Hi, I’m Stephanie Koutikas, an agent with Better Homes & Gardens Real Estate. I use my real estate background plus 20 years of marketing, branding, business and sales experience to help buyers, sellers and investors realize their dreams and property’s potential.
Committed to Exceeding Expectations
With a passion for the coastal living market and beyond, I’m committed to helping those along Connecticut’s seaboard fulfill all their real estate sales, purchase and rental needs. As a real estate agent with a Master’s in Marketing and Management and decades of promotional experience under my belt, I provide my clients with the customized strategies and edge they need to be successful in today’s competitive market. My goal is simple: to make your home buying or home selling dreams come true by effectively guiding you through the journey.
Locally Known, Globally Connected.
Born in Montreuil, France of Portuguese parents, I emigrated to the United States in 1987 with my family and settled in Connecticut, where I have remained rooted ever since. I was raised in Fairfield County and have lived in Milford for the last 12 years, which has afforded me extensive knowledge of what it’s like to live in the area. As a result of my diverse background, I’m trilingual in Portuguese, French and English, as well as proficient in Spanish. Being fluent in so many languages has enabled me to build strong social and business connections locally and around the world.
As the daughter of a builder, I’ve been involved in real estate since a young age. But before I embarked on a career in the field, I spent two decades leading the branding and marketing initiatives of a global 95-year-old beauty industry company. As a high-level executive, I oversaw the development and implementation of new product lines, as well as managed the company’s online presence, public relations, influencer/artist relations, trade shows, special events, education and creative development. Leveraging the power of digital and social media, I developed strategies that successfully rebranded the company and garnered recognition for our initiatives. I use this vast digital experience to creatively leverage social media and other marketing channels to my client’s advantage when selling their homes and negotiating offers.
Strong Ties to the Community
I feel truly blessed to live in the Milford area. With my husband, I’m the proud owner of one of Milford’s landmark destinations: The Greek Spot Cafe. Our cafe is situated in the heart of the residential neighborhood in which we live with access to Connecticut’s beautiful and exclusive destinations of Silver Sands Beach and Charles Island. And being the mother of three young sons, who are very involved in local sports and other activities, my feelings about this community have only grown stronger. I’m so grateful for how the cafe and our family activities have enabled us to build strong connections with both locals and vacationers alike with whom I share my passion for living near the water.
As a true beach lover, when I’m not helping my clients or watching my sons do their thing, you’re likely to find me paddle boarding along the Connecticut shoreline or relaxing in the sand with family and friends – I love to cook and entertain – or perhaps engrossed in my other loves of interior design and international travel!
