"She was awesome!!! I've been in sales and purchasing for years now. Not once at all did I get the feeling she was just trying to sell us something. I got a genuine vibe from her that she wanted us to find the right home for us that made sense for our budget. Very quickly she got an idea of what we were looking for and what we weren't. Very knowledgeable about the process that was foreign to my fiance and I. Relieved a lot of anxiety for us knowing that this person cared about finding the best fit for us. She always responded to our emails, texts very quickly. She worked with our busy work schedules, and made any time she had for us, that's including weekends in some cases. Good customer service is hard to find these days, and she exceeded all expectations we had. We love our home, and were very happy Michaela was the person to make that happen for us. Would (and already have) recommend her to anyone we know that's looking for a house. It's a very stressful process and she made it very exciting for us. Hickok and Boardman really have a great team of professionals. I can't speak enough to the level of genuine customer service we received. That's was very important to us. She was very professional and charismatic. After it was done we felt like we gained a friend. Thanks Michaela and Hickok and Boardman for helping us find our first home. More importantly thanks for caring."

"I came to Michaela as a first time home buyer and could not be happier that I chose her to represent me. She was very helpful in explaining the whole process (because I was clueless) and always answered all of my questions. Anytime i was interested in a home she was quick with her response in setting up appointments and getting information about the listing. Very responsive to texting/calling and will work with your bank/lawyer/seller's realtor to make sure everything is on schedule! She also knows the area very very well. You can tell this is what she loves to do and it shows!"
Travis & Casey
"My wife and I bought a house in Essex Junction in June of 2015. Michaela Quinlan was our agent and we loved her. She is bright, cheerful, and efficient. She patiently showed us many homes until we fell for the house we bought. Due to Michaela¿s efforts, the settlement process was painless for us, which we really appreciated. If you are looking for a home in the Burlington area, call Michaela first."
Ted & Patty
"Michaela was an excellent real estate agent. She happily showed me many properties I thought I'd be interested in (including those she probably knew I wouldn't like, but wanted me to see as many as possible to make a well-informed decision). She ended up finding me a property that I would've overlooked as it didn't have every single criteria I had initially wanted. I'm so glad I looked at the one she found because I bought it and couldn't be happier. It ended up being a better choice than any of the ones I had thought I'd be interested in. One of the best things about the process was not having to schedule any of the showings. She knew my schedule and just told me where to be and when. It certainly made my life that much easier not having to do all of the time-consuming work of organizing and setting up showings. When it came time to do the negotiations and closing, Michaela was on it through the entire process. I didn't have to stress about anything as she went to work on my behalf to get me the best price. When my initial lender informed us that they couldn't close as soon as the seller needed us to, Michaela quickly brought someone else in and made it happen by the time the sellers needed to close. If it weren't for her speed in getting things moving, I would've lost out on the property as there was another buyer ready to go. I felt completely comfortable at the closing and throughout the entire process knowing that Michaela had my back and that she knew exactly what she was doing. I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants a responsive, friendly, and informed real estate agent."
"We are very happy in our new home! The lake, bike path, and shopping are always close. The neighbors are welcoming, our neighborhood is quiet at night, and there is a nice lake breeze in the evening.
We want to thank you very much for always providing prompt and expert answers to our many questions about homes in Burlington. Your extensive knowledge and first hand experience with the Queen City was invaluable to us after watching the housing market here for the past couple of years. It was fun to inspect the houses together and you had a good eye for the strong and weak points of the properties we looked at. You saved us a lot of time in the home buying process. We enjoyed working with you!"
- Kate & William
"Michaela must be a rising star on the real estate scene in Burlington, VT. First of all she responded promptly and professionally on my request for service. She then precisely understood my family's need and helped us through the search process for a condo. When we found what we were looking for Michaela went beyond what we expected helping out with negotiations and all steps to get us to the closing table.
Michaela related well to 2 generations of our family so we all felt we received great service.
Working with Michaela was a really great experience. She made the process easier because she was constantly followed up and always went out of her way to give advice."
"No doubt about it, for a first time home buyer, the process is overwhelming. Michaela was extremely informative and willing to teach us about every step along the way to our closing date. Anything she was unsure about, she got answers fast, we immediately felt she was part of a very tight and experienced family at H&B. She made herself accessible to us, and even with other clients on her table she took the time to make us feel like we were her only focus. I have already suggested her to friends who are in the same position we were in and would not hesitate to point anyone in her direction again and again."
-Liam & Carissa
"Our family worked with Michaela to buy our home in Burlington's New North End, and we would do it again in a second! Michaela''s incredibly helpful, and she knows the local market. The process was a breeze from beginning to end due to her calm, but fun personality!"
-Kim & Steve
"My favorite part of working with Michaela was searching for my new home. She made sure that we looked at each property that came on the market within my search criteria, which helped me hone in on the features I did (and more importantly did not) want. She is always very organized, professional and knowledgeable about the market and procedure, which made for an easier and more enjoyable process. When we had to abruptly change mortgage brokers right before my initial closing date (due to extenuating circumstances within the association), she jumped through hoops to work magic and ultimately close the deal. Michaela kept me informed and up to date on each development to alleviate the stress and anxiety. Michaela was wonderful to work with, I was very lucky to have her on my side!"
"Michaela helped us find our first house this past summer. She was wonderful throughout the entire process. From the beginning she understood exactly what we were looking for, always very easy to communicate with. Whenever a new house came on the market she was immediately available to schedule a showing. As soon as we found ¿our home¿ we knew it and Michaela took the necessary steps to speed along the buying process. Ted and I were very pleased with our experience with Michaela and know that other home buyers will feel the same way."
- Jessica & Ted
"Michaela is responsive, professional, caring, smart, and has forged great relationships in the industry. She recommended contractors for little projects and has kept in touch after the sale to make sure everything is going well. That says a lot about the kind of person she is -- she's about finding the right fit for the buyer, not just making a sale and moving on.
I highly recommend calling Michaela if you're looking for someone to help guide you through the process, address your concerns, and help you seal the deal in this very competitive housing market."
"Michaela was a very responsive Realtor to work with; returning calls and answering questions immediately. She is very knowledgeable about the local market and her advice about pricing and showing our home was right on. She is friendly and it was a pleasure to work with her to sell our home."
"Michaela assisted us as our realtor this past summer as we were in the process of purchasing our first home. From the beginning, Michaela was responsive to our needs, listened to exactly what we were looking for, and was at all times extremely professional. She did a wonderful job answering all of our questions throughout the process; as we were first time home buyers, there were many! Throughout the negotiation process, Michaela did a great job and was able to alleviate our anxiety. She always respected our wishes and made sure to communicate information with us quickly and thoroughly. Our closing process was a bit complicated, but thanks to Michaela, everything worked out well in the end! We would recommend her without reservation. To summarize, Michaela is great and you will be in great hands working with her!"
- Andrew & Larissa
"I met Michaela after inquiring about one of her property listings on Realtor.com and from the beginning was impressed by her knowledge and friendly, upbeat attitude.Throughout what was at times a stressful process of selling and buying she worked very hard, remained steadfast and never gave up, all while ensuring thatI remained informed. She was accessible at all times and answered any and all questions I had; I truly felt well cared for up until the closing papers were signed.
It is clear that Michaela is talented in many ways from the manner in which she prepared my home to be sold and her ability to vision what my new home could be during our listing tours. Thanks to Michaela, I found my perfect new home and could not be happier. I gained new knowledge, a new friend and it was a pleasure working with her and her team!"
"Michaela worked with us and proved to be a go-getter. After looking at houses for a year, Michaela remained our dedicated agent. She streamlined real estate processes and worked around our demanding scheduling requests. Ultimately, we were able to see our would-be house and put in an offer the first day it was on the market."
- Marcos & Amanda
"I recently purchased a home in the Burlington area, and Michaela was extremely helpful and informative. She arranged multiple showings of the property, and when the time came to make an offer, she helped make sure that the contingencies around the purchase were resolved quickly and smoothly. Michaela made the whole purchase process a very comfortable one, from the first open house all the way through to the closing ¿ working with her and the whole Hickok & Boardman team was a pleasure."
"Upbeat and very friendly are only a couple of words my parents and I would use to describe Michaela Quinlan. I have known Michaela outside of her job as a realtor for years, but this was the first time I had worked with her. It has now been a year since Michaela helped my parents become property owners in Burlington, VT. They are proud owners of a great duplex located in the south-end. When my parents found the listing on South property they were drawn to it, I contacted Michaela and she promptly responded. After we were shown the property, just one walk through and we knew this was the one!Michaela helped us to point out the bonus features of the investment and what it could look like with a little love. She is very familiar with the Burlington market and because of that she was very helpful with any references we needed.I have now been living in the duplex for almost a year, and I could not be happier! I have views of the lake and mountains out my windows, the porch is fantastic, and our tenants are also very happy with their space. With Michaela as our Realtor we know that if we have any questions she will be quick to respond, honest, and happy to help! Thank you!!"
- Lisa, Thomas & Lauren
"As a couple, we felt that Michaela was accommodating and flexible and educated us about housing market, home ing process and the like.
She was also a ton of fun, which only made us want to look at houses more often! In the end, we looked at almost 40 homes but we are so happy with our final decision and know that we made the right choice."
- Jon & Leah
"As a first time home buyer, with little knowledge of the market in Burlington it was very helpful working with a realtor as enthusiastic and knowledgeable of the area as Michaela. As time was an issue and my schedule was demanding, Michaela took the time to find me the house in the area that matched my interests. It was a pleasure to work with someone so helpful and fun."
"We want to say working with Michaela on selling our house was the greatest. She made sure we had nothing to do but watch her list the home; set up showings, market the home and get it sold. If we had any questions we called and she got back to us promptly. She talked to the people interested in the house and was able to set things in motion for a sale. We had nothing to work on, she had all the paper work together and the closing went fast with little work for us. We now live in Florida and are enjoying the sunshine. Thanks to Michaela and Coldwell Banker; you have a great sales lady and we hope you know that! We will recommend Coldwell Banker to our friends who might be looking for a new home and also recommend Michaela as the sales person to talk to. Thank you all from the both of us."
- David & Susan
"As a first time home buyer, Michaela educated me and walked me through the entire process in a very welcoming way. She listened to my needs and desires, in turn she found the perfect home for my dogs and I. We look forward to working with her and the Coldwell Banker Hickok & Boardman team on our next property investment."
