Michele Lilly is amazing. Responsive to all needs and wants, and always willing to go the extra mile to make sure her clients are happy. Having lived in the area her entire life, she knows the area like the back of her hand, which really helped us on our search. She adds honesty and personality, two characteristics not normally seen in real estate, to what can be a very stressful process. We love Michele!

Michele Lilly is truly the consummate realtor, a real gem in Scarsdale. After living in the city for almost 20 years, we looked into Westchester to continue raising our family and were referred to Michele by two different sources unrelated to one another so we knew it was meant to be! As a long time resident of Scarsdale, Michele is not only a highly experienced real estate professional but also a trustworthy and financially savvy one. She knew how to get us the best deal on our Fox Meadow home. We feel that we couldn’t have transitioned better to the suburbs, without her help, from start to finish! Anyone would be fortunate to work with Michele, as she truly has your best interests at heart. -
M&A -  Scarsdale

We were very pleased to have Michele Lilly as our sales agent for the Scarsdale house. She is very reliable and a top-notch sales agent with many years of experience. Thanks to her professional work, we were able to sell our house at a higher price than we initially expected. If anyone is going to sell a house, ask Michele. She is the one who can really make a difference. We would like to highly recommend her.

Michele not only found our current home, but sold our last home in Scarsdale and rented our investment condo in Pelham! We found her assessment of current market conditions to be especially intuitive, and no matter which side of the transaction she represented, her attention to detail made the inspection, financing, rental and closing processes run smooth as silk. If you're looking for a realtor to represent you as seller or buyer, you'd be hard pressed to find someone as hardworking, knowledgeable and easy to work with as Michele Lilly.

S.L. - White Plains

Michele guided our family through the sale of our parents Scarsdale house with smart analysis of the market and compassion to the family as our parents moved out of their home of 45 years. Her suggestions for price and presentation; her management of the photography, open house, and even her listing description were incredibly well done. The house was in contract in a week and then successfully closed.  She offered valuable insight on the quality of the multiple offers. She was a fair and honest intermediary as we negotiated with the buyer. Our family is very appreciative of how easy and pleasant Michele made what can be a very stressful experience.

Michele Lilly is a hard working, reliable and knowledgeable agent.  We spent many months looking for a house and during that time she was always patient, responded quickly to our many questions and gave us honest advice. Even after buying the house Michele continued to be an invaluable resource of information about the town/school.  I wouldn’t hesitate to work with her again.

Michele helped us buy our home in Scarsdale in 2014. She's very knowledgeable about the area and gives pretty accurate price estimate. She's patient and will give you all the info you need without being pushy. In our transaction, there were some complications about the CO and Michele went down to the village hall and spoke to the inspector in order to help us understand its implications. I have recommended Michele to all my friends who want to buy houses in this area. 
 
Z.S. - Scarsdale

Michele was a joy to work with.  She was able to sell our house within a short period of time and also assisted us in the purchase of a rental property.  Her intimate knowledge of the market in Westchester allowed her to give sound and fruitful advice and her service was invaluable.  Both my wife and I really enjoyed working with her.

Michele Lilly is professional, hard working, honest and very knowledgeable about the Scarsdale real estate market and surrounding towns.  I have known her for more than 10 years and have worked with her to both purchase and sell a property in Scarsdale. She provided a high level of service and expertise and was very responsive to questions or concerns.  I was confident that she had my family's best interests in mind as she represented us throughout these transactions.  She was never pushy and is a very good listener. Michele has very good judgment and is a trustworthy person.  Also important is that Michele is personable and warm and spending time with her is easy and fun. I have recommended her to friends without hesitation and would definitely work with her again myself.

Michele was fantastic through out the whole process.  Michele is reliable, smart, straight-forward and patient.  She is forthright and knows how to meet the specific needs of her client with sensitivity and discretion.  She went above and beyond to sell my house.  Michele is class act and I would use her again personally as well as recommend her to anyone.

N & J

Michele was a great partner in our search to find somewhere OUTSIDE Scarsdale. Older couples whose children have been through the excellent Scarsdale schools and are seeking alternatives are a growing demographic. Obviously knowledgeable about the Scarsdale market, Michele was prepared to spend time educating herself about other areas such as Harrison, White Plains, New Rochelle and the Rivertowns. She was patient in our long search and worked with us through a number of broken deals and failed inspections. Michele works very well with other brokers and was firm but polite in her negotiations. We felt Michele really cared about finding the right situation for us rather than getting to the quickest result and moving on to the next client. Highly recommended by a trusted retired Scarsdale realtor, Michele definitely did a great job for us.

S & S

We are so lucky to have Michele Lilly as our realtor when we were house hunting in 2017.  Michele made a normally stressful search into a manageable, straightforward process with her warm, easy-going demeanor, attentiveness, and sage advice.  Her experience and knowledge of the real estate market in the neighborhood is based on her many years of experience as a Westchester county agent, having lived in this area her whole life.  Michele listened attentively to our checklist of desired house characteristics and was so dedicated to finding our dream home, going above and beyond at finding leads for us. This included going to the town hall to check zoning and other land details, following up with sellers, checking and rechecking listings, and even looking up local news surrounding the property — all without prompting (which, should be how realtors function regardless, but we’ve worked with a few realtors in the past who were definitely not this way!). Michele is a strong ally when working with selling agents; we always felt she was our best advocate and could guide us well in the negotiations process from her many years of experience. We had a great time looking at homes with her, so much so that we invited her to be in House Hunters with us! Thus, another bonus is that Michele Lilly is a natural television starlet —  She made our House Hunters’ televisión experience amazing! Finally and most importantly, we love our house and know we will be happy here for many many years to come.

Michele is an incredible real estate agent who knows Edgemont and Scarsdale inside out. Our expectations of realtors were exceeded as Michele was caring, savvy, honest and an overall pleasure to work with. She made sure our deals went as smoothly as possible. We are fortunate enough to have worked with Michele various times over many years on spec homes as well as other housing projects in Edgemont and Scarsdale. We consider her a part of our team and look forward to working with her on our future  real estate endeavors.

Michele Lilly was the perfect agent for us as first time co-op buyers.  My son was buying the co-op apartment for me, and he was living abroad and had limited time to fly over for viewings.  She was able to maximize the showings on any given trip. Michele listened to all our concerns and guided us towards the desired area we wished to buy into.  She navigated us through the co-op board process, directed us to an excellent real estate lawyer and made the process run smoothly to completion.  Michele listens, advises with a pleasant, winning personality.  I have no reservations in recommending her to others seeking a good buying experience with ultimately satisfying results.

I have known Michele Lilly for more than 15 years. She has advised me (and my parents) on numerous residential and investment real estate purchases, sales and rentals over this time. Her knowledge of the Scarsdale market and surrounding areas has been invaluable. She is driven yet honest and more concerned with my ‘bottom line’ than hers. There is no real estate agent I would recommend more highly than her.

Michele is the trust-able person we always comfortable to go to get a quick and correct response.  She is available all the time when we need her. In the end, Michele helped us to get our current home. Her service does not end up here and she continues to help us with all kinds of information we need. Overall, our experience with Michele was pleasant and we would like to highly recommend her to our friends.

K & C

Michele helped us find our house in the tough Scarsdale market almost seven years ago. We were first-time homebuyers moving from NYC and she guided us throughout the entire process — literally from deciding which neighborhood to pursue through the closing and beyond. Michele lives in the community so I know her insights are real. Since then, she has stayed in touch with my family and has taken the time to show us many other homes as we contemplate a move within the neighborhood. Michele knows exactly what are are looking for and only reaches out to me when she believes that something will catch my eye. I can rely on her candid and informed opinion and I’m always happy to see her name in my inbox.

We had the great fortune to work with Michele 4 years ago when we were looking to move our family from NYC to Westchester. We can’t speak highly enough of the care and attention Michele gave to us as we visited homes across towns. She was patient, incredibly warm and responsive, and extremely Knowledgeable! It was a complete pleasure working with her!!

Michele has lived in the Scarsdale School District, with her family, for decades! Both of her children have gone through the Scarsdale Public School system - with each child having a unique experience. She also has an older sister who lives with her family in Scarsdale - and between the two of them, they have personally purchased and sold several Scarsdale School District homes. Michele knows how to sell homes, and knows how to help buyers who are new to Scarsdale, and whose children will be attending the Public Schools.

From the start to the finish, she very easy to work with....she immediately got to know our family and quickly determined the houses and neighborhoods that were the best for us.

Michele was so helpful when we were relocated to the NY area! She focused in on the area I liked and scouted out the houses in advance so we only came in to look when there were good ones!

We were lucky to have Michele assisting in purchasing our home in Scarsdale during the move out of state. She was extremely helpful and respected us in our approach during the process. Once we were 100% sure we wanted to buy a house in Scarsdale she was super smart and provided the right  recommendation for us to purchase our home (showed only homes that were ideal for us, recommended us about the offer and following steps to secure it, etc.) Michele is an expert of the area and on the process to get the best deal possible. I am highly recommending Michele to anyone interested in the Scarsdale area.

"Michele is not only wonderful at her job, but is also a wonderful person. As first time homebuyers, Michele was always patient and took the time to answer our many, many questions. Michele was available to show us numerous homes and always carried herself in a professional manner. I would highly recommend Michele, as she goes above and beyond to provide you with the best possible experience when buying a home and is filled with much needed knowledge."

L & D

"Michele was a great realtor to work with, and my husband and I recommend her highly. She's friendly, knowledgeable, and honest; we very much felt like she had our best interests as her priority. She always answered our questions quickly, and was available to show us listings when we had time. She also got to know us as we saw more places and liked/didn't like things about them. In fact, the home we ended up buying was one of the ones she suggested we look at. She's also not pushy - we were first-time home buyers, and it was very important to us that we not feel rushed or pressured into buying a home. Michele was wonderful in that respect, and it was a huge help during the stressful offer/accepted offer stage especially when it's easy to feel like you 'have' to continue due to inertia. Michele made sure we got the time we needed to make our decision, and and also that we knew we could continue looking if something wasn't right for us."

"Michele was incredibly knowledgeable about the areas we were interested in and helped us to determine what were the most important criteria in considering the right house for our family. She took the time to get to know our needs and interests and really ensured we bought a house both that suited our family needs and was in a neighborhood that we would love living in."

M.M.

"I was involved in an unfortunate circumstance where I had to sell my father's home from out of state. Thankfully I found Michele Lilly. After my first phone conversation with her I knew she was the right person for the job. Michele went above and beyond in every aspect. She made sure to be honest with me about the market, the feedback from showings, as well as price adjustment suggestions. Michele made sure to let me know about any possible issues that needed to be addressed and pointed me in the right direction to resolve these issues. Michele recommended a company to come in and get the property ready for the closing and they did not disappoint. If you need to sell or buy a property in the area trust me Michele Lilly is the woman for the job. Without Michele this experience would have been much more stressful than it was. Not only did she do a great job but I also feel that this process created a lifetime friendship."

J & D

Michele is truly top notch. She is friendly and very knowledgeable about the individual houses and the market. She took us to several houses until we ultimately found the house that we wanted to purchase. She also helped get the contract signed before the weekend and was always available to assist us on the way to closing. She even drove us to the Village Hall after we closed! We couldn't recommend her more highly. She is phenomenal and anyone would be lucky to work with her.

"Michele Lilly is a fantastic broker. Moving out of Manhattan was not easy on us and working with Michele made it so much more pleasant than we would have ever thought. Michele had all the knowledgeable answers to all of our many questions - she is a true expert on the area, she knows everything and everyone and will be sure to share the intel with you. That was exacly what we needed along with always available immediate responses throughout the whole process. This being Scarsdale, got into a bit of a bidding war and here again, Michele guided us to the winning bet. So happy to have found her and will absolutely work with her again in the future."
