Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $1.0M in Tampa, FL.
Michelle Fitz-Randolph was our realtor in both selling our home and purchasing our new home. She was very knowledgable about the area and priced our home at both a price that was satisfactory to us and in line with similar homes that had sold and were for sale in our area. My husband is in a high profile profession and we trusted Michelle to only bring serious buyers to our home and she respected our privacy as much as possible. She sold our home in under 30 days and closed shortly thereafter.
Michelle was the realtor for the seller of the home we purchased as well and we never felt like she was working harder for them in any way. We thought the process was very smooth, fair and honest. We closed on that home very quickly as well. We couldn't be more thrilled with Michelle as our realtor and highly recommend her! She works so hard for her clients and truly looks out for them.
Michelle is the BEST!
She not only pays attention to detail but works with you to get your home sold. I will use her again whenever I am able to do so. I cannot commend her high enough. She went well beyond any of my expectations in the closing of my home. Her marketing and people skills are beyond excellent!!!!!! She has a great network of international relocation clients and brought many qualified buyers to view my home and sold it!. She is not like many real estate sale people who make promises and don't deliver: she gets the job done!!!!
After listing my beach house twice with the top two real estate producers in Tampa Bay, for 3 years, I never received one offer. Showings of my property were sparse at best and considered difficult to sell because it was a duplex beach house.
Then we hired Michelle. And all that changed. Not only did she do an excellent job of marketing my property with fabulous pictures/copy of my home ... she yielded more qualified solid showings in 2 months, than the previous agents combine! She understood how to market our "difficult duplex"!
But it was her enthusiastic and sincere desire to sell my property and her professional work ethic that clearly puts her miles ahead of all the other real estate agents that we have worked with in the past.
If you want a true professional, who understands what it takes to sell ANY property, then you must put Michelle at the top of your Real Estate Agent List. We highly recommend Michelle for ALL your Real Estate needs!
We highly recommend Michelle to market and sell your home for its highest value. She was the only Realtor we interviewed who had researched the unique aspects of our community's amenities and had a solid foundation for her recommended market value of our home. She handled all aspects of our home's marketing and sale, including overseeing the professional staging and photography of our home while we were out of town. We know that her preparation and professionalism enabled us to sell our home in less than six weeks!
In the end, Michelle was the professional who we felt we could partner with, because she would show the same level of maturity, judgment, and enthusiasm that we would. Since we were out of town for long periods of time while our home was for sale, being able to trust that she would care for our home in our absence was very important. We quickly got to a place where we knew that "Michelle will handle it" -- and that it would be done with quality and professionalism. That made this whole process - as quick as it was -- pretty painless and smooth.

Michelle made the process easy, and went out of her way to make the sale happen, she was available whenever we needed her, she is honest and very professional, I would highly recommend Michelle to anyone wanting to purchase a home or property!!
What an unbelievable agent I was lucky enough to meet! Michelle has been so patient with me and the market, working to make my dream a reality. Her insight into what homes are worth, the negotiation process and timing has been tremendously helpful and accurate. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to buy a home.
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $175K in Wesley Chapel, FL.
Moving into my new home would not have been possible if weren't for the professionalism, dedication and honesty of Michelle. As a new buyer, I was unsure of what the process would be like in this market. Michelle managed my expectations and reality beautifully - never letting me give up on the dream. When it was time to negotiate, I could not have had a more knowledgeable person in my corner. Thank you, Michelle, for all of your efforts!

I am a surgeon in Tampa and have come to appreciate three things in a good realtor. Extensive knowledge of the local market and comparable properties, a practical approach to getting a sale successfully completed, and most importantly honesty. I am comfortable endorsing Michelle in all three areas.
My wife and I are fortunate to have met Michelle and recommend her highly, without any reservations. We were able to complete somewhat of a complex home purchase thanks to her ability to think outside the box and on her feet. Had it not been for this, the sale would likely not have happened.
Many thanks to you Michelle for your oustanding help, and congratulations on your deserved success in this business..
We were an American family moving from Canada back to the U.S. last year. Not only were we moving back, but we were moving to a completely new cityand state. It was hard to navigate the real estate market in Florida from Toronto, but Michelle made it so easy. She is a relentless hard worker! She is immediately responsive to email and phone calls. She made re-locating a pleasure and found us a beautiful home and negotiated a creative rent with option to purchase since we were so new to the area. She really went to "bat for us" and listened to our needs to find us the best fit for our family. I would definitely recommend Michelle to anyone! We are hoping to purchase this home this summer!
One of the most intelligent people I know in real estate. When it comes to real estate she is one of the best! She has done amazing job selling our home. She is creative and has expert marketing resources to get the job done. Has a great customer base to draw from and handles many relocation clients as well. Extremely highly recommend!
