Simply stated, Kiara exceeded our expectations and we credit her with an unbelievably smooth and successful transaction.
Camille & Mark | East Lyme, CT
We have bought and sold many homes over the years, but we have never worked with an agent as knowledgeable and personable as Kiara Rusconi. Kiara is an excellent communicator who truly understands the real estate business. She is a consummate professional on all levels. Kiara will go the extra mile to stage and market your home and she will carefully guide you through all the necessary steps to sell it quickly.She is enthusiastic, positive, and an absolute pleasure to work with.
Bonnie & Doug | South Windsor, CT
I have nothing but positive things too say about our experience with Kiara. During our first conversation she told me that no one works harder than she does. She definately lived up to that statement! Kiara represented us on both the sale of our house and the purchase of our new home. She was always available, responsive, and professional. I had every confidence in the way we would be represented in dealing with our buyers, sellers, and other professionals during negotiations and at all points of the buying and selling process. She made what can be a complicated and difficult process easy. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Kiara to anyone!
Herry & Matthew Herzog | Glastonbury, CT
Kiara is the ultimate package in more ways than just buying or selling a home. She is the definition of humble and kind; someone you want to represent you or your family to other professionals, buyers/sellers, realtors, etc. Kiara went above and beyond to find our family the perfect home, and trust me it was NOT easy…From early mornings, to late nights, to last minute, multiple offers, inspections, you name it, we made it to the finish line and you bet she was right there with us. Kiara also listed our previous home and everything was done to perfection. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a more gorgeous, prestigious and perfect sale ad to represent any home or property than how she did ours. Her entire team, photographer to stager and attorney to inspector are all equally as impressive. We would never choose anyone else in real estate other than Kiara Rusconi and her incredible team. I would (and have) recommend Kiara to anyone wanting to buy or sell a home, or even for professional advice (she gives excellent advice). Thank you again so much! #teamkiararusconirealestate

Kiara did the impossible, she sold our home! What was a dream lake home for many years became a burden as our kids and our co-owners kids grew up and went on to have different interests. We listed the home several times over the past 5 years with no reasonable offers being generated and with us continuing to make payments on the home to include upkeep. From day 1 Kiara’s energy and enthusiasm was refreshing. She listened to us and then brough her selling system to bear on our home. The work started before the home was officially listed on the MLS. Her creativity with the home staging, the professional pictures, the computer generated “furnishing” and the showing package were world class. At our first open house, her marketing and professional collateral generated more visits in 1 day than we had in total the previous 5 years of multiple listings. From her efforts Kiara was able to sell our home at a higher offer than anyone previously had made and she did it in record time. As an owner & manager of commercial real estate I can honestly say that I have never had a real estate professional take so much care and interest in her clients from day one through closing. If you are lucky enough to have Kiara as your real estate agent, you can be assured of getting the best service, most engaged realtor and best price for your home.
Patty & David Schmid | Ellington, CT
This was the first time we have used a realtor in the USA and what an absolutely superb experience. Kiara was outstanding throughout the exercise. She was highly professional, attentive to our needs, proactive and went way beyond our expectations. We would certainly highly recommend her to anyone selling a house.
Janet & Michael | East Lyme, CT
Kiara has endless energy, innovation, and attention to detail in her approach to selling and buying a home. We worked with her on the sale of our home and the purchase of a new one. She walked us through every step and was in constant contact throughout the entire process. We were extremely pleased with our sale price. When finding a new home, she was timely in getting us to see properties, making competitive offers, and ultimately sealed the deal. We would highly recommend anyone thinking of buying or selling a home to consult with Kiara. We plan to work with her again in the future. We often said "thank you" in this process, but truly, thank you again for helping us surpass our goals and vision for our future.
Caitlin & Joe | Sherman, CT
I was instantly attracted to Kiara's enthusiasm and positive personality. Kiara was approachable and accessible throughout preparing our home for market and at every touch through close. Our home had been on the market for more than 2 years with other agents and Kiara brought us an offer just 24 days after listing. I really feel that she went above and beyond what any other Realtor had done in their efforts to get our home sold. I would not hesitate to recommend her to family and friends.
Robyn & Mark F. | Deep River, CT
My wife and I have sold and purchased homes with Kiara in the past few years. Most recently, I began searching for rental properties to purchase, which was an entirely new venture for me. With Kiara's extensive knowledge, top-notch professionalism, diverse networking, and preemptive thinking, I felt confident in the process start to finish. We were one step ahead of everyone and we ended up negotiating a purchase with multiple properties. I highly recommend Kiara! There should be no question on who you want your Realtor to be for all your buying, selling, and rental transactions.
Greyski Enterprises, LLC
Kiara is the consummate Realtor. Our new home illuminates our gratitude and Kiara's professionalism. Most important, Kiara is a treaure and has become a dear friend. We were looking for a home for over a year. Sadly, our agent was not able to communicate our perspective and we parted ways. Then we spoke with Kiara! She made our forever home a reality. She listened to what we wanted in a home with careful professionalism and, more importantly, her heart. She heard our hopes and became the guardian of our family's future. Our successful closing was a concern of efforts that Kiara coordinated with the Seller. We continue to speak with Kiara and every conversation includes a promise that she will always be there for us and she is. We are so grateful to call her our friend and the keeper of dreams come true!
Ellen. & Bill O. | Killingworth, CT
We felt like we won the lottery to have Kiara Rusconi on our team. From our first introduction, to the day of the closing, Kiara was attentive, professional and kind. While our house was less than grand, Ms. Rusconi handled every detail with such grace. Thank you, Kiara, for making a difficult and emotional situation into a seamless transaction.
Sally M. | Quaker Hill, CT
Kiara Rusconi was amazing! She was energetic, knowledgeable, and a true pleasure to work with. She was always available to answer my phone calls, texts, and emails in a timely manner. Her knowledge of real estate laws and guidelines was spot on. And her professionalism was evident as she interacted with other Realtors, lawyers, inspectors, and lenders. I would highly recommend Kiara to anyone buying or selling a home in Connecticut.
Gwenn & Todd | Middletown, CT
When you're first buying a home, it's beneficial to have someone who can really help guide and direct you through the monumental process...Kiara parted the Red Sea for us. Not only is she intelligent, educated, and has the tenacity of a lioness, but she is funny, kind, and compassionate. She's the best friend you just met. Oh, and did I mention, I'm talking about a Realtor here?! The moment we stumbled, as first time home buyers normally do, into an open house, we were genuinely welcomed. This was the main reason why we pushed all other would be agents aside and went with her. The rest is history. Kiara helped us find our first house, a memory that is not easily forgotten, and one that is only that much sweeter with her being by our side. Thank you Kiara!
Gintare & Mat | Glastonbury, CT
During my sale process I have already referred Kiara to 4 individuals. She goes far beyond the norm of professionalsim and things you should expect of a Realtor. When I began interviewing agents, I asked her what she would do differently than I had already done. She was the only Realtor who could answer this with a specific plan besides simply recommending to drop the price. Each person engages in the sale of their home with different goals. She truly was able to understand mine and adjust the marketing plan accordingly.
Janelle S. | East Lyme, CT
Working with Kiara was an absolute seemless experience. From day one, she was open and willing to show us any house that came up in our search in a quick manner. Her flexible and accommodating schedule allowed for us to find our dream forever home. It's important to have a knowledgeable real estate agent, and Kiara was just that. Buying our first home was a nerve-wracking experience so trust in our agent was a must. Kiara walked us through concepts that were not familar with, had patience in our learnings and, most importantly, helped us to think and buy logically. There was no doubt in our mind during the process that Kiara only had our best interests in mind and this meant the world to us. We lucked out and would recommend Kiara in a heartbeat to anyone looking to buy or sell their home.
Jamie & Scott | Glastonbury, CT
Choosing Kiara as our real estate agent was the best decision! Having had difficulties with purchasing and selling a home in the past we were very apprehensive with begining the process once again. Kiara made our experience completely different this time and we can not recommend her enough! She was a true pleasure to work with at every step of the process. She is professional while still connecting with your family and home on a personal level as well. She made it so we were able to go from getting our home ready to sell to having a contract signed in just about 2 weeks, all while having the pressures of Covid-19 and two young children to consider. Kiara also went above and beyond with negotiations in purchasing our new home. She never left any questions unanswered and was quick to respond to any and all concerns we had along the way. Kiara is so knowledgeable that we were able to readily discuss any issues that arose and make informed decisions that were in our best interest. She truly puts her heart into selling your home and has the expertise, passion, and diligence to make the process start to finish as stress free as possible. She exceeded our expectations and we would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone we know!
Korey & Curtis G. | Glastonbury, CT
Kiara found our dream home that checked all the boxes. She worked diligently to help us close early and put our minds at ease during a very uncertain time. She made herself readily available and checkin in routinely to make sure everything was on track. As a first time home buyer, this was very much appreciated. Her level of professionalism and attention to detail is unmatched. It was a pleasure working with her and I woul recommend her to anyone in the market looking for their dream home.
Julie S. | Newington, CT
Kiara was recommended by my best friend after she sold their home and that of their daughter's. Hiring her to sell our home was the best decision we could have ever made. She helped us prepare the house for market by investing professional staging services and expert photography. Kiara's open house was a great success and we had several offers to choose from after just a couple of days after listing. After the home inspection, she was very resourceful in finding reasonanably priced professionals to do the work that we needed to close on the house. She was always in communication with us. Her attention to detail was appreciated and her positive spirit and energy helped us through the process. She was always with us at every step right through closing. Kiara is the ultimate Realtor who really cares about her clients and will do anything for them.
Marilyn & Klaus S. | Cromwell, CT
Kiara was amazing when it came to assisting us with our home search. Not only was she knowledgeable when it came to the real estate market, she had our best interest in mind. She never had a problem telling us when to walk away and handled the negotiations like a true veteran. Our attorney even made the statement that she is one of the best agents he’s ever worked with in his 30 years in real estate. There are real estate agents, and then there is Kiara - she is in a league of her own!
