Michelle McArdle's Reviews & Ratings

Tell us about your experience with
Michelle McArdle

    • Michelle is a true professional. From the moment she viewed our home- she had numerous suggestions and gave us fantastic guidance. It really worked us we had over 10 offers from the open house. I would recommend her without hesitation and have in fact done so.

      - Linda Pagano, Bellerose Village, NY
    • Michelle, from top to bottom, made our home buying experience as pleasurable as it could possibly be. Not only did she walk us through the process (which was so important as we were first time home buyers), but did so in a way that made us feel like she really cared about our specific needs and well-being. She was always up front and explained all that we needed to know in great detail. I couldn't recommend her strongly enough.

      - Jonathan Macri, Massapequa Park,NY
    • Michelle was engaged to handle the sale of a private residence. In that regard, from the very beginning she demonstrated an excellent knowledge of the real estate market. She laid out a plan and took whatever steps were necessary to keep the process on schedule. Michelle was very timely in responding to any inquiry from me and when responding to anything that came up, particularly something that could delay the process. Her negotiating skills were evident throughout the sale process.

      - Richard Passadin, Floral Park, NY
    • Michelle listed and sold a home for us - and was terrific ! Her advice in preparing the house for sale and her approach to generate interest in the property were "spot on". We also benefited from her proximity to the house and her willingness to schedule and coordinate repairs by meeting contractors at the property - a tremendous help to us. That is, Michelle's contributions went well beyond that of a typical real estate agent and her responsiveness and timely follow-up instilled a feeling of confidence throughout the process. Much thanks to you, Michelle - we are grateful for your efforts.

      - Bill Fisher, South Floral Park,NY
    • Michelle is a highly professional, experienced individual who will make sure your home search goes as smoothly as possible and will always fight in your best interest. We loved working with her and would absolutely recommend her to a friend or anyone we know who's looking for a new home in the future!

      - Joe Metzler, Levittown, NY
    • I have worked with Michelle on several accasions. I have found her to be one of the hardest working people I have ever met. She listed my house in Floral Park. She staged it, took the best pictures, did an open house as many times as I wanted. Held my hand every step of the way.Michelle also worked with me buying our present home in Floral Pk, She gave me wonderful advice and walked me through every step of the way. Her local real estate knowledge, negotiation skills and integrity are highly commendable. I know when she tells me something, that it is honest and truthful to the best of her knowledge. She is a wonderful person and a terrific broker. Monica McInerney

    • Michelle is very simply, a professional. She is experienced, thorough and passionate about her work. Michelle was my real estate agent who I choose to sell my mother's home. The house was sold in less than 2 weeks and we had multiple offers to choose from. If you want an agent who will get the job done, you want Michelle.

      - Patti Carroll, Franklin Square, NY
    • Michelle was extremely professional and hard working when it came to buying and selling our house. She knows the real estate business and her follow up on any issues was very prompt and timely. I will always recommend Michelle!

      - Maureen Patrickakos, Garden City, NY
    • Very personable, straight forward, and takes a vested interest in each one of her clients. Never too busy to answer the phone and/or return emails. Would definitely recommend to friends and family alike.

      - Jesse Heimowitz, Lynbrook, NY
    • I live in NJ and contracted with Michelle for an estate sale in Floral Park. Michelle is knowledgeable, passionate, hardworking, honest and also a just really nice person. I had more than multiple offers (most over asking price) after our first and only open house and Michelle spent as much time as was needed to patiently educate and guide me on the process so I had the tools to make the best decisions. Being I was "geographically challenged", she also helped me secure reputable contractors needed for projects and was at the house when needed. Always promptly returning a call, email or text I would, without reservation, recommend Michelle

      - Annemarie Driscoll, Floral Park, NY
    • If you want someone who puts your interests first and foremost, thats Michelle! She is professional, honest, knowledgeable and hardworking. Even after she found our dream home for us, Michelle continued to stay in touch and assist with reliable local contractors for our needs. Shes top notch in our book!!!

      - Lorraine O'Hanlon, Garden City, NY
    • Michelle was an outstanding agent. She was both professional and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend her. Although not a first time home owner myself, I know Michelle would put someone at ease with what can be an overwhelming experience.

      - Caitlin Sorohan, Garden City, NY
    • My wife and I shopped for our home for two years. Every spare moment and every weekend looking at homes in various Nassau county communities . The whole proses was taking to much time and the various agents at that time weren't finding houses we wanted to see, let alone purchase, they talked about their personal life,over stated their opinions and unprofessional in every aspect, I had given up,then things changed, Michelle McArdle was recommended to us and was available right away, she was friendly, very polite and I was impressed. What I liked most was her professionalism .She got to work immediately. She found a home that we would want to see and we were in love with it. We came up with an offer that she also helped helped us decide. After that, Michelle presented the offer right away. The offer was excepted and we had a closing date, Michelle ended the long time consuming process and had us in our home in two weeks! We love our home and neighborhood and owe it to Michelle McArdle.?????????? Show less

      - Bobby Coyne, Floral Park, NY
    • My wife and I recently bought a house in Nassau County and used Michelle as our buying agent. I cannot say enough positive things about our experience with her. Michelle's experience and ability to be honest, assertive and professional is something that is a rare find and something not to be taken for granted. Her ability to ask us the right (and sometimes difficult) questions is what made us realize what we really wanted from our future home. If it was not for her it would have taken us much longer to find our dream home or we would have mistakenly pulled the trigger on something we would later regret buying.In the convoluted processes and back and forth between lawyers and banks, anytime we heard the ball was in her court we knew things would get done right the first time. Although we knew her schedule was busy with other clients, at every point we felt that we were her top priority any day of the week.We will alway keep her in high regard and make it a point to recommend her to friends and colleagues when discussing our experience in buying a home.

      - Anthony Barracca, Bellmore, NY
    • I choose Michelle because she always listens to what your needs are and makes it happen. She always goes up and beyond and is very supportive from the beginning of the process to the end. I could not of asked for anyone more better to fit the role. Thank you so much for getting me into the house I desired.

      - Matthew Pores, Mineola, NY
    • We listed our house during the Christmas holiday. She was able to set up an open house within one week. We had over 30 people coming, and seven offers. She handled all aspects of the closing in a very professional manner. Could not have been more satisfied with our d is ion to hire Michelle

      - Tina Cirri, Island Park, NY
    • Michele McArdle is the consummate professional. She is extremely knowledgeable about the market, great at negotiating, hard working and personable. I inherited a house in an area about which I knew little. She patiently educated me about the market and the marketing process. She has an impressive ability to attract buyers and enlist the aid of other Real Estate professionals to provide a successful outcome for her client. She goes the extra mile in all aspects of the process: mortgage approvals, legal requirements, etc.. She is always there when you need her. If you want to work with a master craftswoman, and you should, call Michelle McArdle.

      - Ronald Panzarella, Elmont, NY
    • I found Michelle on Zillow, saw the glowing reviews and took a chance. It turned out to be one of the best decisions I've ever made. She negotiated the sale of our first home like a true professional - frankly, it was awe inspiring. It made us feel so comfortable to know that we had Michelle to guide us through every step of the process. Working with her was a dream - she was always punctual, polite, professional and knowledgeable. She always responded to our questions quickly and thoughtfully. I will ALWAYS recommend Michelle to anyone who needs a realtor, without reservation!

      - Ryan Christiansen, Mineola,NY
    • Michelle helped us find and purchase our dream house in the perfect location in a very competitive market. She is unbelievably knowledgeable and I feel having Michelle as our realtor truly gave us the competitive edge we needed to get our house. Working with her was a breeze - she was always on time, always professional, and always pleasant. In the future, I will always recommend her without hesitation to anyone who needs a realtor!

      - Christina Christiansen, Merrick, NY
    • Michelle Mcardle went above and beyond to sell our home in Elmont.. Her guidance on staging, photography, and listing details really showcased our property.

      - Pattie Seunarine, Elmont, NY
    • I was charged with selling a relative's 2 family home. I lwas overwhelmed and live in NJ. Michelle was just what I needed. She explained everything, answered all my questions, offered to personally help me clear out the home and let in service people so I didn't need to take time off work! She gave me the gentle push I needed to get the home ready. Wonderful experience.

      - Barbara Wade, Floral Park, NY

    • Michelle was an incredible realtor. She went above and beyond the expectant duties of a realtor. We moved out of our house a few weeks early to head to our new home across the country. Before closing on our NY house, there was a flood on our basement. Michelle and her husband, Steve, help with everything. They were there to let contractors in, clean up crew in. They did everything.

As first time buyers, at every step of the way, she made sure to check-in with us so that we were well prepared. Even after we completed the purchase, she continued to check-in with us periodically to ensure that things were going well.

      - Samantha Li, Mineola, NY
    • Michelle made my purchasing experience seamless! She was clear and thorough from the beginning of the process up until the end. An absolute pleasure to work with, thank you for making first time home buying easy Michelle.

      - Alexa Fenique, Mineola, NY
    • Michelle was a pleasure to work with. When I interviewed her in late 2019 I knew she was the realtor I wanted to work with to sell my home. We had several acceptable offers after the first weekend of open houses in early 2020, and went into contract very quickly. Michelle stuck with us and gave us updates throughout the process as there were many delays due to the covid-19 pandemic, but we finally closed! I would definitely recommend Michelle to anyone looking for a realty in Nassau County.

      - Sophie Moundas, Mineola, NY
    • Buying your first home can be scary but Michelle made the process so easy. She was extremely knowledgable in all facets of real estate and was always able to provide me with information. She took out the extra time to meet with me and go over all paperwork and was always available by phone as well. I could not have had a better experience!

      - Dana Aragona, Hempstead, NY
    • I cant say enough about this energetic, well informed and accomplished Real Estate Professional.

Michelle continues to provide me with professional advice and coaching in real estate purchasing, leasing and sales. Michelle is always there to answer any questions and never forgets to return a call or answer any questions with professional results. Michelle is and always will be my GO TO Real Estate Professional.

      - Steve Somma, Mineola, NY

      - Bill Natalie, New Hyde Park, NY
    • Michelle has excellent credentials and experience in my local market and it was a pleasure working with her. We listed just as NY went into Phase 2 of Covid-19 reopening and within a week I had a verbal agreement on a purchase price - impressive! It took several months to close, but that was largely due to the building's resident approval process and attorney back-and-forth. Throughout the process, Michelle was always available to answer questions and help follow-up. I would definitely recommend her for any real estate needs you have.

      - Charles Kohl, Mineola, NY
    • Almost 10 years ago Michelle helped us find our perfect first home. Throughout the years she was always there to work with us when we thought we needed something different as our family grew. She provided guidance and reassurance. When the time finally came to sell our first home Michelle was so helpful and supportive. Even during an unprecedented time, Covid-19, Michelle guided us step by step and her instincts always prevailed. Do not hesitate to work with Michelle. She is honest, hardworking and communicates well. She will not let you down. She will keep your best interests in mind and is nothing short of professional.

      - Renee Jakymec, Bellerose Village, NY
    • Michelle was great to work with. She is not a lazy agent. She works hard and puts effort in all of the tasks that were involved in the sale of my house. I was an out of state owner and she provided so many services that meant I didn't to keep traveling to the house for all remodeling that wa done. Michelle met subcontractors and gave me recommendations and contacts. She was able to virtually stage the house even during these challenging COVID-19 times when there we no open houses. Michelle is amazing. You can't miss with her skills.

      - Bruce Cody, Bellerose Village, NY
    • I had such a great experience with Michelle! Shes honest, patient, knowledgeable, and such a kind person. She helped answer all of my questions and walked me through the coop application process so that I could move in as quickly as possible. I would highly recommend her!!

      - Matt Klein, Mineola, NY
    • We had a great experience working with Michelle to buy our first home. Michelle was available to answer our questions about the process, go to open houses with us and put in offers on several homes. When we finally found the right one and got our offer accepted, Michelle provided us with excellent advice for negotiation in home price and we got our home at the price we wanted to pay. She was also very helpful in giving advice with choosing a lender and helping us get through the long closing process. Thanks for helping us find our home we couldn't be happier!

      - Corrine Markovich, Plainview, NY
    • Working with Michelle made the process of selling our house simple! Michelle was readily available to answer our questions and also gave us insight into the home selling process. She does her research, knows the market well, and is attentive to details. As soon as our home was listed, it had offers- which was super helpful as we were looking to move ASAP and have a one year old, so absolutely no time to waste. It is very clear that Michelle has a very strong work ethic, which my husband and I both noticed and greatly appreciated.

      - Vanessa Davis, New Hyde Park, NY

      - Dominica Velez, Floral Park, NY
    • Michelle made a very difficult move for my parents much easier. She took her time explaining the process and walked us through every step to help my parents gradually downsize. She never rushed us and was very understanding of not only the physical stress but the emotional stress of moving. I couldnt have asked for a better partner!

      - Susan Fazio, Bellerose NY
