Bought a Condo home in 2015 for approximately $425K in North State, Santa Barbara, CA

Before working with Michelle I thought a realtor was an agent who showed you properties, negotiated the best price and then followed up with all the paperwork. I even thought I could find a property on my own but after working with Michelle I know a great realtor can find properties that you would probably overlook on your own and provide resources that leverage your money. As a first time home buyer I had some unrealistic expectations of what I wanted. Michelle educated me on all the important elements that give real estate its value in Santa Barbara and to live here I had to make some sacrifices. She patiently showed me all the properties that I wanted to see but steered me to a property that I had already passed up. Once she gave me insight as to how I could remodel and get the look I wanted, I realized she found the perfect home for me. Even though this was my first home purchase I had experience buying investment property and was prepared for the problems and delays in escrow and remodeling. I can't say enough about Michelle's advice and hard work starting with her referral to a lender that was able to give me a better rate then I thought possible and negotiating an accepted offer below asking to providing a list of A-grade contractors . Throughout the entire transaction she was able to keep me informed of the progress and proactive in all the requirements that enabled us to close in 32 days. This gave me the peace of mind that allowed me to focus on designing my remodel and scheduling contractors. Today, I am enjoying the mountain views that were not shown when I first passed up this property in MLS. Thanks to Michelle I have exactly what I want in a better area then I would have picked on my own. Now I have a new appreciation for what a great realtor can do for me and I highly recommend Michelle to anyone who is serious about getting the best value from a home purchase in Santa Barbara.

Bought a home in 2016 in Upper East, Santa Barbara, CA 93101.

We couldn't have asked for a more patient, friendly, hardworking and dedicated realtor! We were new to CA but Michelle was knowledgeable about every neighborhood we were interested in and provided thoughtful insight and feedback about homes, schools, everything. She worked tirelessly (and quickly!) to show us listings that fit our criteria, she was organized and quick to respond to our endless questions and she remained calm and collected through every step of the process. She made a complicated and expensive transaction seamless and smooth. We have remained in contact beyond the closing and we would definitely recommend Michelle for your rental or purchase needs!
