Let me start by saying after working with Kristen for 5 months and having bought a house from her, I view her as a friend. She is easy to work with and very knowledgeable about Fairfield County. She understood our needs and was the first one to say this house is not for you if we looked at one that didn't fit our needs. She was patient and was not pushy with trying to sell us just any house. She even sent out mailers to the area we were looking at to try to see if anyone was interested in selling their house. We previously worked with another agent before Kristen for over 1 year and he had none of the qualities that Kristen had. He was unethical and wasted a lot of our time. So when we met Kristen through a referral it was like night and day. Kristen is easygoing, smart, and understands the market. We found the perfect REALTOR and our dream home on the Lake! Use Kristen for all your real estate needs, she gets the job done!
Carrie Sakey was absolutely amazing to work with! She is incredibly knowledgeable about the local market and helped us find not only many great homes on the market - but several times got us in to see houses that were not yet listed. She knows every corner of the town, which areas have kids, families, traffic, block parties, etc. Carrie is always responsive answering every question helpfully and quickly. Perhaps, best of all, Carrie never pressured us. We were really torn between making offers on a couple of houses, and she not only squeezed in second and third showings for us (once even watching our kids outside so we could have a private moment to talk) but never once pushed us to make a decision. She really understood what we wanted and genuinely seemed to enjoy getting us to a great home for our family. In a nutshell, Carrie is wonderful and I couldn't recommend her more strongly!
As a first-time home buyer, Cristin was incredibly patient and resourceful throughout the entire process. She really spent time getting to know us and what we were looking for in our home. We also shared with her that we only had a few months to find a home and really needed to act fast. Immediately she had appointments set up for us and was open to the other guests that joined us for the appointments to guide us through the process. After we found the house she helped us through a few weeks of negotiation even throughout the holidays! She made wonderful recommendations (contractors, inspectors, lawyers- everything!) throughout and helped really streamline the process and explain things to us along the way. Cristin was an absolute pleasure to work with and I'd recommend her to anyone, especially first-time buyers!
As a former REALTOR, I admit to setting a very high bar when it comes to professional standards. Trustworthiness, attention to detail, timely and accurate communication, and putting the needs of the client at the forefront of every interaction are the traits that set Kristen apart from so many others. She worked diligently and patiently to help me find a spacious well-priced condo in the perfect location in the Black Rock neighborhood. Both personally and professionally I recommend Kristen.
Catherine is exceptional! We were moving from Brooklyn to Redding area without knowing anyone local. She guided us through the search with absolute care and it felt like she was as invested as we were in the process. We had a complicated close and she guided us through with professionalism and care. She’s the REALTOR that you hope to land with and we felt bittersweet when the process was done. While we hope to not move again - we’d use her in a heartbeat again!
We had a wonderful experience working with Carrie! Her guidance and expertise really helped us through the process as first-time home buyers. We were able to find and close a house quickly and easily even in an incredibly competitive market thanks to her knowledge and negotiation skills. Throughout our house hunt, Carrie was very responsive, honest, down to earth, and a true pleasure to work with!
