"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 is also very friendly, and very willing to help."
"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."

"I would wholeheartedly recommend you to any of my friends."
"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."
"Thanks again for an amazing job!"
"We just wanted to thank you for your excellent service while we were searching for a new home, purchasing and settling into our new home. Your professionalism during the process was unsurpassed!
You have kept in touch and been incredibly helpful with providing references for service work on our house. Thanks again for an amazing job! We will recommend you to anyone we know looking for or selling a house."

"It’s nice to know that in this world of craziness, you’re there for us."
"We just want to say ‘thanks’ for all the effort and support you gave us in getting our home.
Your encouragement and availability made buying our 1st home the dream it is supposed to be – not the nightmare we have heard some of our friends go through. Even now your constant interest and friendship is greatly appreciated.
It’s nice to know that in this world of craziness, you’re there for us. We look forward to working with you again. PS: All the kids say ‘Hi’!"

"Thank you for everything 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."
"Her passion, commitment and follow-though is remarkable."
"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..."
"For anyone who is looking to buy or sell their home, I would recommend Michele in a heartbeat."
"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."
"Michele is amazing."
"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."
"...we can't recommend Michele Morrison enough."
"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."
