"Nearly There... Far to Go"

Fine Art Portrait Photo Exhibit Celebrates Life with a Focus on Need

I am proud to support Near & Far Aid by sponsoring "Nearly There... Far to Go" - a photo exhibit by well-known photographer Pamela Einarsen. The portraits were displayed in February at Southport Galleries and have been moved to Mitchell's of Westport for Friday's Spring Gala to benefit Near & Far Aid - distributing funding to approximately 100 charity organizations in Fairfield County.

sought-after locations in the United States?

An outstanding coastal location just an hour from Manhattan, several blue-ribbon school districts, an array of shopping venues, an ecclectic mix of architectural styles, abundant leisure and cultural activities, and much more... it is no wonder this is one of the most desirable places to live!

7 Black Birch Road, Westport -- Open House this Sunday, November 1, 2009

This Sunday I will be holding an open house from 1:00 to 3:00 pm at my listing on Black Birch in Westport. What appears to be a classic Colonial holds many surprises...

Only two owners have called this property home, and it was originally built by a prominent developer who created many of the neighborhoods that now comprise the Long Lots and Coleytown sections of Westport. That is why so many extra amenities are present... Oversized living and dining rooms with vaulted ceilings, an open kitchen/family room that mirrors the flow of today's new construction, a main floor study and guest/au-pair suite, plus the spacious master bedroom wing which includes one of four fireplaces, a sitting room, two walk-in closets, and large bath. The walk-out lower level, expansive stone patio with spa, screened-in porch, and level acre on a quiet lane complete the package. $1,299,000

Directions: Roseville Road to Black Birch, diagonal Deerwood

Can't make it to the open house? Take a photo tour at or call me for a private showing.

"Listingbook" - A powerful tool for savvy buyers and sellers

We recently launched a partnership with "Listingbook" - a powerful tool that has already become indespensible to my clients - whether they are buying or selling Fairfield County Real Estate. The service allows you to access the Multiple Listing Service, just like a Realtor.

When you join Listingbook, a "Morning Report" will be delivered to your email inbox on a daily basis.

  • Home buyers will see all new listings that meet their criteria. When something catches your eye, mark it as a favorite property - you will be kept apprised of price changes and all other pertinent info. Additionally, you will be kept informed of changes in status; find out automatically when listings get an accepted offer, go under contract, and when they sell - you will have access to the final sales price.
  • Home sellers will get updated information on competing properties also listed for sale. New inventory, price and status changes, etc, are all at your fingertips.
  • Market statistics and more are only a click away.

For a complete summary of all Listingbook services, visit: and click the Buying or Selling tabs at the top of the page. You can also sign up for your free account on this page... or contact me for assistance and I will connect you to this dynamic new resource.

As always, I am looking forward to helping you decipher the intricacies of the market - whether buying or selling.
