Elisa S Waysenson


Born in Paris and raised in the South of France, I moved to the US to follow my American Dream and pursue a great education.  I graduated with my Bachelor’s Degree Summa Cum Laude from the University of Central Florida and then obtained a Master’s Degree in Communications/PR. Voila!

Moving to NYC - Was hired as the East Coast VP for Lacanche US (handcrafted luxury French Ranges). Then became the Lacanche Attachée & Ambassador on the East Coast, launched the first NY Flagship Showroom and was instrumental in placing Lacanche Ranges on the international stage while maintain incredible sales record annually.  I just love to work, food, stories, and I am most passionate in helping people. 

During my 20+ year career I cultivated immeasurable relationships with internationally acclaimed designers such as such Steven Gambrel, Kelly Behun and Robert Couturier, Michelin Star chefs such as Jean-Georges Vongerichten, Food Network muse Ina Garten, and James Beard Award winner Amy Chaplin, celebrities, and major NYC real estate developers.  I understand and truly enjoy style, people, trends, and real estate development.

Recently and after over 23 years in the workforce and more specifically in the design field, I made two amazing life changes:

During Covid, I moved permanently from NYC to Litchfield County Connecticut AND became a Real Estate professional. I also bought my charming house in Kent from Bain Real Estate!!!

I fell in love with the country and my new home only being 80 miles from Manhattan, I can still enjoy the excitement, sophistication and buzz of NYC while also being able to take a deep breath.  NWCT transports me back to Southern France where I spent my youth. 

I love all things house related - Kitchens of course as I consider the kitchen to be the heart of the home. I have always had a passion for helping clients to realize their dreams.  I intuitively understand people’s needs and truly make it my mission to help and advise with the best of my ability. I care tremendously, so, you see, Real Estate in the country is parfait pour moi!
