That’s what my relocation client asked me as we went to visit five drop-dead gorgeous homes in Fairfield Connecticut.
Ping and her family were moving from South Carolina to pricey Fairfield County. Although the home sizes were not quite as grand here as what they were used to, I could sense a growing excitement about Fairfield as I shared some impressive numbers including our 11 elementary, three middle and two high schools, five beaches and three train stations.
A few added highlights like our huge Fourth of July celebration at Penfield Beach, the superb beet salad at The Chelsea and the crazy dog beach at Lake Mohegan didn’t hurt either. The visual tour was the icing on the cake!
Ping and her husband Danian both worked for the same company in South Carolina. She took a new job nearby, and he was able to stay with his company and transfer here. Their son and daughter would be going to elementary school.
The location of the home they chose in the university area was perfect. Their kids could walk to school. And when Danian’s parents came to visit, they could walk there with them. They were situated on a wonderful cul-de-sac and already had an elaborate play set in the back yard. The house was stunning inside and out. It was beautifully finished on four levels and came complete with a beautiful in-law suite. And if all that wasn’t enough, the garage was fully equipped with cabinetry and a high-end custom flooring that looked like you could eat off it!
How can something so wrong seem so right? Welcome to Fairfield!
