Rita is a professional of the highest order. John Vetterli
Rita is outstanding. She is the consummate professional and has clearly mastered her craft. We had the privilege of working with Rita to both buy and sell our home, and she made both processes enjoyable and painless. We are so grateful that we had the opportunity to meet Rita and to see her in action. It is clear that she loves what she does! Steven Petrie
Couldn't be happier with my home buying experience! This is the second time in a row. I just sold my home in ATL with Sotheby's and your team was even better in helping me secure my dream home in CT! A huge thank you to Rita Kirby. What a gem!!! Samy Ben Aissa
This is the second time we have worked with Rita in 2 years. I have worked with a number of agents over the course of the past decade in CT, NY and SC and Rita is by far the best agent I am had the pleasure to partner with. She is honest, detail oriented and diligent. I always felt like she had my best interests in mind during the entire process. She understood my family and my needs. I have recommended her to friends and will continue to do so. Daniel & Ashley Gagnier
Rita is a pro and a wonderful person. She was a pleasure to work with. Paul and Brooke Jones
