Your Dream, My Mission!
You have been thinking about your dream home – a home that is better suited to your current needs. You are thinking NOW – moving to a bigger home, or you are downsizing, or move closer to the beach, or are just ready to move. But wait! First, you must sell your current home and you have so many questions. How long will it take? How much is it worth? How do I pick a new neighborhood and deal with the whole process?
Easy – Merry Hampton is your Westport neighborhood specialist. First, she makes selling your current home an exceptionally smooth experience. Serving the Westport and the surrounding towns for 15+ years, she knows the area and what it takes to get a home sold. She works with a team of marketing experts (including staging, photography, property websites, all social media platforms) to make sure your house looks fabulous, is ready to attract the right buyers, resulting in getting you the best price for your current house on your terms.
Then, you and Merry get busy –
- Picking the right neighborhood (Merry believes that choosing your neighborhood is just as important as the house),
- Choosing a new home that you love and meets your needs.
- Applying for a mortgage, hiring an attorney, conducting inspections, closings, etc, etc, etc.
What does that mean to you in the end? Your old home is sold for a great price and your new home is everything you ever dreamed of. All with Merry’s guidance and support. Best of all, you sigh with pleasure every time you walk through the door of your new DREAM home!
Here is Merry’s story in her own words –
I grew up in a small town on the coast of Massachusetts – Duxbury – known for its New England beauty and beach. Duxbury’s “big beach” was everything to me…smelling the salt air, walking endlessly on the soft sand, soaking up the summer sun, and riding the waves. Somewhat of a tomboy, I played team sports throughout high school providing a lifelong foundation of cooperation, positive attitude, and enthusiastic team spirit.
I graduated from college with a psychology degree and from graduate school with an MBA with a marketing concentration. I thoroughly enjoyed marketing consumer packaged goods like Toll House Morsels and Jose Cuervo Tequila. But, after 23 years in brand management, I said goodbye to corporate life and said hello to real estate. Where did this love for real estate come from? My Dad! He used to say, “There is only so much land on this earth, Merry!” He loved owning land and instilled that passion in me. There is nothing more gratifying to me than to find clients their “happy house” to build wonderful memories.
Fairfield County, Connecticut has been my home for almost 25 years, having resided in Rowayton and Westport. Currently, I live in Weston with my husband and my beloved Golden Retriever, Morgan.

From Merry’s Clients
Sale & purchase
Hiring Merry to represent us on both the sale and purchase of our new home was one of the best decisions we could have made. Merry has incredible patience and amazing listening skills. She took the time to really get to know us, to understand our wishes, limitations, and needs for both the sale of our old home and the purchase of our new home. She was straightforward with us at every turn, never sugar-coating the realities of accomplishing our real estate goals in the midst of an unpredictable and difficult economy.
We always felt that we knew what to expect throughout this process and that Merry was on top of all the moving pieces from start to finish. We are extraordinarily grateful for Merry’s efforts on our behalf. Thanks to her, we were able to purchase our dream home.
– Jaimie and Brian
thankful for her depth of knowledge
My wife and I wanted to express our satisfaction and gratitude for the work that Merry did finding our new home. She was referred to us by a mutual friend and we could not have been happier. She provided us with an abundance of valuable materials on the various towns we were researching and was extremely flexible and diligent getting us out to see properties right away given our tight timeline. As with many transactions we encountered our share of bumps along the road, but Merry worked with us around the clock to resolve them and move the process forward, we are truly thankful for her depth of knowledge and level of professionalism throughout the process.
She is always ready to help…
Merry made the process of buying our first home so easy! She is extremely knowledgeable about her area and gave us great advice on neighborhoods. She took her time to pick out great listings, showed us many houses and was available whenever we needed her. She listened to what we wanted and was able to help us find those things while staying on budget. She also was able to provide us with all of the information we needed on mortgages and taxes and was able to recommend great professionals to assist us with the process. I highly recommend working with Merry!
