Michelle is the BEST. You will not find any other real estate person out there that can do what she does. She gives 1,000% of herself, her knowledge and her experience. My search was a difficult one because I was trying to find a house that would enable me to combine two households into one. If it wasn't for Michelle, who had to take charge, tell them how to do things, use her people to get things done and keep on top of all them, I would most assuredly still be waiting to close. Things would have fallen completely apart. So, if you are looking to buy or sell the choice is simple - call Michelle!!!!!!
We needed to find an agent that could help us as we moved from out of state. I was very impressed at how knowledgeable she was with the area. She helped us find the right home in the right neighborhood because she listened to our needs. She quickly found out how much good schools and nice neighbors meant to us. She was eager to help us find the perfect house. We are very lucky we found Michelle because she worked hard for us and are very happy in our home.
Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $350K in Arlington, TN.
Michelle contacted me as I was trying to sell my son's house FSBO. She sold it in 2 days. A year later I contacted her to sell my personal house and she sold it before it was on the market. BAM! She's our Real Estate “Go To” Girl!
Listed, but didn't sell my Single Family home in 2012 in Arlington, TN.
We had our first house listed with an agent who A.) brought no traffic through so therefore; B.) couldn’t sell it in 6 months. We contacted Michelle who had absolutely fabulous photos made, had it SOLD in 1 day to a guy in Kuwait. She worked a lease-purchase out for us that was a win-win for both of us. We then had to sell another house and once again, she did it again. She sold it before it was listed and on the market. We love Michelle and highly recommend her!

Michelle made a difficult process much more manageable with great results. She gladly accommodated requests I made regarding a sales strategy and provided valuable and sound advice for the marketing, negotiation and ultimate sale of my home. We managed a very good price for my home and ALL parties were happy with the outcome! She sold our home in 5 days of having it on the market at more than list price!!!
I would like to take a moment and thank you for your agency’s assistance in purchasing and closing on our new home in Collierville this month, we’re actually scheduled to move in this Friday. Donna and I sold our home in Almadale Farms last August to embark on a mission of downsizing somewhat and capitalizing on the distressed market with what we thought would be a sixty-day adventure that turned into a seven month deplorable ordeal.
While I have an extremely controlling personality and believed that I was infinitely knowledgeable of the distressed real estate market and didn’t require any assistance, Donna and I missed a couple of wonderful homes and we decided to look for some assistance.
In late October after realizing that I wasn’t the distressed sale market expert I thought and needed some help in finding that bargain home, Michelle Amen contacted via an “internet” inquiry made to your organization and we began our journey.
While it’s sometimes difficult for me to slow down and commend people for their extra efforts, I would like to take this opportunity to praise Michelle for her efforts and patience. I’ve worked with numerous agents over the past thirty years, but none with the tenacity and drive that Michelle exhibited during our trying ordeal. I’m reasonable sure Michelle would say the experience was memorable, definitely one for the record book. At times Michelle’s persistence was the only thing that kept us on track when we derailed, especially when Donna and I were at different places. She should probably be a relationship counselor in her next life.
We were so impressed with Michelle’s knowledge and overall service level, we’ve praised her numerous times to our friends and acquaintances for future referrals; and have entrusted her with our youngest son with the purchase of his first home. We’ll definitely use Michelle again in the future and will continue to refer her to friends and relatives.
In summation, Michelle has not only achieved greatness in our eyes through assisting us with our home purchase, but we’ve also gained a good friend.
Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $250K in Arlington, TN.
As a new homeowner in the Memphis are, I'm elated to be affiliated with KWR, and have been taken care of by your BEST realtor, Michelle Amen. I first contacted Michelle while deployed on a United State Ship in the middle of the Indian Ocean. Within a few minutes, a unique trust had been accepted by your realtor. My wife and daughter were in Japan, and had just returned after being evacuated after the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami. She understood our circumstances, acknowledged our desires, and left every conversation with the same mission---Find the Taylor Family the Best Home! Let me be the last person to tell you, SHE DID! And she did it with Style!
Michelle went above and beyond the call of duty to answer our questions and arrest our worries, through numerous avenues. She posted secure, invite-only videos of the house and home inspection for my wife and me to view. Anytime we had a question, day or night (and we were 14 hours ahead in Japan), she was available. We had a daily conference chats via Facebook, and Michelle performed numerous video chats with my wife via Skype.
Michelle Amen expertly navigated the digital waters, and allowed our entire home purchase to be completed with over 9,000 miles between the new and old homeowners! Given truly one-of-a-kind situation, Michelle made this the best home purchase we have completed to date! THANK YOU!
Bought a Condo home in 2012 for approximately $675K in Collierville, TN.
Michele was a tremendous asset to us in the purchase of our new home. Her knowledge of the real estate market transcended the entire process! She was able to facilitate the negotiation of the contract in an unusually complicated transaction. Her contacts in the mortgage industry proved very helpful in finalizing our mortgage and demonstrating comparable for the appraisal. And most importantly, she went way beyond the call of duty in ensuring all the final details were successfully included and implemented in the final phases of construction. She was an incredible resource for us from start to finish. The amazing thing is she was not even our agent. She represented the seller and we were the buyers! I would definitely recommend her to anyone considering the selection of a real estate agent.
Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $175K in Cordova, TN.
Michelle Amen came highly recommended from another highly satisfied client. We took his glowing review to heart and put Michelle to the test. We have been through several ups and downs, as can sometimes be the case in selling a home. That said, Michelle kept us on target and on task. She never wavered when challenges appeared. She had a plan B for every situation and the experience to back it. And the most important thing: if you want to be successful, you need to listen to her advice. Michelle tells the truth and she knows her industry. She doesn't sugar coat but provides you the information you need to be successful, whether buying, selling or both. I can't tell you what a breath of fresh air it is to have an uber professional leading the team. And she has a team and they are awesome. I don't say this lightly and I am a critic at heart but this lady is the real-deal. You will not be disappointed. You will be able to rest, assured in the fact that you're in the best of hands. I am thrilled with our experience with Michelle Amen. Highly recommend.
Michelle was flexible to our schedule change when we flew in to look at houses. She went above what you would expect a relator to do for you when we ran into a few issues after going through the walk thru. She has offered help to us even after we have closed on our home. I know that if I call Michelle she will do what it takes to help me with any issue that I might have. She was great!
