As a well-connected and local resident of Fairfield County for the past 20 years, Tom is well versed in the sales history of the area and what buyers are looking for in today’s market. “Tom is a great addition to the team because he is so educated about our marketplace and what the area has to offer. One of the most valuable things we bring to a client’s experience is the market knowledge they can’t read on Zillow or Realtor.com. The value of a home is so much more than the black and white of bedrooms, baths, and square footage. Tom knows first-hand how to transform a property into a statement one and has the critical eye when reviewing properties to help guide clients in this critical step and the process after the sale as well,” says principal Sara Littlefield.
