Michelle worked with us over several days as we looked at homes to buy. She listened to our comments and adjusted the home we were shown to reflect our preferences. Within the week, we had found the home we wanted.
I have had the pleasure of working with Michelle on 6 real estate transactions in the Wilmington/Leland area. Being a real estate agent in another area, I had very high expectations for the agent that I would use and Michelle far surpassed them. She always answered my calls, spent a lot of time explaining the differences between my local market and her local market and most importantly negotiated well on my behalf.
I have been so pleased that I have referred several of my friends to her and she has treated them the same way she treated me. I would highly recommend Michelle for all your real estate needs!
I chose Michelle to sell my lot on the recommendation of a relative who lived in the area, whose house she had sold. She was wonderful! She is easy to talk with and never failed to promptly respond to any questions. She not only found a buyer, but because I live out-of-state, she helped me find someone to maintain the lot, she made arrangements to clear up storm damage, and she even followed up on a glitch in those arrangements. She was enormously helpful during the closing; her experience was invaluable when working with the buyer's attorney who was not too familiar with the process. I felt very lucky to have her as my real estate agent!
