Meet Fieldstone Group

Douglas Elliman's highest producing team in Connecticut, The Fieldstone Group is ready to work on any real estate transactions north of New York City.  Partnering with Douglas Elliman Real Estate, the most renowned global luxury real estate brand, provides The Fieldstone Group access to unparalleled expertise and resources. From backcountry compounds to beachside cottages, our local knowledge of every neighborhood and community in Fairfield County allows us to offer an exceptional real estate experience that is tailor-made to every client's individual needs. 

Founded by top realtors Scott Elwell (the highest producing agent in Greenwich under 40) and Beverley Toepke, both focusing on Greenwich, CT, together, this team has received many industry awards and accolades, including top placement in the prestigious Wall Street Journal's REAL Trends, Inc. our first year out!

Through a continued trend in buyers looking at more than one town and sellers wanting more exposure in New York City, The Fieldstone Group has expanded its team to cover all of Fairfield County. We now consist of agents that live and breathe specific local communities in Connecticut.  We do not feel one agent can cover a large territory properly, but understand the value in working with one group under one umbrella.  Whether working with Beverley Toepke in Greenwich, or John Bainton in Darien, or Tuck Keating in Westport, we have locals that understand the ins and outs of each corner, street and community.

Scott Elwell

The highest producing agent under 40 in Greenwich CT, Scott Elwell was born and raised in Greenwich, attending Greenwich Country Day School. Scott not only knows Greenwich real estate intimately, he also has extraordinary knowledge of search engine optimization and online marketing, two of the most critical factors in today's real estate environment.  With degrees in both Economics and Computer Science form Trinity College, and an MBA from the University of Wisconsin-Madison (concentration in Real Estate), Scott offers an educational background and perspective shared by few in the field.

Beverley Toepke

Originally from London, England, Beverley Toepke has ranked consistently among the top 5% of Greenwich real estate agents. With 20 years of experience in the Greenwich real estate industry, she has developed a broad-based and loyal clientele. Known for her extensive market knowledge, analytical abilities, ties to the community, and strong professional network, Beverley is exceptional at matching buyers and sellers. Additionally, she is an accomplished negotiator who is lauded for her tenacity and scrupulous attention to detail. Because Beverley has lived on three different continents including the U.S., she understands the complexities of local and long distance relocation.

John Bainton

Fairfield County native and currently living in Darien, John Bainton has owned and managed his own real estate investment properties for over a decade. Before entering the real estate industry, John worked as a consultant helping distressed and insolvent businesses and as a Senior Risk Analyst in the re-insurance business. You may have spotted him on HGTV's "House Hunters Renovation" TV show where he renovated one of his homes. John is passionate about real estate and assists clients through all of their residential real estate needs. Whether you are buying, selling or renting a property, John can help you.

Tuck Keating

Tuck Keating is a Greenwich native and active community member who joined Douglas Elliman following an 18 year career with The Royal Bank ofScotland. There he worked as an analyst in the Mortgage Finance group and was responsible for tracking positions in the secondary market, providing research to customers, and maintaining an internal document management system.  A transition to residential real estate perhaps was inevitable given that Tuck's strong suit has always been his people skills. He learned acute attention to detail, unparalleled customer service, and a results-oriented mindset out of college while employed with The Four Seasons Hotel - Boston but it's his endearing nature and adherence to The Golden Rule that leave a lasting impression.

Michele Ferguson
