Agent Details

Meet Rachel

New Canaan, Darien, Rowayton, CT
Rachel knows that there are a lot of luxury real estate agents to choose from, but she also knows what makes her stand out from the rest. Rachel’s entire working life led her to become a consistent top-producing Realtor in New Canaan, Darien, and Rowayton, CT for the last 26 years, leading her to become one of The Wall Street Journal's 2021 Top RealTrends agents, chosen from over 3 million real estate agents in America based on sales and dollar volume.
When looking for an agent, the most important qualities should include experience, trust, communication, transparency, creativity, analytical thinking, hyper-local knowledge, the ability to listen and learn, and the desire to serve and protect their client. An agent must understand the town, the historical home values, the quality of a home, the location, schools, and the knowledge of what will appreciate over time. This knowledge comes from years of experience and being able to navigate through all the curveballs real estate can throw your way.
Rachel knows that the way to truly know a town is by living in it and that choosing a community can be a daunting experience. It’s helpful to have an agent who has lived in northern New Jersey, Manhattan, Westchester County, NY, and Fairfield County, CT. This Tri-State experience can help you choose your ideal town with the knowledge needed to make the right choice for you.
Rachel has lived in Darien and New Canaan, CT. She has extensive experience with the schools, town programs, and the exceptional services available to all. Rachel has run several fund-raisers to support the local schools, houses of worship, animal shelters, children’s programs, homeless shelters and senior services. She strives to be an integral part of the community and will help you become one also.
Rachel grew up in Upper Montclair, NJ and due to her love of dogs, became a veterinarian’s assistant in her teens. She is an avid animal advocate and has sponsored many pet adoptions within her communities, has provided needed supplies, has fund-raised for local shelters and has donated money. 
After graduating from The Team School, a progressive and independent work and learn environment, she attended Montclair State University and New York University, achieving an advanced degree in English and Hotel and Restaurant Management/Hospitality. After working in tennis, health, and golf clubs, Rachel continued her commitment to luxury service and worked as the Manager of VIP Services at two iconic Central Park South hotels in Manhattan, where her clientele ranged from heads of business to politicians to TV and film celebrities. Her business acumen and her rich work history of helping the luxury consumer translated perfectly into selling luxury real estate in Connecticut.
With 100% commitment and a 7-day-a-week work ethic, a strong passion her job, and compassion for her clients, Rachel is the consummate real estate professional.
