I have 20 years of experience, and specialize in the field of real estate with specific knowledge in the areas of residential sales, new construction sales and rentals. I have published on such topics as local area real estate. The highlight of my career was the sale of 150 acre parcel of land. The owner and his family did not want the property developed into a subdivision and wanted to preserve it for wildlife. After more than a year of marketing this property, I contacted the state of CT in response to their announcement regarding a mandate to maintain open space in the state. After a year of negotiating with the state, they purchased the property and it is now protected from development. I obtained a good price for my clients and met all of the criteria required by the state to go forward with the purchase.
