Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $800K in Aptos, CA.
Michele helped us complete the purchase of a home where their were many potential buyers. Through her local contacts and knowledge of the area we prevailed acquiring the home. Michelle was easy to work with and very responsive. As a longtime local resident she knows the unqique details of the different areas so you can be a well informed buyer or seller.
My experience with Michele has been very positive.
She is very patient with my more than fickle wishes and indecisiveness.
Even my husband and daughter find her more than trustworthy, open and approachable.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $925K in Santa Cruz, CA.
We met Michele at an open house and subsequently kept in touch. We were looking for a single family house with specific requirements, and Michele patiently shared homes that met our requirements. We never felt any pressure or rush. We were able to see the home we ultimately purchased before it officially went on the market due to Michele’s constant vigilance. When we decided to place an offer on the home, she provided sound advice in timing and details, and even met with us on a holiday to complete the offer. Michele was very helpful through the whole process, responded right away to any concern or question, and followed through on all items. Michele knows the Santa Cruz area thoroughly and is a pleasure to work with. We appreciate her hard work, and would recommend her services highly.

Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $650K in Willow Glen, San Jose, CA.
Michele did an awesome job finding us a new home. She went on several house tours with us and eventually found one prior to it going on the market. She was very knowledgeable about the area and process. I recommend Michele highly.
I contacted Michele because she handled a relative's condo purchase, and told her what we were looking for (a small affordable Santa Cruz condo in a good location, not an easy thing to find). She promised to send us an alert if such a rarity popped up, and a few months later she did. We live several hours from Santa Cruz but she was ready to jump on securing the property for us, and realistically described the property and the need to act fast (a competing cash offer came in within 24 hours). She steered us through a very fast process with multiple offers and helped us counterbid without spending more than we wanted to. We would never have prevailed without her help and without her keeping us in mind from the very beginning--she bothered to call potential clients several hours away whom she hadn't even met yet. She is also fun to work with and a Santa Cruz native. I highly recommend her.
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $775K in Santa Cruz, CA.
I met Michele at an open house and am very glad I kept in touch and asked her to help us find a house. We were in no hurry but had very specific requirements, which she understood perfectly. Her recommendations were on target but never intrusive. From the beginning we felt that she would never push us or become insistent to make a sale. She was always informative and respectful of our time and needs. When time came to bid on a house she gave us good advice and was extremely helpful through the whole process. Her intimate knowledge of the area is priceless. She also responded immediately to any inquiry and made herself available every step of the way. I would highly recommend her to anyone.
Michele was a pleasure to work. She help navigate me through my first home buying exprience, when ever a question arrose she woudl give me an answer or put me in touch with someone who could. Michele is a sweet and casring individual after spending 5 minutes with her you can tell she has her clients best interests at heart.
Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $400K in Watsonville, CA.
Michele was AWESOME! I highly recommend her. We purchased our home when we are in our late 40's/early 50's and set our budget based on what mortgage we were comfortable carrying into retirement. Michele never once tried to push us to go higher or expand our comfort zone.
Michele's knowledge of the area was invaluable. When we discussed viewing a property she gave us her input on the neighborhood, issues with the land, and potential land-mines to look out for. This was greatly appreciated.
