Ratings & Reviews

Michele is truly the consummate professional in real estate sales. She took the time to explain the home sales process in detail to include what she she does and what we could expect from buyers in today's market. She "staged" our home with furniture and artwork at no cost to us to make our home more attractive to potential buyers. She provided us with recommendations to make our home more appealing. Most importantly she was there when questions or potential problems arose often taking the lead in providing answers or services required. As a result of her efforts our home sold in near record time! There can be no doubt that we would recommend her to anyone selling their home in the Raleigh-Durham area!

Bought a home in 2014 in Nelson, Durham, NC 27703.

Here is how you should decide if Michele is the right Realtor for you: 1. Do you want someone who is intricately knowledgable and engaged in their market? 2. Do you want someone who is available when you need them and with the patience of a saint? 3. Do you want someone who accurately generates forms and reviews ALL documentation in advance? 4. Do you want someone who is a firm but polite negotiator? 5. Do you want someone who you can always trust and know they have your best interest at heart?

If the answer to any of the above is "yes" then you won't be disappointed with Michele. We have been very lucky to work with Michele and consider her part of the family at this point! Good luck with your home listing or search!

Showed home in 2013 in Nelson, Durham, NC 27703.

Michele has worked with my husband and me for about six months in a very competitive market. She has always made us a top priority and cared for us like family. We are grateful to have found the perfect home for our family, and this would not have been possible without Michele and her dedication to find us our forever home!  More Less
