Recently I was discussing real estate in my marketplace with another agent and came to the realization that not everyone is familiar with my section of the state. Most people from other parts of the country think of Connecticut as one of those tiny specks on the map.
Land wise we are the 3rd smallest state consisting of just over 5000 square miles. To put it in perspective if every state was our size all 50 could fit into the area of Texas. Connecticut is a mid-size state based on population. Our 3.5 million residents make us larger than Vermont, New Hampshire & Maine combined.
The advantage of being a smaller state is the ability to drive to nearby attractions rather quickly. My location is about the mid-point in the state on the southern shoreline. Within about 1-1/2 hours we can be in Providence, Springfield or New York City.
My primary area consists of the shoreline towns of Branford, Guilford and Madison plus the more affordable towns of North Haven & North Branford. Since I am a Connecticut native I am very familiar with many other parts of New Haven County and can offer assistance on an as needed basis from West Haven to Westbrook along the shore or Woodbridge to Wallingford for interior towns.
