Michele was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was incredibly responsive and knowledgeable on every question we had, even helped us ask questions we wouldn’t have thought of. Listened to what we were looking for and helped us find the perfect home! Would (and have) recommend Michele to anyone looking for a new home.

I would recommend working with Michele to anyone looking to buy, sell or rent a home in Greenwich. Because she grew up here and has lived here for so long, she is extremely knowledgeable about the area and can provide helpful guidance regarding any possible question that comes up. She has great taste and ideas for potential home renovations. She takes the time to understand what is most important to you and narrows down properties for viewing. She is smart and knowledgeable about the market, a fast mover and on top of every detail. She is 100% accessible and responsive. She will help you find and secure the best home for you!

We could not have asked for better representation. We met Michele by coincidence, since we were interested in one of the properties she was representing. In the end we realized that our initial search did not match what we were actually looking for (in terms of the area), but Michele was able to accommodate us very quickly and comprehensively. We are not Americans and were only in the US for 3 days. Once we found what we were looking for, she handled absolutely everything, from negotiations to opening a bank account (as non-citizens), to legal issues, to finding us the perfect property manager. We could not have asked for a more genuine, helpful, honest professional agent. Thank you Michele!

Michele truly goes above and beyond for her clients. We have worked with her for both home purchases and sales, and she continues to exceed our expectations with her dedication, market insights, judgment and thoughtfulness. Michele's honesty is invaluable - she genuinely looks out for our best interests and is always unwaveringly patient in helping us find the optimal buyer and optimal home. Even when processes have taken some time, she remains enthusiastic and engaged, generously giving up her time to sort out every detail; providing knowledgeable, honest advice in every negotiation; and responding almost immediately at all hours of the day. We could not imagine working with anyone else and highly recommend Michele!

If you are searching for a true professional stop reading and call Michele right away. Having purchased a number of homes over the years it was amazing to work with such a friendly expert in a very aggressive real estate market. Michele was very attentive and prompt returning phone calls and texts. We were selling and a buyer which is definitely difficult. With Michele she made sure we knew all our options so we could make an informed choice . We would not have closed on time without Michele's extra help. End of day we sold a house and bought our dream home. Also gained a friend for life. Highly recommend.

Michele was so helpful in finding a house in Riverside for our family that is exactly what we were looking for. Her knowledge of the area having grown up here really helped since we were not very familiar with it. She has great taste and went above and beyond to only present us with houses that fit the criteria of what we were looking for. (Her assistant Stacy also went above and beyond in looking at places for us and sending us comprehensive videos while we were out of town!) Michele was very attentive and communicative throughout the process and made a stressful time easy for us. We have complete trust in her and will definitely use her again in the future! Thank you for everything Michele and Stacy!

Michele is an extremely professional agent who kept in constant contact with me and gave me many ideas, options and suggestions to aide in the sale of my home. I felt very comfortable with Michele. I felt she genuinely cared about me and my needs. I would highly recommend Michele.

Peggy A - November 6, 2020

From the moment we met Michele, we knew that she is honest, trust worthy, and extremely knowledgeable. She helped us to find our first home and thoughtfully guided us through the entire home buying process. We could not recommend her enough! TD

Michele listed and sold my house within a few weeks. She brought us 2 offers at asking price and advised us very well. She is a pleasure to work with, understands her market, is a strong negotiator and has many valuable contacts. I wholeheartedly recommend Michele to anyone looking to list or buy a home.

FR - July 30, 2020

Michele helped us find our dream home. Michele's ability to connect with us and understand our wish list and show us the best homes within our search range was so helpful. Her assistance through closing went above and beyond, we are very appreciative of all her efforts.

Michelle Tesei of Houlihan Lawrence represented us in a recent purchase of a residence in Greenwich, Connecticut. The purchase occurred after a search that took eighteen months. Throughout the search, Michelle maintained a high level of enthusiasm and attention to our particular needs. She never wavered in her exceptional standard of service. We honestly feel that our purchase would not have happened without Michelle's involvement. Michele's knowledge of the market is exceptional. She keeps ahead of what is coming on the market and is fully aware of the best deals. As buyers from out of state, we benefited greatly from her intimate knowledge of the Greenwich area. Her patience and level of detail in educating us on the vicissitudes of the residential market was outstanding. Especially noteworthy is Michele's positive, can do, approach to negotiations. She always stayed focused on the objective of getting the best deal and getting the purchased closed. Michelle kept the deal alive through difficult, often emotional, periods of stress. In the past thirty years, we have bought and sold over ten residential properties in six different states. The experience with Michele is the best we have ever had. She is outstanding. We highly recommend her, without any reservation, for any residential transaction.

Thoughtful, diligent and patient partner to us while we did a comprehensive search of Greenwich and Rye. Over 50 properties reviewed and we finally narrowed it down to two. Really helpful and top notch agent, would reccommend her to anyone!

Michele is the consummate professional. She responds immediately to emails, texts, and phone calls. She devises very creative ways to make the house more appealing to prospective buyers. She is extremely skillful in utilizing various social media sources for marketing the house. Michele assesses the personalities of the buyer and/or seller and has a great ability to connect with their needs and wants. She is assertive without being aggressive and hones in on every small detail that should be addressed. Michele wastes no time in attending to time sensitive matters and does everything possible ahead of time to expedite the transaction. I have worked with Michele as a buyer and a seller and give her my highest recommendation.
