Michael DeBiase


Michael was raised in Fairfield. He decided to stay close to his roots where he attended Sacred Heart University. He graduated at the top of his class on full academic scholarship. He was a member of three National Honor Societies and earned the Medal of Excellence for Graduating with the highest GPA in his double major of Sociology and Criminal Justice. His education has led him to have a keen understanding of people and relationships.

Before getting into real estate, Michael worked as a Private Investigator and held the position of Senior Manager in charge of Asset Protection for the North East and Mid West. Michael states, “I was a Certified Forensic Interrogator - conducting daily interviews. This helped me hone my negotiation skills for my current profession.”

Michael goes on to state, “I have always been a people person. I enjoy helping others. I entered the real estate profession because I remembered how amazing I felt when I purchased my home and want to be able to pass that feeling along to others.” And that he did.

He has earned top honors as one of the top producing real estate agents in his office as well as in CT. Michael stated it is very simple- "Have open communication and be innovative...people want to know what you are doing for them and how do you differ from everyone else.” Keeping up with cutting edge technology and having a juxtaposed view of marketing has landed him success in the industry.

Michael admits that his Team and his Director of Operations keep everything running smooth. He states, “We have a back bone comprised of systems that keep us ahead of the pack - We work together with the same goal in mind - TO ENSURE CLIENT SATISFACTION.”
