Per­son­al­iz­ing ev­ery home sale

Connecticut Post (Sunday) - - Real Estate - Dwight St. John

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.
