 How time flies when you blog!


It seems like yesterday when we started working together, driving around town looking at real estate for sale, throwing opinions and thoughts around on everything from shutter construction to gravel driveways and the proper stone wall. We are “wanna be” architects, fabric designers and antique dealers. Looking for the perfect house for a customer, or working with a seller is more than the transaction for us.  It’s the love of all things that go along with owning a home.

So we thought it would be a great idea to start a dialogue – a blog – to throw around and share all the ideas and thoughts we pick up out on the trail. Talking about the houses we love and the details we see that make a house someone’s home, both inside and out.

Here are some of the exciting things that happened at Real in Darien this year:

We averaged 2.5 blogs a week!!!

We ventured into Rowayton as an extension of the Darien market.

We added our consignment page for the love of great secondhand finds.

We realized quickly we live in a community filled with dynamic and extremely talented neighbors and friends. We call them our Local Lusts.

We hosted our first trunk show, featuring Sister Parish, at 593 Hollow Tree Ridge Road.

We met Miles Redd and Jeffrey Bilhuber… highlights of our year!

We have grand goals and big ideas for our second year, including more great content and exciting deals on the horizon. We also have big news to announce….stay tuned!

We are passionate about what we LOVE and we hope our blogs reflect that. Thank you for your support, your “likes” and subscriptions, and your constant encouragement. We have made a few mistakes along the way but are not afraid to to learn from them.  More importantly, we will not let a few critics stop us from trying something new.  We are grateful to our firm, Kelly Associates, for their support and abitlity to see the big picture in this business. We are on this ride for the long haul….enjoying every minute!
