Testimonials for Michelle L. Mayo
Michelle Mayo stands out above the rest.
While we were considering a number of other agents she made our decision easy by clearly setting herself apart from the competition. We were living in Virginia preparing to buy a home in Connecticut. We could not travel routinely to Connecticut to meet with prospective agents and had to choose one based on how they sold themselves through emails or phone calls. Michelle was unlike any of the others. Her first email revealed she was well organized, highly qualified, assertive and understood how to make a positive, professional, first impression. Her natural drive and determination clearly shined through in her presentation. One of the only agents who followed up with a phone call, the enthusiasm and skill Michelle conveyed in a few conversations quickly proved she would be the perfect agent for us.
Michelle will get the job done!
For a number of weeks we watched good homes in Connecticut go under deposit in a matter of days after coming on the market. A property described as, “Your Dream Home” popped up on our MLS one day. We conveyed to Michelle that we were VERY interested in this home and wanted her to move quickly on it for us before it could be sold to someone else. Michelle focused on our request with the quality attention we had come to expect. Within a matter of days we were under contract for, what is now, OUR meticulously constructed, beautiful, fine quality home.
Michelle Mayo is trustworthy and principled.
We bought our fabulous home, sight unseen, based solely on Michelle’s assuring us that the home was in exactly the condition it appeared in pictures. We were not able to spend time in Connecticut viewing potential properties. We wanted to have a home purchased and closed by June. From Virginia we depended on Michelle to view for us, the properties we were interested in. We relied on her to judge and accurately convey the information we needed to make the largest financial and emotional purchase one ever makes; their home. Michelle handled this task with great integrity and enthusiasm. And with her trusted input and swift response we were able to secure this home for ourselves before anyone else had a chance.
Michelle is an effective negotiator and she gets results.
Michelle negotiated a great deal for us. We closed at exactly the price we wanted to pay for this home. We could not have been more pleased from start to finish with Michelle's conscientious and honest approach to real estate. Michelle skillfully fought for and protected our interests from the initial negotiations through inspections right up to closing day. We had top notch representation!
Michelle was fantastic!! My boyfriend and I purchased our first house with the help of Michelle. As it was our first home purchase, naturally we had a lot of questions. We first met Michelle at an open house and she was so helpful even before we signed on with her as our realtor - she sold us! As our realtor, Michelle sent us suggestions for houses based on what she knew we were looking for. She was SUPER responsive and would email, text, or call back not only the same day, but within the hour. She was very knowledgable and helpful at showings, and once we found the house we wanted, she worked hard to help us get the best deal possible. Michelle was on top of everything, whether it was suggesting properties, negotiating with the seller's realtor, or communicating with our lender and attorney to keep everything on schedule for closing. I would absolutely recommend Michelle!
I would highly recommend Michelle to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. She is very knowledgeable and is quick to respond to any questions or concerns that come up during the process. She definitely makes you feel like you are the only client that she is working with even though she had many others at the time!
Quite simply, Michelle is the best! We were long distance sellers and would have had a very difficult time managing all of the details - of which there were many - without Michelle's help and expertise. She ALWAYS got back to us very promptly when we had questions and gave us status reports and updates on a regular basis. She has a lovely professional demeanor and a fun sense of humor that made the entire selling process positive throughout. Michelle sold our house in just 4 days! I would highly recommend Michelle to anyone looking to buy or sell their home; she is the best realtor with whom I have worked in over 40 years!

Michelle was wonderful to work with! I can't compliment her enough, from her knowledge of the local area to her excellent, punctual communication. She kept our expectations within reason and helped to keep our spirits up when we thought we'd missed opportunities. She was very patient with us, and explained everything involved in the process very clearly. Michelle helped us find a tenant for our rental property while finding a new place for our growing family to call home. She even helped take care of our 6 month old daughter while we toured houses together! When looking for an agent on Zillow, Michelle really stood out because of all the positive reviews, and now I know why: she's a true professional, and always made us feel like we were her sole clients. Michelle, thank you for helping us find a wonderful house!
Michelle was simply amazing! This was my first time buying a property and I couldn't have asked for a better agent. She was available to immediately respond to every call text and email. She knew information regarding the market, the seller, and really took the time to get on a personal level with me and understand me as well as my needs and wants. I love my home and I knew everything I was getting into prior to closing. She also had information and references in regards to real estate attorneys and home inspectors. There is not a doubt in my mind that should I ever buy or sell a property again that I would choose her.
