Stephanie Barnes Expertise
I have personally, and solely, purchased three homes and have sold two. Buying your dream home or selling your house is a very exciting as well as a very intimidating and stressful time in one's life. Journeying through the experience of homeownership has made me very sensitive about what my clients are feeling. I know how to be there for them, the way my Realtor was there for me.
Knowledge of the current Real Estate Market, follow up and tenacity are the key factors in a successful real estate transaction. I return correspondences in a timely manner and I stay on top of your file. Even when nothing is pressing, I make random calls to the attorneys involved in your transaction just to say hi and to see how things are going; and I stay in touch with the agents with whom I am working, to make sure things are going well at their end of the transaction. I don't like surprises. I like to keep ahead of the wave, and I know my clients feel the same way. I will make sure your deal stays tight and on track in the beginning, middle and end.
Before becoming a Realtor, I was part of corporate America. I worked as a Derivatives Document Specialist for both Long Term Capital Management in Greenwich, Connecticut and then for Salomon Smith Barney in New York, New York. I was also a Lead OCIP Administrator for MRM in Westport, CT. My background in these areas have given me a strong business sense combined with the know-how to best serve my client base. I understand that the needs of the client must be met with efficiency and a sense of urgency.
I was born and raised in Fairfield, Connecticut, and I know this area like the back of my hand. I never realized, until I was older, what a gift it was to have been raised in Fairfield. It's always so amazing to me how many people, who were raised here, come back to our area to put their roots down!
I hold a Bachelors Degree from the University of Connecticut in General Studies with a Focus in Law, and a Associates Degree in Culinary Arts from Johnson and Wales University in Providence, Rhode Island.
