Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $925K in Mar Vista, Los Angeles, CA.

West Los Angeles is full of realtors – some good, and a lot bad. Michele and Mitchell aren’t good – they are incredibly excellent. My experience started in early 2011. At the time that I started my journey, I was looking for a condominium along the red line. I was a single guy looking for a place to hang my hat. I contacted Michele to help me begin my search.

Almost three years later, life has changed dramatically. Many people have come and gone in my life. I am now engaged. In spite of all of these changes, Michele and Mitchell have hung in there with me. Several I now am the proud owner of a single-family residence in West Los Angeles!

I could go on and on about my specific situation, but I’d rather get to the top five reasons why Michele and Mitchell should be your realtors of choice:

Integrity – There really is no quality that is more important. They are honest, forthcoming, and complete in their dealings with their clients.

Experience – They know real estate. They KNOW Los Angeles. They KNOW the neighborhoods. They listen and they will find you what you are looking for. Even if you don’t know what that is right now, they will help you figure it out.

Small Team – It’s just the two of them. Michele is the face and Mitchell is the quarterback doing the diligence to make YOUR experience the best experience you can imagine. A lot of other realtors use teams with a bunch of people and you don’t always know whom you are dealing with. Not so with Michele and Mitchell – you are dealing with them directly.

No Pressure – It took me almost three years to find my home. Never once did Michele or Mitchell pressure me to purchase something I didn’t want buy.

They are Just Plain Nice – Michele and Mitchell have a legendary holiday party nearly every year that they throw for their clients, vendors, friends, and more. They drop by and check in on their clients/friends and are supportive through the good and the bad. Besides being my realtors, I consider them friends.

In all, what could have been a confusing, challenging, or even terrible experience was a straightforward, simple, and excellent experience because of Michele and Mitchell.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $875K in Culver City, CA.

I found Michele to be the consumate professional when she recently listed and sold my house in Culver City. She was very well informed and experienced.. Being a research professional myself, this impressed me. She stays on top of recent sales, comps, and info about the current market. She showed up for the listing appointment with a "how to" book for me, the prospective seller. She knows her field and her job inside out, upside down, and backwards. She is the most proactive real estate agent I have ever met and I would use her again in a heart beat. She called when she said she wouldl; did what she says she would do; and tied up all the loose ends to get it done. I needed to get my house sold and my new house deal closed within a very limited time and she worked with the other agent to make it happen. I should also mention that she did all this while recovering from hip surgery!!

Need I say anymore? I think she is five star quality all the way. I highly recommend her to anyone!

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $725K in Culver City, CA.

When it came time to finding a real estate agent to sell my parents house --- the name that came to mind was Michele Walman. She had sold my Aunt's house a few years earlier when she was put into a Nursing Home and myself and my family had no doubt that she would take care of our parents house when the time came.

Michele Walman is a name that is recognizable and inspires confidence. Michele knows Culver City better than most of the people that have served on the City Council. Her knowledge of the city and of real estate is above reproach. Words that come to mind that describe Michele during this process are superb, patient, helpful and outstanding.

Superb comes to mind because Michele was always organized and on top of things during the entire process. From day one, Michele called me to ensure that she would do everything in her power to make this as smooth a process as possible. Paperwork was on time, emails were always responded to and phone calls always returned in a timely manner. Once I moved out of my parent's house, Michele was good to go and had us ready to show in two weeks. The house was on the market for a VERY SHORT period of time and we had the offer we wanted and then BAM we were in Escrow. All thanks to Michele.

Patient comes to mind because no matter what the question or situation, Michele took the time to explain things and always remained calm. Never once did she lose her cool.

Helpful comes to mind because no matter what I needed, she had a solution to offer. Her resources about any topic are immense – having a person to call for any problem that may arise. An example involves fixing things around the house before and during the selling process – Michele always had a person to recommend and help us out.

Outstanding comes to mind because not only did she have to deal with me and my teaching/school schedule, but she had to deal with my entire family (four other siblings) all wanting to be involved in the process of selling our parent’s house. She handled all of these different personalities like an expert juggler tossing five apples in the air and not letting one of them hit the ground. This in itself should show what a talented, experienced and professional real estate agent Michele is.

As a teacher, I am the person who is used to being in front of the classroom and in charge of the students. However, during the selling of my parent’s house, I took on the role of the student. Lucky for me, I was fortunate enough to have an outstanding teacher in the person of Michele Walman. She embodied all the attributes that any good teacher should possess --- organization, patience, a sense of humor, expert subject knowledge, competence and a caring attitude. I would highly recommend Michele to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a property.

Sold a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $400K in Culver City, CA.

Michele is amazing to work with! I chose her because of her reviews and was not disappointed at all. I sold my condo with her and she made it so easy - we had it ready and sold in less than a month! She was so thorough as well as thoughtful. She took care of EVERYTHING from getting someone in to fix my place up to be ready to show, to constant showings after it had been listed, to working with the buyer to resolve any issues, truly everything. She was always professional but very personable and willing to listen to and answer any questions I had. I cannot say enough good things about her.

Sold a home in 2013.

Remarkable Listing Agent!! Michele Walman knows the Culver City area well and how to market a property to best advantage. We had 12 offers after the initial open house and most were well over asking price. We closed in less than 6 weeks from the time the property was put on the market. She handled all the details and communicated with us nearly daily. This was a Trust sale after our beloved aunt passed away and none of the family live close by. Even after making several trips to Los Angeles to get the property prepared to sell, there we gaps when we just couldn’t be there. Michele went above and beyond our expectations to coordinate workers to renovate the property, move furniture out, and get it in top shape to put on the market. Michele is competent, savvy, and treats you like a good friend! We couldn’t have asked for a better experience from start to finish.

Sold a Single Family home in 2006 in Cheviot Hills, Los Angeles, CA.

I have known Michele for nearly 20+ years and she is not only the consummate real estate professional, but she is incredibly caring, warm and kind. Michele has helped me find, purchase and later sell several homes and has done an amazing job each time giving wise advice, sourcing helpful information beyond the listing info and skillfully handling negotiations. Michele lives and breathes for all of her clients, both buyers and sellers. I am now in the market again, and working with Michele, and I know that we will find the perfect property! I give Michele my highest recommendation.

Bought a Condo home in 2001 for approximately $275K in Palms, Los Angeles, CA.

After losing four properties due to inexperienced agents, we finally purchased our dream home thanks to Michele Walman. She was on top of the deal from the day we contracted her as our agent. She went over and above by being accessible, professional and prescreening homes that met our criteria. So many other agents just showed us everything and didn't really listen to what it is that we wanted. Not Michele. She hit the nail on the head and got us exactly what we were looking for. I highly recommend her for both first time home buyers and seasoned homeowners as well.

Bought a Single Family home in 2003 for approximately $550K in Culver City, CA.

I cannot say enough wonderful and great things about the experience I had working with Michele and purchasing my home.

I was looking to purchase a house in the Culver City area and saw an open house sign for Culver Park Drive in Culver City; Michele was the listing agent for the seller. When I walked in she greeted me immediately and took the time to answer all the questions I had about the house, the schools in Culver City, and the Sunkist Park neighborhood. I was so impressed with her knowledge, friendliness and the overall way she made me feel comfortable about such a major decision; she became my agent represent me as the buyer as well. I had no doubt she was the best choice for me and I knew I could trust her to have my best interest and well as the sellers in mind. The deal went flawlessly; I could not have been happier and satisfied with the decision to have Michele Walman as my agent. Since then I have referred all of my friends who were also looking to sell or purchase a home to Michele. I would highly recommend Michele and only Michele for your Real Estate needs. She is simply the BEST!!!

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $925K in Culver City, CA.

If you are looking for a real estate agent who will not only do an excellent job selling your house but is also a pleasure to work with, look no further, Michele Walman is your agent.

We interviewed multiple agents before we chose Michele and we chose her because of her Culver City expertise, her keen business sense and her understanding of our home and its position in the market. She was the only agent who brought us the closing costs worksheet BEFORE we chose to work with her so we could understand all of the costs as well as the potential profit we would be making if we received offers at our listing price.

Michele sold our house in Culver City quickly and we had multiple offers significantly over asking. For most of the sale process we were living in Northern California and Michele kept us updated daily, and we never felt out of the loop. Michele helped us to take care of all of the small details (making extra keys, overseeing the painters, dealing with a locked bathroom) so that we could have a stress-free selling experience. She was available 24/7 to help us with this process and was always a calm voice with a solution to any problem.

Michele is a true professional and dedicated to her clients. We wish we could clone her up here in Northern California!

Sold a Single Family home in 2004 for approximately $625K in Westchester, Los Angeles, CA.

Michele Walman helped my in-laws sell their rental income property, sell their home, and buy a home to be closer to our family in a very short amount of time. There was a lot to juggle, but Michele Walman handled everything seamlessly. Her real estate knowledge and professionalism is beyond compare. Not only is she the consummate professional, she is also a very kind, caring, and compassionate person. She truly cares about each person that she meets. My family and I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs the best person to handle their real estate needs.
