My Bio

Personal Background

Growing up in Westport, I attended the Westport schools, and graduated from Staples. I am also the daughter of a teacher who taught for 20+ years in Westport. As a result, I can speak very highly of the Westport school system. I currently reside in Weston with my husband and 2 children. We’ve lived in Weston for over 11 years and I was thrilled with the education that my children received in the Weston schools. I am actively involved in the community, and can be a great resource for anyone new moving into the area. I can also empathize with people who are relocating, as in the past 16 years I have moved with my family from Boston to Chicago, and back to the New York area. While in the Boston area, I worked as a real estate agent for Hingham Real Estate, and collectively have 13 years in real estate sales.

When not selling real estate, you can usually find me tap dancing, walking my rescue dog Bernie, enjoying an evening at Compo Beach, or playing softball in Weston on the women's softball team that I manage.

Testimonials

"Having relocated from Hong Kong, we had a number of issues around mortgaging, temporary accommodation, utilities, visas (pretty much everything)! Kathleen was a great problem solver and went out of her way to make our lives easier - she even had our furniture moved into our short term apartment and stocked the fridge, meeting us late in the evening on our arrival in the US. We couldn't be more appreciative of her help and never expected this level of service from a Realtor."-B&L S, Westport

“We recently purchased a home in Weston and wanted to share with you how invaluable Kathleen O’Connell has been throughout our entire real estate experience. Kathleen has been professional, dedicated, knowledgeable, and thorough from the moment we started looking for a new home, and is still proving her value even after we have closed! We were most impressed with the way that Kathleen anticipated our needs and went the extra mile on multiple occasions. She answered all of our questions and checked town records when necessary when issues were not spelled out completely. She was also a skillful negotiator who protected our interests through every step of the process. She is a true asset!” -J&S C, Weston

"Kathleen was absolutely amazing, extremely professional, and super nice - the best we have ever met!" - ML, Westport

"Thank you, Kathleen! Our nickname for you is 'ABCD O'Connell', because you go 'Above and Beyond the Call of Duty'". - K&D T, Weston

"Kathleen is an amazing agent but also an amazing person. For us, her integrity was essential. We ultimately had to put a lot of trust in her and we are glad that we did. She made a difficult process very palatable. Market seemed weird and we had considered abandoning our search but she was so knowledgeable, grounded, creative and willing to go to bat for us (yet still able to reel us in as necessary) that it worked out well." - H&H M, Weston
