After months on the market with a different realtor, we paused, found Michelle through referral, & listed. 3 short weeks later, we were signed & packing! Michelle is a go-getter. Put your faith in her model of selling & you shall have a happy return!
Michelle was really a turning point for us in a long hard journey. Our house had to go on the market due to a job relocation and we were not prepared for the current real estate environment. By the time we found her we were pretty depressed and she was the first person that gave us any indication that she cared and that she would absolutely help us sell our house. We did have to do a few things she suggested, but she didn't require a lot of updates that had been requested by others we had interviewed. The most important thing is that she was always easy to contact and she was always doing everything she could to help. She went way beyond what I consider her job description.
You really have a great new friend on your side,

We could not be more pleased with our experience. Michelle called me upon my completion of an online form, and within 24 hours we had an appointment to view houses with her. We gave her our list of requested viewings, and she brought along several more suggestions -- one of which ended up being our chosen home. We had an offer accepted the next day, and we closed 14 days later. My husband and I are real estate newbies, and her vast knowledge was extremely helpful as we navigated the whirlwind time frame. She and her team were very responsive (even when I was getting anxious and nervous!) and they calmly answered every question. She is hilarious and kind and honest. We had planned to rent out our old home, but after working with her to find our new home we decided to list it with her instead! She was THAT good. We could not recommend Michelle more!
Michelle was a true professional. Her knowledge of the area, her expertise and skill in negotiating, and her customer service exceeded our expectations.
I knew after she toured the house with us, that she would be an advocate for getting us a fair price and that she was trustworthy. Over the course of the purchase process she validated that impression.
We were only in town for the weekend and needed to be certain we were making a good decision. Michelle worked with us through the process and we were able to make an offer, and start the loan process the same day.
She continuously updated us on progress and status - which was important since we were not in the area.
She took a personal interest in our home purchase success, but more importantly, she was incredible effective and efficient. When there were hiccups, as there always are, she kept her cool and continued to give us sound advice and move the process along.
I would recommend Michelle to anyone that is looking to buy or sell a home.

Michele guided my daughter through the process of buying her first house. As her mother living about 300 miles away, I couldn't be there to help a lot and I missed closing day. Michele listened to what my daughter was looking for. She never gave up and never gave in until she found the perfect house. She then worked with my daughter, a new graduate with a challenging financial background, to get her loan approved. Michele Amen was there every step of the process and went above and beyond a realtor's responsibilities. She is more than a realtor. She's a friend that you can count on to get the job done.... no matter what. She gave me peace of mind because she stepped in for me to help my daughter. Go with Michele if you want success in real estate. Beth-White House, TN.
Showed home in 2014 in East Memphis-Colonial-Yorkshire, Memphis, TN 38112.
It was very friendly, detailed introduction of many properties that were of interest for me in in different areas of Memphis, from Germantown, to downtown Memphis. Ms. Amen showed an amazing knowledge of not just each of the properties that were of interest for me, but also of entire city and region, which was as important me considering the fact that the whole area was totally new to me and it was my very first visit to Memphis area.

Her name is Amen for a reason. She worked a miracle and got me in my dream home within just a few weeks! As a first time homebuyer with very high expectations, I was sceptical at first if she could find me a home but she quickly proved me wrong with her vast knowledge and experience. She responded very quickly to all my messages and took care of everything from getting me set up with an amazing mortgage company to finding a company to clean the roof. This was the least stressful move I've ever had. I can't thank her enough. She has a customer for life!

Michelle will overwhelm you with blah blah blah and will not let you make your own decision. If you question anything she says or offers you, she will tell you that you don't know what you are talking about and that you are uneducated (Literally). She has a guy for the mortgage loans who will try to abuse you big time with his number and if you question anything, she will tell you to either take it or leave it. She wants you to buy the house in a record time so she can make money and forget you if you did not have enough time to think about the house or the contract deal. You are in the house, you are paying a premium and she already made her money/commission. So if you are a first time buyer or you like to read about what you are offered and make good decisions, this is not the right agent for you.
She sent me an email telling me that she is too busy to spend unproductive time. I worked with her for 1 week and went out to see houses only 1 time, we decided on one but the mortgage loan the guy gave me made no sense, so I asked questions about it, she wanted me to take it or leave it. Then when I fired her she turned nasty and started saying mean things. This agent does not care about you she only cares about making her commission and quick. Do not work with her.

Our heartfelt thanks to our agent, Michelle Amen, for sticking with us and leading us on this real estate roller coaster. We asked Michelle to help us sell our home- our first home together- so that we could move on to our “forever” home as soon as possible. We were on a tight timeframe and we knew what we had to get out of the house in order to make it work financially. She had her work cut out for her, but Michelle and her team were up to the task! Michelle aggressively marketed our home, using her contacts and expertise to get our home in front of the right buyers.
In 22 days, we had an offer. In 25 days, we had three offers. Michelle patiently worked with a less-experienced agent to ensure that we were protected as sellers and that everything was “by the book.” Although the sale to the initial buyer fell through, Michelle dug the situation out of the ditch and managed to get us back under contract with one of the original offers within a week. We closed on our home two weeks later, thanks to Michelle’s expert negotiations and guidance and her team’s willingness to coordinate all of the details that go along with selling a home.
When we got emotional- as sellers often do- Michelle listened patiently, then encouraged us to remember the bigger picture. The goal was to get our house sold and Michelle got us there. Many, many thanks.

Michelle Amen sold my house in 7 days! THAT is AWESOME! She was professional and caring. She knew the market and guided me to the right price and what to do inside and out to sell quickly. I was very pleased with Michelle and her team-the service they give you is above and beyond any realtor I have ever worked with-and I have moved seven times during my career. Call her now!
