Buying or selling a home is one of the most important transactions in the lives of many people. It surprises me that so many people do not do the research they should about the company and agent or team they choose to represent their most valuable asset. Do your homework and our integrity will speak for itself. The words “trust Me” mean nothing…let us Earn your trust and prove our integrity from past experiences and testimonials.
The VanderblueTeam is considered the COMMUNITY experts in Fairfield County. Because we all share our knowledge, skill sets and research with each other, our TEAM can better educate our clients on the vast array of opportunities and advantages each town offers in Fairfield County. You are not only buying a home…but a town, a neighborhood, a community, a school system… ”It takes a Village” to truly educate you and allow you to make the RIGHT decision for your family. We are networked in with each town and offer Welcome Discounts through our Vanderblue Neighborhood Network to introduce to the community that is perfect for you!
Our success is measured everyday…by the satisfaction of our clients, by the newest technology we implement, by the most recent creative idea a teammate brings to the table, by the number of buyers we expose to our properties, by continuing to educate ourselves daily, by networking beyond compare, by marketing Fairfield County at the highest level. Of course we must evaluate success by the number of sales we close…and we are in the TOP 1 % in the country, closing over 100 Million in sales in one year. But we will NEVER rest on our laurels and continue to strive to improve all that we offer our valued friends and clients.
