We Believe in Community

This is actually a rewrite from our original article. The first draft talked about how much we believe in our community…that I have lived in and loved this town for 30 years and that together we were able to create the Number 1 Team in CT in volume and Number 1 in Fairfield County for transactions (yes, these are actual statistic from MLS for all of 2021). I felt honored to share all that we do for the people we serve and how proud I am of each teammate for the passion and commitment they put into bringing more value to our clients.
But then it dawned on me that this is not what differentiates us. What make us unique as a Real Estate team is YOU. We recognize and embrace that is not about us, it is all about you. Everything we do, every dollar we spend, every strategy we employ, every division we create is to bring YOU, the client and our community, more value, more confidence, more comfort, more joy. We have an insatiable appetite to improve your experience, to increase the value of YOUR home, to find YOU that hidden gem at the best price, to network with ONLY the best to make certain your real estate journey is actually enjoyable rather than stressful.
The reason I got into Real Estate was I believed it was a broken system. Self serving and all about the money, not the people. My quest 25 years ago was to change that. My goal was to work beside a synergistic team who shared my belief that people deserved more and to combine our skill sets to exceed the expectations of our clients.
We recognize that we need to align with the finest industry leaders to improve our clients’ experience. We introduce just a few of the primary partners of our extended team to make your real estate ride the best that it can be.
DAVID GARAFALO, Branch Manager at GUARANTEED RATE has over 18 years of experience advising consumers on mortgage products. His team is known in the industry for consistently being one of CT’s Top Producers with over One Billion Dollars in funded Loans. Guaranteed Rate offers all the right tools, advice, and financing to make buying your dream home a reality.
BILL TWEEDY, Principal Partner at HIGHLINE RISK SOLUTIONS, where he uses his 20+ years of industry experience to help clients strike the perfect balance between cost and critically important coverages when it comes to their home & automobile insurance portfolios. Bill lives with his family in Fairfield and he serves all of Fairfield County.
ATTORNEY JONATHAN WETMORE combines his years of experience and deep knowledge of real estate transactions with the personal attention, care and compassion that buyers and sellers deserve. Jonathan has lived in Fairfield County his entire life and takes great pride in being an active member of the community.
SCHAEFER INSPECTION SERVICE, founded in 1981, is family-owned and operated by Bruce and Jill Schaefer. They are committed to providing property inspections, including radon and mold, that offers attentive, well-trained inspectors and professional information to real estate buyers and sellers.
NOAH’S ARK MOVING AND STORAGE launched operations in 1982. Friendly highly skilled movers and their ability to seamlessly perform any residential or commercial move has earned them a stellar reputation. Fully licensed and insured, they boast a phenomenal record of less than 1/20th of 1% damage ratio.
There is so much to share and so little space. We invite you to learn about how we can bring you value and possibly even join us in our quest to help improve the lives of others. Just remember, YOU are our WHY.
With warmest wishes,
Julie Vanderblue
