This is an easy review to write. If you want a highly responsive agent with a deep knowledge base, Mikhail is your guy. His reputation & solid mental fortitude makes him an obvious choice. Wilton, Weston, & Norwalk were all the areas we looked at. I felt at ease with his guidance in all 3. I plan to work with him again in the future. Jordan Wright
Mikhail is a great realtor and an unbelievable person. Mikhail helped me purchase my first home. This man not only negotiated prices, showed me properties, and ensured that I met specific deadlines, he also walked me through the entire home buying process. Mikhail went above and beyond to make sure that I was at ease and understood everything I was doing. I hope to always stay in touch with Mikhail and keep him updated with the renovations I do to my new home.

 
TREV LINE

Mikhail Faifman is an exceptional real estate agent, with extensive knowledge of the Fairfield County area and real estate. From day one, he has been very responsive—whether it was early in the morning or in the evenings.

My husband and I are first-time homeowners thanks to Mikhail and his trusted network of professionals. He helped us navigate through the complicated process of purchasing a foreclosure, from winning the multiple offers bidding war to successfully closing in a record 30-day time frame.

We absolutely recommend him!
