Working with Michelle made the process of finding a home easy and enjoyable. Michelle is professional, of positive and high spirits, and extremely knowledgeable about the South Orange county residential market. Not only were my husband and I treated with kindness, priority and respect, I witnessed Michelle treat everyone this way, including other buyers who were not her clients. We are very happy with our home and the care Michelle has provided after are moving has been surprising and refreshing. I will definitely work with Michelle again and recommend her highly.
My wife and I met Michelle at an open house a few years back before we were officially ready to buy. We were initially impressed by her knowledge of the local real estate market, her thoroughness and responsiveness even though we weren’t at a point that we could purchase a home. Over the past year we went to a good deal of open houses. Michelle was always prepared with wealth of knowledge and didn’t make us feel rushed no matter how many houses we looked at. After a lot of house hunting we finally got our offer accepted in one of the toughest times for a home buyer to find a home. Escrow was a breeze and like always Michelle was extremely versed and knowledgeable about every step of the process. I would recommend to anyone that you work with Michelle. I’ve purchased another home out of state prior to this and I can tell you that working with an agent who is experienced and knows the lay of the land, as Michelle does, is so important! Especially, when the housing market is so competitive as it is in Orange County.
It was a pleasure to work with Michelle to buy and sell a home. Michelle is an excellent negotiator and a savvy businesswoman. She is punctual, readily available and detail oriented, all while making you feel as if you are her only client.
Michelle is tireless in her work ethic. Extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of real estate, working on behalf of selling our house as well as brokering our purchase. I recommend her to anyone considering buying or selling a residential property. A consummate professional!
