Any move may be fraught with pitfalls, yet Cora’s attention to detail, extensive provision of comparable information, and relentless effort has helped beyond measure. Cora’s deep knowledge, extra efforts, and sharp skills have fully informed and comforted us to the point of utilizing Halstead exclusively in Greenwich, CT.

We strongly recommend Cora as an exceptional property acquisition talent" - Pam A. & Chris D."Cora is, without a doubt, the best real estate agent that I have ever worked with. She is passionate, hard-working, organized, polite, honest and truly knows the local area and market. I thought moving from out of state would be a tough task, however Cora made it easy by sending multiple properties daily that encompassed all aspects of my wish list. She was more than accommodating with all my demands, showing me multiple properties on days that I flew in and bringing me to all the local sites. She has been my local resource for restaurants, parks, malls, beaches etc. Anytime I have a question, Cora is available, knowledgeable and extremely patient. She was able to find me my dream townhouse and I would thoroughly recommend her." - Brooke D."Simply put, Cora is amazing. She could not have been more helpful and willing to offer guidance the whole time we worked with her. She went above and beyond to help us get the house we wanted. Cora kept in touch to make sure we were aware of the process step by step, which was incredibly helpful as we were forced to do most of the process long distance. She fought for us and was not afraid to go to bat for us to get what we wanted. She helped us weigh the positives and negatives of each home to find the perfect fit for us. I cannot recommend her highly enough!" - Maxx K."Cora was amazing! As a first-time home-buyer, I had a lot on my "wish list" and a lot of questions about the entire process. Cora worked with me every step of the way. She always made herself available to take my call or meet me at a listing. She wasn't pushy and didn't get frustrated at my indecisiveness... she always put my needs and wants first. I'm so glad that I took this journey with Cora, I couldn't have asked for a better experience." - Audra N."The professionalism and assistance showed by Cora Lynch-O'Meara was incredible, she gained the trust of our company from day one and we knew we were in good hands throughout the process. She followed up on every little detail right to the end. If you are a buyer or seller I would highly recommend" - James O'K."Cora did a great job finding our family house in New Canaan. She is extremely dedicated, highly professional, nice and fun to work with. Cora was really impressive in understanding what we were looking for and balancing it wisely with what was out there in the market. Highly recommend!" - Rui L."Cora is the best. Her knowledge and expertise of the area made it easy for me to find the perfect property. Then once paperwork was flying I never had to worry about missing a date because she was always on top of it. She then found a great renter for the property and helped with all aspects of that transaction as well. I would highly recommend her for all your real estate needs buying/selling or rental. Your real estate transaction will be smooth and easy with Cora on your side.” - Suzi G."Cora was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was respectful of our budget and found us a house that had everything we asked for. Very friendly, great at negotiating and very organized and responsive. I highly recommend working with her." - Catalina B."I couldn’t say enough about Cora, and how wonderful she is! Being a first-time home owner can be stressful and confusing. Cora helped make the process smooth, and easy. She is not only kind, personable and easy to communicate with but she is also extremely knowledgeable. I HIGHLY recommend using her and will be using her again in the future." - Gabrielle McG."We really appreciate all of your support through this home buying process. Your help and advice was invaluable. We've worked with a few realtors in the past and we can say with honesty that you are one of the best we've ever worked with. We enjoyed getting to know you and meeting you. Your enthusiasm and diligence really made the difference. We hope to keep in touch and wish you all the best in your future endeavors. Thank you." - Steve & Ping"Cora, thank you so much! You made the entire purchase process so simple and easy. These things are generally a very stressful process and you just made the whole thing so enjoyable. Really appreciate the time you spent with us (especially going to visit 10 places the first day we met you!). I'm just absolutely thrilled with this whole purchase and I know it couldn't have happened without you. Thank you again! Also, LOVE the gift you gave. It will go perfectly in the new place. Just another example of how awesome you are!" – Lisa Z."Cora went above and beyond what was expected of her as our Real Estate Agent. She is knowledgeable about the market and the process needed to buy a house. Cora was always available by phone, email and text (even through the holidays and when she was away on vacation!). My husband and I were first time home buyers and both not from Connecticut where we were looking to purchase our home. She helped us navigate the Fairfield County market with ease. Not being from the area, we used all of Cora’s recommendations for contractors, mortgage broker, and lawyer and we could not be happier. Not only is Cora an amazing and hard working person, those that she associates with professionally are just as hard working and professional. We ended up with a construction loan, which was a difficult loan to complete with all the paperwork- and without Cora I do not think we would have been able to get all of our contractors and paperwork in line for such a short-close. She not only is an amazing Real Estate Agent, she was a pleasure to spend our weekends looking at houses with. We could not recommend Cora enough to anyone looking for a home." - Andrew and Deirdre F.
