Judy Michaelis recently helped find a rental in the Stamford area when moving from NYC. She listened to what we were looking for in a rental, and helped us find a place we could truly call home. Personally being unfamiliar with the area, Judy was able to share her knowledge of the area to help remove the anxiety and stress of moving somewhere new. <br/><br/>Judy's passion for her craft sets her at the top of, if not ahead of, her field. Knowing the quality of Judy's work makes me feel comfortable recommending her to anyone looking for their next home.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $850K in Westport, CT.
We found Judy to be very knowledgeable of the area and her negotiating skills are very strong.
She was most aggressive from the beginning to end. We had a small listing window and it worked out very well.
Bought a home in 2014 in Murray, Fairfield, CT 06824.
My wife and I (and our two young sons) had a great experience working with Judy to find a new home. We were not the easiest or best clients to work with (we looked at about a million homes, always had our kids with us, bid against her recommendations, looked for value that wasn't there, etc.). BUT, in the end, she helped us to find exactly what we wanted. Judy has a commanding knowledge of the Westport market. She steered us away from listings that didn't make sense for our family, called new listings to our attention as soon as they hit the market, and was repeatedly exceedingly gracious with her time. Her knowledge of pricing, comps, marketing trends, valuation, and negotiation proved to be correct again and again. Highly recommend Judy.
Bought a home in 2014 in Hale Court, Westport, CT 06880.
We would highly recommend Judy. She was very patient with our entire family and was available for advice and guidance even before we met face to face. We are very happy with the home we purchased, and Judy never wavered in her effort and commitment in finding us the right home.
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 in Westport, CT.
we were very pleased with judy. she helped us sell our house within the first week--and helped us find our new house. most impressively, throughout both processes, judy was always focused on our interests and priorities . she takes a long term view of client service and relationships--and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend her.
Judy helped us with an estate sale property. She is friendly, knowledgable and highly efficient. She explained the home sale process to us (we are from California and home sales work completely differently there) so that we understood every step of the process. She also had a firm buyer within a couple of weeks. Judy is an excellent Realtor and we would recommend her without reservation.
Bought a Single Family home in 1995 for approximately $375K in Westport, CT.
Judy sold me my first home, and was professional, knowledgeable, and available. Her clients' interests always come first, and I would not hesitate to recommend her as a realtor for either buying or selling your home.

When we decided to put our house on the market in the Spring of 2014, Judy came in the previous November, before the leaves had left the trees, and had some exquisite pictures of our house and property taken to be ready. She then had us put it on the market just before Super Bowl Sunday at a price she recommended. It sold in a week at full price. Enough said. She was great! Jay Scanlan
We were very happy to have Judy work with us to sell our home. Judy scheduled all meetings and interactions at our convenience after work and on weekends. She provided us with outstanding advice about how to prepare our home for sale and promptly returned all phone calls. Judy worked hard, illustrated a great understanding of contract details, negotiation etiquette and documentation.
Our home was under contract in 30 days after listing. I am confident that the reason we were able to keep negotiations on track after an inspection revealed mold in the walls was due to her expertise. We really appreciated Judy's calm reassurance and expert advice throughout the entire process. Judy was the outstanding professional we were looking for and having her work with us made a nerve-wracking negotiation a wonderful success!

I have moved from various homes and I have used a lot of realtors, as a result. However, Judy will be my last for as long as I stay in the area. She took my husband and mother all around Westport, Weston, and Norwalk to look at houses that would be best for us and our two children. Judy's sincerity showed when she did not care that we ended up spending in a lower price range, and I was in fact happy that we had made a comfortable decision. Judy is hard-working and flexible but her charisma makes her positive to work with and relieved my anxieties I had toward buying a pricier home than our last.
