about marta

my Mission

To provide clients with both an overview of the market and in-depth analysis specific to their home and needs.

To provide choices, walking clients through various options and potential outcomes based on varying factors.

To remain knowledgeable about market trends, marketing and negotiating techniques, and current technologies.

To give clients a greater level of comfort in a stressful time by providing the service they need, keeping communication open, and follow up, lots of follow up.

Let’s face it, for the vast majority of us, our homes are our largest investment. According to NAR, the National Association of Realtors, the average American stays in their home for 14 years. Will you remember all the details involved to execute a home sale or purchase? I can help guide you through all the scenarios so you can continue to concentrate on your life!

Extraordinary Experiences

Over 21 years in Real Estate…

I tell all of my clients, whether $500,000 or $5,000,000, there are pros and cons to every home. With the many transactions in which I’ve been fortunate to participate, I can honestly say they have each been unique. Guiding clients around potential pitfalls is a huge part of the value in working with a Realtor. I think in terms of worst case scenario to be as prepared as possible for the challenges that pop up.

Core Values

These are the fundamental beliefs of a person or organization. These guiding principles dictate behavior and can help you decide with whom you’d want to do business.

  • Integrity
  • Honesty
  • Accountibilty
  • Diligence
  • Perseverance

A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME

The short but sweet version… 

With over 21 years of experience, I’ve been able to serve my clients in so many ways. Some are first-time buyers while others have bought and sold several homes with me. New construction or tear-down, I’ve worked with builders and developers as well. How may I help you?

I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in French and German from Fordham University and speak Hungarian fluently. I tell everyone I’m a newcomer to Greenwich since I’ve only lived here since 1987. Most of my friends have been in town for generations! I grew up in neighboring Westchester County.

 

Raising four kids taught me that flexibility and a good sense of humor can help in any situation! It also gave me great exposure to the excellent Greenwich Public Schools both as a parent and as a volunteer in many roles.  From nursery schools through after school activities, the varied needs and interests of my kids made me appreciate all that the town and area has to offer.

Being involved, from design to finish, on several renovations of my own home gave me great insight into what it takes to make a house work. Although I know to defer to the various experts in their fields, I also know what to look for and what questions to ask when looking at a property.

Experience, drive, education, heart, and a specialization in technology…

                                all the reasons Marta is consistently one of the top Greenwich Realtors.

Whether selling or buying a home, Marta Stroll is your consummate real estate professional.
