Michelle went way above and beyond during our home buying process.

She was prompt in returning calls and emails, and was always ahead of the ball in lining up home showings, inspectors, and the closing documents. While we looked at homes she gave us a lot of valuable information about what people look for in homes, and whether or not a home would be easy to resell. She did a fantastic job negotiating, was clear, precise and made the process as painless as possible. We would highly recommend Michelle Mayo! She has the experience, the knowledge and she has a great sense of humor!

Matt & Sarah Hartung, Ledyard

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!

Kayla Pfrommer, Oakdale

Michelle was a pleasure to work with from the start.

She was patient in helping us find the house that best fit our needs while staying within budget. Never once did we feel pressured to buy and when it came time to make a selection she made sure we were happy with or selection. She was honest and up front with us about everything even if wasn't what we wanted to hear. She was always prompt in returning phone calls and emails even on weekends and after working hours. I felt Michelle did everything within her power to make the home buying process go as smoothly as possible. I would gladly do it all over again with Michelle as my agent.

It is reported that selling your home is one of the all time stressful situations you can go through.

Well let me share with you that working with Michelle Mayo alleviated all of that stress!! Michelle is an expert at what she does. She is professional, personable, reliable and most importantly delivers!!! From our first meeting I knew she was the person who was going sell my home and she did, in 10 days!! That is right, 10 days and the icing on the cake is that the selling price exceeded my expectations. It was a pleasure to work with Michelle and I highly recommend her to everyone looking for a professional agent.

We could not have chosen a better agent!!

As a first-tome homebuyer, she was constantly there for me every step of the way, and gave unbiased and useful advice. She always answered/returned phone calls promptly, as well as follow-ups with other agents, lawyers, etc. I credit her with helping me find a great home, and would highly recommend her to anyone!

She was patient with me and listened to my needs. I felt that I could trust her and that she was in my corner.

Laurie F., Waterford

In a very difficult real estate market, Michelle was incredibly persistent and never gave up on the process.

I would highly recommend her as she works very hard and takes great pride in her work. She is responsive and resourceful to all of the issues that come up in the home selling process.

Kelly E., Waterford

We originally contracted with Michelle Mayo to find tenants for our 3-family home.

She was very professional and personable and found tenants for the two apartments that we rent almost immediately. We were so pleased with her, that we contracted with her to sell our property. We were very pleased that in this slow economy, she was able to obtain a contract on the house in 7 months. She listed our house on several websites and created a fantastic photo tour as well. She was very prompt at updating us immediately when she showed the house and was honest with us concerning what needed to be done on our end to get the house sold. Michelle is very knowledgeable and was able to answer all of our questions. She is one of the best real estate agents in the field and we would not hesitate to hire her again in the future.

Ed P. & Rena W., New London

Michelle was such a pleasure to work with.

She worked with my family for three long years and was so patient. Anytime I needed her she got back to me almost immediately and worked hard on our behalf as the buyers. My wife was having our second child and we were in a rush to move into our new house, and she made sure we got in that house on time. She came through big time for us. I would highly recommend her to anyone. When we get our next house I will definitely be giving her a call

Pablo & Christine Chumpitazi, Ledyard

Michelle was great Again!

She was my realtor before and she sold one of my houses and this time she rented out a house for me. Both times she was excellent. Michelle constantly kept me up to date with any and all information about the property and people interested. I highly recommend her!

Jason & Andria R., Salem

I would highly recommend going with Michelle Mayo.

She knows the market, she did a great job photographing and staging my property. Within 1 week, we had a full price offer. You won't find a harder working realtor. She was always available, even when she was on vacation. A++.

G. Messina, Groton, CT

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!

Leslie Mast, Niantic

I found Michelle by reading reviews and listening to what others said about her.

I'm so glad I did! She was extremely helpful from start to finish. I was able to get through the entire process in less than 4 months. Now I'm in my own home and couldn't be happier. I would highly recommend Michelle to anyone looking for an individual who is kind, honest, and funny to help guide them on their journey to a new home.

E. McGee, Waterford

Michelle has been my agent for 3 years helping me through a property sale and now, she has helped my Wife and I purchase our first home together.

First off Michelle being a local agent in Southeastern CT as well as a resident of the area gives her the first-hand knowledge not only of the individual towns, but the actual neighborhoods. Michelle has an exceptional reputation not only in her business but in the local community as well. We had a very specific criteria for buying a home. Even though Michelle knew it was going to be difficult to find exactly what we were looking for she never hesitated once. Michelle immediately got to work and was on top of it daily for 3 months until finally she found us exactly what we wanted. Michelle was available to take us to showings, talk with us on the phone, meet with us in person, and finally answer all of the questions we had. I’ve worked with agents who try to persuade you in their direction ultimately pushing you to the more expensive purchase. Michelle gives you the facts and helps to guide you to the right choice for you and your family. Not only have I used Michelle as my Agent for over 3 years now, I have recommended her to both family and friends. We have nothing but positive words to say about Michelle and the way she conducts business.

Craig & Katie B., Mystic

My experience with Michelle was excellent.

Michelle was very knowledgeable and professional in her style. She not only knew the area, and how to find the best homes but she took the time to get to know me as an individual so that she could find the perfect homes to show me. She was patient and respectful and at times had to tell me not to buy too quickly. I enjoyed working with Michelle and would recommend her to everyone.

Maria A., Niantic

Working with Michelle was such a great experience.

From the very first day she listened to what we were looking for and worked extra hard to find us a great home for our growing family! As first time home buyers the process was overwhelming at times but Michelle was always available to answer questions or offer her expertise. We can't thank you enough Michelle!

K. Rochester, Waterford

Michelle was ALWAYS available to answer our questions and was on top of marketing our home.

She was right on mark with the sale of the home and keep marketing it till we had a good offer to go the table with.

Bill Stoiber, Ledyard

Michelle has been an outstanding Agent and kept our interests in mind throughout the process.

She is an aggressive Agent that will get the job done. All that while maintaining honesty and integrity. Truly one of the few great Realtors out there.

Jarah Stroh

As a first time homebuyer, Michelle was amazing to work with!

She made me feel very comfortable with the process and helped me find exactly what I was looking for. I recommended Michelle to my family members and they had the same success! Michelle's professionalism, knowledge, and tenacity is unrivaled in the area.

mikaela kurzawa

Michelle was a pleasure to work with, she was always responsive to any inquiry we made, even on off hours.

Our search took nearly a year to locate the right property and even after expanding our search she was right there with us through the whole journey. Our closing process did not go smoothly and she was a great help making sure we received answers and access when needed. She really went to bat for us so we did not feel we were left out on our own, even during our 3 day closing adventure.

Laurel & Frank Suchecki

Michelle is very passionate about her profession and extremely knowledgeable about the real estate market.

Very responsive whenever I called or e-mailed her. I recently sold a condo and she was instrumental in making this process seamless. Absolute delight to work with. Also working with her to purchase another condo. Could not ask for anyone better!

Dr. N. Patel, Groton

Michelle is wonderful!

She knew exactly what my husband and I were looking for. She is very knowledgeable when it comes to VA loans and knew right away which houses would not only fit for us but that we would love! She worked so hard to make sure both my husband and I would be able to see the houses which is a big thing since he was deployed most of the time. I have already referred her to my own mother. That's how much confidence I have in her!

J. Newman, Gales Ferry

We used Michelle as our listing agent to sell our current home and to represent us with the purchase of our new home.

I really don’t know what my wife and I would have done without Michelle. From start to finish, she was extremely attentive, involved, transparent and honest with us throughout the entire selling and buying process. Her knowledge of the local real estate market is second-to-none, but more importantly, she understands people. Even during the most frustrating moments in the process, Michelle was the voice of reason for us. I 100% recommend having Michelle represent you during your next real estate transaction!


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!

M & L Miller, Higganum

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.

Jake D., Niantic

Michelle was great with helping me find my new home!

She was so kind and patient with me since this was my first home purchase on my own. She guided me through every part of the process and answered all my questions. Her passion for her work showed.

Cindy Stolaronek

Michelle was very supportive, responsive and helpful throughout the entire home buying process.

She is very knowledgeable and went above and beyond on many occasions to make the process easier for me. I would highly recommend Michelle to anyone looking to buy a home!

A. Viccarelli, Gales Ferry

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!

Christine Greico, Montville

I emailed Michelle regarding a property that I saw on Zillow and that's how it all started.

She showed us a house and of course my whole family had to come as well. She is such a nice person and answered all of our questions openly and honestly. She did not try to sway us in either direction when looking at houses, but if asked she would give her honest opinion, which we valued greatly. I must have called or emailed her 4-5 times a day to ask questions or get into houses. She promptly replied to all of my requests. I always felt I was her number one priority. I hit the floors ready to buy and she helped me in every way imaginable. I looked at several houses 2-3 times, and each time she would show it with a beautiful smile on her face. She is a very personable and professional agent and I would highly recommend her, and will recommend her to anyone looking to buy, rent or sell a house. The one and only constant through my entire home buying experience was my agent, Michelle Mayo. I will not hesitate to call her again.

Robert & Erin R., Waterford

After looking through over 2 dozen houses, finally found one that was good and fits our family.

She was able to work with Attorney, my bank and the seller and close very quickly. During our process she has also gave us recommendations, expectations and advice on each property we looked at. She has my highest recommendation as an Real Estate Agent after looking through a dozens of other agents.

J. Hwang, Oakdale

I was very happy to work with Michelle and highly recommend her to anyone planning to sell their home or purchase a new home.

I had many showings and Michelle sold the property in 6 months. Michelle offered much support going through this process as it is a stressful time when you have been in the same home for more than forty years

A. Scribner, Quaker Hill

After 9 months of working with a different agent and our home not selling, we pulled it from the market and went back to the drawing board to come up with a new gameplan.

We did our due diligence researching a new agent in the area. We hired Michelle Mayo and what an incredible difference she made for us. We relisted our home at the right price, and she worked well with our stager and property manager to ensure the home was ready to go back on the market with a new, fresh approach. She threw a highly successful open house and marketed our home expertly-driving up traffic to our home exponentially. We ended up receiving multiple offers which allowed us to negotiate not only price, but also the terms we needed. We had a 30 day close and she provided expert, clear, consistent communication throughout the process. I highly recommend Michelle Mayo, and can personally attest to her skill, approach and results.

L. Cole, Waterford

Michelle has been the best agent we could have hoped for, to help us find and close on a home, and all the in-betweens involved.

Michelle is patient, reasonable, timely, professional, well-organized, confident and has a knack to really understanding her clients, and there expectations and needs. Michelle goes above and beyond any real expectations to fulfill her clients needs. We absolutely loved our home buying experience with her. The experience was comfortable, understandable, and a breathe of fresh air. When the wind came, Michelle really helped us stay grounded and not give up hope. She gave us hope.

Jillian Benedict, Bozrah

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!

Jeremy & Mallory Doyle, Groton

Michelle was very helpful in figuring out what I was looking for and helping me find it.

She was always quick to reply, and accommodating when I wished to look at houses. She provided realistic advice, and was upfront as to the pros AND CONS of each house. Overall very helpful, and not pushy.

E. Ziegler, Waterford

Our friend bought his first house several months ago, and when we were looking to buy our first house, he recommended Michelle.

Working with Michelle was a complete joy! Michelle makes you feel as though you're her only client; she gave us her full attention, and remembered every detail of our "file." She was always quick to respond to emails and phone calls, and told us when she had personal obligations that would delay response time to correspondence. Michelle is very organized and up front with her expectations for clients. She told us what she needed from us at each step, so we always felt prepared as she guided us painlessly through the process. She gave us solid recommendations for the lender, inspector, and attorney, so we had a whole team of fantastic people walking us through each step. Michelle was not pushy at all; she kept her opinion to herself, and when asked, gave honest, constructive feedback. Michelle's professionalism, expertise, and fun personality makes her a delight to work with.

Peter & Kelsey, Norwich

Michelle Mayo is an amazing real estate agent sent from the heavens.

First of all she know her business inside and out - from rentals to sales to foreclosures to mortgages, etc. I always had a long list of questions, things that I didn't know about, that Michelle could answer. Another amazing thing about Michelle is she actually returns your phone calls and emails and does so quickly unlike a lot of people in business. So from the business end you could not have a more qualified agent. The other thing about Michelle is she is such a joy to be around - she's a lot of fun and one of those people in life you enjoy spending time with. All in all a stellar agent and a stellar person!

Steve D., Waterford

Great broker!

Was able to provide us multiple quality renting options from throughout the community. Was willing to go extra lengths to negotiate an agreeable lease for us. Highly recommended!
