What my clients are saying  

When my fiancée and I made the decision to purchase our first home, we had nothing and we had no one. We were blind, yet we entered the fog. On our very first viewing, we met Robin, who was the agent for said property. After only ten minutes, we felt a bond happening and asked if she'd be able to show us more properties. She agreed and a few properties later, we found our dream home. Most people end the relationship with their realtor after closing but it's different with Robin. We now consider her a friend, and look forward to spending time with her at our new home. For us, it's Robin Helburn and there's no one else. My fiancée and I have rented condos and houses so we've dealt with a realtors. Robin Helburn is a gem. No pressure, no gimmicks. Only outstanding performance and her warm, caring personality. If you're currently in the market for real estate in the near future, do yourself a huge favor and hire Robin Helburn - watch great things unfold. You'll be happy you did...

driana brought an incredible amount of experience and professionalism to our home buying experience. She took the time to listen to what we were looking for in a house and set up appointments accordingly. She always responded to our questions promptly and went the extra mile in guiding us throughout the entire process. We are extremely happy with the home we purchased with her assistance and we would highly recommend her to anyone else in the market for a new home

I am so lucky to have Adriana as my agent! I worked with one agent for a couple weeks but she wasn't responsive so I tried to find another one. I saw Adriana has good reviews on Zillow so tried to call her. She's so nice and knowledgeable about the Stamford market. So I decided to work with her on my purchase. After 5 months of searching, viewing at least 50 properties altogether I picked a condo in downtown Stamford. With Adriana's help my whole buying experience was so smooth. Adriana and I become good friends now. I strongly recommend Adriana as a real estate agent.

I have been in the Real Estate business since 1996 and contacted Adriana to assist in the sale of my father's house in CT. This was after my father had tried a few other agents on his own and the house sat for a few years. Adriana assessed the property and recommended some changes and updates. Where she separated herself from other agents is that she was personally involved in scheduling and performing these updates. Although I live out of state, I received constant progress reports. The house then sold quickly with some skillful negotiation from Adriana. I have since worked with Adriana with an investment sale in CT and was again impressed with her quick response and knowledge of the market. Our business relationship is not over as we are working together on another property, so although I highly recommend her, please do not all call her at once as she is my secret real estate weapon :)

Adrianna Morrell sold our home this past year and we can honestly say she is without a doubt the best selling agent we have ever had. We have sold many homes over the years with different agents so this certainly says a lot about her skills. Adrianna is an exceptional agent as she is professional, personable, and determined. One of the qualities about Adriana that we personally valued the most was her ability to communicate promptly and effectively with us as well as with the buyer’s agents/potential buyers. For instance, as Adrianna negotiated our deal, she made all parties feel comfortable and eager to complete the deal. As a result, our closing was the most painless and cordial one we ever had. We would certainly use Adrianna as our real estate agent in the future and we would also highly recommend her to anyone who needs a competent, energetic, and dedicated real estate agent to sell or buy his or her home.

Adriana was an excellent guide for us for our first home buying experience. My husband and I had been looking in 3 different states for about 2 years prior to meeting Adriana, and by that time we had felt that maybe what we wanted just wasn't out there in our price range and desired commuting distance. We felt that other realtors we had worked with just didn't understand what we were ultimately looking for. It was important to us to find that "fit" where we felt like we could put down roots in a new community, and make a home. Adriana was the one who assured us that we were on the right path and that we would love living in the town we chose, and would be able to fix up what was to become our new home. She guided us every step of the way and made us feel comfortable in our decision as well as negotiations with the seller. We feel that we were able to make a good deal on a vintage house that needs some TLC, but already feels like the home we've been looking for all these years

Adriana Morrell is a force of nature. I told her I needed to sell my townhouse quickly, and she sold it within 30 days of listing at asking price, which was $100k more than I’d paid for it two years earlier. She is straightforward, honest, and delivers results. Take it from an old Infantry Officer . . .Adriana will get the property sold, or find you what you want to buy. This woman doesn’t sleep, and is 100% focused on her clients!
