Though it may be weeks or months before life returns to normal, the real estate industry is already adjusting to some new realities, according to Mary Connolly Flynn, a Realtor with the Greenwich office of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices, New England Properties.

“We’re using more videos and technology, but less in-person contact,” she explained. “For our brokerage, open houses have been canceled.” Still, she remains optimistic about the market’s viability and future.

“We have international sensibilities, excellent schools, top-level sports programs and unsurpassed physical beauty,” Connolly Flynn described Greenwich’s proposition. “We also have surprisingly low taxes, amazing public parks, world-class shopping and restaurants, and extremely talented and interesting locals. From rural farms to estates, multimillion-dollar townhouses to cottages, there’s something here for everyone.”

A graduate of the College of Holy Cross, Connolly Flynn has degrees in mathematics and accounting. Spotting trends, smart home valuations, and looking for properties that will offer return on investments are her core skills.

“Pricing decisions have always fascinated me,” she said. “Greenwich is a place where real estate values hold up better than most investments, with dips and jumps in the market, and figuring out where properties fall into that mix is perhaps the most valuable service I can offer to my clients.”

Prior to her career in real estate, Connolly Flynn worked in travel. She held positions at a travel agency, on Wall Street, and with Japan Air Lines. She was a tour guide to the Peoples Republic of China, and also managed travel for employees of the United States Federal government.

Locally, she is a Representative Town Meeting (RTM) member, has chaired the magazine drive for Eastern Middle School, and is a volunteer at the Greenwich Hospital gift shop. She’s a member of the Roxbury Club. Flynn and her family have lived in Greenwich for nearly 24 years.
