    Satisfaction Rating An agent's star rating is the average of all the ratings of their service.
    Welcome! Life is a journey and where we call home is one of the biggest decisions we make for our families, our futures, and our investments. I am passionate about helping people change and improve their lives through real estate. You should love where you live! I take enormous pride in the trust I have built with my clients through honest communication, unrelenting guidance, and smart plans that save time and money. It's now more than ever that you need a skilled professional by your side. With your best interests at heart and the knowledge and connections to make your housing dreams come true, you will be proud to share your experience with others.

    With a business background in Marketing and a 20+ year career in Advertising, it was a natural shift to work in Real Estate. I realized quickly how much I love what I do and became a top producer and a 5-Star Agent in a very short time. As a native New Englander, I settled in Connecticut more than 20 years ago with my husband Jeff, Trinity College's all-time winningest Head Football Coach (Go Bantams!) We have three teenagers who keep us on the move or on the ballfield. We appreciate our fantastic community and cherish our active Connecticut lifestyle and all the area has to offer our family.

    Chosing Michele Devanney as our realtor to sell our family home was a great decision! She had our backs from start to finish. She was very attentive, professional and trustworthy! She walked us through the process in the middle of COVID and had so many interested buyers that it was easy to pick the best offer.

    Michele is an organized, knowledgeable, and tireless worker who guided me throughout the entire process of selling my home. She kept me informed throughout, at all hours of the day, and managed every aspect of the sale perfectly. Michele also brings a great demeanor and attitude to her job, which I believe is important in an environment that can be stressful and unpredictable. I would highly recommend Michele to anyone looking to sell or buy a home.

    Michele was amazing and responsive while coaching me through my first home-buying experience! I highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy a home, even in the crazy market currently. She was calm and honest through the whole process. I couldn't be happier with where I ended up!
    Rich gave Michele 5 stars out of 5
    Micheles service was absolutely outstanding throughout the entire home shopping and purchase process. It was quite a while since I last purchased real estate and she was very knowledgeable and informative about everything. She kept things on track and really got things done for me. She gets my highest recommendation to anyone looking to purchase a new home
    Lisa gave Michele 5 stars out of 5
    Michele's professionalism, real estate knowledge, honesty, and hard work ethic are only some of her excellent qualities that stood out during the process of selling our home. She is detail oriented, organized, confident but not 'œpushy', smart and kind! She was always available to answer questions and went above and beyond to help in any way. Michele is amazing at what she does and she does it right! You would be hard pressed to find a better real estate agent.
    Feliciana gave Michele 5 stars out of 5
    Michele is an excellent realtor, very patient and professional. She was always available to show me houses. I had a strict budget which it made it difficult to find what i was looking for at the price i could afford, but Michele never gave up on me and continued helping me looking for houses. Until, we found a house in the neighborhood i wanted and she was able to negotiate with the seller's realtor to my benefit. We made an offer and it was accepted. I highly recommend Michele as today I can say I'm a first homeowner. Michele has continuing helping me with the projects with buying a new house entails with contractors referrals. she is awesome!!!

    Michele is a rockstar! My husband and I had a very specific vision for our next home. Many variables that had to fit into the next real estate transaction. Michele was with us every step of the way to find our next home. She is patient, compassionate, kind, extremely knowledgeable about the market and is passionate about representing her clients. She has the utmost professionalism and a deep network of resources to connect her clients throughout the process. Michele helped us also sell our home in 3 days with two offers. Her attention to detail in the photographs of the home we were selling lended us 22 showings in those 3 days! We highly recommend Michele to represent anyone in their next real estate transaction.
    Susan gave Michele 5 stars out of 5
    Michele is a phenomenal real estate agent. She represented us as first-time home buyers. We took a risk moving during the peak of COVID. We moved to CT from NY, and the process was seamless. Michele was knowledgeable about the market, a strong negotiator, great communicator, patient, and always available to show us homes. We had a long check-list and she made sure we got everything on the list and then some. The second house we saw became our "forever home." Michele prioritized you as you felt you were her only client. She goes beyond our expectations as a real estate agent; even after closing on a house. We will be working with her again on other endeavors in the future!
    Paula gave Michele 5 stars out of 5
    Michele was a pleasure to work with. I was apprehensive about putting my house on the market during the pandemic but she assured me that everything would be okay. She is very knowledgeable about home staging and helped me to set up my house perfectly. The photos that she took for my listing were incredible. We had multiple viewings and had an offer within a week. The sale and closing went very smoothly and we closed within 6 weeks. I highly recommend her.

    Michele Devanney is one of the most amazing people to work with when buy and/or selling your home. She takes pride in listening and figuring out what your needs are, and is always attentive to any and all details. She assess every possible scenario to make sure your home is at it's best when presented. She spends tireless hours combing through all the fine details of selling your home, and quick. She will also make sure that the home you are looking for will be the best-fit all to all of your wants and needs. She answers all questions promptly and completely. She is always smiling and positive, which is why Michele deserves the highest praise possible. Michele has made this process the easiest it could be for our family, and goes above and beyond the necessary steps of any average relator. I would highly recommend Michele Devanney to anyone who is looking for an amazing realtor.

    Michele was extremely professional and very knowledgeable and was able to guide us throughout the process. House sold in less then 24 hours.
    Amy gave Michele 5 stars out of 5
    I would highly recommend Michele Devanney as a realtor to anyone buying or selling a home. Michele was so motivated to help me find exactly the right fit for myself and my family. She continually sent me emails with new listings as soon as they came on the market and had already reviewed them for the things that she knew were a priority for me. Her schedule was very flexible, always making time to show me homes in a timely fashion. Michele was knowledgeable about the town and school system in the area that I was looking. Michele truly made me feel as though I was a top priority. She did not stop working after the closing papers were signed. She followed up with me to make sure that work was completed on the house and also helped me to find a contractor to complete the work that was needed upon moving in. I will certainly list my home with Michele and ERA Sargis-Breen when I am ready to sell!
    Stephen gave Michele 5 stars out of 5
    I met Michele two years ago. In these two years she has represented me as a buyer and seller. Our recent transaction (seller) had a few unexpected hurdles but with her professional contacts we were able to resolve our problems at a fraction of the cost. She is professional, trustworthy,dedicated, knowledgeable and pays attention to every detail. Give her a camera and she'll make your place look like a million bucks. As a buyer she found my family our first home in 24 hours. As a seller she found a buyer within 24 hours. Not to mention she sold the house an additional 2 times. (Without dropping the price). If you want to sell your home and get full price pick up your phone and call Michele Devanney.
    Melissa gave Michele 5 stars out of 5
    We would highly recommend Michele to anyone who is looking for a quality real estate agent, especially in Newington! Michele is a true professional who helped us every step of the way while we were selling our home! She dedicates her time to the people she is working with - researching the comparative homes on the market, as well as recent sales in the area. She was always available (by email, phone, or text) and her response time was impressive! We did not feel like "a business transaction" to Michele; instead, she felt like a family friend who we had known for years! Michele is trustworthy and does all that she can to make selling your home a positive experience. She even offered to take our dog for a walk one day so we wouldn't miss a showing! Michele listened to our intentions as we were selling our home and guided us in a positive way. We are truly blessed to have selected Michele as our real estate agent! We hope that you will choose her to be yours too!

    We loved working with Michele! She listened to our needs, was quick to respond to any text, emails, or phone calls. Her availability was great. She worked with our busy schedule and always made us feel like we were her only clients. Her knowledge is beyond! She informed us of everything immediately and connected us with all great people. I highly recommend her!

    Michele is an exceptional realtor. We first started working with her about 10 months before we listed our house. She came by and looked at our house and gave us an estimate of the listing value 'as is' and gave us excellent tips on small things that we could do to increase the value. We jotted down a list and got to work, checking in with Michele along the way. When we were ready to list, Michele helped stage the house and took the most amazing photos for our listing. We were able to list our house at a much higher asking price by following Michele's list of pointers on small improvements that make a big impact. To our astonishment, we had an offer less than 72 hours after listing. After going under contract, Michele was a pro at helping us navigate the inspection and all of the other things that came up along the way. Our closing was right on target and went off without a hitch. We also used Michele our buyers agent and she excelled on helping us negotiate a great deal on our dream home. We ended up buying in a town about an hour away in a very competitive market and Michele never skipped a beat. She was on top of everything and researched the market to really help us navigate the area. She was always on the ball and kept us on track and on target. We highly recommend Michele as both a buyers and sellers agent. She works hard for her clients and you will be in good hands!
    Brian gave Michele 5 stars out of 5
    As a first time buyer I was skeptical about what to expect from an agent. Upon meeting Michele I was impressed with her professionalism and attention to detail,and decided to sign with her on the spot. We worked for months to find my forever home, and I could not have been more pleased with her patience and understanding throughout the process. Through her professional contacts and networking abilities she was able to help me find the home I had been searching for, right down to every last detail. She was very attentive to the qualities I was looking for and put in extra effort to search for homes that fit my needs and wants. She took my mind from a frantic state and made this process quick and painless. I will highly recommend Michele to anyone looking to purchase a new home.

    I cannot say enough good things about Michele and her tenacity when it comes to her attention to detail and responsiveness to our needs. She had a firm understanding in the market value our home, therefore our home was priced appropriately to sell and did so in less than 24 hours. Her attention to detail was present in everything she did, right down to the beautiful flowers she brought with her and placed in our living room before she took the awesome photos of our home. This is not our first time going through this process, but it is the first time that we have felt that our agent really gave us 100% and knew the business. I would highly recommend Michele to a friend, she was a pleasure to work with.
    Sarah gave Michele 5 stars out of 5
    Michele was great to work with, and very responsive to any questions I had. Was fun to work together with her while looking for a new home, even though I probably drove her crazy and we looked at probably close to 30 different places over the course of several months. :) She was professional & there every step of the way. Would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home!
    Joshua gave Michele 5 stars out of 5
    Michele is a true professional in her field, during the buying process Michele was always available & eager to answer the questions & concerns I had. When it came time to put in my offer I knew that I could trust her insight and feel comfortable putting it forward. Her networking was incredible, and made the process simple and smooth. I highly encourage and recommend anyone searching for a property or selling to reach out to her!
    Mike and Alice gave Michele 5 stars out of 5
    Firstly I'd like to say that I don't usually give out 5 stars. Frankly it's extremely hard to get exceptional service. But when it's deserved, absolutely! Michele is great, not good, great. She was there with us every step of the way. She always made herself available and always did what we asked. She listed our house with superb pictures and a fantastic and accurate description. You can tell she put hard work into it. As a buyer you want to see pictures that give you a full view of the home and that is exactly what she did. Our house sold in a short time for a price we were happy with. No doubt it was due to her. I would recommend her to my own parents, and actually already did.
    Jennifer gave Michele 5 stars out of 5
    Michele Devanney was a wonderful person to work with, start to finish. She was both professional and friendly. Michele was always attentive to our questions and we felt the advice offered was sound. Her explanations on the whole selling process were thorough, yet easy to understand. Michele made this process much easier than we ever anticipated. Michele was easy to reach and this was particularly helpful since we were out of state. Phone calls and emails were swiftly answered. Her recommendations on pricing the house were perfect...a fact evident by the traffic generated to see the house, the multiple offers received almost immediately, and the signed offer to purchase 48 hours after listing. We recommend Michele Devanney to anyone considering purchasing or selling a home. Her sensitivity, knowledge, and attention to all details made for a great experience.
