I am very grateful for my experience, and I highly recommend Michelle!

Michelle is a very experienced realtor and knew every answer to our questions.

Her photographer was excellent, her recommendations for showing the home were trusted, and was very up front about all of the details from the beginning. When we did receive an offer, she gave great advice on how to negotiate, helped fully during the inspection process, and clearly broke down all of our fees and expenses so nothing was hidden or unknown before closing. I recommend Michelle as an experienced and professional realtor for selling or buying a home.

World class agent that provides much more than just options for your new home.

She lined up a reputable closing lawyer, a thorough and professional home inspector, and gives the best quality advice you can find in the industry. When it came time to negotiate and use the inspection results to leverage a fair price, she provided the insight and confidence for my wife and I to make the request that allowed us to purchase our new home. Truly the best in the business. Thank you Michelle!
