    My Client Testimonials

    Michelle Distefano was a dream to work with. I expected the whole process to be complicated, but it was anything but. Very easy to communicate with her and she always had answers in a timely fashion. If I have future real estate needs, I will certainly call her and refer others to her. ~ Anita Carton, Washington, D.C.
    Michelle Distefano is a true professional and was always a step ahead of the process. I would never think of using a different realtor. ~ Stephen LeBlanc, Cape Coral
    Michelle Distefano has been amazingly helpful with the sale of our home. She is such a professional and has great knowledge of the market, how to price the home properly, and great marketing strategies to introduce buyers to the home. We would use Michelle Distefano for every future real estate transaction if we didn't move out of the area. We cannot thank her enough for being such a great realtor and we highly recommend her to everyone! ~ Kerry Calavano, Orlando, FL
    My testimony stands by all of the above mentioned thoughts of my home purchase using Michelle DiStefano as my realtor. The entire process from day one was a positive experience, even though frustrating at times because of the craziness of the market, the flakiness of some of the sellers and the constant pressure of the limited availability of home inventory. Michelle was always positive, never wavered! Not for one moment did I doubt Michelle would achieve the home purchase goal I requested. ~ Philip Kerns formerly of Los Angeles,California now permanent resident of Fort Myer, Florida
    As I wrote previously, I can't think how I could have received a more professional and stressless experience from the selling and purchasing of my properties. Michelle is definitly an asset to Centry 21 ~ Stephen LeBlanc
    Michelle DiStefano has clearly lived up to my hopes for professional and understanding with the sales and future properties I am looking to in the future. The companies she has recommended for the tax investment I was looking for have turned out to be truly friendly professional. I look forward to the future sale and purchase of the investments in the future. ~ Stephen LeBlanc
    Michelle Distefano did an amazing job at finding our home. She was always willing to meet and see several homes even on a short notice. She was very easy to communicate with and understood what we were looking for in a house. If your in need of an amazing realtor that genuinely cares and gets the job done then I suggest contacting Michelle Distefano ~ Robert Ellis
    Michelle was great in helping my wife and I find a house in Cape Coral. We are a Canadian family that was looking for a house in the Fort Myers region. We could not come in person to visit the houses so Michelle took care of everything. She gave us video tours of each house we wanted to look at and this was very valuable to us since you don¿t get the full picture of a house by simply looking at the pictures. Michelle would also research the area we were looking into and tell us about the services and the schools that our son could potential be going to. In today¿s market promptness is essential to get the house we wanted. When we saw the listing we reached out to Michelle in the evening. Within minutes she was in contact with us to see our availability and she got us the first visit the following day. We loved the house and with Michelle¿s help had an offer within hours of seeing the house. There were multiple offers and with Michelle advise we were able to make the winning offer. Michelle was also amazing with everything following the acceptance of our offer. From arranging the inspection and staying the whole day with him to finding different insurance companies and all the other utilities and services we might need or use. Another thing she did that we really appreciated is that she sent us a list of companies and people to contact upon closing to transfer the services over to us. The list included phone numbers, website and detailed instructions what we need for the transfer. Since we did not know Florida well enough she has guided us and gave us all the information we needed. We are so happy that we chose Michelle as our agent. She made buying our first home in Florida a truly enjoyable experience. ~ Angela Tamborra & James Bastian, Montreal Quebec
    Dear Michelle: We are extremely satisfied with your professionalism and performance since the beginning of the process of selling our property. Our exchange of information and decision making procedures was fast and effective. The way you conducted the interaction process between the parts, seller/prospective buyers/ title company, was very dynamic and efficient. We were always offered all the possible options with solid foundation to make the appropriate decisions. We definitely will use and recommend your professional services whenever the opportunity arises. Proceed with that line of professional conduct and professionalism for your personal career and enrichment. Thank you! ~ Guilherme Lulsdorf ( Southwest Florida Premier Investments LLC)
    Michelle is by far the absolute best realtor I have ever dealt with. 100% professional and the follow through is dependable and thorough. ~ E Kear
    Michelle Distefano did it again! The best agent who make us as a seller/buyer feel like we are her only client. Takes care of everything! Another successful sale and purchase with Michelle. Michelle is the ONLY agent we would ever use as she has been our go to agent and we always recommend to others. ~ Janet and Pat Flanigan, Cape Coral, FL
    Michelle is our family real estate professional. She has helped us and our daughter/son in law buy and sell all of our homes, and she is the best! Michelle made this purchase easy and had great communication with us and the sellers to make sure everything went smoothly. She looked out for us to find us the perfect home to fit our needs. Excellent service. We will now be listing the home we will be selling with her. ~ Janet and Pat Flanigan Cape Coral, FL
    Michelle DiStefano is extremely knowledgeable, honest, has a deep level of integrity and really cares about finding the perfect home for her clients no matter how long it takes. Michelle is always truly professional and always does the right thing. Michelle is a gem. I could tell that she loves her job and it showed every step of the way. Michelle is not only a great realtor, but a great person. I truly enjoyed working with Michelle. I am usually not one to write recommendations, but there are not enough great things to say about Michelle. ~ Vanessa M. -New Jersey
    We were buying from out of town. Michelle was very prompt in conducting a virtual walk through which she did very well. She was great at answering any questions and encouraged us to ask as many as we needed. She assisted us in obtaining a home inspection and insurance connection. She was helpful and prompt during the offer and continued to be helpful during the entire purchase/closing/signing process. During the virtual walk through we discovered a problem with a roller shutter, she was very quick to make several calls and resolved the issue immediately. Michelle was proactive, visited the condo on several occasions for us and was extremely helpful. She was always helpful, pleasant and very encouraging in having us ask questions. Her demeanor was such that we felt confident in her doing a good job for us. I think I have already covered Michelle's performance. She did a wonderful job and we would use her again and recommend her to anyone else looking for a real estate agent in the area. ~ Everett & Jessica Gard
    It was a great experience for us to be supported by Michelle and the whole process was too quick and she found us the house we were looking for. I highly recommend Michell DiStefano ~ Jenny Marsy Lucena
    We really enjoyed working with Michelle. Michelle was very patient with us as our primary home is not in Florida and live out of state fulltime. We had to work through email and text which she was very prompt at answering all of our questions over the two year period we worked with Michelle to find our perfect home away from home in paradise. ~ Tom and Stacy Henderson. St James City, FL
    Being out of town buyers, Michelle's knowledge of the area and market conditions were critical to us. She exceeded our expectations and we are now happy land owners. We are currently working with Michelle on the purchase of our new construction home and could not be more thrilled with her professionally and personally! We highly recommend Michelle to anyone who wants a great buying (or selling) experience! ~ Beverly and Robert Hammond, Chicago Suburbs, IL and Cape Coral, FL
    Michelle is my friend for life. ~ george sarkisian galt ontario canada

    Very friendly At all times I received advice from Michelle All my questions were answered Is the best ~ Felix Gonzalez
    We heard about Michelle through a very good friend, it was our first time buying a house, so we didn't know anything about the process, she was very professional from day 1, that gave us a good feeling to go with her. She was always open to show us houses. Our main thing was trying to get some assistance from the seller toward the closing costs, she actually talked about us with seller, telling him we were a young couple with a kid and that we felt in love with the house as soon as we saw it. The seller agreed with giving us the help with needed it, and now thanks to Michelle we have our dream house. Can't thank enough for everything she did for us. ~ Jorge Cabrera
    Michelle went above and beyond, showing us homes from North Ft Myers to Port Charlotte. She spent hours answering our questions and concerns. I highly recommend Michelle, shes incredibly knowledgeable and made everything easy to understand. ~ Susan Alonso and Aurelio Baroniel
    Michelle DiStefano was wonderful to work with!! It started with her willingness to show us several rentals while we decided if we wanted to buy or build. Knowing we were new to the area she made many suggestions of things to do in the area. We ultimately decided to buy a lot and she quickly set up a search database to email us when something became available. We encountered a few hurdles during the close on the lot one we ended up choosing. She was on top of it every step of the way. Even returning a phone call on a Saturday, while she and her daughter participated in a beach cleanup. She is passionate about her job and she did everything to ensure our closing took place. I feel Michelle did for us what she would do for a close family member or friend and I believe shell do the exact same for you! ~ Darcy Rothenbuehler, Cape Coral

    Michelle Distefano was great to us, throughout the entire process. From the start, I had a number of boxes I wanted to check; but I knew that every one wasn't possible for the budget I wanted to stay under. Michelle was great at trying to find houses that really highlighted a number of items on my list. She was very attentive to what I wanted, and avoided showing me houses that were over my budget or didn't have a number of items on my must-have list. Throughout our search, Michelle showed us a large number of houses, was very patient and helpful with all of my questions and any concerns I had, as well as with how picky I was about certain things. Her communication was excellent! Not to mention, we have a 5 year old, and he that came with us to a number of showings. Michelle was great with him (she even remembered his birthday and got him a little present! -- Big thank you for that!). Michelle was recommended through an acquaintance of ours/colleague of Michelle's, who works more in the Naples area, Kendra Hoefs. This was my first home purchase, and it went very smoothly. I'm very happy Kendra recommended Michelle. Working with Michelle was very enjoyable, and she made finding an incredible home very enjoyable. She even reached out a few times after closing to check in and see how things were going. I would recommend Michelle to anybody looking to buy a house in Cape Coral. Her knowledge of the different neighborhoods/areas and thoroughness around each house we wanted to see was great. All in all, 14/10. Would recommend! Thank you, Michelle! ~ Matthew Rampolla
    Michelle went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable with our purchase. We live in VA and were purchasing a vacation home in SWFL. She made sure we had all contact information to get our water, electric and other utilities switched over to our ownership seamlessly. She was VERY helpful in putting us in contact with contractors for the repairs that would need to be done and for maintenance on the pool and yard services. She also helped us with getting our insurance needs met and just all around general questions we had about anything, really. She was very accessible and always very patient with all our questions! ~ Ritchie Keene, Cedar Bluff Virginia

    Michelle is a very dependable professional realtor. She worked with us for nearly a year to find the ideal property. We always felt she had her best interest at heart. The follow up was great all questions were answered and timely fashion. She was always prepared for the showings having researched each property in depth. Michelle made a great experience finding our retirement home. ~ Chuck Blackburn St. Louis Missouri
    Went way beyond , to help find good local vendors and people like insurance , and painters. ~ Dave Read , Orlando Fl.
    We chose Michelle because as our neighbor she had sold another house in the neighborhood and we felt with her local knowledge, straight forward approach, helpfulness and Century 21 backing that she was the ideal person for our listing.. She handled the entire sale from initial promotion to final closing in an efficient and professional manner which we feel expedited the sale of our house. An offer was made within two days of the listing which is a credit to Michelle's promotion of the property. In other words, she did a great job for us.. Michelle was friendly, helpful, professional and knowledgeable throughout the entire listing and sale and we could not be happier with her representation. ~ Richard Elwell, Venice, FL
    Ella es una persona además de profesional en su trabajo es muy atenta y lo atiende a uno sin prisa. Felicidades ~ Carlos ledesma
    My friend of 38yrs Carrie Obeso who is also with your company knowing that she was not able to help us in the area we wanted to retire to recommend Michelle to us. My husband and myself were wearied at 1st because we only had 1 week to find our forever home and it would be with a stranger not my friend. Well Michele blew it out of the park since our 1st conversation, I cant tell you how comfortable I felt talking with her about all of my needs and wants and dealing limitted time. I never thought in a million years that it would happen but it did! Michelle is truly I think the best agent we could have dreamed of. She cares about her clients to a level that Ive never seen before , her patients is unbelievable her knowledge of the area we wanted , was dead on!

    Here are some of the reasons I highly recommend Michelle DiStefano: Selling a home can be such a stressful process, but Michelle worked in a way that made things go smoothly. I never felt as though I needed to check in to see if she was working hard for me because she always kept me informed as to how things were going and everything that she was doing to help my house sell. She's honest - what she said she'd do, she did. Whenever I contacted her, she replied quickly and gave me the exact answer I was looking for. She explained complex real estate terms and procedures in ways that were easy to understand. I trusted her expertise and advice. Starting from the listing to the sale of my house, everything went perfectly. I highly recommend Michelle! ~ C. Spinelli, Rochester, NY
    Michelle has been our "go to" realtor for our whole family. This is our 4th transaction with her in this area due to her knowledge. She even helped by recommending a realtor in Orlando for a vacation home for us. Total coverage from beginning to end was excellent. Always easy to reach and answer any questions. ~ Janet and Pat Flangian Cape Coral, FL
    Michelle acted as both the seller and buyer's agent. She helped the sellers understand the market and was instrumental in getting the deal done. She also did an excellent job of balancing the needs of the sellers with the needs of the buyer. Michelle answered all of our questions in a very timely manner. She kept us updated via text, e-mail and phone calls throughout the entire process. We are from CT and were driving around the area looking at houses. We saw the "For Sale" sign with Michelle's name. We called and she responded immediately. Met us at the house within an hour so we could look at the home. We have called other agents in the past who were not as responsive. ~ Julia O'Leary, Connecticut/Cape Coral, FL
    When you need someone that will be honest, professional and go out of there way Michelle is the perfect person you should choose to list any or all properties. Thanks to her she sold 2 vacant lots plus our home and all in Cape Coral within 5 months at our price that we wanted. ~ Walter/Cape Coral FL
    The best!!! Michelle has been with us every step of the way: dreaming it, her finding it, her closing it! We were looking for a very specific area/street near our daughter.

Michelle is very knowledgeable at what she does and makes selling any property easy along with having no worries. ~ Walter Kefauver
    3 years ago I purchased a property with who, at the time was my girlfriend. Due to personal issues, we ended up having to sell. Michelle DiStefano was very patient with us in this process as we (co owner and I) had occasional discrepancies and contradictions in our decisions. As I mentioned before, my experience with Michelle was such that I asked to help me find a new place to buy. ~ Sebastian Enriquez. Fort Myers, FL.
