Top Agent Q&A: Julianne C. Ward

Q: Tell me about the different neighborhoods in Greenwich.

A: Greenwich has a wonderful mix of neighborhoods, each with its own unique personality, and all within one hour from New York City. Whether you prefer the ease of downtown living, a community by the water, a quaint country road, historical property, or a gated community, there is something for everyone. I represent all of the neighborhoods in Greenwich, including Cos Cob, Riverside, Old Greenwich, etc., and neighboring Stamford as well. As a longtime resident of Greenwich, I am deeply integrated into the community and familiar with all of its incredible amenities. The broad range of exceptional homes and rental opportunities in the Greenwich area, and the outstanding schools, restaurants, shopping, beaches, cultural and recreational activities, proximity to airports, as well as the low property taxes, make Greenwich a highly desirable place to live.

Q: What can sellers do to optimize a quick sale?

A: In this competitive market, you want to show your home at its best. I tell all my clients to do the same thing: clean, paint, fix anything that is broken, update what needs to be updated (within reason), unclutter, stage, and price according to the market. If you do this, you increase your chances of selling quicker than average. 

Q: Anything else you’d like to share? 

A: There have been many exciting changes in the real estate industry in the last few years, and technology continues to evolve. While online real estate sites provide an invaluable opportunity to market a listing, nothing can take the place of an agent’s local market knowledge, understanding of how best to prepare/showcase a home, ability to navigate different markets, and experience with negotiation. We know what is needed to help clients present their home in the best light, and we know the competition.
