“Michelle was an absolute God send. I am a disabled Veteran and live 18 hours away and the whole process of selling the house was extremely challenging and complicated. To get the job done she went above and beyond. She is driven and and takes the bull by the horns to get the job done. She was amazing in this process. I’ve sold a few houses and this one was a nightmare and she wasn’t phased and is by far the best selling realtor I’ve ever had. I am so thankful for her hard work and highly recommend her. She goes above and beyond and I’m truly appreciative for her amazing work on this sale.”


Michelle was conscientious and always willing to be there. Her detailed information allowed the closing to be on- time and seamless, and she continues to follow through as a community resource as I settle into a new place.

Contacted five real estate firms and interviewed three before listing my house. I found that Michelle Jacobsen, from Anne Whiting Real Estate, was the most knowledgeable of the market place and presented the best overall package of services. The house sold in days and above asking price. She was also very professional in her work.

Sold a Multi Family home in 2014 in New Bedford, MA.
I was extremely satisfied with the work that Michelle did for my mother and I. It was a difficult sale and she followed through at every step. She was helpful, thoughtful and very pleasant to work with. I felt that she went above and beyond throughout the whole sale. I would definitely recommend Michelle to all of my friends who needed help with Real Estate.

Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2013 in River Mountain, Henderson, NV.
This young lady not only was extremely patient, courteous and thoughtful she went the extra mile by videotaping the site for us. She made our purchasing experience a delight.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 in Mattapoisett, MA.
Michelle was an absolute pleasure to work with. She knew the area, the business, and the market extremely well and was able to guide my wife and I into our perfect home. One of the many things I appreciated the most about Michelle was her complete and open honesty. We almost purchased a house that had everything on our checklist but for whatever reason it didn’t trigger the emotional response that would have made it our ‘home’. During one of our visits to the house she picked up on our emotions before we did and brought it to our attention. We didn’t go through with the purchase and she took the risk of us taking more time or potentially never finding the right home. For her it was more about finding the perfect first home for my new family than anything else. Eventually we found the perfect house and we couldn’t be happier. Without any reservation, we highly recommend Michelle to find your next home.

Bought a home in 2015 in Westview Park, New Bedford, MA 02740.
Fantastic experience! Working with Michelle from over 1300 miles away, on a property that we never saw in person, pre-closing, we always felt that she was representing our best interests. She relayed all information to us in a timely and efficient manner. Her process was effective and her communication exceptional. We highly recommend Michelle for any real estate transaction in the Southeastern Massachusetts area.

Sold a Single Family home in 2017 in Fairhaven, MA.
Ms. Michelle Saltmarsh is a consummate real estate professional. From my initial contact about potentially selling our family home to a timely closing, Ms. Saltmarsh listened to our family’s desires and ultimately achieved an extremely successful outcome. Selling a family home is normally a tumultuous and emotional process, yet Ms. Saltmarsh, based on her proven real estate experience and network, was able to ‘seal the deal’ at her first open house. With nearly daily updates to our family, to helping us stage the home, everything was seamless and professional.

Sold a Single Family home in 2017 in North Dartmouth, MA.
We found Michelle to be extremely knowledgeable about the market. Was spot on with opening price. Jumped into action the minute the listing agreement was signed and within days had 4 competing offers. Her use of social media was great. She’s a pleasure to work with. Made the whole process so pleasant.

Michelle was awesome ! I can’t say enough good things about her, she went above and beyond to find us our first home. She kept us in the loop with all communication through the buying process and dealt with our every need as we where very particular on what we wanted and nervous because it was our first home purchase! (I’m sure we drove her crazy) she always answered and listened to everything I had to say, every house I seen she got us a viewing within a day or two. She’s awesome, she will not disappoint! I have already recommended her to family members and friends! Highly recommend her she was fantastic! Thanks again Michelle 🙂
