Highest Possible Ranking

Sheila Clemente is an exceptionally bright, talented and a highly experienced and accomplished realtor who goes “above and beyond” in every respect – you will not find a better realtor to work with! We have sought Sheila’s expertise for nearly two decades now, including the sale of a house, multiple rentals of our home when we moved out of state, followed by the purchase of another house when we returned. With each real estate need, Sheila was the consummate professional in every instance, exceeding our expectations on every front. Equally as important, she is a pleasure to work with, being incredibly attentive to her clients’ real estate needs and goals, always upbeat, honest, responsive and genuinely committed to client satisfaction, well beyond the actual purchase or sale.

Sheila’s market knowledge is extensive and deep, enabling her to provide superb guidance on pricing/negotiations, insightful analysis of “comparables” and the trade-offs of the various market options. Her passion for architectural and interior design is incredibly helpful on walk-through evaluations, decisions about staging, decorating, and landscaping, as well as the pros and cons of investing in renovations or redesign.

Her commitment to her clients goes “above and beyond” the actual purchase or sale, as she has helped us over the years with numerous contractor/service professional referrals (she knows everyone!), with strategies for staging , advice about upgrades and modernizing to keep our house highly marketable. Even after our real estate transactions with Sheila were wrapped up, when we have had interaction with the Town regarding zoning, wetlands, tax appraisals, easements, etc., Sheila has been incredibly helpful in providing us with documents and information to support our queries. She is quick to respond, always prepared, ready to present and negotiate in an informed and professional manner that optimizes the purchase, sale, rental or negotiation of any kind.

We give Sheila Clemente the highest possible rating! She is an exceptional realtor who you will actually enjoy working with… Sheila will be genuinely committed to helping you optimize your real estate outcome while personally helping you/your family with related information surrounding your move to smooth your transition.

Highly likely to recommend

Sheila is a very experienced real estate agent. I would recommend her for anyone looking for or selling a home. Her integrity and thoughtfulness make the process more straightforward. She makes a tremendous personal commitment to the people she works with. She collected us from the train station and drove us around all day and even fit in lunch. She took the time to show us schools, amenities, parks and activities that might interest our daughter. She included our daughter in the viewing process. She listened to us and understood what what we were looking for.

She knows EVERYONE in the business and makes the process fun. Shelia was dedicated to achieving everything we wanted including making trips to view backsplash tiles and floor stains. Her deep knowledge of the contractors and builders and other vendors helps you get comfortable with what you are buying. Your relationship doesn't end once the house is bought or sold, she continued to reach out to us to make sure everything was going well. She clearly cared more about us being happy than selling us a house. She is so much more than just an agent. Shelia will become someone you reach out to because she is there for you! She is involved in the community and is a wonderful, kind person. I know I am fortunate to know her!

Highly Likely to Recommend

Sheila Clemente was a great listener and very patient as we looked at many many homes in our search for a house in two different towns. Even when we did not find what we wanted in New Canaan and decided to look in Ridgefield she stepped up learning the area quickly and helping us find our dream home.

I work in the city and she was incredibly flexible meeting with us on weekends, week nights late after work. She just was a rock help us stay positive when it seemed we would never find the house we wanted. She always was straightforward and honest with us and even tough sometimes guiding us to not rush in as well as moving quickly at the right time.

Even after we found the house, her support continued on in the form of recommending great service people to paint, and set up the house the way we needed. We have moved alot and this move was made easier by far because of Sheila.

I strongly recommend her and would use her again in a heartbeat. Thanks.

Happy Seller

My family worked with Sheila Clemente at Brotherhood and Higley to sell a home we owned in New Canaan in 2013. It was a rental property for us that had been rented for approximately 8 years, and Sheila stepped right into the role of our realtor with an exceptional plan. She was comprehensive, well-informed, and a pleasure to work with. She went above and beyond our expectations during the time we worked together. We would definitely recommend her and would want to work with her again when we buy or sell a home.

Home Buyer Happy

Sheila was great, we were able to be the first to see many homes as they were just coming on the market due to Sheila's network and knowledge of the area. Sheila always made herself available, working with our schedule and had immediate information about the homes we were seeing. Sheila is a true professional and I would highly recommend her.

Highly likely to recommend

We could not have been happier with our experience with Sheila. This was our first home purchase and Sheila took a personal interest in us. Not only in ensuring she understood our preferences, but in making sure we were well educated and informed on the many things that as new home buyers you may not realize or be aware of. In addition, she provided the best references for so many other things that you need (eg inspector, painter, housekeeping, etc) and each turned out to be wonderful. We never once felt any pressure at all and really would have been lost without her. We have her to thank for finding us the perfect home and now consider her a friend and always welcome in our home.

Home Search Success

Shelia showed the patience of a saint in 2011 as we searched for the ideal house in New Canaan that appeared not exist within our budget. Until, that is, she found it on Stonehenge Dr and secured it at a price we thought would not be accepted. She provided so many useful contacts and became a friend of the family. My daughters still use her 'bunny stairs' in their bathroom four years later. With much regret Shelia also sold the same house for us in 2013 when it was time to move on. Thankfully, her help securing it at a competitive price meant that we walked away richer rather than poorer even after all taxes and fees had been settled. She may buy low, but she sells high! I am glad to say that we remain in contact with Shelia even though we now live in the United Kingdom. If I ever get to return to New Canaan I know one thing is for sure, Sheila is buying the house for me.
