Ratings & Reviews

What I like about Michelle is the air of confidence she exudes. She knew she could sell my property and she did. She's smart, tough, nice, connected, and she delivers. She was in constant contact with me throughout the entire experience and kept me informed of any and all changes. She took care of all the paperwork and just sent forms to me marking where I needed to sign. She made it simple and stress free. She is well regarded in the industry and has supreme confidence in her ability to put the right buyer and seller together. My property only had one interested person and she found them within a few days of the listing and kept that person interested and on board and took care not to lose her. You can't ask for more than that in your realtor.

Bought a home in 2010.

We first met Michelle when she sold a few homes in our old neighborhood. We knew we wanted to sell ours, but didn't think it would be possible due to it's slightly undesirable location. Add to it the fact that our builder had gone bankrupt and left several houses unfinished, holes dug for foundations but abandoned, angry neighbors, and a tough economy that had taken it's toll on housing, and we thought we'd NEVER get out without losing way too much.

Michelle was honest with us about our situation. We obviously weren't going to make money, but she helped us see that it was only part of the process, and we would make it up in our next house purchase. She priced the house fairly, and we had many showings. Surprisingly, after a month on the market, our house sold, which we felt was quick given the housing market at the time. It was a buyer's market, but Michelle still pushed the buyers of our home to pay us a fair price that would satisfy both parties. It could have been a lot worse, but we actually felt good with what we received and walked away more than happy.

The next 8 months were the fun part. Michelle showed us house after house, and really helped us to figure out what we were looking for. It's easy to walk into a home and not think about the little things that you'll notice after you move in, but she helped us look at every aspect of the homes we were viewing to see if we could really envision ourselves in the space for years to come. It was awesome to not feel as if we were burdening her or taking too much of her time since we were in no hurry to buy.

After much looking, we found a builder and location we instantly loved. I never figured that a realtor would assist with new construction homes, but apparently they do, and she was AWESOME. Our builders were somewhat stubborn and not the easiest people to work with, yet she was able to negotiate us a great price and upgrades within our home. It was relaxing not having to have the awkward conversations with the builder...Michelle told them what was up and did all the legwork for us.

We finsihed the process feeling completely happy. We love our new home and never figured we'd be able to be in the location we are now. Michelle has become a dear friend to us that we still keep in touch with.

We would 100% recommend her to anyone interested in buying or selling their home--old or new. She is not someone who decided overnight to become a realtor. She has been doing this for many years, knows the business, and has made it into a successful career that will continue for many years to come. 5 stars to Michelle!

Bought a Single Family home in 2006 in Wasatch Hollow, Salt Lake City, UT.

Michelle is an amazing real estate agent. She got us our first home in 2006 when it was a sellers market and housing prices were at an all time high. Nevertheless, she impressed us and our loan agent when we purchased the home for $20,000 less than its appraised value. Now, she is helping us find our next home (winter of 2012). She is doing a wonderful job giving us honest and immediate feedback on our houses. She also is a great intermediary between me and my husband when we disagree on a house. I highly recommend Michelle's services.

Bought a home in 2005 in Liberty Wells, Salt Lake City, UT 84115.

Proactive, professional, and attentive. I was a first time home buyer from out of state. In 2005 I was trying to buy a home in Salt Lake City from Portland, Oregon. Michelle sent me detailed information about Salt Lake City and was the only realtor that answered my emails with detail and complete sentences. She also understood the emotions and stress one goes through in buying a home. She was honest and direct which was much appreciated as my time was limited when I travelled to Salt Lake to look at homes. I have referred her to several coworkers and friends all have been so thankful to find such a trustworthy and professional realtor. Jill Driesel

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 in Salt Lake City, UT.

First of all, we are very thank ful to have met such a great realtor. We had such a wonderful experience. My family and I never met a professional like Michelle Koch, who went the extra mile to make sure that everything was done right, she always gave us the best advice but MOST of all she gave us a great experience and found a home we are very excited about. If we ever decide to sell and buy again, we are NOT gonna think twice about calling her! We want to thank her and let her know we appreciate her experience in the realtor business. Thank you Michelle Koch, The Alayo Family.

Sold a Condo home in 2011 in Midvale, UT.

We have been working with Michelle since 1995. She has helped us sell several properties and has always been very professional and knowledgeable in each transaction. In the past years she has spent countless hours helping us search for our perfect home. She is patient and determined. A true professional that I highly recommend.

Bought a home in 2011.

When I write a review, I typically don't give 5 stars in every category because it won't seem believable. But for Michelle, I cannot think of anything about her knowledge and professionalism that is not deserving of 5 stars.

I recently had poor experiences with a few realtors, but Michelle changed my luck ten-fold. Michelle recently served as my agent as a first-time home buyer. One of my favorite aspects of her practice is her deep desire to get to know you and what you're looking for in a home. She is a no-pressure agent. Even after expressing interest in a certain home she told me, "Nah. I can find you something better than this." She was right. She chose my best interest, instead of going after a quick sale.

After finding our home, she demonstrated her exceptional and tactical negotiating skills. Our particular negotiations were very sensitive, and she held the deal together. She aggressively bargained for more than we hoped. As a first-time home buyer, she patiently walked us through every step and demonstrated the heart of a teacher.

My recommendation comes completely from my experience with her. Whether you're buying or selling or both, I most highly recommend Michelle Koch to be your agent. She will be mine again in the future.
