Amanda Bryan: Amanda (Briggs) Bryan has an MBA from Columbia Business School and has been in residential real estate for 15 years: both as an agent and a sales manager at Houlihan Lawrence in New Canaan and Darien and then at Compass across Connecticut - now exclusively in full-time sales. Amanda takes the approach of a consultant, using her previous career in wealth management to help clients make informed, thoughtful decisions with a low-pressure, long-term frame of mind. A former Division I lacrosse player, Amanda understands the importance of achieving, goal-oriented teamwork and applies that mentality to all of her work with clients. Having grown up in New Canaan, lived in NYC for 10 years and then moved to Connecticut 17 years ago, Amanda not only has great depth of knowledge about several towns, but also understands the nuances of moving from the city to the suburbs.
Megan Burley: Growing up in Miami, Florida, Megan never dreamed she’d end up living in and loving suburban Connecticut. After living in New Orleans, New York and London, Megan found herself in the charming coastal Connecticut hamlet of Rowayton in 2005. Being a part of such a close-knit community made putting down roots and calling Fairfield county “home” very easy. Twelve years and four kids later, Megan made the move from Rowayton to neighboring town New Canaan, also known as “the next station to heaven” where she currently resides. Megan was introduced to architecture and design while pursuing her BA in Art History at Tulane. That, combined with her past sales experience in luxury fashion and her love of working with people, triggered an interest in the real estate industry. Megan’s love of design helps her guide listing clients with staging and marketing ideas as well as help buyer clients envision a home’s potential. When not selling real estate, Megan is happily kept busy by her sons, daughters, dogs, cats, chickens and ducks.
Spencer Thune: After graduating from the University of Pennsylvania, Spencer began his career in the hospitality industry working for the renowned Ritz-Carlton before transitioning to financial sales at Bloomberg and then fintech firm AlphaSense, a combination that makes Spencer uniquely equipped to provide superior client service, expert contract negotiation, and an awareness of how different asset classes within financial markets (including crypto-currency) impact real estate clients. Spencer has deep ties to the community across several towns, enabling him to provide insight on multiple areas. Spencer is an avid squash, lacrosse and hockey player and was recruited to the University of Pennsylvania to play squash - making Spencer no stranger to the competitive edge needed for clients in this market. Spencer, his wife and three adorable daughters have been New Canaan residents for five years.
