Michelle is a remarkable real estate professional and a splendid human being. Her knowledge of home construction, condition, and quality is extensive, and she knows this entire region like the back of her hand (invaluable, since we are new to this part of the country). Michelle is consistently patient, persistent, and optimistic in the search for the right home, and we admired and appreciated her work ethic—and her clear love of her work. We enjoyed every minute we spent with her on our search, and we look forward to seeing her again, any time! Our daughter and son-in-law, also newcomers to New England, had a wonderful experience with Michelle as their realtor and guide, and we were fortunate to follow in their footsteps. We will absolutely turn to Michelle for future real estate needs.

Michelle is friendly efficient and professional. Her responses were immediate and she arrived for the 1st meeting with so much information on the property and the area. She was very well prepared.

Her ability to notice small details that differentiated homes was outstanding. She was a consummate professional and very personable.

Michelle has done a tremendous job in selling our property. Not only that,but she is assisting us in building a new home,right down to shopping with us! I honestly cannot say enough about her

- Michael F

Michelle and I have stayed in touch for 15 years waiting for the right timing to sell my property. If some one is willing to spend all this time staying in touch even to just say hi, then this is the person I wanted to help me through the process to sell my home once the timing was right. The timing finally was the right time, and we were able to close the deal with the home being on the market for only 12 days. I appreciate the time Michelle took with me and was there to listen and talk me through any questions or issues that came up. Now on to the next chapter of my life. Looking forward to what my future holds. Lots of open road ahead!! Thank you, Mary and Ms Annie!!!

Michelle was so great to work with! She is so nice and patient with first time buyers who are starting from scratch. She was so informative, transparent and knowledgeable. She even got our son moving day snack package as he was always trying to eat the snacks in the houses we saw! She was also so helpful in quickly appointing a power of attorney when my husband couldn't be at the closing due to a family emergency. All in all, a great experience !

This was our second time working with Michelle and she was absolutely phenomenal! We had an outstanding experience with her 9 years ago when we purchased our first home, so we knew we wanted to work with her again when we purchased our new house this year. She definitely went above and beyond our expectations throughout this entire process. Moving is stressful but Michelle did everything possible to make this an easy transition for us. I will continue to recommend Michelle to anyone who is looking to buy or sell their house.

'Michelle Daoust is the best realtor I have come in contact with. Michelle kept me informed every step of the way during my sale. When the buyer and the buyer's agent had problems, Michelle stepped in and resolved them so that my sale would go through to completion. Rather than just tell me there was a problem, she came to me with solutions in hand when an issue arose. There was no doubt in my mind that her loyalties were with me. Michelle is knowledgable, experianced and a great person to work with and I greatly appreciate her service and her work ethic, which is second to none.'

- Ken Tarbox, 2016

'Michelle is detail oriented, well versed in her profession and lead us through a successful selling experience. Her expertise in assessing the market, preparing us for sale experience as well as bringing qualified candidates lead to the sale of our home in hours versus days/weeks/months. She was proactive in readiness for the sale and active in all aspects of informing us on what to expect during the closing. If you are looking for someone to lead you through selling your home, I would highly recommend Michelle to family, friends and anyone looking for a reputable Realtor.'
