Cheshire Office - 203-272-1821 ext. 320

What is your work experience?

I spent 10 years in Human Resources before joining Calcagni Associates. I decided to leave the corporate world and pursue a career where I can assist people in a much more personal way. There is something very satisfying about getting to know individuals, their wants and needs, and helping them to fulfill their goals. I enjoy and value individuality and love the versatility that comes with dealing with diverse individuals and unique circumstances.

What has been your most unusual Real Estate experience?

I once showed a house to a client three times. Each time we’d go to look at the house, the sky would look ominous. As soon as we got inside the house the wind would pick up, it would begin to pour, and the skies would light up with wicked lightening. This weather pattern happened to the same client, viewing the same home, on three different days at different hours. We never walked out of that house dry. I actually thought this weird phenomenon was a good omen, but in the end my customers didn’t end up buying that house. I'm pleased to say that they are very happily living in a house that they only previewed on fair weather days!

What are your hobbies and interests?

Anything that involves activity and my family. I have two young children that keep me on my toes and young at heart. Seeing life through their eyes keeps me balanced, grounded and puts everything into perspective.

What is a little know fact about yourself?

Growing up in Cheshire, I spent many a night and weekend during my teen years scooping ice cream at Sweet Claude’s. It was a great place to work and definitely spawned my strong passion for ice cream! Not that I should admit this, but my picture still graces the employee “wall of fame” in the ice cream shop.

What is your favorite restaurant?

Bricco’s in West Hartford Center. They have fabulous Italian food with a trendy twist. The ambiance is awesome and the food is always consistent. Hands down the best!

What can you provide?

Quality customer service, reliability and consistency. I am a great listener, which helps in acquiring a clear understanding of my clients' wants and needs. This ultimately leads to finding the right "fit" in a home for each unique homebuyer.

"You went above and beyond in your duties as my realtor, and you did so in the most genuine of ways."

"You helped make it an easy and enjoyable experience!"

"Brette...You have been amazing. Thank you for making this venture such a smooth one."

"The truly wonderful experience we had buying and selling our home with Brette Stern from your Cheshire office compelled us to inform you of what a treasure you have in her."

"When I put in an offer on a property, she kept me in the loop every step of the way. I felt knowledgeable and in control throughout the entire home buying process thanks to Brette. She stood by me up right up to the closing, going above and beyond. I would definitely recommend Brette to my friends and family or anyone looking to buy a home! I couldn't imagine a better experience then the one I got with her! " Bryanna W., Buyer

"We met her at an open house and we knew right away we wanted her to help us find a home.  Since that time, she has provided us additional assistance with recommending contractors and we value her efforts to keep in touch with us regularly.  She is our go-to agent, we recommend her our friends in the area and to date she has helped two of our friends sell their houses." Melanie & Mike K., Buyers

"We've worked with Brette three times now over the last several years. She's professional, personable, never pushy and goes above 'n beyond!  We've referred her in the past and would continue to do so.  She's truly a pleasure to work with." Matt & Jill, Clients

It was truly great working with Brette. We had been talking to couple more real estate agents during the time, but it was good to see that Brette took a significant interest in helping us find a house. Over the 8 months, that we were searching for the house, Brette made it very easy to coordinate and schedule the house viewings - sometimes, even at a very short notice. She is extremely responsive to any questions we had during our search, and even after! We would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a reliable realtor who allows the client to take the lead, when needed. We appreciate her services very much. Sharmistha - Buyer

Moving can be an incredibly stressful event. In my case, I felt under great pressure because I needed to sell my house quickly since I was relocating out of state. I was worried I would make poor decisions because I had an end date in sight and I had to meet that deadline. Fortunately, Brette was assigned to me and helped me maneuver through the selling process. She quarterbacked the entire transaction in a way that was methodical and without pressure. Her knowledge of the market and neighborhoods was critical for the sale. What I found really stood out about Brette is her dedication to the partnership of this transaction. She provided me with timely updates, was accessible any time I had a question and never added any stress to the process. In fact, I was impressed with how calm and focused she was every step of the way. Those traits gave me great confidence in her abilities and made the entire transaction flawless. It was a pleasure working with Brette and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a realtor who is professional, knowledgeable, respectful and thorough. Beth S. - Seller
