Cheshire, Conn-   For over 40 years Calcagni Associates has dominated the Central Connecticut real estate marketplace as a leader in residential real estate, and has built a strong reputation within the new construction sector. Now they’re proud to announce that their team recently completed 100% sales for four premier communities: Stonegate, Sterling Ridge, Spring Meadow in Cheshire, and Rivercrest in Southington.

Calcagni Associates' Cheshire Sales Team

“Right now is an exciting time for Calcagni Associates” commented Steven Calcagni, president. “In a challenging market, we have been able to sell 100% of these new construction communities. It’s a huge testament to the quality of homes our builders construct- not to mention the expertise and skill of our new construction team in creating results-driven strategies. Our New Construction project managers and agents provide a first-rate level of customer service.”

Despite a sluggish real estate market, 2011 was a big year for Calcagni. Since January 2011, 20 agents have joined their team. They have continued to establish trust in the marketplace as evidenced by their industry-leading 23 percent market share within their core towns of Cheshire, Hamden and Wallingford, more than twice their nearest competitor and climbing. They were honored as a Top Work Places 2011 and ranked Number 2 for small firms in all industries and most recently they announced the opening of their new office in Southington.

 “Our growth in 2012 is going to be more dramatic because of our specialty in new construction” added Calcagni. “We see tremendous growth potential in the new construction arena in a variety of markets throughout Connecticut. Banks are cooperating financially to reposition the prices of residential new construction projects that will allow them to sell.” said Calcagni. “That, along with our expertise and experience handling new construction is a winning combination.”
