Nothing shows better than the look, feel, and smell of a new home...

In 2017 the average time on market for homes over $5 million in Greenwich was over 300 days, with homes going on and off the market anywhere from two to nine times before selling. We created our House-Lift™ program to be a weapon for homeowners and realtors to use in order to sell their multi-million-dollar homes faster and for more money than the other homes in their price range. The House-Lift™ is essentially a top to bottom ‘face-lift,” exclusively designed for homes valued at over $3 million in Greenwich and Westchester County- making them move-in ready!
