As an Old Greenwich resident of 50 yearsI had initially intended to select one of my friends affiliated with one of the prominent Greenwich real estate firms for marketing the sale of my five lost in Old Greenwich. Let me explain why I chose to list my properties with Sabine on an exclusive basis instead: Sabine’s in-depth knowledge of the Greenwich real estate market and her ability to develop a vision and “master plan” for the lots was impressive. He subsequent follow-through at every step was simply excellent. After examining the properties, Sabine bought one of parcels for herself and was the first to develop it. The property of her choice was in my opinion the least desirable. As it turned out, it was the best of the five lots - she was right! Sabine built a quality house, which in turn “set the standard” for the other four homes that were also built. As an adjoining property owner I could not have been happier all around.

Sabine Schoenberg is my former wife; over the years, Sabine and I have developed several properties together in Greenwich, CT - and I can say without reservation that Sabine’s real estate and development expertise has consistently been a major factor in the success and profitability of our projects. Most recently, and after our divorce, Sabine found my current property for me. Unlike most brokers who typically look at the house itself, she illustrated the overall property’s value as a real estate investment. She provides a vision for each property which she then translates into “bricks and mortar” by drawing on her considerable construction know-how and resources.
From the start, you helped guide us in figuring out what we were searching for. You listened and understood our concerns and needs. You focused the search efforts for us so we didn’t need to spend a lot of time looking at properties which could not have been right for us. Your patience was key in helping us find the right property. Your knowledge of the Greenwich community and your architecture/building background were extremely helpful skills which we think are rare to find in most realtors. We were fortunate to have your assistance.

When I retained PrimeSites to locate build able lots, I was most concerned about the unique and complex nature of the Greenwich real estate market. Sabine’s knowledge of location, lot shape, building costs, materials, competent contractors and marketing strategy was/is impressive. Your expertise in negotiating with planning & zoning, building, health and wetland departments was invaluable. Unfortunately, I did not follow your advise on the five-lot subdivision in Old Greenwich. Had I gotten involved when you advised me to do so, it would have yielded approx. $2.2MM in profit over an 18-month development timetable. I my opinion, you are the consummate Greenwich real estate consultant. I would most appreciate the opportunity to invest with you in the future.

Sabine’s tireless efforts in working with principals as well as cooperating with other brokers providing information regarding building requirements lead to a successful sale of my property.

When we switched to Sabine new ideas and direction became the order of the day. Before her, the only movement we had was the lowering of the price. While the house had been listed with a well-known agency for months before, new groups of people now toured the house and property continually. Sabine knew essential town officials, planners and architects and expert tradesmen - without all of it we could not have sold the house. Thank you again and again.
