exceptional! We trusted her completely and felt she was always honest and forthcoming with any information she had. Her negotiating skills and advice were always in our favour and we would not hesitate to use her again. We feel most agents might have given up on us, but Kristi never did and never made us feel not valued. We can't say enough how wonderful the whole experience was from start to finish. Sarah Rosen
Our positive experience with selling our home through William Pitt/Sotheby’s would not have been possible without our realtor Kristi Vaughan. Kristi did an amazing job handling every aspect of our home sale, guiding us each step of the way, with her professionalism, knowledge, and collaborative approach to everything , all with a much appreciated sense of humor. Her knowledge of our town allowed her to assist us in presale work on the house with contractors, & service people who were responsive at a reasonable cost. Helping us through listing, and showings, and negotiations, all during a pandemic and an unprecedented real estate market always calm, confident, and reassuring, and beyond expectations. We could not recommend her more highly to anyone looking for a great realtor. Thanks Kristi! Pat & Carey Q Patricia Quigley

Kristi was an exceptional realtor. She guided us through the whole process. Greg Friedrich
Kristi exceeded our expectations throughout our arduous relocation from NYC to Ridgefield during the Covid-19 pandemic. Not only is her market knowledge and negotiation savvy second to none, but she made us feel like her only clients. She was honest, professional, accessible, and injected her sense of humor at just the right moments. We consider ourselves lucky to have had Kristi as our real estate advisor in Ridgefield! Angela Daley
I would highly recommend Kristi Vaughn to friends and colleagues Kristi was kind, intelligent, receptive to our needs and went above and beyond to help us in any way she possibly could. I couldnt have asked for a better realtor to broker our deal. Kristi Vaughn is an excellent realtor and now friend. The Flynns /Thompsons Anne Thompson
We are so so happy to be in our dream home, and we absolutely could not have done it without the help of Kristi Vaughan! She is truly a remarkable real estate agent and a genuine person at heart. She guided us through this long (and often confusing process) with great finesse and ease, and she constantly made sure we were happy throughout. We recommend Kristi and the William Pitt team 100%, and we are forever grateful! Cathryn & Devin OKeeffe
Kristi is an excellent agent--organized, thorough, knowledgeable and to top it off, a great communicator. As someone who needed the management of the sale handled from another state, she always checked on our property prior to a showing and even offered to wait on-site to allow access for a contractor who needed to do minor work. We highly recommend her services. As an adder, when she was not available, others from the office came forward to step in and cover. This demonstrates the teamwork at the Ridgefield, CT location. Sally Savoia
Kristi took the time to understand what I was looking for then adapted quickly to homes that met our needs I was looking for a new home because I had relocated for my job. Kristi had experience in working with relocates and was able to work hand in hand with my attorney to close quickly and smoothly. I would recommend Kristi to anyone who is looking for a new home. Carol
It was a pleasure working with Kristi Vaughan. She answered our questions immediately and knew the areas she took us to, letting us know helpful information about what was nearby. We ended up with our dream retirement home, at a few thousand less than what we thought was the final bid! We were both very happy with Kristi's expert service, and would recommend her highly!! Karen & Marty
Kristi was so patient and helpful in our relocation to CT from Atlanta. We looked at lost of houses, had tons of questions, and she responded to each one thoroughly and quickly. When negotiations got sticky, she helped push things along and we are very happy with our purchase. Michelle & Jaraslov
Kristi is a consummate professional and also a lot of fun to work with. She worked with us on a grueling 10 month short sale process and never lost her cool or her patience. She fully knew how to navigate the process, educated us along the way and helped us negotiate the deal. She is an experienced realtor who continues to display enthusiasm and passion for her profession. ToniAnn & David
We could not have been more satisfied with Kristi. She handled the sale of our previous home and purchase of our current one. It was clear from the beginning that Kristi has an excellent understanding of the local market, she was available on a moment's notice, and was an absolute pleasure to work. Jeremy & Beth
