About Colette Kabasakalian
My Client-First Philosophy
There are many qualities and skills that go into being an excellent real estate professional - integrity, in-depth community and market knowledge, marketing savvy, effective negotiation skills and a high-quality professional network, all of which are hallmarks of how I work.
That said, in my experience as a Ridgefield real estate professional, I've also found that providing the very best service is essentially about putting my clients first. This means keeping myself accessible, being a good listener as well as a good communicator, and responding quickly to your needs.
This "client first" philosophy has always been my approach and it requires me to continually improve my skills and ways of doing business. In addition, I've found that the latest technologies are enabling me to do everything I've always done, only much more quickly and efficiently. They've also helped me to extend the range of services I provide to my clients.
So when you decide that you'd like to buy or sell a home in the Ridgefield, Redding, Wilton, Danbury, Brewster, North Salem, South Salem, Cross River, Somers areas, please contact me.

We met Colette at an Open House while we were residing in
temporary quarters with all our possessions in storage.
Colette has a unique combination of professionalism, patience and intelligence
that ultimately led to our purchase of a home that was perfect for the time in
our lives. Adapting to our personalities and
listening, while advising two seniors who thought they knew it all, was
critical to our successful relationship and purchase. - JBGorenstein Ridgefield, CT
I am so happy that Colette was my agent! She was
always prepared and one step ahead of everyone ..
She sold my home in record time and also got me the highest dollar per square
foot in my neighborhood .. I
always knew she had my best interest first and foremost which allowed me to
move over and let her do her job like the professional she is.
Not only did I love and respect the fact that she worked hard and smart but
that she has integrity and consciousness. - LRubin Southeast, NY
Colette is absolutely wonderful! Her professionalism, along
with her dedication, and compassion, put us at ease the first time we met her.
She worked endlessly, in helping us to sell our family home.
We so appreciate, the countless times Colette went out of her way to assist
us,in any way she could. We recommend Colette
with our highest regards, to anyone buying or selling a home.
She is simply the best! - BMurphy Ridgefield, CT
Colette is fabulous. Not
only did she go beyond the call of duty in helping me find the perfect house
for my needs, she helped me with price negotiations, worked with my home
inspector, septic inspector, my lawyer, etc to insure the condition of the
house was sound and my closing went smoothly ....
I highly recommend her. She is a true
professional with integrity. SLowell Danbury, CT
