Michael and Jackie are great! We had the pleasure of working with both. My family and I were purchasing a home but living out of state. This was not a problem for the Ardolino team. Jackie and Michael were able to help us solve problems from a distance. We also really appreciated their references. It was great to know that they only recommend people who are qualified and trustworthy. Great overall experience. We would definitely recommend this team!

We had a great experience with Michael Ardolino and Lisa Godt. They were quick with responses and knew our search area well. From searching to closing, good all around. Any bumps in the road, they were quick and helpful in working them out. Thanks Michael and Lisa.

If you are going to buy or sell your house, Michael Ardolino and his staff are the only way to go. The relationship does not end once your sale has closed. I have personally purchased 2 houses over the last 8 years. My first purchase, Ardolino was the agent representing the seller while i used a friend of the family. I still get holiday cards from team Ardolino for that property. About 3 years ago, we started looking for a bigger house as our family had grown. Jean Guiffre Lavita was our agent who works for Team Ardolino. Her patience, compassion and knowledge of the real estate market helped us to finally find the right home at the right price. We consider Jean a part of our family these days. Most importantly, Michael in my opinion will see to it that your house does not get under sold, and you dont overpay what the market dictates. We just celebrated our 1 year anniversary in our new house and were surprised with a cheesecake personally delivered to the house along with a card. We have been invited to his holiday parties and the attention to detail has proven that the relationship didnt end once they received a commission check. Whether buying or selling, you need this type of representation. Less ... More

I could not have gotten through the sale of my Home without the knowledge & expertise of Michael and his team of professionals. The numerous question & concerns I had along the path to selling my home were never a bother to Michael or his staff. I was never made to feel that any question I had wasn't an important one. Michael or any one of his staff members always got back to me in a timely matter, reducing any anxieties I may have been feeling. Unless you are actually going through a sale of a home, I can't stress enough, Michael & his team are flawless in their process to get you through it all. Thank- you Michael & your well trained Team, for making my experience a great one! Less ... More

Michael and his team were so helpful. The sale of my home was difficult for me; Michael's team helped calm my nervous, answer my questions, and negotiated terms for me to stay a bit longer than the buyers even wanted. I am so thankful for their assistance; they even offered to go shopping for me when a snow storm was coming, that's the kind of first class service they provide. I recommend Team Ardolino and Michael for any real estate need.

Michael was the consummate professional. He made me feel as if I was an important client and put my mind at ease through some very difficult negotiations. He had the particularly tricky task of dealing with both me and my ex through the sale of our home and made sure both parties were informed and comfortable with every decision each step of the way. I would without hesitation recommend Michael to anyone seeking to purchase or sell a home. He simply makes a very stressful situation very manageable. Less ... More

Hi my name is Stacey. I just relocated to Setauket, New York from Huntington Beach, California, with my husband and two children. Secondary to time constraints, my family had only a weekend to find a home. This may sound like a challenge; however, with TEAM ARDOLINO on your side, this was no challenge at all. In fact it was one of the most fun weekends I had all year long! From California I spoke with Michael and one of his leading team members, Lisa, (who is also fabulous), for approximately one hour on the phone. That was all it took for them to know exactly the needs and wants of my family. Michael and his team have extensive knowledge of the Stony Brook area as well as Suffolk County. Michael's ability to carefully listen to what YOU want is key in his ability to placing you in the perfect home. His diplomatic and persuasive ways allows him to bring spouses, buyers and sellers, to common grounds even when they may seem worlds apart. By day two, we found our dream home. Moving is difficult, especially out-of-state, but with Michael's arsenal of all whom are necessary to close on a home, makes this process easy. Once in your home, anything you may need from landscapers, to painters, to contractors will be at your doorstep when needed. Michael and his team gets things done quickly, efficiently, and the right way! For a finishing touch they send you about 50 "house announcements " to send out to friends and family. When looking to move to Suffolk county, especially Brookhaven, or my favorite, Three Village, do yourself a favor and make your experience great by calling MICHAEL ARDOLINO. You will have a friend on your side. :) Less ... More

Michael not only listed my home but sold it as well...ALL WITHIN 2 MONTHS! Michael and his team have so many different avenues to market my home, I wasn't surprised it sold so fast; I think they have up to 25 different websites, print, etc, ways of marketing a home. The sale went very well and I was able to move on. Great job Team Ardolino-I would definitely recommend them!

Selling my home with Michael & his team was great! His team was available whenever I had a worry or doubt in my mind. They were efficient and on top of the whole process the entire time, leading me every step of the way. I really liked the fact that each time I had a showing I received feedback the next day, letting me know what the buyers & agent thought of my home, price, etc. Really great experience all around!

Michael assisted me with purchasing a home in Stony Brook. He paid close attention to my wants and needs and found me an absolute gem. I choose Michael from his great reviews on here and I couldn't be happier with my selection. He not only showed me homes but he also educated me on the different neighborhoods and what each had to offer my family and I. He was patient with me and once I choose a home he blew me away with his negotiation skills, getting me a great deal! When hiring Michael you not only get his services but his staff as well, and what a great staff they are, so helpful! I would recommend Michael and his team any day! Less ... More

Michael Ardolino will stop at nothing to ensure the comfort and happiness of his client. When I was looking for a house, Michael took it upon himself to make sure I moved into a house that met my requirements. As if that was not enough, he calls and assists us till date if we need any assistance. Till date, I do not think I would have gotten any service better!!

I was a seller. Michael connected with me. He connects with people, period. . He gave me realistic listing prices, understood my time-line and informed me every step of the way. He went the extra mile by employing contractors (with my approval) to liquidate the furniture in the house and maintain the landscaping.

My experience with Michael Ardolino, and his team, in specific, Lisa Godt, was what it should be for every home buyer. From the first telephone call, all the way through the closing, Michael and Lisa held our hands and walked us through the process and transition from New Jersey to the Port Jefferson area, in New York. We knew no one in Suffolk, before meeting Lisa, and now we have connections of all sorts, from plumbers, to contractors, electricians, carpet guys, cleaners, to anything you need. Their help was not limited to finding us a home, but also went beyond and above their duty, to making the whole move and settling experience, as stress free as possible. I cannot begin to describe just how wonderful this real estate office and all its agents are, again, in specific Michael and Lisa. This team was very attentive to our needs, always happy to show us homes(no matter how many, LOL), very patient, gracious, and extremely knowledgeable of the areas and neighborhoods they service. I learned a great deal about Suffolk county, Port Jeff, Setauket, Stonybrook, Miller Place, Mount Sinai, Saint James....you name it, and we saw a home in that town. This is what helped us narrow our final home buying choice to Port Jefferson. My calls were returned immediately, and their help extended to a friendship post closing. IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A HOME IN SUFFOLK COUNTY, IN THEIR SERVICE AREAS, LOOK NO FURTHER...THIS IS THE REALTOR YOU WANT BY YOUR SIDE. I have been in the real estate practice for many years, and this team definitely impressed the heck out of me!!! LISA AND MICHAEL, WE CANNOT THANK YOU ENOUGH. May God continue to bless you both tremendously. Less ... More

Selling my parents home that had history all the way back from my grandparents since 1968. It was everyones home at one time or another. However, as time passed it was time to let it go. Having Michael Ardolion and his team sell the home was a good choice. The timing of selling the home, how to prepare the home to sell and what to do and not do are very important. Allthough, I have real estate experience selling is a very different. Thank-you and your team for selling the dwelling.

Michael Ardolino is not the gentleman that he is made out to be. He helped me buy a home in Stony Brook but I did all the work. He did not search the MLSLI data base for me. He actually pawned me off to one of his workers and I never really saw him except for in passing and in the closing, when he collected over $25,000. He never gave his opinion on the home I bought, and I would have taken his advice, but he knew that I had over $650,000 to spend, so he took the easy way out. When I wanted to sell the home, he looked at it and had disparaging remarks to say about how my home looked. There were so many problems with the house after I bought it, that I was tired and frustrated and the house became a money pit. After all of the remarks he made about my home, I said that I didn't want to use him and he left. I would never recommend him to anyone. Less ... More

Michael is the consummate professional. He explained the sales process thoroughly so there was never a question as to what to expect next. Michael's knowledge and experience in properly pricing our property resulted in multiple offers, and the acceptance of an offer on our property in one week from the listing date. Michael and his staff were proactive, knowledgeable, professional and a pleasure to deal with. We would highly recommend Michael to anyone who is purchasing or selling a property. Less ... More

Michael and his staff were extremely helpful in locating a qualified tenant for my rental apartment. In addition to MLS, the apartment was marketed consistently in print media including advertisements in our local newspapers. I would recommend Michael and his team should there be a need for a real estate broker to represent you in a real estate transaction .

Michael was terrific to work with. He understood my needs and preferences right away, and always geared his recommendations toward my specific circumstances. He priced the house right, and marketed it astutely. Toward the beginning I was a little impatient with his approach, but it certainly turned out to be the correct one. My house is 100 years old and not typical, and he knew that it was important to find just the right buyers, which he did. He guided me expertly through every step of the process, and helped smooth out all issues and concerns, often going the extra mile and beyond. I couldn't recommend him more highly. Less ... More

We were treated like family during every step of the home buying process. We started out dealing with another realtor, and were unsatisfied with their level of drive to find a suitable house within our budget. Ardolino realty had pages of listings for us the second day, and we found our house within two weeks. We love our new house, and would never deal with another realty office ever again. It would feel like downgrading.

We are forever grateful to Michael and his team for his professionalism and compassion during the sale of my parents home. When my dad finally decided to sell, it was Michael we turned to - he was compassionate, respectful and thoroughly knowledgeable about every aspect of selling and moving. When Michael met with my dad to discuss the sale he spent hours with him going over all aspects, easing his mind and calming any concerns he had. Michael and his team were always available for our calls and questions. They even updated us after every the Open House. The house sold very quickly and we attribute that to Michael's knowledge of knowing where to price it how to expedite every aspect of the move. Michael support through every aspect was constant and unwavering. When we sell our home it's Michael we'll turn to without hesitation. If you're looking for someone with the highest integrity and a true professional, Michael Ardolino is your man. Thank you, Michael! Less ... More

Michael was the listing agent for this home when we purchased it in 2008 and we have kept in touch over the years. He would periodically update us on the present value when we asked a few times over the years. We decided to be a bit aggressive on the pricing, feeling that the market was turning for the better. We actually got multiple offers and settled on one at 4% over the asking price. Michael is very knowledgeable about the local market and also very personable. I would not hesitate recommending him at all for future buyers or sellers in the Three Village and Port Jefferson markets. Less ... More
