Wilton Agent Thrives on Creativity

When it comes to figuring out the best way to market a listing, Stephanie Smith, a real estate agent with Prudential in Wilton, is full of creative ideas. “There’s a lovely house on the market that needs more traffic,” she says, “ So I’m hoping to set up a designer symposium and bring in new products, like a gallery opening.”

Being creative is nothing new for Stephanie. She’s already reinvented herself several times and seems to revel in the process. A history major, Stephanie thought law school might be fun but a stint as a paralegal changed her mind. Her minor in art history led her to design, and she got a job at Knoll , the modern furniture company, as an assistant to Charles Gwathmey , a leading American architect. Next stop – a spell in a commercial interior design firm liaising with the architects.

Along the way came three children, Electra, Pete and Kit, and Stephanie threw herself into the schools working as an early intervention aide in Wilton. “It was an incredible experience,” she says, “the staff are top-quality.” As the kids grew up and left home (Electra was married last year), Stephanie started planning her next move.

“I’ve always been interested in real estate,” she says, which is hardly surprising given the number of times the family has moved over the years. “I really enjoy working in a group, sharing ideas and methods,” she adds, “and I’m a big believer in education, keeping up with the latest trends.” Stephanie also keeps up with the inventory of houses for sale. “A good broker goes to all the open houses,” she points out.

In case you think Stephanie is all work and no fun, she’s recently found a a new passion – photography. “It’s not messy, like painting,” she adds.
