"Rachel Walsh is by far the best realtor that we have ever worked with during our purchasing and selling of 13 homes. She is very professional, extremely knowledgeable and reliable. We were immediately impressed with her organizational skills, preparation, and insights of the marketplace. She has the highest level of integrity and is someone that you can trust with the important task of buying or selling a home. We highly recommend Rachel Walsh!" - Dennis and Jill

"Rachel is extremely knowledgeable, has great insights, and is very organized and easy to work with. We relocated to Fairfield County from out of state and she helped us get a good understanding of the area so that we could focus in on the town that would be best for us. She has provided great recommendations for local resources that have helped us settle into our new home and better get to know the area. She is a pleasure to work with."

"Rachel is a phenomenal real estate professional. We were unfamiliar with the Connecticut market and she provided us with a wealth of general information about numerous towns in Fairfield County. After showing us homes in New Canaan, Darien, Westport and Southport, we ultimately purchased a home in Southport. Throughout the entire process Rachel was extremely professional, responsive, patient, and provided us with excellent representation and guidance. After the closing, Rachel continued to help us in countless ways to become familiar with our new community and feel welcome. Rachel goes above and beyond for her clients!" - Jim and Catherine

"We were referred to Rachel by a friend when looking for a new home. Rachel was very knowledgeable about the area, extremely helpful and attentive. We have remained close since our purchase 2 years ago. We have moved several times before moving to CT and Rachel was by far the BEST Realtor we have ever used."

"Rachel helped us purchase our home in New Canaan. She is highly knowledgeable and experienced in the local market. She is also very dedicated and lovely to work with overall. We were very impressed, for example, with her diligence in navigating our home inspection report. Her expectations were equivalent or perhaps even higher than ours in terms of what we needed the sellers to address, and she followed up on all items very carefully. Since moving into our home, Rachel has continued to be a great resource in terms of recommending contractors and keeping us in the loop regarding town events. She's incredibly hard working, smart and caring - a wonderful combination!"
