Glastonbury, CT —
The perfect blend of both historic beauty and modern convenience
Glastonbury, Connecticut is a town with the perfect blend of both historic beauty and modern convenience. We are fortunate to have The Historical Society of Glastonbury which informs residents and visitors alike about our rich history at the Museum on the Green, as well as through educational and promotional events such as the Bread and Beer Demonstration and the Walking Tours. Did you know Glastonbury is the Connecticut town with the largest inventory of Colonial homes? We also are proud to have the oldest continuous operating ferry in the country, dating back to 1655. The Ferry Landing is my favorite place to park the car, and take a walk past sunflowers, tobacco barns, and working farms.
Essex, CT —
Welcome to Essex and Bon Voyage!
Ah, Paris! No doubt Paris is a romantic city but I have mixed feelings about it. Do I miss Paris? Yes, for the memories of visiting it with my family. Yes, for my favorite museum, the Musee D’Orsay where I immersed myself in Camille Pissarro’s beautiful paintings. Yes, for all the breathtaking architecture I saw while I was on the Bateau Mouche along the Seine River. But, a definitive NO for the scary traffic and the crowded atmosphere everywhere.
Colchester, CT —
You Can Have It All In Colchester
Many people move to Colchester for its convenience to many major highways. Some call it “The Hub.” Once you get here you start to realize the Colchester is so much more. With its small town feel and wonderful community atmosphere you will get that "I am home" feeling from day one.
Shelton, CT —
When I first moved to Shelton in 1980 it was a totally different city than you will see today. To me, it was “country living.” There was farmland everywhere and just down the street from us was a milk machine. Yes, you stopped at the milk machine on Walnut Tree Hill Road, put your money in (cash) and when you were short on milk at 10:00 pm, you were always in luck. This was surely a primitive version of our now 24/7 convenience stores.
Kent, CT —
Welcome to Kent, CT, the home for everyone!
As a visitor to this quintessential New England town, you will be greeted by warm smiles and enlightening conversations with the locals. You can stay at the one of the six B and B’s and Inns where you will be spoiled by your innkeepers. Or, if you are smitten by Kent (and who isn’t), you can choose a tour of your future home with one of the real estate agents in town or nearby New Milford, CT.
Glastonbury, CT —
Welcome to Glastonbury!
Welcome to Glastonbury! As an award winning, top producing real estate agent in town, my job is not only to help my clients buy or sell their homes, but to make the newcomers feel at home in their new community… my community. I live here and my children attend school here in Glastonbury.
Westport, CT —
Liveliest Neighborhood on the Long Island Sound
You might think a neighborhood with dozens of cool restaurants, a fantastic ice cream shop, a rowing club, kayak/paddleboard rental store, outdoor music and playground — all within a few steps of the train station — would be too much to ask for.
Throw in a Cape Cod clone — with a private island, two yacht clubs and a beach, just a short hop down the road — and you must think it’s really a figment of a realtor’s imagination.
Roxbury, CT —
Roxbury is One of Those Places
There are a few spots in this state that make you slow down and sit a while. Roxbury is one of those places. Nothing fancy here. No big box stores, supermarkets, or shops. No stop lights. Yep, that’s right no stop lights. The only time traffic ever really backs up in Roxbury is during Pickin’ and Fiddlin’ when the Roxbury Volunteer Fire Department takes over Hurlbut Park for the day hosting picking and fiddling contests for all ages
Darien, CT —
A Perfect Summer or Early Fall Weekend in Darien
Get up early Saturday morning and take a walk through Woodland Park with it’s many trails. You will feel like you are miles away from civilization. Alternatively, try the loop around Long Neck Point with beautiful vistas of Darien Harbor and Long Island Sound. On a clear day, you will be able to see New York City. You will likely see many other people out on this route jogging, pushing strollers or walking dogs. Then go out for breakfast at one of the many local spots for the perfect bacon, egg and cheese or a fresh bagel. Some favorite spots are Jake’s Place, Uncle’s Deli or UCBC for great bagels.
Rowayton, CT —
The Oyster Town
Edging its way down the Five Mile River to Long Island Sound, the seaside village of Rowayton offers a unique blend of salty but traditional appeal. Once known primarily as an oyster town, Rowayton has developed into a combination of suburb and resort village.
