For Brown Harris Stevens Connecticut Agent Jennifer Runnette, persistence and tenacity were key when it came to selling 18 Wallacks Drive—a sprawling compound known as Wallacks Point—amid Stamford's competitive real estate market. At $8.4 million, it is the highest home sales price in the city's history. The record was previously held by another BHS agent, Rob Johnson.
I think many of the buyers looking in Fairfield County right now are a bit frantic as buyer demand combined with the scarcity of inventory, which is unprecedented in Lower Fairfield County, has created an amazing sense of urgency and intensity in the market. — Jennifer Runnette
