What We Love

February 14 was Valentine’s Day. But here at KMS Partners, we’re still celebrating. All month long, we think about the things we love. For example:

Laurie Morris I love… My healthy husband, successful adult “kids” and adorable grandchildren A country that may not be perfect – but is still my favorite place to be The change of seasons – Connecticut is so beautiful! Downshifting through Weston’s winding roads Golf on a summer morning, with only the deer to watch my shots Clients who become part of the family – nothing is better Friends who will drop everything, and lend a hand Life!

Karen Scott I love… Decadent chocolate and robust red wine Walks at Compo Beach, and strolls along my 18-hole golf course Driving along Beachside Avenue, with the convertible top down My boys, and their sense of adventure and travel – encouraging me to join them along the way My fabulous sisters, and their wonderful families Huge hugs to my dad for raising four girls, and fond memories of Mom teaching us the importance of family Laughter Dinners with friends The Cubs winning the World Series (in my lifetime!) Calling Westport home – it really is an amazing town Everything KMS: my partners, my clients, my colleagues, my manager – thanks for sharing the love with me!

David Weber I love… My family (of course!) Being part of the best team in New England Getting up every morning, feeling enthusiastic about my work and what the day will bring The challenges of any real estate transaction, and finding solutions to them The trust of my clients My dog Strong coffee All the amenities this area offers: open spaces, the beaches, Devil’s Den, Westport Country Playhouse, Trader Joe’s and great restaurants! Live music at the Levitt Pavilion, Ridgefield Playhouse and Fairfield Theatre Company The camaraderie of the Weston Kiwanis Club and Weston Historical Society Fairfield County wildlife, and watching the birds at the feeder in my yard The four seasons

Mary Ellen Gallagher I love… The 3 major food groups: wine, cheese and dark chocolate Cooking, especially at Thanksgiving (a huge production, complete with two dozen-plus family and friends every year) Learning everything about wine – traveling to vineyards, studying techniques, enjoying it with food Lake Winnepesaukee, New Hampshire: My happy place, where I spent childhood summers with my extended family Learning to navigate the waters of Long Island Sound – and seeing our beautiful Connecticut coastline by boat Watching the sun set while barbecuing with friends at Compo Beach Exercising outdoors in all kinds of weather Seeing how many stamps I can accumulate in my passport Everything Swiss Spending time with family and friends Seeing my children grow up and become their unique selves – and being able to ski, travel and hang with them (as much as possible!) My husband of 31+ years Helping newcomers find a home and settle here in Fairfield County My wonderful, caring, smart KMS Partners

Susan Seath I love… Getting cozy on the couch with my daughters, bingeing on our favorite Netflix series Reading a book under an umbrella on Sasco Beach, on a warm, sunny summer day Taking walks with friends at Compo Beach, through Southport Harbor, and out to the lighthouse at Fairfield Beach Entertaining friends and family in my home -- I love my house, and enjoy sharing it with others The Pantry (my go-to when I don’t feel like cooking) Strolling through downtown Fairfield My clients -- I have been blessed to work with wonderful people, many of whom have become close friends Being in sync with my KMS Partners – I feel so lucky to work with people I really care about Life -- I feel so lucky to be alive, and living in Fairfield County!

Kim Harizman I love… Cozy nights by the fire with my boys, the smell of food on the stove, and a glass of red wine Lazy snow days at home when school is canceled Snowshoeing at Longshore after a big storm Walking my dog at Compo Beach, and watching him play in the sand Each different season (they keep life interesting!) Driving around Westport on a sunny day, feeling thankful we live in such a beautiful town Getting to the closing table with a client, and feeling the joy as they buy their first home The always exciting world of real estate, and my relationships with clients Feeling the love during February, know that spring (and tennis season) is right around the corner!
