As a frequent customer of the Colony Grill in Fairfield, CT I can understand the excitement over this CT eatery’s first Westchester location. The menu is simple…thin crust pizza with about 13 different toppings to chose from but the simplicity of the menu and the quality of the pizza is what makes this place so extraordinary. Some favorites in our house are the hot oil pizza (their signature) and the salad pizza…but they are all delicious. Colony delivers the feel of an Irish pub with the extra benefit of tasty pizza. The Port Chester location also offers views of the Byram River from its patio. If you head there to eat please share your reviews here.

Enjoy!

Second Quarter 2018 Executive Summary (Excerpt)
by Anthony Cutugno (Senior Vice President/Director of Private Brokerage):

The luxury market in Westchester ($2M and higher) improved after posting a 20% decline in Q-1. Year-to-date, luxury sales are down just 7% and Q-2 sales kept pace with the same period last year. Despite a decline in Westchester’s luxury market, the ultra-luxury segment of the market ($5M+) is performing better than it has in years. Through June 30th, there are a total of 21 closed and pended sales over $5M, compared to 19 sales in 2016 and 18 sales in 2017. Pended sales will likely close this year, and 2018 is on track to exceed the previous two years. More significant are
the number of $10M+ sales this year. Two closed and three are pending – a striking increase from 2016 and 2017, when a single $10M+ sale closed each year. The ultra-luxury segment momentum is evidence that buyers are resurfacing. Their behavior is marked by a combination of right-brain and left-brain decision-making. A property’s location, lifestyle and quality appeal to
their emotions, which is important but often not enough to make an offer. Typically, when the left-side of the brain can rationally identify value and justify the purchase price, a buyer will confidently move forward. Both heart and head have to be in agreement because one without the other creates inertia. For sellers, there is plenty of competition in the luxury market for buyers’ hearts and minds. Positioning your home to entice a buyer is equally as important as pricing your home realistically. One without the other leads to a listing that can languish on the market.
