Personalizing every home sale
Genuine, honest to a fault and a deep desire to making his customers happy are the traits Dwight St. John values most.
“I care about my customers and I want to make them happy,” St. John says.
St. John grew up in the real estate business, entering the family’s residential and commercial building business right out of high school. They built many subdivisions in Norwalk as well as modular homes and commercial buildings. At the same time, his father also owned a real estate brokerage and many rental properties, where St. John gained years of experience in the property management business.
St. John loves what he does and derives great pleasure from serving his clients.
“I like going to work every day,” he explains. “Working long hours and long weeks actually doesn’t seem long at all if you enjoy doing what you do.”
He has as affinity for working with buyers and says he loves to see the looks on their faces when buyers walk into a house and feel like that could be their next home.
“That excitement is contagious,” says St. John, who enjoys the connections he is able to make with his clients.
“Putting a first time home buyer in their home, then being invited back a year later for their daughter‘ s birthday party. That’s pretty nice,” he states. And with his building background, he has the expertise to help house flippers find the right home to remodel and re- sell.
St. John is a lifelong resident of Norwalk. In fact, the St. Johns have been in Norwalk since 1631 and are one of the town’s founding families. St. John jokes that he knows almost everyone in town, ( or at least it seems that way). Naturally he focuses his business on Norwalk and its neighborhoods of Rowayton, Cranberry and Silvermine.
In addition to real estate, St. John spent 20 years as a yacht captain. His yachting background enables him to specialize in waterfront homes with deep- water docks, as he has extensive knowledge in the permitting process for docks and sea walls.
