About Amy


A top-producing agent in Fairfield County since 2011, Amy has built her business on passion, dedication, superior service, and referrals from satisfied clients. She finds it extremely gratifying to share her knowledge of the abundant resources, sense of community, and lifestyle Coastal Connecticut offers, helping buyers and sellers achieve their unique goals.

Amy is fully invested in the homes and neighborhoods she represents, and most especially, in the clients she serves. Working in their best interest, she blends a personalized approach with the intimate local market insight and financial expertise required to execute a smooth, successful deal.

“The real estate process involves lots of emotions and financial considerations. I support my clients every step of the way with the data, guidance, and hand-holding they need to get to the closing table with confidence. I consider myself much more than an agent, but rather, a trusted advisor and advocate who’s there from day one to moving day and beyond.”

As a listing agent, Amy is known for her innovative marketing and command of social media and digital marketing to get the broadest exposure for her listings. She believes presentation is key, and as such, loves the Compass Concierge program which lets her clients maximize their home’s value and appeal with staging, improvements, painting and decluttering, with no upfront costs or interest.

Originally from Glastonbury, CT, Amy holds a B.A. in Economics from Brown University. She previously enjoyed a successful career as an Executive Recruiter in the Financial Services Industry, and in Private Banking at Brown Brothers Harriman & Company in Boston.

A Fairfield resident for over 12 years, Amy is very involved in community, and a firm believer in giving back and paying it forward. For nearly a decade, she has served on the President’s Council of the Norma Pfreim Breast Care Center, and in Board positions at The Greenfield Hill Congregational Church. Amy is also an active participant and organizer of various fundraising and philanthropic initiatives that support the local community and its residents.

What’s more, she’s the proud mother of two adult children who attended Fairfield public schools, and an avid health and fitness enthusiast who hits the Crossfit gym at 5:30 a.m. each morning!

"My wife and I engaged Amy Desel as our realtor for the purchase of a home in the Fairfield Beach area and sale of our townhome in Trumbull, CT in 2020 (crazy market!). We couldn’t be more pleased with Amy and how she worked with us on both transactions. She is a hard working pro and an even better person. We highly recommend Amy… She will be with you to the end and without question, we made the right choice using her. Thanks, Amy!" - Sarah and Chris

"Amy was really excellent! Her support to us was much more than simply buying a home. She helped us with all phases of moving to Westport- locating homes in the right school district for our son- as we moved to the United States for the first time from Europe. She is very proactive and very easy to work with. I highly recommend her!!!" - Andy

"Amy is World Class! Amy got a signed binder on our property in 6 days. As a result of her marketing and initiative we received multiple offers and got $25k over asking price in Easton which is typically a slow market. Amy's expertise and diligence guided us through the whole process to the closing table." - David

We will absolutely recommend her to anyone who is in need of a realtor." - Maggie
