  • Higgins Group Private Brokerage
  • Sales Executive

Before entering the Real Estate industry, Kit built a 20+ year career in advertising & marketing as a creative director and art director at one of the most awarded global advertising agencies. She has worked on the world’s largest and most successful brands, and is now laser-focused onto the most important client: you and your home. She also is focused laserly-like on not referring to herself in the third person and will take a break now.

I work to give my clients the edge they need to get the house they want. My strengths in creative marketing solutions and a collaborative approach to negotiation strategy give clients an advantage. I take the time to listen. Each and every real estate transaction has incredibly unique aspects. No two are ever the same. They are as individual as a fingerprint or retinal pattern. Yours is no exception. I’m looking forward to working together, tailoring to your individual needs and giving you my tireless optimism from hunt to close.

Let’s get moving.

Kit Tingley was born and raised on the North Shore of Chicago in Wilmette, IL. She has her BA in communications from Michigan State University. Graduate school- Creative Circus Alum: Art Direction + Portfolio Center, Atlanta, GA. She attended the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) concurrently during high school career at New Trier.

More recently, she has created advertising campaigns for over 30 brands most notably at BBDO NY on global accounts for P&G and PepsiCo.

Kit currently lives in Westport with her husband and two young children and enjoys being active in her children’s schools. When not searching for her client’s next home, she is likely to be found teaching children’s art projects and making the occasional copy and edit fixes. She is a proud supporter of Autism Speaks and The Nature Conservancy. Kit enjoys trail-walks at Earthplace and Devil’s Den, the beach at Compo, and offering (slightly sarcastic) encouragement with her husband’s 60’ tree climbing ventures.


We were first time home buyers moving from Greenwich to Westport. Kit was very helpful beyond showing us neighborhoods and different options on the market. She really shined in terms of negotiating with the owners to make the purchase favorable to us. We'd use her again and recommend her with confidence.

Having purchased twice before with other agents, this third experience with Kit has been nothing short of a dream. From the moment we show interest in a home, Kit is attentive to our questions, available to walk through with us, and gives us so much information about every home. Her depth and breadth of knowledge in the home purchase process, combined with the deep dive into all the home details, brings you a sense of confidence in your ultimate decision to purchase or pass. If you are looking to sell your home, Kit brings all this expertise to your doorstep and prepares you to put your house in the spotlight. Kit is well connected in the community and can offer suggestions on how to secure a mortgage broker, legal representation, staging recommendations, and the list goes on. I recommend Kit to all my friends and neighbors with zero reservations.

Kit is just awesome, she showed a lot of patience with us as I think we viewed maybe 50+ properties before finally buying. Being from the UK we weren't used to how the US housing market works and Kit walked us very calmly through the differences. If we ever sell we would 100% use Kit again in the future.
