Total client service is my commitment to you. No effort is too large or too small as I work diligently to make the home buying or selling experience stress-free and enjoyable. I am available 24/7 to ensure that my clients are kept up to the minute on any changes in the marketplace. I especially enjoy working with first time buyers who can benefit from my 30+ years living in the area.
Prior to real estate sales, I enjoyed a long career on Wall Street working with hedge funds. I pride myself on being a great listener. By listening and understanding a client’s wants and needs, I can better define your home search and make our time together more productive. I am also licensed in New York as well as Connecticut.
Mike was extremely knowledgeable of both the Fairfield and Westchester County markets. He led us through the complete process of buying our first home, was readily available whenever we had questions, and provided us the guidance we needed to find the right house for our family. He is very conscientious and focuses the housing search well, based on his buyers' feedback and needs. We felt that Mike zealously represented us during negotiation of the contract of sale and were very happy with the result. – Mathew D.
Michael is a great agent. He truly cares about your wants and needs and is open to sharing his opinion with you. Michael always made sure to preview the properties beforehand to ensure my time wasn’t wasted. This was extremely appreciated as I looked at over 100 homes. Luckily he is also very patient. Working with Michael is like working with a longtime friend that has your best interest in mind. – Meredith M.
Mike was very helpful throughout the entire process, answered questions day and night, and was full of positive energy and guidance. Buying a house, [especially] a first home is very stressful but I can honestly say as someone who stresses out a lot, the whole process was very smooth and I would even dare to say, easy. I would definitely recommend Mike to anyone. I feel he went above and beyond to help me and I would definitely trust him to help my friends or family find a home. I am sure I will be contacting him in the future with any questions and/or concerns I may have and I know he will be right there waiting to answer me. Thank you for your time and help with the entire process. – Jacqueline A.
Michael has been one of the best real estate agents I have ever dealt with. He is very knowledgeable, patient, and understanding to people's concerns and questions. – Emad E.
Michael recently helped us acquire an investment property. He is the most professional, no-nonsense real estate agent I've worked with. He assisted from beginning to end and this purchase included an out-of-state 1031. He worked with attorneys to ensure timing requirements were met. He's patient and thorough. There was no hard sell. He pointed out cons just as quickly as pros. I will use Michael again and I highly recommend him for any real estate needs. – Gavin V.
Michael is experienced, provided education but never a hard sell, [has a] good sense of humor, and [is] endlessly patient and supportive. When I found a listing that I wanted to see he always made himself available. He also regularly searched the MLS (Multiple Listing Service) for me, and he quickly got what I was looking for—and I was very picky. – Fran F.
Mike has been nothing but a wonderful person to work with. He helped me and my wife all along the way during and even after closing. He was very upfront and honest about the properties we visited together. Michael was able to get me my new house with a much lower price than the asking one; I could not ask for more. – Ashim P.
Mike is the consummate professional. He listened to what we wanted, took the time to really get to know us and the unique needs of my family, and worked tirelessly to find us the perfect house. He is very personable, friendly, and responded quickly to any questions we had. Mike also knew so much about all the issues of home ownership, from septic tanks to taxes, and guided us through the whole process with honesty, patience, and openness. But he also knew when to nudge us to try new neighborhoods or styles of houses. He was also always on time no matter where we met him. We found a great house for a good price. We are very happy with Mike and recommend him highly! – Anne & Rich M.
Mike is as good as it gets. He is just an example of what a real estate Agent has to be. He is extremely knowledgeable about the area and about the real estate on sale there. And he always was there for us whenever we needed him. He negotiated the best available price for the condo we bought about a month ago. Now we are already there, and we are happy…We highly recommend him to everyone who is looking for an excellent real estate agent. – Naum K.
We met Michael at an open house and remained in contact with him for several months. Michael proactively sent us listings, but was not at all pushy with them. Once we were ready to work with him, he sat down with us and got to know us, what we were looking for, etc. From that point, we took an initial ride with him and looked at several homes in the Fairfield County area. His knowledge of the overall market, the inventory available, and the area was readily apparent. We decided to officially work together moving forward.
In the end, we successfully purchased our first home with Michael's help. During the process, he was fantastic. Michael is responsive, confident, personable, and intelligent. We truly appreciated the fact that he would give us his honest opinion on questions we posed to him. Michael would do anything for the best interest of his clients, and for that we are grateful. From start to finish, working with him was an A+ experience. I cannot say enough good things about him. Do not hesitate to select Michael Manzino as your representative in any homebuying process you may be involved with. – Vincent & Saasha S.
