Why Work With Us?
Here's what our satisfied customers are saying about us:
We couldn’t have been any luckier getting to work with Ellen to help us find our new home. As first-time home buyers there were a lot of things we hadn’t considered when we first started to look for a home. Ellen guided us to both narrow down the list to the things that mattered the most to us, such as proximity to town and move in ready condition, as well as very effectively helped us find the perfect home. Ellen was also very instrumental during the closing process, and repetitively went out of her way to help ensure that everything stayed on track. Ellen truly went above and beyond to guide us during the entire journey, and even went as far as finding us great local resources for any additional work that we planned to do in the house.
We all knew this summer how tight the housing market was because New Yorkers were escaping to Fairfield County. I also knew my budget and that homes were scarce at the beach. Vanderblue put a listing on Zillow at 6:30 am on a Saturday and I waited to call Ellen until 8:30. Ellen met with me right away, I fell in love with the skylights in this house and we had a bid in by 10:00 am. The bid was accepted and the rest is history. Ellen was with me every step of the way. The house was an estate sale and I worried about all the needs this house would have and whether the investment would be worth it. I had a home inspection, dozens of contractors to price out the work and feasibility, and Ellen organized every meeting at the house with each one. She has a wonderful rapport with other realtors in the area, she is seasoned in the business and negotiated diplomatically on my behalf to keep the mortgage application process rolling while organizing all the times we had to enter the property to get our estimates for future work. Ellen even had the sellers cart away 6 dumpsters of old belongings that had piled up over the years. Ellen has vast knowledge of all the resources I needed, from plumbing to sanitation to pool builders to landscaping. I was in good hands and felt supported every step of the way. It felt as though Ellen and I were purchasing this home together and she still checks in with me to make sure everything is going well. Which it is. A piece of paradise and a dream come true that will last my family for generations.
Thank you for everything !

Lori was professional, considerate, and took the time to listen to what we needed. We felt she was on our side every step of the way and that she always had our best interest at heart; she wasn't just in it to make a sale. She has also taken the time to follow up with us multiple times since we closed on our home.
I would highly recommend her to any of my friends looking to buy or sell a home!
The Rolfe Family
We met Lori by chance at an open house and the rest is history! From that day forward Lori was our agent. We were a young couple looking to move on from our 1,050 square foot cape into our forever home. Lori must have shown us at least 25 houses before we found the one. Lori was always patient with us and provided us with the guidance we needed in making the right decision for our family. She was always available by phone, text, email, etc and was quick to return messages. After helping us find our dream home, Lori sold our little cape. We had spent many years in that home and knowing Lori was the one to sell it helped keep our minds at ease as we moved onto a new chapter in our lives. While we were happy to be done with the whole buying and selling experience, we knew we would miss having Lori in our lives. We had been a team for 3+ years and she had practically become family. We placed our trust in Lori and she went above and beyond the call of duty at all times and we will be forever grateful for her hard work and dedication. Regardless of your situation, if you need an agent, Lori is the one!
"It was an absolute pleasure working with Lori! We experienced eight corporate moves over the last thirteen years and this was the first time we had to move on our own, in search of our forever home. Lori's professionalism, knowledge of the market and personality was a perfect fit for our family. She not only helped us find our forever home, but she also listed and sold our previous home. Lori worked with her team to execute a comprehensive marketing plan and listed our home at the end of February 2020; she sold it the same day for asking price. We had an exceptional experience working with her. Whether buying and/or selling a home, we highly recommend using Lori!"
"Lori was tireless in selling my property in a difficult market. She held numerous open houses and worked creatively with my ultimate buyers to sell their house, so that my contingent sale could go through. She is pleasant to work with, always upbeat, never pushy and, overall, she made what could have been a tiresome two years into a tolerable situation. I always felt she was on my side, not just pushing for a quick commission."
We highly recommend Lori for anyone looking for a great realtor! She was very easy to deal with and was always prompt in responding to any questions we had. She made the process much easier for us. Great personality and drive to sell our home without sacrificing the price. Very happy that we chose her. Phil & Dawn Waller
I highly recommend Anne! She did a terrific job finding a perfect family rental for us on very short notice in a difficult rental environment. She was highly responsive and even followed up to make sure we were happy. She is great at her job and goes the extra mile!

Anne was thoroughly professional throughout the entire renting process especially in a market skewed away from the renter. She was tireless in looking for new properties and really understood our requirements without any handholding at all. She was very knowledgeable and prompt in communication of the rental market as well as a lot of Connecticut neighborhoods. Really went above and beyond to make the transition as smooth for us as she could and really highlighting the charm of each town. She was a great asset to have throughout the signing process as well which can be very stressful if not handled properly.
I have worked with a number of other real estate agents in the past and have been consistently disappointed. I had the opposite experience with Anne and can recommend her without hesitation. We met Anne during an open house. She followed up a month or so later at which time we had a long discussion about the area and she sent me an email with great information and resources for the areas which interested us. I decided to work with her after that call based on our conversation. From the start she was professional, friendly, and helpful. She set up requested appointments quickly and was always on time. Anne was incredibly responsive and available to me. Our purchase was somewhat frustrating due to the pandemic and outside complicating factors that were outside of any of our control. Anne was wonderful at listening to my frustrations as well as helping to communicate with our sellers frequently. I am deeply appreciative to Anne as she made the experience the best that it could be especially considering the circumstances. I hope we don't move again any time soon, but would certainly use Anne again in a heartbeat if that were to happen.
