Accomplishments & Awards – A proud member of The Darien Board of Realtors, The New Canaan Board of Realtors, The National Association of Realtors, The Connecticut Association of Realtors, The Consolidated Multiple Listing Service and The Darien Multiple Listing Service.

Background - I have lived in the greater New York City (Westchester & Fairfield counties) area all my life and moved with my wife from the city to Darien in 1994. We now have three children and are both actively involved in all aspects of this wonderful community. The towns of Darien, New Canaan and Rowayton are each exceptional places to live, work and raise a family – great schools, wonderful waterfront areas, quaint villages, several yacht clubs and country clubs, all within easy access to neighboring urban areas such as Stamford, Norwalk, White Plains and New York. I enjoy golf, sailing, fishing, tennis, paddle tennis, skiing and most family sports – including coaching all my children in their various sports activities!

Professionally, my career has always taken a duel path – one in the international business development segment working for various small to mid-sized companies managing their sales and marketing activities, and two – investing, developing and consulting in real estate properties throughout our local communities. After nearly twenty years of extensive global business travel, it was time to make my passion for real estate my sole professional focus. I have never looked back. It is immensely rewarding providing top personalized service to the many wonderful clients that have entrusted me with finding or selling their homes. This "real estate process" requires a special understanding of each person, their needs and expectations, and how those very personal elements can be completely satisfied when discovering the right property at the right value. This remains my sole objective as a full-time, professional real estate specialist.

Helped me rent a Single Family home in Norwalk, CT.

Stephan reached out to us after I showed some interest in properties on Zillow. I was hesitant at first, but he continued to impress me as he sent me listings to look through and consistently checked in with us. We were communicating a lot via email because we were moving from out of state. When we had a chance to come look at properties he made time for us and spent two days showing us properties as well as his favorite restaurants and places in the area. He's lived in the area for a long time so he knows all the ins and outs of each neighborhood and city. He was respectful of out budget limitations and only showed us properties that were realistic for our family. When it came time to choose a property he did all the negotiating for us and ultimately got us into the apartment we wanted for the price we wanted. I have nothing but positive things to say about Stephan and I hope to work with him again in the future.  More Less

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $725K in Wilton, CT.

Stephan is the best. My fiancée was going to work from the house, and so had exacting requirements for the house. We looked at over 80 houses with Stephan, and made three offers before making the offer that was accepted. Throughout, he was patient, resourceful, knowledgable, and a real counselor about the whole process. We felt he fully internalized what we were looking for; he never tried to "sell" us a house, to try and convince us to buy. Stephan also has a background in construction, and so has a great eye for what is wrong for a house. When he first gave us a rough estimate of some substantial revisions we were thinking of, we thought we better get a quote from a contractor. The contractor's quote was just about what Stephan's estimate was, so we learned to trust his pricing for renovations and repairs.

Throughout the negotiations for all the houses we made offers on, he was great; giving us realistic advice about offers and responses to offer, and always considering our goals in the process.

With his help, we ended up with a house we love, and his patience and understanding were a big reason why didn't settle for one of the other 80 houses we saw.

Stephan is great, in every respect, and fully deserving of five stars in all the categories above.

Found a tenant for a Single Family home in Redding, CT.

Stephan does his homework and knows the market very well. He rented my property in Redding in only a couple weeks to great tenants that I still have 2 years later. You won' t be disappointed working with Stephan I can promise you that! If your looking to sell, buy or rent, Stephan would be a great place to start.  More Less
