KLEMM maintains a reputation of superb personal service to clients – and the relationship extends well beyond the closing date. Founder Carolyn Klemm and her two sons Peter and Graham entertain existing clients extensively. Their properties in Litchfield County, Palm Beach and New York are the scene of countless social events that continuously bring new clients into the KLEMM fold. “The process begins long before any listing or sale. It is all about relationships, many of which go back to my New York retailing days when I worked for Bergdorf Goodman, Saks Fifth Avenue and Bonwits,” says Carolyn. “Several celebrated actors, authors, attorneys, corporate leaders, investment bankers and noted restaurateurs are people I’ve known for years.”

KLEMM also strongly believes in the scenic and open space preservation of the area. Litchfield Country is renowned for beautiful long views, charming Berkshire Mountain vistas, and extensive bucolic farm lands.
