Sandy was so patient and understanding. It was very hard leaving our family home that we had lived in for thirty years. She really help us through a very tough time. Her knowledge and explaining things made it easier for all of us. She was always there to answer any questions! She is a gemJeffrey and Sue Little
Sandy is simply AMAZING! Sandy provided exceptional and professional service from start to finish. She was always accessible to answer my questions with her expertise, and she remained positive and encouraging despite coming across various seller-related obstacles/delays throughout the home buying process. By the time my closing day rolled around, Sandy felt more like family than my real estate agent. I can't even begin to thank Sandy enough for always going above and beyond to help me find my dream first home!Ryan Marynowski
Great process Sandy was extremly helpful on all aspects of the transaciton.Jennifer Mayer
Sandy was excellent all throughout the process of purchasing my first home. She guided me well, was very supportive and accommodating and was overall a pleasure to work with.Brian Gates
We feel so lucky that Sandy was our agent for selling our house and for buying the co-op we now call our home. The only reason that we sold our house in only five days at a price higher than the price we first wanted, was that we trusted Sandy, and that we followed her advice. We truly believe that if we had not listened to Sandy about timing and pricing, that our house would have taken many weeks, and maybe even months, to sell, and at a lower price. We had a similar experience when Sandy helped us to buy the co-op where we live now. We were under pressure to find a particular size in a particular location, and when the ideal unit came on the market, we knew we had to grab it. Sandy knew exactly how to guide us so that we could snag the place quickly, and now we are very happily situated in our new home. Sandy is a real estate agent with a heart, and we know, in both our selling and our buying experience with her, that our interests were always Sandy's number one priority -- she always has had our best interests at heart. She knows the business, but even more importantly, she knows people, and it is truly lovely to work with her. If anyone were to ask our advice, we would say, "Listen to Sandy!"Michael and Vivian Ward
I cannot say enough good things about working with Sandy. To say that Sandy is extremely talented would be an understatement. Sandy guided us through every step of the process from selling our home to buying our dream home. Throughout the process, Sandy shared her expertise and knowledge. She calmed our nerves and patiently walked us through the process which was overwhelming to us at times. Sandy was so generous with her time and always answered our questions. Sandy is an amazing person. She is kind, generous and an gifted realtor. Thank you Sandy for everything!!Miriam Ward

Your organization is always professional and knowledgeable of the marketplace. Main reason for continuing to recommend Sotheby's is your Broker Sandy Chittenden in the Rye Office.

Together, she and my development company, construction company and real estate holding company, have traded in excess of 30 million dollars of purchases, sales and rentals with consistency and positivity.

As an out-of-state seller, we rested easy knowing Sandy was at the helm. Honestly, we could not have done this without her and are so grateful for her guidance, expertise and professionalism!Mary Jane Ryan-Stamler Living Trust
Sandy was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was professional, knowledgeable, and sincere in her guidance of selling our house and searching for a new home. Our house sold faster than I could have imagined and I believe it was due to her marketing & pricing. While our new home search was during the challenging Covid times, she never gave up and went above and beyond to find our family’s forever home. We are truly grateful for Sandy’s work and partnership.Deena and Todd Winchenbach
Sandy Chittenden from Julia B Fee/Sotheby's International Realty has served as my agent for my rental property in Rye twice now, and I can't imagine using anyone else. I no longer live near that property, so reliable, complete, and timely communication is especially crucial. Sandy is consistently responsive, quickly replying to any call, text, or email with a plan for moving forward. I alerted her that I'd need to list the house again, and she brought two service providers there that same day to get estimates for the needed repairs. She has established relationships with good painters, cleaners, plumbers, etc. Not only is she happy to make those referrals but she also lets them in, shows them what needs doing, and has even offered to negotiate price with them on my behalf. Then she makes frequent trips to the house to check on their progress and take pictures for me. Sandy has handled or advised me on every aspect of preparation, marketing, negotiation, and lease details. And she has even helped me handle sensitive issues around tenant turnover. She is positive and reassuring, and her advice has been spot-on. She knows the Rye (and surrounding area) real estate scene inside out. She understands and does a good job explaining the variables affecting pricing, timing, listing, and showing -- both for sales and for rentals. Her recent advice to me about expanding the scope of my prep work paid off. Within 2 hours of listing, new tenants were found -- because she knew just how to price the house and how best to showcase it. Especially important is that she understands the demographic of who's looking to rent and what's important to them. A pandemic adds layers of complexity to everything, including real estate. I usually travel to the property to inspect it and oversee repairs and upgrades myself. I told her I was hesitant to travel with restrictions still in place. Without skipping a beat, Sandy said, "I will be your eyes." She has been so generous with her time and efforts, and I'm hardly her only client. Compared to the luxury sales she also handles, my modest rental is small potatoes, yet she still treats me like I'm her top priority. Even more important is that she gets results, but her full-service support is unparalleled.Laura; Robert Kranis; Lafon
Sandy was exceptional. She was attentive, knowledgable and dedicated. We could not have done it without her. She treated the sale of our home as if she were selling her own. I can't say enough about her professionalism and her extremely valuable advice.John and Francesca Bellizzi
Sandy Chittenden is as professional as they come. Honest, prompt, thorough, smart, kind, and knows the market at every turn. I recommend Sandy to any buyer/seller looking for an agent who's integrity is without compromise. My business relationship for the past 10 +/- years with Sotheby's and Sandy's representation for ALL of those years, has been nothing short of stellar.Roger Paganelli
Sandy Chittenden has represented me as both buyer and seller for more than 15 years. Together we have traded over 20 million dollars in real estate. Sandy is honest, hard working, knowledgable of her market and ALWAYS does the absolute best that she can for her client. If you know someone moving to or from Rye, don't hesitate, recommend Sandy and they won't be disappointed.Roger
Sandy is a great Real Estate agent, but most of all she is a good person with a lot of passion for what she does. We met Sandy at an open house and fell in love with her way of presenting the property and her suggestions, so we decided to engage her as our agent. At the time we met Sandy we had been living in Rye for almost ten years and were looking for a bigger home in town. We always appreciated her honesty: many times she would recommend not to see a given property if she knew there were problems, which was important to us given the little spare time we had. In the end, Sandy drove us around the city for almost a year before we decided to put an offer on a house. She provided us with insightful and accurate information about the neighborhood and the market that were essential to win the bidding war.Thanks to her superb negotiation skills we got a great price.Rosanna and Alberto
