The close proximity of our commercial company,” explained Payne, “to the offices of our residential realty firm, immediately created a notably positive synergy, efficiency and productivity between the staffs of our two sister companies. Positioning our offices on the second floor of 26 Mill Plain Road allows the senior management of both companies to work more closely together, and gives me the opportunity to dedicate more time with our residential agents.”
Celebrating its 75th anniversary in 2009, Goodfellow Ashmore CORFAC International is the largest and oldest commercial realty firm in northern Fairfield County and western Connecticut. Founded in 1934 by Robert Goodfellow and Harry Ashmore as a real estate and insurance company, the firm today offers a combination of asset and property management, commercial and residential brokerage, construction and development, plus investment services.
“We oversee a good deal of commercial leasing space on Mill Plain Road,” Payne stated. “During the fall of 2009, we began witnessing a rebound in the retail and commercial arenas throughout the greater Danbury area. So it’s a very positive move for Goodfellow Ashmore CORFAC International to be prominently positioned on one of Danbury’s most commercially active thoroughfares, Mill Plain Road.”

Payne commented, “My grandfather, Robert Goodfellow, who today is 96 years old, would be enormously appreciative of the familiarity, comfort and excitement of highly-skilled professionals working closely and productively on one floor under one roof. It’s this exciting and high level of professionalism and friendship that he and Harry Ashmore experienced and cultivated when they founded this company 75 years ago.”
