Clients are saying:
"Michele has been one of the most responsive, thorough and thoughtful professionals I have ever worked with. I feel firm in my decision on my final property as she was not afraid to question me on something to make sure I had thought of all the scenarios. She also left no stone unturned with the seller and the seller's condo association - every detail and answer was reviewed and discussed with me. Finally, she always made herself available or was very clear when she was unavailable to know when I would hear back from her. That made it very easy when I finally had to make the decision to put a final offer in when I was in a plane somewhere over Tennessee and had bought Wi-Fi to stay connected with her."
"I would recommend Michele in the strongest possible terms. Having bought and sold many homes in many states I can say that Michele was the best broker that I have dealt with. Along with the highest professional standards, Michele went further in providing a personal touch by being available at all times and showed real interest in getting me the best deal on the sale of my property. The entire process couldn't have gone smoother. Thanks Michele for an excellent experience !"
"I've had the pleasure of working with Michele two times over the past few years - once for the purchase of my first home and then the sale of that very same home. Buying and selling can be a stressful time but not with Michele. She guided me through each step, was always calm, had a keen eye and perspective on things I would have never thought about, and overall was just so much fun to work with. I can't say enough great things about Michele. She's the best and I look forward to working with her again in the future!"
"We have worked with Michele for many years both buying and selling homes. She is in a class of her own in terms of real estate knowledge, analytics, and marketing. She is very detailed oriented, responsive, and just an overall great person to be around. Michele worked a miracle for us selling a very challenging listing in the depths of the real estate recession. She came up with a very detailed plan of attack to prepare and market our home. She gave 200% effort and exceeded our expectations on both timing and financials. Our family recently re-located back to the western suburbs from Portland. Due to our history with Michele and complete trust in her, we bought our house sight unseen in Glen Ellyn. Michele did everything to facilitate the purchase in our absence, even meeting with contractors after the inspection to determine the cost of future repairs. We cannot imagine there is another realtor out there that we would trust to advise us to buy a home without seeing it in person! We have referred Michele to many friends and family over the years. They all feel the same as we do. Michele is the very best in the business."
"Michele is an outstanding professional who demonstrated great patience with us through a lengthy and some times frustrating house hunt. She is a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend her to anyone."
