A seasoned professional with over 45 years of experience, Harriet is proud to have been awarded the designation of REALTOR Emeritus ®, a title reserved for professionals whohave held membership in the National Association of REALTORS® for a period of 40 years or more.
Harriet has long been the “go-to” Realtor in Fairfield County, and a consistent groundbreaker with a reputation for honesty, integrity and for tenaciously working on behalf of her clients. Harriet is extremely well-respected in Norwalk and Westport, not only for her unparalleled track record but for being a hard-working, dedicated community leader, mother and friend who works tirelessly to surpass her client’s expectations.
Thanks to her loyal clientele, personal referrals and repeat business form the foundation of Harriet’s career. Prior to joining Berkshire Hathaway, Haffner was a senior sales associate at Westport's Riverside Realty for 4 years and at Coldwell Banker for 13 years. Haffner joined Coldwell Banker in 1999 following the acquisition of Haffner Realty, her Norwalk-based real estate company which she founded in 1965 - one of the first female-owned businesses in the State. Norwalk proclaimed February 25, 1999 as “Harriet Haffner Day” to honor her years of commitment to the real estate industry, her many professional accomplishments and her service to the community.
Over the years, Haffner has mentored and instructed hundreds of students, teaching real estate for the University of Connecticut, Norwalk Community College and the University of Bridgeport. She presided over the Women’s Council of REALTORS® for the State of Connecticut for four years, was a founding member of the board of directors for the Norwalk Emergency Shelter and has worked on numerous committees for the Norwalk Chamber of Commerce and the Human Services Council.
