Pine Creek Waterway, Fairfield, CT

My listing meeting at the lovely home on the Pine Creek waterway was scheduled for next week. I had met with the homeowners, completed my market analysis, and created a comprehensive custom marketing plan that included professional photos, aerial views, and twilight views. But I needed a nice photo to use in my presentation materials, and as always, I set out to take my picture.

The home was gorgeous from every vantage point, but the critical view had to combine the dramatic walls of glass facing the water, the fabulous dock, and of course, the water views!

I could not capture everything in one view from the edge of the property. But there was a ramp extending into the water just next to the property that I set out towards to capture my shot. Here’s what happened.

Photo showing scraped knee and shin.
Photo showing mud all over my legs and shoes.
Photo showing a big bruise on my leg!
Photo showing low tide and the mud at the bottom of the creek.
Beautiful photo of the home!
….And the winning photo! (Even the professional photographer didn’t capture this angle!)

Here’s what my client had to say-

That’s my story with a happy ending! Here’s a little more info about this property

  2. Wow, Michael, thank you so much for taking the time to write this detailed review, and at 2 AM on top of that! I sincerely appreciate your feedback!! ❤️❤️


  3. Linda did a TREMENDOUS job marketing and selling our house. Saying she “went overboard” is an understatement. After interviewing several other accomplished brokers, we decided to go with Linda for several reasons:

    – Linda took the time to really get to know the house and prepare for the pitch (and “went overboard” in the process of taking pictures for the pitch)

    – in the pitch, it was clear she “got” the essential elements of our fairly unique home, and articulated well the kind of buyers it would appeal to

    – Linda’s pitch was exceptionally well put together and compelling – it became clear she knew how to market and to sell

    – Linda laid out a marketing plan the incorporated so much more than the standard listing on the website and MLS, including blogs and videos, house tours, mailings, Facebook and other social media postings, along with a cadence and schedule for them that showed real planning

    – Linda listened as much as she talked, gave insightful responses to our questions about the state of the market, the right pricing strategy in that context, and how to evolve it if needed

    In the end, Linda generated multiple offers, numerous showings and delivered a great result.

    We would highly recommend working with Linda to sell your home!
