Why Work With Us?
Here's what our satisfied customers are saying about us:
Kelsey helped us find our home in Fairfield this past Summer and we loved working with her! The market was very busy and she had many clients yet we felt like the only people she was working with. There wasn't a single time where we felt pressure because this wasn't just a sale and commission to her, it was about genuinely helping us find the right home. She was kind, knowledgable, and incredibly responsive each step of the way. 100% recommend working with her and the Vanderblue team! Thank you again Kelsey and Julie!
The process of purchasing and selling a home can be overwhelming, unless you're agent is Julie. She is seasoned, knowledgeable, resourceful & most importantly honest. She's immensely patient but is no push over when representing you. Julie and her team provide stellar results and are worker bees. She has represented me in both purchasing and selling. Thanks to her diligence and hard work, every transaction has been zen and rewarding. Julie is hands down the best realtor in CT.
Every summer I rent a house on Fairfield Beach for a month. It becomes harder to find one each year as the beach houses are replaced by large owner occupied homes. Brianna Dangelo responded to an inquiry I made about a listed rental. I had been looking for weeks and she asked me what I was looking for and said she'd get back to me soon. She contacted the owner of house I really love and negotiated a rent I can afford in 2 days time. I'm thrilled. Handling a one month rental is something most of the agents I've contacted over the years haven't wanted to get involved with. Some years it has taken months to find what I'm looking for. I'm so happy I got the house I want in 2 days, no more looking! THANK YOU BARIANNA!
The Vanderblue team came in after my home had been on the market for almost a year. They developed a marketing plan and implemented it. Within 1 month my home was sold and closed. Thank you!
I had an AMAZING experience working with Julie and The Vanderblue Team. They were responsive and professional from the very start. Julie is down to earth and really listens to what you need. Her calm and professional personality was so helpful during a life changing event! She got me the best offer on my property and was able to get my offer accepted quickly on the home I wanted. This team will make things happen! I highly recommend using Julie and the Vanderblue Team!
We moved! Kelsey and Julie helped us buy and sell - and we did it within 7 weeks— in probably the most busy market ever. We couldn’t have done it without Kelsey and Julie.
Everyone tells you that the experience is such an emotional roller coaster. Without Kelsey and Julie, there are many moments when the process would have seemed too daunting to proceed. Kelsey and Julie normalized the whole experience and provided the confidence and perseverance that was needed to get the job done. We were able to easily
package the transfer of our solar panels, which many external agents said would be quite tricky if not impossible to do. From the initial walk through of our own house to closing day on the new house, Kelsey and Julie were there with us- always only a text and a smile away.
Thank you, Vanderblue!
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!
