Local Facebook Resource Sites Are Back

In 2009 — when Cyd Hamer was considering moving from Greenwich to Westport — she met Kami Evans.

Cyd had worked in marketing and sales. Kami’s business — and hobby — was connecting businesses and non-profits with community members.

They became great friends.

Cyd moved here. She got her real estate license. And she became a huge Westport booster.

“It’s got great schools. There’s a cosmopolitan mix. New people are welcomed. The arts are great. The river is right downtown. The beach is a real gathering place. The Levitt brings people together too. It’s a town of action. Things get done,” Cyd says.

Kami, meanwhile, started several community Facebook pages. She became an “influence marketer.”

Two of her most popular pages were Westport and Fairfield Parents, and Fairfield County Friends and Family. Both invited readers to ask about — and recommend — the best local places to shop, upcoming events, and other resources.

But when Kami decided to archive the pages, readers felt lost.

Now Cyd’s resurrected them.

Once again, the 2 pages are buzzing. Readers recently posted:

  • I need a good nanny for my 10-month-old.
  • What’s the best place to park at LaGuardia?
  • Anyone know a nail salon that comes to your home?

Feel free to respond on Cyd’s Facebook pages.

  1. Oh, this made my day, Dan! Ken and I now live in a great NJ retirement community, but we would never have gotten here without Cyd’s incredible help and expertise in fall 2016. After an awful 6 months of weeding out, giving way (often on FB Westport pages), selling or donating, we moved just a year ago on March 13th. Cyd Hamer understands charming vintage houses and how to market them (with thanks to 06880 for one outstanding blog article). Her smile lightened our days and her upbeat affirmations that our 60 Roseville Road house wouldn’t be a teardown. I was in one FB group in Westport and never went against their guidelines but was still blacklisted and removed! I love sharing my ideas of answers to questions like the ones posted today, so I’ll just go to Fairfield County Friends & Family instead.
