About Rachel

Rachel Walsh is a dedicated and driven New Canaan realtor who not only has decades of real estate experience but an extensive background in design, business, and home-staging. Her desire to become a realtor stems from a pure desire to help people and ensure they receive her undivided attention, focus, and expertise.

In 1995, Rachel had an unsatisfactory experience with the hired agent to help her find a new home. Feeling as if the agent was only doing the bare minimum, she vowed to become a realtor herself and ensure that her approach was 100% client-focused—a value that has only strengthened over time. Her clients receive a concierge-level degree of service, and Rachel prides herself on being available to them 24/7.

She enjoys going the extra mile for each client and consistently exceeding their expectations. As someone who has visited hundreds of home inspections and remodeled countless homes, Rachel has a natural insight for discerning a home’s resale value, curb appeal, quality, design, and more. With her input and in-depth knowledge of the local and area market, buyers will be privy to the market’s best listings when it comes to searching for their new home.

When working with sellers, Rachel looks forward to blowing them away when they see what she and Compass are willing to offer to sell their home. Even when the deal is all said and done, Rachel often keeps in touch with her clients for years afterward to provide home and community assistance.

Apart from her extensive real estate pedigree, Rachel is a savvy business professional who was previously in charge of VIP services at two high-end Central Park hotels. Her varied background gives her a unique perspective in the field. It has molded her into a focused intellectual who consistently stays ahead of the latest design, technology, and social media trends.

Given her experience working with VIP clients, Rachel primarily assists high-end buyers and sellers looking into the local luxury market within New Canaan, Darien, Rowayton, and several surrounding communities. She happily covers all price ranges but excels when tackling challenging homes where her design and staging abilities can truly shine.

Rachel’s dedication to helping others extends far beyond her work life. She is a fierce dog lover who regularly works with families who want to adopt rescue pets by paying their adoption and neutering fees. She is also a member of the “New” New Canaan Library Committee. She is currently writing a semi-autobiographical real estate book to help new agents learn the ropes!
