"Machelle is the greatest real estate blessing! She is truly a gem in a tough market, and has so much knowledge about the real estate process. She always responds promptly to get you the info you need. She was able to help me find a rental, negotiate some extras, and made sure everything was taken care of throughout the move-in process. She truly cares about everyone she works with and will make sure you are taken care of 100% before, during, and after your real estate journey. She gets it done, far exceeding expectations, and I can't wait to use her for my home purchase next year! :) " - Kayla

" I worked with Machelle for over a year selling a large portfolio of homes, duplexes, and fourplexes in the Austin area. I gave Machelle very tough terms and demanded a lot from her during that time and she delivered. She's very kind and great to work with, but don't be mistaken, she will fight tooth and nail to get what you want! " - G.T

" Machelle is so wonderful to work with and she is not constantly in your face about making a quick decision. She held my hand through the whole process of finding the right home in our price range and she did a phenomenal job of negotiating our offer. Machelle is also so available anytime, day or night, and we had a 2 hr time difference. Also, Machelle put us in contact with the whole team we needed as far as loan officers, escrow agents, home inspectors, etc. AND we closed a week earlier than expected. Plus, Machelle has the cutest accent and is such a fun person to work with: Thank you so much, Machelle! " - Laurel

★★★★★
" We felt very lucky to have met Machelle Ralls. She was not our realtor and represented the sellers, but we had the honor of meeting her during a very challenging transaction. Her knowledge, experience and willingness to help us was extraordinary. She provided invaluable information regarding local contractors and where to buy the deals. Her sense of humor kept us all from pulling our hair out and on track. I would highly recommend her for investments and multi family purchases. " - G.L

★★★★★
" Working with Machelle was great. She made leasing our rental home super easy. She is really connected in the Austin real estate market so she knows who has houses for rent and potential tenants who are looking before they even hit the market. Machelle gave us so many tips on being a landlord and provided every detail in closing the deal. Her connections are invaluable as we have gotten "first looks" at numerous income-producing properties before they are even listed by the owner. " - T.C.

"Machelle Rolls is one of those rare dynamo agents that has your best interest at heart. She stepped in to the sale of our home after it had been on the market two months. Our first agent was not moving our home. Machelle took control the very first minute giving us full confidence that she knew how to handle a home sale and took it to the next level of professionalism. Her and her team are top notch, communicating with you every step of the way and worked professionally with all agents. She worked tirelessly on our behalf following up immediately after every showing to get us the best possible offer. Her advice on how to handle the offer and interact with the buyer was invaluable. On top of all this, Machelle is a wonderfully genuine person!!! Truly blessed to now count her as a great friend!! " " -Catherine

★★★★★
"Since the first contact we knew Machelle Ralls was the right person to help us sell our house and we were correct since it was sold in a record time. She was very conscious of the circumstances and the time crunch due to our relocation to Oregon. She started working immediately and kept on until the house was sold, it didn’t matter if it was day, night or weekends. Machelle was always available and easy to reach. The selling of our house looked like a stressful situation and uncertain times but thanks to her hard work and knowledge it is now just a great experience. We are grateful to find Machelle in our way and would definitely ask her again for help and would recommend her to anybody. " -Laura

I enjoyed every moment & would highly recommend her to anyone looking for someone to help guide them through the home buying or selling process! Call Machelle today & you will NOT be disappointed!!" -Alisha

Anytime we found a house we were interested in, or if we became stressed or had questions, Machelle was always quick to respond by text, phone call or email, with answers to our questions while calming our nerves at the same time!! She was extremely helpful, heartwarming and with a smile on her face throughout the whole process! We couldn’t have asked for a better first-time home buying experience!! " -Emma

About Machelle

A 5th generation Texan Machelle, nickname “Missy”, has the esprit de corps, or sense of camaraderie, so many Texans share. With a strong work ethic and the gifts of southern grit and charm, Machelle’s determination has been rewarded with a proven record of success. For the last 25 years, she has dedicated herself to residential, commercial and investment real estate.

Born in Fort Worth, Machelle moved to Austin in 1975 to attend college at the University of Texas studying business, design, marketing. She loves animals, spending time outdoors, traveling in her RV-Motorhome, and volunteering in her spare time. Her proudest achievement, however, is her son Jonathan. For Machelle, motherhood has been the greatest gift of her life.

Before her career in real estate, Machelle’s fervor for sales resulted in a position with Burlington Industries where she traveled as a National Sales Representative. Soon thereafter, with a solid foundation in retail marketing, Machelle opened her clothing boutique in Austin, Ralls&Co. She was even nominated as one of Austin’s Top New Business Woman of the Year.

In 1989 Machelle started her business, MJM Investments, purchasing her first Austin property in Tarrytown. With a focus on the UT/ Central Austin area, she began what would be a long career in real estate ownership, acquisition, and management. These were some of her favorite times, fixing and flipping properties, working with contractors on-site and learning all the intricacies of the industry. In 2009, after MJM sold its last large property, Machelle went on to work for student-housing companies and later renewed her real estate license in 2014. She recently sold over $7.5 million in small investment properties while also leasing in the UT area, as Top Producer for 2 years.

Machelle ascribes her entrepreneurial spirit to a long line of strong female role models. Starting as a young girl selling homemade pillows door-to-door, Machelle’s tenacity has always proven its purpose. Although life has thrown its curveballs in her direction, she continues to get back up to the plate with a more empathetic heart.

Machelle is an agent that truly cares about her clients’ goals and aspirations—her success measured in response to meeting their best interests. The knowledge and life lessons learned throughout a 40-year career in marketing and real estate is the foundation of Machelle’s ability to act as an informed agent; her spirit and passion for the industry are what makes her a trusted confidant.
