We worked with Faith for over six months until we found the house that was right for us. During that time, she showed us the ins and outs of the market and educated us on everything that we needed to know. When we ultimately found the house to purchase, we did so knowing that we were making an informed decision. Faith demonstrated patience, professionalism, and persistence, and we ended up getting a house that we love at a price with which we were comfortable.

We highly recommend Faith to anyone who is considering moving to the Westport CT area. Faith was enormously helpful from beginning to end. My wife and I did not have a lot of time to devote to a search, and Faith took the time to listen to us and quickly developed a very good sense of what we were—and were not—looking for relative to all of the available homes for sale. Beyond that, Faith has an encyclopedic knowledge of the area: she advised us on the pros and cons of individual houses, builders and contractors, streets, neighborhoods, and more. Once we found the home we really wanted, Faith remained invaluable as an advocate in negotiations and in every way before, during, and after the closing. I could not imagine anyone more helpful, and recommend her highly.
Faith helped us purchase a new home, specifically new construction. She was instrumental in guiding us through this process and making sure that our new home turned out the way that we wanted it to. Faith's tireless efforts helped us finally move into a house that we will call home for many years. I could not imagine going through this experience without her.
We were lucky enough to have Faith recommended to us when we relocated our family from NYC to Westport CT. Faith first gave us a complete overview of the town and was so knowledgeable on all the ins and outs of buying a home. When we found what we were looking for, she expertly provided guidance as we negotiated the price and terms. She was a true partner in this process and her input and support continued until we were well situated and all moved in. Faith did not just make the sale and move on. She helped us with service providers, landscape recommendations, electricians and plumbers. She is honest and has tremendous work ethic and integrity. I would highly recommend Faith to anyone looking for a home in Westport. You would be lucky to have her.

We used Faith to purchase our home in Weston. Though my wife and I would spend time looking through on-line listings, Faith had the uncanny knack for finding compelling homes for sale that we had somehow overlooked. Her knowledge and insight of the local market and her awarness of homes about to enter the market is second to none. Thanks to her efforts, my family is thoroughly enjoying our new home. I would recommend Faith Schachne without reservation.
Faith is an extremely knowledgeable and experienced Real Estate Agent who really knows how to make home buying a pleasant experience. Not only did she help us locate the perfect property to meet our family needs, but she also helped negotiate the deal and expedite the closing. Faith is a true professional who will always be our go-to real estate agent for Westport CT.
When my family moved from NYC to Westport CT, Faith Schachne was our agent. She was fantastic in every way. She understood our needs immediately and showed us only appropriate properties. She was extremely knowledgeable about the different neighborhoods, schools, community offerings, as well as everything we needed to know about home ownership. She guided as through the process with expertise and made the experience enjoyable. Her insight and advice was truly invaluable. Faith always made herself available to us and went above and beyond what one can expect from an agent. Faith continued to be helpful long after our transaction was complete. She helped make our transition from the city to Westport smooth and enjoyable. I still call Faith if I am lost or need a good restaurant or service provider recommendation! She is smart, upbeat and extremely sharp. I highly recommend her.

Faith was extremely helpful in obtaining our family a rental. We had very little time on our side as our buyers wanted us out of our home very quickly. Faith negotiated with the rental owner using her skill and expert knowledge of the CT law (the rental owner was using a friend who was a NY attorney) to quickly obtain a rental agreement for us. She even had to provide the homeowner with a CT lease agreement! We moved in within our time frame and had no issues for the year we lived at the rental. I would most highly recommend faith for any real estate transaction in the CT marketplace.
We have known Faith Schachne for almost ten years, and have always found her to be a person of great integrity, intelligence, and pragmatism. She is endlessly resourceful, meticulous in execution, always available to her clients, discreet and highly professional. Faith knows the Fairfield County housing market, and has helped us on several occasions to find the right specialist for our various housing needs. We think the world of Faith, and would highly recommend her services and expertise to anyone looking to buy or sell in Fairfield County.

Purchase AND sale testimonials
Faith is a great agent. She helped us both buy and sell our homes. When it came to selling, Faith got the job done in the time she told us it would take, and for a price exactly in the range she told us to expect. As far as buying a home, Faith was relentless. She helped us tirelessly over the course of several years. When the right home finally became available, Faith made sure we were the first people to see it. We can honestly say we have "faith" in Faith and would not buy or sell with anyone else!

I am writing on behalf of Faith, without whom I would never be writing this from the new home we love so much. Faith showed us our home and we fell in love with it, and her! She impressed us so much with her enthusiasm, skill, and common sense that we decided to use her to sell our old home. She priced it right, she went the extra mile in getting it ready for broker “open houses”, and never gave up on the people who ended up buying the house. She is the consummate professional and a delightful person to work with every day. I have already told several friends that if they ever need to sell their homes—they've "gotta have Faith!"
Faith Schachne has been so much more than a broker for us. Our search to find a new home in Weston started in 2003. Faith spent almost a full two years showing me absolutely every listing that was comparable to my home and every listing that I wanted to see. She was totally supportive and tried to educate me at all times to my options. Finally in early 2005 we found the "perfect home." Faith was there to guide us through the entire process, including actually helping us pack! Moreover, as the closing date got closer, we needed to sell the home we were living in. Faith sold our home in three weeks. At every step along the way she went over and above what was expected. From making my bed, to staging my home for sale and even babysitting my then very young son while we met with our lawyer, Faith provided exceptional service. I cannot recommend her more highly!

I have worked with Faith a couple of times in the past - on both the sell side and the buy side. They were always very positive experiences. She is extremely diligent and incredibly responsive. She had incredible patience as we visited dozens of homes over long periods of time. We had started with other agents initially, but they weren't nearly as willing as Faith was in terms of "sticking it out". In the end, we found the right homes thanks to her efforts. She is a very patient real estate agent. She doesn't raise the standard for agents in Westport, she is the standard. She knows the Westport market well and was able to guide us in our decision process. We would highly recommend her to anyone buying or selling a home.
Faith was terrific to work with on the sale of our house. She gave us very good advice on staging the house, showing the house and negotiating the price after an offer was made. She did a great job of helping us answer questions and providing us with comments after showings. She is consistently prompt, always reliable and we value her judgement. A true pleasure to work with if you are considering putting up your home for sale!
Faith was exceptional during the process of selling our home. Her insight into the local market as well as her connections in the community allowed us to successfully sell our home. Her advice and feedback is invaluable. Faith truly goes above and beyond what is expected and deserves endless accolades for her efforts.
We highly recommend Faith. She is a consummate professional in every way, and we’re so grateful that we had the opportunity to work with her. Faith knows her business, guided us with her intelligence and expertise and held our hand every step of the way. She kept us calm throughout what can otherwise be an extremely stressful experience, and she successfully sold our house! We knew she was on our side, she demonstrated that consistently throughout. She always listened to us, and always gave thoughtful and practical feedback and advice. She went above and beyond, assisting us in both big ways and small. She is truly superb.
Faith is a down to earth, knowledgeable real estate agent in the Westport market . She wont try to "sell" you. She will give you all the data you need to make an informed decision, offer an opinion if asked, and leave you to make your decision . That opinion may be "stay away" as often as it is "this could be interesting." She will not tell you anything she does not know.
