Fairfield County has been my home since middle school. After graduating from Staples High School in Westport Connecticut, finishing my undergraduate from Clark University in Worcester Massachusetts, and a Master's degree from Southern Connecticut State University, I lived or worked in Stamford, Norwalk, Westport, Milford, and New Haven before buying my first home in the Fairfield Beach area. I live with my husband who commutes daily to NYU, my daughter who graduated from Elon University and is now working on her advanced degree from SCSU, and my two adorable dogs Roger (Havanese) and Charlie (Terrier mix)! I’ve made my big move during the housing bubble in 2004 and have never looked back!

Your castle. My mission.
After an exhaustive home search, my clients finally came upon the historic home of their dreams in Rowayton and put in an offer. But the pandemic was still strong and so was the buyer competition. What did their Realtor do next?

...But it seemed to come out of the blue the day Kelly called me and told me she had “never planned to stay in that little house so long” and that they wanted to make a move within Fairfield right away! It's always about the customer.

In case you'd like to know a little about Linda Raymond, I came to Fairfield County when moving from New Jersey to Westport just before entering the eighth grade.
My Focus was Always About the Customer Long Before I became a Realtor.
After attending Staples High School in Westport, I went to Clark University in Worcester, Massachusetts and graduated as a biology major before returning to the area for my first job as a research assistant at Yale. I continued school part time and earned a Masters degree in exercise science from SCSU. My career then moved to corporate health and fitness in Stamford where I worked for consulting firms whose clients were companies seeking to improve the health of their employees. I worked closely with the employees of our corporate clients.
Many Years in the Corporate World Shaped the Professional Skill Profile I Utilize Today.
From there, I evolved into program design and management for employee health and productivity in large companies like IBM with dispersed national populations. I worked with my team to develop and deliver innovative programming with a range of delivery strategies to engage employees through their benefits and occupational health departments.
After 13 years of facilitating programming and data management on a population-scale basis, I began to feel the need to to connect with individuals again.
It's Personal and Monumental!
After I purchasing my first home in 2004 in the Fairfield beach area, I was amazed by how intense, emotional, and complicated buying a home and making a move really was.
One's home is their largest asset and holds tremendous emotional value, so it's not surprising that making a move is a monumental endeavor. Add to that the challenges of the market conditions and the complexities of the process, and the stress can be over the top!
Our home is our castle. It's where we live, love, grow, and now, where most of us work as well. It's where we are safe and sound. So my current passion is to take my clients through the process of moving from one home to another so that they achieve the optimal terms and outcome for their priorities and can enjoy peace of mind at the same time.
Since 2005, I have been back to working one-on-one with people here in Fairfield, Westport, and surrounding areas to guide them through the huge decision to buy, sell, and move to a new home!
