Testimonials

One thing I really liked about working with Michele was that she was very patient with me as a first time buyer. She didn’t mind showing me a million houses, some of them more than once. She didn’t pressure me and helped me make the right decision. I think she about fell over when I finally decided to make an offer!

There was already an offer on the house I wanted, but thanks to Michele’s skill we outmaneuvered the other would-be buyers. Notice I said ‘Out-maneuvered’ not ‘out-bid’. I later ran into other buyers and I’m sure they would have bid higher if we had given them the chance.

Michele handled things quickly and deftly, and we scooped the house from under them. There is no substitute for that kind of experience.

Michele deals with problems very quickly and efficiently, she knows the real estate market really well, and is extremely fast paced in everything she does. From the day we first saw our house until the day we moved in, was only one month. Michele is also very friendly, and very willing to help.

Thank you so much for all your help and support with selling our house in San Carlos. I understand that the latter half of 2006 did not represent a seller’s market in the San Francisco Bay Area. It is therefore all the more impressive that we were able to sell the house in less than 2 weeks at essentially our asking price.

Many houses for sale in our neighborhood had remained on the market for several months during the same period. My wife and I found you to be extremely knowledgeable and confident when it came to matters of pricing, staging, advertising and negotiating. The fact that we didn’t have to deal with any low bids shows that you are well aware of the appropriate worth of a home.

I am convinced that many – if not all – of your recommendations on renovating, staging, and presenting our home contributed to the quick sale. I was told that your salesmanship was very well received during the few open houses and private showings. Most of all, however, we appreciated your guidance through the bureaucracy of it all, and the long hours you put in processing our paperwork for us.

I would wholeheartedly recommend you to any of my friends. Please feel free to have any potential future clients contact me as a reference.

Why Choose Michele?

As a first time house buyer I really didn’t know what to expect out of a Realtor. But with Michele, the entire house buying experience was not as frightening as I had expected.

I enjoyed the time she had to spend with us, her flexible schedule enabled us to find the right house very fast. Although the actual house hunting experience was brief, Michele was there to aid us with those unexpected mishaps that occur on moving day.

It was comforting to know that I could turn to my Realtor for guidance, whether it be finding an electrician right away or a trusted handyman for future projects. Thank you for everything Michele.

Michele helped my wife and me find our dream home during one of the most aggressive buying markets California has ever seen. Her passion, commitment and follow-though is remarkable.

I don't often refer people as I have exceedingly high expectations but in the case of referring Michele, I have no reservations. She's assisted a few of my friends and many of my co-workers through my recommendation. Thanks Michele...

Jose's Recommendation (Video)

As a first-time home buyer we had a lot of concerns and questions. Michele met with my husband and myself and let us know what we could expect from the entire home buying process.

We found a house that we loved and Michele wrote an offer that was accepted in less than 24 hours. She kept us updated on a daily basis as to the closing of escrow and sometimes a phone call during the day just to make sure we were still sane!

For anyone who is looking to buy or sell their home, I would recommend Michele in a heartbeat.

After our Dad passed away, Michele stepped in to help us sell his home. We were heading into a buyer’s market, but Michele was on top of things every step of the way.

She always had a plan when things popped up that needed attention, and was extremely sensitive as to how difficult the entire process was for us.

Michele really went above and beyond at every turn and we can’t say enough good things about how her. She will be our only stop for houses we buy or sell in the future!

Michele is amazing. She listened to my desires and was able to find me exactly what I was looking for.

But that is not all. She did not drop me like a rock. When the Federal Government thought it was time to raise the stamp rate by 2 cents - she sent me 2 cent stamps. She sends interesting news monthly. Tax tips

...I feel like I gained not only a Real Estate Agent but also a friend.

When we were looking for a real estate agent to sell our condo, we interviewed four very highly rated agents. It was going to be our first time selling a property so we wanted to find someone experienced and honest, who would explain things to us, look out for our interests, and involve us in the process.

After careful consideration, we decided Michele Morrison would be the best fit for us -- and let me tell you, she did not disappoint. From the beginning, Michele considered everything from our point of view. She explained to us how to evaluate whether selling or renting our condo would make more sense for our situation (even though advising us to rent would not have been in her own best interest).

She provided insight into the level of detail she typically pursues to ensure the best experience for her clients, and we found her comments to be both informative and impressive. And she used her understanding of what we wanted and what flexibilities we had to offer (e.g., we could move out first, time was on our side, etc.) to develop a strategy to get us the best terms and offer possible. And, of course, her strategy worked.

Our home was repaired, touched up, staged, inspected, and presented so well that we couldn't have been more proud. Throughout the process, Michele was an excellent communicator. She was available by phone, email, and even text messaging as needed. She has a fun and snarky sense of humor which can make even the most stressful (or boring) parts of the process lighter and more engaging.

She also made an effort to get to know and understand us, so we were able to work together effectively, always on the same page. This was invaluable to us because we were able to develop a great level of mutual trust. As with all things in life, nothing goes exactly as planned. For us, we had to deal with an unforeseen HOA issue right in the middle of the selling process. We knew we'd have to disclose to the potential buyers (and thanks to Michele, there were many); but fearing the worst, we thought they might all change their minds.

Michele not only was able to make the best of the situation, she was able to show us the bright side of it all and reassure us. She gave us multiple options (including some we hadn't considered) and provided her recommendation among them. We chose to follow her recommendation and we never regretted it. What started out very well could have ended just as poorly, but it didn't. Michele had our confidence throughout the selling process and navigated through a nightmarish scenario magnificently.

In the end our lovely home had 36 disclosure packet requests, 12 outstanding offers, and one fairy tale ending. If you're looking for an excellent real estate agent, we can't recommend Michele Morrison enough.

We recently used Michele Morrison to sell my grandmother’s home in Saratoga, CA. We were concerned about needing to move my grandmother quickly, but we also needed to let her feel like she had control of the situation. Ms. Morrison was referred to us by my Realtor in San Francisco, even though I was no longer in California. My mother, aunt & uncle were not in the immediate area, so we needed someone we could trust to help get the house in order as well as sell it when my grandmother was ready.

Ms. Morrison was wonderful. She followed our suggestion to proceed slowly until my grandmother was ready to sell, and she did just that – she waited until my grandmother contacted her and said she wanted to sell. There was no pressure, no ‘harassing’ phone calls, just someone willing to work with us at our speed. 

She was also very helpful in tracking down information from the city of Saratoga regarding my grandmother’s home, and what exactly needed to be done to fix the house before putting it up for sale.

When it was time to sell the house, Ms. Morrison sold it quickly and painlessly for those of us out of town. She was in contact with the relatives who were legally involved in the sale, and she kept everyone else up to date.

It was a pleasure to work with Ms. Morrison. She was a Godsend. We could not have sold the house as quickly, nor gotten as much for it if it had not been for her professionalism and knowledge of the real estate market.

Having used a less than stellar Realtor to buy our current home in Maryland, we now appreciate the great Realtors a lot more, Ms. Morrison is one of the great Realtors.

Michele has helped my husband & I purchase two homes and sell one. She is very knowledgable about the market. Michele is a great asset in helping to negotiate terms and ensure the whole process runs smoothly.

We've bought & sold three other homes in the past, and she's the only realtor we've used more than once - because she's a professional.

We wanted to let you know how much we appreciated your professional expertise to quickly and smoothly transition us into our home. You clearly understood our special circumstances and requirements as well as accommodated our time constraints.

By providing us options while meeting our criteria you guided us from start to finish with ease; from viewing homes and having our offer accepted within three days of closing and beyond.

Your knowledge and quick responses eliminated stress and made this an enjoyable experience for us. Our new home, not to mention the yard, meets our needs perfectly.

Michele has handled the sale of two different properties for me in the last 3 years. The first property was my house in San Jose, CA, and sold 3 years ago. I had received Michele's name through a recommendation from a dive buddy in CA. My retirement was impending, and I was very concerned that I would be able to sell the house in a timely manner.

Since I had plans to move to North Carolina, and wanted to use the proceeds to pay cash for my new house in Morehead City. Following Ms. Morrison's advice, we did some preparation regarding the appearance of the house, and then put it on the market.

Within one day of the property being on the Multiple Listing, we had 4 offers, with 3 being $25,000 over the list price. After reviewing the offers with Michele, and at her advice, we countered the offer for an additional $5000. The buyer accepted the offer and escrow closed shortly there after. Michele's expertise and professionalism made the sale very smooth, and stress free. Needless to say, it didn't hurt to have the house sold for $30,000 over the list price.

The second property I listed was my deceased mother's home in Fremont, Ca. This was part of an estate sale for my mom's will. Michele helped me with the listing of this house as well. I had to wait a year for the Alameda Probate Court to issue Letters Testamentary so I had the legal authority to act on behalf of mom's estate. In the meantime, I continued to see property values drop, and of course the barrage of bad news about the California economy.

The sale was further complicated because mom had a reverse mortgage, and the loan balance exceeded the market value of the property. I also live in North Carolina, so the sale had to be conducted by telephone calls, fax, and email. This added to my worries about how best to handle the sale of the house. Once I was able to list the house, Michele did an excellent job of coordinating the sale with me, the estate attorney, the appraiser and the reverse mortgage banker.

Within 2 weekends of listing the house with Michele, we again had multiple offers, one that was $50,000, with it being an 'As Is' sale. With Michele's help, we accepted that offer. The house closed escrow just this Wednesday, July 3. During the sale process, Michele was in constant contact with me, and that helped reduce the stress of selling mom's home. Again, the results of the sale, and Michele's service far exceeded my expectations.

I want to thank Ms. Morrison for all her help. With her level of professionalism, great communication, and dedication, I would not hesitate to recommend her to any client. She surely is an asset to the Sereno Group.

Michele sold my house within 3 days from the time it went on the multiple listing! I had 4 offers with 3 offering $25K over the list price. Michele countered the offers by asking another $5K. The house sold for $30K over the list price.

Michele was at all times courteous, professional and attententive to detail. She returned calls withing the same day, and often within an hour. Other businesses should have this level of customer service.

The sale closed with no problems within 30 days after the offer had ben accepted. Michele made the entire process relatively stress free. I would heartily recommend her to anyone planning to sell their home.
