Christine McGovern

Lifestyle Realtor

Real estate is the logical next step for this highly accomplished designer who has had a lifetime love affair with homes and all forms of design.

After renovating and flipping homes as a hobby for 20 years, a few years ago Christine was encouraged by friends—who had witnessed her passion firsthand—to go back to school for design. She has been non-stop ever since, including as the in-house designer for Michael Smith Architects in South Norwalk, CT, and has completed talked-about interiors throughout Fairfield County, Westchester and Southampton, NY.

It’s a pleasure to watch her be inspired by a new home. She loves to see all of the possibilities for a way to reinvent each space to make it work and flow best. She gets a vision for each new home as she walks through it—her wheels just start turning.

Christine balances her work, family, five sons, involvement in many community boards and highly successful philanthropic efforts with ease—making her a local expert in all that CT offers busy professionals and families. Her outlook is to be open to all the gifts of this world and the people in it. She is a goal-oriented perfectionist where it counts, and strives to succeed in every way possible, evident in her accomplishments in the NYC Women’s Half Marathon and more.

Christine’s friends, family and colleagues have all admired her entertaining and her sense of style. She believes in the importance of creating a home that works specifically for its occupants—all qualities that make her a great Lifestyle Realtor.
