TESTIMONIALS

“Mary is an exceptional real estate professional. We worked with Mary to market our vintage home of more than 40 years - a challenging client. Mary’s deep experience, abundant patience and discerning eye for value lead to a very successful transaction for us and buyer of our home. Her considerable independence and confidence were valuable as we navigated the sale process for the first time in 40+ years. Finally, Mary is a skillful communicator with speed and accuracy as characteristics. I would engage Mary again and offer a very strong recommendation.” JRL

“The New Canaan, CT market is tough and most homes over $2.5M sit on the market for months and sometimes years. Mary knows how to price and stage a home so it will sell quick. Ours sold in 1 week! Thanks Mary!”

“Mary is not only a pleasure to work with, she is knowledgeable and works tirelessly to get the job done. She has sold several of our homes over the years and is our go-to agent who will do what it takes to get your home sold too! “

“My husband and I had a wonderful experience with Mary Higgins of Halstead’s New Canaan office. We worked with Mary for several years as we were deciding to move our family out of New York City. She is a real estate agent par excellence due to her experience, deep knowledge of the housing market and passion to get her clients the best possible deal. Mary is smart, creative, hard-working, a savvy negotiator and a person of the highest character. When we were finally ready to move, we realized the supply was small for the type of home we wanted. Mary worked with her counterparts in town to show us houses that were not yet on the market. When we found the perfect home, she guided our negotiating strategy and helped resolve several issues that could have been deal-breakers. Mary is always advocating for her clients and is well respected by those who do business with her. She supported us with our move long after the inspection was completed and the house closed. Since she has lived in New Canaan for over 30 years, she helped us with service providers and finalizing school choices. We cannot thank Mary enough for her dedication and support during what can be a stressful process. With Mary by our side we knew we had an advocate and a friend who always had our best interests at heart.”

“My husband and I, Gavin and Kathy Brackenridge, are 30 year residents of New Canaan, and have known Mary Higgins for the entire time period through several personal transactions, recommendations to friends who have benefited greatly from her expertise, and her work as a consistently sought after real estate agent. Mary has been regularly recognized and received awards as a Fairfield County leading sales person for her knowledge of all real estate aspects, her personal service with its attendant customer satisfaction. We could not recommend an individual more highly for her thoughtfulness, knowledge, expertise, and integrity than Mary. Mary was the listing broker for our home on Valley Rd in New Canaan. She has also been our agent for several rentals in New Canaan.” Gavin and Kathy Brackenridge
