We (myself, wife, 3 kids) moved to Westport from Southern California this past summer, and Hope was our realtor in our home search. But she was so much more than that. We knew next to nothing about Connecticut, and she was our guide and advisor for all things–real estate and the neighborhoods, where to shop, places to eat, things to do, schools for the kids, and everything else. She even helped us locate temporary housing while we were still learning the towns and figuring out where and what we wanted in a home. She was proactive and constantly in communication, both during our home search, as well as when we were in escrow, communicating with us and the sellers to make the purchase process as smooth as possible. She was instrumental in helping us understand our position in the market, balancing what we wanted in a new home with what we could afford. In the end, she was able to find exactly what we wanted, and we couldn’t be happier in our new home, and Hope was a big part of making that happen. Hope is a fantastic realtor, and a lovely person to spend time with, to boot. If you’re considering working with her, do it!
