Why Small Businesses Matter in Westport: Amy Desel, Compass Real Estate

Why Small Businesses Matter

Shop small, do big things for your community

Why Small Businesses Matter puts a spotlight on the local merchants who donate their time, talent, goods, and services for the betterment of our community. The shop local movement spreads virally as local businesses who are “tagged” have the opportunity to share their story!

Four questions with Amy Desel, Compass Real Estate.

Why did you start your business?

I started my business ten years ago due to my love of Fairfield County and a strong desire to pursue a profession that would allow me to work directly with people!

What is your best-selling product/service?

The best service I can offer my clients is the hands-on and personal service they deserve. Buying and selling real estate is one of the most important decisions in someone's life and while it can be extremely fun, it can also be very stressful, so I work very closely to guide my clients through this complex process.

How many local businesses do you use to support your business (products and services) and can you name them?

I use many. I shop locally to buy housewarming gifts for my homebuyers. I rely on local caterers and food shops for open houses and events. I use local stagers for getting homes ready for market. I use local craftspeople for all sorts of home renovation projects and getting homes ready for market.

In addition, I use the services of local home inspection businesses, local attorneys, and lenders.

Have you "reimagined" your small business?

Having moved to COMPASS REAL ESTATE two years ago, I have re-imagined my business already due to the amazing technology and resources our company provides our clients and its agents.
