"Michele Harkov was so helpful as we decided to sell our home with no advanced planning as we fell in love with another home in a nearby city. She was responsive and worked well with our other agent (as our offer on the new house was on contingency of selling our home). She helped us get the house ready and on the market very quickly. She was also really great at following up with showing agents on every viewing. This was all during COVID, which she handled seamlessly for us as well. We would definitely recommend Michele. " - Jacqueline S.
"Michele is a consummate professional and a wonderful person, all wrapped up in one. We have now used her in multiple home sales and purchases and would not use anyone else. On the sale side, she and her team remove all of the stress and really take care of everything—from assessing which repairs and modifications are necessary and most meaningful, to finding the right vendors and ensuring that the work is done right, to securing beautiful photos and brochures on the marketing side and ultimately making sure the home shows at its best and the offers come in. On the purchase side, Michele ‘s kindness and honesty merge with her shrewd business sense. She will not only help you find just the right place, but also drive the best possible deal and keep you fully informed, all with transparency, integrity, humor, and grace.
Michele plainly loves her work, and makes her clients feel valued, listened to, cared for and appreciated. She is a special person and a fantastic professional. We couldn’t recommend her any higher." - Angela D.
"Michele Harkov was an outstanding partner in helping us to sell our first home. She helped us through the process every step of the way, kept us calm during the emotional phases of negotiation, and in the end I am confident that we were able to receive the maximum value during the sale. We will certainly be reaching out to Michele again the next time we need to buy or sell a home." - Michael & Gail O.
"Michele is a true gem in a very crowded real estate market. She is attentive, smart, sincere, caring, warm, and professional. Michele really listened to us during our house search. She kept us in the loop at each step during the purchase process and made professional recommendations along the way. Michele is a good listener and is very detail oriented. She made our home purchase very memorable. Michele made us feel like valuable clients and friends. " - Z Family
"I have nothing but great things to say about Michele Harkov. We were first time home buyers and Michele went above an beyond to help us find a home. She was always available, professional, kind, and really cared about finding us the right home. In the California market, even if you are knowledgeable about real-estate, you need someone who stays on top of the fast moving market and is quick to act on finding homes and getting the process of buying the home started. Michele knows the market very well and will help her clients to her fullest extent. She makes you feel like you are her only client and is always available for you. Michele will not only help you find the right home but she will help you with all the things you need after moving in. She will make sure you understand the taxes you owe and send you reminders, she will send you referrals for handymen, contractors, landscape, and basically anything else you need, and she will check in on you far after the sell of the home to make sure things are going well. I would recommend Michele to family, friends, and anyone else looking to buy or sell a home. We will definitely be using her in the future for any real-estate/home buying/selling needs. " - Lynne M.
