High­est priced list­ings of the week

New Haven Register (Sunday) (New Haven, CT) - - REAL ESTATE -

Afourth gen­er­a­tion Real­tor, real es­tate has al­ways been part of Marc Seigel’s life. “I knew in high school I wanted to join the fam­ily busi­ness. Af­ter I grad­u­ated, I got my li­cense, then went to col­lege and ma­jored in fi­nance be­cause I felt it would be use­ful in the pro­fes­sion,” he said. “Dur­ing the sum­mers, I worked in the fam­ily firm to gain the ex­pe­ri­ence I would need af­ter grad­u­a­tion.”

Thirty one years later, he con­tin­ues to keep it in the fam­ily, as he is part­ners in the busi­ness with his sis­ter, Lau­ren Seigel-Gross.

One of Seigel’s dis­tin­guish­ing char­ac­ter­is­tics is his com­mit­ment to his busi­ness at­tire, which gives him the proper mind­set to tackle the day.

“I nor­mally wear a suit to work, even in 90-de­gree sum­mer heat,” he said. “I feel that you need to dress like the pro­fes­sional you’d like to be.”

Seigel en­joys mak­ing peo­ple laugh but when it comes to his clients, he is very se­ri­ous about the real es­tate process.

“I don’t nec­es­sar­ily ‘like’ all the houses that my clients do,” he said. “If they fall in love with a home that may have short­com­ings, I make it a point to in­ter­ject my opin­ion. They need to know that while they may like it, a fu­ture buyer may not. They ap­pre­ci­ate the fact that I’m not just in it for the sale. I re­ally want them to make an in­formed de­ci­sion.”

When it comes to mar­ket­ing, Seigel stresses “It’s all in the de­tails.” He makes it his pri­or­ity to see that his list­ings are priced and po­si­tioned com­pet­i­tively. He

kw.com is also par­tic­u­lar about photography and stag­ing, mak­ing sure the pho­tos look ex­actly like the house, so po­ten­tial buyers never feel like they are walk­ing into a dif­fer­ent home.

To Seigel, the most re­ward­ing part of his ca­reer is be­ing able to make a pos­i­tive im­pact on his clients’ lives.

“Many real es­tate trans­ac­tions are emo­tional. So, when I see sit­u­a­tion I know is painful but nec­es­sary, it makes me smile to know that af­ter the trans­ac­tion, many of our clients have said we changed their lives in a pos­i­tive way.”
