A resident and active member of the Ridgefield community since 1990, Karla has in-depth knowledge of the area’s school systems, and various sports and community organizations of the towns she represents including Ridgefield, Redding, Wilton, Westport, New Canaan and Weston, as well as the exclusive waterfront communities along Candlewood Lake.
“We love this area so much that we chose to raise our son here,” says the mother of one son now in his twenties. “Working with families is by far one of my favorite things to do, whether it’s to find their starter home, their forever home, or something in between. There is truly something for everyone in this community!” Karla chooses to leverage her blog and social media platforms to showcase what a wonderful place Ridgefield is to live, from her recent blog post recommending winter break staycation ideas to “You Just Moved to Ridgefield with Toddlers…Now What?”
Karla currently serves on the Executive Board of the Ridgefield Boys and Girls Club and has also held positions on the Ridgefield PTA Executive Board.
