Remember this as the exact moment when my two worlds collide - my real estate business and my love for food.
If you are new to Norwalk, or Fairfield County, you might be surprised with the quality of restaurants in this area. The amazing thing about the food here, is that you can find inexpensive, but high-quality food (and portions that amaze). So before you go any further in reading, please know that my priority is food quality and taste, with affordability, ambiance, etc being secondary. Also, there are undiscovered restaurants in the city that I have yet to frequent, so feel free to comment with suggestions. I have been to most of those that have been around for more than 6 months, but continue to try new things all the time!
Also, you can notice a lack of any establishments in South Norwalk (in my list) - this is unintentional, but I find the food there to be generally overpriced, and not worth the time to spend going there. Barcelona, which moved a few years ago would have been my exception. Also, with the quick turn around of restaurants down there, it's hard to keep up.
Note: I have been searching for my next great meal for many years, and Norwalk is just our starting point on this culinary journey together. I do recommend you take a look at my Yelp profile to see some of the amazing places I have eaten around the United States.
Here goes...in no particular order.
Choosing a Realtor to represent you is like interviewing a new employee for hire. It is just as important as when you hire someone to do work on your home, as you will be stuck with your decision for months and years to come. Hiring a plumber, you ask questions. Hiring a contractor, you ask questions. Why should the person you pay 5% of your(the) property's value not get the same treatment.
