Beginning a career as a professional photographer in New York City, Tina has photographed celebrity chefs including Giada DeLaurentiis, Rachael Ray and Tyler Florence and for commercial clients such as Martha Stewart Living, Family Circle, This Old House and Bed, Bath & Beyond. What Tina brings to Real Estate is the experience and professionalism of working in a high pressure environment and seeing projects through to the end with ease.

 “In both careers, communication is key…Interpreting an art director’s vision can be related to interpreting a buyer’s vision when finding the perfect home...

Beginning a career as a professional photographer in New York City, Tina has photographed celebrity chefs including Giada DeLaurentiis, Rachael Ray and Tyler Florence and for commercial clients such as Martha Stewart Living, Family Circle, This Old House and Bed, Bath & Beyond. What Tina brings to Real Estate is the experience and professionalism of working in a high pressure environment and seeing projects through to the end with ease.

 “In both careers, communication is key…Interpreting an art director’s vision can be related to interpreting a buyer’s vision when finding the perfect home.  For sellers, staging, preparing and photographing a home to look it’s best is crucial in today’s market. Both careers also demand attention to detail and have many variables to make it all come together - a magazine story or closing a real estate deal.”

Introducing newcomers to Connecticut is fun for Tina, as she discovered first-hand what a wonderful place it is 12 years ago. Without traveling far one finds it all: beach, river, boating, farm to table, great restaurants, art museums, state parks with hiking trails and trains that easily connect you to New York City and Boston.

With her clients needs in mind Tina created two groups on Facebook: “Saybrook Friends” which shares and highlights local events to keep the community informed and “The Shoreline Home” where she shares real estate tips and ideas for home improvements, it is also a great platform to promote her listings.

Having earned bachelor degrees in German and Visual Arts at Rutgers University in New Jersey, her studies led her to live and study in both Constance and Berlin, Germany and to travel widely which is helpful with her international clients.

A supporter of the arts and culture, she and her family are members of the Florence Griswold Museum, Connecticut River Museum and the Yale Peabody Museum. Tina is active in the Old Saybrook school system and a promoter of local businesses and shops. She has volunteered for Habitat for Humanity, where she learned and practiced the art of hanging drywall.

Proven success is that in her first year as an agent, Tina received the “Rookie of the Year Award” from William Pitt Sotheby’s for selling the most units for a new agent "company wide.” She has also earned both Silver and Bronze Awards for sales volume.

Tina was amazing! She patiently showed us so many homes until we were ready to buy, and she smoothly negotiated our purchase with a very tight timeline. She knows the shoreline so well, and she had an excellent sense of what we were looking for. I highly recommend her!

We were looking for a house on the Connecticut Shoreline and had the pleasure of meeting Tina Rupp at an open house in Old Saybrook. Tina was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the area. Tina was easy to work with and understood what we were looking for in a home and community. We toured several homes before making a decision. She made the process of buying a home very easy. We highly recommend Tina Rupp to anyone purchasing or selling a home.

Carrie and Tom Clausi - Old Saybrook CT

Tina is a great realtor! If she didn't know the answer, she was quick to find it for us!! Super responsive and available. Tina spent many weekends and weeknights with us for showings until we found our home in Sept. 2015 in Essex! Highly recommend!!

Essex, CT

Tina is an outstanding Real Estate Agent. She's attentive and patient, listening to my needs and wishes while respecting my budget. I've purchased houses through other agents and Tina has the professional integrity that I respect in a trusted Realtor. Tina also has incredible vision and her experience with home remodeling was evident in her great ideas and suggestions that were both reasonable, clever and had my aesthetic in mind. Tina's kindness and professional manner is warm and sincere and reflected in her rapport with everyone we worked with throughout the process. She is well connected and has a variety of skillful people in the industry to call for every home need imaginable. As a single full time working mother of two, I had some pretty steep demands and Tina was forthright with an abundance of possibilities contributing to an exciting and rewarding home buying experience. I would highly recommend Tina Rupp to anyone looking to buy a home. She's the best!

Ivoryton, CT

Tina was very helpful in our search for a home on the shoreline. She was very knowledgeable about the area and was very patient as she showed us many homes in different areas helping us finally decide exactly where we wanted to be and which style of home would meet our needs. Tina helped us find a home we love, when we weren't even sure what we were looking for! Tina is very easy to work with and we recommend her very highly.

Old Saybrook, CT

My husband and I have been working with Tina for about the past 6 months. We were undecided about purchasing the first home we liked. Tina was always open, honest and fair, with no pressure. She would investigate any issues or concerns unfamiliar to her and inform us promptly. We eventually did purchase a different property and Tina navigated that with us as well. Since then Tina has assisted us in renting out an apartment we own. This literally took 1 week to complete. She was right on it! We will be using Tina for an upcoming property sale and any future needs we have. We highly recommend Tina Rupp for your reality needs.

Guilford, CT

Tina was a pleasure to work with. She had some creative ideas for staging . Her photography skills also added appeal to the house. I always heard from her within 48 hours after a showing letting me know how it went. She is confident and assertive and I always felt that she had my best interest at heart. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a realtor.

J.S. - Clinton, CT

The reason I chose Tina Rupp as a realtor for a relocation from Colorado to Connecticut was her involvement in the community, especially with schools. I definitely made the right choice as she helped me navigate the neighborhoods, schools, and shopping areas that informed my home purchasing   decision. I initially had one day of travel to look for houses with the expectation that I would need to make future trips. With her well thought out house selections and planning, we were able to see 8 houses and I found the perfect house for my family on that day. Finding a great house is only half of the process. The purchasing was made so efficient with the crack team of Tina, the property lawyer, and the mortgage broker, that she helped me to assemble. Tina then went beyond the expectations of a realtor and was extremely helpful with setting up utilities, recommending local services, and even restaurant reviews. Above all, Tina has been kind, responsive, helpful, and trustworthy.

Westbrook

Tina was a pleasure to have as our real estate agent. She assisted us in finding the perfect investment home to renovate for rental purposes. She was very prompt in scheduling showings and never left any questions unanswered. I would highly recommend her if you want to receive the best service   any agent can provide.

Niantic

Tina did an outstanding job for us! She understood exactly the type of home we were looking for and found it! When our offer became multiple offers and a bit of a bidding war ensued, Tina wrote a very heartfelt letter to the sellers on our behalf and we now have the home of our dreams. A big plus   for us is that we now consider Tina a good friend!

Gayle Murphy Westbrook

Upon our first meeting, Tina was both professional and personable. She listened to our needs and provided advice when requested. We believe her past experience as a photographer accounts her keen eye for details that are important for both buyers and sellers. Most importantly, she followed up  quickly on every step of the process and worked above and beyond our expectations. She made our life easy and we are grateful. My husband and I highly recommend her.

Christopher Christian

Working with Tina was fantastic. We met her at an open house in Old Saybrook and decided to work with her because she, much like us, is a young professional. She had a great knowledge of the Connecticut coastal towns and she was very helpful in sending us houses she thought would match our  interests. She is also a superb communicator. We live on our phones and email and Tina always responded to our queries promptly. She was also great when she took us to showings and she would point out any flaws she knew would bother us. I 100% would work with Tina again and I highly recommend her to all future buyers.
