Chris grew up at her parents’ house on Wormwood Road near Fairfield University, but she later moved to Monroe with her husband Rich. There they enjoyed more space and land as they raised their two children, both grown up now.
After a couple of decades, they began to tire of the 20-minute minimum drive to get anywhere and the even longer commuting time to both their jobs. Chris has been a biolology professor at Fairfield U, and Rich was working in information technology at Bayer Healthcare, also quite far away. So they decided it was time to move back to Fairfield. Chris could be close to her mom who was still in her home in the university area, their commutes would be significantly shorter and they could make very good use of all the cool eateries downtown!
I met Rich and Chris at an open house in 2012, and have been showing them homes on and off since then. They have always liked the New England colonial with classic charm. They had made offers on a few homes along the way but found themselves outbid each time.
Finally, one day I happened to be online in the multiple listing service when a new listing popped on, and I knew it was perfect! I immediately took them to see the charming colonial on Wakeman Road. They made an offer that was negotiated and accepted, and as of this week they have a new home! They plan to rent out their house in Monroe for awhile before selling it and will be moving into their new university area colonial right away!
