"Michelle was great - as first time homebuyers moving to a new town, we needed a lot of help, which Michelle went above and beyond to provide us with. I highly recommend Michelle and hope to work with her again in the future!" - Kristen
"Michelle listed and sold a two family home for me. She came up with a pricing strategy which would give me what I wanted and create lots of interest. We had multiple offers. Michelle was able to negotiate a price over asking. She did a great job." - Carlylle
"Michelle was a pleasure to work with! As a buyer's agent, Michelle was very knowledgeable about the market and demonstrated a strong knowledge of recent transactions and relevant local comps. Michelle was very easy to work with and brought me to a wide variety of potential properties in my target market/price range. Through my bid/closing process, Michelle was very detail oriented and worked diligently to see the process through from start to finish for a successful close. I would highly recommend Michelle to help others in looking for their next home!" - Maureen
"Michelle is one of the most well-connected and tenacious brokers I have met who provided me with unique opportunities and very helpful perspective on the market. She is sincere and a pleasure to work with which, in addition to all the expertise she has, provided me with everything I needed to make well informed decisions throughout my home search." - Jonas
"We first met Michelle at an open house on a Sunday as we were out looking for a new home. She knew all the details about this one particular house even though she was not the listing agent and that impressed us greatly! We started working with her to find our new home and she couldn't have been more accommodating with always finding time to meet us and contacting the listing agent with any questions we might have on the different houses we requested to see. Her enthusiasm and honesty was something we really appreciated and therefore will highly recommend her to any potential new clients out there looking for an honest and sincere realtor that truly cares about her clients!"
