Meet Amanda!

Where are you from originally? I lived in New York City through Elementary school, and Greenwich for Middle and High School   What made you choose Rowayton over other towns in the area?

Meet Katy!

photo: Robert Sturman Where are you from originally? White Plains, NY   What made you choose Darien over other towns in the area? How long have you lived in your town? We have lived in Darien for 13 years. We chose it for the small town feel, great schools and amenities, proximity to NYC and I had opened a business in New Canaan (Aetheria Spa) and wanted to live close by. It was a hard decision but ultimately we chose Darien over...
