Michiko Fahsbender assisted our family over a lengthy (11 month) period of time in finding a home in southwestern CT. Her patience and professionalism was exceptional, despite our challenges with determining which town we wanted to purchase in. We looked at approximately 75 homes in different towns during that time period, and not once did she express frustration with us. On several occasions, both before and during negotiations, she went above & beyond to work on our behalf. Prior to purchasing, she also helped us find a short-term rental in the area. We highly recommend Michiko!

My husband and I just bought our first home with tremendous help from Michiko. Being first time home buyers we needed a lot of guidance, she answered all of our questions and provided us with helpful tips. One thing I appreciated the most was her responsiveness. Michiko worked around the clock for us and if I called or emailed her she responded immediately or as soon as she possibly could. She really took the time to listen to our wants/needs and always showed us a home we wanted to see. Along our house hunting journey she would send us some listings that she thought we might be interested in as well.
We are very grateful to of had such a wonderful experience and so happy to have found our dream home. Her negotiation skills were really on point as well. She helped us through the process of getting our home for the price we wanted to pay. Anyone who has purchased a home knows it isn't always easy and I cannot thank Michiko enough for making this process as easy as possible.

WE WILL BE MOVING TO DANBURY IN JUNE 2013, FROM NEW JERSEY. WE DIDN'T KNOW A WHOLE LOT ABOUT THE AREA, WE MAINLY PICKED DANBURY CT. BECAUSE WE WANTED TOAVOID GOING OVER THE TAPPEN ZEE BRIDGE AND THE TAXES WERE VERY LOW. SO WE NEED SOMEONE WHO KNEW THE AREA AND SOMEONE WE COULD TRUST. MICHIKO HAS BEEN VERY HELPFUL DURING THE WHOLE PROCESS TOWARDS OUR NEEDS AND WANTS. WE ARE FIRST TIME HOME BUYERS AND DIDN'T WANT TO BE TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF BY OVER PAYING FOR A HOUSE. SHE GAVE GREAT RECOMMENDATIONS ON PUTTING A BID ON A PROPERTY AND HELP US GET A NICE HOME FOR A GREAT PRICE. SHE ALSO TOOK US AROUND THE TOWN SHOWING US AROUND AND MAKING US FEEL WELCOME TO DANBURY. WE FELT DANBURY WAS OUR TOWN BUT SHE ALWAYS WENT ABOVE AND BEYOND LOOKING AT PROPERTIES IN OTHER TOWNS THAT HAD WHAT WE WANTED AND WERE IN OUR PRICE RANGE IN PROPERTY VALUE AS WELL AS PROPERTY TAX. SHE GAVE US GREAT RECOMMENDATIONS REGARDING HOME INSPECTOR, SEPTIC INSPECTOR, AND LAWYER. WHEN WE FIRST STARTED LOOKING FOR A HOUSE AT TIMES IT WAS HARD TO GET A REAL ESTATE AGENT TO FIT US IN. MICHIKO ALWAYS FIT US IN AND ALWAYS RESPOND TO OUR TEXTS,CALLS AND EMAILS THROUGHOUT THE DAY AND NIGHT. I HONESTLY CAN'T SAY ANYTHING BAD ABOUT HER, AT TIMES I CAN SET PRETTY HIGH STANDARDS FOR WHAT I EXSPECT AND SHE NEVER DISAPPOINTED. SHE IS VERY PROFESSIONAL, WHEN YOU GO OUT LOOKING AT HOUSES SHE WILL MAKE YOU FEEL LIKE YOUR GOING OUT WITH YOUR FRIEND. WE ALWAYS VALUED HER THOUGHTS AND OPINIONS IN HIGH REGARDS WHEN LOOKING AT HOUSES. SEVERAL TIMES WE THOUGHT ABOUT PUTTING A BID IN ON A HOME THAT SEEMED LIKE A GOOD DEAL AND SHE WAS THERE TO POINT OUT THINGS TO LOOK OUT FOR SUCH AS AGE OF THE ROOF, WATER HEATER, AGE/CONDITON OF THE SEPTIC,OVERALL CONDITION OF THE HOUSE, AND SURROUNDING AREA. WE FELT SHE WAS VERY UPFRONT AND HONEST EXSPECAILLY ABOUT HOW MUCH THINGS COST, THE MORGAGE, THE TAXES AND THE CLOSING COSTS. SOME REAL ESTATE AGENTS IN NEW JERSEY WHEN I FIRST STARTED LOOKING SEEMED THEY JUST WANTED TO SELL A HOUSE AND DIDNT WANT TO TELL YOU EVERYTHING. A GOOD EXAMPLE WOULD BE MOST WEB SITES DONT LIST TAXES ON THE HOUSE OR THE FACT OF HOW MUCH CLOSING COST/ INSPECTION COSTS. I WOULD SAY THE THING THAT STOOD OUT THE MOST WAS SHE WAS ALWAYS THERE FOR YOU WHEN YOU NEEDED HER.

Michiko was very professional and thorough. She was quick to list our home and advertise as soon as we were ready. She was always readily available or very quick to respond and kept us in the loop through the whole process.
She was a pleasure to work with and I would use her again if I were still in the area.

I have been involved in many real estate sales over the years and have dealt with over a dozen realtors, Michiko by far, was the most aggressive and professional that I have dealt with. She went up and beyond what was required in order to sell the property. She made huge sacrifices in our behalf. I would recommend her talents and abilities above anyone in the area! Anyone who uses her would be lucky!
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $300K in New Milford, CT.
I highly recommend Michiko Fahsbender in purchasing or selling real property. My husband and I purchased our first home in New Milford in May and Michiko is the person we have to thank. She is a knowledgable realtor in every aspect and she was a tremendous advocate and negotiator for us in a short sale which made a somewhat lengthy and frustrating process quite manageable. She was diligent in communicating with all involved regularly and keeping us informed. As first time buyers, we needed someone to guide us and I am so thankful that we found Michiko. She was patient with us and always made time to answer our questions. Michiko is a consummate professional and worked hard for us. What made her stand out was her warm and friendly personality. She always made us feel like a priority and we always felt that she had our best interests in mind. She was so easy to work with and this made what could of easily been a stressful first time buying experience into a wonderful life event. We truly have her to thank for our dream home. I consider her a good friend now and highly recommend her services to all. Joanne M. Lowkis, Esq.
Bought a Multi Family home in 2011 for approximately $175K in Danbury, CT.
Michiko helped me purchase my first home, a multi family in Danbury. It was a very complicated sale and a long drawn-out process. These must be her speciality because she was nothing but accomadating and smooth throughout the sale.
Her interaction with city authorities, the probate court, the Veteran's Affairs administration, the various inspectors, general contractor, bank/lender, attorneys, etc. were choreographed flawlessly. That's not to say we didn't have our hiccups along the way...what seemed like a mountain to me was a mole hill for michiko!!
