I would be delighted to help you with your real estate needs. I am a full-time real estate agent specializing in a small niche water community in Fairfield County called Black Rock (part of Bridgeport, Connecticut) and I am active in the surrounding towns as well.
I have my CRS (Certified Residential Specialist) designation, which is the highest REALTOR designation awarded.
My avocation is photography, so the photos I take for my listings are of professional quality.
I have been deeply involved in the Black Rock community since the 1980's and am especially focused on protecting the Ash Creek tidal estuary as President of the Ash Creek Conservation Association.
I enjoy photography and have sold some of my landscape photography. I also enjoy architectural photography and bring my photography skills to my listings using a Pentax camera with a wide angle Pentax lens, off camera lighting, and HDR (High Dynamic Range) photography.
My other speciality is Internet marketing. I've taken many courses on this and completed two designations: e-PRO and IMSD (Internet Marketing Specialist Designation). My expertise in Internet marketing allows my listings to be marketed 24/7 around the globe.
I have my Ph.D. from Columbia University. I am a full time real estate agent, who transitioned from business consulting in 2004.
I have achieved the highest designation awarded to REALTORS, the CRS (Certified Residential Specialist), as well the GRI, e-PRO, IMSD, CHP and other designations, because I believe it is important to have both the knowledge and experience to bring you the level of expertise you need as you buy or sell your most valuable asset.
|Dear Gail: Your thoroughly professional, courteous and EFFECTIVE sales efforts on my behalf are most appreciated. Beyond those wonderful traits, your enthusiasm is contagious and obviously something buyers pick up on immediately! In all my years as a buyer/seller and my connections with Architectural Digest magazine, I have never had a more enjoyable and productive relationship with any real estate agent – you are simply terrific. Especially important to me as a long distance seller, was your assiduous attention to ALL the details–attention that facilitated the sale and made my life so very much easier. Thanks! Know for sure that I would instantly choose you as my agent if the occasion ever again arises. Topping that, you are a delightful individual with a very caring and kind nature.|
|Gail is an extremely competent agent. She listens, works hard for her client, represented my property in the best possible light, created an appealing and descriptive website, and, best of all for me, sold my property with the least amount of hassle and best dollar return I have ever experienced with a home sale. I would whole-heartedly recommend Gail to anyone interested in selling or purchasing property.|
|This past December I was introduced to the complicated process of buying a piece of property. Just a few years out of college the ins and outs of real estate were a foreign language to me. As my agent, Gail, simplified and explained the ins and outs and helped make my first purchase pleasant and pain free. Gail listened to my needs and wants in a home and helped narrow down my search without trying to sell me on anything that didn’t fit my preferences. My experience with Gail was not only successful but enjoyable. I would recommend Gail to anyone searching for a new place to call their own.|
|Gail is the most dedicated and knowledgeable specialist we could have chosen to sell our Black Rock property. Her extensive knowledge of the area, her attention to detail and her patience to help us through the process, truly got the job done beyond our expectations-She even jumped my car on the side of the road. Talk about dedication!|

|Both Richard and I wanted to forward a note to sing your praises regarding the sale of both our home at 189 Ellsworth, as well as my condo at 155 Brewster Street. The customer service we experienced could not have been better, even through some of the most challenging episodes. You maintained a pro-active approach every inch of the way, always looking out for our best interests. Your flair for marketing, from the website, the mailings, and the open houses to the feature article in the Connecticut Post were beyond anything I have experienced in the sale of the five other properties I have sold over the last 25 years. And your thoroughness is simply astounding! And not to be overlooked, you maintained a professional, yet compassionate attitude when we were both losing our heads in the midst of crisis.|
If you are a seller looking for an Internet-savvy marketing strategy or a buyer who is interested in working with an agent with in-depth knowlege of Fairfield County, I would be glad to assist you.
