In most transactions there are a variety of loose ends, and Michelle isgreat about remembering and handling all of them. She knows the local area inside and out, and will give you great tips about demographics, local vendors, tourism, seasonal fluctuations, and generally where to go and what to do in San Diego County. Michelle is trustworthy. Equally important since you will be spending a fair amount of time in her company, she is a lovely person.” - Elizabeth W.

★★★★★
“ You have been a pleasure to work with. You took care of everything….especially of the interaction with the Tenant’s, getting their keys post move-out, doing the walk throughs, etc. And, you priced it right and had them bid it up. You were just fantastic and I have no issue paying you your full commission….it was worth it. Thanks for all you do.” - Chad F.

★★★★★
“We have known Michelle for 20 years and have recommended her out to folks we would love to have living in our neighborhood, she never disappoints. In addition, she is an active community member and lives right in the heart of where she sells!” - Sue A.

★★★★★
“Michelle is an accomplished professional, and one of her greatest strengths is that she is an extraordinary problem-solver. She helped me find solutions to several obscure issues that sprang up during the course of my property sale, including providing referrals to reliable licensed contractors. She is thorough and follows up on all the details that are necessary to ensure that both the buyers' and sellers' interests are well-represented. She is an excellent communicator, and responds promptly to any questions or concerns voiced by either party. Consequently, my condo was sold almost as soon as it was placed on the market! I felt completely comfortable entrusting her with the final closing tasks after I returned to my home state.” - Linda J.

★★★★★
“We will happily refer you should anyone need real estate services. We were able to take the proceeds of the sale and pay off our primary residence and still have enough money left over to pay the taxes. We are all set for retirement. Cheers!” - David S.
